Cubs backup catcher throws inning, gets win, scores winning run


John Baker’s number should be retired after his night at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs played the longest game in franchise history on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, winning in the 16th inning, when backup catcher John Baker pitched a scoreless top of the 16th, led off the bottom-half with a walk, and scored on a sacrifice fly.

There are so very few chances for backup catchers to become legends. In 50 years, though, some grizzly fellow in the left-field bleachers will yell John Baker’s name, and the crowd around him will toast frothy mugs of moon ale in his honor. Here’s Baker getting a double play to get out of the top of the 16th:


Here he is scoring the winning run:


A list of the 10 most recent position players to get a win:

Player Date Tm
Chris Davis 2012-05-06 BAL
Wilson Valdez 2011-05-25 PHI
Brent Mayne 2000-08-22 COL
Rocky Colavito 1968-08-25 (1) NYY
Willie Smith 1964-05-06 LAA
Willie Smith 1963-07-19 DET
Eddie O’Brien 1957-09-14 (1) PIT
Johnny O’Brien 1956-07-03 PIT
Jimmie Foxx 1945-08-19 (2) PHI
Lefty O’Doul 1923-04-26 BOS

All of the box scores are worth clicking on, especially the one where Brent Mayne vanquishes the evil John Rocker.

John Baker, you are suddenly a Cubs legend. Enjoy the free pizza-related casserole at every Chicago pizzeria for the rest of your life.

Karrueche Fires Subliminal At Chris Brown After He Likes Coupled Up Flashback Flick W/ Rihanna


These days, not much can be done on social media without the world weighing in and nobody knows this better than celebrities in relationships. Yesterday, Chris Brown got put on blast after fans spied him “liking” a photoshopped Instagram photo of he and Rihanna in bed together and now it looks like Karrueche is having some Insta-fun of her own in response.

Ryan Zimmerman reportedly has Grade 3 hamstring strain


Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman has already been on the disabled list for a week, but he could be sidelined for much longer. Zimmerman reportedly has a Grade 3 strain of his right hamstring, two baseball sources told William Ladson of MLB.com.

A Grade 3 strain is the most severe type of strain, in most cases involving a significant if not total tear of the hamstring. As Ladson noted, Zimmerman “could be out a while.”

The Nationals have not confirmed the severity of the injury to Zimmerman.

Zimmerman, 29, is hitting .282/.345/.456 with 19 doubles and five home runs in 53 games in 2014, his 10th major league season. He already missed 44 games earlier this season with a broken right thumb.

The Nationals, at 57-47 a half-game ahead of the Braves in first place in the National League East, have relied on second-year man Anthony Rendon at third base in Zimmerman’s absence. Rendon is hitting .280/.339/.464 with 13 home runs and 26 doubles this season, and has started 74 games at the hot corner.

Rendon was doing so well that for a brief period when Zimmerman was healthy he moved to left field, starting 26 games at the position, before ultimately moving back to third and Rendon shifting to second base.

Mohawk Cubs Fan is the ultimate dedication / maybe waste of time


We salute you, Mohawk Cubs Fan. Although, you know, maybe take up a hobby or something besides Cubs hairdos.

It’s hard getting excited for a Chicago Cubs game. The future is bright, but they’re the only team in the NL Central below .500, they’re well, well under .500, and, well, you know, they’re the Cubs. That didn’t stop this guy:


Not only did he a) grow hair long enough to form an enormous mohawk b) spend the time — hours? — to make that mass of hair into an enormous mohawk c) spend the additional time to color in a Cubs logo (albeit one that I would imagine is only forwards on one side) d) then actually go to a Cubs game. Specifically one that ended up going into extra innings, so that’s even more time.

That’s incredible dedication to support a somewhat unworthy cause in 1/162nd of a season, and it’s everything that’s great and scary about sports fandom.

Also, it sorta looks like Sonic the Hedgehog’s hair,so that’s good.

Aaron Harang’s beard is a modern marvel


The titian glow around this pitcher’s face is actually human hair.

Aaron Harang’s beard, guys. Look above at how readily it flexes to accentuate his expression. Look how it straightens perfectly at rest:

It look likes a watermark, like you shouldn’t be able to see it unless you hold it up to the light.

It looks like someone outlined his face with a big orange pen, then tried in vain to erase it.

It looks like someone hit “select all” on his face, then did a drop shadow effect.

And we haven’t even discussed the chin region:

Screen_shot_2014-07-30_at_12.00.36_am

It’s horrifyingly straight. Like, I’m pretty sure he pressed an actual ruler up to his lower lip then shaved around it. I am appalled and perplexed and fascinated. I want to study this beard. I want to ask it questions.
