The captain is back!

9 May

Derek Jeter went 4 for 6 on Sunday with two homers, signifying a possible return to form for Mr. Minka Kelly (not that someone dating Minka could ever be considered “out of form”). The Captain improved his batting average to .276 as a result of this recent outing.  So, well, what’s the issue Yankee fans?

Friday logos…oh, and games

6 May

Baseball logos are often similar, it’s true. But they seem especially similar when, seemingly all at once, clubs with like logos go head to head on the same day.

Even the dark blue cap in combination is similar. Probably helps that the Rays have equally good pitching to the 93′ Jays too.

In a recent interview with SI.com, Milano explained her penchant for classic sports designs, which will surely make her even more attractive in the eyes of male fans. She’s also a longtime Dodgers supporter, which is no surprise, given that it’s one of baseball’s best ever unis.
