Jim Nantz caught on tape!!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEo6v9CN0Xk

April 4th, 2011: Amazing hidden camera footage of what appears to be CBS announcer Jim Nantz rehearsing his final buzzer Nantzisms as he drives to Reliant Stadium in houston. (Or what I think is going through his head). Ode to Jim Sackel for inspiration.

BSG and Manny Ramirez

BSG and Manny Ramirez

There’s really no good reason Manny Ramirez should ever be chasing a wiffle ball bat for someone, we don’t know why he did it for us, but he did.  Thanks Manny.  The AP says what this is better than we could.   “Gar Ryness is known as the ‘Batting Stance Guy’. He does impressions of major leaguers in their batting stances. Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez loved his mimickry.”  “Loved” is a relative term.  Enjoy.

Justin Verlander’s No-Hitter

Justin Verlander’s No-Hitter

Tonight the Twins and Tigers kick-off a four game series in Detroit that will most likely decide the AL Central.  With neither team in wild card contention, the stakes are high.  The good people of motown gotta feel good about this one being a home series.  Tomorrow night, they’ll feel even better if Justin Verlander has an outing like June 12th, 2007.  BSG is here to help your remember it.

Welcome to the first of our new semi-weekly series, BSG’s Who to Watch!

So we’ll be breaking down a different batch of hitters each week, starting with the NL East. Enjoy!

Gibson vs Eckersley

Gibson vs Eckersley

The winner of this week’s video poll, and the first of many FSN/BSG Classic Moments we’ll be sharing with you here on the site, is none other than the Kirk Gibson’s game winning HR off Dennis Eckersley in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series.  It’s all there folks, the Magnum PI staches, the fist pumps, Tommy Lasorda’s gut, it’s really just as good as it gets.  To make things extra fun, we’ve included the original footage.  See if you can tell em apart.  Here’s a hint, in the real game they used a ball.  Enjoy!
