I love baseball, but having the World Cup going on for a month at this time of year is the best thing a sports fan could ask for. The NBA and NHL just ended and we are in that summer funk while we wait for football season to ramp up again.


I'm sure Bud Selig doesn't like it, but having soccer on every day really breaks up the monotony of early summer baseball.

Yesterday was your typical Tuesday with three World Cup soccer games and a full slate of MLB action.


The Good

Brock Holt was making his first ever major league start in center field last night for the Boston Red Sox. When Jonny Gomes lost a fly ball in the twilight sky...it was time for Super-Brock to come to the rescue.




The Bad

This one is as obvious as they get for anyone who watched the World Cup games yesterday. Russian keeper Igor Akinfeev totally gaffed on this shot by South Korea’s Keun-Ho Lee to allow the Koreans to go up 1-0 mid-way through the second half. Russia later tied the score and the game ended in a 1-1 draw. One point instead of three points for the Russians could be very important when the Group Stage comes to a close.

The Ugly

Johnny Cueto of the Cincinnati Reds had a horrible at bat in the fourth inning of yesterday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Cueto is no Travis Wood when it comes to handling the lumber at home plate, and with runners on first and second Johnny was asked to bunt them over. Cueto failed on two bunt attempts and was then caught looking on a 93 mph sinker from Pittsburgh starter Brandon Cumpton.

As he made his way back to the dugout, Johnny Cueto attempted the ultimate baseball tough guy move of breaking his bat over his knee...fail. He played it off well, but you know that had to hurt both emotionally and physically.
