No matter how long you've watched baseball, you still see things you've never seen before. Case in point, in yesterday's A's-Tigers game, Oakland outfielder Yoenis Cespedes hit a comebacker to Detroit pitcher Al Alburquerque, who kissed the baseball before throwing it to first to retire Cespedes. Alburquerque's actions did not sit well with A's players.

Esquire just named Mila Kunis the Sexiest Woman Alive. Gee, after seeing these pictures, I wonder why?
There Is Nothing More Useless Than Deleting
The ridiculous infield fly rule call (which could lead to a great marketing opportunity for St. Louis) in the Cardinals-Braves game feels like a hundred years ago at this point, but we couldn't pass up the chance to highlight some Twitter stupidity. Right after the controversial ruling, MLB deleted a line from its official Twitter bio. The line? "We don't understand the infield fly rule, either."
