A few weekends ago, I wrote myself a note, reading “Jose Bautista — oppo.” I watched Bautista hit a home run to right field in Yankee Stadium, and I figured that might be the sort of thing worthy of a post. Bautista generally clobbers his dingers to left, and I thought maybe there could be something there. I thought also that maybe, just maybe, Bautista had a history of going...

WATCH: Snoop throws out first pitch at Blue Jays game

Snoop Dogg threw out the first pitch at Tuesday night’s Marlins-Blue Jays game at Rogers Centre, and let’s just say he did a much better job than 50 Cent did. Snoop used a solid wind-up to hurl the baseball toward home plate. It sailed a bit to the right and was not a strike, but  Jose Bautista caught it with ease.
