Ah, spring training.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are going back to their roots in 2016.

Back in 1979, the Pirates won the World Series. They haven’t won it since but are certainly hoping the new alternative uniforms will spark some throwback magic.

Many moons ago, San Francisco Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford was a fan of the team.

Legendary WWE Broadcaster Jim Ross Says He Wants to Call Games for the Pirates

Everything is better with Jim Ross broadcasting it.

That includes baseball.

The legendary WWE announcer hosted a Twitter Q&A on Sunday, and one fan asked him about the possibility of calling games for the Pittsburgh Pirates:

Ross was all over it:

Can you imagine Ross calling a walk-off win or a huge play from Andrew McCutchen?

The only thing better would be Jerry Lawler yelling “Look out!” every time someone makes contact.

Wale Drops Bryce Harper-Themed Song Called ‘MVP’

It was about time someone made a song honoring Bryce Harper.

On Wednesday, rapper Wale did the honors. Always one to throw out sports references in his lyrics, the Washington, D.C., native included all types of baseball analogies in the three-minute song appropriately titled “MVP.”

The beat goes pretty hard, and Wale flows over it well. Here’s the chorus:

Got the streets talking, when I swing on me.

Do my thing all year. You know the season long as s–t.

Got the seats all filled. I’m the reason y’all here.

Errybody talking, feel like I’m Bryce Harper.

Stephen Strasburg, Dusty Baker, Scott Van Pelt and the late Stuart Scott all get name-dropped, too.

Blue Jays Fans Start Site to Keep David Price in Toronto

Blue Jays fans want David Price to stay in Toronto—badly.

So, to their credit, they’re doing something about it.

Head over to “Any Price for David” if you want to see just how passionately Jays fans want the lefty ace back. Here’s how it works: “If David Price stays in Toronto, I, [insert name], agree to [do something].”

Some are lighthearted, of course. Orissa Fletcher will buy Price some Dairy Queen. Peter LePiane will name his next kid “Price.” Dovejot Parmar will dance like Cam Newton after every strikeout.

And some are weird, which you can investigate yourself.

After reading those, Price might move as far away from Canada as possible.

Blue Jays Fan Misunderstands Reporter, Loses Her Mind over ‘Free Tickets’

Communication is key—especially when it comes to free tickets that aren’t really free.

While getting interviewed by a reporter about her beloved Toronto Blue Jays, this fan misheard the question, “So you’re getting tickets for the next round?” as a definitive statement.

The thing is, though, she wasn’t getting any tickets. It’s a shame all that enthusiasm will have to go to waste. 

She’ll likely be hoping for a Blue Jays comeback, as Toronto is facing a 3-2 ALCS deficit heading into Friday’s Game 6 at Kauffman Stadium against the Kansas City Royals.
