Pool Beers With Alex Banister, Lab Shotgunning A PBR & BC Shirts Continue To Be Spotted


Cody Friggin’ Bellinger

Are you kidding me right now? I was sitting at my dad’s house over the weekend catching like two innings of the Dodgers-Reds game and Bellinger (he’s only 21!) smashed a waist high fast ball about half the way up the seats in right at whatever they call that ballpark. Last night…I’m barely watching Mets-Dodgers…and Bellinger smashed a ball into the right field seats. Not some long pop fly that barely makes it over. It was a laser. That’s his third home run since I was at my dad’s house.

Guys, it’s time you stop what you’re doing and catch Bellinger ABs. He’s just under Bonds’s home runs per AB average for the 73 HR season.

His game log this month is getting ridiculous:

Megyn Kelly’s Alex Jones Interview Got Worse Ratings Than an America’s Funniest Home Videos Rerun

Megyn Kelly’s Alex Jones interview was more uneventful than its actual content previously suggested. Deadline reports that per early ratings reports, 3.5 million people watched the episode of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, making it the lowest viewership her new Sunday show has received in its short run.

It Looks Like Alex Jones and Megyn Kelly Are Set To Destroy Each Other’s Careers

Not long ago, we brought up that Rebel Wilson was suing a media outlet for defamation and I’ll admit, my initial thought was, «You’re suing because someone is publishing your correct age and background? Good luck with that!» Well, she won her suit! Good for her. — (Lainey)

Three weeks into her stint as a journalist for NBC, Megyn Kelly has created considerable controversy with her decision to interview Sandy Hook truther Alex Jones, who is calling the piece — which airs on Sunday night — a hit piece, a smear job. Jones apparently taped the pre-interview, and says he has proof, I guess, that Kelly was being dishonest with him. He also says that he has the full interview, which will put into context the edited hit piece. I don’t know what’s going on, but seeing these two try to destroy each other? I’m here for it. (THR)

Commissioner Gordon Mayor Garcetti and LAPD Chief Beck are lighting the Bat-signal tonight in LA to honor the late Adam West. — (LATimes)

Demi Moore, who still looks ridiculously amazing even without a front tooth, says she lost a tooth due to stress. Like, it just fell right the fuck out! I’m seriously seriously hoping she’s talking about a veneer or a cap and not an actual tooth, because dear god, I don’t need more things to stress about. — (Celebitchy)

A blimp crashed and caught fire near the US Open at Erin Hills in Wisconsin. The pilot is ok, thankfully! I grew up seeing the Goodyear blimp (which this was not part of the Goodyear fleet of airships) fly overhead almost daily and then later worked up the street from the blimp hangar. I haven’t seen a blimp/airship that looks like this one in, oh, I don’t know, 30+ years? If ever, really. That one kind of looked like a giant balloon. — (JSOnline)

The jury in the Cosby case is deadlocked. That’s depressing. What’s more depressing (or infuriating — yeah, infuriating is a better word) is Keshia Knight Pulliam (Rudy from The Cosby Show) walking all arm-in-arm with the rapey jagoff. — (Dlisted)

Ladies, is your vagina still leaking that pesky menstrual blood and disturbing your «quiet night studying», «The Big Game», «weekend brunch», «day drinking», «boardwalk on your longboard» (yeah, I don’t know…), or your «book club»? Well! Worry no more! Remember the unbelievable idiot behind the Mensez «Feminine Lipstick» that glues your snootch together so you don’t bleed out or something like that? Well, that unbelievable idiot is unbelievably back with a NEW product that still has no idea how women’s bodies work. h/t AsscrackBandit roctavia— (Patheos)

Lorde may or may not be an onion ring expert! I don’t actually know and truthfully, you guys? I don’t actually care. I just wanted to use this time to remind everyone that Lorde’s new album is FINALLY coming out tomorrow! I have been waiting, like, 2 years for this. It feels like Christmas Eve. — (LG)

TK eloquently wrote about the Public Theater earlier this week. And now here’s a fantastic interview with the artistic director, Oskar Eustis, at the Public. He roasts both the NYT and Fox over the Caesar play. — (NYTimes)

Book of the Month Subscription Box featured The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo this month and it looked really interesting. Now Go Fug Yourself is offering you the chance to win a copy! — (GFY)

This? Just because:

The Mama loves Judy Blume, but did not love her most recent book, In the Unlikely Event. Told mostly in a series of vignettes, the story is good, but dispassionate in places. It just doesn’t have the magic of earlier books. Did we know that Judy Blume is still writing books? (Cannonball Read 9)

And finally, these lovely and thoughtful women did *not* make me tear up. I don’t care what anyone else says!

Megyn Kelly’s Interview With Alex Jones Got Her Dropped As Host Of A Sandy Hook Benefit 

wenn31460755

One-time Fox News sweetheart Megyn Kelly made her debut on NBC News a little over a week ago with a Vladimir Putin interview, and it was supposed to be a real fucking get, or something, but it left some people screaming at her to take a long course at Howard Stern’s Night School Of How To Really Interview A Bitch, because she didn’t get anything out of him. Megyn is getting shit again and this time it’s for an interview that hasn’t even aired yet. On Sunday night, NBC will barf up an interview that Megyn did with conspiracy theorist and “performance artist” Alex Jones, who thinks the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre was a staged government hoax involving actors. Because Megyn gave a platform to a tinfoil hat-wearing ass nugget, she’s been dropped as host of a Sandy Hook benefit and her Sunday night show has lost a sponsor.

A piece of Megyn’s interview with Alex is about his theory that Sandy Hook was a hoax. Well, who knew that when you interview a Sandy Hook truther, a Sandy Hook benefit will let you know that they want nothing to do with you. The Washington Post says that the organizers of an annual gala for the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, a nonprofit gun violence prevention group founded by family members of some of the Sandy Hook shooting victims, has let Megyn go as host. I know, Megyn Kelly hosting a Sandy Hook gala is a WTF in itself.

“Sandy Hook Promise cannot support the decision by Megyn or NBC to give any form of voice or platform to Alex Jones and have asked Megyn Kelly to step down as our Promise Champion Gala host. It is our hope that Megyn and NBC reconsider and not broadcast this interview.”

Chase has also washed their hands of Megyn Kelly and have pulled their ads from her show.

It doesn’t seem like NBC is going to drop Alex Jones’ interview. Liz Cole, the executive producer of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, said that they’re serious journalists and it’s their job to interview people in the news no matter how gross they are. Liz said that people should watch the interview before getting outraged. Megyn spit up her own statement, saying that she also gets the heaves from Alex Jones’ Sandy Hook theory, but that as a serious journalist, it’s her job to “shine a light.” 

Even Alex Jones himself wants NBC to drop his interview into the shit can. Alex calls his interview with Megyn a “hit pieceand says the show misrepresented” his views on Sandy Hook.

So let’s see…

Megyn’s NBC News show hasn’t even been on two weeks and so far not many are impressed, she lost an advertiser and the smegma dingle she interviewed isn’t happy with her interview. Outside of NBC Studios right now, Tamron Hall is cackling into the air as Billy Bush and Kathy Griffin stroll in with their resumes to let HR know that they’re available Sunday nights, and any night really.

A Ranting Alex Jones Is Asking that His Megyn Kelly Interview Not Air on Father’s Day

This is my new favorite thing today!

Sarah went to Gwynnie’s Wellness (with a capital «W») retreat, «In Goop Health» (no, seriously, that’s what it’s called) and in addition to a bag of $ 85 rocks, she got to experience Goop. — (Lainey)

I NEED ALL OF THESE! — (Nerdist)

Megyn Kelly’s new NBC newsmagazine is not making friends with either side of the political spectrum. The left is furious that Kelly and NBC would give a platform to Sandy Hook truther Alex Jones (and at least one advertiser, JP Morgan, has pulled their ads for the episode), while Alex Jones is also pissed, calling Kelly «cold and robotic» and claiming that the interview is a «hit piece trying to destroy independent media» that make fathers look bad, which is why he doesn’t want it to air on Father’s Day. (Also, because Alex Jones is terrible father). (Uproxx)

If you missed the Tony Awards last night, you might have missed the orchestra trying to play Bette Midler off. Hahahahaha. You don’t tell Bette when she’s finished speaking. Bette finishes when she’s damn good and ready. — (Dlisted)

Also at the Tonys was Mary Beth Peil, who most people would recognize from Dawson’s Creek, but whom I recognize as Peter’s mother from The Good Wife. She looks fantastic and is my new inspiration for aging beautifully. — (GFY)

I feel like I’ve said this so many times, but here it is again: REPRESENTATION MATTERS! And you can see it here in this small sampling of adorable childpeople who saw Wonder Woman. — (The MarySue)

Barron and Melania have moved into the White House and awwwww, doesn’t the First Family look so joyously happy to be together again? That hand-holding doesn’t look awkward at all. — (Jezebel)

Amanda Bynes is back and sober and ready to work, and I just love her so much, I hope she’s happy and feeling good! I also hope she does another movie with Charming Potato because I would buy it and watch it over and over even though my husband would say, «Are you seriously watching this stupid movie again? Is this supposed to be funny? I don’t get it.» HYPOTHETICALLY. — (Celebitchy)

Jessica Chastain got married over the weekend and she looked just lovely! But really? What the shit was Anne Hathaway wearing? — (LG)

Have you watched Curtis Hanson’s film L.A. Confidential? Bea Pants is here to tell you that compared to James Ellroy’s book L.A. Confidential, Hanson’s movie is the happy parts of a Pixar movie. Elroy’s Los Angeles is "dark, mean and merciless." Though not for the faint hearted, L.A. Confidential is a smartly written book. (Cannonball Read 9)

Meet Alex Middleton — Girlfriend of Oregon LHP David Peterson


Our last MLB Draft prospect profile belongs to Oregon left-handed pitcher David Peterson. Baseball America has him ranked as their 17th-best player available on their big board, and the fourth-best lefty behind Brendan McKay, MacKenzie Gore, and DL Hall.

MLB.com’s scouting report on the Oregon lefty:

A strong junior season helped Peterson improve his Draft stock. The lefty racked up the strikeouts for Oregon, including a 20-strikeout effort against Arizona State on April 28, with a strong fastball-slider combination. Peterson’s fastball sits in the low 90s, while his slider is an above-average offering. Peterson also features a changeup and a curveball. At 6-foot-6 and 240 pounds, Peterson has a strong, durable frame that will allow him to continue starting. Peterson also has good command and has kept his walk rate down this spring.

Where the final mock drafts have David going:

BA: No. 17 (Mariners)
MLB.com: No. 17 (Jim Callis); No. 19 (Giants/ Jonathan Mayo)
Keith Law (In$ $ $ ider): No. 16 (Yankees)

Off the field, the probable first rounder is dating Alex Middleton, who attended Baylor University.

Meet Kelsey Barrett — Girlfriend of Florida P Alex Faedo


It goes without saying, but most people don’t give a damn about the upcoming MLB Draft. You know, a 40-round grind loaded with unknown players from random high schools and JuCos is a tough sell for the casual baseball fan — not to mention MLB Network’s Harold Reynolds talking out of his ass and providing nothing insightful.

However! Team BC will try to get you guys to at least care about the first round by dropping some prospect WAGs. Today, we have Florida pitcher Alex Faedo, who is one of the top college arms in the country and surefire first rounder.

MLB.com’s scouting report on the righty:

Faedo started the spring closer to the bottom end of his 90-94 mph fastball, but as he got his feet under him, he was sitting 93 mph and touching 95 more consistently with good sink. His slider has continued to look like an out pitch, though some feel he’s been throwing it too much. Faedo threw his changeup more over the summer, showing a good feel for it, and it should give him a solid third offering in the future. He tends to be around the zone, though he’s more control over command.

MLB Pipeline has Faedo ranked as their 11th best available prospect while Baseball America has him 10th.

Off the field, Faeodo is dating fellow Florida student Kelsey Barrett.

Alex Wood and Suzanna Villarreal’s Wedding Registry


Am I committing a crime as an Angels fan if I get Dodgers lefty Alex Wood and his lovely fiancee, Suzanna Villarreal, a present for their upcoming November wedding? Probably, but I don’t really care. No one has given a damn about the Angels-Dodgers freeway rivalry for years now — plus, Alex has done SO much for my fantasy baseball team (and Bovada bankroll) this month that it’s only right I return the favor.

Per The Knot, Alex and Suzanna are registered at CB2, Williams Sonoma (WS), West Elm (WE), and Pottery Barn (PB). Such an LA move going upscale across the board, but I respect it.

Our favorites from each spot:

  • WS Doughnuts Cookbook ($ 14.95)
  • WE Mongolian Lamb Throw ($ 499)
  • PB Blonde Wood Wine Trough Monogram ($ 99)
  • CB2 Seville Gold/Cream Sugar Set ($ 29.95)

Dodgers fans should go ahead and bookmark this page just in case Alex does big things in the postseason.

Sidenote: I’m leaning towards the donut cookbook.

Alex Rodriguez’s Game Notes Include ‘Birth Control’

It’s been a fine week for Alex Rodriguez — he’s reportedly jumping into the “Shark Tank” as a guest judge (a great honor for the CEO of A-Rod Corp), he’s still dating Jennifer Lopez, and he’s making his broadcast debut for Yankees-Royals on FS1.

Considering that we’ve already seen Alex do top flight studio work, there’s really no doubt that he’s going to kill it in the booth. Just look at him down on the field getting tidbits from Aaron Judge to discuss on air:

The Fox Sports: MLB Twitter account also dropped a nice photo of the ever thorough Alex doing pregame homework (saved by @bgardnerfanclub):

Everything seems normal except for the fact that Alex writes notes like a crazy person (use the lines!). Oh, and that “birth control” and “pull out stuff” are mentioned:
