Welcome to Diamond Reflections, a video wrap-up of yesterday's MLB action. In this post, we talk baseball, share a few laughs, and watch some highlights. Our friends at MLB.com don't allow embedding on recaps and highlights, so for now there are just links to the video. That will have to suffice until things get a little less hoard-y.
We've spent the extra money and bought some sections.
The only person who might be more invested in Linsanity than me and my AZN basketball homies (what up, @MrEddieHuang!) is an unknown emcee named Mega Ran, who recently posted a tribute song online. For the short turnaround time, it’s a solid effort — love the T.I. track, the slow flow, and how hard he reps the Ivy League.
We interrupt the moment of joy that Red Sox Nation is feeling in the aftermath of the New York Yankees' playoff exit to bring you what can only be described as the worst clip in the history of YouTube. That’s right, the worst. No exaggeration. (Eds note: Probably an exaggeration.)
There are really no words to describe what you're about to witness. The best we can do is say that this makes Fever Pitch seem Oscar-worthy, Courtney Stodden seem Grammy-worthy and Jersey Shore seem Emmy-worthy.
And if you happen to hate the Red Sox, well, then this is your crystal meth. Enjoy.

An exhibition game between Georgetown and the Bayi Rockets spiraled out of control Thursday, ending with an on-court brawl. According to the Washington Post, the game "deteriorated into a melee during which players exchanged blows, chairs were thrown and spectators tossed full water bottles as Hoyas players and coaches headed to the locker room at Olympic Sports Center Stadium." Yikes. Here's the video, and you'll find a link to the Post's account below.
