Francoeur's teammates lock him in bathroom

Earlier this year, the Triple-A El Paso Chihuahuas pulled of one of the best pranks of all-time, when they convinced veteran outfielder Jeff Francoeur that one of his teammates has deaf and kept the prank going for a couple months. Even the team's manager Pat Murphy was in on it. Well, Francoeur was promoted to the Padres on Wednesday, so the Chihuahuas decided to honor Frenchy by posting a new video of him being pranked. Watch as the team locks him in a bathroom, forcing him to escape through the ceiling after being trapped for an hour. Those Chihuahuas sure know how to have a laugh at another's expense.

El Paso Chihuahuas get absurd new jerseys

We've seen a lot of crazy Minor League promotions and alternate jerseys recently, and the Padres' Triple-A affiliate El Paso Chihuahuas are definitely getting in on the craze with these jerseys. The El Paso Chihuahuas have got to be right up there with the Indian's Double-A squad, the Akron Rubber Ducks, as the team with the least-tough mascot name.

Everyone tips cap to Jeter in new commercial

Check out Derek Jeter's new Jordan commercial which debut on Monday, just in time for the All-Star festivities in Minnesota. The spot features a who's who of celebrities and sports stars along with working-class folks and fans paying homage to the Yankees' captain with a tip of the cap.

Even Jeter's biggest rivals can't help but pay homage to the Yankees legend. Jon Lester and some Red Sox fans are featured along with some blurred out "Mets" players and a blurred out Mr. Met mascot, which was pretty funny.

The ad also features cameos from Carmelo Anthony, Billy Crystal, Tiger Woods, Phil Jackson and Jeanie Buss, Jay Z, a slew of his Jeter's former Yankees teammates and His Airness himself, Michael Jordan.

I was also suprised to see my favorite rapper, Action Bronson, in there as well. Looks like he's big time now.

Mariners do great 'Turn Down for What?' dance

Watch as Mariners pitching coach Rick Waits joins in on righty Tom Wilhelmsen's tradition of dancing to "Turn Down for What?" during batting practice before Seattle was topped 8-1 by the Twins on Wednesday at Safco Field.

Awesome to see an older dude like Waits let loose and go absolutely apeshit with a dance like this to share some laughs with his players. I love the part where Waits tosses his glove high in the air and then a player punts it. Great stuff. Party on M's!



Rangers introduce two-foot long 'Tanaco'

Well, as the age-old adage goes: Everything's bigger in Texas. And that's certainty is the case when it comes to tacos at Globe Life Park in Arlington, where the Rangers unveiled their new two-foot long monstrosity on Monday.

Though similar sounding, "The Tanaco" has nothing to do with Yankees righty Masahiro Tanaka. The item's name comes from combining the words "Taco" and "Nacho."

The Tanaco features a foot of seasoned ground beef and another foot of seasoned chicken topped with lettuce, nacho cheese, sour cream, pico de gallo and jalapenos.

It looks like the Rangers might have been influenced by the D-backs after Arizona introduced an 18-inch corn dog stuffed with cheddar cheese, jalapenos and bacon earlier this season. Whatever the case, things like this are why other countries hate us. But if other countries want to hate us for eating two feet of taco while watching America's pastime, so be it. This is how we roll!
