Myrtle Beach Pelicans manager Joe Mikulik has a history of demonstrative reactions to calls that he feels have been made in error. He has thrown bases, poured water on home plate and re-enacted the plays in question for the umpires' benefit. To the best of our knowledge, however, he had never incorporated leaving pieces of his uniform on the field into his routine -- at least, not until Sunday:
Bravo, Joe Mikulik. We don't know whether the umpire made the correct call or not. All we know is that we get you. We've all been there.
Gentry Stein, 18, won the 2014 World Yo-Yo Contest in Prague just a few days ago, and judging from this video, he totally deserved it:
Seriously, this guy is better at yo-yoing than any of us have ever been at anything. We could barely even "walk the doggie" without almost seriously injuring ourselves.
You might have seen Sim Bhullar playing for New Mexico State in last season's NCAA tournament. He's tough to miss -- Bhullar stands at 7-foot-5 and is listed at 360 pounds.
Sacramento Kings fans might be seeing more of Bhullar soon, as they signed him to a contract Friday. Kings owner Vivek Ranadive has expressed interest in expanding the NBA's footprint in India, and making Bhullar the first NBA player of Indian descent could be a big step in that direction:
He's a bit of a project and is a long shot to make the Kings' roster this season, but check him out next to 6-foot-11 DeMarcus Cousins in a recent practice:

That's a dude who could potentially block a shot or two.
Pedro Martinez is almost definitely going to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, and he'd like Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens to join him. Martinez and Clemens were inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame on Thursday, along with Nomar Garciaparra and broadcaster Joe Castiglione, where Martinez said that he believes both Clemens and Bonds' numbers before accusations of steroid use against them broke would warrant induction. They're running out of time to pass the 75 percent threshold -- players' eligibility was recently reduced from 15 years to a mere 10.
