Cincinnati Reds, a popular team on the internet

(By OCAL, courtesy Clker.com)

Every baseball fan knows the popular teams due to history are the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals.

According to the Cincinnati Business Courier, the Cincinnati Reds are among those teams as well.

The Reds were ranked 10th in the latest Yahoo! rankings of the most searched Major League Baseball teams on the world wide web in the past year.

Cincinnati plays in the smallest market of any of the top nine most searched teams, but finished higher than teams in much larger cities Philadelphia Phillies (11th) and the Chicago White Sox (13th).

The Detroit Tigers, the defending American League champions are first followed by the Yankees.

Ravens, Orioles can’t work out conflict; Super Bowl champions begin season on road

The NFL has no choice but to have a rarity occur with its Super Bowl champion.

The Baltimore Ravens, who defeated the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl back in February, will be celebrating their title with a road game to start the 2013 season.

The NFL had sought the help of the Baltimore Orioles and Major League Baseball to move a game from the evening to the daytime, but to no avail.

The Ravens play at M&T Bank Stadium and the Orioles play at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The two stadiums sit next door to each other and they share the same parking lots, so the teams try to avoid playing at the same time due to traffic problems.

The NFL traditionally has its reigning champion open at home and had the Ravens playing at home on Thursday, September 5. But the Orioles already had scheduled to play the Chicago White Sox that evening.

The NFL is looking to set up a celebration in Baltimore to honor the Ravens with a pre-game concert even with the team playing on the road.

Chicago White Sox 1B/DH Adam Dunn’s 40-homer season during the 2012 season, allowed him to become just the sixth player in major league history to belt 40 or more homers in a season in the National League and the American League.

In the N.L., the 33-year-old hit 40-plus homers in a season four times for the Cincinnati Reds (2004-2007) and 40 homers playing for the Reds and Arizona in 2008.

The five players who accomplished the feat before Dunn includes: Darrell Evans with Atlanta and Detroit, Shawn Green with Toronto and the Los Angeles Dodgers, Ken Griffey, Jr. with Seattle and the Reds, Mark McGwire with Oakland and St. Louis and Jim Thome with Cleveland, Philadelphia and the Chicago White Sox.

Dunn is a 2-time All-Star, 2002 with the Reds and 2012 with the White Sox. He has 406 career homers and 1,018 RBI’s.

Dunn has also played for the Washington Nationals.

Podsednik’s travels: Boston to Arizona back to Boston

The 36-year-old journeyman batted .387 with one homer and seven RBI’s for the Red Sox before being sent to Arizona back on July 31.
