DeAndre Jordan Sorry, Dodger Fans ... Astros Only Lost to Keep It Interesting

11/1/2017 11:28 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Hope all the LOS ANGELES Clippers fans don't get too pissed about this ... 'cause one of their own, DeAndre Jordan, is going AGAINST L.A. saying the Astros are gonna take the World Series.

FYI -- DeAndre is from Houston ... but still.

We got Benedict Arnold leaving the Dodgers game Tuesday night, decked out in Houston gear, and asked him if he's disappointed the Astros let a closeout opportunity slip through their fingers.

That's when Judas told us he wasn't concerned at all, and that his Astros were just trying to make things interesting by taking it to 7.

Hey DeAndre, if you love Houston so much why don't you marry it?

Rick Fox Game 7 Nerves Can Ruin People 'I've Seen Guys S**t Their Pants'

11/1/2017 10:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rick Fox has played in multiple Game 7 situations -- and never lost -- and he's got some serious advice for the Dodgers ... DON'T CRAP YOUR PANTS!!!

The ex-Lakers champ -- who has won 3 rings -- says he's seen what pre-Game 7 jitters can do to a player ... and it ain't pretty. 

"I've seen guys throw up in their mouth. Sh*t their pants. It happens, man. It's stressful."

The big question -- WHO CRAPPED THEIR PANTS? 

Here's a list of some of the Lakers who were on Game 7 teams with Fox: 

Shaq, Kobe, Derek Fisher, Tyronn Lue, Glen Rice, Robert Horry, A.C. Green, Devean George, Mark Madsen, Brian Shaw, Samaki Walker

There are others ... but, c'mon ... it's gotta be Mark Madsen, right??

Diplo Ballin' Out On Game 7 Tix ... Prices Skyrocket!

11/1/2017 6:34 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Wanna be at Dodger Stadium for Game 7 tonight? Better be RICH AS HELL ... like Diplo

The best seats in the house are selling on StubHub for $50,000 EACH (Dugout Club, right behind home plate) -- and the cheapest tickets (upper, upper level) are still hovering around $1,000. 

So, if you're gonna buy seats ... ya gotta have bread.

Enter DJ Diplo -- who reportedly made $28.5 MILLION in 2017 -- and happens to be a huge Dodgers fan. 

We got him leaving Mastro's in Bev Hills after Game 6 -- and he told us he'll 100% be at the game. Price didn't seem to be a concern. 

Good for Diplo. Viva Los Doyers. 

Alice Cooper Kershaw to Close Game 7?! ... Big Unit Did It.

11/1/2017 6:17 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Alice Cooper is a baseball junkie -- and says he's convinced the Dodgers will BEAT the Houston Astros in Game 7 Wednesday night ... thanks to one big reason. 

The rock legend was leaving Craig's in L.A. on Halloween when we started talking World Series -- specifically, Clayton Kershaw saying he's ready to throw if need be. 

That's when Cooper brought up Randy Johnson -- the former Arizona Diamondbacks starter who came in as the closer in Game 7 back in 2001 ... and CRUSHED IT!

Big Unit threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings in that game -- beating the Yankees and leading AZ to their only World Series title. 

Can Kershaw folllow suit? Cooper says hell yes. 

Astros HR Family We're Coming To L.A. For Game 6!!

10/31/2017 2:59 PM PDT

The Astros fans who went viral after tossing Yasiel Puig's HR ball back on the field are takin' a freakin' private jet to L.A. ... and will be inside Dodger Stadium for tonight's W.S. game!

Vim Head -- who's wife caught Puig's 9th inning bomb, only to have it snatched by his bro -- tells TMZ Sports he was contacted by a friend with a plane who wanted to give 'em a ride to Los Angeles.

“Someone offered to fly us out in a jet. We will be in L.A. [tonight] for the game. Sitting front row, left field.”

We talked to Vim yesterday afternoon ... and he told us no one had yet offered them tix or a ride ... but if someone did, they'd be there, ready to throw back any Dodgers home run balls.

Note to LAD sluggers... avoid left field. 

Yasiel Puig Autographs Ball to Honor Vegas Shooting Victim

10/31/2017 7:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Yasiel Puig didn't let the intensity of the World Series -- and Tuesday's Game 6 -- stop him from doing something awesome to honor a victim of the Las Vegas shooting who was a Dodgers super fan.

Laura Shipp was one of the nearly 60 people killed in the massacre, and was described by her family and friends as a lifelong fan of Big Blue.

We're told Puig heard about Laura's story and last night decided to do something for her son Corey -- a Marine reservist. He autographed a baseball with a message for Laura.

He wrote, "To Laura, RIP" and added his signature. We're told the ball will be delivered to Corey today before Game 6 begins.

Go Blue!

Astros Home Run Couple We Planned to Throw Ball Back ... 'We're Not Mad!'

10/30/2017 12:44 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Houston Astros fan who stole Yasiel Puig's home run ball from another fan and threw it back on the field did NOT get his ass kicked ... turns out, it was all part of the plan. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Vim Head -- whose wife Sarah caught the ball -- and he told us the guy who snatched it was his brother, Kirk

Vim says before the game they ALL agreed that if they caught a Dodgers HR ball -- it was going back on the field ... no matter what! 

The only issue ... Kirk acted so quickly, he robbed Sarah of the honor of the throwback ... but there are definitely NO hard feelings! 

"We had so much fun after the fact that it didn't matter," Vim says. 

At one point in the HR catch video, it looks like Vim winds up to smack Kirk -- but Vim says that didn't happen. 

So, what's next? Vim says he wants to go to Game 6 ... in L.A. ... and if someone gets him tickets, he promises his family will throw any Dodgers HR ball back again!!!

Bun B Grabs Local News Mic Goes Off Over Astros Win!!

10/30/2017 7:35 AM PDT
Breaking News

This is pretty awesome ... if you're an Astros fan! 

Bun B was ALL THE WAY TURNT after his Astros beat the Dodgers on Sunday night -- he found a news camera, grabbed the mic ... and WENT OFF ON LIVE TV! 

The Houston rapper is a HUGE 'Stros fan -- he stayed at Minute Maid Park until the very last out (past midnight) ... and you can see from the live ABC 13 broadcast, the adrenaline was pumping hard. 

Yeah, he messed up some scoring math (twice) but who cares?! This is raw emotion at its finest. 

There's more ... during the game, Bun B was hangin' in a VIP suite with fellow Houston rapper Paul Wall and celeb jeweler Johnny Dang -- and captured the walk-off madness on video. 

Game 6 is in L.A. on Tuesday ... wonder if they can keep this energy up???

Scottie Pippen Makes Offensive Comments About World Series

10/30/2017 6:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

C'mon, Scottie ... you're better than this! 

Hall of Fame basketball legend Scottie Pippen -- who's now living in Los Angeles -- gives zero craps about the World Series. 

He honestly doesn't even know who's playing in it.

So, while the rest of the city -- and the sports community -- was up crazy late watching one of the greatest offensive games in World Series history, Pippen couldn't care less.

He was super nice with TMZ Sports on his way out of Delilah in West Hollywood -- but told us straight-up, if the Cubs aren't playing ... he's not interested.

Dodgers vs. Astros Championship WAGS Of The World Series NL vs. AL

10/28/2017 12:15 AM PDT

The Dodgers and Astros are slugging it out for hardball supremacy, but we here at TMZ Sports decided to take some time to give props to the real MVP's of the series, their hot WAGS.

Obviously these two teams are both championship level, but when you see what the guys have waiting at home, you'll understand just how much each team is already winning. 

For the L.A. boys we got the WAGS of Justin Turner, Alex Wood and Kiké Hernandez.

But the guys from deep in the heart aren't slacking either, bringing out the big guns -- Kate Upton -- and the WAGS of OF Jake Marisnick, Tony Kemp and Carlos Correa.

You're welcome.

J.J. Watt Houston's Hero Tosses First Pitch ... On One Leg!!!

10/27/2017 5:29 PM PDT
Breaking News

J.J. Watt didn't let a little thing like a broken leg keep him from throwing out the first pitch in a HUGE Game 3 of the World Series in Houston ... and obviously -- the crowd loved it!!!

Watt's a hometown hero for raising more than $37 MILLION for Hurricane Harvey relief ... so you gotta think the fans will give him a pass for the pitch to Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel being juuuuuuust a bit outside.

J.J.'s season with the Texans is over after having a season-ending surgery a few weeks ago ... but clearly he can still have an impact on the baseball field.

The Astros are all tied up with the L.A. Dodgers at 1-1 ... so time will tell if Watt gives them an extra lift for the W.

Peyton Manning Controls Crazed Dodger Fans ... Like NFL Defenses!

10/26/2017 8:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Here's Peyton Manning sliding in the pocket, audible-ing his protection, and keeping the ultimate cool all while being besieged by an unrelenting bull rush ... of World Series fans at Dodger Stadium!

The retired NFL quarterback was chillin' at Game 2 with Houston Astros owner Jim Crane, but it was when he was leaving the stadium that he displayed all the poise that made him one of the greats.

The video is actually quite amazing, Manning signs autographs, takes selfies, moves the group forward, and directs his driver to get in the car (to get him the hell out of there) like he's conducting an orchestra. 

G.O.A.T.

Vin Scully Declines Joe Buck's Offer No World Series Cameo

10/26/2017 6:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Vin Scully has respectfully rejected Joe Buck -- telling TMZ Sports he won't accept Joe's offer to return to the broadcast booth for one last inning ... and it's breaking our hearts!

After Vin threw out the first pitch of Game 2 at Dodger Stadium, Buck -- who was calling the game for FOX -- said he would personally hand deliver the mic to Vin if he would consider coming back ... if only for an inning. 

After the game, Vin told us it wasn't gonna happen ... saying, "No, I'm done."

As Buck pointed out, Vin spent 67 years with the Dodgers -- and he's as close to royalty as you can get in L.A. 

Still, hopefully he'll change his mind ...
