What's that? The Yankees didn't make the playoffs? Again? Oh, my bad. I just thought with the media talking up Derek Jeter so much that he must have won the Triple Crown and led the Yankees to the division title. Really? He batted .256? You know what, let's move on.

My snark aside, if you want to spot some big time celebrities during the 2014 MLB playoffs this October, you're still in luck even without the Big Apple ...

Celebrities Who Should Host Saturday Night Live

Celebrities Who Should Host Saturday Night Live

, whereas some bomb terribly like January Jones, Michael Phelps and Paris Hilton. Most likely if Lorne Michaels invites the celebrity to host again, it's a good sign like Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin, John Goodman, Tom Hanks, Christopher Walken, Drew Barrymore, and Jon Bon Jovi. A few other phenomenal past hosts were Justin Timberlake, Steve Carell, Tina Fey, Jon Hamm, Britney S...
