How do you think Dave Concepcion is worthy of the HoF, and NOT Barry Larkin?
if you rearrange the letters in "Randy Miller" and get rid of some letters and add some other letters, you get "Joe Morgan"

ESPN, for whatever reason, is ranking the best 500 players in baseball.


Here's the bottom 100. This will end well.
thank god they put links to player twitters for everybody that has one

the magic of technology just allowed me to ask J.D. Martinez (who the gently caress is J.D. Martinez) how it feels to be the 500th-best player in major league baseball

no for real who the gently caress is J.D. Martinez, I never even loving heard of this guy


e: apparently he was called up from AA by the Astros after they traded Hunter Pence, and played half a season of league-average baseball. Pretty much the entire Astros roster is a mix between "LOL THAT DUDE?" and "who the gently caress is that dude?" so it is entirely unsurprising that I did not know who he is.


e2: since the active rosters of every major league team total 750 players, this means that ESPN thinks that a generic 23-year-old outfielder is better than a full third of major league baseball right now

All I'm trying to say is that somewhere there's a man. And sometimes he writes about sports and sometimes he does not write about sports. I mean he can write about sports, but does not have to. When he does write about sports, he sometimes says interesting things. About sports. And sometimes he writes about these things on the internet on a certain social microblogging website. Sometimes he writes them to other people, sometimes he writes them to himself. But he is writing something, somewhere.

GET IT?
Sometimes, there's a man.

while there are a shitfuckload of reasons to hate Jeff Loria, the Marlins' attendance numbers have loving skyrocketed compared to what they were before (home attendance so far on the year is ~1.42M per ESPN, versus ~1.52M for all of 2011 and ~1.53M for 2010; they've already bested the entire season's paid attendance for each year from 2006-2009)

e: lmao I didn't even finish the article because the preceding paragraph was so dumb, but it also unironically features the line "Where is Nick Stavinoha when you need him?"
I just asked out loud, to nobody in particular, "Where is Nick Stavinoha?"

BB-R tells me that Nick Stavinoha is, apparently, batting .238/.324/.431 through 52 games with the Hiroshima Toyo Carp.

the idea of Pat Burrell beating up Jon Heyman (as well as, presumably, Kevin Millar and whoever else tried to stop him) will fill my imagination for the rest of the day

good thing Millar didn't get hurt though, wouldn't want him to be left with any big scabs
