We can dance if we want to,
we can leave Marle behind.

People really act like that man is really that bad in the 8th like every single time he's come in so far he hasn't been coming into like 2 runners being inherited.

We're scarred by a couple of appearances where he threw the game away with runners on in the 8th

Hey guys, how annoying is drum guy in person? If I got seats near him he'd probably be dead after a few innings, but the people sitting around him in the odd shot they are showing seem chill with him. Or resigned I guess.

He's a staple at Indians games, everybody tunes him out. He's basically just part of the game audio here.

Man, you should come to a Japanese baseball game sometime. There's an entire loving marching band playing in the stands and there's official team fight songs that fans practice then sing together during the game.

This is the most Japanese thing I've ever heard of.

Aside from your next anecdote, which is going to be that after the game the fans pass a garbage bag down each row as they sweep their area clean and respectfully fold up the seats.

Either way, Drum Guy got nothing on Ronny Woo Woo.

I feel like Chapman doesn't throw that many strikes but hitters just have to swing so early they swing at a lot of balls. Is there any stat to back this up?

Yeah we could look at OSwing% and Zone% and such.
E: Outside the Zone Swing % and % of pitches in the strike zone that is haha. They're on fangraphs.

When he got his first hit of the game he yelled it at someone in the Cubs dugout, or possibly Rizzo

Hmm, I guess it makes more sense that he'd be yelling at one of his own teammates and playing around, but still, he could be saying something else. I've replayed that clip about 1000 times now, I'm not 100% sure he's saying "you suck my dick!" 3x. :shrug:

Even if this was true, Cleveland is still objectively worse for sticking with this ridiculously inappropriate team name/mascot.

I mean, no Schwarbombs yet but eh, whatever, I'll take a couple RBIs from the fresh-off-the-DL guy and a Cubs win! :toot:

I work in pharmacy, and I can say without exaggeration that "Taltz" is perhaps the worst trade name I've ever heard. :stare:

Maybe, but sometimes he just doesn't have his command, particularly when he comes in outside the 9th and it isn't a save opp.
