I think they might try to do a Chapman and trade then re-sign him. Would be a hell of a thing, though.

What was that site a few years ago where you could look up any pitcher in MLB and there would be gifs of their full repertoire of pitches? Is that still around?

That it is.

E: I'm sure some old dude was complaining about speed guns that could track pitch velocity way back in the day. More data is better than less data, harder hit balls are better than soft hit balls.

Baseball's always had an obsession with pitch speed.

This is video of Bob Feller being tested against a motorcycle that was supposedly traveling at 86 miles per hour. Feller beat him to the target, despite the motorcycle having a head start.

Giles also did his dumb hulk celebration last night after striking out Stanton, despite the fact that it was his first out and he allowed a double and a single right before it.

He's clearly cuckoo. His interminable ritualistic routine before every pitch drives me loving nuts. Getting an enormous William Blake illustration tattooed on his back and sharpened teeth to show to batters before the pitch would somehow complete the clear insanity of this goofball.

His wife sent him a prospective date for the c-section and he said they play the Cubs that day so could they do it a different day and he or she threw in the thing about seeing Rizzo as a joke. It's not like he skipped the birth or something. Also it's like 2 months from now.

It's sad, but I'm not particularly surprised; I was skeptical when I heard the Ms were going to resign him and with Haniger and Gamel producing, there really isn't room for him in the outfield.

I like how he counts the replay as "another" bat flip.

I mean, if that's a "World Series celebration" that's just sad.


edit: Its ok, guys.

quote:

I want to apologize for a tweet I sent out last night in the heat of the moment. It was seconds after Yankees catcher, Gary Sanchez, hit a go ahead home run:

I obviously donít want Sanchez to be hit in the head next game. I never would cheer for something like that because itís beyond my character as a human being.

That being said, I still think Gary Sanchez should be hit in the next game. The Houston Astros are WORLD CHAMPIONS. This was a May 1st game and about the 30th game played of the season. There is still well over 100 games left in the season. Sanchez acted like he hit a World Series clinching home run and that, in my honest opinion, is out of line and unnecessary. Especially when you are facing a WORLD CHAMPION!

Facing a World Champion should garner some respect. If this was against the Rays, then it would be a little different, but itís against the WORLD CHAMPIONS. Something that Sanchez canít call himself. And maybe that has to do with the way he carries himself on the field. If he acted more professional and respected the game more, maybe he would be a WORLD CHAMPION.

Like I said earlier, I hope he doesnít get hit in the head. That would be awful and I am not condoning that. I apologize, but letís not act like he shouldnít be hit in the next game because that would be a lie.

Has that dude never seen a bat flip before? On a scale of No Flip to Jose Bautista that was like a Kris Bryant.
