Isn't Aardsma first overall among MLB players alphabetically?

e: Yes. And Zych is last overall among MLB players as well.

Yes. He ruined a perfectly cool little trivia question by bumping Hank Aaron from the top of the list.


Side note : Zych and Aardsma are the bookends on the all time Mariners list as well. Suck on that, Mike Zunino.

edit : Didn't realize Zych was dead last, but makes perfect sense if you think about it for 2 seconds.

If Altuve is borderline do you think he doesn't make the hall just because of the scandal?

Verlander is making it in regardless, not that he really has much blame being a pitcher.

He could have said stop doing this dumb poo poo banging a trash can?

But yea I think Verlander skates in no doubt because A.) He's extremely good and B.) His personal statistics probably didn't benefit in any way other than maybe WINS.

And drat lmao I forgot Verlander got there late in 2017. Imagine him walking into his first game and they have this loving trash can they bang on during at bats. How confused would you be?

Coming from the Tigers in 2017 Verlander was accustomed to seeing inexplicable garbage in the dugout.

All creative departments in every industry need to have a cutout of a swastika and then as a final step before any project can be called completed, someone must take the cutout and move it around any image to see if any pattern matches the cutout in any orientation. If it does, the project is scrapped and has to be started all over.

there is a separate and identifiable stage in any graphic design project*, whether it goes by the name "dick check" or something else easier to hide on a to-do list, where they literally have someone outside the project look at their materials to examine if anything looks like a penis (with or without testicles), a vagina, or any number of people in part or in whole engaging in sexual intercourse. that would also be when you check for the swastika

(* obviously some of them have skipped this step, with results clear for all to see)

There are going to be so many fake pitcher injuries to get around that minimum if a guy is getting shelled.

it's hard to get shelled in fewer than three batters

Lucas Giolito has a chest muscle strain.

Yasmani Grandal has a calf strain.

Gio Gonzalez has "discomfort" in his throwing shoulder.

Chris Sale has pneumonia.

Does the 3 batter minimum have to be consecutive batters? I assume so or can a pitcher face 2, switch to first base and then face his 3rd like at the start of the next inning or something

Until such batters reach base or are put out, that means consecutive batters right

Every single time I remember that "Here comes da pizza" happened I watch it half a dozen times and it's never not funny.
Beyond the pizza. Beyond Remy and his giggle.

How is it not the best thing ever that they threw up a "fan of the game" graphic as the pizza victim is angrily trying to figure out WTF happened?

If two 100-loss teams want to use 28 pitchers in a late-September game we should respect their choice to be unwatchable garbage.

I donít think itís a horrible idea in a total vacuum, but itís an incredibly stupid idea in practice and itís being implemented to try and fix a nonexistent problem that it has no chance of solving.

I always felt it should be more of a pitch minimum than a batter minimum. The pitcher who comes in, throws 3 pitches for an out, then gets yanked really bothers me for some insane reason. I dunno what the pitch minimum would be tho.
