Eh. He's a newbie and he's a pitcher so he probably has been instructed NOT to slide or otherwise take too many risks on the basepaths.
3-5-3 DP is rather rare, right ? Can't remember one, even in our SHIFT times...
Let me tell you a story about how Delmon Young throws.
When I was in high school, I went to a lot of trips with my church youth group. Depending on the outing, we’d take classes or do team-building activities or do Bible study or do some kind of work in the community. But we had downtime, in which we’d play cards, or listen to music or play some sort of game.
That’s how I wound up, from ages 14 to 18 or so, playing hundreds of hours of Ultimate Frisbee, a perfect game for a bunch of teenaged boys with tons of space and time, but little capacity for organization. During those hours, I got very good at throwing the frisbee. I could go overhand, underhand, sidearm, backhand and all sorts of things that people who wear shorts and hemp jewelry and shower far too infrequently will spend hours and hours bending your ear about or demonstrating for you.
When I was in college, though, I was playing a game of Ultimate, and I got a finger caught in the lip of the disc or something, and the frisbee, which I’d intended to put 50 yards downfield, actually wound up behind me. It was a tremendous embarrassment, and since then–and this is 100 percent, absolutely true–I’ve had the yips about throwing a frisbee. Can’t do it. I’ve got Steve Blass Disease for the frisbee. Which kind of makes it more like Chad Blass disease, but you get the idea.
Anyway, when a guy who, at least in part, throws a baseball for a living, does this…
…that’s not good. You don’t want a guy trying to prevent a key run in the World Series to remind me of myself trying to throw a frisbee after I contracted the yips.
Aren't most promotions limited?
Adams with a two homerun day.... 7-1 Cardinals.
7-1? Are you from the future?
Mets TV just put up a graphic indicating that the Nats the most average-ish of average teams.
Fredi Gonzalez is burning through his bullpen in a tied ballgame. What could possibly go wrong?
Looks like Wainwright isn't going to get a complete game today. About to hit the 100 pitch mark, and Rosenthal is warming up.
There is hope for the Braves: Fatty McTubbybutt is now compressing the mound so a non-shutdown inning is in the offing.
If Davis goes yard here, there is no way this Yankee team even gets the tying run to the plate today.
