Pitching is such a vital part of the game, as far as winning is concerned.

On most teams the set up man has become more valuable, on others not so valuable.

Something to keep in mind — it’s raining lightly. The infield could be very wet on ground balls.

What is a drop and drive pitcher? He is a guy who drops and drives. Very simple.

So by guessing right you might have guessed wrong.

Giambi walks too much. He’s always clogging up the bases with all that walking.

As a new day begins in New York, the sun sets in Hawaii.

If football is a game of inches then baseball is a game of inch.

If that ball had more elevation, it would have been a home run.

If the double play is a pitcher’s best friend, what is a fielder’s choice? An acquaintance?

It’s better to have a fast runner on base than a slow one.

One thing about ground balls. They don’t go out of the ball park.

The reason we call that pitch up and in is because the arms are attached to the shoulder.

He wears his hat like a left hander!

Any ball that goes down is much heavier than any ball that stays on the same plane.

The blood on his sock looks exactly like Oklahoma!

You don't want to use too many statistics. The ones that apply to a July or August game won't be relevant on Saturday.

Matt Kemp Can Catch a Ball, but He Can’t Catch a Break

Just so we’re clear here: Ryan Braun — a player who should be serving a fifty game suspension — pops a weak sac fly into center field, where Matt Kemp snags it and instantly fires it home. The Brewer’s third base coach gives Nyjer Morgan the hold sign — because he knows who actually deserved the NL MVP last season, and he’s scared to death of him — but Morgan ignores him and goes for it. The throw arrives, the catch is made, the tag is easy and the umpire calls him…. safe?

Fucking safe?

Go and look at the picture at the top of this post. Safe?

But then maybe that’s how they do things in Milwaukee, where they race wieners, inject testosterone, and play baseball indoors, like degenerates and perverts.
