That 2-2 called a ball would have hit the ump in the chin with him setup on the inside corner. Called a ball because catcher set up away and reached across.

Dumb.

Hey, Vin, it was about both Bobby Thomson's shot heard round the world and the rubber game of a three game playoff to see who will go play the Yankees. That was bigger than this ALDS game unless 1951 is not as important as 2021.
Yeah, who the fuck is this Vin Scully asshole?

Kapler’s a walking example of why you shouldn’t try to shave a jawline into your beard.

Fun game so far. Ruf has seen two pitches, hit them about 795 feet total, and flown out twice. I thought the Giants going after Knebel and Graterol early in the count made sense, but would like to see them start working the count against Urias here in his second inning, and try to make him throw some pitches.

Pinch hitting for Yastrzemski... How many times was Carl pinch hit for?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carroll_Hardy

Most diehard baseball fans know that Hardy had the honor of being the only player ever to have pinch-hit for Ted Williams, but few know that his pinch-hit résumé goes well beyond this claim to immortality: he was the only player to pinch-hit for Carl Yastrzemski, Williams's replacement in left field, and also pinch-hit for Roger Maris.

I read that Ruf is the all time leader in RBI in Korea. Not bad.

edit: nope, I checked. he led in the time he was there.
