Unfortunately for Franchy, the exit velocity of a strikeout will always be zero.
Somewhere, Chaim Bloom is furiously…..oh, never mind.
5 HRs allowed to a lineup that looked quite feeble over the weekend in NY.Michael Kopech season debut: 4.2 IP, 7 ER, 5 HR. Relieved by old friend Jake Diekman.
Kopech was sitting 96 in the first and steadily lost velocity over the rest of his outing.
Yeah, Moncada, Kopech, and Luis Alexander Basabe ( released by the White Sox last year) were in the Sale trade.I was listening to that game in the car. Apparently Moncada is having the "best stretch of his career." BA over 400 so far. Same trade as Kopech, no?
Arroyo: If it was a 7 o’clock game, I’d take a nap from about 5 to 5:40. I woke up two times and Manny Ramirez was spooning me.
Curtis Leskanic, pitcher: I’d go in the hot tub about 6:20 for a 7 o’clock game. We were playing in Baltimore. David Ortiz put a big thing of blue Powerade mix in it. I couldn’t get that s— off me for two days, man. I was walking around like a freaking smurf.
Arroyo: Billie Joe (Armstrong) from Green Day is walking in the locker room and Kevin Millar is playing dumb and saying: “Hey, bro! Love the new record!” and starts singing “Wonderwall.”
Kevin Millar, first base/outfield: No, that was Staind. Mike (Mushok), the lead guitar player, I went up to him and started singing: “With aaaarms wiiiide open, uuuuuuunnnder the suuuun.” I was like, “Bro, I love your music!” He looks at me and was like: “No, dude, that’s Creed.”
Millar: (Julian Tavarez and Manny) had this drink. It was like whiskey and it was this Latin cocktail they’d shake up in this old bottle, like a big old Perrier bottle. They put all this stuff in it: a shot of whiskey, honey, lemon. Well, Manny had the idea of throwing in Viagara pills and didn’t tell anybody. We were all taking shots of this stuff and it was like: “Let’s go play!”
He is really happy not to need to wear a balaclava to play baseball.X with his 3rd homer already, slashing .429/.458/1.000/1.458. Guys on fire to start the year
I would put the over/under at 7, he will get some time in RF until Bader is back but then Judge will go back to RF and Stanton needs games there too, I don't think they'd risk him at LF or 1B very often, he could get some DH ABs as long as he sticks on the roster.
Maybe he has Matt Carpenter’s locker? 1.257 OPS in 14 ABs, I’m sure he was extra motivated against the team that just released him.Is the over/under at 7 just for the month of April?
It is the twilight zone if he figures it out after all this time.Unreal. Another in a long line of complete losers who get the magical MFY pixie dust boost.
“All this time” is about 700 MLB PAs over 6 years, not so much if you look at it that way. It’s hard to get a bad fielder a lot of PAs if he’s also not hitting, to be fair.It is the twilight zone if he figures it out after all this time.
“I’ve never done any kind of long-distance race before. We’ve done some training,” Holt said. “They gave us a little training regimen and we’ve been keeping up with that, not to the T, I think the longest I’ve run is about 12 miles. 26.2 is a lot longer than that, but I’m hoping the adrenaline and the fans will help get me to the finish line so fingers crossed.”
Ha...information that may only be funny to me...Franchy's B-Ref page picture has him in an Orioles hat. A team he never got an at-bat with.
We need an official catalog of the "Sons of" fake messageboards for every team. My only suggestion is that the Brewers' should be the "Sons of John Jaha."I assume on the Sons of Willie Davis message board they are kvetching about (looks up GM’s name) Brandon Gomes’ poor roster construction.
A ha!We need an official catalog of the "Sons of" fake messageboards for every team. My only suggestion is that the Brewers' should be the "Sons of John Jaha."
Jaha had too much of an established career. I nominate Billy Jo Robidoux.We need an official catalog of the "Sons of" fake messageboards for every team. My only suggestion is that the Brewers' should be the "Sons of John Jaha."
Ware's own Billy Jo.Jaha had too much of an established career. I nominate Billy Jo Robidoux.
So maybe this topic does merit its own thread...Jaha had too much of an established career. I nominate Billy Jo Robidoux.
That's funny and random. I just was talking with him last night. His son plays baseball for the University of Oregon and they were playing in Portland last night.A ha!
I saw it, LOVE Tito!!!MLB Network aired a Terry Francona documentary tonight. Lots of great stuff from Theo, Lester, Kipnis, Pedroia, Millar, and Schilling, who looks like shit. I'm sure they'll play it a hundred times this month and it's worth your 90 minutes next time they do.
Pretty good chance he won't know what the hell that isIn more "former Red Sox" Cleveland news, Manny Ramirez will be inducted into the Guardians Hall of Fame on August 19th.
Stuck at 4, not playing much anymore, botched a ball badly in a rare start today costing NY a run, 1 for his last 21 and down to .174 (.665 OPS), Bader back in a week or so. 7 might have been high.Is the over/under at 7 just for the month of April?
