Did you know that both his parents were ballet dancers and that he grew up in Germany?

Since that only gets repeated approximately every four times he bats I thought it might be a good idea to remind folks so nobody forgets.
He's no Steven Wright

How many times do you see it. The inning ends on a three-pitch strikeout, and the next guy up walks on four pitches?

Guy walks 2 in a row with nothing close and Beni swings at the first two pitches out of the zone.. now that I agree is fucking terrible.

Mookie can't handle inside heat, Benintendi can't find his balance, and JDM cant resist breaking ball slop down and away. What is going on?

Hey I don't have a problem with aggressiveness at all. But swing at something you can work with. Some of our guys get themselves out being over anxious.

I feel like Eduardo has had a handful of games where he’s kept his walks down and felt like he could turn a corner. But his ERA is pushing 5 and half the season is nearly over. He’s just not making the move we all hoped for.

This is a big game. Take two out of three from the first good team they have faced in a while would be nice. They had this pitcher on the ropes and just can’t seem to pull the trigger. No one depends on Erod for a clutch game. He just not that guy. They need to pull this one out.

Outside of Eovaldi I think he's been the most disappointing player on the team to me. He should be entering his prime now, he had a really good year last year, and he's taken a big step back right when he's starting to get more expensive.
