In a game a few weeks ago, Rick Porcello came up against Max Scherzer with 2 outs and the bases loaded. After the count went quickly to 0-2 and the announcers basically declared the inning over, Porcello hit a rope over the LF's head and cleared the bases. What made it amusing was the same thing that made the HR that bounced off Jose Canseco's head amusing. It was so unlikely. But for the most part, pitchers batting = feeble waving.

You forgot the exclamation point. That's supposed to read " Big Sexy's career BA is .084!"
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?

Sandy Koufax was regarded as the "Big Sexy" of his era (batting-wise). Awful. It was not uncommon for pitchers to hit close to .200 back then. Bob Gibson's lifetime BA was slightly over .200

Koufax was at .094

I thought home run derby concluded Monday night. Not your father's all-star game.
Yeah, well, that's like your opinion, man.

It's not my father's MLB. Tons of HRs and tons of Ks attempting to hit HRs. There will likely be MLB records set for both this year.

I was into baseball stats as a child. If you had told me that some day the Yankees would have more Ks than hits as a team and would be competing for the best record in MLB, I would have said you were nuts. But here we are.

Machado to the Dodgers is official. Got a bunch of prospects in return.

I've been singing the Mets song all day. They better not let me down.

Oh, the butcher and the baker and the people on the streets,
where did they go?
To MEET THE METS!
Oh, they're hollerin' and cheerin' and they're jumpin' in their seats,
where did they go?
To MEET THE METS!

So far, so good.

Familia looks like he's traded, though.

It was pretty obvious what was going on. It was a clear save situation and he didn't even stand up and start throwing.

Rumors have him heading to Oakland.
