Things You May Have Missed While You Were Living Your Life
That’s it. The season’s over. Wait til next year, yada yada yada. So while you were busy downing weird punch before finding yourself talking to a animatronic wall decoration, and while the Giants were in a rush to end the season, other baseball stuff happened. And now, for the rest of the winter, it will all be other baseball stuff.
Some of that stuff:
Looks like Mark Grace is going to jail. Which, when you have multiple DUIs within a year and a half, is what you deserve.
Major League Baseball fast tracking protective head gear for pitchers. Hopefully the league will have something in place before there is an injury that kills someone. Doug Fister, Brandan McCarthy, and Juan Nicasio are all very fortunate examples from the past 15 months.
Jack White’s favorite ballplayer was utility infielder Stan Papi. Maybe we can get him into the OTFB utility league next year.
World Series ‘Shits’ to Detroit. Sometimes it’s okay to laugh.
Joe Girardi works really hard to protect Alex Rodriguez’s feelings. He was overheard to say, “They’re laughing with you, Alex, not at you.”
How the hell is “The Peppy Pirates” not sung before every Pirates game? Seriously.
Prince Fielder hates salad. Hates it.
Kenny Williams promoted. Ozzie Guillen is probably steaming.
