I hope they cut him (or the MLB equivalent). He's been a huge waste of time.
Time for my one-month checklist.
Angels at .500? Check.
Starting pitching no good? Check.
Wasting the career of Mike Trout? Check.
Yep. Everything normal.
You forgot your Ohtani check!
Ohtani injured and not starting? Check.
Wait...he's injured already?! I thought he was still cruising!
Ohtani scratched from tonight's start after being hit on the elbow with a 93 mph fastball.
He's pre-arb, so they can just send him to the minors or outright release him. But the guy is only 23 and a year ago was ranked as the ninth-best prospect in all of baseball--given that he won't hit arbitration until 2023, it would seem ... premature to declare him a lost cause already. Very few pitchers at 23 are pitching CGSOs or even being reliable innings-eaters.
Dustin May's hot season is already over: He's getting Tommy John surgery.
I still think the guy injured opening a jar of mayo is tops on the dumb sports injuries list.
Perhaps as a pitcher but he still played as a batter and did pretty well for one at-bat at least.
Not the one hurt while putting on his pants? What about Quintana, who cut his pitching hand doing dishes?
Who the hell is Donnie Stevenson
Pfft, those are nothing. Think of the real all-timers. Off the top of my head I'm thinking of Sammy Sosa throwing out his back while sneezing, Glenallen Hill falling through a glass table after waking up from a nightmare and thinking he was covered in spiders, Clint Barmes falling and breaking his collarbone while taking deer meat into his house, Jeremy Affeldt goring himself trying to separate frozen hamburger patties, Marty Cordova sunburning himself by falling asleep in a tanning bed, Joel Zumaya fucking up his wrist playing Guitar Hero, Vince Coleman getting eaten by the automatic tarp at Busch Stadium, Adam Eaton stabbing himself in the stomach while trying to get the security label off a DVD, Rickey Henderson giving himself frostbite from leaving an ice pack on too long ... Man, baseball players are not exactly MENSA candidates. There was also John Smoltz burning himself because he tried to iron a shirt while wearing it. And a Brewers pitcher I can't remember who had to go on the DL because he fucked up his middle finger with a pair of salad tongs.
I need a vid. Was he using a knife-end to losin' the lid?
The Cubs put Nico Hoerner, Jake Arrieta and Dan Winkler on the IL, while Pedro Strop has taken personal leave from the team for unknown reasons and is at home in the Dominican Republic, with no word on any expected return.
I knew this season was going to suck, but, Jesus, the wheels are falling off the Cubs so damn hard and it feels like Grandpa Rossy is just throwing darts at the lineup card. Kris Bryant in center? Yeesh.
Happ is day to day and I'm assuming he was saving Heyward for game 2? KB was in CF for a little while Sunday, but in RF this afternoon. Right now Bryant's bat is the one you really want in the lineup every game.
Javy could use game 2 off after three fielding errors in game 1.
Javy's pressing, badly, so far this season and I can't help but wonder if it's because he's in his walk year and he's playing for his contract.
Life is a Base-ball Bitch. As my Gramps used to say and it is True. It bounces one way and then it bounces the F'in other. Be ready too slap leather and catch it as it comes.
