Abreu fouled one of his instep/ankle, hopped around in pain for a minute, stepped back in and launched a bomb

Jose made Puig look overmatched and was smiling the entire AB.

I love it. For some reason others don't. Broadcast just kept showing as if it were a story.

Stanton missile makes it 2-0.

I believe Alfredo Simon has better numbers than every single one of these guys and is left out. Poor guy.

Why Stanton gets anything close to the strike zone thrown to him by a soft tosser is beyond me.

Rotoworld Forums' 2nd best Badass with 6 warning points.

Most of what I post is for giggles. Please do not take me seriously when I'm venting about a pitcher that just got bombed or a hitter in a 2 for 20 slump. It's all for effect and trying to make all my fellow rotoheads chuckle, so don't be "that guy", yeah you know what I'm talking about.

Today marks the second straight start where he has incorporated an absolutely filthy change-up to go along with his fastball and the Defector. I don't even to know what to say other than I have no idea how people are going to hit him at all if he has remotely decent control.

3 + pitches that include a 98 fastball and one of the best slurves in the game? GTFO

Did anybody see what happened in the braves game? I heard part of it, something about taking the run or taking 1st and 3rd?

I need Volquez to fail getting the QS.

With the way the Jays have been swinging, (outside of yesterday's error-fueled game), I'm not liking my chances.
I back the realest and original Polanco :-)

Wil Myers inside the park HR. Ellsbury jumped for the ball and it bounced off the wall in Right-Center. Beltran lazily was not backing up at all, then made a horrible relay throw.
