Go home Henry, you're drunk.

I'm sure the catcher really enjoyed that game.  Nothing like diving every which direction over and over in full catcher's gear to make your day.

Corky Miller's back in the league? Why didn't anyone tell me?

Would he had gone to first if it struck him?

Well, if that were true, I don't think I'd have my own personal troll.

I mean, if NO ONE liked me, why bother?

Love or hate him all you want, but nobody can deny he is usally spot on with his baseball knowledge.

No love or hate. Just "is". A little less pretentiousness & belittling one know-it-all at a time.

Well, yet again, you've attempted to make a claim without any data to back it up.

When will you learn?

DeWayne Mann: When will you learn?


I will if you do. This is not the 1st time i've told you this.

Anyway...i'm not here to teach you anything today. Just popped in to watch Henry almost hit himself in the head. I saw you there and figured I would say hi. I hope all is well.
I'm actually kind of busy today.

Which is why it took you 4 posts before you said anything remotely related to that.

Uh huh.

Geeze, man...you're kinda acting all paranoid and stuff.

FTFA:  Here's the video. My favorite part is Miller quietly watching the ball head toward Rodriguez's head, just waiting to see what happens.

Which is weird, because right before the ball comes into frame Miller shouts something at Rodriguez - which I assume is a "heads up" (or more likely a garbled yelp of "whup!" as he noticed/flinched/whatever).

That or he was yelling at Rodriguez for having no idea where he was throwing the ball and to get off the field before someone got hurt.

I almost expected Corky to say something to the Washington catcher out of professional courtesy.

He was atrociously wild last year.  He can throw 100mph, but he can barely throw balls the catcher can catch at that speed.  Hitters should know by now just to stand in the box and hang your bat on your shoulder and he will walk you.  And he shouldn't be getting any borderline calls from any umpires because if he hits a corner of the strike zone, that is just pure luck.  He has no ability to paint a corner on any type of consistent basis.

Damn, I was hoping the pitcher had some herky-jerky wild ass pitching motion where in his follow-through and upon release, he actually hits himself in the back of the head.

You're not the only one.

I remember a few years ago I had Wandy on my fantasy team, and he went on the DL for "mouth sores" so severe he could only swallow rice pudding. I now refer to both herpes and rice pudding as the "Wandy Rodriguez Special"

He has been fairly accurate so far this year but you are right he was awful last year

"Nice velocity."

"Sounded like it..."

How is this guy pitching in the majors?  And didn't the Nats have a decent team just last year?
