Being the most exciting play in baseball is like being the prettiest girl at a Juggalo convention.

Nonsense. Runner on 2nd and a single to the outfield. Play at the plate?

It's called hitting for the tricycle.

Greg Maddux legging out a triple replaced the Kentucky Derby as the most exciting two minutes in sports. (I really miss Skip Caray.)

I grew up A Dodger fan during the Garvey/Lopes/Russell /Cey era. I've followed them through the great and lean years. I just can't get on the Puig bandwagon. The kid is talented, but he has more baggage than LAX on Thanksgiving. I know it's heresy but I'd trade him in a minute for Mike Trout.

I was actually at the game a few years ago when Denard Span tripled three times against the Tigers, though the second two probably would have been doubles were Magglio Ordonez not playing right field.  We all lustily booed as they pitched around and ultimately walked him in his last at-bat.  It was my first, and to date only, game at Target Field.

//I slowed down the video as well as I could and I'm pretty sure that first one was a home run, deflecting off of the guy behind the fence, not on the fence.

IMHO it is the suicide squeeze.

a triple means the batting team royally screwed up

Is there a player, other than perhaps this year's Kershaw, that  any team wouldn't trade for Trout? (Especially when age is taken into account.) Offer him straight up for anyone, and, except perhaps for $$$ issues, he's gone.

I would trade Kershaw for Trout in a heartbeat. just saying

I'm sure if he didn't stop to admire them, they would've all be inside the park homers.

If that's a heresy, you managed to find the dumbest church in the world.

If you're talking about that first one last night, I'd have to agree

I worked for a couple elf MLB teams, we all had to sign our name for the pre-game meal (so Aramark knows who to bill), Skip Caray, year after year, always signed "Adolf Hitler."

end CSB.

You're probably not an Angeleno. It's considered heresy to think any Angel is better than a Dodger. Just like you would have been driven out of town for preferring the Clippers to the Lakers a few years ago. The locals here don't care about who is currently winning but rather which franchise has won the most championships. The most heard refrain last year was about the Lakers 16 championships rather than the Clippers franchise record 57 wins.

So you're saying LA is full of vapid morons who know nothing about baseball? Because I was already aware of that

mikaloyd: Jeter


I'm pretty sure the Yankees would love to trade Jeter for Trout. I mean, having one of the worst SSs in the game is cool and all, but...

Yeah, I'd say McCutchen and Josh Donaldson, only because the Pirates and A's are poor. Literally anyone else and the team'd only be concerned about inking the deal before the Angels sobered up.
