I always thought it was silly that in hockey, football and basketball showboating is (mostly) accepted but in baseball you are a horrible person who deserves to be hit by a 95 mph thrown hard object because you enjoyed the difficult accomplishment of hitting a baseball really far.

I buy that. Do they both have stupid hair or just Jaso?

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

People freak out about the tag but the catch was even more impressive.

Seriously, think about the joy this kid brings us. The homer off Lackey. Was the NLDS MVP(if there was voting). Co-MVP of the NLCS. Homer in game 7 of the WS.


Javy forever.

Plus he makes random August games against the Padres exciting even though we have a 35-game divisional lead.

He was not, there was a reverse angle the broadcast eventually showed that was more clear.

The whole Javy Experience tonight. He just made a nice play to field a ball, chase down the base runner, tag him out and throw onto first for the double play.

Even got a hit off a RHP, maybe even 2! I didn't see one of them.

Soembody asked him if this Puerto Rico team was the best team he'd ever played on. He basically sort of kind of said that it was. The studio guys were were all "Oh no he didn't" as if that was going to cause some sort of controversy.

if he ever figures it out at the plate (namely vs rhp) then easily...until he puts up big offensive numbers, i just have a hard time saying that without at least the caveat that it's just defense/baserunning.

a few years ago i felt like puig was that guy. just exciting at everything.

Mike Trout might be the most boring amazing baseball player ever.

He is now because everyone is so used to him being that awesome, but his first couple years when he was robbing a HR like every other week plus everything else?

Pujols (in his prime) was the most boring amazing player ever to me.

Pujols was, indeed, mega-boring. Bryant looks like he's going to be pretty boring, too.
