Even Joe Buck Can't Take Tim McCarver Anymore

2013 Postseason

And just like that, on the power of Adrian Gonzalez’s two homers Wednesday night, Cabbage Farmers owner Paul Martin has re-taken 1st place in the Overall Standings. Props to Paul for the deft end-of-season trades, where he picked up Gonzalez using a free trade. The question, though, is whether or not he’ll be able to hold onto the top spot through the rest of the Division Series and an entire World Series.

Tip of the Ballcap to league leader, uber-Pearl Jam fan, and Dongwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer, who passed along this link and GIF while making this observation: “Even Joe Buck can't take Tim McCarver anymore...and that's saying something!”

Exit Sandman

Horse Race Update: Dongwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer has once again bounced into 1st place after yesterday’s action and holds a 2-point lead in the Overall Standings over Cabbage Farmers owner Paul Martin. There are two days left in the regular season, not counting any playoff games to determine the AL Wild Card participants.

Tip of the Ballcap to Carrboro T-Birds owner
Brian Thornburg, who via Facebook linked to Yankee closer Mariano Rivera’s send-off at Yankee Stadium and commented, “Just this once, there can be crying in baseball … congrats to Mariano Rivera. Exit Sandman.”



Even for those of us who consider ourselves confirmed despisers of the Yankees, we have to agree that
that was one hell of a sendoff. I particularly love how the announcers just shut their traps and just let the event play out.

With this Tip of the Ballcap, Brian ties
Joe Kelley in 2nd place with five Tips. Jay Livernois is in 1st with seven Tips. Kevin Klinkhamer is in 3rd place with four. Vince Livernois is in 4th place all alone with three Tips. Marcus Rochellle and league follower Missy (@missyisms) each have two Tips.

Grampaul Martin's Cabbage Farmers Ahead By Just Eight Points

What the what?! Here I am, minding my own business, watching the Regular Season pass with no neverminds, just figuring that Cabbage Farmers owner Paul Martin would win it all. Dude’s been in first place nearly uncontested nearly the entire season, so who’s to think he’s gonnna lose the lead in the final two weeks of the season?

Then, boom!

I glance at the standings this morning and Dongwhipped owner
Kevin Klinkhamer is just eight points out of first place in the Overall Standings. This changes things, doesn’t it? Attention must be paid. Kevin just might overtake Paul.

Ah, man, Kevin, do you really want to do that? Paul just became a grandfather. Grampaul Martin has toys and clothes and diapers and accessories to buy the young one. You want to take all that away from an infant? Really?!

Grampaul Martin
Former SLPL owner Brian with Grampaul Martin holding the Little One


To be fair to Kevin, though, any monies won by Grampaul will just as likely go toward getting another keg of Guinness for his indoor tap so that he can celebrate the birth of his new grandkid, so go ahead, make it competitive!

Tensions Mounting, Redux: Vicarious and Vicious Nut-Crushing

Tip of the Ballcap to Dongwhippped owner Kevin Klinkhamer, who with yet another nut-crushing story seems intent on making the men of this league feel vicarious and vicious nut crushing pain. Here’s what he says: “The link (Carrboro T-Birds owner) Brian (Thornburg) sent in was great. But even better was the home run hit a couple of innings earlier that caused the eventual brouhaha. Gattis stared a bit too long at this HR and that is why Fernandez pimped it up after hitting his HR. However, the best part of the HR is where it landed. This clown literally watches the ball fly right into his crotch.”

Nut Crushing

No fun! No fun! No fun!

Kevin continued. “I could go on and on about this guy but won't waste my time as he is a Marlins fan and that will suffice for now. And much props to the commenter who chimed in with ‘The home run was measured at 395 feet, 3.5 inches.’”

Okay, that alone was worth the vicious and vicarious pain. Thanks, Kevin!

With this Tip of the Ballcap, Kevin moves into a 3rd place tie with Brian Thornburg and
Vince Livernois with three Tips apiece. Jay Livernois leads with six. Joe Kelley has five Tips. Marcus Rochellle and league follower Missy (@missyisms) each have two Tips.

Guys, I Hate To Do This To You, Redux: Don't Go In The Water. Ever.

Tip of the ballcap -- but just barely, since he sent this just minutes after we emerged from a 16-hour tanning-bed session while we tried desperately to mentally and physically remove ourselves from any thought of water and all things H2O after stumbling on this fiasco of a creature in the animal kingdom -- to Dongwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer, who passed along this little horrific follow-up to Thursday’s entry.

Alligator
(Click to biggerize.)

If that picture doesn’t scare the bejeebers out of you, click this link for video.

Okay, folks, let’s call this game-set-match, okay? There absolutely no need to find increasingly scarier creatures to give us a mind foxtrot, you know? We saw pictures of the testicle-eating fish. That was enough. Really. Please, don’t go sharing any more dreadful beasts with us. Our current loop of nightly night terrors doesn’t need fresh blood, so to speak. So let’s just stop this right now. As much as we love giving you people tips of the ballcap, we don’t want to encourage anyone else to inject any more visions of a hellish demise into our heads. Stop it. Just stop it.

With this Tip of the Ballcap, Kevin moves into a fourth place tie with
Brian Thornburg, Marcus Rochellle, and league follower Missy (@missyisms), all with two apiece. Jay Livernois still leads with six Tips. Joe Kelley is in second place with five. Vince Livernois is in third place with three Tips.

Skeeter Rules To Overturn On-Field Call: Unassisted Tip of the Ballcap Goes to Marcus

Official League Scorer Jeren “Skeeter” Livernois, also owner of Punching Judy’s, has ruled rather definitively -- and surprisingly -- in yesterday’s controversy on who should get the Tip of the Ballcap for the excellent Jimmy Fallon video of “Blurred Lines” with Robin Thicke and The Roots. Here’s his official ruling, which reverses our on-field ruling:

Jeren Rules


So Skeeter opted to rule in favor of his first cousin rather than in favor of his father. What is especially surprising is that both Jay and Marcus were willing to share the Tip of the Ballcap, as shown in the complete Facebook discussion:

Jeren Rules Detail


That should make the upcoming Labor Day holiday a barrel of laughs around Jay’s house. Hopefully
Skeeter can opt to instead score an A’s game for his day job with STATS, LLC that day.

But that’s okay. We appreciate that Skeeter made an impartial ruling despite it likely coming with a personal cost. And Marcus, next time you see Jeren you might want to buy him a round of drinks.

This is
Marcus’ second Tip of the Ballcap for the season, which ties him for second place with owners Vince Livernois, Joe Kelley, Brian Thornburg, and league follower Missy (@missyisms), each of whom have two Tips of the Ballcap. Jay Livernois still leads the league with five Tips of the Ballcap.

WTF Awesomeess: "Blurred Lines"

Tip of the ballcap (once again) to The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter Pence owner Joe Livernois MFs In D.C. owner Marcus Rochellle, who declared this version of “Blurred Lines” as “WTF awesomeness” shared this on Facebook back on August 2, though we missed it:



Though not a traditional Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, we cannot disagree Jay’s assessment. I actually prefer this version to the original, which you can see here:



Update: If you’re scoring at home: We don’t know how to score this Tip of the Ballcap. We gave the tip to Jay because he e-mailed it to us on August 7, which prompted us to post the video here, but since receiving Jay’s e-mail we discovered that MFs In D.C. owner Marcus Rochellle had posted this video on his Facebook wall way back on August 2. Does Jay get the full tip of the ballcap with Marcus getting to assist? Or, does Marcus get the full tip of the ballcap since he posted it to Facebook first with Jay getting the assist? To be fair, we have raided Facebook postings in the past (see here, here, here, here, and here); had we seen Marcus’ posting earlier, we likely would have posted it and given him full credit, but Jay took the extra effort and e-mailed it to us … and we always appreciate when people take the extra time to think of us.

Okay, I’m sending this one over to our official league scorer,
Jeren Livernois, owner of Punching Judy’s. Skeeter, how do you rule? Who gets the full Tip of the Ballcap?

Updated August 9: See here for Jeren’s ruling.

Die, Bud Selig!

Tip of the ballcap to Dongwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer, who sends us this commentary via e-mail with the subject line “Die, Bud Selig!” and this note: “This picture is just another reason Bud Selig should use his powers to enact the ‘best interests of baseball’ clause by banning HIMSELF from the game for life. Or just die, whichever he prefers.”

Fred Lost A Couple Fly Balls In The Sun

The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter Pence owner Joe Livernois just sent me the following video and asked whether my dog Fred could do this:



No. No, he can’t. Well, I’m sure he could, but, well, Fred is a he, which means he tends to protect his underside. Even though he lost his, er, well, let’s just say he lost a couple fly balls in the sun about six years ago, Fred is like any male of any species who has experienced the excruciating pain associated with having damage done to the, um, er, fly balls. And sliding the underside down stairs, which are replete with edges on which fly balls can and invariably do uncomfortably land, is just inviting needless excruciating pain. Even if Fred’s memory of having fly balls is six years past, he still has the time-tested evolutionarily-built propensity to protect himself down there at all costs, which means he instead opts to just walk or bound or bounce or flounce down the steps like all male dogs should. So my hypothesis is that even if he wanted to be a little more efficient about getting down the stairs, he would
not go for the option that would invite unnecessary, agonizing, heart-thumping, raw, brutal pain.

Or, it may be that I just never trained him to slide belly-first down stairs.

Update: It appears that while I was going meta, JJ Cale was literally going down, as in six feet under. Ah, hell.

Nominee For Best DL Excuse Of The Season; Also, We May Be Going Dark

This story comes to us by way of The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter Pence owner Joe Livernois, who nominates this for a Monday Morning WTF?!, ‘cause some things can’t wait until Sunday. Jay nominates this for “Nominee for best DL excuse of the season …”

We looked a little deeper and discovered this interview with the injured shortstop, who appears to have been just following orders not to move as the skydivers were plowing feet-first into their faces:



So, there’s our next nominee for best DL excuse of the season. Thanks, Jay!

Meanwhile, in other news, we may or may not be going dark until Friday morning depending on whether the 8 baud modem on my Amiga 1000 can connect to the Internet from the unfortunately named Servicio de Hosteleria Industrial de Terrassa hotel in Flushing, NY, near LaGuardia and whether Norton Utilities can remove the 47 Trojan horses it’s been trying to remove since February.

Revisiting "One, Two, Three Strikes Yer Out!"

The last we visited Bugs Bunny, it was to show the video that The Heart is a Lonely Hunter Pence owner Joe Livernois shared with us of the guy who could swing his bat like a helicopter blade. Or, as Chente owner Vince Livernois said, who could “strikeout with one pitch.” We then linked to this video of three Gas-House Gorillas batsmen striking out on one pitch:



Now watch that video again, this time paying close attention to Bugs’ wind-up and, in particular, the sound effects used as he winds up. Got it? Good.

Now, play those sound effects in your head as you
watch rhythmic gymnast Shin Soo-Ji throw out a first pitch.

Happy Independence Day! Now Read Neil Steinberg

Happy Independence Day! … and a tip of the ballcap to Babes Love Baseball once again for this cool image:

While you’re getting all a’ready for picnics, beer, and fireworks, why not read this blog post about why we celebrate Independence Day by league-favorite columnist Neil Steinberg? Neil’s recently had his several-times-weekly column at the Chicago Sun-Times reduced to just one per week for some perceived violation, so he’s taken to continuing his prolificness at a personal blog, where he’s writing every g-damn day. Note that he’s not just doing some dopey daily entry with a few words, a picture, and some links like the very one you’re reading right now, but he’s writing stuff even longer than a typical column. So, give today’s entry a read, then bookmark his home page for daily good reading.

Note: Neil’s blog is godawful ugly. I’m sure he’ll select a more aesthetically pleasing blog template at some point, but don’t let the lack of aesthetics drive you away from his words. Those are, as ever, excellent.

A Little Hyperbolic, But He *Did* Take A Header Into the Dugout

Tip of the ballcap to Golden Sombreros owner Brandon Olivarria who (by way of text) shared this sweet link and video:



Niiiiiiiiiize. Though I think the announcer got a little hyperbolic when he described it as a “full out sprint” when the guy clearly slowed down before making his final jump into the dugout. But I suppose I can allow a little hyperbole for a guy who takes a header into the dugout.

America Rejoices

While we suppose the sentiment isn’t shared by all Americans--there might be Kings fans in the world, who knows? and I’ve heard rumors that the Heat have a couple of fans amongst the populous--this American is definitely rejoicing.

Now, San Antonio, don’t fold like the Bulls and Pacers before you. Get this foxtrotter done, okay?

Baseball Question: Adjusting Batting Gloves Is Totally Oedipal

Tip of the ballcap to Chente owner Vince Livernois (via Facebook), who posed this question: “Does anyone know why a batting glove needs to be adjusted after every pitch? Even if a batter doesn't swing they are adjusting their glove. I'll be annoyed until I know. If it's a nervous quirk I'll be even more annoyed.” Tip of the ballcap to The Heart is a Lonely Hunter Pence owner Joe Livernois for the best response … and for a worthy follow-up question.

Yu Darvish's Delivery 

The first time I saw this, I thought I was hallucinating:

Trouble is, I was. Some joker at Dominos added magic mushrooms to my pizza. Second time I saw this, I was still tripping. The three-thousandth time I saw this -- and yes, I counted … did you know that every number between 1 and 3,000 has a different color and smell? -- I was finally engaging with reality; and in reality this is just as cool as it is when my mind is trying to locate Alice to ask her a few questions.
