the Thicc King, 0 for 5 tonight, 4 Ks. It’ll be interesting watching him this year. Also, the Plumber, now in AAA, is back hitting, 2 for 4.

Lol.

You do know the A’s are like the worst offensive team in baseball, right?

Nah. Same as closing against the Astros. Exactly the same.

so….came back to the game and I see we’re ahead, 3-1. Looked at the box to see how Marsh is doing…oh…oh yeah. Then thought (without thinking too hard) “I hope Iglesias can hold this” and then…oh yeah.

We must have less than 10K’s

5Ks. The world is ending.

Also because Trout isn’t playing. That could easily have been 3-4Ks more.

What is beautiful with Vinny is that we all got to celebrate him while he was still living. Tributes will follow but ultimately, he knew he was loved by so many.

I feel like playing the A’s must be like when other teams play the Angels.

I met him a few years back. He was incredibly kind and gracious when I thanked him for his work over the years…

Apparently we ran into him in LA when I was kid. I don’t remember it though.

A Shakespeare quote he used so fits his own passing:

His life was gentle and the elements so mixed in him, that
nature might stand up and say to all the world, this was a man.

A few years ago (pre pandemic) went to the Hollywood bowl to see the Phil, and they did Copeland’s Lincoln Portrait. Vin did the spoken word parts. Three standing ovations for Vin. The orchestra and conductor joined in the ovation. Pretty much consummate LA experience.

I could replace “over-slide second base” with “strike out,” “take strike 3 called,” “swing at the first pitch” “place players on the ‘day to day’ only to have them out for the season.”

As a percentage no but since they hit so poorly they’re actually not there that often 🙂

That’s fine, but having a runner at second would be even nicer. 😃
