So I wasn’t sure when I started this blog this season how much of the Absurd we’d get to see. Sure you’ll get 8 to 12 home runs a night. We’ll cover that for sure. But where will the craziness show up? Ballgirls making defensive stabs, maybe a bro catching a ball with his beer and then chugging it or a broadcaster trying out gigantic stadium food.
Well, we’re going to get to all of these things. How about we stick to something on the field of play. Something if you are scoring at home and we know you are all scoring the game on your iPad scorecard application. Well this triple play can be scored: 4-6-5-6-5-3-4.
Fairly routine right? 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 is a lotto number not a baseball play.
Its just another day in the theater of the absurd.
While most of the drama last night was focused on bean balls and collarbones, one of the bright stories of the new baseball season is Chris Davis of the Baltimore Orioles. He hit his AL leading 6th home run (tied with Michael Morse) last night against the Boston Red Sox in Fenway to get the O’s on the board in their 3-2 victory. This win was fueled by Adam Jones 2-RBI night and knotted them into a tie for first place in the AL East.
Davis’ homer can be seen here, since i’m having trouble with the embed code from Mlb.com. Or you can copy the link below
