Didn't they say he weighs at least 300 lbs?


He’s looking at Altuve thinking that he’s the other-other white meat.

It's probably useful on cold nights to carry a bit of extra fat.

Yeah, but that’s like me carrying Dante Bichette.

That's always my reasoning.

Is this Smoltz on the broadcast?  Is he going to spend all the games pointing out how well Correa’d hit if he played half his games in Yanqui Stadium?  Sounds like he’s working for Correa’s agent.

I see Sanchez hasn’t been working on blocking pitches on his day off.

Yeah, that was Smoltz talking about Correa should be the second coming of Jeter.

Nice at bat.  Cmon Marwin.

Based on his strike call vocalisation, we have Umpire Rawhide at home plate tonight.

You're in Perth, right?  Everything needs to be measured south of the line.

Swing the fucking bat!!!
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Top 2nd

Correa falls behind 2-2, then Ks on a FB.

Yuli flies out to fairly deep left center

Gattis takes 2 balls,  breaks his bat fouling one into the stands,  fouls another straight back,  lays off a 58 footer
Fouls another,  and finally takes ball 4 high.

Marwin steps in, takes off speed low/ away for strike 1, then a nice breaking ball for strike 2,  same pitch for strike 3.

To bottom 2nd
Still scoreless

Sabathia’s belly fat swirls counter clockwise down there.

Come on Marwin. Awful AB.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

Terrible at bat by Marwin.  Him and Springer need to pull their heads out of their ass at the plate, soon.
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.

They seem to have bought into the hype about Sabathia’s witchiness.
