Marwin was really late on that mediocre fastball.
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.

T2:

Marwin takes ball one high...ball two high...takes strike one...flies out F7

No score

Strike 1 was a 92mph meatball high and out over the plate.  Makes one wonder what the fuck he was looking for.

Springer tipped him off that the first shitty ones are the hardest to hit.

It was actually on 2-0.  You know, when the pitcher might be looking to get one in the zone...

Smoltz - This should be nowhere near the zone. (on 0-2 to Sanchez)
>pitch is way high<
Buck (sounding shocked) - You were right!

Buck was shocked that Smoltz knows anything about pitching.

You mean Lance McCullers has a father?
