Here’s an idea: don’t walk the bases loaded!

Recommended Posts

OK, this is really more of a rant than an insightful post.   But both Lopez and Kremer managed to load the bases on walks, and we got burned both times.    Armstrong poured gasoline on the Lopez fire with another walk and then a down-the-middle fastball for a grand slam.   Plutko actually did a respectable job relieving Kremer but two runs still resulted.   

Bottom line, make the other team earn their way on base, don’t just hand it to them!   That is all.

Genuis!  Why didn't anyone else think of this.

Frobby does have an advanced degree.

Perhaps we can pass legislation making it illegal.     Any pitcher who walks three straight batters is taken off the field in handcuffs.

I am vehemently opposed to the death penalty, with 2 exceptions ......

 

1) lll Rubberneckers on the highway.

2)  ll. Orioles pitchers who walk the bases loaded.

Yeah walking the bases loaded against the Yankees is some Dave Trembley era ass nonsense. Disappointing to see that in back to back games.

As someone who lived in Tennessee for 15 years, I can confirm that you'd have to take out 99% of the state population.  I could probably count the totality of turn signals I witnessed that entire time on my fingers.

Or people who change lanes and then put on their turn signal after the lane change is completed. 😡

This seems to happen a lot in Maryland based on my years of driving.
