Aye, very like a whale

Illuminating baseball commentary from the ALCS.

Explaining el Duque’s “dead arm”:

“It’s when your arm feels really heavy, lifeless.”



On a pitching change:

“What this pitching change does, it gets rid of the sinkerballer and
brings in someone like Timlin.”

[In fact it is Timlin himself, who proceeds to throw nothing but sinkerballs.]

Ex-Cub watch:

Nice to see Mueller again, and Bellhorn.  Bellhorn shows that he
can get to the ball, now if he could only throw it and hit it, he’d be
a triple threat.
