1. This man is paid to swing a bat
That’s the Brewers’ Japanese import, Norichika Aoki, taking a healthy cut — if you can call spinning like a goof in a batter’s box a “cut” — against Matt Cain. And it’s not like Aoki is some slob that can’t hit. Nope, he came into tonight’s game hitting .284/.351/.403 this season for the Brewers. So I think we all know that the real thing that happened was Matt Cain. That’s one ugly swing.
2. This man is also paid to swing a bat
Tentatively titled: Rickie Weeks can’t catch a break. Weeks is really struggling right now — he was leading the National League in strikeouts coming into tonight’s game — and having to face Sergio Romo when you’re struggling that badly seems like it should violate several federal, state, and local laws.
3. Don’t run on Melky
ADVANCED SCOUTING REPORT. STOP. DON’T RUN ON CABRERA. STOP. I DON’T KNOW WHY THIS IS A TELEGRAM. STOP.
