Yup, the press learned its lesson about giving free publicity to an unqualified loudmouth with political aspirations.
“A useful yardstick for how much the media has failed to learn this vital lesson of 2016 is how much coverage Michael Avenatti is getting on cable news. Here is a man who rose to fame as a porn star’s lawyer.”
It was the first triple play in which the batter was not retired since June 3, 1912.
(Non-working film clips).
That’s their franchise record.
It was one of the few highlights in what has been a dismal year for the team, which is in fourth place in a five-team division, and always seems to have half the squad on the DL. Their offense has been so weak that their staff ace, Jacob de Grom, has been able to amass no better than a 7-7 record, despite leading the major leagues in ERA.
Their most consistent player has been an unheralded reserve outfielder named Brandon Nimmo. Who?? Well, whoever he is, I must congratulate their scouting staff on Finding Nimmo. (I apologize for that line. Irresistible impulse.)
The offensive explosion also provided one of the few seasonal highlights for Jose Bautista, who knocked in seven runs. He was once one of the most feared hitters in the game. In 2010 Bautista knocked 54 over the fence in the AL. The following year he hit 43 homers, adding a spectacular .447 on-base percentage. He finished in the top five in the MVP balloting in each of those seasons. But those days now seem so long ago. Ol’ Joey Bats is definitely in the twilight of his career, perhaps past the twilight and all the way into darkness. He has battled to stay over the Mendoza line the past two seasons.
I’m guessing they mean they are hoping Trump will forget about it. According to the most recent estimates, the parade will cost more than ninety million simoleons.
With slo-mo of Sable’s bare chest.
NOT The Onion. This one is real.
