Not often you see a walkoff popup... unless you're playing the Astros.

 

This is the second collision that Paredes got into this week, the first put their best player (Altuve) on the DL with a broken jaw.

That, for me, is a long term bench-able offense.  Or demotion.  Something.

Sometimes I can see Brett feverishly looking through Cat gifs and meme looking for just the right one

This gif has me wondering how many times a player has dropped on ball like this and picked it up to get a called out.

Miggy's plate coverage is just off the charts crazy good. All of these went for a HR. Here is the link to the article

I love these combo gifs they really show just how consistent a great players mechanics and timing are his head, legs, shoulder are identical on those swing it's just his arms that move to the ball. Impressive hitter

It, like, doesn't make sense. How does he get the barrel of the bat on the ball a foot outside and a foot inside, without moving/lunging with his body?

 

Amazing.

Amazing.

To be fair, the outside pitches nibbled on the k zone, but the inside pitch was 9" off the corner and he feasts on belt high inside pitches (well he feasts on everything that's kind of the point, but especially those).

True point. But even so, the difference between the inside and outside pitches is probably more than 2 feet, and he squares them both up on the barrel of the bat. Insane.

This is the batting stance of a .414 OBP.
