pitchers and catchers report tomorrow!
i'm baseball hungry that i'm watching the 1974 all star game (in Pittsburgh) for no particular reason. i've never seen luis tiant pitch. he would be my favorite player if he still played. he is always balking, but i guess he had an arrangement with the umpires. three of the top 10 second basemen of all time (by fWAR) were in the game (joe morgan, rod carew, and bobby grich). interesting to hear the announcers announce that it would most likely be hank aaron's last season, since he played two more in milwaukee before hanging it up.
i was also reminded of what a boss gaylord perry is. people don't really talk about him a lot these days but he had an incredible career

also, it's weird because you'd think i'd be a huge lou brock fan, but i've always been more swayed by the modern day view that lou brock was overrated and doesn't belong in the HOF. that's probably still right, but i must admit that it was thrilling to see him get on base and dance off the bag vs the tiant/munson battery. he stole 118 bases that year, his 35-year old season. (he stole second and then took third on an errant throw by munson)

it was like finally getting the answer to the age old hypothesis, "what if billy hamilton could hit at all?"
so in conclusion, i am excited for SPRING TRAINING 2020
(hold down shift while typing 2020 to create someone who is very excited for spring training)

reggie smith just swung his bat into the stands above the first base dugout, where a woman held her head in apparent pain as if she had been been struck in the head, only to reveal that no, she had not been struck at all. reggie smith sent the next pitch into the RF upper deck to punish her for lying #cardinalway

i'd apologize for spamming the thread with posts about the 1974 all star game, but there's no other thread and i already used my allotment of three apologies for the day (an actual rule i have to follow now).
mike marshall's 1974 season: 208 innings pitched, across 106 games. he didn't start a game, and he won 15 games with 21 saves. the announcer just mentioned that marshall had just set a record by pitching in 13 games in a row

what's crazy about this game is that as i understand from dock ellis' telling, every single person in the stadium is on acid

Nick Swisher ran into Brian Cashman in the tunnel and yelled "Hey! Look at my shirt!" at him, then pulled up his pullover to reveal a shirt that says CASHMAN RULES EVERYTHING AROUND ME.— Lindsey Adler (@lindseyadler) February 13, 2020

2016 scouting report: His hands are well above average, he's an excellent receiver and feel for calling a game will certainly be a plus in the future.
