Meet a Baseball Fan (Welcome to Anyone)

He never dogged it.  He was always trying.

Who doesn’t love a Game 7? After 118 years, it’s about time the Phillies had one.


Where did the time go?

Aaron Judge’s May: .406, 1.506 OPS, 306 wRC+

(As The Philadelphia Inquirer reported it: “This is when the boos to rain down. He took it all in, sticking his hand up in celebration as he rounded second and third. The boos turned into cheers — and golf claps — by the time his home run trot was over.”)


Congratulations to former Columbia High shortstop Eliot Dix and the University of North Carolina Tar Heels on reaching the College World Series.


With Taijuan Walker starting today’s London Series game, Tim Kurkjian resurrected from three years ago his “all-country team.” (Get it? Taiwan Walker.)

C: Bill Poland
1B: Tim Ireland
2B: Ty France
3B: Germany Schaefer
SS: Jonathan India
OF: Chad Pinder
OF: Turkey Stearns
OF: Brian Jordan
P: Mark Portugal

Pesonally, I’m starting Chili Davis over Chad Pinder. And giving Pat Borders a categorical exemption to replace whoever Bill Poland is or was.


Get Mike Camero(o)n in there.

I like the idea of taking some liberties. El Salvador Pérez. Carlos Zambiano. Ron Ceylon.


It was great watching the crowd (on ESPN) start chanting "We want Soto" as Grisham stepped up to the plate last night, batting .082.  Then he stunned everyone with a 3-run homer, as the Yankees came from behind and broke the game open.

Was at the game...Next time up, the place was rockin' with "We want Grisham". A good time was had by all.

Other than Turkey Stearnes, no big ones. (Though Brian Jordan and Mark Portugal had memorable careers.)

ETA: And Stearnes is kind of a liberty-taking selection himself, since he was born Norman Thomas Stearnes.
