  3. maybenotboring said: Absurd (joke) theory: Billy Beane is double-bluffing us all. Why would the genius spoil his secrets and his view of the future? He's trying to wrong-foot the kind of baseball thinkers who take his words as gospel, then sweep in and fleece em.

    This would be amazing.

    It’s amazing what a peaceful Wednesday evening can bring in baseball land.

    I fired up what I thought would be some meaningless West Coast baseball. What I found was a bit more…animated.

    Dodgers-Rockies. Charlie Steiner, the LA radio man, went on about Uncle Charlie, Clayton Kershaw’s legendary curveball. “When I say Uncle Charlie, I mean a curveball that can freeze you right up…” etc. Baseball 101.

    Twitter informed me that he was doing his superstitious best to avoid any mention of the feat unfolding before him. Steiner and his broadcasting partner instead praised the characteristics of public enemy number one, the curveball that launched a thousand strikeouts. 

    They dodged the words “no” and “hitter” like they might summon a baseball demon; the fear of the baseball gods were in them.

    Dodgers.com was kind enough to make their streaming video available to those of us too cheap to pay for the privilege. I felt bad switching from radio to TV and abandoning Charlie & Friends at the pivotal moment.

    Vin Scully quickly alleviated my guilt.

    “If you don’t mind, I’m just gonna sit back and watch with the rest of you,” said Vin. A legend in the booth watching a hero on the field. Twitter buzzed with Vinsanity as much as Kershawesomeness.

    The ace struck out the last batter, he raised both arms. He really takes up some space, especially when unfolded. Michaelangelo would need half a mountain’s worth of marble.
