A week into their Grapefruit League schedule, the Washington Nationals are beginning to see results in one of their top spring projects: turning center fielder Endy Chavez into a legitimate leadoff hitter. . .
Although he has yet to draw a walk in 12 plate appearances . . .But it's okay because he's fast, right?
That's about all I've got, so it's time to go to the cheap laffs. The inscrutable, poorly-translated Japanese media isn't following Tomo "Landlord" Ohka around like they do Ichiro or any number of Matsuis, but he still gets some coverage. The best part about this is when that coverage, run through some half-assed translation program, turns into highly evocative poetry.
Pitcher Tomokazu (28) of landlord Nashonalz who aimed at the revival from the right hand neck fracture pitched well, and the exhibition game first starting call and three times were thrown out and pitched well ..one safe hit no lost point 3.. ..the deprivation.. ..San.. ..the shake...Whoever writes the best pretentious English grad student-style review of "San . . . the shake" wins . . . hell, I don't know, mad props. Unless I feel like sending you an autographed copy of Saving the Pitcher. Speaking of which:
What could make Will Carroll's blog better? It's already got fantastical, H.G. Wells-like rumors and purple prose wholly inadequate for what it's trying to describe. Remarkably, Will has found the one thing that could improve the living work of art that is Will Carroll Presents: more coverage of southeastern Indiana! WCP is moving and to the Tri-County Post-Messenger, American's most hyphenated newspaper. What does this mean? "What you see here won’t change much, outside of some local content about the area, which will give us an interesting balance." Good; local content about the area is my favorite kind of content of about the area. I hope Will keeps talking about fantasy rotisserie baseball and his favorite music songs as well.
