From a link on the new blog by Paul DePodesta (really), here's Carlos Zambrano helping out "career minor leaguer Ron Stilanovich" and his Hardball video series.
Lesson #19: Taking One For the Team
I thought this was brilliant. There's a whole series up on YouTube featuring various big leaguers. Carlos's may be the best.
Yeah, someone posted this link on here a few weeks ago. I thought all of them were hilarious. Especially "hobo ambush"!
Wow. That's amazing.
At first, I thought it was for real. Then I'm like, why's he coming out of a port-a-john?
Love the Z. Good stuff.
Wait, that's not real?
I saw this a few months ago. I can't remember where I saw the link, but after I watched it, I added it to my favorites list as fast as I could. Hilarious stuff.
Hilarious! Love the ending where he hopes the check clears. Now if we could only get someone in the Cubs front office to start a blog just like Paul...
Or better yet, get Paul in the Cubs front office.
Thanks Rip Van Winkle!
But - its still REALLY funny.
Then I guess Theriot got to the majors by watching this video countless times...
Heh. Nice vid.
I just showed this to a co-worker. He read the thread and his first question was, "What's 3/44?"
Maybe it's time for us to provide a glossary for newbies. We have a rich lexicon, including gems like "Cubbery", "...in my pants" and "Johann's Mom". :-)
This is part community and part fraternity. So, when you are a newbie, you hang around and learn by osmosis. it's part of the rite of passage.
Don't listen to Chad, I'll eventually add some of our memes to the FAQ page, just been a little slow on updating that.
that's crap. you were not in a fraternity.
I definitely was not in a fraternity...and we shall leave it at that.
This is where Real Neal would chime in about Rob having a monthly visitor.
wasn't the third guy up, the little righty...Reed Johnson?
New from Gordo this morning....
The Cubs appear poised to sign veteran center fielder Jim Edmonds soon after he clears waivers Wednesday.
...multiple Cubs sources said the team plans to pursue Edmonds, and one said Edmonds has told his agent to talk to no one before talking to the Cubs.
I don't have a problem taking a risk on a cheap lefty bat that may turn out to be dependable, but does it have to be Jim freaking Edmonds? I hate him so much. I really dislike him. It's going to be really, really hard for me to get behind this one, Jimbo.
In a word: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Resist the urge to make a worthless change. I would sooner take Lofton over this guy. I'll take Pie's fielding and impatient bat over a possible clubhouse cancer and finished ballplayer. That reeks of a Dusty/current Reds mindset. Nooooooooo. You got me?
This one's the best of that series:
