    He deserves it. Meanwhile, MLB will fellate any Yankee this year, so prepare to see Judge get it twelve times this year, even when he goes 0-for-whatever ...

    It's funny about Aaron Judge ... Here he is with his parents ...

    [​IMG]

    He is a really great person; one of my former students played ball with him at FSU. Our very own FSU on this board probably watched him in action. I hope he has a fantastic career. I have nothing against him, except that if he played for the Royals, ESPN wouldn't give a rat's nutsack for his numbers until he broke a real record or something.

    Anyway, because he's adopted, I predict that the BLM agitants are already bum-rushing him about his "self identification" being as he's biracial and adopted. They'll run the same game on him that they ran on Kaepernick. And we all know how that worked for him ... he'll be working for ESPN any day now ...

    If Jackie Robinson were alive to see what the supposedly 'forward thinking SJWs' are up to in his name, he'd puke himself to death.

    I was going to post that his dad is almost as tall as he is, and that he looks a lot like him, and it's a good thing he didn't take after his mom height-wise, and then you tell me he's adopted.
    Oh well.

    SO FAR the Bucs have been pretty mediocre at least offensively where they rank 23rd in team batting average. Their OBP is .319 and they rank 29th in HR's ahead of the Gnats. We need to take advantage of this team while they are down. Their pitching ERA is ranked 8th and we are ranked 1st so again there is no reason not take 2 out of 3 at minimum! Frankly not getting a sweep will be IMHO a failure but my paranoia only will allow me to predict 2 of 3.

    Funny.........first thing I noticed was Dad's Fresno St sweatshirt.

    Judge definitely had the "good guy" rep at Fresno. A man child on the college level, too.

    MehCarthy has a sore non throwing from working in the weight room?

    Novel concept for him.

    That's why I never lifted anything that weighed more than 16 oz when I played. Of course that's also one of the reasons no one ever paid me to play.

    Well, I noticed that, too...but had no wish to persecute him for that as you did.
    I also noticed the red hair gene that Mike obviously has, but that opens up endless paths to go down.

    Typical dweeb McCarthy "tweaked something" picking up a weight

    I honestly think it's a bit fake or not that serious.

    They were able to put Kershaw on Saturday and put McCarthy on Sunday, knowing that Sunday probably wouldn't be played.

    And now, they can put McCarthy on the DL retroactive to when he last pitched, call up a reliever for the next 3 days, and have McCarthy pitch on Thursday if my math is correct. Gets him skipped once in the rotation to not burn him out and doesn't really create a problem

    Maybe I'm over analyzing it but it's not that improbable

    It's no secret that our FO is very liberal with their use of the DL, so I don't think it's a stretch at all to come to the conclusion that McCarthy is just fine.

    Oh, what a tangled web we weave...
    Guess I'm a traditionalist, or maybe one might say, unslick mthrfcker, but take a pitcher who is "fine" and have him miss a turn, purposely, basically for shits and giggles is OK why again?
    E= mc hammer.
    If the guy truly is fine, what does this get us again ?
    He still is getting paid right?
