Call to the Pen: Randy Wolf’s 49 MPH Curveball is Something to Look At

I’m starting to feel self-conscious about how the blog has been looking lately, because lately it’s just been a whole shitload of excerpts and links to other websites. And while those other websites are wonderful and I love them, this kind of practice and schedule is doing a number on my fuckin’ aesthetics. And to hell with these stupid words, I want things to look good around here, goddamnit. So yeah. That’s why I’m trying to type all these words right now. Maybe I’m nuts, but I think these kinds of posts look a lot better than the other types of posts. I don’t mind the excerpts, they’re kind of cool looking and they have that whole turquoise thing going on, but once you get like eight in a row the overall charm of the page starts to wane. I don’t want this to seem like some lifeless link dumping area with all the original content elsewhere, even if that’s sort of what it’s turned into because what am I, some kind of baseball writing machine? I am not. I am human and coming up with ideas for blog posts is seriously just the worst thing ever. Unless the idea comes naturally, then it’s actually kind of fun and easy. What the hell was I talking about?

Oh yeah, right. I’m trying to make this post look like a normal, standard blog post. I think we’re just about there. I think we’re ready for the link. At Call to the Pen, I wrote about this seriously crazy and slow curveball Randy Wolf threw the other day. You can click on over and read all about it if you like. Summary: The pitch was very slow and it was cool. A fun fact about this post is that it was tweeted by both @MichiganGoat and @RandyWolfFans and I think that’s just wonderful. Those are two very neat and interesting Twitters to exist and read and link to a blog post that I wrote. So there’s that. The most special of thanks goes to Grant Brisbee of SB Nation for creating the gif I’ve been shamelessly stealing for all of this. Alright, this is looking pretty good. Things are looking up. I feel a lot better now.
