Pictures of Zack Greinke Kissing a Cat on the Head and Having a Goddamned Cat Party

I mean, holy shit. There are not words to express the equal mix of shame and excitement I felt, and continue to feel, upon learning that these pictures exist. Zack Greinke saw a camera in front of him and then kissed his cat on the head. He and his wife and family and friends had a goddamned cat party. They celebrated the birthday of their beloved cat friend and dressed up in cat themed clothing. This happened. I don’t even know what to do with myself.

You are Dead to Me, Carlos Quentin

fuckthat

That’s it, Carlos Quentin. You are dead to me. Following your inevitable suspension, the next time you come to bat or take the field, I will see nothing. I will see air. You have become an apparition. Like the ships of Columbus set down on the shores of the New World, unseen by the bewildered eyes of the native peoples, your visage to me will be invisible, incomprehensible. For you are dead to me, or even more than dead, you are a void, a blank line. Erased. Never existed. Your father’s seed never swum, your mother’s womb never blossomed. You were never conceived nor nurtured nor birthed. You are dead to me, Carlos Quentin, or even more than dead. No one fucks with my Zack.

Call to the Pen: Carl Crawford Begins Throwing Program

Reports are swirling that Carl Crawford, recent addition to the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team, has begun to throw a baseball. Mark Saxon kicked off the media firestorm yesterday with this scintillating story. Attempting to return from reconstructive surgery on his left, throwing elbow, Crawford has recently begun to pick up, hold, and then throw a baseball. These are the facts. There remains a high probability that Crawford has started to throw a baseball various lengths, probably from shorter distances at first, followed by a slow progression to longer throws, and so on. These throws were more than likely accompanied by a catching and throwing partner, with Crawford expected to catch return tosses himself, one would assume with a baseball mitt.

Call to the Pen: The Ecstasy of Josh Beckett Being Thrown Out at First from Right Field

Please click this internet hyperlink to read the entire post over at Call to the Pen:

It’s been almost a full week since Josh Beckett was thrown out at first from right field by Carlos Beltran and I’m still not fully over the total awesomeness of the event. And you thought my first post back at Call to the Pen after an extended absence was going to be about something “newsworthy” or “relevant” or “topical.” Admittedly, I have something of a soft spot for batters being thrown out at first from right field. I love it. I have no idea why or how this has come to be but my love is real and it is large. I have watched the video of this play enough times that I don’t care to divulge the exact number, and I will watch it a handful more as I craft this post. I have no problem with this. The video’s charms do not diminish upon repeat viewings. Like fine wine, the video ages, details become more pronounced, complexities tease and excite the senses. Inebriation dulls the harsh edges of life, bathing time and space in a soft and comforting glow. Mirth abounds.

Follow the above link and you shall be rewarded with a lot of pictures and a small little drama involving Josh Beckett and Carlos Beltran. There is a hit, and some running, and a throw, and things kind of go from there. Read on, please, for the Heart of Man hangs in the balance.

A Picture of Some Baseball Players Enjoying Their Move More Than the Author

Here is a picture of some professional baseball players who are no doubt having a much more enjoyable and carefree experience moving than the author, who is currently in the midst of transporting all of his belongings across the city of Seattle from an apartment to a house while also painting many walls of said house and not getting very much sleep.

Also, Nick Punto lol.

Call to the Pen: Even More White Hot MLB Predictions

Opening Day. The Masters. Twitter. Work. There sure were a lot of things happening at once for this sporting fan during the day. I somehow survived it all, sanity as in tact as it will ever be. The Padres and Dodgers are playing baseball right now. Clayton Kershaw has the flu. Baseball is now officially back and is not going to leave for a long time. That’s cool with me. It’s a tradition unlike any other. Wait, that can’t be right.

What with baseball being back at all, I figured it would be appropriate to pile on a bit more MLB predictions over at Call to the Pen. These aren’t your standard boring predictions—records, division winners, award winners and the like, these are some white hot predictions. Dangerously hot. So hot that some of them are kind of legitimate and involve reality, while some are complete nonsense. I trade in baseball nonsense.

Call to the Pen: Kenley Jansen is the Dodgers Best Reliever

My most recent post over at Call to the Pen takes a meandering look at how Kenley Jansen is really good at pitching and is the Dodgers best reliever, and how the Dodgers may or may not be aware of that fact and utilizing him properly. The important thing is to note the strikeout rate. That strikeout rate, am I right? Chicks dig the K. Well, I think they dig the long ball, but if they knew what was good for them they’d dig the K as well. That was not a threat. This is Valentine’s Day and I did not just threaten all women into better appreciating the strikeout in the sport of baseball.
