Saw this on Twitter earlier and thought I'd share. On a recent trip to Key West, Mike Trout bagged a 500-pound grouper, presumably on his first-ever deep sea fishing expedition. Photo via Twitter @JessTara Michael 1:27 - "Come follow me and I will make you fishers of men."

Zack Greinke's Missing Ingredient: Good Catching??

40

Just read this article from Jeff Sullivan on Fangraphs about what is potentially missing in Zack Greinke’s starts with the Angels. In a nutshell: Greinke is not getting as many "extra" strikes, as he calls them, as a result from poorly framed pitches by Chris Iannetta. "There’s very compelling reason to believe that Greinke’s catching is worse now than it was in Milwaukee. It should make some sort of difference, and so it should be some sort of consideration." Would that also explain the collective pungent stench currently infesting the Halos pitching staff? I don’t believe so, but I don’t have any statistical evidence to the contrary, nor have I seen 4,000 games with my own two eyes to "validate" my personal hunch/opinion. What say you?

In case you didn't hear, from the official Angels MLB site. Congratulations to Mike and Torii. Stay hot...please.

This summer, coming to a ballpark near you: Follow one man's epic, clutch-defying journey into high pressure situations on the baseball diamond. Rather than adhere to society's traditional roles of bullpen relievers by dousing the flames of late-inning opposition rallies with cool water, Fernando Rodney tempts fate in dastardly fashion. Marked by his signature crooked cap, he employs a different liquid substance in his handiwork: premium octane fuel from his crimson gas can.

As a form of self-therapy to fight the anticipation, I wrote a fluff piece on the magnitude of tomorrow's game related to the past 20 or so years of Utah Football. Basically, why I love the Utes. Figured it's probably better used as a Fan Shot instead of a Fan Post, but feel free to check it out here. GO UTES!!!

Here is a nice bit about a drunken member of Red Sox Nation getting arrested at a Rays game in Tampa last week LINK to story. Photo credit to James Borchuck, St. Petersburg Times. It turns out, as evidenced by the next morning’s story, he was striking back on behalf of Red Sox Nation in response to all the "hatred" shown by Rays fans (I wonder why they would dislike a fine fellow like Mr. Sciecinski). He also goes on to say that his arrest photo looks "pretty cool." Despite your collective incredulity to being hated, o Red Sox Nation, on behalf of sports fans everywhere, you are indeed wicked awesome! Keep up the good work...
