>Off the Beaten Path>1 more (real) at-bat for Adam Greenberg
7 years after his beaning the guy gets his 1 glorious at-bat and has to face this nasty stuff?
That just ain't fair. Here's a GIF of Dickey's 10-inch riser. Watch the catcher's glove... I think at least one law of physics was broken on that pitch.
In an infinite universe, the one thing sentient life cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion
#1: Do what I can do. <not doing well>
#2: 1/2 Ironman (New Orleans, LAI) <DONE>
Granted it probably would not have hurt... but R.A. Dickey is among the leaders in hit batsmen. So I thought uh-oh when I saw who he was going to face. Of course he doesn't throw hard, and maybe that's one of the only good ways to get on base against him.
But the Mets have a wide assortment of crap pitching he could have been sent up to face.
and when a pitch from Dickey doesn't go up...
Lord have mercy.
