In honor of the Captain signing for one final year, have this picture of him as literally a baby, only hours out of his mother’s womb.
(I absolutely can’t remember where I first found this, but I know it was years ago on tumblr. So if it was you, thank you!)

"You get on base, we win. You don’t, we lose. And I *hate* losing, Chavy. I *hate* it. I hate losing more than I even wanna win.”
MLB.tv froze like this and I like a lot of things about it. Notice Jeter posing for Mt. Rushmore on the far left.
Wicked little weapon that winds up in the dirt.
- Vin Scully, after a broken-bat groundout.
Uribe, you’ll have to try harder than that to really impress Puig.
Ok, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I love baseball fights. Dumb ones, like this, that is, not ones like Marichal attacking Roseboro with a bat. Here are some things I love about baseball fights:
A) Posturing. So much posturing.
B) The bullpen guys all slowly jogging in from the outfield and by the time they all get there they just have to turn around and go back.
C) There’s always a player who wasn’t actually involved with whatever the incident was that sparked the fight, but who really takes it to heart and has to be restrained and wants to be super in-the-middle-of it for some reason.
D) The guys that watch on the outskirts (so, mostly everyone). They just sort of mill around and maybe bump chests with an opposing player if they’re feeling aggressive. A lot of players take the opportunity to catch up with the other team, though, and then you get stuff like this. You know, just hangin’ out. Taking a break from work. In the video, Pierre is clearly trying to catch Janish’s eye to start a conversation (the content of which we shall never know). Hey, better talking than hitting with a bat, right?
Makes me (fleetingly, I’m sure) wish I knew how to make gifs.
