Good morning, baseball fans! We’re inching ever closer to the start of NFL and NCAA football season, so if you’re a fan of a bad team (like me), you have something else to look forward to, besides the debut of your team’s future prospects. If you’re still in the running in fantasy baseball or if your team is gunning for a playoff spot, keep at it! You can do it! (P.S: the Pitcher List leagues should be keeping an eye out for me). However you choose to consume baseball, do it in the way you want to do. And, above all else, have fun!
You’re Not Sending ME to the Cooler!
This poor Atlanta fan was this close to beating The Freeze!

You almost had it! You’ve gotta be quicker than that!
This fan may never be able to show his face in Truist Park again after that unlucky moment. The Freeze has lost before, so some of the sheen of Beating the Freeze has worn off, but he so rarely loses against Atlanta fans (and rarely takes it down to the wire in a race) that it’s still so unfortunate to see this fan fall just steps from a victory.
Bunt Lovers: Look Away
You have been warned!

Listen, I’m not sure what the deal was with this bunt, but I really don’t think it went the way that the Rangers actually wanted. So, I guess we can chalk this one up to a brain fart from Nick Solak (who was on third) and Co.
Congratulations, Edward Cabrera!
While this happened Sunday evening, it was a little too late for the Best MLB Moments from Sunday, so I thought it was worth showing Edward Cabrera’s call to the big leagues. Seeing these players overcome with happiness and hearing that their dreams are coming true is so enjoyable to watch. Cabrera’s joy is so palpable that it passes through the computer screen.

Good luck to him!
Those Are Fighting Words
Liam Hendriks apparently said something upsetting to Tim Anderson, because Anderson started using Hendriks as a speedbag!
