Now …. Where is that Batter’s Box Again?

I was so excited about Buster Posey’s twins this morning, almost missed this great little ditty of a video, compliments of  Frisco Fastball,   one of my favorite blogs.  It reminded me of that Abbott & Costello “Who’s on First” comedy routine, except this is for real ~ I think.

“Even though Casilla could not have reached a pitch over the plate, he said with a straight face, “I was looking for a fastball away,” drawing howls of protest and laughter from teammates nearby. ” Hank Shulman,  SF Chronicle.  

And yes, please welcome into the world two more Posey’s,  Addison Lynn & Lee Dempsey Posey, born yesterday, August 14, 2011.  Congratulations to Buster and Kristin!  It was rumored Brian Sabean was up really early trying to come up with an MLB contract for infants.  But it’s just a rumor, probably nothing to it.

  1. He’s doing the opposite of about 90% of the league. This is hilarious!

    Most players crowd the plate badly and get upset by anything a few inches in and off the plate.

  2. Good take. And pitchers love that inside pitch, but this one couldn’t possibly have a clue where “inside” was so I also found the ensuing four pitch walk hilarious!
