In the Name of Civil Disobedience, Drop Your Pants

The first week of enforcement of the sticky stuff rule resulted in dropping of pants and threats to do so. Pottymouth glows from Dustin Pedroia night at Fenway. Patti contemplates the effect of qHAR on media coverage of multi-homer games.

The first week of enforcement of the sticky stuff rule resulted in dropping of pants and threats to do so, the ejection of Joe Girardi for calling out Max Scherzer after demanding a substance check mid-inning, and Hector Santiago winning the dubious honor of  first pitcher suspended under the new world order. Pottymouth is still grooving on her visit to Fenway. It’s a toss-up if the best part was the salute to Dustin Pedroia or the Red Sox sweeping the Yankees (again). Patti notes that qHAR (quality Hair Above Replacement) directly factors into how excited we are about multi home run games.  Witness  the well-deserved media-frenzy regarding Fernando Tatis, Jr., and the barely a peep about Schwarber, Winker, and  Mountcastle doing the exact same thing. Gotta be the hair. In other qHAR  notes, we approve of Jazz Chisolm going purple, and wonder who will move into the rankings now that Freddy Galvis is regrettably out for a month or more.

Although the All Star caps meet with NCiB approval, we join the almost unanimous panning of Nike’s in-game jersey design. Yogi Berra gets a Forever stamp, the DR qualifies for the Olympics, and NC State loses their shot at the College World Series because of COVID.
