“Hey TJ, what’re your two favorite things about baseball?” “Probably bench clearing brawls and bat flips.” Well, unfortunately, this post contains neither of those things, but it does contain some heaters. If I had to name my third favorite thing, it’s probably watching batters strike out. There’s nothing quite like watching a guy swing and his face falling when he realizes that it’s game over, he’s going back to the dugout. Which is why I couldn’t tear my eyes away from Aroldis Chapman’s pitching last night, where he threw 10 fastball, all of which clocked in over 100 mph.
Only way to celebrate throwing that much fuego in one inning? Bumgarner.
