Get it? Oops! ... He Did It Again? I'm sure that reference is sailing over your heads. Sorry, guys. I just like to stay on the cutting edge of pop culture. I'm a pop culture maven. I love music and being topical and showing off my knowledge of up-to-the-minute musical references.
Anyway, remember when Tim McCarver said this on Saturday, September 29 (My friends and I keep a record of stupid things Tim McCarver says and post it on an Internet blog with date and time stamps. Don't worry about it. We're pretty awesome.)?We had our friends at Stats, Inc. check and see whether more multi-run innings came with a lead off homer or a lead off walk. You would think that a lead off walk would lead to more big innings than a lead off home run. Not true. A lead off home run, this year, has lead to more multi-run innings than lead off walks. It's against conventional thinking.
Well, he said it again, almost verbatim, last night during the Indians' merciless bludgeoning of the very nearly moribund Boston Red Sox. I cannot believe that Timmy cannot believe this very obvious fact, and that he is so disbelieving that he has wasted our time in two different nationally broadcasted baseball games with his imbecilic disbelief.
For the last time: a leadoff home run guarantees at least one run, leaving you only needing one more run to create two total runs and thus a multi-run inning. A leadoff walk means a guy is on first.
