Video: Posey's grand slam
Buster Posey hit a grand slam last night, so all is right with the world. Watch the way the ball never even really gets up in the air, instead hurrying out on a line. Listen to the Padres announcer forget that grand slams are exciting for several seconds because his soul was just a little bit crushed. Feel the excitement in your chest: In a couple weeks, we'll be able to watch this every day.

The Heroic Role of the Baseball Villain
Patrick Dubuque at The Hardball Times on scapegoats in baseball. There will probably be days this season when we look back on the Barry Zito years and think, "There is the guy I wish I could blame for this losing streak." But we won't be able to.

Trying to find a baseball match on Tinder
To be fair, I don't think anyone can name a starting pitcher on the Padres. Like, I just watched Buster Posey homer off one of their starters about 30 times, and I have no idea what his name was. Cash...something? Cashman? Cashman Dunko? Eh, close enough.
