San Francisco Giants Link Dump, 5/5

A link dump, I think, is like a shark. You know? It has to constantly move forward or it dies.

Pedro Martinez, Tim Hudson & Madison Bumgarner on Bat Waggles
The other day, Pedro Martinez talked a little bit about how bat waggles could tell a pitcher just where the hitter wanted the ball to be, but now here are Tim Hudson and Madison Bumgarner to explain why that's not too big of a deal. Yeah, take THAT, Pedro! What does that guy even know about pitching, anyway? Nothing, probably.

Side note: if you haven't read this excerpt from Pedro's autobiography, do it. Do it now. It's great, even if the fact that it's good contradicts my dumb joke that Pedro doesn't know anything about pitching.


Gay Dodger fans kiss on 'kiss cam' and crowd cheers
Do I have to praise Dodger fans and the Dodgers organization right now? Isn't there some way I can get out of it? Because, like, kiss cams are stupid, but still, no one does this. It's really easy to maintain the status quo, especially for people with jobs like Kiss Cam Operator, but someone in that organization took a chance and should be praised for I just threw up in my mouth. Not a little. A lot. This isn't right. The Dodgers aren't supposed to do good things. THIS ISN'T RIGHT.


Why MLB Teams Are Fleeing Venezuela
Is it because Pablo Sandoval's public comments since leaving the Giants have shown him to be a jerk, and the baseball world has unanimously decided his country should pay for that? No, it's, uh, because of increasing danger and political instability that makes running an academy there not worth the investment. I'd rather it was the Sandoval thing. That's way less depressing.


May the 4th Team
Yesterday was the day when everyone on the Internet got together to make Star Wars jokes and references for some reason, which makes it no different than any other day on the Internet. However, for the sake of nerd pride, we have to have one baseball/Star Wars link today, so let's look at this list of baseball players with Star Warsy names and wonder aloud why Greg Lukerson isn't on it. He has "Luke" right there in his name, you know. Seemed like a gimme.


How Filthy Is Your Beard?
Beards are unusually gross, which just goes to prove my point: STOP IT BASEBALL PLAYERS STOP IT RIGHT NOW THAT TREND IS STUPID

I feel that I did an excellent job of addressing the situation. Thank you for your time.
