"[T]he center fielder felt a rumble at the end of the fourth. It arrived suddenly, and with great force."

"After Evans walked, and no batter appeared, home plate umpire Mike DiMuro strolled toward the bench. The crowd began to boo. The public address announcer waited. Where was Pagan?"

It's so embarrassing when you have to go to the bathroom and everyone's waiting for you...

Pinch hitter. If he has that situation, he may not be able to play the next inning.

I gotten to to the point in life where I'm just tired of going to the john. Been there, done that. Nothing new ever happens anymore. I just don't have time for it, yet I must. The Fascism of the pelvis.

Did he have to pinch a loaf or go tinky tinky woo woo?

Kit said...

I hate that when that happens.

Hard for the manager to get mad at him, all things considered.

Human heroes still are humbled by their bodies made from mere clay.

But does he use Nivea cream?

If you cannot trust your own asshole who then can you trust?

During the cocaine years of the 1980's, this bathroom problem occurred a few times[Dave Parker comes to mind]. However, they weren't doing #1 or 2 in there!

I can't ever remember that happening way back in the 50s or 60s.

WV "bagrap" Mr oh20's commentary.

What can a player possibly do when he really has to go?

Depends.

Going to the bathroom, before Mr. Crapper invented the "overhead" with the pull chain ... meant you'd stick a "chamber pot" on the floor. And, you could mount this anywhere.

Since going to watch a baseball game is on par with watching grass grow ... And, people have time to go to a stand to buy a beer. Or a hot dog ... why not think there's enough time for a bathroom break?

Meanwhile, yesterday, over in Helsinki (Finland). A ferry boat captain got caught in the bathroom, with a faulty lock. So his ferry (along with 54 passengers) got banged up on a rock.

How did this baseball game end, now? Has it finished, yet?

Not nearly as embarrassing as shitting yourself at home plate or trying to leg out a grounder with a pants full...

Was it a 5.8 rumble on the Richter Scale?

Carol Herman,

There are numerous studies that show people who hate baseball have low IQ's, self-esteem and are for the most part friendless.

Carol Hernman you are fuckin' moron.

You don't like baseball?

Ricpic is right. You are a fuckin' loon!

Trooper York said...

I am going to the mattresses.

They could've used a pinch shitter.
