What The Hell Was That?

In Monday’s 5-4 win over Salt lake, Josmil Pinto scored in the 4th inning to tie the game at 4. His high-five with Orlando Arcia was, um, interesting.

High five for you!

HIGH FIVE! wait. What the?

Hey. That’s no moon high five. That’s a space station your middle finger.

Dude. Really?

ORLANDO ARCIA SMASH!

Here’s a little story about Sky Sox shortstop, and Milwaukee Brewers top prospect, Orlando Arcia (yes, he is the real deal) and his bat:

Sox eat the Bees 5-4

Bat hits ball. Ball goes up…too high…

 

Sox eat the Bees 5-4

…BAD BAT! YOU GO BOOM!

 

Sox eat the Bees 5-4

BOOM!

 

Sox eat the Bees 5-4

Bat tries to say it’s sorry and jump back into Orlando’s hands.
Orlando is still too mad at bat.

 

Sox eat the Bees 5-4

Orlando leaves bat behind. Bat is sad. Bat is lonely.
Bat was a bad bat. Bat feels shame.

 

This One’s For…Nick!

Some guy named Columbo (spelled Coulombe) on the Nashville Sounds pitched against the Sky Sox in the Sounds’ 9-8 win on Thursday night (he faced the last 2 batters in the 7th, retiring both). From what I understand, Columbo did it while wearing his trademark raincoat while smoking a cigar. I don’t know about you but this sets a terrible example for the children that were present at Security Service Field at Mile High on $3 craft beer night and makes a mockery of the fine game of baseball. If it’s not the forever-long games; the foul, soul-sapping weather; or the packs of wild animals that constantly invade the field, we now have to deal with some jamoke that ditches the traditional pajama-esque baseball outfit to dress up as a fictional 1970’s TV detective. The shame.

Anyhoo, to commemorate 4-20, here’s a picture of Orlando Arcia & Hernan Perez:
