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.
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:
Bat hits ball. Ball goes up…too high…
…BAD BAT! YOU GO BOOM!
Bat tries to say it’s sorry and jump back into Orlando’s hands.
Orlando is still too mad at bat.
Orlando leaves bat behind. Bat is sad. Bat is lonely.
Bat was a bad bat. Bat feels shame.
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:
