Rays vs. Astros GDT 3: This is the last baseball ever

New, comments

It's not really the last baseball ever, but maybe the All-Star break will go quicker if we pretend this is the last baseball game ever played.

I know I saw this play live, but what the hell is happening here?!

How good has Yunel Escobar been this season? He's been amazing. And to think he will be on the team and be cheap until 2015? That's just awesome.

Here's his nuts toss from yesterday's game. Name a Rays shortstop who has had a stronger arm than Yunel. It's been a long time since Julio Lugo, but he's the only comparable SS, I think. And even then, I can't remember Lugo having a game like Escobar's July 4th game.

Tarry forth, oh ill-reputed, ever-misunderstood middle-bagger.
