Jesus, I went to high school with Buck McNabb! Hadn't heard his name in a long, long time.

Red Sox Outright Sean O'Sullivan

Sean O'Sullivan is the name of a Boston hooligan stereotype in a bad comedy sketch, and yet he was actually on the Red Sox. How can the Red Sox cut Sean O'Sullivan?

Can I veer outside of baseball? Because there's a US diver called Steele Johnson in the Olympics.

Knightrider jersey + the Celtic font with goofball spacing + all American glassed out stare...is this from LiartownUSA?

I know less than pip about baseball. But there is a player named "Billy Ray Butler" with the nickname "Country Breakfast". I sometimes whisper this fact to myself.

I know it's just a nickname and we also have him to thank for (P.E.) Dee, but "Flash Gordon" still looks pretty sweet on a baseball card:

Did some reading about the Dead Ball Era last night and learned that

The week Francisco Barrios died, Salome Barojas made his debut for the White Sox.

The circle of great pitching names for the team ended there. Barojas was traded for Gene Nelson two years later.

A 2nd straight tirefire shitshow of a season for the Oakland Athletics was made a touch brighter recently with the acquisition of a cool young starting pitcher with the good baseball name Jharel Cotton.

Jharel Cotton has dominated in his first 3 big-league starts, featuring a Bugs Bunny changeup that makes big-league hitters look straight foolish.

The Athletics will most likely suck shit through a straw again in 2017, but I think I may tune in more often because I think they may have a pretty cool, crazy-young, intriguing starting rotation.

Sonny Gray, rookie phenom Sean "The Throwin' Samoan" Manea, solid sinkerballer Kendall Graveman, Jharel Cotton...could be kind of fun.

Oh yeah, they have another good pitching prospect, Daniel Mengden, who has A's fans fired up for his look alone:

Never stop being a reliever with a 7.50 ERA, Aaron Bummer.
