Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

Scooter?

I admit, perhaps I have been living in a cave the past year. However, as I flipped over to the Yankees/Cubs matchup on FOX, I discovered a nice little animated ball called Scooter explaining a changeup to the kiddies. How did he explain it? "When the batter is looking for something fast, the pitcher throws me really, really slow." Wow. Not only is that extremely annoying, but it has no informational value as well. A two-fer.

Can anyone tell me why FOX has Scooter around? And what in the world does Joe Buck think every time he has to take over after Scooter?

(during commercial break)

Buck: What the (bleep) was that?
McCarver: Reminds me of my third wife....
Buck: Who the (bleep) are you?

Ah well. Pedro tonight. Pedro tonight. Pedro tonight.
Fearless predictions:

1. Richie Sexson will strike out.
2. Bret Boone, if playing, will strike out.
3. Mike Morse will get a hit, but will also make a boneheaded play on defense.
4. Ryan Franklin will get limited run support, but will make up for it by giving up two home-runs, one to Beltran and one to Jose Reyes.
5. Fairly will exclaim, "GET THE BALL DOWN!!! GET IT DOWN!!! DOWN!!! BAAAAAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!"

Final question: Fairly..... or Scooter?
