A friend shared this blog on Facebook, as did I, writing, "I think we ought to be satisfied with the firepower of Aroldis Chapman and leave well enough alone. This is more fireworks than the end of The Natural. And in grand sabermetrics style, an out was avoided and a runner would be on base; if we could find him or the base or the stadium."

The question? "What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% the speed of light?"

Yikes!

That's actually what happened to the dinosaurs. And Willy Tavares.

I am surprised that a similar reaction has not been created by Hamilton and Bowe attempting a double steal. Avoiding this is probably why Hamilton has been promoted.

I was never much of a fan of the "What If...?" comics.
