I've got to give a shoutout on a Twitter account I discovered a few months ago (I swear it's not me). The link is above. Basically they just quote some of the ridiculous and hilariously inaccurate things they say on MLB tonight. I often end up giving a solid out loud laugh at their tweets. Here are some gems.
"[Trout] is not scoring runs." - Harold Reynolds (Trout leads the AL in runs scored)"They finally moved [Trout] to the 3-spot, and he's taken off." - Harold Reynolds (h/t @FlyByKnite)"Granderson is a 20 HR 20 3B 20 2B 20 SB player."-Harold (Hasn't done this since 2007)"Trevor Bauer could become one of the worst first round draft picks ever." - Mitch Williams"Mark Trumbo never cared about OBP in his life up until this year or maybe last." - Greg Amsinger"[Weaver] hasn't thrown the ball very well his last few times out." - Mitch Williams (1 R in 14 IP over last 2 starts)Reynolds thinks lincecum will get "close to 20 million a year" from another team to be a closer[QUOTE]"A no-hitter means no runs, no hits." - Mitch Williams[/QUOTE"I don't give a flip if my 2nd hitter has a low OBP." - Harold Reynolds
"The OBP of Brandon Phillips means nothing." - Mitch WilliamsKenny: "So you're saying [Jay Bruce] is the best player on the Reds this year?" Reynolds: "No, I'm saying he's the MVP.""Harvey has probably had a torn UCL since high school and didn't know about it." - Mitch Williams"Myers wouldn't have been the same player on the Royals. They don't have Longoria to teach him." - Darryl Hamilton"I would put [Miguel Cabrera] on base to tire him out." - Darryl Hamilton"Andrew McCutchen, B.J. Upton. They should be mirroring each other statistically." - Jerry Manuel"I thought Liriano pitched well." - Jerry Manuel (line of 4 IP, 9 H, 4 ER)"J.J. Hardy is probably the best all-around shortstop in the game today." - Mitch Williams"Detroit signing Torii Hunter was one of the best free agent signings in MLB history." - Dan Plesac"The inside-the-park homer [in the 2007 All-Star Game] put Ichiro on the international map." - Harold Reynolds"Tyler Clippard is having a rough season." - Mitch Williams (Clippard has a 2.11 ERA)"If you're hitting .300 but it's not a 'heavy' .300 and you're not doing damage, I'm not buying it." - Mitch Williams on Joey Votto"McCutchen might not even be the MVP of his own team!" - Harold Reynolds"Shane Victorino is playing in San Francisco, which is close to Hawaii.""[Jason Giambi] is still a valuable hitter." - Mitch Williams (Giambi is batting .185/.286/.384)"You can talk about on-base percentage all you want, but I didnít give [Votto] $225 million to put him on base.Ē - Harold Reynolds"Anibal Sanchez is not a top 50 starter." (8th in baseball in ERA and fWAR)I'll stop, because I could go on forever. It's amazing these people get paid to talk about baseball."The NL Central isn't the best division in the NL...the Dodgers are better." - Harold Reynolds
