    Pascual Perez Murdered

    NBC Sports

    two Spanish language newspapers are reporting that former major league pitcher Pascual Perez was murdered in a robbery in his home this morning in the Dominican Republic.
    RIP to one of the game's great characters.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Re: Pascual Perez Murdered

    Certainly hate to hear about this. He was a true character of the game. He was actually a pretty ddecent pitcher for a short time with the Braves. I remember that I-285 incident very well too. The TBS broadcasters laughed about that one for years and gave him the nickname I-285. He even had it on the back of his warmup jacket, IIRC. RIP Pascual Perez. You made the game fun.

    Vicente Padilla throws that pitch. Always throws it to Texieara(sp?) The 2 hate each other.

    I saw Perez throw that eephus pitch live during a game I was watching. And I think it was a perfect strike too.

    Same here. He was an odd one to say the least, but fun to watch. RIP.

    I thought about him last winter when I found myself on I-285.

    Didn't Pascual Perez also have a long-snap pick-off move, in which he would toss the ball between his legs to first?

    I saw him fake a throw between his legs but don't remember him actually doing it. But he may have. Wouldn't surprise me if he did.

    My pop and I were just talking about him a week or two ago. Wow. RIP
