Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez hit his National League-leading 33rd home run of the year last night. It required an obscene amount of running. Alvarez was able to circle the bases for a rare inside-the-park dinger after his shot to deep right-center bounded off the top of the wall and back toward the infield. His teammates Russell Martin and Garrett Jones then hit traditional over-the-fence home runs in succession to show Alvarez all the aerobic exercise was quite unnecessary.
Selfies. Still a thing.
Less than ideal timing.
Less than an hour before first pitch.
He’s listed at -500 at one Sportsbook.
Paying Justin Houston does seem like a reasonable alternative to drone strikes.
