Christian Yelich Is Not a Scientist, Guys
Christian Yelich played in yesterday’s All-Star Game. He did not do much with two at-bats and a strikeout. Yelich was not able to deliver a cat to the Lockwood residence (Shouts to all who listen to Pardon My Take). FOX mic’d up the players to chat with them while the game was going on. FOX Sports Joe Buck basically had his own podcast during the game. They had Yelich and Cody Bellinger on at the same time to promote the Yeli vs. Belli rivalry that the league wants to promote all over the place. Buck asked Yelich about Justin Verlander’s juiced balls comment and Yelich delivered a great non-scientist response.

Dr. Yelich could work for me. The scientist of hitting dingers? Or the scientist of being a professional hitter. Either one works for me. I didn’t watch much of the All-Star Game due to obligations, but I did hear Justin Verlander’s Hall of Fame worthy back-off about the juiced balls. That dude cowered so quickly when they brought it up to him. He is a shadow gangster of Major League Baseball. We do not have a lot of them in the sport, but he is definitely one of them. Other shadow gangster nominees are Madison Bumgarner and Jake Arrieta. I wouldn’t put Yasiel Puig in there, because I think if that wrong thing happened he would kill a guy.
