Drake LaRoche Throwing Out The First Pitch Is So So Weird.
Livan Hernandez will out throw out the ceremonial first pitch for NLDS Game 1, per @VCamillo_Nats. Game 2: Drake and Adam LaRoche. Wow.

Goddamn, I thought I was done with that pipsqueak Drake LaRoche. What a weirdo this kid is and it really starts with his father. We hear all the time about ‘mama’s boy’, but this is like a son attached to his father’s hip. Like will Adam LaRoche go to college with him? What about the first time he’s getting with a girl? Is Adam with chaw in his mouth giving him pointers? I’m sure Drake already chews tobacco and sneaks beers when mom’s not looking so maybe he’s a little more manly than I am. But this is one of the weirder things I’ve heard a team do for a first pitch ceremony. Nothing gets me fired up than an average first baseman and his weird fucking son.
Unrelated to this game, my AL predictions since the games start today – Rangers in 4 and Boston in 3.
