Matt Vasgersian authors the most uncomfortable segue in the history of television in trying to lighten the mood after video of Brad Hawpe being hit in the head by a throw. I really like Vasgersian as a play-by-play man, but that's very unpleasent to watch. It's like something from the British Office, but it's real. . . For what it's worth, I do think Vasgersian was pretty stand up in showing his face to the Kissing Suzy Kolber crowd and owning up to his mistake in the comments section: "I am an idiot .. Save the racial stuff which is just flat out wrong, almost all of what has been posted on my regrettably horrific timing is spot on .. It was a bad decision made on live tv and i can absolutley understand how that make an announcer sound insensitive. Bad on the spot judgement. Nobody feels worse about it than I do guys" HT to Deadspin on both stories.
MLB Network talks about PECOTA. Harold Reynolds treats it as a dangerous religion out to ruin what baseball is made of. I get a head ache.
