    I used past tense. There were two years in particular were he was excessively the toast of the town.

    I get that this is MO's baseball thread but what does the king have to do with it.

    And for the record if you didn't like something in the past tense it's no me gustó. Accent on the o.

    Present tense- no me gusta
    Past tense- no me gustó

    I am just getting into Fangraphs. I like Carson Cistuli's podcast because I enjoy his nerdy sense of humor and Cameron comes on once a week. I guess you could say I'm indifferent at this point.

    King wanted a thread for he and I to discuss baseball. Here it is.

    I have a man crush on Joey Votto. So there's that.

    I'm so excited for baseball season. Little league, major league and family at the park league, I'm excited for all of them.
    This aggression will not stand, man!

    I have not, my man. Just been working a lot and dealing with some shit. I also some a lot of my time on here arguing with the same people...for no reason whatsoever.

    One of my chief complaints with the game is that a lot of the positional players don't seem to matter that much. Like, it's mostly, as a game, a one on one with the pitcher vs. the batter. Arguably 2 on one if you include the catcher.

    Regardless, as much as I loved watching people turn a double or even dare I say, a triple play, or rob someone of a home run, the other guys don't matter so much.

    Is this notion unfair? Am I missing something? Should I not be concerned that for the vast amount of the game the other players are just standing around?

    Well, no, I suppose it's not unfair. It is a game, that at it's heart, is centered on the battle between the pitcher and the batter. I'd guess I'd say that's part of it's beauty rather than a detriment. That said, every player on the field has somewhere to be and a reason for being in that place and once a ball is hit that adjusts depending on where it is hit. So even if a left fielder isn't involved in a catch by a center fielder, it's still his job to be in the general vicinity in case something goes awry. Likewise, on a routine grounder to the shortstop with no body on, a catcher's duty is to get behind first base in case of an error, a second baseman's duty is to cover second in case of the same situation, the third basemen third and the pitcher home while the left fielder in this case should be backing up second in case of a bad throw. So, while every player isn't directly involved in each play, there's a place where they should be and a firmly designed reason for said player to be there.

    You could use somewhat of the same logic behind the batting order. Different managers have different philosophies. One being the righty-lefty-righty philosophy. I know Ned Yost likes that, where if your lead off man is righty, then your 2-hole hitter is going to be a lefty and so on. It's designed to not let a pitcher get comfortable throwing a single pitch to a single location or using the same pitch sequence over and over again.

    There's so many intricacies to each pitch, that that's the real beauty of the game.
