Arizona Diamondbacks had a dinosaur throw out the first pitch - SBNation.com

Don’t worry; it wasn’t a real dinosaur.

Didn't Tony LaRussa leave the organization?

Did Carl Everett see it? No one ever saw a Tyrannosaurus rex.

This is just clickbait. Not a real dinosaur.

This was the least weird thing about last night's game.

Dinosaur in Arizona? Was it's name Joe Arpaio?

Yes. You don't expect Mike Stanton to go hitless (with a sac fly), have his team score 11 runs anyway, and still lose. You don't expect Zack Greinke to give up three bombs and eight runs in four innings - and his team still win.

7&8 are so wrong, it was Julio Franco. He then played second base and went 2 for 4.

would have guessed Pujols.

Fun fact: Mike Morgan pitched for 12 MLB teams, and had losing records with nine of them. The other three: Texas (13-10 in 1999), Minnesota (4-2 in '98) and Arizona (7-6 in 2000-02).

Morgan's W/L record through age 37 (1997) was 117-167; his .412 WPCT is easily the worst among pitchers with that many decisions thru age 37 (Tom Hughes, who pitched from 1900-13, is second at .431). After that, though, Morgan was 24-19. It wasn't enough, however; of the 218 MLB pitchers with 300 decisions, only 26 have losing records. Morgan's 141-186 (.4312) edges out Hughes' 132-174 (.4313) as the all-time worst.

You have to be pretty good to have a losing record in 300+ decisions.
