Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 7-2-2014

Pittsburgh Press, July 2, 1914:

Pitcher Elmer Daily, of the Allegheny Steel team of Tarentum and Brackenridge, killed a dog with a batted ball Tuesday evening at Peterson park when the Steel team was practicing. A dog was chasing the ball over the field when it seized a hot one from Daily’s willow too soon after it had left the bat. The drive turned him end over end and left him inert on the ground.


No snark today. Just a “that really sucks”.

Ed Delahanty died 111 years ago today -- he'd have made a great reality show, too.

Plus the walking paradox (angel Pagan) and a knuckleballer who missed a year after trying to rip a phone book in half.

So last night, Cleveland turned a 7-2-4 triple play, with Brantley catching a liner from Gonzalez, nailing Gordon at home and Gomes throwing to Kipnis at 2B, getting Puig. Yasiel was called safe but a Francona challenge was successful. Mattingly then challenged the home plate portion, which was upheld. Look out for Angel Hernandez accessorizing like my little cousin, with two chainz and six bracelets.

Yesterday was Comiskey Park's birthday. The last game I went to at Comiskey was this one. Today's birthday rightfielder fell down on a fly ball and gave Frank Thomas his third career triple, before he'd hit his first home run. Thomas hit nine more triples and 521 HR over the next 18 years.

Brooks Conrad, the man who launched a thousand BTF postseason checklists, is back in the majors with the Padres.

The Game of 7/1/84 featured a pitching matchup between long-time teammates, a career day from a HoVG player who lasted 20 years, and a tying run getting thrown out at home in the eight. I believe that would be classified as "something for everyone."

Did you know that in their not-yet-22-year history, the Marlins have thrown five no-hitters? Five! Their embarrassment of riches is apparently not limited to winning the World Series.

Anyway, the Game of 7/1/14 was a pitching matchup between two of the five pitchers who have thrown those Marlin no-hitters. Its most notable performance came from someone who's completing his emergence as one of the absolute best players in baseball, and has of late been doing so in ways other than the one for which he is best-known.

Its most notable performance came from someone who's completing his emergence as one of the absolute best players in baseball, and has of late been doing so in ways other than the one for which he is best-known.

It's my belief that by the time he retires, Stanton will be the all time leader in strikeouts. In less than 5 seasons, he's currently in 675th place. By the end of the year he should be ~525th. At his current pace, he'll be somewhere around 50th after 10 years. If he can stay healthy, he'll be higher than that. And he'll be only 29.
