Too painful for words.

If only he had a glove. Or, I dunno, eyes.

I'm rather disappointed that this thread has been up for two whole hours and RJ of the North still hasn't linked to his favorite thread.

It was catcher's interference. Goldschmidt's bat hit his arm, causing him to move his mitt/take his eye off the ball. As at bats go, it probably wasn't his favorite.

It works on so many levels!

The fact that you can actually see his cup move is what elevates this to poetry.

I hope he sues Brandon League for $1.2 million.

Sorry. Busy with work.

But here it is - a BTF classic.

If a pitch to the nads is inevitable, relax and enjoy it.

You gotta ring them bells, you gotta ring them bells
You gotta make 'em sing and really ring them bells
It's such a painful thing to hear 'em ting a ling
You gotta ring. them. bells.

Oh god, the pain.
   12. What's the realistic upside, RMc? Posted: April 20, 2014 at 07:31 PM (#4689866)
Oh, nuts!

Jeebus, you're right. I watched it quite a few times, but was following the ball - not believing that neither he nor the hitter got a piece of it.

I definitely Federo-winced.

Well, this gives the term "pitch-framing" an entirely new meaning.

The funniest part about that clip is when he got hit in the nuts.

I can't wait for the George C Scott reimaging!
