What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
The post office says “neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” That’s because unlike a computer, they don’t need electricity to walk up to your mailbox. After a week of tornadoes and floods (two great ways of removing power lines, by the way), perhaps it is just another metaphor for those times when old ways work the best.
Moyer continues to pitch like his brethren from the dead-ball era, tossing slop in the mid-70s and tricking hitters into beating a ball seemingly made of lettuce into the ground. His most recent start saw the crafty lefty go 8 innings against Cleveland; an outing in which he only gave up two hits. However, one of those hits was a homer slugged by Russell Branyan, making the 505th dinger Moyer has allowed, which now ties him with hall-of-famer Robin Roberts.
That isn’t the only knot Moyer is in. He also added to his win and strikeout totals, tying in careers wins with Bob Feller and only being 10 Ks behind Sandy Koufax.
