Pitcher of the yarrrr

I was going to try to turn this into a big, full-featured post, but I just don’t have it in me right now. I mean, I really can’t make a big deal about who should be winning the Baseball Blogger Alliance’s Walter Johnson Award for best pitcher of the year. Everybody knows it’s going to be Justin Verlander — and rightfully so.

So yeah, here’s my ballot followed by a picture and then a video. They may be related, they may not. I haven’t decided yet. Feel free to rip my ballot in the comments!

5. Jered Weaver, California Angels of a parking lot in Los Angeles

4. James Shields, Tampa Bay Rays

3. Dan Haren, Anaheim Angels of Los Angeles, California, United States of America

2. C.C. Sabathia, New York Yankees

1. Justin Verlander, Detroit Tigers

I used to work at a paper where the agate guy would always delete the first two letters of DeJesus in the boxscores. Nobody ever complained.

P.S. Better things are coming.

One thought on “Pitcher of the yarrrr

  1. Jerry – I know that Danny went through some difufcilt times with SHU fans when he was a player at The Hall. Does he harbor resentment / ill will towards the university and or its administration? One would think that an alumnus of the university would take pride and want to better the school in which they came from. Clearly you have to be objective, as a reporter, but I would imagine / hope that you are a SHU fan, as you’re an alum!
