Francona vs. Orsillo, or “Why We’ll Miss Don, Reason #27,849″

History has shown us that every Batman must have his Joker. Every Casear his Brutus. Every Marty McFly his Biff. Every foodie that best friend who just wants to go to Arby’s. It’s a circle of conflict that has kept this world spinning for years. Now we must add two more names to those classic confrontations: Don Orsillo and Terry Francona. For reasons I still don’t quite understand...

The Bat Flip Heard ‘Round Baseball

Warning to all who proceed to read the following rantings: I am likely going to make more out of Cleveland Indian Jose Ramirez’s Wednesday night bat flip than you believe should be made.
