What You Need to Know

Revere Does Not Go Deep

by Daniel Rathman


The Tuesday Takeaway
When Ben Revere arrived at Globe Life Park yesterday evening, he did so three plate appearances shy of the post-World War II record for the highest total amassed without a big-league home run. As far as I could tell by scanning his spray chart and digging up video of deep fly balls, this triple on September 23, 2012, is the closest he’d ever come:

Whether Revere was aware of that fact, or whether he cared a whit about it, we will probably never know.

That one was a close second to Tulowitzki's when I decided which of the two to use.

It is good to learn that none of the pitchers back in your glory days ever had to quit the game because they had a "tired arm."

If only these young whipper-snappers were real men and learned to stay off your lawn, none of them would ever tear their ulnar collateral ligament again.
