Oh, Javy. What did you do to that poor innocent iPad? During Monday night’s game against the Braves, Javier Baez tried to adeptly turn a double play with a sidearm throw from second base to first. That plan failed, and instead the ball sailed hilariously off the mark and into the Braves’ dugout where it hit an iPad sitting innocently on the bench.
That iPad never stood a chance. Just hanging out, minding its own business, enjoying some baseball on a rainy Monday night, and BAM — an errant throw takes it out without warning.
Baez redeemed himself later in the game with a base hit to center that set the Cubs up for a two-run single by Ben Zobrist, but he’s definitely on Brian Snitker’s list now that the Braves manager will have to drive over to the Apple Store tomorrow and pick up a new one. And nobody likes an impromptu trip to the Apple Store.
After heading to the mound to toss some warm-up pitches, Scherzer threw one pitch that bounced wide, then reportedly indicated to manager Dusty Baker that he was done. You Cheap Utah Jazz Jerseys can see in the video below that he mouths “I can’t go” to Baker and motions to his neck before exiting the Cheap US Jerseys game.
This only proves the age-old saying, Never Bat. It can only end in tears.
Scherzer reportedly took himself out of the game due to neck spasms, which he says stemmed from sleeping weirdly last night. If he only took himself out of the game as a precaution and that’s the extent of the injury, then Nats fans should be very happy.
