Kim Hyun-soo blast first Major League homerun

(Via MBCsports+)

New O’s addition, Kim Hyun-soo, just blasted his first Major League homerun today, off reliever Jeff Manship at the top of the 7th inning, giving the O’s a 5-4 lead. After hitting his first homerun in the Major leagues, Joey Rickard replaced Kim there at left field… before the game, Kim was batting .386 (17 for 44 with 3 doubles) in the season… this after a terrible spring, almost getting him demoted in the minor leagues, and/or shipping him back to South Korea… Here’s what I have to say, spring training stats are FUCKING overrated.

Congratulations to Kim on hitting his first homerun in the big leagues.

    1. Try getting out of an IRS audit for the 80’s when your ONLY job was a line cook who liked to entertain groupies, who played in Nevada on weekends! Like those condoms paid for themselves.😎 It wouldn’t surprise me if me and the ambulatory orange hornets nest we now call a presidential candidate trump made the same amount of fucking money then. At least I spent the fucking money on exotic guitars, drugs and women, maybe even in that order, yeah, most likely in that order. Gawd Damn, the fucking music both sucked and was awesome.

      Anyway, OG you know I fucking love you, but would it kill you to give a like once in awhile? If you fuck like you comment, well… ONLY care about receiving. Basically you are a fucking drummer and ( or a republican) they never made it more than a week with any woman who would put up with them. Haha . NO seriously, like this fucking shit and give me fucking accolades! I also know that you’re married and content, but stop doing the same old beat, maybe if you’d like this comment more if you would upvote the people who runs it.

      Anyway, Hi Ren!

      Also, Hi aresachela, and a special thanks from me not having to pronounce your name in person, I’m sure that I would mess it up and I am sure it sounds beautiful spoken, however I am probably not the person that you want to speak it. I love the back and forth between you and Ren. You were an asset at the old site and you keep him in check now that he’s an international baseball blogger. I love your enthusiasm and I really like the way you post. It’s cute😉

      Shout out to all the bloggers, thanks for writing, researching and reading. I haven’t went to the other site in almost two months and yet, whilst I am pooping, I am on this jam every day. Not trying to bring causality into this, but I think I am now regular BECAUSE of faninterference!😬 Either that or my steady diet of beers, coffee and gas station hamburgers may have something to do with it. Haha

      1. Slappy – there’s your “like” but only because you specifically asked for it. As a general rule I don’t bother with likes, thumbs or any other easydoesit responses; I prefer conversations if and when I’m feeling voluble, and I find these little posttextual clickbait responses aversive to encouraging dialogue.

        1. Thanks for indulging a kind hearted drunk.😊 I just like to let my internet besties know how much I appreciate their feedback and columns. Without feedback I worry that all you awesome people don’t know how much you mean to me. Also, ” The power of Slappy compels you, the power of Slappy compels you” I know you’ve probably forgotten more than I ever learned, but I fear you come across as too stodgy and ivory tower-ish ( at least to me) and I wanted to make you kinda laugh and reconsider your opinions on the community.

          In MY darkest times a few months ago, this blog may have literally saved my fucking life, do you know how cheap opiates are in N.E.? I went from nearly being homeless, jobless and becoming a junkie because…whatever. I am now in a position to quit one of my jobs because the overtime in my main gig allows me to laugh at the measly 14 dollars an hour I WAS getting paid at the shit job I WAS doing. Five months later and I’m getting tips from one of the best Chefs I’ve ever worked for ( he spent eight year’s in San Francisco as a sushi chef and worked as a sous chef for many of N.E. finest restaurants) and he’s co-owner of both the restaurant I work for and he is co-owner of THE store in Ogunquit and I am soon to be in the position of my wife and I being in enviable tenants of being property managers for beach front rentals that go for 1800 dollars a week, except we get the 2 bedroom for 1500 a month! On the beach baby! My ownership even consider me an enough of a asset to pay off my present landlord three months to break the lease!

          It’s the fucking likes and feedback from this little community that makes me persist. I don’t believe in religion, but I certainly believe in people ( should probably mention that if you have a Trump/Carson sticker, then you should politely die of a brain aneurysm because you’re only wasting it anyway, like …buy the biggest Harley you can and go on the highway in shorts and sandals if you vote republican) and everyone made me feel like it’s okay!

          In my darkest moments over the last five months, a lot of you reached out and it made a friggan difference! I just wanted to let you know that a simple kindness if you’ve thought the comment wasn’t horrible, maybe, just maybe…had anyone else read your column, let them know that you appreciate their opinion or take them the fuck down for their idiocy ( which I love the way you do it all sciency and word lernin like Para Sailon would say) but really OG, you could save a life!

          You are the best of us, we all wish we could write as well as you but know that we probably never will and that sucks. Again, it’s a simple kindness that may let someone know that their lives may matter and a like from OG carries more weight than you realize. Please don’t think I am criticizing, I just wanted you to know that you’re not talking to a bakers dozen anymore. Doing the math I think that there might be almost 20 of us now! Haha.

          Thanks for responding…


  1. “Here’s what I have to say, spring training stats are FUCKING overrated.”

    True. Logan Kensing made a opening day roster this year because of those, and an injury to one Alex Wilson.

    Also worth noting? rumor has it Kensing was spotted looking shifty and holding bolt cutters underneath his shirt as he scurried away from Wilson’s car one night
