You can’t spell Badenhop without H-O-P-E
The Fish have just been swept by the Pirates. The time to panic be real annoyed is now. What can we learn from this series in Pittsburgh? That PNC Park is to the Marlins record as Jamie Moyer is to the team’s batting average. Good riddance, Pittsburgh.
- With a name like Penn, it is a given that you should be pitching in relief. Embrace your destiny, Hayden.
- If Badenhop doesn’t get the number 5 spot, there will be at least an 88.6% droppage in the amount of times we get to hear and/or read the name “Burke Badenhop.” It’s a fun name. Even if he stinks real bad, there’s that. And let’s not forget Badenhop’s many derivatives. Hopper, Hoppie, Hop? Come on. What do they call Dan Meyer or Sean West for short? Nothing that fun, I assure you.
- Dan Meyer is one of the few dudes in the bullpen right now who doesn’t make me want to gouge my own eyeballs out with a fork. Let’s just keep that going, shall we?
- Badenhop’s name appears first on the Marlins pitching roster. Coincidence? I think not. Unless you take the fact that they are listed alphabetically into consideration, which I don’t, since that does nothing to help my argument.
