Matt LeCroy Makes Old Men Cry


There have been some bad performances in the history of the catcher position.

Mackey Sasser rifling every other throw back to the pitcher into centerfield...

Anything by AJ Pierzynsky...

Mike Piazza trying to act straight...

Jake Gyllenhaal in "Brokeback Mountain"...

But, absolutely none of these can cause a near-octogenarian to cry (At least not on national TV... that Gyllenhaal performance is scary... or so we've heard).

Former Twins 1st Baseman/Catcher/How-The-Hell-Did-You-Make-The-Majors Matt LeCroy not only allowed seven (for those fo you who can't grasp that, here's the numerical value: 7) stolen bases against the Astro's, he managed to Make his manager cry while doing it. Once, in a little league game, I allowed 6. That got me traded for the kid that tried to catch fly balls with his hat. This performance got Matt yanked in the middle of an inning. Something that hasn't happened since Julio Franco was playing short for the Jerusalem Giants next to some guy they called Jesus.

At some point in time, if you're the Nats GM, don't you look at Matt and say to yourself "Self, this guy blows. Lets trade him to Steinbrenner for the ghost of Bernie Williams and Matsui's broken wrist bone"...

And thats not the end of it (Although I wish it were). After the game, in the press conference, Frank Robinson cried like a schoolgirl who just lost her virginity to the janitor for pulling LeCroy out. LeCroy responded with "Even my dad would have pulled me at that point". No Matt, at that point in time your dad would have donned a disguise and left out the back entrance...

Generally speaking, there are several main techniques made use of by data mining software:
clustering, distinction, regression and association approaches.
Approach human resource professionals and companies
and ask what skills and qualities they look for in
staff and be able to tick all the boxes before applying.
Data mining is mostly a relatively new term that represents the process by
that predictive patterns are made from information.

Hostas come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes and can be found in
almost every home landscape. Owning a regular lawn mower does not mean you have to
give up on mulching your yard; you just have to be willing to do some
work. This same person spread several yards of the mulch around their house
before they realized the problem, and it ruined many
of their plants.
