@RataTatTom I worded that really poorly. I was referencing the conversation from effectively wild the other day, in which they discuss players with ONLY 1 plate appearance. Of the players with just one plate appearance in their career, none of them hit homeruns. Of the players with just two PAs in their career, none it homeruns.
But of all the players who had just 3 PAs in their career, one guy named Luke Stewart hit a homerun. That's what I was trying to convey.

they start talking about it at 28:55
So there was a player who in 1921 hit a homer on his first PA. He then went 0-2 on his next two PAs, and that was the end of his career. There are no players with 1 or 2 PAs who hit homeruns.
This was all from effectively wild the other day. http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=25406
@Mike Petriello @PagansOedipalComplex @DBrim Fun fact on that, by the way, the fewest PAs needed to hit a homer in the majors was 3.
@Disgruntled Goat @mawp @Mike Petriello From that article:
4. Jonathan Gray, Rockies: Gray might have the best pure stuff in the Minors, which is why some scouts considered him the best prospect in the 2013 Draft. He drew comparisons with Stephen Strasburg and Gerrit Cole before going No. 3 overall and signing for $4.8 million. Gray's fastball combines outstanding velocity (topping 100 mph) and heavy life, and his slider can be just as devastating.
@Disgruntled Goat @mawp @Mike Petriello I'm only going from the context, like you, so I can't say for sure. But a quick google search reveals that that phrase does exist elsewhere.
@Disgruntled Goat @mawp @Mike Petriello well it is...
@Disgruntled Goat @Mike Petriello heavy things are hard to lift things. is my guess.
@Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) @capnsparrow Why stop at 9. Fill out a 25 man roster

@Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) Most people are going to be confused by 20-80 ratings. They will wonder why you gave your own son a B-minus in cuteness or whatever.
@Omer (beercoozie) @BirdBird @Santa Blahs Sadly. that type of transaction is illegal most places.

@Disgruntled Goat @DBrim @mawp matt kemp is your favorite former dodger? Or are you talking about Brian Wilson?
@Disgruntled Goat former favorite dodger or favorite former dodger? Surely the two are not the same
@666foldamort And I wouldn't even call Top Deck seats shitty. Kinda nice, tbh
@Batted Bob Ted Williams Proven Joc Pederson Unproven et cetera
@666foldamort @DBrim it's smart to get involved in industries that have antitrust exemptions and massive taxpayer support.
@I Am PFP And So Can You @DBrim says more about the Astros than the economics of baseball as a whole.
@DKD ...Kemp is 30 with a troubling series of serious leg injuries, poor defensive skills, and a large, long-term contract. Puig comes out far better in all of those comparisons. What's your point?

@jWerthfan @mawp @Mike Petriello @Catfishin You come here for no reason?
@Table (dick) @Purple Drank exactly. Jim Rome.
@Table (dick) too good to imitate. I hope Mike hires chuck.
@jWerthfan @mawp @Mike Petriello @Catfishin At the end of the day, this is entertainment. In many ways it's like a call-in radio show. If you don't want to be made fun of, don't call in. If you do call in, make sure you present yourself well.
Even if Chuck is terribly hurt and never comes back, the fact that Mike published his awful, awful question gave me and the rest of the readers a good laugh. So that was probably a good decision on his part.
Jim Rome got massively successful for a reason.
@jWerthfan @Mike Petriello @Catfishin
pretend this is me talking: Crappy couch, used wrong players, wrong batting order,st Louis game,got 6 good innings from Kershaw, why not bring in harem. He was pitching kites out. Why not j.Turner in for Gordon all he was batting .325 4
Now, don't mock me. See if you can.

@DBrim no really. He's talking about Kershaw's "demons"
In case people want to get infuriated today:
Skip to around 1:07 to hear him "rant" about the Dodgers offseason moves. It's really, really awful, even by sports radio standards.
@Uncultured Bastard It vaguely looks like an old timey leather helmet.
Does Jared Massey comment here?
@itsthatguywhodoesstuff @mawp yes. I too was that then

@itsthatguywhodoesstuff break out your old rollerblades. Take your exercise back to the 90s
@Santa Blahs you overestimate my powers of observation.
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @nsxtasy @mawp it isn't so much the salary as the roster spot for the next 5 years. The salary just makes him hard to move.
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @mawp @nsxtasy maybe that's true, but the word "value" doesn't mean "ability". It has a bang-for-buck element.
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @nsxtasy Heisey makes 1.7 million. Ethier makes 10 times that.
@Purple Drank @DKD no, drank. padres success = dodger failure. duh
