Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

What the Hell? Friday -- Baseball and Irony Edition

Yesterday, Mets outfielder Angel Pagan (An-HELL Pah-GONE) accomplished a dual feet not seen in the last 55 years, hitting an inside-the-park home run, and starting a triple play in the same game - alas, a losing effort, as it turned out.

Each of these is pretty rare.  The two of them in the same game, at the hands of the same individual - well, that looks to be happening at about a twice-per-century pace.

See it all here.



Update: I guess you can't see it. Phooey!

Where's the irony, you might wonder?

The name Angel Pagan might not sound ironic in it's native Spanish, but it sure looks it to an English speaker.

The only thing better would be if Angel had been adopted by the parents of Boston Bruins right winger Miroslav Satan. Then, his nick-name would have to be Lucifer.
