Got to my seat just in time for the Brantley base hit that started the rally. I'm still taking donations to pay for my season seat next year.

It was in contention to be the logo but never adopted.

Here's the article where they talk about it.

Quote:

Gary Rollins: "The original design had a white cap with an orange bill. Now, there was a country club just outside of Houston, in Atascocita, that had just come out with a logo -- an 'A' with a star -- that really looked neat. So I went there and said, 'Can we buy that from you, so we can use it on the uniform?' They said, 'Buy it? Just give us tickets and we'll give the damn thing to you.' But Spec said, 'No, Gary, we can't do that. We have over 1,000 orange caps in storage that we've already bought for next season.' So that's how we stayed with the orange cap we already had.

No. No no no no no. From a weird fluke of the formula and ABs Yuli and FattyMcFatbutt has almost identical wRC+. But Yuli has always had way more production. Even when they were both struggling.

The StayPuff Marshmallow man had been about the least productive hitter in baseball all season long. In terms of doing the job of a DH/1B, getting hits, driving in runs, slugging. You name it. He sucked.
