Peacocks actually can fly; they’re just really shy about it.
Washington (6) at New York NL (4) | 19:10 ET
What the Big Deal Is
The big deal in this game is how Bradley Peacock is making his first major-league start for the Nationals.
On Account of Why That’s a Deal, Big or Otherwise
Bradley Peacock’s first major-league start is a pretty big deal owing to his excellent minor-league numbers — or, at least his excellent Double-A numbers.
Regarding the Aforementioned Numbers
Here are Peacock’s minor-league numbers from 2011:
At Double-A: 98.2 IP, 11.77 K/9, 2.10 BB/9, 0.36 HR/9, 1.87 FIP
At Triple-A: 48.0 IP, 9.00 K/9, 4.50 BB/9, 0.94 HR/9, 4.18 FIP
On Account of Why Peacock’s Debut Is a Deal, Part II
Bradley Peacock’s first major-league start is also a pretty big deal because it allows one to ejaculate “Let the peacock fly!”
Regarding That Comment, What’s Funny About It
That comment is pretty funny, on account of peacocks can’t actually fly.
Regarding That Comment, What’s Funny About It, Part II
That comment is also pretty funny, on account of the word ejaculate is in it.
