Danny Salazar Night in America
The Purpose of This Post
The purpose of this post is to announce that Cleveland right-hander Danny Salazar, of the Santo Domingo Salazars, is starting tonight (Monday) at 8:10pm ET against Minnesota — a game which is available gratis, care of MLB.TV.

Regarding Salazar, Why He’s Notable
One notable quality, with regard to Salazar, is his fastball, which is noted, by means of its power, for breaking the cedars of Lebanon.

Regarding Salazar, Why Else He’s Notable
Another notable quality apropos Salazar is his split-change, which is known, on account of its majesty, to make the deer give birth and strips the forests bare.

Regarding Salazar, A Third Reason He’s Notable
So far as Danny Salazar is concerned, a third reason he’s notable is for his slider, which is average or slightly above average.

Action Footage:
Here’s video footage of — courtesy both SportsTime Ohio and Jeff Sullivan, from a recent post written by the latter — of Salazar throwing a fastball at 100 mph fastball by Miguel Cabrera for a strikeout:

The index finger on the satisfaction-seal hand is freaking me out a little bit

Was just thinking the same thing. Was he in a motor boating accident?

Must be a different motor-boating technique than I’m familiar with…Nonetheless, the finger is disturbing.

The hand on the seal is an accurate representation of the hand of Bob Wickman.

It’s actually just a partial view of the hand of Armando Alfonseca.
