A GIF and a Tune: Jose Fernandez and Talking Heads

(Note: This is technically not a GIF, since it’s length prohibits it from GIFation. Please accept my repentance for duping you.)

This past Friday, Marlins starter Jose Fernandez had himself a day. A good day, to be more exact. A very good day, to be even more exact. He fanned 14 over eight innings whilst allowing three hits and a lone walk. He was, as Talking Heads would say, burning down the house. Luckily, said house was Marlins Park, so casualties were low.

Watch (and listen):

With all the swinging strikes, I would have gone with “Same as it ever was.”

The Great Curve has a lot of merit to it. Crosseyed and Painless might also have been a good choice.
