For Your Brief Amusement: Ross Wolf’s Changeup

Ross Jaso CH SS

It’s no use concealing the fact, reader, that your life is a series of failures, each more disappointing than the last.

Rather than trying in vain to improve your own station in life, however — which course of action is likely to end only in even greater embarrassment — consider regarding the brief victories of other, more able-bodied and -minded humans. Like this changeup by Ross Wolf, for example, from earlier today — with which pitch Wolf struck out contact-oriented Oakland catcher John Jaso.

Regard the footage until its enchantment wears off. Then proceed to another area of the internet and repeat.

That truly was a nasty pitch. Knee high halfway home and in the dirt 30 feet later. Sure that’s a chance and not a splitty?

My series of failures continues. I cannot figure out how to move to another section of the internet for the purposes of repeating.

Mr. Cistulli, you are one of the most briefly amusing authors I’ve ever read.

Yes, though Cistulli prefers ‘in fun-sized multitudes’

In his post-game interview, Wolf was asked if his family successfully made the drive from southern Illinois in time to attend his first MLB start. Wolf explained that the trip was unfortunately nixed. The reason: “My dad’s a farmer and he was planting beans, so he couldn’t come down.”

Love the fact that Wolf was once traded straight up for Jake Fox.
