GIF: Jason Marquis Says No

This may not work. That’s fine, y’all know I’m lucky if I bat at the mendoza line here. But I’ve got no snark, no jokes, no memes today. All I have for you is something I’ve never seen before in baseball. And you may not be able to see it, even though I made this GIF so that you might:


Did you see it? Look closely at Marquis’ head. He’s shaking the catcher off as he’s throwing the pitch. I didn’t notice it the first time. The broadcast team didn’t even notice it. But Bob @McVanderHuge did. So he gets a slow clap. Cause that’s just strange.

    I’m not sure he’s shaking the catcher off. I think he is prematurely regretting whatever garbage he has decided to pitch in there.

    He actually shakes off 2 or 3 signs in the whole motion.

    In Provincal (a dialect of French) Marquis means ‘thrower of waste and bile’ so MNzach is actually unknowingly on to something here…

    I don’t think he pays much attention to the catcher. He knows what he wants to throw and just throws it.
