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:

Marquis

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.

He does it right as his left foot hits the ground. Unfortunately, the size of the GIF makes it very difficult to notice.

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…

Oh, Beepy.

Someone please note this on his B-R page.

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