Minor League Guy, shockingly, is not related to Unknown.
Well, it’s not like the information is incorrect.
Perhaps he might fit in better in Japan. If you check out the MLB Gameday pages for today’s games in Japan, you’ll see that the tab titles for the page say “Seattle Mariners at undefined” and “Oakland Athletics at undefined”.
Fangraphs/Notgraphs editors: embiggen is not a word. Take note.
Nobody? Oh well.
As a matter of fact, embiggen is a perfectly cromulent word.
As everyone knows, it’s perfertly cromulent.
but…but…Then how does a noble spirit embiggen the smallest man?
Maybe not but found this…….I’m pretty sure that is not a word. The word “embiggens” was made up by writers for “The Simpsons” and was used in the episode “Lisa the iconoclast”.
the writers defined embiggen as “to grow in size”
That’s the exact reason that they use the word.
“A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man.” ~Jebediah Springfield.
Good enough for me.
(But actually it was Oscar Taveras)
Anyone else have to embiggen to make sure minor league guy had 2 arms?
Embiggen has found its way into string theory
Not quite as good as:
Is his last name ‘League Guy’ or just ‘Guy’?
Actually, its Legegoi, a traditional Angolan name. Its an Ellis Island thing.
Where’s his right arm?
Probably why he’s still in the minors
