Put a tear or 2 in my eyes. Love that guy, love that team! 🥰

He was a great player, hated seeing him against us as a Sox guy and all the other Sox killers the Royals have had through the years.

No LoCain for the soul

Hosmer has been DFA’d by the Red Sox. 2 HRs and batting .236 in 100 ABs. Might be over for him soon.
But fret not–he’ll get by. Still being paid by San Diego through next year to the tune of over $25 million, I believe.
@mayjay he was way over paid! No tears for him.
@approxinfinity before I sputter out never heard this before! Crazy!
If they have a time limit for the batters, LoCain would never make it. He redid his gloves after every pitch! Look how long his celebration took. He was so speechless! They gave it 30 mins, it went over. Loved it.

@Crimsonorblue22 said in LoCain retirement:

The new rules do apply to batters. They get one timeout per at-bat, but have to call “time” while in the box before stepping out. They are required to be in the box and ready for a pitch before the pitcher’s 20 second clock gets down to 8 seconds. Not being ready, or not calling “time” properly or calling it another time, is an automatic “strike” on the batter.
You are right, though…maybe that is really why LoCain retired. He’d strike out without a pitch being thrown!
Funny how such a fast guy could be so slow.
