If the best hitter on your team leads the league in strike outs

It doesn't mean your hitter is good, it means your team really sucks.

If your hitter draws 30% of your blind faith die hard fans consistently and you keep him on the team because without those 30% of fans you'll have to fold the team it doesn't mean your hitter is a great player, it means your team really sucks.

Fat Nixon is not a great Republican politician. He's not even a powerful Republican politician with his measly 30% of blind faith die hard MAGAT basement dwellers. The only reason the Republican team lets him play is because they have nothing else to offer. Nothing, zilch, nada.

Message to MSM, the only reason the Republican team lets him play is THEY REALLY FUCKING SUCK!!!!

His strikeout record stood for almost 30 years until another “not great player” came along…


… named Mickey Mantle.

Your theory may fit politics… but it doesn’t fit baseball.

I was going to post the same thing you did. Ruth and Mantle's Yankees sure didn't "really suck".

It's not that he's just the worst person ever to occupy the oval office, it's the bigger impact of being a Russian agent.
