Alex Meyer, considered by some to be the Nationals top pitching prospect was their lone representative in Sunday’s All-Star Futures Game in Kansas City. Meyer pitched 2/3 of a high leverage inning in a 17-5 game, which was surely indicative of how he will perform in similarly pressure-packed situations in the big leagues. Sure, he only threw six pitches, but I’m convinced. What an amazing six pitches they were. Every pitch he ever throws will be as effective as those six pitches. I can just feel it.
I know I’m not supposed to put stock in small sample sizes, or even miniscule sample sizes, but I can’t help myself. It’s an addiction. A disease, really. As I’m typing this, I just invested my life’s savings in the stock market because I just saw it go up a point. Won’t it keep going up forever? It totally will. It was a little cooler today than yesterday, does that mean global warming is over? Yes. Definitely.
Oops, gotta go, I’m late for my Small Sample Size Believers Anonymous meeting. I know that’ll help because some guy on the street yesterday told me it really worked for him.
