Random observation from the Phillies-Cards game

I’ve only been watching it sporadically, but I think it’s worth noting that when Roy Halladay faced Albert Pujols in the top of the third (a) Roy Halladay worked fast; and (b) Albert Pujols didn’t step out of the box between pitches.

Given that those two are the absolute best at what they do on the planet, there’s probably a lesson in there somewhere.

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
