Ryan Dempster, Derek Holland impersonate Will Ferrell impersonating Harry Caray

I don’t think anyone has so thoroughly dominated a celebrity impression the way Will Ferrell has dominated the Harry Caray impression. The evidence: no one actually impersonates Harry Caray anymore. They all impersonate Ferrell doing Caray.  Like Ryan Dempster and Derek Holland did at the MLB Fan Cave recently:

Not bad for baseball players. But at some point Will Ferrell is gonna have to apologize for unleashing that on the public.

Braves starter Julio Teheran dazzled in his return from the 10-day disabled list on Sunday, tossing six no-hit inning against the Padres. He walked three and struck out 11 batters on 95 pitches. Unfortunately for Teheran and for the Braves, the no-hit bid ended quickly as reliever Shane Carle surrendered a one-out single to Cory Spangenberg in the seventh inning. Nevertheless, the Braves went on to win 4-1 over the Padres.

Teheran, 27, went on the disabled list on June 5 with a right thumb contusion. He apparently suffered the injury while batting during his June 4 start against the Padres. Following Sunday’s effort, Teheran now carries a 3.97 ERA with a 67/36 K/BB ratio in 77 innings this season.

Coincidentally, Teheran has a spotless ERA on Father’s Day across four starts. Here were the results from his previous three starts:

  • June 16, 2013 vs. Giants: 6 IP, 7 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 8 K
  • June 21, 2015 vs. Mets: 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K
  • June 19, 2016 at Mets: 9 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 7 K
