Trot Times for April 15, 2014

Tax Day brought rain-outs to a quarter of the league, with four games washed out around the league. There might be a metaphor in there somewhere. Now let’s get to the trots!

It was a wacky day for Pennsylvania teams, as the Braves/Phillies and Pirates/Reds games accounted for 17 home runs. Scientists have tried to explain what happened, but they were all distracted by the lunar eclipse. Let’s get to the trots!

Trot Times for April 13, 2014

Busiest day of the season so far. With a full slate of Sunday games (and apparently some nice weather around the country), hitters slugged 42 home runs throughout the majors yesterday. Thankfully, a few of them were pretty special. One special trot not included below comes from Class A West Viriginia. Second-baseman Erich Weiss, of […]

This might be my favorite article on the Tater Trot Tracker that I’ve seen as the Wall Street Cheat Sheet runs down the six slowest (non-injury) trots of the Tater Trot Tracker-era. Now let’s get to the trots!

We can blame the rain for there only being seven games around the majors on Monday, but the scarcity of home runs (only six throughout the league) will have to be blamed on something else. I suggest Miley Cyrus. Let’s get to the trots!

Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez hit two home runs apiece in their ESPN Sunday Night Baseball game against the Giants. Apparently they were angry that they had to miss the Game of Thrones premiere. Let’s get to the trots!

Captain America: Winter Soldier was pretty great, though I was a bit disappointed that Steve never gave Nationals Park a visit. Considering the number of civilian casualties in the movie, however, it was probably a good thing for the citizens of Washington, D.C. Now let’s get to the trots!

Your early leaders in the 2014 home run sweepstakes are Brandon Belt and Alejandro de Aza, who each hit their third home runs of the young season on Thursday. It’s all playing out just as everyone foretold. Let’s get to the trots!
