Sometimes, the existing take on a news story is so wonderful that all you can do is direct people to it and tell them: Enjoy this, because it is perfectly presented.
Such is the case with Baseball Nation's brilliant explanation — complete with video! — of what it's calling "the worst plate appearance in baseball history," and honestly, you can make an argument that it just might be true. This is a perfect marriage of hilarious writing, video clips, and a story that would be very hard to tell if you couldn't let people see it for themselves.
Absolutely perfect, right from the subhed: "Sunday afternoon, Giants reliever Santiago Casilla batted against Marlins reliever Jose Ceda, and they were both really terrible." Go over there and enjoy it.
