Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 12, 2019

Soto has a habit of being rather flamboyant in the batter's box. He'll jump out of the way of pitches that are nowhere near him, he'll really dance around with his spikes in the dirt and, in between pitches, he'll grab his crotch while adjusting himself in a way that's tough to ignore. His actions have been dubbed the "Soto shuffle."

It was only a matter of time before a pitcher decided to respond to Juan Soto for, well, being Juan Soto.

In the top of the fifth, after forcing the 20-year-old Nationals stud to ground out, Cardinals pitcher Miles Mikolas looked over at Washington's dugout as Soto trotted over and aggressively grabbed his junk.

Oddly enough, no feelings were hurt and neither of the benches cleared in an attempt to display some false sense of machismo.

Juan Soto can power a fantasy team to a top 3 finish practically all by himself -- and he's still only 20 years old.

What a trash website.
False warnings about malware, my system's infected, trying to get me to click on links to download fixes.
A warning about Flash being out of date (it's not, I went to the actual flash website and verified) and needing to be updated. More attempts to get me to click on something to "update" my system.

Finally, running a check on the website yields "This website is attempting to install harmful software or applications to your system." Which I had already figured out, but nice to get the confirmation.

Thanks for the warning, Yav.

My grandmother was a huge baseball fan but she would shake her head when a player was "adjusting" and ask me in disgust, "Why are they always touching themselves?"
