Your Chris Bootcheck/Blaine Hardy/Jose Alvarez first month update sees a little bit of everything

The slashes in the title are out of control, but we’ll find a catchier title later. Now is about catching up with our current and former baseball winners of the James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending). We haven’t seen these fellas in about a month due to this site’s infatuation with the Red […]

Your Jose Alvarez/Chris Bootcheck Update breaks news

In two weeks this update will be half as long. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders played their final game on Monday. Chris Bootcheck’s season is over. It ended well.  In his final two starts, Bootcheck combined to pitch 12.1 innings, allowing three earned runs, striking out eight, walking two, and earning a win in his final game. […]

Your Jose Alvarez/Chris Bootcheck update misses out…again

I’d been waiting for this update since May. Back then, Scranton Wilkes-Barre visited Toledo. Baseball’s only two James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsored pending) winners were in the same stadium, but their pitching schedules didn’t overlap. The world was robbed of the biggest one-on-one clash since Cam’ron faced David Arquette in Rock N’ Jock […]

Your bi-weekly Jose Alvarez/Chris Bootcheck update: The pitching matchup for the ages that didn’t happen

As May neared its midpoint, we knew the series and pitching matchup we’ve all been hoping for was approaching. No, not Tigers vs. Rangers and Justin Verlander vs. Yu Darvish. I’m talking about Jose Alvarez’s Toledo Mud Hens facing Chris Bootcheck’s Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders. But the matchup of mound monsters didn’t happen. Jose Alvarez continued […]

The mysteries behind Jose Alvarez, the International Pitcher of Mystery, are slowly revealing themselves. How he works, isn’t. Two weeks ago we were left with to question whether Alvarez had conned us into thinking he was good pitcher and giving him the third most prestigious award on the internet. After these two weeks, we found […]

Your bi-weekly Jose Alvarez Update: As the Detroit Tigers begin, it begins

It’s Opening Day. Get Excited! After today, there’s only 161 games left in the playoff stretch. This Tigers-Twins game could have some serious Wildcard implications. Yet, the Tigers’ most dangerous weapon remains in the minors. Your James Mungro Memorial Award sponsored by (sponsor pending) winner, Jose Alvarez, has been banished to AAA, a.k.a ‘Where JMMA […]

Your bi-weekly Bootcheck update’s plan is working

I’ve created monster. Two weeks ago, I called on you, my beloved Hustlers to vote for Chris Bootcheck for the AAA All-star game, simply to reward the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (the sponsorship is still open people) for making mashed potatoes of the International League. You didn’t disappoint. Bootcheck leads not just relievers […]
