Bizarre! I guess once you know you're going to balk, may as well try to get away with something.

I'm surprised the batter didn't yell at or go after Verlander. The first thing I thought is he wanted to purposely plunk him and didn't care about being on the rubber.

HA! That was hilarious. Looks like he had a brain fart to me.

I like seeing him grinning. That's classic. He didn't know what the hell he was doing and realized that, everyone else did too. Mental error, I've had similar experiences putting the cereal back in the fridge.

It is a game, still, and it's a pretty funny situation. I'm glad he laugh about it all.
