Shot Of The Night

Shot Of The Night is Off Base Percentage's toast to a player who had an exceptionally good or bad night. There's always a reason to drink.

Remember when the Major League franchise tried to pass Omar Epps off for Wesley Snipes in Major League 2? Like Omar Epps could ever slay vampires. He's only good at diagnosing strange diseases and coaching the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wow, I derailed much quicker in this post than I usually do. The shot of the night is Crazy Legs: 1 shot of absinthe herbal liqueur, 1 shot of Jagermeister® herbal liqueur, 1/2 can of Amp® energy drink and it's in honor of Juan Pierre.

Juan Pierre hit a home run. Over the fence. On purpose.[citation needed] That was Juan Pierre's first home run in almost two years. And he was just as surprised as the rest of us...
"I was real surprised, it was a breaking ball," said the speedy leadoff man, who has 14 career homers. "I hit it good. Now guys can get off my back."

Honorable Mention: Buck Showalter
Crazy Legs Buck (just go with it, I'm grasping at straws with this shot thing) ran his consecutive winning streak with the Orioles to one in his debut. The O's beat my beloved Halos and because I'm comfortable in my manhood, I'm not afraid to admit I wept a little. Like 5 minutes worth. The win leaves the Orioles a scant 34 games back of the Yankees for first place in the AL East. Should be a good race down the stretch.
