best baseball player

Trump on the Media: Baseball edition

Trump (running for office): “I am the best baseball player ever. I will be the best baseball player ever. Criticisms are for losers. Everyone else is a baby.”

Media/experts: “You realize that baseball is a game that involves a hard, round object being thrown in the general vicinity of your head at extremely high rates of speed, right? And that there are other baseball players who have been playing the game for decades, refining their skills at, you know, baseball?”

Trump (in office): I can’t believe they’re throwing hard, round objects in the general vicinity of my head at extremely high rates of speed! Totally unfair. Fake baseball!”

because all characters in the show have something good to offer 

goku: literally the purest cinnamon roll in the world. always ready to sacrifice his life for those he loves. and he loves pretty much everyone. refers to himself as “daddy” when talking to his son. always believes there’s something good in everyone, no matter how cruel people continuously proven they can be. is always smiling. is a bathroom singer. stayed in other world because he truly believed he was the reason for causing earth so much trouble. dumb as fuck but also can be disturbingly smart sometimes? how does that man even work. doodles on his grocery list. 

chichi: most dedicated mother you will always know. comprehensive and supportive wife. married an alien man, with needs and priorities so different from hers but still managed to not only understand goku’s needs but also fully support him even when she couldn’t understand his motivations. raised a child alone and would do it again. is a skilled fighter and trained her youngest son. determined woman who loves her family above everything. literally the most loving human being on earth but dude don’t mess with her. 

vegeta: where do I even fucking start. best character development of all times. fucked up a billion times but made up for it in the end. learned how to love, and do you have any idea how hard that can be for someone who grew up without even knowing the concept of love? most obstinate person you will ever heard of. fought and defeated his strongest enemy: himself. never gives up no matter what, truly an inspiration to everyone else. has no chill whatsoever but makes visible effort to control his temper for the sake of his family and friends (speaking exclusively about Super here). “mondo cool™”. also has a great ass.

bulma: literally a fucking goddess. there’s no limit for her intelligence and she knows how brilliant she is. has no time for anyone’s bullshit and will fucking run over anyone who stands in her way. slapped a fucking god of destruction in the face and would probably do it again. raised a kid alone. wholeheartedly forgave vegeta for all his bullshit and dude, that’s truly something else. fashionable bitch no matter in what situation. kinda fearless and reckless. party like a queen.

frieza: “you’re certainly on the ball today, Captain Ginyu. If you were a dog, I’d scratch your belly. If you were a cat, I’d give you warm milk until you started to purr. But since you’re neither of these, I’ll just say thanks for a job well done.”


as I said, they all have something to offer and I’m particularly grateful for frieza’s contribution. 

"You're a hero, Ranger Rick."

“lucaya prompt…. Lucas saves Maya from being hit by a car and lands in the hospital. Maya is frickin PISSED but also extremely guilty, especially when Lucas’ mom arrives at the hospital sorry to be so specific ^^;”

I’m not sure how I did on the angry part, but I really hope you like it and thank you for submitting!

—-

If Maya could go back and change everything, she would. She wouldn’t have suggested they go walk around the city, she wouldn’t have given the idea to get them food from the truck across the street, and she wouldn’t have asked Lucas to go with her.

They weren’t even close to anywhere busy, they hadn’t seen many cars besides the occasional taxi.

The gang had gone to an art museum, because it was Maya’s day to pick the activity, and she felt particularly inspired that morning.

But of course, because these 5 can’t do anything without something happening, they got kicked of the place.

It started when Farkle got angry at Zay for talking too loudly, to save you the details, Zay ended up almost breaking a priceless artifact and they were forced to leave with a one year ban placed on them.

“I’m hungry.” Riley said.

Maya kicked a rock with her foot as she trailed along the New York sidewalk.

“How about we stop at this food truck?” She pointed at the black and gray vehicle.

“Sounds good to me.” Farkle agreed.

“So 4 hot dogs, and then a Philly Cheese steak for Ranger Rick?” Maya asked, turning to face the whole group.

“How’d you know?” Lucas looked at the blonde quizzically.

“You eat those on Saturdays, to help you build for baseball practice on Sundays. I’ve know you for 4 years Huckleberry, keep up.” She smirked.

“I’ll come with you, to help you carry it.” He offered, and they walked towards the crosswalk.

Maya swore she looked both ways.

She swore that there wasn’t a single car in sight, so she started crossing.

She would’ve heard the engine too late, if it hadn’t been for Lucas yelling her name loudly.

Time froze instantly. It was like Maya’s feet were super glued to the road, she felt the force, and she felt her body hit the ground.

But when Maya opened her eyes, she was fine, and there was no car above her.

The vehicle had tried to screech to a halt, but it was too late, the yellow cab hit Lucas and he tumbled to the ground.

“Call 911!” Was the last thing Lucas heard before he slipped into a darkness.

***

The ambulance arrived quickly.

Maya sat there in the ambulance with him, since she needed to be looked at too, but not bad enough that she needed her own.

She felt the drops pour out and down her face, landing on the railing of his mobile bed.

She grabbed his hand.

“I’m sorry, I’m so damn sorry Lucas.”

**

So now here she was, getting her head bandaged.

She had a few minor cuts, and some pretty nasty bruises, but other than that she was perfectly fine.

The nurse told her with a smile that, “If that handsome boy hadn’t have pushed you out of the way, there’s a high chance you could’ve died.”

Everyone was here.

Shawn, Katy, Cory, Topanga, Riley, Maya, Zay, Farkle, but one person was missing.

“I’m here! I’m here, is he ok?” His mom came rushing in as fast as he could.

Riley stood up.

“We don’t know yet.” She informed her glumly.

“What happened?”

“Um, we were hungry so Maya and Lucas went to go get some food from this food truck across the street. A car came quickly around the corner and Maya didn’t see it. Lucas shoved her out of the way and got hit instead. The nurses say if he hadn’t, Maya might’ve died.” Farkle explained, in perfect detail.

Maya let a tear stream down her face and felt more guilty than she’d ever felt.

“Oh thank God you’re ok, Pancakes.”

After Lucas explained his only comeback to Maya’s nicknames to his mom, she had taken a liking to calling her Pancakes. Since Maya liked Lucas’s mom so much, she didn’t mind it too bad.

“You don’t hate me for injuring your son?” The blonde asked her, stunned.

“Hate you? I could never. Knowing my son, he would’ve felt even worse than he does now if he hadn’t pushed you out of the way. You could’ve died, and I’m sure he’ll be okay, especially if he knows you’re okay. I’m glad you’re still here with us.”

Maya just hugged her for what felt like ages.

“My boy, he cares about you a lot you know. He sure does talk about you a lot, like the way he used to talk about Riley when they dated.”

Maya was shocked.

“Lucas?”

“Yeah. That kid never shuts up. Maya this, Maya that.”

Maya didn’t say anything else, just processed the information.

“Thank you, for being here and not blaming me.”

“Anything for my favorite short stack.”

**

Another hour passed, and Lucas was still asleep.

But then again, so was everyone else.

Katy and Shawn were snuggled up on a couch, Topanga was propped up on Cory’s shoulder, and Lucas’s mom had finally given up on pacing around.

It was just Maya, Riley, Farkle, and Zay.

“I can’t believe he did that.” Maya said.

“I can, he cares about you Maya.” Farkle said.

“He’s still stupid for pushing me out of the way. I should be in the hospital bed right now.”

“Maya, he did what he did for a reason. And I think your moral compass has a pretty good sense of reasoning.” Zay piped up.

“I heard a doctor passing by say that Lucas will be ok, but he broke his leg. Can’t play baseball for a whole 6 months.” Farkle added.

“Oh my god, now I feel worse.” Maya groaned.

“Hey, 6 months is right before baseball starts, he’ll still get to play around he end of the season.” Riley tried cheering up her best friend.

“Yeah, but will he still be as good? Did I screw up our baseball teams best sophomore player?”

“Have you even met Lucas? Mr. Perfect? He’ll be ok, I promise on my life.” Zay said.

“Hey Farkle?” Maya asked, and the genius looked at her.

“What doctor did you hear talking about Lucas?”

There was a pause.

“Okay so maybe Zay and I went back there ourselves.”

Maya smiled for the first time in hours.

**

“He’s awake.”

A doctor spoke from the waiting room door.

Every stood up quickly out of their seats.

“You can see him one person at a time, he’s still a little groggy, though.” The doctor informed the group.

“Maya, you should go first.” Lucas’s mom said.

“You sure?” Maya looked at everyone else, who nodded in agreement.

She took a deep breath and followed the man down a long, narrow, hallway.

The walls felt as they were closing in when she saw ‘Friar’ written on the dry erase board outside hospital room 426.

He looked surprisingly well, considering he had been hit by a car four hours earlier.

“Maya, is that you?” A strained voice whimpered from the bed.

Maya winced at the pitiful sound of his voice.

“It’s me, Sundance.” She tried her best to smile.

“Are you alright? I pushed you kind of hard.” He asked, genuinely concerned.

“Lucas, you saved my life! The important question here is, are you alright?”

The nervous blonde carefully sat in the chair next to his bed.

“Maya,” he paused, “Are you ok?”

“I’m perfectly fine Huckleberry, compared to you. Just a few scratches and bruises.”

“I’m glad you’re safe.” He smiled.

Silence washed over the room.

“Thank you.” Maya said suddenly.

“It was nothing.” He attempted to shrug, but grimaced in pain.

“You saved my life. I might be dead if you hadn’t have been with me! You’re a hero, Ranger Rick.”

“I’m not a hero. I just care about you that much.”

“Good, cause you’re also an idiot. What were you thinking? You can’t even play baseball for a while.” Maya ranted.

“You’re worth much more to me than baseball, Hart.”

Maya’s faced softened, they smiled at each other, and she grabbed Lucas’s hand.

“I have a pen, can I sign it?” Maya referred to the olive green colored cast on his leg.

“I would be honored.” He joked, winking at her and pulling his imaginary hat down as best he could, referencing their game.

“Is my mom here?” Lucas asked as Maya’s hand pushed against his cast while she wrote.

“Yeah. She’s alright though, she’s much calmer than when we got here.”

“Good. Let’s hope she doesn’t kill me for stepping out in front of a car.” The boy smiled, but was also slightly worried.

Maya thought back to her and his mom’s conversation.

“I think she’ll be alright.” She smirked.

**

That night, Lucas sat on his bed.

He remembered he never read what Maya wrote on his cast.

He looked over the other signatures and then he found the Blonde Beauty’s.

'Thanks for caring, you’re a hero Ranger Rick. -xo Maya Hart’

If Lucas could go back, back to this morning when he got a text from Maya telling him she was outside and ready to go, he wouldn’t dream of changing a single thing.

Captains

In my Daiya post about Act II chapter 26, I commented how captain-like Kanemaru and Miyuki were. It makes me think of the possible future captain (and vice captains) once the third years retire. There’s still Kantou tournament, then Summer qualifiers and Summer Koshien, so it’s still far away to make any predictions. I think all of us want Seidou to win all of them (ehem, Sawamura takes them by storm with Miyuki). But it’s still fun to guess who might it be. I missed speculating for Miyuki since I came late to the fandom.

First, before we start discussing who are the candidates and who might be best for the position. Let’s take a look at the current and former captains of Seidou, shall we?

Exhibit A: Yuuki Tetsuya. 

Yuuki doesn’t have much expression, except when he is particularly fired up, almost similar to Furuya if you think about it. He rarely speaks, quiet and reserved. He is not good in shougi, so he doesn’t have much strategic skills, but persistent despite his constant defeat. This is the trait that makes him grow the most from the badly-skilled first year to best batter and first baseman. He often responds to conversation not connected to the topic (at least to us, it might mean something to him), possibly also because he often misses subtler cues. But at the same time, Yuuki is a reassuring and reliable presence on the the field, especially when he’s stepping out to bat fourth. He never fails to answer his teammates’ trust. He is a charismatic.  By the time we know him, he is the strong and ideal leader.

Exhibit B: Miyuki Kazuya. 

Meanwhile, Miyuki has more expression and speaks more than Yuuki, but rarely truly honest, or not followed by some sort of smart remark and shit-eating grin. He is eloquent when it comes to baseball-related topics, but not so much outside it. Obviously a brilliant strategist and skilled, if not the best baseball player of the team. On the field, he is a reliable presence, no one questions his leads or his ability.  So much that they unconsciously take him for granted as seen through Shirasu’s thoughts of him. Regardless, off the field, teammates rarely spend time willingly with him aside some exceptions, though the number grows as he becomes captain. Last we see him, he is still awkward with his captaincy, Sawamura and Kuramochi not helping (though I cannot help but snicker how they casually bully their captain). In comparison to Yuuki, he has charisma only on the field.  Otherwise he has his shining moments when he knows what he wants and what to say (his speeches for being hungry for victory, to win the Fall tournament to keep the coach from leaving, etc.). Still has room to grow to be as good as Yuuki in his own way, since he’s sharper when it comes to people. 

So, seeing the two Seidou captains, social skills are not the main consideration since neither are particularly expressive or communicative. However, both of them are reliable presence on the field and strong players in their own right. This is consistent with what Coach Kataoka said to Yuuki to lead the team by his performance. Captains are expected to lead with his actions, not his words. They are expected to inspire the team on the field.

Now, it’s important to see how the position of a captain is perceived, mainly by the coach who has the final say in the appointment, in this case, Coach Kataoka. He has clearly stated his expectation of his captain to Yuuki, which most likely doesn’t change as he chooses Miyuki as the next captain. However, Coach Kataoka seems to bundle the role of captain with clean up, because he still gives the position to Miyuki despite being aware the additional duty and responsibility it will give Miyuki who is already main catcher to the team. Thus, I surmise that if the Ace is the leader that inspires the team during defense, Cleanup is the leader that inspires the team during offense. That’s why it also has to be the captain, at least for Coach Kataoka. Coach Kunitomo from Inashiro emphasizes captain as someone who can unite the team, so it’s not necessarily by skill or performance, but is possible by sheer power of character too, because as the Ace, Narumiya should fit the bill if there’s no one else instead of choosing Fukui. Harada and Yeung are the only player I can recall having multiple roles (captain catcher cleanup and cleanup ace respectively), so mostly the roles of captain and cleanup and ace are distributed to different players, and interestingly, no Aces as captains either, except for Sawamura during middle school.

So when we consider the candidates for the next captain, we are likely to need to consider the next cleanup batter. Now, let’s look at the possible candidates for the next captain.   

Right now, the most likely candidates are all the second-year first-string, almost all of them regulars (Kanemaru and Sawamura are not always playing, to my recollection). This makes the five second-years: Sawamura, Kominato, Furuya, Kanemaru and Toujou. However, if the captain is expected to be someone to lead through his performance, Kanemaru is actually the least likely candidate. Both Sawamura and Furuya has shown reliable performance as pitchers and Kominato (let’s change to Haruichi shall we?) and Toujou as batters. But if we consider captains as cleanups, then Sawamura as he is, is out of the running, leaving Haruichi, Toujou and Furuya.

As ace (or former ace), Furuya and Toujou are ahead Haruichi in terms of leadership, though Haruichi beat them both when it comes to batting statistics. Personality-wise Toujou seems to be more people person than the other two. If Furuya is still the ace for the Fall while ace and cleanup have to be separate, Furuya might also be out of running for captain position. So, right now if we list the likeliest candidates to be captain it will look like this:

  1. Haruichi. He is growing a presence as the third batter, in time he would be a presence as feared by the battery as Yuuki and Miyuki as cleanups. His performance is also consistent whether as a batter or second baseman, especially being part of Iron Wall.
  2. Toujou. He is rising to the top of the batting lineup, his batting become more reliable as he is mentioned one of the two that contributed most hits in Jingu tournament. He has been main and regular center fielder since joining the first string, but less presence on the field during defense.
  3. Furuya. He is a good batter when he makes contact, but not as consistent as the other two. However, he has been the ace since Tanba retired and performed well in Spring Koshien. He still need to be better batter to be cleanup, at least Miyuki is a consistent clutch hitter before becoming captain. Might be out of running if ace =/= captain cleanup.
  4. Sawamura. He is already a presence on the field with his strong will, the undeniable moodmaker of the team, often pulling out the team from a pinch, and looks like establishing more of a presence with his growing repertoire and better control. Sucks at batting though, but masterful in bunting. Still ways to go to be captain cleanup, but have experience as captain ace. Dark horse.
  5. Kanemaru. He looks to be good in clutch situation, but he is not always a starter that he has the least presence on the field in comparison to others. He is good in taking care of others though, and have the best presence off the field of the five. He is the most leader-like, but neither the former and current captain are before they are appointed. Right now, he is more a vice-captain material.

Sawamura is considered as a dark horse, because no one, not a single person in the team, is as inspiring as him. All the second and third years has seen him grow from from a pitcher who has only moving fastball in his repertoire (with bad control too) to a reliable pitcher they can count on in matches as well as the ace, and most of all they see him struggle with the yips. We all can see how happy the team, not only first string members, when they see Sawamura pitch to the inside. Solely for that reason, he might be considered as captain or ace, since their main duty and responsibility is to inspire. He is like Yuuki who with his constant and relentless practice set up an example for and pull up his peers. I have also the impression he is the kind of person who grow into his role. I don’t think he’s quite prepared to be captain and ace in his middle school team, but he becomes one for his friends, carrying them through practice and real matches. How much is it the Sawamura we know is the Sawamura he made himself to be the captain and ace the team needed?

It cannot be easy when you are the one most passionate about baseball and the best player in the team. How much he fight to get a team started, how often he must encourage his friends, how much he has to show them that this sport is worth it, to the point that his friends worship the ground he walk on (or close to that, they call him their hero). I want to see these qualities more. I’ve got the feeling that Sawamura discarded that part of himself in Seidou since he considered himself starting over and needing less to think of others. He allows himself to be more selfish and childish.

This post might get revised with manga development. The frontrunner might change :D

“This is the age when Japanese high school baseball is known to be the best in the world, and some scouts come from the major league to invite players to their teams. "I want to be the best baseball player, ever.” Fifteen-year-old boys leave home for the purpose of honing their abilities. I respect all players who have that determination and aspiration.“

The 2015 Mets wholeheartedly earned their spot in the World Series.

David Wright earned it by believing in the team when nobody else did. He served as a role model when no other Met could. 

Daniel Murphy earned it when he played his heart out for this team for years and he finally got to show off his MVP-caliber talent in the 2015 postseason.

Matt Harvey earned it with the fire he lit in this team and the fight he instilled in the players and fans.

Wilmer Flores earned it when he left his tears on the field showing that he has the ultimate dedication to the organization.

Jacob deGrom earned it when he stepped up in 2014 and proved that rookies are the dominant future of the team.

Noah Syndergaard earned it when he wasn’t afraid to throw 100 mph at some of the best players in baseball in only his first season.

Steven Matz earned it when he made his unforgettable debut that shook up the entire feel of this season.

Lucas Duda earned it by never getting discouraged by his slumps, allowing him to channel even more power into his hot streaks.

Yoenis Cespedes earned it when he fully committed himself to the New York Mets after being traded. He provided the spark the Mets so desperately needed to succeed.

Curtis Granderson earned it when he overcame the scrutiny from Mets fans who were skeptical of an ex-Yankee. 

Every player earned it in one way or another.

Curve Ball

Author’s Note: So here is a preview of my Derek Hale college AU! I really hope you like it! Also, a big thanks to @everybirdfellsilent for helping me with a title, as well as everything else!!!!

*******************************************************************************************

I sat on the couch in my apartment, one headphone in as I listened to my favorite playlist on YouTube, a Word document pulled up on the screen of my laptop. My roommate was moving around the place almost frantically, trying to get his things together. I watched with slight amusement as he ticked items off his internal list, mumbling to himself.

“Have you seen my Gatorade water bottle?” he asked, his voice frantic.

“Fridge. I filled it when I got up this morning and stuck it in there so it’d be somewhat cold by the time you left,” I answered, not breaking eye contact with the paper I was typing. I heard a relieved sigh as the fridge door opened and closed, and then soft lips were pressing to my cheek quickly.

“You’re the best.” I grinned a bit.

“I know.”

Once it seemed like he finally had everything stuffed into his baseball bag, he grabbed his keys and headed for the door.

“Hey,” he said, turning around to face me. I looked over at him, a slightly nervous look on his face. “You’re coming today, right?”

“Of course, Der,” I told him, offering a small smile. “Wouldn’t miss it for the world.” A grin lit up his face, dark stubble split by white bunny teeth.

“Awesome. I need my good luck charm in the stands cheering me on!” he called, starting to walk out the door. I laughed at his remark, shaking my head as I returned my focus back to the paper in front of me. Three years ago, I never would have guessed that I would be here, sharing an apartment with my best friend and star baseball player, Derek Hale.

It’s funny how things work out.

Headcanon that Eijun and the paparazzi are best buddies.

When pro baseball players Miyuki and Eijun are finally publicly dating (same verse as this lol), needless to say that the paparazzi buzzing around them doubles in number. Eijun, being the clueless country boy + ball of sunshine that he is, instead of shying away from paparazzi or getting pissed off of the lack of privacy, welcomes them with open arms lmao. Like literally, brohugs when he sees them and he knows them by name now haha

It becomes some sort of game for him. Find-the-Hidden-Paparazzi. LOL. When he spots a paparazzi stalking him and Miyuki around, he immediately walks up to them or calls after them. So whenever articles of Eijun and Miyuki come out, they always have these fab photos, some candid, and some very very not candid.

Eijun totally loves doing a lot of dumb poses (*`◇´*)

Eijun: MIYUKI DO THE KAMEN RIDER POSE WITH ME, MIYUKI CARRY ME BRIDAL STYLE, OKAY YOUR TURN MIYUKI LET ME CARRY YOU BRIDAL STYLE!! (*`◇´*)(*`◇´*)(*`◇´*)

Miyuki: oH MY GOD EIJUN NO (  ’-’ )ノ)`-’ )

He still goes with Eijun’s shenanigans though.ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

As Eijun says: “Aren’t you happy? They’re taking awesome photos of us and sending it to us for free! Actual photographers are taking photos of us for free! We should be thanking them instead!!"  (*`◇´*) (*`◇´*) (*`◇´*)

Yeah, Eijun doesn’t really get the whole paparazzi thing, but paparazzi people love Eijun. He makes their job easier after all LOL (ノ゚▽゚)ノ

Introducing Alice’s rival on the BLU team, Nancy Ann Shillace. 

Alice remembers her as not being the best baseball player as kids growing up, but is definitely surprised how a girl like her can make it competitively in Teufort Sports. (Maybe because her family is super rich)

Must be that Nancy can at least beat/hit things to a pulp when she get’s temperamental. 

Yes, Nancy can do that 90s anime ojousan laugh. If you were wondering.
