All right, I know what you’re saying. The Big Tilde did nothing to facilitate the Tigers’ 16-0 ass hammering of the New York Yankees. That’s simply not true. His 1-for-4 day with two walks and a run scored is completely substandard, and he’s the only Tigers starter who didn’t knock in a run.
Well, that’s not true. Sean Casey didn’t have an RBI either. But he did have a triple, and when he ran the bases it sounded something like this. But you choose to ignore that simple fact.
What Ordoñez was doing, in his MVP ways, was allowing other athletes to rack up statistics, much to the delight of their respective fantasy owners. TBT is aware that they will need his mystical swing later on in the pennant run. He knew that. You guys didn’t.
That’s the power of Tildus Maximus.
