    You only cover my son when he's a 5-year-old baseball prodigy.

    He's barely above replacement level 5-year-old.

    The kid can barely lift the bat and wham! He connects with a fastball! The fielding doesn't look as impressive as the hitting, but the hitting. Wow. When that kid is old enough to get some bat speed, look out.

    Is "Antigua" Spanish for "Marinovich"?

    He only looks 5. I bet he's actually 19.

    (a) You roll enough tape, I'll hit a 200 mph fastball.

    (b) Not sure if I buy 85 anyway.

    (c) Not to be a net nanny whiner, but put a fucking batting helmet on that kid.

    My exact same thoughts while watching that video. All it takes is him to foul one pitch off into the side of the head.

    Good news is the Nats will have the No. 1 pick when the kid turns 18.
