Dreaded Headwear of Gold
Following his appearance in Tuesday’s All-Star game, Jayson Werth had the rather ignominous distinction of striking out four times last night in the first game of the second half.
Yup, he earned the infamous Golden Sombrero. Jayson, please do not do this again this season!
[Interesting tidbits: striking out 5 times is called a platinum sombrero, and if you manage to strike out 6 times, it’s called a titanium sombrero. This has only ever occurred eight times, and only in extra inning games.]
On a personal note, I seem to be having a bit of a mid-season blogging slump, and it’s going to persist at least through the next week, as we’re headed off tomorrow on a family vacation. Not much blogging opportunity there.
So for now, I’ll leave you with the latest…
