In which Craig Kimbrel is hilarious, the Off The Bat team is grating and willfully dumb in a familiar way, and our heroes are suddenly tasked with competing for ratings with George Stephanopoulos and David Gregory.
It says a lot that Off The Bat's entire existence seemed to be building up to the Celebrities and Legends Softball Game during the All-Star break. It's unclear what purpose, if any, it serves now. Well, beyond grim existential metaphor, as usual.
In which Adam Dunn's influence on Chief Keef is revealed, Brandon Moss looks a little like a buff George Saunders, and Fat Joe displays late movement on his fastball, sort of.
As MTV2's flirtily bizarre collaboration with Major League Baseball reaches double digits, it enters its baroque/recycling-old-stuff period. Don't worry, Fat Joe is still around.
Off The Bat is now nearly ten episodes old, and still a long way from good. Instead of stressing over how and why Fat Joe still can't pronounce Yasiel Puig's name, maybe it's better to wonder how this is still on the air. The answer to that question lies in MTV2's similarly baffling existence.
