Ryan Raburn loves August

And August loves Ryan Raburn.

He’s up to .319/.373/.585 with 6 homers and 17 RBI .323/.374/.636 with 8 homers and 21 RBI for the month so far. That includes the two homers he hit in the Sunday game. Ryan Raburn, you guys. Seriously.

  1. And we love Ryan Raburn! At least I do anyways!

  2. Love today’s drawing! Now let’s hope Raburn doesn’t find the remedy for success…

  3. Actually, after that game, Raburn in August has:
    .323/.374 /.636 with 8 HR and 21 RBI, in 99AB

  4. That is probably the sparkliest picture of Ryan Raburn that has ever existed.

  5. I question the flight readiness of the baseball butterflies. Anthropomorphize August all you want, Ms. Pearlstein, but don’t tell me those gossamer winged baseballs can get off the ground.

    • If baseballs can’t fly, where do homers come from? Too much science can be a dangerous & misleading thing. (Aren’t bumblebees supposed to be aerodynamically impossible? And aren’t the flowers glad no one told them?) Also, a lovely metaphor is a terrible thing to waste. Flutter on, little baseballs!

  6. so sparkly. Ryan Raburn doesn’t like pressure.
