A real quick look at Thursday’s trots.
I don’t even know where to begin today. Bryce Harper hit three home runs in his first three at-bats. Victor Martinez nearly set a record for the slowest tater trot of all-time. Evan Longoria, Carlos Peguero, and Joc Pederson all went deep twice as well. In Minnesota, Eddie Rosario notched a home run on the […]
I’ve said it a dozen times before, but Victor Martinez is easily the most underrated slow trotter in baseball. We all know David Ortiz and Billy Butler and Hanley Ramirez, and we think we know Miguel Cabrera and Edwin Encarnacion, but Victor Martinez is rarely mentioned in discussions for the slow trot Hall of Fame.

Let’s get right to the trots!
A beautiful weekend means the ball was flying out of the yard. Let’s get right to the trots!
Not sure if you noticed, but something pretty big happened last night. It was pretty fun to see. (Well, unless you’re in the Yankees front office.) Let’s get right to the trots!

It was a fun night for home runs. Balls bouncing off centerfielder’s gloves, moonshots galore, late-inning heroics. It was a night full everything you want out of the long ball. So let’s get right to the trots!
There were only 15 home runs hit around the league on Monday. I guess the big bats decided they needed a bit of a break after the weekend. Let’s get right to the trots!
It was a full weekend, so let’s get right to the trots.
It was a slow day for home runs around the league on Thursday, with only twelve balls leaving the yard. Don’t worry, though. The baseball gods are just trying to get our guards down before the weekend. Let’s get to the trots!
The rest of Tuesday’s home runs will come later today, but first we have to take a quick look at Jose Bautista’s tater trot.
Real life got in the way of the Tater Trot Tracker this weekend, so I’m a few days behind. Those trots will be updated here soon enough. Meanwhile, don’t forget to to follow
