a healthy dose of chaos leads to the win
All-you-can-eat crab buffet: Sam Haggerty (.220 WPA)

OTD in Ichiro: In 2002 Ichiro hit the only opposite-field home run of his career, a leadoff homer off future Mariners bullpen coach Mike Hampton. When you build a career as deep as Ichiro’s, even a slap hitter can get an oppo shot. That’s demonstrated by the fact that he was still rolling 15 years later when he made a highlight reel catch in left.
