    Rendon is the greatest Astros mole ever... except for 2019. He still has the dugout at Reckling Field named after him.

    LOW-per-FIDO

    I have no idea, but that's how it should be pronounced.

    if he hits 45 homers and 120 ribs, he can bat .150 and strike out 300 times.

    Cool and all, but man, can y'all let the poor parents watch their kid's at bat first? She's interviewing them while the at bat is going on. I would be pissed.

    It was his 2nd AB... but was the first hit (and RBI).

    So. At a mets game in Florida this spring. The announcer called him Lopertini. It’s kinda perfect. And I’ve used it ever since.

    Lopertini, for the win.

    Fun Fact: Joey Gallo had b2b 40 HR seasons and didn't drive in 100 runs in either (never did in his career)

    I'm very cool with Loperfido hitting around .220 if almost half of those hits are homeruns.
