RoboCop Pitch Bad, But Better Than Tigers Bullpen Or 50 Cent

The RoboCop pitch. Let’s hope it gets more attention than the 50 Cent pitch. As opening pitches go, the off-target eefus lobbed by rapper 50 Cent – which was mashed up into a viral video featuring Vladimir Guerrero– was quite possibly the worst in MLB history. RoboCop, it would appear, can’t pitch much better.

To his credit, RoboCop, who was introduced as “the most iconic crime fighter in Detroit history…RoboCop,” at least got the ball over the plate. The fact that it hit in front of the plate and rolled over still qualifies him as better than 50 Cent. For that matter, if you’ve followed the Tigers lately, it probably qualifies him as better than most of the Tigers’ bullpen.

Notice, we did NOT say that 50 Cent is better than most of the Tigers’ bullpen. They’re bad, but not that bad. Better than Phil Coke, maybe.
