Vin Scully and Troyfromwestvirginia on Matt Kemp

I recently came across two great YouTube videos – one with Vin Scully giving the play-by-play of the Matt Kemp vs. Yorvit Torrealba (a fight that I missed due to a family event) and another with our old friend TroyFromWestVirginia who decided to film 2.5 minutes of himself impersonating Matt Kemp sitting in the dugout with nothing to do. I’m not sure where he comes up with this stuff, but I’ll have to give the nod to ol’ Vin for his interpretation of the fight.

Matt and Yorvit go at it in Denver

TroyFromWestVirginia “ridin’ the pine” as Matt Kemp

The Legend of Joe Beimel as Told by TroyfromWestVirginia

Genius. Pure Genius.

Thanks to the L.A. Daily News and Los Angeles Times’ Dodger blogs for bringing this to our attention. Here is a guy, pacing around in his basement with a 7 foot ceiling wearing baseball pants that are 4 inches too long, reciting the Gospel of Joe Beimel according to TroyfromWestVirginia. Just when you think he’s run out of steam, he is back for more commentary that makes you spit out your drink. The best seven and a half minutes of YouTube out there right now.

Never just Joe. Never just Beimel. ALWAYS Joe Beimel.
