Funny story for spring training

So Taylor Tankersley was throwing a live batting practice session to Brett Carroll. Tank was telling his catcher, Brad Davis, which pitches were coming so he would know. By flipping his glove one way, it meant a fastball. By flipping it the other way, it was his slider. Obviously Brett Carroll knew what pitches were coming so he started cheating a bit and hit a few to the warning track. Tank decided to tell Brad Davis a fastball was coming, but instead he threw his slider. Thinking he was sitting dead on a fastball, Brett Carroll swung as hard as he could only to fall flat on his face when the ball finally turned over and dipped towards his ankles.

 

Not the funniest of stories, and it was better being there, but I figure some of your would appreciate the shenanigans going on at camp today.

I heard/saw that too. Too funny. Also, I remember Tank saying something about a do-over pitch out or something because it wasnt right. Oh and I over heard Stokes talking to Anibal. Stokes commented on how Anibals pitches were really good and unhittable.
