Arguably more than any other sport, baseball is a game that embraces statistics.

Beyond career and season totals, though, there are certain numbers that are fetishized by fans.

For example, there's the distance of a long home run.

Another would be pitch velocity recorded by the radar gun.

Enter Joe Kelly.

With moves like that, no wonder the St Louis Cardinals traded him.

But we digress. The Red Sox reliever decided to unleash his fury recently against the Yankees, to the tune of an eye-popping 104mph.

As always, The Daily Player is where you'll get the rest of the story.

And just as always -- or something like that -- Fanorama is where you'll find a good deal on great stuff for the discerning sports fan. For example, check out these studly slim-fit workout shirts:

At a price that's almost as eye-popping as Kelly's heater -- $29.00 -- it's no wonder our average order is for three shirts.

They also come in red, black, and white, further evidence that our customers are into variety as much as value.

So, whether you're working on a cut fastball or simply being cut, this is the shirt for you.
