I drink Jack Daniels while watching Jack Bauer on 24 nights.

I also drink Jack when the Jack commercial comes on during the 7th inning stretch of Orioles games.

Why do fat dudes at the gym try to lift more weights instead of toning or slimming down?

I can answer that first one, as I have a nice lil beer gut.

The simple answer is this. Lifting weights ads bulk and muscle to help undo the awkwardness of a beer belly with spaghetti arms. A beer belly with GUNS doesn't look nearly as bad. And while its probably a better idea health wise to use the cardio machines and lose the weight, then you can't sit back with a cold one and watch the ballgame when you get home.

So see, it all makes perfect sense! We can't ALL havs six pack abs AND muscles to boot. Some of us have to make a decision, and the fact is its easier to add muscle than to lose a gut.

Most people don't realize, that large pieces of coral, which have been painted brown and attached to the skull by common woodscrews, can make a child look like a deer. - Jack Handey

Oh wait! "Random Thoughts"... not Deep Thoughts.

Yes, Alyssa Milano, you can try that "come hither" look all you want...it's never going to work when you're wearing a New York Giants zip-up.

I'm spoken for, anyway...but even if I wasn't...that would just have to come off.

Well, I'll be dipped. Baseball Tonight actually used WAR as a featured statistic in one of their graphics.

I'm also tired of Baseball Tonight (hey, I could end the sentence here...) not updating their little fake ticket graphic with the team names on them...they all still say "20" on one side and "09" on the other. Hmm, I need a job, you know...I pay enough attention to detail to actually notice and could make sure things like that get corrected! Would it kill someone to do their job well? (I guess this turned into a "short rant"...oh well.

Bite thy tongue!

Alyssa Milano could roll around in pig (doo doo) and still be the most beautiful woman on the planet...

...right behind my beautiful bride, that is! ;)

:laughlol:

You must admire my team loyalty, however...remember, where there's a Giants zip-up (which is bad enough) a Yankees jersey probably isn't far away. I shuddered when contemplating it.

I switched to ESPN to catch Baseball Tonight, but the Tennessee-Alabama women's softball game was on (Tennessee just lost after mounting a furious seventh-inning comeback). I was amused when Kelly Grieve (Ben Grieve's cousin) pulled a two-run homer for the Lady Vols. One of the commentators noted that one of the things helping her was her "backside rotation."

    • I guess the O's hadn't used the cheating technology yet.        
    • Does Cashner require an MLB deal?  Colon would at least draw some press. 
    • I think that was a great win.  Indiana scored on every single trip down the floor to start the second half.  It had to be 13 times down and 13 scores.  Even when they missed, they got the offensive rebound and scored.  I don't think they even made any free throws in that stretch.....it was all made baskets. Sometimes, the other team just decides to try harder and stops missing shots and they did a great job.  This had loss written all over it, so I have to give credit to the Terps for winning a game that they should have lost....which is very rare in the Turge era. 
    • I did in fact create a spreadsheet.     As mentioned, many of the pitchers were on the BA list more than once.    So, I've sorted them into four buckets according to the highest ranking they attained. BA 1-25:  30 pitchers achieved this level, and that group averaged 12.5 rWAR.     Of the 31 pitchers I categorized as "reliable starters," from this bucket you have four of the No. 1 Studs (Kershaw, Price, Strasburg and Bumgarner), one of the Solid No. 2's (Teheran), two of the Mid-Rotation guys (Buchholz and Porcello) and eight of the Middle/Back of Rotation guys (Bailey, Anderson, Tillman, Cahill, M. Perez, Hellickson, Moore and Wheeler).    So, that's 15 of the 30 who became reliable starting pitchers by my definition.  Two of the Stud Relievers, Davis and Chapman, also came from this bucket. BA 26-50: 26 pitchers achieved this level and the group averaged 7.3 rWAR.    The group includes one No. 1 Stud (Cueto), four Solid No. 2's (Gonzalez, Carrasco, Zimmermann and Chacin), one Mid-Rotation guy (Kennedy) and three Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Jurrjens, Holland and Gibson).    Nine out of 26 became reliable starters.   Stud reliever Britton also came from this category. BA 51-75: 23 pitchers reached this level, averaging 6.1 rWAR.   They include one No. 1 Stud (Scherzer), one Solid No. 2 (Arrieta), one Mid-Rotation guy (Leake), and two Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Niese and Cashner).   5 of 23 became reliable starters. BA 76-100: 20 pitchers were in this bucket.    Only two became reliable starters: Samardzija in the Mid-Rotation category and Jonathan Niese in the Mid/Back of Rotation category. Hall and Rodriguez both fall into the second bucket for now, though it's possible they could move up in future years.
