Re: Another George Grande thread
Ten Things I've learned from George Grande during the 2005 MLB Season...
10. Jim Edmonds is the best player in baseball not named "Albert Pujols".
9. Albert Pujols is the best player in baseball not named "Jim Edmonds".
8. Yadier Molina is invincible but shall hence be known as "Yada Yada Yada Molina" due to the amount of time Grande talks about him.
7. If Jason Larue makes an off-balance poor throw from his knees on a steal attempt, it's bad form. If Yada Yada Yada does it, refer to Point #3 below.
6. When the Reds and Cardinals play, George Grande will do his best to demonstrate that he knows everything there is to know about one team on the field wearing red. That's as far as I'll go.
5. Yadier Molina has two brothers who also play professional baseball. Did you know that? Well, did you??? I sure did, but I still get to hear about it at least once per ballgame...sometimes when the Reds aren't even playing the Cards. I think I heard it twice during a Pittsburgh game.
4. David Eckstein is so scrappy that scrappy ain't good enough for David Eckstein. He's super-scrappy. UBER-scrappy? No. INFI-SCRAPPY!
3. If a Reds player does something dumb, they're dumb. If a Cardinals player does something dumb, we'll soon realize it was because the player is incredibly skilled.
2. The word "dynasty" either needs to have it's definintion updated or George Grande needs to purchase a freakin' dictionary. I support the latter, but if Merriam-Webster decides to take on the former then I start talking about Billy Beane's "dynasty" team up in Oakland. I'll also go on and on about Jim Kelly's Buffalo Bills and Bill Cowher's Steelers clubs.
1. Albert Pujols is more impressive than Andruw Jones because over the past few years, Pujols has performed with really no one else in the lineup to help him out.
Note: Yes, George Grande actually said that during last night's ballgame. I can't make that stuff up.

"The single most important thing for a hitter is to get a good pitch to hit. A good hitter can hit a pitch that’s over the plate three times better than a great hitter with a ball in a tough spot.”
