    Random Thoughts

    If Jose Fernandez is the next Dwight Gooden, then Tony Cingrani must be the next Tom Browning.

    Joey Votto's OPS is all O and no S.

    Ryan Hannigan should write a book about pitching and leave it in each pitcher's locker.

    If the Reds had eight Joey Vottos in the lineup, it would take a long time to score a run.

    But he might finally get a decent pitch to hit.

    I'd hire Rob Dibble just to throw at fans who do the Woo.

    Joey Votto has taught me so much about re-evaluating my IT Infrastructure needs.

    "And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.

    Joey Votto gets on base more than a quarter flips heads

    Did Browning ever have a fastball like that?

    Lord no he had no fastball, Browning had a left arm and that's where the comparison ends

    Nothing wrong with BCubb's slugging percentage. Excellent, as always.

    I heard Marty and Jeff talking about how bad Hanigan was slumping as he made the last out of the inning, followed by a commercial with Hanigan in it.

    Hilarious.
