You know the "Lost Decade" is long since gone when one of our biggest concerns at the moment is how many pastries our closer ate the other night.

I'm guessing the problem yesterday was that Chapman didn't eat enough. Chapman ate the other 82 before tonight's game. Donuts = Strength
"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
The Babe used to eat several hot dogs in between innings. I think one game he had at least 20.
The pastry thing is weird though. If you consume a ton of sugar, you tend to crash as the sugar leaves your body. I've eaten a bunch of donuts before, and you feel great for about an hour, then you feel like taking a nap. I certainly wouldn't recommend that an athlete eat a bunch of sweets hours before a game. They already drink enough Gatorade.
Heck, I thought it looked like he was *asleep* in the bullpen yesterday....

"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
