    I've always thought Keanu Reeves could play Homer pretty well.

    Loved the article. This stuck out for me. :O)

    Just for fun, we did an Internet search, and George Bell, Pedro Guerrero, Ken Griffey Jr., Adam Dunn, Greg Vaughn, Matt Williams, Jose Canseco and Albert Pujols are among the hitters through the years who have uttered the phrase, "I get paid to drive in runs." Joe Morgan once told the story of how he stole home and was lying at home plate, and teammate Tony Perez admonished him: "Don't ever do that again. I get paid to drive in runs. Next time, I'll swing."
    Gotta love doggie!

    This too.

    "I don't understand why people say he's not doing this or that," Bruce said. "He's [slugged] .600 before. If you're hitting doubles and homers, that's still doing plenty of damage. You don't have to hit 40 or 50 homers to be a power hitter. Being efficient and making the best of your at-bats and taking everything you get is what makes a player good. Joey's good. Brandon Phillips is good. Choo is good. There's not one cookie-cutter way of being good."

    If the actor Everett McGill were younger, he'd get my vote as Homer.

    If there's need of a Scott Rolen, go get Kevin Spacey.

    I think, give Keanu some long hair, and he could pass as Lincecum. He might not look much like Big Time Timmy Jim, but the.... weediness is there

    Interesting that Votto and Choo have become close. Not surprising though, since the article points out that they approach hitting similarly.

    The big question is, do we refer to these two as Chotto or VoChoo?

    My vote is for Chotto
