Wow. How did you come up with this? I believe you; I just want to know.

(You = Better at math than me. ... which isn't really saying much.)

I figured it wasn't as simple as 1/15, but 1/125 is still lower than I expected. Interesting. I am destined to see Homer Bailey pitch in person this season!

Intriguing story on MLB.com -- the Reds Hall of Fame is searching for the "elusive 15"-- of all of the Reds players in history, they have autographs of all of them, save this group of 15. http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...s_cin&c_id=cin

You stay away from Kelly! (She's way out of your league anyway.)

Odds of getting Bailey each time 1 in 5, or (1/5).

You just multiply (1/5)x(1/5)x(1/5) = 1/125.

You can do that with anything you know the odds of.

Sorry, just saw this.

Cowboy mentioned that Kickham had been working inside on every pitch to Frazier and that at some point Frazier would sit red on the inside and hammer one. Next pitch was a straight fastball on the inside corner that he hit 400+ feet.

Thank you sir. Yes, you are talking to a college graduate with a pretty good job who was always terrible at math (save addition and subtraction in early-elementary -- I could hold my own then, yo).

Sleep? I know I'd be under the table after that lot.

I'm a cheap drunk.

Cool, thanks. I can't handle Thom when the team hasn't been playing well.

My math skills aren't that great either, but what I just showed you is Probability 101. I encourage you to grasp the basics of figuring out simple odds and you will be able to view things in a whole new light. I enjoy thinking, "what were the odds that x,y,and z just happened?".

Is there a cut off time they call it?

A flash flood warning is in effect for Hamilton County (including Cincinnati), Ohio, as well as two counties in Kentucky.

I've got a tee time at 8:00 -- so we started early -- I've just never needed much sleep --- 42 years with the same woman - some days she can drink me under the table
