    If you get to the playoffs anything can happen, but the play-in game still feels like you're Morehead State.

    Maybe Chapman can pinch-hit during his off weeks.

    I wonder how the Big Red Machine's pitchers feel about the Great Eight thing? They were better than people think.

    You can't fool me; there's no state named Morehead. Or Murray. Or Alcorn.

    If Shin-Soo Choo doesn't re-sign, you could put Derrick Robinson in left-center and Billy Hamilton in right-center and forget about it.

    Get 'em on = OBP, get 'em over = SLG, get 'em in = OPS.

    What would be the stats of a replacement closer?

    Aroldis Chapman is like a Lamborghini with a license plate that says 106 owned by a little old lady who only drives it to church who hasn't been to church in awhile.

    It's not that he has a weird swing, it's just that Todd Frazier was meant to be a cricketer.

    The notion that Frazier gets hot when it's Little League World Series time is the dopiest misuse of cause and effect in baseball.

    I know it's in the rules, but I can't get over the fact that the pitcher throws to a strike zone that doesn't exist until after he throws the ball.

    Strikeouts merely hurt your feelings, but walks will haunt.

    OBP has its limits, though: In real life you're unlikely to walk the bases loaded then walk in a run, let alone more than one.

    How did conservative small-market Cincinnati end up with a firebrand like Marty Brennaman?

    I wonder if Mat Latos' favorite commercial actor is John Moschitta Jr (Fed Ex man)

    If BP gives Votto an ornery hug after Votto whiffs and screams the f bomb....who would we get to play second?

    If Todd Coffey sprinted in to a game and tripped right before the pitcher's mound and destroyed the manager, umpire and catcher.....would he be charged with manslaughter?

    If there was a metric for greatest distance between hands and buttocks at contact point of bat and ball.....everyone would think Todd Frazier was heavily on PED's.

    I wonder how much helium it takes to get Billy Hamilton's voice like that?

    If you pinch run Hanigan for Hamilton would the effect be similar to getting Chapman's slider after his fastball?
