    I was gonna say something about that but felt like a bully as I typed it. Glad my feeling was warranted though.

    Grande is basically saying there's little validity to the "Moneyball" idea because the A's had Hudson, Zito and Mulder in the early 2000s.

    Uh, someone should brush George up on the A's current record. I'm pretty sure Billy Beane's model works extremely well.

    Just a strange comment from Grande. Also: Typical.

    15 pitches for Hudson through two. He doesn't walk people so it's hard to complain.just need to find the grass.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    True, true. I'm just saying that sweeping the leg historically leads to a loss. I want no part of a loss today. I want to be the one distributing the illegal kick to the face; not receiving it.

    I think what he was getting at was it probably wouldn't have mattered much what model they were using. With that starting pitching they were gonna be good. In the end tho, they haven't won a World Series in a really long time!

    In what way? It sure looked like it last night with a couple swings and he was bending over the plate with his hands on his knees before a couple pitches.

    Choking up about 4 inches until his last PA against the lefty (double). Announcers said they'd never seen anyone choke up that much since some dude that pre-dated me. Hard to drive anything when choking up that much.

    I think we're going to have to talk about Votto before long.

    Grande has already awarded last nights most important at-bat to both Panda and Posey.

    When I start to get frustrated with Jorge Gran-de, I remind myself that he's no longer the Reds' primary TV PBP announcer. And that brings a smile to my face.

    For all of Thom's faults, he blows Grande out of the water. I even greatly prefer the bland Jim Kelch over Grande.

    Going to the third scoreless.
