    Working my way back into the lineup after a sterling performance by WebScorpion.

    Being in first place is like eating in the Diamond Club, you just try to act you like you belong there.

    Is David Ross the new Chris Denorfia?

    Or just his Robin?

    The only thing that can stop this team is if Major League Baseball cancels the season because it ran out of players.

    Drug testing is like the restrictor plate in NASCAR.

    There's something pure about pushing yourself as far as you can.

    Except for the dangers and illegality and stuff.

    And the 7-foot, 300-pound shortstop who hits .400.

    There's something freakish about how much Reds fans love their general manager.

    It's like dude, whatever, sign a couple more catchers if you want.

    Would Marty Brennaman and George Grande cancel each other out like matter and anti-matter?

    It's a good thing Marty's father didn't have friends name Sherm and Mo.

    Ryan Freel should have been one of those plastic players on little pegs in the electric football game that would go around in circles and bang into the walls.

    If God is on our side, is he old-school or SABR?

    Back just in time not to get Wally Pipped - well done!

    Oh, and, of course, God would be old-school with a little dose of SABR.

    Excellent! You totally Rawk!

    I think the Freel version of the electric football player would keep going even when you shot off the vibrating field. HA!

    and God is omniscient and omnipresent, so she/he's on both team's sides and he/she's both old-school and SABR!

    Welcome back from the DL, you didn't miss a step.

    I could never get the kicker to kick that little felt football straight.

    Good job BCubb

    He's definitely old school. It took him 6 days to create the universe. After indepth analysis and data collection, SABR translates that to a sub-800 OPS. What drove it down is that God relied too heavily on the sacrifice.... and Moses was great a striking rocks and getting water, but couldn't bunt worth a darn.

    Not to hijack this thread.. but you have the wrong episode, GAC. It was this:


    Lazarus Fighting Lazarus

    The Alternative Factor:
    While orbiting what should be a dead planet, the U.S.S. Enterprise experiences a moment of "nonexistence." Starfleet Command fears an enemy invasion and orders Kirk to find out what caused the stellar system disturbance.

    On the planet below, Kirk finds a man called Lazarus, who tells Kirk that the effect was caused by his enemy. Lazarus has been chasing him with the aid of a time/space craft and wants the Enterprise's dilithium crystals to continue his search. The captain refuses.

    When Kirk takes Lazarus aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise, it becomes apparent that there is something strange about their visitor. He has incredible mood swings, one minute sane and rational, the next exhibiting violent rage. He also has a bloody head wound that disappears, then reappears moments later.

    Lazarus manages to steal the ship's dilithium and return to the planet. Kirk follows and discovers that Lazarus is two people one sane and one a madman, with one from an anti-matter universe. The sane Lazarus informs Kirk that the beings can only appear in either universe one at a time. Should both men be in the same place at the same time, both universes would be destroyed. Kirk helps the sane Lazarus trap his counterpart in an intermediate time corridor where they can hurt neither the matter nor anti-matter universe, but where the two will be trapped in fight until the end of time.
