    Random Thoughts

    Todd Frazier is the definition of clutch, not choke.

    Shouldn't the warning to not throw at the batter be like ... always?

    Like don't bet on your own team, you can't assume a double play and no pepper in front of the stands?

    But I miss the days when guys like Don Drysdale knocked down guys like Frank Robinson who took it out on guys like Jim Gilliam.

    Jay Bruce's performance is as impressive and inconsistent as the Hulk's.

    If it weren't for BABIP, we'd have no luck at all.

    An Aroldis Chapman reality show would make enough money for another Aroldis Chapman.

    Reds fans haven't been this interested in a player's girlfriend since Corey Patterson.

    Brilliant. I'm in for producing that Chapman reality show. The fact that he can't speak English well just adds to the drama. Did he actually know that she was a stripper? Maybe one of the lesser networks would pick it up? Why not? The Bad Girls series has had legs. I think we're on to something.

    Re: Random Thoughts

    Here's what's bugging me...

    Why do baseball games not start at 1:00 or 7:00? It's always 1:05 or 7:10 or 7:15.

    If one inning of Aroldis looks like this, what would 9 innings of Aroldis look like?

    Why does Mesoraco always look like he's angry? He's got Ross Grimsley eyes.

    Thanks for more thought provoking thoughts BCubb!
