    Q&A: CJ Nitkowski and Jeff Pearlman

    Pretty funny and interesting stuff.

    ē Would you rather eat 40 nuggets of snot from the nose of Colter Bean or have to streak naked across Yankee Stadium before Game 1 of the World Series?: Tough call, one would make me throw up, the other would make 50,000 fans plus media and field staff throw up. Iíll streak.

    Re: Q&A: CJ Nitkowski and Jeff Pearlman

    That was a good read...I have emailed back and forth with CJ before and he is always fun.

    I also read a couple more articles so thanks for helping me kill my day!

    One was the article with Phil Nevin who is the manager of the Toledo Mudhens...so I go digging a bit on Phil and do you know WikiPedia does not have his time in Cincy listed in his career notes? Seriously...I hate WikiPedia and now yo know why!

    CJ Nitkowski pitched in the very first game I ever attended in 1998. He was with Houston at the time...can't remember if he started or came in in relief. I can, however, tell you that Mike Remlinger started for the Reds. Craig Biggio and Barry Larkin hit homeruns in an (I want to say) 8-1 Reds win.

    June of 1998.

    For some reason, CJ Nitkowski will always hold a small piece of my sporting heart.

    Nevin never played for the Reds.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I think Bowden tried to trade for him about 800 times, but no deal was ever consummated.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    I thought the Reds and Padres had a deal in place, but, Nevin nixed the trade?

    It was Griffey for Nevin, and Linder nixed it, I believe.
