    2012 was further proof that baseball is more fun when the hotdogs are more expensive.

    From Joey Votto's late season offense, I learned that healthy knees are essential for hitting the longball.

    The league needs to figure out how to deal with those pesky wildcard round scheduling issues that make "home teams" fly across the country to claim their rightful advantage for a 162-game regular season.

    In other news, it seems like the regular season matters less and less for whether or not a team actually wins anything.

    I told my wife the Reds had signed Broxton to close and are moving Chapman to starter. She said, "oh no, that's no fun".

    Chapman as a closer is something the very casual fan can enjoy. She loves the Ks and the flames out of the stacks and the crowd roaring. A great capstone to a win.

    So long as they were made with no animal products (no butter, no real cream, no honey, etc) they COULD be vegan. Just probably not very good.

    Oreos, btw, are vegan.

    Are they vegan, though? That's what's important right now!

    My little brother was conceived in a 1973 Chevy Vega, so technically he's a vegan.
