When the color guy tells me that Garcia is hitting .343 against left-handed pitching in extra innings with men on second and third, I feel he's talking to someone else, 'cause I don't care."

Try putting it on SAP! That's what they are.

Don't want to offend our over-paid, over-pampered prima donnas, so let's give them some feel good, bogus statistics At least they'll think they're in the same league as the legends of baseball. Todd's got a one-game hitting streak...he's on a tear.

These guys don't even have great nicknames:

.....Then.....

Hammerin' Hank, the Bruiser, Joltin' Joe, Stan (The Man), Scooter, Say-Hey, "The Whip", Larrupin' Lou, Big Klu, King-Kong Keller.

Some of the legends are so great they even had more than one nickname.

Yogi Berra and Bill Dickey had nicknumbers, both retired #8.

.....Now.....

"Sweet" Lou, "Chipper", Bubba, Trott...with names like these,they don't run bases. They prance.

Pitch count, complete game..what's that?

Ya' tweaked again, rs.
