Neat Play, CF #28

Curtis Grandeson records the 2nd out in the 9th inning

Dontrelle Willis returns next week. This saves Jim Leyland from the impending Miner/Robertson decision. A decision so monumentally difficult, that it would be on par with Ray J’s heart wrenching final decision between ho #1 and ho #2 on his hit show on VH1. Willis, who is attempting to come back from an anxiety disorder, hopefully can be somewhat near what Zach Greinke has become. Greinke was on the verge of quitting baseball because of his condition. Now Greinke has an ERA of .40. This .40 ERA is to the surprise of no one who played MVP baseball 2005.

A couple good Greinke quotes:

1. I cried in bed, moaning ‘why, why did this have to happen?’” — when asked how he reacted to the news of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston breaking up.

 -This reaction seems completely rational. But, I did watch an episode of saved by the bell this afternoon. Jessie Spanno held Slater’s hand causing the studio audience to break out in hysterics.

2. There definitely will be flying cars, but whether there’ll be flying cars for most people to use, it’ll probably take a long time to straighten everything out, all the rules and hassles. It’ll take a while to figure out how to keep people from crashing into each other.” — when asked if he thought there would be flying cars in the future

-Once again, completely rational. There will definitely be a transition period in the era of flying cars. 

3. “Me. I’m a better hitter.” — when Greinke was asked by a National League scout, “Should we draft you or Scott Kazmir?” 

More Greinke quotes here. Some are pretty tremendous. http://www.shan.biz/sports/zack-greinke-the-next-emmitt-smith

While writing this, Starship Troopers has been on mute in the background.  No idea why, but somehow this has to result in good karma.

I masturbated to Starship Troopers the first time I saw it...

Grandy's catch at home in 07 (if I remember correctly) is still better than his latest fantastic catch.

Thing is, that catch is almost impossible to find.

Toasterhands, I found the catch. It's a nice compact link for you.

I think I still prefer the catch against the native americans on friday. And, if you think otherwise then you are a buffoon.

Bob, always good to hear from my readers. I watched this on TBS I think, so the decapitations and alien boobs were censored.

In the link Rod says were going to be watching this catch for the next 30 years. I hold you responsible for making sure rod is not a liar.

I have to say though, the fact that you got Toasterhands requested video so quickly is very impressive
