Here’s something that drives me absolutely nuts   ….   Baseball statistics and the baseball junkies who repeat ‘em like they mean something   -    it all started in Baltimore with Josh Hamilton’s 4 home runs   ….     Now it’s a big deal that he’s only the 16th guy to ever do that   …     but noooooooooooooooo  ….   No one leaves it there

Now I don’t know the exact stats and I don’t want to   …  but we keep hearing he’s like the 4th guy to hit 6 in a week   …  18 in the 1st 32 games   …  2nd guy to have 18 home runs and 40 rbi’s in 33 games   ….    On and on and it goes   …    AND NONE OF IT MATTERS
Here’s one   ….    Nellie Cruz is the 1st guy in major league history to hit a grand slam and then another home run the next night off 2 different pitchers in 2 different weeks of a tie game where his team lost 1 of the 2   …..
Well I think he is anyway   ….   But I don’t care   …    baseball stats are for baseball junkies   …    heavy emphasis on JUNKIES
It’s like the social media that isn’t very social   …   people who tweet are twits to me   -    not you of course   …   but everybody else  …   like say   …   anyone named Kardashian   …..      but I write this blog because it’s the only place I can vent anymore
3 minutes at 6 and 10 doesn’t give me enough time  -    whoops   ….   Gotta go   …   it’s almost time for my 3 minutes
Now go enjoy the rest of your life
