You’re a difference maker all right…

What did I say about all the pitches being straight as a string? I used to visit a place where they had pitching machines and the balls wern’t this straight. There was a shed behind one of the cages and I hit one ball so hard it went through the protective net behind the cage and bounced off the roof of the shed. I felt like I hit the batting cage jackpot. Try that at home folks!

It was 97 out here yesterday, and Bader is sporting long sleeves. Must be afraid of mosquitos or skin cancer, one or the other. What a royal pain in the ass to have in your dugout. I’ll take the mosquitos over this mope.

Feel free to add on-  I’m heading to my local pool for a swim. Happy holiday!



  1. I hear ya, Rob. Upon learning that I am a transplanted Midwesterner, people in the South would ask me what I thought of the heat. The fact of the matter was that it gets just as hot and humid up there as it does down here. It just doesn’t last as long. Oh, and up there, at least when I lived there, there are (or were) many buildings that didn’t have A/C or, at best one room might have a window unit.

    Good times: tossing and turning in front of an open window stuffed with a box fan turned on high; 80 degrees F, 98% humidity.

  3. Sure Bader. Just tell the guy taking your spot he sucks. I’m sure Gil appointed you captain to start the season. What a couple of turds in a toilet!

  4. Now that Del is in prison, it’s probably harder for Gil to flush Barely Bader. But I’m having trouble seeing how this bench-toxic jerk has stayed on the team for three years.

  5. Panel 3 looks like it could be used any time anyone says anything to Barry Bader — and the rest of the team starts cackling with derisive laughter.
    “Hey Bader — how’s your alky father doing, hope he hasn’t dropped the soap in the shower!” (cut to Panel 3 cackling)
    “Hey Bader — how’d you like a Boo Radley Memorial Mini-Library smacked across your forehead?” (cut to Panel 3 cackling)
    and so on….

  6. 1. What the hell kind of interview is this?

    2. Bitch, this is a three year varsity letterman, a plus fielder at a critical position and a mainstay in the top third of the batting order you’re popping off to… HE IS THE VERY DEFINITION OF “DIFFERENCE MAKER”… Maybe you need to stay in your fucking Lane and leave this journalism racket to us pros…

  7. 3. Once again I am forced to ask just why the hell Barry didn’t just transfer 2 years ago instead of staying at a school where classmates treat him as a parish, his coaches hate and undervalue him, everyone invades his privacy, hoes wanna belittle him in the name of “journalism” and wannabe badasses twice his size wanna fight him…

    I mean damn, surely there is another school in conference who would appreciate him, right?? You’d have thought Barry would be thirsting for the chance to transfer crosstown just so he could jam it up Gilberto’s ass…

  8. Before I go any further, I would like to pause to remember our Veterans on Memorial Day. Without their sacrifices and commitment, we would not enjoy the freedoms that make America the greatest country on the planet. Thank you, Veterans. We salute you.
    I would like to remember my Grandfather, Leonard Thomas Hardin, a World War I Veteran, a cook in the U. S. Army, and my Step-Father, Gabriel Feltner, Junior, a World War II Veteran, who served in the U. S. Navy aboard the USS Merryvale and saw combat action in the Pacific Theater.
    I salute you, Gentlemen, and praise you from the bottom of my heart. I love you both. Lest We Forget.

  9. Do we REALLY have to subject ourselves to ANOTHER pet project from Moose that is clearly falling by the wayside with no light at the end of the tunnel? He couldn’t hit that pitch with a fraternity paddle at the rate he’s going. Surely his hand-eye coordination is several points above what we’re seeing in P1. You really can’t blame the hair, it’s in back of him. You wouldn’t think he has any Jack Daniels in his gym bag. If he can’t hit a pitch that seems like it’s coming from a T-Ball pitching machine, I think we should abort this Launch Angle project for good.
    And it looks like Dr. Phibes’ henchman(P3) have gone out for the team again this year. They were academically ineligible the year before.

  10. […] He just changed his launch angle and he’s hit four home runs in five games and he strikes out once in a while. His home run trot is so good that he has to ask his teammates if he needs to slow it down a […]
