  1. How big is Todd’s head?

  2. I wish I had know the Yankee/Red Sox game today was of average watchability before I paid above average prices on stubhub for a ticket.

  3. Yes, that’s distressing. I’d say you had some hope, except for that the NERD scores are so clearly infallible.

  4. Intergalactic hydrogen absorbs light at certain discrete frequencies, one of which is called the Lyman alpha frequency–referred to as a “line” because it appears as a dark line amid a spectrum of colors.

    At long distances, light becomes redshifted–growing redder and redder the further it travels. Hence, the absorption line tends toward redder and redder with distance, and sources from several distances show a “forest” of lines instead of one.

    Looking forward to Redmond’s debut. He never even really got a chance in Atlanta between all the other starters ahead of him.

  5. Regarding the Headline, as Visible from the Home Page

    The headline, as visible from the website’s homepage, concludes in this wise: “Featuring the Big Todd Redmond”.

    Regarding How This Commenter Interpreted Said Headline

    This commenter interpreted said headline as a nickname for the Daily Notes’ writer’s male genitalia.

    The Aforementioned Usage, Deployed in an All-American Sentence

    “Good day, beauteous Wisconsiner lass; would you like to make acquaintance with my Todd Redmond?”

  6. Potential NotGraphs poll: which current major leaguer’s name would make the most effective euphemism for male genitalia?

  8. Grady Sizemore?

  9. And sadly, you mentioned male specifically, so I can’t effectively make use of the name Rusty Kuntz. How about Wily Mo Pena for being the most masculine ballplayer of all time?

  10. J.J. Hardy, RA Dickey, Chien-Ming Wang, Reed Johnson, Drew Stubbs

  11. This just makes me sad Randy Johnson isn’t in baseball anymore.

  12. I tried to explain Derrida once. It did not go well. There’s like, no outside, man. That’s about as far as I got.

  13. There’s Reed Johnson, but that probably conveys the wrong impression.

  15. When asked what Derrida (i.e his theories) was, I replied, “What isn’t Derrida?”

  16. You have to adjust for area. New England and New York, it’s a 10, or if you work for ESPN/MLB. Everywhere else, not so much.
