Jeff Sullivan over at the mother site took some time recently to examine the effortless home run swings of Chris Davis. Davis was at it again today, with such a breezy dong-piece, it deserves some extra attention.

    I’ve been alone with you inside my mind
    And in my dreams I’ve hit you out a thousand times
    I sometimes see you pass outside the zone
    Hello, is it me you’re looking for?

    I can see it in your spin
    I can see it in your hide
    You’re all I’ve ever wanted, and my stance is open wide
    ‘Cause I know just when to swing
    And I know just what to do
    And I want to hit you so far, I love you

    Wait, are the lyrics “breezy” or “easy” like sunday morning? Because neither make sense.

      At first, I’d Zoom or Sail On right by this post without further comment. Still, I feel compelled to ask you a question: Are You Happy with your ignorance of the fine stylings of Mr. Lionel Richie? Truly, the Sweet Love of his music fills me with joy; I Feel Sanctified by it, and it gives me such tremendous energy I could go Dancing on the Ceiling. It would be Easy to sing his praises All Night Long, but I must stop now to go running, Running With The Night, that is.
