Baseball-Related Things About Which I’ve Thought, Today


As there is no baseball of note to be played today, nor will there be any played tomorrow or the next day or the next, we must fill our baseball-craving minds with whatever baseball-related slurry is kicking around up top. An example of these things, a very specific David-G-Temple-related example, are as follows:

  • Base stealing
  • Prominent base stealers
  • Cocaine
  • Spreadsheets/Charts related to baseball
  • Writing creatively about baseball
  • Switching chairs, in a sad effort to hopefully enable writing creatively about baseball
  • Pete Rose
  • Transportation to Spring Training in Arizona
  • My being too fat to fit in the clothes I wore to Spring Training in Arizona last year
  • A self-imposed diet to enable me to fit in the clothes I wore to Spring Training in Arizona last year
  • County Stadium in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • The baseball-related podcast I have to re-edit due to computer issues
  • A baseball-related short story I promised to someone
  • How I haven’t written something creative about baseball in a while
  • Making a list about baseball-related things about which I’ve though, today

That’s not the worst kind, though, as they’re less likely to be subjected to cavity searches than are the more attractive ones, so this is sort of like a compliment.


This is a thing to think about… this ia real rumor… in 2014:

[Yuni] Betancourt was drawing interest from several teams, potentially even as a starter.

Also, curling. You should always think of curling.
