Monday, March 10, 2008"Doctor of Changeupology"
That's right...Reds baseball and George Grande are back!!!!
Tonight the Reds were on TV for the first time this year, and it was a nice opportunity to see some people I have been hearing about. And a nice opportunity to try to learn the names of players with super high uniform numbers before they get sent down to the minors!
More importantly, it is a nice opportunity to start watching the same 7 commercials I will watch for the entire summer!
And even morer importantly...nay...the mostest of importancy...the WONDERFUL opportunity to hear George Grande speak again! This year, I set a record by uttering my first snide/derisive statement about George Grande's commentary. It took me about 12 seconds into the pre-game to mock his laugh. I am hoping next year to break my record by at least 5 seconds.
Georgie was in mid season form tonight...but nothing was better...and it might not be topped all season...than when he said "Having Mario Soto around is like have your very own DOCTOR OF CHANGEUPOLOGY." BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!! SOOOO BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!INAWFINA@N!INASDKFN!K!!!!!!
Actually, I like George Grande well enough...by all accounts he seems like a super guy and is very well respected around MLB. I just wish he would stop talking so much. That said...I am very much looking forward to hearing him exclaim, "HE GOT IT!!!" I am also looking forward to seeing "those flashbulbs a poppin" when Griffey gets close to 600. Good times.
Anyway...about the baseball...Bailey was average, but did throw a couple real nice change-ups. But the real star was Edison Volquez, the guy we traded Josh Hamilton for. He struck out 7 in 4 impressive innings. His fastball was fast and his change-up was devastating. Apparently Johnny Cueto has an even more devastating change-up. (I would assume this is all because they have been attending classes taught by the doctor. Which doctor? The doctor of changeupology of course.
They are on TV again next Monday and I am looking forward to watching that too. The team will start to round into shape. Hopefully Cueto is pitching.
Reds baseball is back. And man did I miss my good buddy George! I think this season will be fun to write about. I will try to mention as many "Grandeisms" as possible, but I don't know if I want to write about that every night.
Cueto for President!
