Whoo, another one posted just in time.

Have no idea what's gotten into Tim Redding, but know that whatever it is won't last.

So I'll say this, that clack had talked about Lane almost meeting the requirements for the HR trifecta, where your game is dominated utterly and completely by your home runs, to the excusion of all other skills.

And of course he was talking about it in regard to Jason Lane.

Man, I love oddball shit like that.

I was looking more at Lane, and he is truly having a season for the ages. Few in team history have been so bad so long, and of those truly terrible, few have gone deep as much as he has.

If you love to push the numbers around like I do, not much compares to statistical freaks like Jason Lane v. 2007.

He may not be very good, but he sure is fun.
