god i forgot what a beating a-rod is to listen to.  i mean, he always has been, but tonight is the first time i've noticed him doing something that specifically bothers me:

whenever somebody is trying to make a point by making a list, and the first two things on the list are synonyms, i stop listening.  maybe the wife has just made me more aware, because she does it all the time to try to prove shitty points.  in a 15 minute span, a-rod was talking about someone (stanton maybe?) and said, "he's smart, he's intelligent, he's..." and just now, talking about cole, "he's gotten in shape, he's fit, he's..."

just throw it on the pile i guess.

How Todd Frazier is running with one fan's Yankees hate

for future use, i refer to this as “listing at”. it’s a verb. like, “hey, please don’t list at me.”

I hear ya. You’re totally right. Couldn’t agree more.

However, saying  OU blows, Big Red sucks, the Sooners eat dicks is perfectly acceptable.

Kike Hernandez is a very underrated player.

How so? Stats don’t support. Lifetime OPS is.742. BA is .241. Hits some homers but strikes out a lot. I’ll give you good defense.

If you only watched his games against the Giants you'd think he's Ted Williams.

Stats, schmats.  He's clutch, and super versatile.  Can play basically 6-7 positions in the field well.
