Whatnot

1)   What if political scientists wrote the news?

2)   That big sinkhole in Guatemala can’t lick this hole’s bootheels.

3)   Women have to, uh, breast-feed men in Saudi Arabia.

4)   What happened to Turkey?

5)   Marry an Israeli, lose your citizenship.

6)   Why Bryce Harper should play outfield.  I got another reason: the Natrals #2 prospect (the #1 spot having just been abdicated by Baseball Jeebus Stephen Strasburg and filled by Harper) is a catcher.

Also, Strasmas is tonight and all you chumps got lumps of coal.

    You play Harper in RF because that will fast track his bat to the club. Unusual, however, to see an OF taken first overall; Nattys would probably receive more value for him over the long-term playing him at his natural position. Equally unusual to see a 17 year old hit a ball 502 feet at Tropicana though:

    Go Bills.

      “94 catchers in Major League history have accumulated at least 3,000 plate appearances. You know how many have posted a career OPS over .900? One – Mike Piazza. Okay, fine, a career .900 OPS is a pretty high bar (63 players at other positions have done it, but it’s still a pretty impressive feat), so lets lower it to .800 – 11 catchers in Major League history have a career OPS over .800 (and at least 3,000 PA), but four of those are active and haven’t had their numbers suppressed by end of career decline yet. Another one of those, Mickey Tettleton, spent 20 percent of his major league career playing positions other than catcher.”

      Zero catchers have had 10,000 plate appearances. The Natrals drafted him as a hitter. ‘Nuff said.
