Taster’s Cherce

Ted Berg’s blog always has something for me every time I stop over. Yesterday, he posted a classic AP Photo of Hideki Irabu who was arrested for Second-Degree Awesomeness earlier this week (I don’t usually take delight in another person’s misery, even a public figure, but I’ve always felt warm-and-fuzzy for Irabu’s misadventures–he was the one true degenerate on a Yankee team filled with boy scouts).

Then came  a post about some of the craziest–nasty or delicious, you decide–food I’ve ever seen.

Check this out, from a joint called Ditch Plains:

Whoa, Daddy. That’s hectic, man. Or “Mad hectic,” as my wife would say.

Oy and vey.

From Lohud:
"I (Swisher) was talking to a couple of guys on the Twins and they were talking about how balls travel down the line pretty well, but once you get into the gaps, 403 with a 30-foot wall, I’m not going deep over there. It’s not possible for me. I understand that.”

403' to the Gap?
And a 30' high wall?
Who builds a new stadium with dimensions like that?

I always thought that MLB should have some mandatory guidelines about the outfield wall distances. The Twins have 38 HRs, only 10 at Home.

[0] "mad hectic" - your being a hip hop kid is rubbing off on emily :}

[1] i guess that is one of the cool, quirky things about baseball - the fields are so different. but some kind of maximin/minimum ranges seems like it would be appropriate.

[2] yeah at first i thought that was macaroni salad and figured that would be a challenge to eat on a hot dog, but mac and cheese - i don't think so.

4) No, that's how she imitates me and makes fun of me. LOL

[5] oh, haha.
using 'mad' as a descriptor like that is classic, deep down she knows it too :}

I happen to LOVE mac and cheese, but throwing it on top of a hot dog .... (blech)

The conspiracy theorist in me thinks that owners believe that homer hitters earn bigger contracts, so if they make it harder to hit dingers, that will keep salaries down. (assuming more and more parks are built with "spacious" dimensions)

[10] Or perhaps they know that they can't afford most of the big power hitters, so they build a park best suited for a team whose strength is pitching and defense, just like the Mariners. Or is that the same thing as you were saying?

"Headach-ee I-rob-you"

Yeah, that's kind of what I'm saying ...
