All these 1s and 0s...

Only 11,000 wins until he gets 10,000,000,000 wins. Assuming we win about as quickly as we lose, we can expect to celebrate it in... late May?

Anyway, yeah! Congrats for win 1,111,101,000! (Doesn't quite have the same ring to it in binary as in decimal, does it? albeit rather impressive at first glance.)

And for my own curiosity, i believe the figure excludes post season, but includes the game 163.

"Right, 1000. What did I say?"


Look at the picture. You have an extra '0' in there.

He's not good offensively, but he is putting together good at bats. Taking pitches, fouling pitches off, etc. He'll get a few hits here or there. If the rest of the offense keeps hitting like today, it won't matter that much.

Better times 10. But at that rate he's not going to make it to the All Star Break unless he can get his parents to kiss at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance...

In blind date setup terms, he still looks like the first thing you'd say about how he looks at the plate is that he has a great sense of defense.

And if he ever wants to post a wOBA over .300, it sure seems that his best chance is still to steal Barry Bonds' Elbow Guard of Pitch Attraction +3 and take a bunch for the team...

There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Do I need to collect the mouse, monitor, and CPU to complete the Basement Nerdom set?
