Okay, so, can we officially just change the purpose of the gamethread to Dom Brown and Dom Brown related things?
I'm not being snarky -- there are few things more interesting in baseball, let alone the Phillies, to me at this very moment than Domonic Brown's insane power surge. I don't want to call it Bautistian because, well, jinxes. I don't want to call it a fluke because that just seems unfair to how friggin' great it's been. So all I do is watch and salivate, waiting for the next inevitable dinger.
Will it ever get old? Will I ever see a Dom Brown home run, yawn, and say, "Well, fine. He hit his 85th dinger, but I'm more worried about if Broderick is going to get a rose on The Bachelorette." I mean, almost certainly not, but isn't that a kind of concern?
And what if he doesn't hit one tonight? Am I going to be disappointed? Does that make me a bad fan? Or am I a jerk for lowering my expectations when Brown is playing such phenomenal baseball?
Will I need to go to therapy if Brown hits another home run?
Discuss all of your neuroses and Domonic Brown and...huh, there's a baseball game, too? Weird -- feel free to talk about that, too, I guess.
