Official Dom Brown Watch, Day 8: Brewers at Phillies Gamethread, June 1, 2013

Seriously, this is better than OJ.

Rich Schultz

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.
