Twin Peaks is also on hiatus...

"Twin Peaks" got two seasons.

I'll be sending the Metaphor Explanation Strike Team to your home.

Fine. Be that way.

The Strike Team are nice guys though. They will knock down your door with a Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable.

Well, the joke's on them because my door is open. And my screen door is very sturdy.

The only Strike Team I know of is on "The Shield" on F/X.

And you DON'T want to mess with THEM.

Bob obviously tuned out my last Catfish Stew article when he saw the word "political" near the top. Perhaps I need to send the Metaphor Explanation Strike Team to Bob's home to explain to him how his overly simplified, completely unsubtle characterization of Zito's adjustment as a "hiatus" is exactly what is wrong with America today.

This message brought to you by the Committee To Defend Greg Brock From Further Humiliation Political Action Committee of Redundancy Committee.

I hear that committee meets at The La Brea Tar Pits and is well connected to the Los Angeles Angels.

All I really wanted to do was mock Heather Graham's sitcom!

Geez, Bob. For once can this not be about Heather Graham's sitcom?

Also from the Dept. of Redundancy Dept. big fears for Lincolns elbow(BA). Looks like the Pirates are going through it with #1 pitching picks like the Dodgers did sometime in the '80s. There is a lot of plain bad luck involved, though maybe scouting /checking involved.

And speaking of deliveries, Baseball Musings has nice video of Tim Lincecum's controversial moves.
