A. My name is on the sidebar. It's also at the top of this post.
Q. What is this blog about?
A. Generally baseball.
Q. But what about baseball?
A. Whatever I feel like and goes uncovered by the other people who write blogs here. Sometimes I duplicate their work. I don't mean to.
Q. What's the deal with catcher's interfence?
A. Somebody had to care about it. If not me, then who else?
Q. Do you know all this stuff off the top of your head?
A. Usually I don't. Sometimes I do. Sometimes I just make it up.
Q. Are you a fan of any one team?
A. In general, I'm a Dodgers fan, but the Griddle is officially nonpartisan.
Q. Do you really hate Frank Robinson and why?
A. I don't personally hate him, and I've never met the man. But he has always bugged me. It's a complex issue. I used to hate Russ Ortiz, but I got over it.
Q. Do you hate the city of St. Louis?
A. My family hails from St. Louis. My mother was born there and my father was born across the Mississippi in Breese, Illinois. They used to be Cardinals fans. Then they moved out West in 1960 and changed allegiances to the Dodgers. But they still liked the Cardinals to a certain extent.
Q. So why do you make fun of Cardinal fans?
A. I don't. They're the Best Fans in Baseball™ It is a violation of Federal Law to make fun of them. Violations of this law are punishible by forcing you to go to St. Louis.
Q. What's the deal with Delaware?
A. Is there a Delaware? I don't think so. I think it just exists for tax purposes and to keep Pennsylvania from saying it's the first state.
Q. Do you like Pennsylvania more?
A. I really have no opinion about Pennsylvania.
Q. Why do you bug people about spelling and grammar?
A. I try not to as much anymore. It's a very annoying trait of mine, but sometimes I can't help myself. But don't tell me that November 11 is Veteran's Day or else I will lay you out.
Q. Have you always been like this?
A. No, I was much smaller when I was born. 21 inches long in fact. I have since added 56 inches to my height.
Q. Really, you don't look that tall?
A. I have really bad posture.
Q. Do you really keep score at every baseball game you go to?
A. I try.
Q. Why do you do that?
A. So I can tell you what happened when you went to the bathroom.
Q. What happens if you have to go to the bathroom?
A. I go. You can figure it out from there.
Q. What's the most exciting baseball game you've been to in person?
