Ghosts of Slaughtered Binary Baby Sales Seek Revenge Against Manny

How's that for a non-sensical post title?*

But here's the gist: not since Manny's first game in Dodger Blue, when they went down 2-1 to the D-Backs back on August 1 despite his 2-for-4 day, have the Dodgers gone binary. That's 12 consecutive non-binary games, their longest streak of the season. In fact, their binary average has dropped from 0.363 (25 binary games of 69 total) to 0.298 (36 of 121). During that time, we've seen Binary Baby sales drop a whopping 58%. And they are looking for some payback.

Incidentally, the Dodgers season high in runs was 16 vs the Rockies on July 21. Is it time to get Dodger Hexadecimal Babies on the market?

Did anyone else see the shots of 4 business people dressed in suits wearing the Manny Dreads Hats on tv last night? They looked ridiculous, but the hats looked good.

I saw that, Quad. I actually paused it for a while so my girlfriend could come in and see it.

We were all cracking up over that one.

Those weren't fake dreads.

I love it! Here in Boston, the local news ran a story about Manny's haircut. It went something like:

Manny cut his dreads about one inch last night, now you can read his name, he went 0-3, you can expect another haircut before spring training.

I swear the Boston media is worse than the state run Chinese media.

Did they run that item in the classifieds section?
