Tracy McGrady ‘a presence’ on hill

“I also have Roger Clemens out here. What better person to have teaching you some things about pitching than Roger Clemens?”

Phrasing!

is it weird I think Lana is the hottest woman on TV? No. No it isn't. Weird.

Lana is a pregnant cartoon character. So yes, that is weird.

My vote goes to Amy Santiago on Brooklyn 99 (Melissa Fumero).

Lana is an animated character. Every chracter on Brooklyn 99 save Andre Braugher is a cartoon.

Lana. Lana. Lana! Lana! LAAANAAA!!!

I think it would be awesome if The Big Sleep has success in any sort of pro baseball. I've read a few articles through the years about him wanting to try this and throwing BP when he knows someone that can get him access. Good for him for giving it a shot.

Could be worse. When we were kids, I remember a buddy of mine getting a boner watching The Little Mermaid (something about those seashells...). Another friend thought Gadget the fix-it mouse from Disney's Rescue Rangers was hot.

Man, I had some twisted friends...

I hope he's ironed out his mechanics since whenever this was filmed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JxzN8eaJV0

@Booeymonger #8 - Don't judge! Krieger messes around with an anime princess of some sort.

OK, OK, he's a cartoon also, but she's a fake cartoon if you see what I mean.

Seriously, is there any video of him actually pitching? Can't find it anywhere.

Do you see him pictured here?

Well that has me disturbed.

Pre-Spring training on BBTF, when EVERY thread turns to sex. Baseball needs to start and soon.

#16, so you're saying we should think about baseball?
   18. Bug Selig Posted: February 12, 2014 at 07:34 PM (#4655936)
Tracy McGrady is a presence ANYWHERE.
   19. God Posted: February 12, 2014 at 07:58 PM (#4655942)
If he ever makes the majors, he'll get a spot on the Reggie Cleveland All-Stars.

Is it weird that I'm way more into Cheryl/Carol?

What, no other Pam fans here? Anyone?...Anyone?

And #14 leaves me in awe. Wow. Silly Russians.

Michael Schur has a gift for making the normally pretty but unfunny girl in a comedy very, very funny. Santiago's a great character, and Fumero is blazing hot eye candy.

This is cool. Dudes that are 6-7 and can move like TMac are pretty rare. Yea, being 6-7 and throwing a baseball 99 mph is pretty cool too, but not quite as cool as dunking on some fool or a reverse layup at the same height.

I hope he makes a little noise and is at least adequate throwing 89 from a funky angle.

Lana has "Johnny Benchian fingers." That alone is enough to exclude her from the "hottest woman on TV" discussion.

Considering Gadget is supposedly based on Jordan from the movie "Real Genius", I'd say, "Yes, please!"
