    Nobody cared about pitch counts in my day.

    "He does a good job getting to that balance point" just about sums up his anaylisis of every pitcher in the major leauges.

    A co-worker pointed this out to me several years ago and it has since driven me crazy. Bert will say "right there" in almost every sentence. Like "That was a good slider right there" or "He goes inside right there for the strikeout."

    It's like noticing every time somebody says "um" when they're talking. I can't not notice it now!

    I think that Twins fans are ready and deserving of a more intellectually stimulating broadcast.

    I'm wondering how many games in a row Bert is gonna say something like: 'in today's game throwing 7 innings is like pitching a complete game in the old days'. He did it on the Fox Saturday broadcast, he did it Sunday and both games yesterday.

    How about Gladdenisms, for us radio listeners?

    I'll suggest "jamshot" (or "jam shot" or "jam-shot" -- style handbooks differ on the written representation of the term). Gladden has the remarkable ability to describe a wide variety of baseball hits, of different speeds, trajectories, distances, and directions, with the same term "jamshot". It's quite elegant in its simplicity, really.

    I'd go with jam-shot.

    It actually sounds a little dirty when Gladden says it too. I think it's because he uses the term so often, it doesn't really accurately describe the play, so one's imagination is left to wander...

    Maybe what's really happening is that instead of taking jello-shots, he's slurping down jam-shots instead. That would explain much of his inane blathering during the game.

    Interesting idea. My wife is out of town. Maybe I'll experiment with this and see if I can get jam-shots to work.

    If I'm even less coherent than normal tonight, that'll be why.

    Just remember, you have to exclaim "jam-shot!" prior to taking each one.
