This post has two purposes.
First, to bump down the Ted love letter Brad threw up there while we were sleeping. We get it Brad - you love Ted. I, for one, am done with the NFL until the season starts. Although I did see that Johnny Jolly got picked up on drug charges - nice.
Second, to point out a phrase that I've never seen used before in a baseball story. This from the Associated Press story on today's Brewers game:
In his second start since being traded from Cleveland to Milwaukee, Sabathia pitched an eight-hitter, his fourth complete game of the season and 20th of his career.
Usually, a pitcher "scatters eight hits" - but I've never seen an outing referred to as an "eight-hitter" before. Maybe it's just me.
