In case you missed the Brewers game yesterday (and I am guessing you probably did), Alcides Escobar made probably the best play I have seen all year. I described it on twitter as "alcides with a play jj is incapable of dreaming about" and later Al's Ramblings said basically the same thing (I would link to the post but Al has a terrible CMS that won't allow it). If you didn't see it or just want to watch it again, here it is.
Whenever you see a play like that you are awestruck and filled with questions. How did he do that? What was going through his mind on the play? Well, luckily for you I have the upgraded version of MLB.tv which includes a new feature called mind reading which I have transcribed for your enjoyment.

|Wait, is it "get it up" or "get enough"? I'll have to ask Mike about that later. It's weird that he was around back then, ya know? That song came out in 1979 and he was six. I wasn't even born til 6 years later. Yet here I am, singing it in my head during a baseball game.|
|Rusty Ryal steps up to the plate.|
|I wonder what Mike was like in the 80s. I bet he had a jheri curl and he wore a Daryl Strawberry jersey with a huge gold chain and then Michael Jackson's coat from Thriller over it.|
|He probably hit puberty when he was like 10 and has looked the same ever since.|
|What is the deal with that guy in the stands wearing the Packers jersey with the Diamondbacks hat? What message is he trying to send out? "Ladies, don't ever sleep with me"? I think it's working.|
|Imagine someone showing up to a World Cup game in an NFL jersey. They'd have so many bags of urine thrown at them, man, I don't even want to think about it. That sh*t wouldn't fly in Venezuela.|
|Why is JJ staring at me like that? He's looking at me like I stole his dog or something. I DON'T HAVE YOUR DOG JJ.WHY ARE YOU STARING AT ME LIKE THAT?|
|Oh yeah. That's why.
