There’s Something in My Heart and It’s in My Eyes…

Yeah, and if I’m ever at the crossroads
And start feeling mixed signals like Morse code
My soul starts to grow colder than the North Pole
I try to focus on the whole of where the torch goes
In the tradition of these legendary sports pros
As far as I can see, I’ve made it to the threshold
Lord knows I’ve waited for this a lifetime
And I’m an icon when I let my light shine
Shine bright as an example of a champion
Taking the advantage, never copping out or canceling
Burn like a chariot, learn how to carry it
Maverick, always above and beyond average
Fuel to the flame that I train with and travel with
Something in my eyes say I’m so close to having the prize
I realize I’m supposed to reach for the skies
Never let somebody try to tell you otherwise

It All Goes Together


“Physicists do not need mysticism and mystics do not need physics, but humanity needs both.”

This is one of my favorite quotes because I believe it can be directly applied to the game of baseball:


“Sabermetricians do not need traditional scouting and scouts do not need sabermetrics, but the game of baseball needs both.”
