"And with martians on, he's also hitting at .339."*

*the wisdom of a one Mr. Jerry Remy in response to Don Orsillo's report that Youkilis is hitting .339 with "people" on base.

Remy must not like those 5pm starts as it gives him precious little time to get into primo announcer form. No time to warm up the vocal chords or do Don Orsillo "Announcer Voice" promos. Seriously, does anyone else picture Orsillo warming up in front of a mirror all Ron Burgundy with the "I have some VERY. IMPORTANT. BREAKING. NEWS. Manny Ramirez ate chocolate cake for dinner." Turtleneck sweater optional. No? Just me? Okay then.

But what did we do to deserve Jerry Remy? We must have been very, very good.

And speaking of another famous number 2? The magic number drops again, folks. No letting up now, boys. Go and get it.
