Edwin is the Player of the Week

According to Amanda Branam of in the story Encarnacion named NL's best of week:

Reds third baseman Edwin Encarnacion was named the NL Player of the Week for Aug. 7-13 on Monday….Encarnacion led the National League last week with 24 total bases and a .960 slugging percentage, including four home runs.

Which begs the question: there's a woman named Amanda who writes for

And it's not ME??

What the heck is that all about? Oh, sure, you might say, “But Amanda, you didn't apply for any jobs at,” or “But Amanda, you live over two hours from Cincinnati,” or “But Amanda, you already have a successful career as a writer, stop being greedy” or “But Amanda, if you wrote for, they'd make you stop using the word 'crapitude' all the time to describe the bullpen's performance.”

And sure, you'd have a good point. But this is my blog, not, so I retain the right to be in a huff. And not in the good way. Aubrey is nowhere around.


Oh yeah: congrats EdE. You deserved it.

    RHM, check your e-mail about this other Amanda. 🙂

    HMZ, are you familiar with the term “Google Stalker”?

  3. Geki says:

    HMZ is creepier than me.

    That’s pretty creepy.

  4. Red Hot Mama says:

    Now, now, no one said anyone was creepy. Perhaps “focused” would be a better word.

    Lest anybody come along a month from now and read this out of context, let the record show that I did not stalk anybody and am not stalking anybody. 🙂

    I did gather intelligence (information). You might be interested to know that there is more than one federal agency that actually runs classes to teach people how to do that.

    The difference, of course, is that after duly reporting my findings (consisting of professional bonafides and a photo – and nothing of a personal nature – and shared only in private and only to RHM), I dropped it. CIA would keep it on file in the basement at Langley forever. NSA would have it on a computer at Fort Meade. NRO would probably just leak it to the press. (Oh, wait…I *am* the press. Hmmmm. Maybe that’s why Geki finds this so creepy? LOL!)

    A Google Stalker would be back tracking the same person again tomorrow, and the next day, and the next. This was a one-time thing, done in fun, and is over with.

    We now return to our regularly scheduled discussion of the Reds’ playoff run, already in progress.

    Just giving you a hard time, HMZ. Though I would wonder what you could dig up on me. I can think of at least one photo you could potentially stumble upon, but I hope you don’t. I was letting a very bad haircut grow out.

  7. KC2HMZ says:

    Well, since you just said you hope I don’t, I won’t. That may make you cross, and I wouldn’t want to do that. 🙂

    Very subtle. Nicely done. 😀
