Open Thread, 9/2: Padres vs Dodgers

For my birthday, I got one of those grip-strength devices and I've been using it while in front of the computer. It got me to thinking about how terrific my grip strength will be once I wear the mofo out.

What if a pitcher had such terrific grip strength that he could squeeze the ball into a different shape, like say, a miniature football? That would be an interesting strategy.

GO PADRES!!!
