I want to walk you all down the internet rabbit hole I just went down that led me to Gabe Kapler’s old blog site today.


For the past several years, Ketch hosts a “Fun Fact Q&A of the Day” in GroupMe (no further explanation needed there) and today’s question was “Which MLB player in the 3,000 Hit Club shares a birthday with my sister?

Naturally, I answered immediately with no words but the YouTube video of Matt Stairs hitting an absolute moonshot.

Did I know when Ketch’s sister’s birthday was? No.

Did I know when Matt Stair’s birthday was? No.

But I figured, who wouldn’t enjoy watching that ball get launched into orbit?!

(Please also note: Ketch awards “Humor Stars” for those who got the answer wrong BUT did make him chuckle that day in their answer… and in THAT sense, ladies & gentlemen, I am a sabermetric genius!)

Anyway, back to the rabbit hole.

So after answering my answer, I like to go and look up what the right one was – at the end of the day, I still just thirst for trivial knowledge.

So, today, I checked when his sister’s bday was (via Facebook) and then Google searched “MLB Players born on June 18.

One such player that came up was Andres Galarraga. I clicked on his player card because I remembered he was an absolutely HUGE dude and so I was like, “hmm maybeeeee he hit 3,000 hits.

(NOTE: He did not.)

Then, I was way more into finding out whether he got caught doing steroids. I mean, obviously he was doing them… Galarraga was an absolute unit, but the question was: DID HE GET CAUGHT?

I came upon the list of 103 names of people who were “guilty” of using roids back in 2003… Sosa, Nomar, Roger Clemens, Manny, etc.

But one name I noticed wasn’t there – Gabe Kapler!! I was like, no way that can be right. Kapler was huge.

So I Google searched Gabe Kapler steroids and this is where I struck gold…

During that search, a DeadSpin article came up with a tip from Gabe Kapler to players nowadays on “how to get testosterone boosted naturally.” It came from Kapstyle.com – Gabe’s own personal blog site.

Interested? I know you are are! Here it is!

Then, as I am now absolutely hooked, I found another one about using coconut oil to, uh, well… do more than cook!

I legit have never been more convinced this man is a genius.

Mark my words, the Philadelphia Phillies are taking the World Series this year.

Well, you know, so long as Bryce and this roster buy into Gabe and his absolute genius.
