“Our Navy, larger than the next 13 international navies combined,
can be compared to the highest-paid team in baseball. With its Barry
Bonds super carriers, Mark McGwire cruisers, and Sammy Sosa destroyers,
today’s Navy consists of all power hitters, with huge slugging
percentages and salaries to match
— An article that — while having nothing to do with baseball — uses those sluggers, Rickey Henderson and Moneyball to try and explain modern naval warfare. I’m waiting for some writer to suggest that the Navy is a disgrace to something or other.
I dunno, just found it interesting.
