Maybe I'm going too far with the stats, but we have an official Biscuit Basher.

Greg Sain is with the Huntsville Stars now, but played the last two seasons with the Mobile BayBears. After his home run Sunday that sparked Huntsville to a 4-1 victory, I suspected I would find that he likes the taste of Biscuits.

I delved into the statistics -- with a little help from radio talent Jim Tocco -- and came up with the numbers, which agreed. In 29 games against Montgomery over the last three years, Sain is 31-for-104 (.298) with 16 runs scored, 21 RBIs and nine home runs. For a whole season, that projects to more than 80 runs scored, 105 RBIs and 45 homers.

Montgomery mascot Big Mo may be, according to the team, a "fuzzy, orange, Biscuit-lovin' beast." Sain isn't fuzzy or orange.
