If you fell asleep before The Daily Show or The Colbert Report came on, you missed a couple of great baseball bits. I'd rather not tell you what the clip above is about for fear of ruining the joke, but rest assured waiting for the payoff to an already-funny bit is worth it.
After the jump, you can find Baseball Prospectus' Nate Silver appearing on The Colbert Report. Silver also runs the political projection site FiveThirtyEight.com and says Obama (who he compares to the Rays) has an 89 percent chance to win the election over John McCain (who he compares to the Seattle Pilots).
