Forget the other guys and get your stock tips from Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling

Listen, I'm going to be real with you: I don't understand the stock market. I don't really understand what the "economy" even is -- other than an option for rental cars. And when people talk about money, the only thought I have is, "I would like some of that." So, perhaps take this with a grain of salt when I tell you that Ross Stripling seems to really know what he's talking about when it comes to money. 

The Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher and chicken strip-lover went on Fox Business Network on Thursday to talk about his stock philosophy and the Dodgers' approach to analytics. As someone who knows nothing about the "market," I guess I'll let him take over my retirement fund. 

Stripling said, "It was optimistic, coming out and saying that our economy is growing, spending is strong and they're going to be patient with the rate hikes. October, November and December were certainly ugly for me as a growth investor -- that got out of hand. I definitely think we got oversold. I'm telling investors it's a good time to be patient and be long-term minded." 

Which, hey, those certainly sound like words!
