    Default Meaning of `Big Bat' and 'Crossed thread'

    Which brings us back to your Big Bat.....

    What is the meaning `Big Bat' here.


    I never said anything about it being big bat. I think we have a crossed thread here.

    What is crossed thread here?

    Could anyone explain it?

    Thank you.

    So, I think 'Big Bat' doesn't has any meaning?

    It was a reference to another thread, where someone was asking about double entendres. A series of expressions commonly used in baseball were used as examples of double entendres ("I'd like to get to first base with her", etc). You have to use your imagination to figure out what each of the expressions was hinting at.
