Did ESPN just get hacked or something??

Go to the MLB statistics page and look at who's leading the AL in ERA. The guy doesn't exist. Weird, right?

I'm pretty sure I saw that name tonight when I was looking at the game track for TEX/KC. I think it's a real person, but I don't think they should be at the top of the standings. Someone probably just messed up the coding and allowed him to be at the top.

Yeah, you're right. I looked around, and he made his MLB debut tonight. On ESPN he doesn't have a player page yet. But if someone were to hack into ESPN, that would be a cool trick to pull.

I have never heard of this Clemens fellow. Is it Rodney? Who knows really, these rookies never make it long.




I think they fixed it.

What's really scary is that Kenny Rogers... KENNY ROGERS... is actually leading the AL in ERA! :-o

You've got to know when hold 'em
Know when to fold them
know when to walk away
Know when to run...


I always liked that song....

Rogers should buy lotto ASAP because he's the luckiest sob on earth :)
If you found my advice helpful, please help me

Seriously, if ESPN got hacked though, how would anyone know it? Their site is so bad and crashes/is down so much a hacking might improve it.

You mind wind up an editor if you were able to sneak in and fix the glaring discrepancies in Kruk's columns.
