Same with my fiance, except to her it's, "that gay baseball crap thing you do", which, consequently, along with fantasy football, paid for her Valentines Day present :-D

I pronounce it Wuuhveres, or just Bill. My wife knows who I'm talking about. Actually, my wife hears about quite a few of you guys. What a shocker, huh? :-b

There isn't something you'd like to tell us, is there? ;-) :-D

I don't think I've actually used anyone here's names in speech. I don't know if it's just embarrassment from the inevitable questions that will arise regarding how I know this person or if I just know that no one really cares to hear about my fantasy baseball exploits. !+) Durn those fantasy football sheep at work!

In any event, nothing has ever presented itself to me as an acceptable audible solution for "wrveres." There are just too many consonants that don't match in there. I seem to end up coming back to a badly slurred "Revere," as in Paul Revere, or a badly slurred "rear" for the shortened "wr." This needs some work.

I'm sure I have #4, although I haven't checked. I refer to you guys in my head like "Amazinz said this guy won't K as many guys as last year" but I don't think its ever come up in speech.

* I have no idea how how to pronounce wrveres, I won't even try.

Who has the most hits as a switch hitter over the last 3 seasons?
Who has grounded into the fewest double plays over the past 3 seasons?
Who has the most holds by a soutpaw over the past 2 seasons?
Who has the highest ISO over the past 3 seasons?
Who has the most SB over the past 3 seasons?


Gameday ritual is really wierd and overly complicated (I did football), but I'll try to crack these off the top of my head.

1.Berkman
2.Vizquel
3.Cotts
4. ISO? Should I know what this is?
5. Podsednik

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!
