* 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


Yes, and you should also know: JIM EDMONDS has the highest Isolated Power Rating (ISO) over the past 3 seasons, making him the Xth* ranked 5 hold hitter at gamedayritual.com!

* I forget what rank, but it was like 4th or 5th or something IIRC.

Vizquel has the most sacrafice hits...

I believe fewest DP was Ichiro.

My fiance says almost the exact same stuff. But I don't hassle her about her Sex in the City or any of that girly crap so we don't typically have a problem.

I saw someone post that fantasy baseball is kind of like dungeons and dragons for baseball junkies. Sounds about right to me. ;-D

Ah, Dungeons and Dragons... I never played but it sounded so cool. I always wanted to say stuff like- Your dragon fire melts my ice, black wizard. And then, my elf shoots you in the ass with an arrow.

You know that you're spending too much time here when stuff like this chokes you up.

Here's a sign... everyone's wasting their time here instead of discussion the "coolest letter."

Aside from that, Coppermine never talk in third person.
