I found the first post ever to have a "WHIR" in it...

I Googled "WHIR" and a lot of pages were clicked until I found the genesis of WHIR...it was the 1978 season and the cafe was known as the Fantasy Baseball Bistro...

3B - Schmidt

(Take note: Every time someone posts their roster it has King Felix and Hamels on it. This was a play on that)

Not for a 5 team league...
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

That's really something having King Felix and Hamels 4 years before they were born. I actually just drafted Santana's fetus in my keeper. Heard good things about the kid. :-b

Somehow, I think most people are scratching their heads at this post. Personally, I thought it was funny...
