Exactly. We can take up 34 pages avoiding making a list on an impossible happening. God bless the Cafe. :,-(


Over under on 50...


I say over (this should be a good way to get 3 more pages) O:-)

I understand that this thread deals with some heady ideas and is hard to follow, so sorry for making you feel dumb.

It wouldn't be over 50 if someone would stop and actually make a list of 3 home run games.

You're not the only one. But, I guess I should stop encouraging it by bumping this thread. Why do I continue clicking that thread title just to see the name "Jose Reyes" :-[

But seriously, and I am being serious... with all the love for the 3 homer games in this thread why has no one brought up Wells. He had one too. It's because he's playing in Canada isn't it?


Its the exchange rate. His "three" homers up in Canada only translate to roughly 2.356 homers in America. Hope that helps.


So if you have a 3 home run game in China, its only .00012316 home runs here?


Pretty much. That's why they don't play baseball in China, or so the legend goes... 8-o

10 pages? in 5 minutes?

Can we get a post started on how many cafe members have read 10 pages in 5 minutes this year? It's almost like saying Reyes could have a 3 homer game.
