If you have to explain a joke with stats it's just not funny :-t

But for a guy like me...who knows jack about baseball it had to be explained. Sorry I ruined the moment. :,-( :-D

Once upon a time this was a thread for funny pictures, which is what started the confusion.

Teddy is right. I don't know what amateur Cafe n00b started this thread, but the point of it was to replace the "funny pic thread" that had gotten out of control with some of the stuff posted.
