it's commentary like this that makes us love the site.

Enrique Wilson - 2B - NYY
May. 5 - 1:30 am et

Enrique Wilson got the start at second base tonight and went 3-for-5 with three RBI.
Miguel Cairo is supposed to be the Yankees' starting shortstop, but Wilson has started two of the last four games. Since he finally had a decent game offensively, it wouldn't be surprising to see him play again on Wednesday.
Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he'll drown because you forgot to teach him to swim.

That was pretty humorous. Took me 3 reads to catch the error though :-° . I kind of like their site. They keep you up to date on the lesser known players that alter the standings in really deep 16-20+ team leagues.

ESPN has a serious problem with getting the correct pictures of D-backs players up. (i.e. http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=1794940)

They used to put Danny Bautista's picture up for Miguel Batista, and Junior Spivey for Danny Bautista.

Time to update those resumes, boys, and make yourself look like an editor.
