Nice hops, rook.

Is it just my not-very-well-informed perception that there is a loooot of excellent young talent in baseball right now? Or is there really a loooot of excellent young talent in baseball right now?

Absolutely disagree. Stephen Curry *has* to be the MVP of the series. To say otherwise would run counter to my SpoFi Pick 'Em prediction that he would win the MVP. Nuff said!!1!

WTF MLB? Baseball Strikes Out With Its Streaming Policies.

Charlotte, NC is in a thin zone through the western piedmont area that gets no Baltimore, Atlanta or Cincinnati games. Cincinnati? WTF? And the last time I subscribed to, Baltimore and Washington games were blacked out. I wonder if that still holds and if so, if Charlotte gets no Washington games either.

It seems some of you are missing the Largest Margin of Victory in a Single Game category.

Thanks for doing this, ufez. There was a period there where I was so busy with work that the only reason I got onto a computer was to do work and not do fun things like badly guess sporting events.

Had that been cricket, all that contact after the two dot balls would've been a bunch of singles and maybe a few boundaries before the six. All in three overs. Not bad.

"We're going to have the greatest player of his generation not involved in the play! They'll never expect it!"

Well, you know, it worked out so well with the Seahawks this past Super Bowl.

That is quite the story. And what a wonderfully forgiving woman. I mean...I'm not so sure she should have, but what the hell, maybe he got it all out of his system in that one axe/razor attack.
