Pick Flick (well, erkno11, in this case): I don't know what I voted for, but I chose SpoFi's very own Eric Knott anyway.

Dammit, I messed that one up pretty bad, hey? Pick Flick. That's what it should've been. Sorry.

Cheerleaders in fishnets and f-me boots! (I voted.)

I think that I voted for him. So..................what did I vote for? Nice picture, though.

According to bablefish, we answered this question: "Of the five estranjeros in the training field, that debera to leave?" Oh joy, more cheerleaders.

I was vote #69. Dude.

I'm kind of afraid the poll question is: "Of the five stangers in training camp, who do you want to leave?"

According to my spanish speaking officemate... "Of the five players in training camp, who should leave?" Vote Kester!

It showed I was vote #69 too, so I don't know if I really voted for him or not. on preview: oh crap I hope I didn't vote for him.

Well, thank goodness Eric has dropped down into the 18% range then. He was at 20.something% when I first saw the Web site.

So wait, are we positive that getting votes is bad? I wish I could read French.

Holy shit - with friends like us...

Man, what strange paving material this road to hell has. But hey, there were cheerleaders!

posted by NoMich at 03:23 PM on March 13

Vote for that fucking Donny Leon. ("Forget it, Donny, you're out of your element!") Besides they can't get rid of Knott, he is a "zurdo." I could see if he was a pitcher "derecho," but not a pitcher "zurdo."

I wish I could read French. Good one!

Ack, it would be nice for a warning near the top to prevent people from voting for him...

crap. i watched the video and now i'll have their theme song in my head for the rest of the day.

I don't know what I voted for, but I chose SpoFi's very own Eric Knott anyway. Let the records show that it's NoMich's fault that a bunch of english speaking SpoFites voted for poor Eric.

posted by njsk8r20 at 05:52 PM on March 13

Wait... you all just voted him off, because no one understands Spanish? I love you fools.

posted by jerseygirl at 05:53 PM on March 13

I have to say, I feel dirty voting anyone out. Also, since when is Mexican League baseball like Heathers?

posted by yerfatma at 06:27 PM on March 13

What's your damage, yerfatma?

posted by jerseygirl at 06:47 PM on March 13

For the record, Don Leon is the gringo that's about to not get a clock and I provided links to cheerleaders. What have y'all done? Complained and ogled cheerleaders, that's what. I know what time it is! Flavor Flaaaav!!

posted by NoMich at 07:02 PM on March 13

So we were voting him off the team? Oh shnap! Ok, I won't tell him if you guys don't tell him...

Any chance it says "Results are not scientific" anywhere?

You mean like at the border?

saludos de mexico, gracias por las votas i guess. kester and schneider were released yesterday and now i am the solo gringo aqui. i guess i can work on improving my spanish again. things are going well, we just arrived in puebla two days ago. two weeks in metepec was enough. we took a four day four town tour through mexico last week and it was interesting. we went to xalapa veracruz, huatulco veracruz, leon guanajuato, and queretaro queretaro. traveling through veracruz was awesome. pure jungles and mountains and our bus dangling off the edge of mountains and 7 or 8 thousand feet above sea level. very cool. i enjoy getting to experience the real mexico. we played on some crap fields, though. one had no grass whatsover and the outfield was pure rocks and gravel. i miss my family but besides that things are good. thanks for the support and iŽll try to keep in touch

Good to hear from you, Eric. Best of luck.

posted by DrJohnEvans at 11:28 AM on March 14

Yeah, Eric, thanks for the update. The wife and I were in Costa Rica last year, so I can somewhat envision your description of the jungles, the scary mountain roads and dusty play fields. Though, in the case of Costa Rica, those bad playing fields were for soccer. In Samara (an awesome, tiny, dusty Pacific oceanside village) the local soccer field also serves as a pooping ground for the wild horses in the area. Good luck to you Eric. Say hola to the cheerleaders for us.

posted by NoMich at 12:11 PM on March 14

Less talk about baseball and jungles, more pictures of slutty-lookng Mexican cheerleaders in fishnets and jackboots! Best of luck, el gringo grande.

Viva El gringo grande! Arriba! (Vatos Locos forever?)

posted by WeedyMcSmokey at 01:53 PM on March 14

You guys didn't tell him that we tried to kill his career, did you? Whew! I would tell Eric good luck in spanish, or mexican, or whatever, but the only thing I know is viva gordita...

posted by wingnut4life at 02:43 PM on March 14

Have fun Eric, and good luck!

SportsFilter: The pooping ground for the wild horses

The next time soneone mentions how Sportsfilter is one of the few places on the internet for intelligent sports fans, I'm pointing them to this thread. That was awesome. I love you guys.
