Another week down, another series of reminders of why we love this site. There were breakdowns of how many batters a starter should retire at the start of the game to assure victory, proof that Jason Kipnis is the best second baseman in the league, "discussions" of Ubaldo and what makes a prospect matter...
Yes! And Soylent Green, hands down the crown jewel of the site, if you throw out literally everything else that goes on here. I'm not sure you guys have heard the story of what it took for Ryan to land me to do this gig.
Then in respect to him, I won't discuss it either, except to say that he went well over slot to get me and LGT is definitely losing first round picks because of it.
Okay, but if it had, I would think I'm worth it.
Thanks, Brad and Chuck! It's nice to feel wanted.
Sheesh. Like much of what happened on here in the last couple of days, I feel like that was unnecessarily ill-tempered. Anyway, I don't know if this tandem of green comments is my favorite because what happened was so comical or the description was so aptly absurd (or because it involved my brother), but this was my green of the week.
Ah, Brad. Lo these last 28 years you've been making me chuckle. Anywho, here's the rest of the stuff that happened to catch my eye this week.
I'm sure this is going to make me even more friends, but I'm closing with this because it's silly.
