Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Who do you think will end up as the best fish-named player? Mike Trout or Mike Carp? They both have a lot of work to do to catch Tim Salmon

    Catfish Hunter has a pretty strong lead on fish-named players. In terms of actual names, not nicknames, my money's on Trout.

    Where does Johnny "Crab" Evers (of "Tinker to Evers to Chance" fame) fall on this list of oceanic-named players?

    My sister needs some help. She just had to rush her cat to the emergency clinic because he was peeing blood. The little guy needs a $2500 surgery to survive, and she has no money left after paying for major car repairs last week. If you would consider sharing this on your twitter/facebook/whatever, that would be greatly appreciated. If you have a few dollars to pitch in and help her, that would be even more amazing of you. http://www.gofundme.com/clq06k

    Well, Trout can be freshwater, so using oceanic muddies the waters a bit.

    I'm really kicking myself for thinking he wouldnt be brought up until july. This is one of the many reasons I am bad at fantasy. Also, I have no fucking idea what to do in the espn league. I don't want to be one of those absentee owner but the situation is so beyond hopeless I'm only updating my team as a courtesy to all the other players.

    Good lord. From Keith Olbermann (and verified by twitter fact-checkers):
    Mickey Mantle debuted in NY in an exhibition vs #Dodgers, 1951. Bryce Harper debuts vs Dodgers tonight. Announcer then and now? Vin Scully

    Gonna be leaving work in a couple minutes so that I can get home and my wife and I can take my 2 1/2 year old son to the Phillies/Cubs game. My wife got tickets through work for the Diamond Club. We're Row 19 behind homeplate. He's going to lose his shit being that close to the field. It's gonna be great.

    First, this is hilarious, awesome, and sad. Instant replay, anyone?

    Also, I've decided that I'm not done dealing. I'm still willing to deal Downs plus one of Jackson, Holland, or Vogelsong for a pitching upgrade. If it's trading time, let's do this right :)

    I think we should start considering instant replay for routine plays. On the stipulation that managers have ONE instant-replay to play for the entire game (barring HR calls) in which they can challenge any umpire ruling (aside from balls and strikes). If the ruling is in the favor of the manager who challenged the play, then the play is reversed and they retain their right to call another instant replay. If they fail the challenge, welp, they just lost all privilege to challenge again.

    Instead of throwing a flag you get up and scream in the ump's face?

    That's how you start, but to commit to your instant replay request you have to throw your cap in the dirt and stomp on it.

    I just watched the video of that play. The best part is Mattingly pacing around afterwards, looking like he wants to take an angry shit in that ump's locker.

    The Dodgers announcers were incredulous. It was hilarious listening to them speculating about how far away Helton's foot was from the bag. Good times, made funnier by Jason Giambi's walk-off blast :)

    Yeah, Gallardo is being a putz (not Putz!) this early in a season. We should send him for a timeout to let him think about what he has done.

    Eh, give him at least one bad start a year. He'll be good enough in the others that it doesn't matter.

    At least you're not the guy in one of my leagues who owns Crawford, Ellsbury, Longoria, and Youkilis. He's.....um.......not winning........
