  1. My favorite parts of this were when: - the title got stuck in the Florida territory in 1986 and mirrored Southern Title changes - Hogan finally wins it for the first time at This Tuesday in Texas - it avoids getting eternally stuck in Mexico or Japan, only to fall victim to James Ellsworth and the inevitable journey to minor Indies. I’d be interested in a version that was purely singles matches.
  2. I'd go with "for every batter hit, the pitching team's best position player (determined by whatever advanced metric) is suspended for 7 games", and I'd think you'd find a remarkable regaining of pitch control within weeks.
  3. Hopefully ending within 30 seconds by DQ due to Muta blinding PN News with mist while Hansen screamed “DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!”
  4. That’s a great DVD set! Take a drink every time Meltzer intros a match with “One of the…”
  5. For what it’s worth, players can take part in non-baseball/softball fantasy leagues as long as they aren’t hosted by an offshore-based site, or if the player resides in a state that hasn’t legalized sports betting, etc etc.
  6. And he even overcounted - it’s 14 times.
  7. I listen to podcasts at 1.25x speed; it’s perfect for speeding up slow-paced talkers and ponderous silences without making things sound too manic. Unfortunately, I can’t do that with BTS; Kris’s voice is a “quick-yet-legato” drawl and he tends to yawn quite a bit, which makes things difficult to discern at faster playback speeds. Not a complaint, mind you; just an observation.
  8. If batters were going to make a “simple” adjustment against the shift, it would have already happened. I swear, if baseball had somehow determined that a wall of four armor-padded infielders standing within 10 feet of home plate could snare all grounders and line drives and bring batting averages down to .005, there’d be people arguing “why don’t batters simply Baltimore Chop their way over the wall? We don’t need to ban this defense.”
  9. Yeah - I think I simply misremembered the early early board (where it was one long page of threads with no folders) as being blue, but the Internet Archive shows it in late 2000 as a green/pale yellow combo as you noted.
  10. This has probably been brought up at some point, but was the board blue before it was green? I’m now 753 years old, so my memory isn’t as crisp as it once was.
  11. That reminds of me of when a wrestler would not only be billed from Parts Unknown, but also Weight Unknown, and Gorilla Monsoon would say something like "I can understand hiding where you're from, but what's wrong with a guy hopping on a scale, Jess?"
  12. I would say it was the Midnight Rider vs. Lucifer mask vs. mask “loser must leave for a year” cage match in late 1983, but Sullivan was back within 90 days and they wrestled a bunch more until Dusty left for Crockett.
