  1. Both of which are interesting stories, but McFetridge especially is fascinating! For those interested: McFetridge from SABR Schreiber from Wikipedia
  2. I haven't seen anything that said that it's a done deal, but I'm honestly pretty stoked for him. If it all pans out, Adam could put up some big numbers over there.
  3. Do you remember a guy named Forrest from Mrs. Deterding's 6th grade class? He's a pretty cool guy who you should hire to work for his favorite baseball team.

  9. Like I said, it was completely irrational! I also wasn't paying attention during his first stint, so I only remember his last few seasons.
  10. Orioles Mount Rushmore for Players That I Irrationally Really Disliked: B.J. Surhoff, Mark Trumbo, Aubrey Huff, Luke Scott. Orioles Mount Rushmore for Players That I Irrationally Really Liked: Daniel Cabrera, Tony Batista, Walter Young, Jay Gibbons.
  11. Or in this case, reading more into Dexter "Catfishing" Fowler quoting Jones than might be considered reasonable...
