A final respite between series 180

That last thread filled up quick. You FKers are prolific. Perhaps an open thread to talk about statistics, internet memes, medical terminology, what have you. "Kraut will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no kraut."

Is There A Draft In here? 87

Today is draft day, which means it’s time for my annual FKing cameo. With so little baseball and so much going on in the world, other than shitty behaviour by owners, the draft is about all the baseball we have to talk about. MLB has cut the draft to just 5 rounds and teams will ...

Stroman is the only major piece to be traded thus far, and the A’s acquisitions of ex Royals have been barely enough to whet the ...

Getting to the Halfway Mark 152

The first half of a home & home with the Cardinals. Think Piscotty will get the Pujols treatment?
