    I will add to Lav’s post and that is there are 76 No Selections for 3.07 percent and the highest No Selection was page 6 with a streak of 18.

    • LaVolpe

      Thanx Vinny. If I’d known you could run the numbers, I would’ve asked you to post ’em so the day’s 2500 could be displayed accurately. As it is, it’s the Top2500 – resets + those that moved up due to resets. Oh well. Numbers will be skewed a bit for today & tomorrow.

  3. vinny1979

    McCann isn’t injured. He’s just not catching Hudson is all. I think we will see him pinch hit tonight.

  4. gpearson17

    Boy, as a Reds fan who hates the Cardinals — and who picked Phillips tonight — you can probably imagine how I feel right now…

    Mark, BOS needs just 1 extra hitter in 8th/9th for A-Gone to get another AB. Keep your fingers crossed.

  8. nymets1979

    What is going on with ESPN? Almost every link I click on for MLB comes up as Not Found. Irritating!

  9. nymets1979

    I hate that I have to pick and choose between sites. One day one works and the others don’t. Then the next the ones that worked don’t and vice versa.

  10. LaVolpe

    Ugh, how many times have you made a pick, watched the 1st inning or two, and immediately started to get a queasy feeling? Been feeling that most of the game today.

    • champion_88

      Funny thing about that word queasy.

      I was at my uncle’s house yesterday (which explains why I did not post much) and we were playing anagrams and my aunt insisted that “quesy” was how it was spelled and my uncle looks up the spelling on his phone and for some reason, urban dictionary comes up and confirms that quesy is a word.

      Of course,our family’s phones all had no service while he looked it up, even though we have the same provider.

      We get home and see that “quesy” isn’t a word after all and I was right all along.

      I know that had nothing to do with your post, but I found it surprising to see someone use the word “queasy” on here, just a day after that “quesy” controversy!

    • LaVolpe

      Really? Doubt he’ll stay in game if he PHs.If it does happen, those that picked him obviously hoping for hit or walk or bunt (not likely). Can increase reset rate today dramatically!
