That one I actually knew, but still wasted a guess and tried Trea Turner first.

The one that really killed me was the 200 Hit/30 SB one.  Tried Rickey and Tim Raines...somehow NEITHER of them fit which blew my mind.

So nobody’s done it since they moved from Montreal. Kicking myself I didn’t think of Vlad. The other names were in my opinion ungettable.

Went straight to Ichiro in that one. Forget rarity.

Same lol I guess Rickey and Raines walked too much?

I had guessed Murphy for the Nats 200 hits. A little surprising no one had done it yet.

same here. I guessed Soriano, Rendon, Muphy, Trea, and Harper, which pretty much used up all my guesses.

I had a tough one yesterday.  Smooth 9/9 today with better rarity than expected (although the bottom row left 2 were the lazy gimme answers).

20+ game winners is hard. I guessed Buehrle for the White Sox and Clemens for the Astros and then I gave up.

I got Jim Kaat (Cards and White Sox) and Joaquin Andujar (Cards and Astros). I saw Kaat on tv a couple weeks ago. Not sure how Andujar popped into my mind.

This is where being old helps. Jack McDowell, Mike Scott and Doug Drabek are recent memories.

I was confused. I thought all the blocks had to be twenty game winners. I should do better next time knowing the rules.

Wow. Pirates haven’t had a 20 game winner since 1991. Wow.

Got 7 of 9 today. Which was average.  It would help to be able to spell player names. I forgot how to spell DomOnic Brown for a Phillies all star to increase my rarity score.

Got one of my lowest rarity guesses yet going with Ryan Church in today's Nats-Mets square but then I somehow completely forgot about Adam Dunn for the Nats-Reds square.

Did the one a day or two ago.  I was going really well through all the cross-team spots.  6/6  Then I get to .300 career average.  I got the first one I tried. 

Then I move onto having to name an Oriole with a .300 career average.  I try Frank Robinson.  Strike one.  Eddie Murray?  Strike two, I'm done.  Apparently, Cal, Brooks, and Brady Anderson were also all well under .300 (I knew Cal was because of his lean years in the late 90s, but had no idea on the other two).

Ironically, I thought about Roberto Alomar but balked at it.  I look up his career average a bit later: exactly .300. :bang:

This crap is impossible. :lol:

Lots of possibilities for that one, thanks to Trader Jim.  I would have gone with FLop or Austin Kearns for rarity.
