Today was frustrating as I could just not think of anyone playing for the teams that matched.

For the nba version of this Ish Smith, Kevin Ollie and Joe Smith are like Edwin Jackson for baseball.

Yeah I only got 4/9 yesterday. I did use Frank Thomas for the White Sox .300 hitter though.

Shoeless Joe was my pick. I like using the old-timers .

Ugh, today's should have been a pretty easy 9/9 but I wasted two guesses learning that neither Kris Bryant or Anthony Rizzo ever had .300 seasons with the Cubs.

Got 8 of 9.  Cheated on the last one to see what happened if I got them all!  Average score so far is 8.3.

These 200-hit/200-strikeout things really keep screwing me over.

Yesterday it's Will Clark never reached 200 hits for the Giants, today it's John Lackey never got 200 Ks in a season for the Angels (even though he hit 199 in 2005 :bang: ).

200 hits especially gets me since you can be an elite hitter and never reach that mark by walking too much (e.g., Ted Williams).

200 Ks is a bit easier since most good modern pitchers hit that mark in a full season while good pitchers from previous generations often reach it just from virtue of throwing so many more innings.

Yep. Me too. Gold Gloves have been hard also for teams I don’t follow.

They added first round draft pick today.  Threw me off. Was only able to get for one of the three teams listed.

Got one of my few immaculate scores today.  Nationals featured. Got a rarity score of 85 which is definitely my lowest. 

Sometime the awards throw me off because I don’t know when they started.  Like when did the Silver Slugger start?  Should look it up to help play the game.

Nice! 160 for me.

It’s funny how old names pop into your head some days.

FYI the Silver Slugger started 1980.
