SoSG Baseball, Day 3

NEWSFLASH: RISPy Business has announced the free-agent signing of Julie Hibbard to a $36-million/2-inning contract. To make room for Hibbard, RISPy Business has released E. Stephen.

Yesterday's Results: In the "Purple Game," Cigarcow singled off Fanerman, setting up a 1st and 2nd with nobody out situation. In the "Maroon Game," John G singled off Dr. Geek.

The Game Boards have been updated accordingly and also show today's matchups (as well as upcoming at-bats, with some reshuffling after the first time through the order). And let me just note that Rancho Ardiendo's last-minute lineup switch has produced an intriguing matchup between trash-talkers Loney Fan and Quad (see comments at 1:32pm and 2:05pm in this post).

So to honor this intriguing matchup, I've gone against the grain and picked a game that actually requires competence at deductive reasoning, a robust knowledge of Russian history, and the ability to skillfully maneuver the labyrinths of game theory. Click here for the game. And you only submit your score through Level 1 (in other words, the first 60 seconds, or the "400 Points to Win" Level). Subsequent levels are not part of this game.

So again, Pablo, R McGowan, Loney Fan, and QuadSevens, please submit a screenshot of your high score (only your first submission will count), include your screenname somewhere in your email, and don't reveal your score to anyone but SoSG. Good luck!

I love commanding special attention. Time to shine!

Dr. Geek said...

A simgle!?

I am an ineffective reliever.

QuadSevens said...

I will be spending a few hours after work playing this game. Stupid internet filters won't let me play at work!

Eric Karros said...

I guess theoretically you all should should collectively bat 0.500, and so far it has indeed been a hit parade (the only out is due to default).

Steve said...

Don't be so hard on yourself, Dr Geek... You want an ineffective reliever, wait 'til you see me pitch two days in a row!

Gooooooo Ryan McGowan!!!!!!

Dr. Geek said...

Man, I feel like Chan Ho Park pitching away from Dodger Stadium.

cigarcow said...

A single?? All that work for a crappy single?

fanerman said...

All that work and I still gave up a hit?!

Sorry GSoSGers. I let you down. Come on Loney Fan! Triple play!

fanerman said...

By the way, will the game continue on weekends?

Eric Karros said...

Nope, only weekdays (and not necessarily every weekday, so you gotta stay on your toes)

LET'S GO QUAD

Ryan McGowan said...

I too cannot play at work, go figure. Don't worry team I'll have my score in before the cutoff to set up an inning ending double play.

Loney Fan said...

Okay GSoSG, I cannot compete any longer as I have to go to class until 10pm and I do not want to blow the deadline. My fingers are bleeding and my forearms are completely cramped. I threw him a "Kershaw Curve" so I think we are good to go. Also, I have not seen our fourth teammate, Tony, participating in any of the comments. I am beginning to get a little worried that he is going to be a no show tomorrow.

Tony, let us know you are ready to take the mound tomorrow.

QuadSevens said...

Time for me to head home and get some real work done...hitting a homerun off of Loney Fan!

Ryan McGowan said...

Better late than never, scores in. Let's go double play!
