Orel,

Your enthusiasm makes it seem like you're auditioning for PA announcer for the all-nerd squad.

@Orel: As per Mr. Customer, could you also say "It's time for the PCS Puzzle Correct Answer List!"

Mr. Customer said...

Sweet, I'm batting cleanup behind Ubragg! I smell a lucrative free agent contract in my future.

Eric Karros said...

If Quad is batting 7th you know it's a pretty sweet lineup. The rookie Golem is given the 6-hole.

I wonder who's gonna end up pitching.

QuadSevens said...

I hope to be as good as Matt Kemp was in the lower half of the lineup.

rbnlaw said...

Answer sent to fill the 8 hole.

Take that, neeebs!

Mr. Customer said...

@EK

Q7 would be higher in the lineup, but we're alternating right brain/left brain.

Eric Karros said...

The 3-4-5 is like murderer's row. Imagine if BWrightson weren't on the DL - there wouldn't be enough RBI's to go around.

I still can't figure out where to start...

I am proud to bat in the 8th spot in the tradition of such luminaries as The Beard, The Bison, and the O-Dawg.

This is getting to be ri-goddamn-diculous.

I'm starting to feel like Stallone in Demolition Man.

"He doesn't know how to use the 3 Seashells?"

Mr. Customer said...

Lucky numbers are great, but I'm dying to know the fortune.

Shameful, cheap and desperate attempt sent in.
