Thames and Uribe Badges Appear In Sax's Display Case

Thanks to Marcus Thames' HR last night and Juan Uribe's even more unlikely double, I now have two Dodgers badges in my display case:

And luckily, they're situated right next to each other! (For some bizarre unexplained-to-date reason*, Fukudome and Aramis Ramirez of the Cubs, as well as Mitch Moreland and Yorvit Torrealba of the Rangers, need to be separated in the case.)

(*) I'm working on this.

Alex Rios makes an appearance in Sax's display case, with a double for the White Sox today

Steve Sax said...

Well now, this is interesting.

Alex Gordon had a double in today's KC-MIN victory for the Royals, which should have earned him a badge--but because I already have one of Gordon (from 4/5/11), he didn't "double up" in my display case.

Which sucks, as they really should make this tradable "currency" among badge addicts like me.

@Sax nope, I forgot and had the window minimized :(

when am I going to learn?

karina said...

In the other hand, this badges things is useful when one is playing fantasy baseball, one obsession feeds the other.

Not that I have a baseball problem...

Steve Sax said...

Walkoff homer for Inge, wow. Tigers take two of three from the AL West-leading Rangers; both were one-run games. This Josh Hamilton absence is gonna hurt.

Steve Sax said...

@karina, the minimized window shouldn't matter, I don't believe? I am running internet explorer with a bunch of tabs open and they seem to all register okay (except for Alex Gordon's non-double-badging).

@Sax, if you are into double bagging, you should try this: Long Trail DoubleBag

@Sax then, I don't know what happened. I use Safari,though

Why are there no badges for pitching accomplishments?

Random comment: I am going to a Yoga class this evening. I am scurred.

Steve Sax said...

Warrior pose!

MR.F said...

I've never done Yoga before (aside from playing as Dhalsim in Street Fighter), but it seems like something I'd enjoy.

Josh S. said...

I would pay to see Mr. F bust out a Yoga Flame in class.

Mr. F:
In a yoga class, position yourself in the back of the class and keep staring straight ahead (depending on just how many girls are ahead of you, of course).

Am I hearing things, or are the Dodgers trying to sign the MSB?

Orel said...

Why you'd enjoy being in a room with hot, sweaty women wearing skimpy skintight clothing is beyond me, Mr. F.

MR.F said...

Ahhhhhhh

I seem to have an Opening Day badge and the one from Urine last night. Thx fools for getting me started obsessing about yet another thing.
