PCS 6.4 All-Star Edition


















Puzzle Rules: The solution to the puzzle is a Dodger All-Star Pitcher. Comment freely in the thread, but if you have the solution, please don't give it away to everyone in the comments section. Instead, do the following:
  • Send me an Email with "PCS" somewhere in the subject line, containing the first and last name of the players, along with your reasoning. Submitted answers without the reasoning, or those submitted with the incorrect reasoning, will count for participation only, even if the answer itself is correct. And please include your screen name somewhere in the email; and
  • Post a comment simply saying you have emailed your solution attempt. We may not be able to reply to your original email promptly, so please be patient and check back on the comment thread for the latest news; we may confirm correct answers there.
Under the new rules, you now have until midnight PT on Saturday to submit your answer. Answer will be posted Sunday morning. Good luck!

Holy smokes, this looks complicated

Franklin Stubbs said...

I don't think this one is complicated once you know what you're looking at. Try using this site or this one to get your bearings. Google Sky works, too.

MR.F said...

Is this also the postgame thread?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Whatever floats your boat, Mr. F. I'm certainly qualified to offer commentary on lackluster performances.

QuadSevens said...

Hmmm...I have a list. Now time to try and crack the code or something.

QuadSevens said...

Answer sent!

Franklin Stubbs said...

It appears that 7777 has provided the correct answer.

Dusty Baker said...

This is one I know I could crack if I had the time. I'm not going to peek at the eventual answer so I can solve it on my own time.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Given my recent lack of success posting timely solve pages, you're probably safe for a while, DB.

Spank said...

Dude!

Jason said...

Answer sent!

MR.F said...

With the extra time, I will try to work on this.

Midnight on Saturday means... 11:59PM Sat/12:00AM Sun, right?

Jason said...

If you find a suitable answer to that quandary, let me know, Mr. F.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Mr. F / Jason:

Yes. The end of Saturday, beginning of Sunday.

Jason said...

The logical incongruity of midnight of one night being the first moment of the next day drives me slightly nuts. Of course, 99% of the world drives me nuts which may explain the drinking.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hey, at least it's not the International Date Line or anything. Seriously. Fuck that thing right in the earhole.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Jason is close enough to the mark to count as good. Clarifying response sent.

Paul said...

We are all born in the darkness before the day.



Stubbs! How's your mental state?

BJ Killeen said...

I'm with Stubbs on that one...

BJ Killeen said...

Shit dude, I'm an English major. When you gonna have a contest with verbs, and adverbs, and dangling participles?

Answer sent! Thanks Stubbs, this one was pretty cool.

Franklin Stubbs said...

There is a small bug where the last two letters of the solution are transposed. Regardless, the meaning and solution should still be evident, but it just proves I'm an idiot, so I think I'll just leave it in.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Paul,

That's deep, mang.

Mental state is a bit scattered (For reasons. Many of them good but time-consuming.)

Franklin Stubbs said...

To nobody's surprise, ubragg brings the goods.

Dusty Baker said...

@Stubbs

You sure went to great lengths to prove you're an idiot.

Spank said...

Domino,mofo!

Franklin Stubbs said...

It's what I do, Dusty.

It's what I do.

Also, I forgot to post this on friday night's PGT but this happened...

Best. Seats. Ever.

Dusty Baker said...

Sweet, Alex! Let us know how your experience was.

Steve Dittmore said...

S'up folks? Y'all been good? Wait... I already know Spanky's answer.

Alex said...

@DB

I'll send pictures when I get a chance! Sitting in those seats, running into Mr. Tommy Lasorda at the carving station in the Dugout Club buffet, HEARING Clayton's laser beams SMACK AJ's mitt - twas a magical day.

too bad we lost.

(cries)

Steve Sax said...

@Alex: why am I not surprised tommy was at the carving station...

...was Uribe there too?
