Well, a one-run lead with Correia on the bump. Game over, I'm turning in.


I was gonna post that exact same thing... I got distracted... You win

That's neither an ick nor an ish. It's an eye-stabbing moment.


Pinkeye a less drastic alternative...

I thought they're carrying Herrmann as a third catcher so Correia wouldn't have to bat.

The T-Wolves got the 13th pick in the NBA draft... Obviously there will 12 clear 1st round potential superstars.

Have the Wolves EVER had the pingpong ball come up such that they picked better than their reverse standings would have them?

The lottery is dumb. I don't see why they can't do the draft like every other league
I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

No... One year they had the 2nd best odds and ended up drafting 37th.

There were too many teams losing too many games on purpose to get better draft position. The tanking was totally out of control so the league made it harder to predict the result of sitting out all your good players in March.
