This was a ton of fun and if they made one with 1,000 batting stances instead of 10 I'd play it all the way through

Yeah, it's pretty fun. The trivia part isn't really necessary -- just provide the silhouette of the hitter.

I got 7/10 and I can't really do the weird older batting stances...

That’s...really impressive. For those that don’t want to do the math, this goes back to 1902.

What’s as odd is that they only won 2 titles and reached only a handful of playoff appearances for 118 years of that stretch.


Karma's a b1tch.

I think Cutch is my all time favorite non-Cub.

That thread also has a great one of Doc Ellis.

Yeah, one of my favorite cold opens ever.

I was debating which gif to use for the Arrieta dominance back in 2015 and decided to go with this one. It's great lol.
