And the Winner Is….

Parachat. Somehow we got 72 votes although there's no way in hell we've had 72 different people go through the chat room. Fraud!!! The good news is that we were able to embed the chat into our web design which makes us happy. What also makes us happy is if you go to the chat page, you'll notice right below the "Connect" button a link that says "Free User Name Registration". If you guys wouldn't mind taking a moment and registering your nicknames it would help. Basically go through their registration process and then everytime you enter Parachat, enter with whatever nickname you registered and it'll ask you for a password once the page loads up. Sweet and simple! If you prefer the floaty window version of Parachat, that's still available. Once you enter the site, there's a button at the bottom that has four arrows pointing to each corner of the box. Click that and you get the popup window version. The only problem I've encountered so far is that once I enter Parachat, it won't let me minimize Firefox. Can't have everything I suppose. TCR donate The final order of business is the annoying ads. We certainly don't want to take your money, but if we could get about fifteen to twenty of you to donate $5 a piece (we need $75 total), once Paypal skims off the top, we'll have enough for the advanced room which eliminates the ads and gives some administration features. You can of course donate just to show your appreciation for the site and all amounts are welcome. Donations of $100 or more get you a date with Transmission. $500 or more you get a happy ending.

whats the point of registering a name?

no one can steal your nickname and pretend to be you and if we get the paid version then with the admin controls I can boot the troublemakers.

You certainly don't have to....

I'll give you a few bucks.

The homer dolphin lives on!

~dolphin~

If we don't get the $75 bucks (or reasonably close) by the weekend, I BELIEVE I can refund your money.

But I could be wrong about that....

i don't mind registering (I already did), I was just trying to figure out the benefit of it.

i will send some cash - it is worth not having ads.

~Yell1~

This may be the happiest day of my life.

Donation is on its way.

thanks guys, you're all being more than generous

Donation made. I mostly lurk, but you guys do great work. Keep it up!

And be sure to tell us the total amount this fund drive raises over the next several days. :-)

Donation coming soon. TCR League money coming soon, too.

Soon = 1, 2 days.

BTW, I was totally stoked to donate $100, but I have this rule against Tranny dates.

/someone had to say it ;-)

oh yeah, finally listened to that tune you sent me jacos, funny stuff. Is there an Internet link somewhere so I can let the crowd know in the Friday Notes. Uploading it and all is kind of a pain...

Anyone else getting a green screen with audio on non-Mosaic MLB.tv?

And be sure to tell us the total amount this fund drive raises over the next several days.

Well if my plan works I'll be owning a small Caribbean island and AZ Phil will be running the joint. :)

MLB.tv problem fixed. Nevermind.

Why buy an island when you can buy a historic NL franchise?

Priorities, priorities...

Donation made, although I don't think I qualify for the date.

Been pretty much a lurker for the last year or two, but now that I find myself checking in daily I guess it's finally time to contribute a bit. A donation is on it's way. Hope to run into you guys in the chat room sometime soon...

I hate how easily the Twins score runs.

BB.
Strikeout.
Funniest stolen base I've seen in a while (you'll see it in Sportscenter -- Jason Tyner literally slid and crawled to second base. He was lucky Alberto Castillo's throw was awful (he threw from his knees, Pudge style)
Texas leaguer to right, Tyner scores.

100 and 500!?!?!?!

When you called me, Rob, you said 1000 and 5000!!!!!!!

Harrumph.

You do realize, that any amount of money that you raise beyond 75, I will attribute to my enormous sex-appeal.

How appropriate is it that a Chicago-related vote has more votes registered than possible voters.....

90/10 split is pretty fair pimp/prostitute economics...so I'm told.

sweet Broxton struck out the side against Milwaukee, now if they could only come back and take the lead to get him the win it would make for a good fantasy night.

Dropping $500 to the TCR fund would also make for a good fantasy night.

Dan Wheeler and Brad Lidge, two of the game's best relievers, get pummeled on back to back nights. That's not a good fantasy night.

meh...Cordero gets a gift strike call to end the game.

Well, the Brewers are 2-0. The Pirates are an out away from 2-0. The Cards and Astros are both headed for 0-2.

HA! Korey followed by Bynum vs Joe Nathan tonight. Gotta love ex-Cubs.

Sosa got his first hit...single

nice: who's chatting now:

2Naughty2Sweet, Anaya, AngelIsMe, Aniday, badsanta, Bissy, Devar, Erich_, feelingnaughty, FISTYBOY, frisky, K9, LITTLESTAR, lovetogodown, marijuana, nikhil79, Nom, Nonsense, Parachat_Romeo, sepp, sexxysuemarie, SirLunchaLot, SUPERSTUD, switpari, WhateverDamnit, WhiteEagle

Pujols coming up as the tying run vs Heilman

where did that list come from kjk?

i tried to sign up as FISTBOY, but ALAS!

aw thanks....our chat isn't advertised though on their site like geesee was so no worries.

i sent a blast of "artillery" across your bow, but ALAS! it was only a welcome message ....

*giggle-man*

yeah, forgot I had that open actually. Bummer I missed it.

funds transferred from super-secret swiss bank account. transmission better be wearing something skimpy ...

Rob G-
I was just sent the attachment, not sure where it came from.

thnx....I'll figure a way to upload it.

ah nevermind, I found it online...

bricks and ivy radio

Go Rockies youngsters! Tulowitzki double to right to tie the game, Iannetta single to left to win it.

I'm really starting to like that group, TG. They might not be the class of that division this year.. but just wait around a couple years.

Once O'Dowd finally found a plan and stuck to it, it's paying off. He's finally building the right team for playing at altitude.

Yo trans guy, how did you fix your mlb.tv? just curios.

[...] If you know of any other lists, feel free to mention them in the comments. Also, don’t forget about our parachat/donation drive if you can spare a few bucks. [...]

Just made my donation. I also mostly lurk around here, but I love the writing and have resolved to chat/participate/chill-out more with the community starting this season.

I feel so disenfranchised.

Glad to have ya, DeeJ, hope to hear more from ya in the future!

    Chris Sale was scratched from tonight's scheduled start due to a clubhouse incident before the game

    ...wow

    he was sent home by the team, too. the wsox released a press statement and everything. they stated it was non-physical in nature.

  • He was scratched from his start today. No reason given.

    Rob Richardson 8 hours 53 min ago view
  • At the start of the season the book was that he was trying to pitch to more contact so he could stay in the game longer and it seems to be working so far. Contact against is 77.5% this year and it was 70.2% the year before. He averaged 6.7 IP/game last year and so far it's 7 IP/game. His actual pitches per game are only down to 106.1/game from 107.2/game last year but if he's able to go a bit farther into games without throwing more pitches and without giving up more runs that is a good thing.

  • sale's skills and insane value makes it almost too hard to have a market for the guy...he's got 3/38m owed to him over 3 seasons (2 team options). he could easily pull in 30m/yr if he was on the market as a FA.

    he's throwing a bit differently this season, especially with more sliders and less changeups like earlier in his career, but all his stuff still looks great even if the HRs are a little elevated and the Ks are down.

  • Torres, Happ, McKinney, Jimenez, and Candelario for Sale. Deal or no deal?

    "The White Sox are reportedly asking for “five top prospects” for Chris Sale, FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman reports."

    John Beasley 12 hours 5 min ago view
  • Unless he develops 30+ HR power and keeps his walk rate close to his K rate at the MLB level, he's not going to turn into Prince Fielder. And even if he does turn into Prince Fielder, he's gonna have a short prime. His very limited athleticism is likely to also detract some value from his ability to reach base--I don't buy making an out as being preferable to base clogging, but you'd certainly prefer just about any base runner other than Vogelbach, David Ortiz, etc.

  • seeing as arod has played a total of 27.1 innings of D at 1st/3rd and somehow managed a -0.5 dWAR with his 1 error at 1st and an overall positive total zone rating...he might end up even more in the shitter via the characteristics/flaws/whatever of how some sites determine various WAR values. dWAR doesn't directly lead to a WAR value, but the 2 main entities pushing the most popular variations of WAR sometimes lead to some interesting discrepancies in value.

  • I have a lot of faith in Baez that he's going to turn into a more consistent, solid player. It looks like it took him about a half season or so of futility at the plate to figure out he was not talented enough to get away with the crazy approach he had. I think his running game will eventually have a more measured aggression.
