As the founder of the making the Pirates relevant tour, and the demise at which they have brought forth upon this Cubs organization, it should be obvious there is only 1 real answer here.

Vote me, BDwak (?) as your new IGT spot filler, and allow me to bring the Cubs back to the land of promise.

Good thing I didn't dredge up the time I said Harry Pavlidis renamed your wife The Slutter (http://www.prosportsdaily.com/forums/showpost.php?p=10164697&postcount=11).

Know Your North Side Pitchers - Randy Wells (http://www.southsidesox.com/2009/6/25/925728/know-your-north-side-pitchers):


Wells' slider is usually around 84/85 and comes with more sweep than sink. So, it's a little on the sluttery side. The change is too close to 84mph for my taste, given the just-touching-90 fastballs. That's barely enough separation...

...Anyway, the point was the pitch mix. 454 fastballs, 333 off-speed. The slider is thrown nearly as much as the sinker, so maybe we should call him a slutter-baller. Or not.


Also, let's not forget what started our love affair (http://www.prosportsdaily.com/forums/showpost.php?p=9991652&postcount=601).

Does anyone else find it incredibly stupid that Twan isn't listed in this thread because BMD doesn't find him funny? There are literally half a dozen people calling for his name and he's not even on the list. Beyond that, all the more experienced Cubs mods, which is, ya know - all of them...allowed his threads to remain open and even commented on them while BMD just hated and closed.

So the moral of the story is as long as one mod doesn't like you, you're allowed to be singled out without any repercussions. Didn't realize this had become dbroncos territory.

Yagyu IMO would make the consistently best game threads. Ronin would do them the normal way and he'd do them very well, YNH or Twan would make a couple that are extremely funny but the rest either they wouldn't be around to make or wouldn't be that good, but I think Yagyu has the combination of kind of f'd up sense of humor and attention to detail that his gamethreads would consistently be gold.

Making good gamethreads is a young man's game, you'd make some very good ones, hell, maybe the best, but eventually you'd tire and resort to normal ones. Yagyu's young and spry, and just itchin' to show us what he's got.

But I mean seriously, he should get this if for nothing else but going into the Pirate forum and making a 1979 World Series Game 7 thread. That's ridiculous and outstanding.

But most importantly....you are falling victim to a classic mistake, and one you know better than to fall victim to.

For $100 you'll have to man up to overall standings and just not regular season, that is what finishing higher means.

Eh, I have to agree with YNH when it comes to this bet.

Over the course of a year, the "best team" is the team that finishes first in the regular season standings.

But league champion is the team that obviously wins in the post season.

Lets be honest....in all sports, including fantasy and real life, the best team rarely wins it all. It's the team that is hot in the post season.

Your bet makes it sound like you want to see who has the best team at the end of the season. I would go with the regular season standings

Eh, I have to agree with YNH when it comes to this bet.

Over the course of a year, the "best team" is the team that finishes first in the regular season standings.

But league champion is the team that obviously wins in the post season.

Lets be honest....in all sports, including fantasy and real life, the best team rarely wins it all. It's the team that is hot in the post season.

Your bet makes it sound like you want to see who has the best team at the end of the season. I would go with the regular season standings

Exhibit A - 2008 Cubs
Exhibit B - 2006 Cardinals

I've laid out the terms. You can either accept them or not. I really don't give a **** either way.

But I'm damn sure not going to bother with a measly $20. I mean, why even bring up such a small amount?

$100 for the best regular season record & if by some slim chance there is a tie the winner goes by H2H record., **** I'm already 0-1.

Since we all know how much Post Count matters here on PSD, I took the time to devise a metric for how effective a poster each candidate has been during their respective tenures.

I took the approximate number of posts each candidate has contributed to PSD -- Post Count or PC -- divided it by the number of votes they've netted thus far -- Posts Per Vote or PPV -- and then divided that number by 1000 to make the results more manageable.

.001(PC/V) = PPV/K

In alphabetical order, here are the results of how many posts it took for each member to earn a vote:


Candidate Posts Votes PPV/K
BDawk4Prez 9600 15 .640
Poodski 22700 12 1.892
Rndy69 930 3 .310
Ron1n 10500 27 .389
RWB 68000 3 22.667
Shrek 3300 4 .825
Yagyu 2420 8 .303
YNH 25900 26 .996
Average 17916 12 3.502

Notice how Yagyu has made the most effective use of his posts -- 75 times more efficient than RWB, one of the two lowest vote getters. Had Yagyu the Post Count of RWB, he would, without a doubt, have received no less than 600 votes thus far.

The average PPV/K of the candidates (sum of all PPV/K / # of Candidates) is 3.502. While this is offset by RWB's poor showing, clearly any candidate with a PPV/K greater than 3.502 should be nowhere near the IGT Rotation, let alone above 1.000.

Let's remove RWB's aberration of a PPV/K from the equation for a more accurate average among the remaining seven: .765. This dramatic shift eliminates RWB, Poodski, Shrek, and YNH -- one of the top two vote recipients. They are below average candidates in respect to their effectiveness.

Of the potential candidates, your most effective options for the rotation are BDawk4Prez, Rndy69, Ron1n, and -- of course -- Yagyu, of whom some of the more intelligent posters, such as Jilly Bohnson, have long since recognized:


Yagyu IMO would make the consistently best game threads. Ronin would do them the normal way and he'd do them very well, YNH or Twan would make a couple that are extremely funny but the rest either they wouldn't be around to make or wouldn't be that good, but I think Yagyu has the combination of kind of f'd up sense of humor and attention to detail that his gamethreads would consistently be gold.

Funny.....when I visited London the British people couldn't have been nicer to me. Most asked questions about where in the States I was from, and since it was during the whole Blagojevich scandal, they all knew exactly where I was talking about when I said "Illinois."

Also, I kind of take issue with the idea that you'd have to introduce yourself as American in the first place. Who have you ever been introduced to for the first time that said "Hi, my name is (insert name here). I'm (insert country of origin of choice)."

Unfortantly, voting for Bdawk has been dissabled, till he returns my PM with links on bats for softball.

PSD ate my original message. Just resent it. Make sure to tack on the 17 votes that didn't register during the down time please and thanks.

If we do another round of voting it should be between the candidates with the highest PPV/Ks -- BDawk4Prez, Rndy69, Ron1n, and Yagyu. These are your most effective potential new members of the rotation.

And if not, I'm throwing my support behind Ron1n, as he's the highest vote recipient with the PPV/K closest to the top -- my own. Should we have another round of elections following this potential primary, Yagyu will officially endorse Ron1n.

Ron1n: he's 2.56 times the candidate that YNH is...

...and Yagyu is 3.29 times the candidate that YNH is.

Yagyu, it was I that showed you the light over in Pirates land. Have you already forgotten? Your soul, your well being, the person you are right now is in large part to the sacrifices that I voluntarily made before you.

Have you no dignity, no honor, no shame? Do you not see what I have created for not only you, but every Cubs fan seitting in their homes right now wondering, anticipating what is next in this journey?

Look, the results speak for themselves. When I went yonder to seek refuge and homage with our pittsburgh constituents, the results spoke for themselves. They were revived, inspired, shown a winning way. they decimated the Cubs, owned them, completely controlled all of our pre-existing fates.

It was then that I realized that there was so much more that I could offer this team, so much untapped potential and dare I say, scrappiness that this organization has ben longing for. So I left the land of opportunity to come back home, to be with my brothers, my amigos, my fraternity for life.

What has happened since that return, and the rekindling of the love affair that I have had with this team since the young ripe age of 7? What has happend since I have confessed an undying love, and the desire to help put this team in a place where others have failed. What has happened since I have come to the PSD nation and asked for their support in allowing me the opportunity to showcase not only my individual IGT abilities, but to welcome the idea of putting this entire franchise/fanbase/organization on my shouldrs every 5th series to insure that success happens and that failure remains a distant memory to us all.

What has happened Yagyu, I will tell you. the Cubs have not tasted defeat. We have not, as fans, felt the hearts being pulled from our bodies, our souls are no longer being tortured, we have tasted victory, and victory is sweet.

Granted, we have also not lost since you proclaimed an interest as well, for that matter, since everyone in the poll has. So all and all, good luck to everyone. :)

Dignity? Honor? Shame?

I too have suffered the indignity of having my posts deleted by one "YankeeFan28" -- a mark I proudly wear in solidarity with my Black and Gold revivalists.

But I must ask, where were you, sir?

Where were you when the shores of the mighty Allegheny were overrun?

It was I -- alone -- left to fend for fair PNC, its archways, steel truss work, and the good citizens who fill its seats.

I am but a man, BDawk4Prez, and I was not enough.

I saw the light Yagyu, it all became so clear to me. This is where I need to be. This is solidarity my brother.

It was not enough to revive a city, a fan base, a legendary club such as the Pirates. With all of the hard working, blue collar laborers, with the Allgehney
filled with its bountiful hauls, the steel truss work, the safe haven known as PNC park, it was never, truely, "home".

The power scared me, the effect we were having on the nation humbled me.

It is here Yagyu where you belong. Right here with us. Your family.

It is time to shed the black and gold. Shed the chains of yankeefan28, shed those shackles that have bound us to the powers of "the man".

Come back Yagyu as this is your home. The Friendly Confines, the 7th inning special guest singers, Len and Bob, Scrappy and the Little Lord, Croce and Po. This is where it began, this is where Yagyu was born, this, my friend is a revolution like no other.

Come home Yagyu, we will leave the light on for you.

Dear BDawk4Prez,

Mine is not a revolution aimed at transference of power to a new party, but a rebellion intended to prevent the triumph of amnesia.

A war against oblivion.

It is a sharp thorn jabbing into the cold heart of those who refuse to acknowledge the need for a championship. An issue that is 101 years old will not be settled in time for the evening news.

I have no time for hate-dominated fundamentalisms that fill the void where our team has failed.

I understand the Allegheny Allure – it pierced the seductive boredom of Cubdom with its haunting questions:

What will today’s lineup be? Does Derrek Lee suck at baseball? Is X a precursor to Peavy?

Raised from the hidden depths of our continental history an issue that our society seeks to forget: World Series Conquest by the Cubs.

The integrity of our institution seems to depend more on denying, rather than candid confrontation. Our Cub nation takes solid starting pitchers and relegates them to the bullpen. We call this “Year One” – indicating that we’ve moved beyond a dark chapter of the past – something regrettable but finished – shirking responsibility this season by the present generation.

With a vanishing rationale, combined with an unwillingness to confront the past in the present, we become a fan base whose smugness grows in proportion to our denial. The toxic result is that we repeat the past again and again, through a process of transference.

And there are flashbacks: Cubby occurrences.

Ghosts to kill again.

I return to you, BDawk4Prez, humbled.

And I have complete cognizance of what must be done.

El pueblo, unido, jama sera vencido!

Ya basta!


Your brother in arms,

It doesn't allow me to close the poll at 10:00 p.m. since the poll was already created. My only options are "select how many days after may 17th you want the poll to close"

And I likely won't be on PSD later tonight, so it closes at 9:37 a.m. Friday morning.
