MLB Saturday Pool Party Live Thread

We're Firing Up the Barbecue and the Pool Is Ready for a Party, Join In! [MLB Live Thread]

6/30/12 in MLB   |   kramer   |   11004 respect

Hello out there in FanIQ Land!  It's Saturday, hooray for the weekend!  I can't believe that this year is half over already, where has the time gone?!  Anywho, all 30 teams are in action today and later tonight, including a day-night doubleheader in the Twin Cities.  It's a day full of baseball, and the action on the field promises to be just as hot as the mercury level in most cities across North America.  It's all here, from afternoon matinees in the Bronx and St. Louis, to Baseball Night in America tonight on FOX.  This is the place to be from the first pitch in Yankees Stadium until the final out is made in Seattle later tonight.  We're having a Q pool party and you're invited.  As long as you bring food or a beverage, we promise not to throw you in the pool with your clothes on.  Enough of all the introductory stuff, put on your swimsuit and hop in, here's today's schedule...

Chicago White Sox @ New York Yankees: 1:05 PM ET (CSN Chicago, YES)

This is your official live thread to come and talk (or bitch) about your team(s) and the game(s) you're watching this afternoon and tonight.  Your QTWIB host will not be available, but enjoy the party nonetheless.  Help yourself to burgers on the grille, a cold beer (or four), and remember, we only have one rule here on the Q for this party...we don't swim in your toilet, so please don't pee in our pool!

Let's get this party started!

BK over and out

*AHEM!*

I'd like an apology for that now, Jeff.  What team is losing?  Maybe you should start believing the Bucs are for real.  This ain't your daddy's Pirates.

a PITCHERS EARNED RUN AVERAGE is the big stat..............if one is 3.25 and the others is 2.25 as you said.......the 2.25 is better........he would give up about 2 runs a game as compared to the 3 runs a game.....so the lower the better.........the sample you give in football is TEAM WISE....not individual...........

Ok so it's the ERA I started to say that but it sounded like something you invest in so I didn't ...lmao and yes I do know that in football it's the Team not a single player.. ;-)

Ok so what's that called and that means that a 225 would be better then a 325?. right? Cuz in football a .500 is better then a .300... Why is baseball backwards?...lol
