Moving " runners" , oh yeah, that must mean the batter himself is the runner then? Dumbass.

And last time I checked runners means more than one runner. So I guess in MikeTard world there is 2 batters at the plate at the same time, considering now we refer to the hitter as the runner.

He actually becomes a runner when he starts, you know, running. He would be classified as a baserunner when he, you know, reaches a base. And I know this is some tricky stuff but, once he reaches base after hitting, he probably has a slugging percentage.

Now, if you'd like, you can list the 37 ways he can reach first without getting a hit but I think/hope you understand.

Did you think that up all by yourself? I'm impressed.

I guess you're out of dumb arguments. I really thought you could go on forever. Are you sure there's not more stupid in your head just dying to get out?

I'm sure he has a few more tricks up his sleeve mike.

skonley is a dumbass, not a debate.



That said I am excited about our bet. Mauer has never driven in 100 runs and his health/playing time makes this an interesting bet. I'm gambling that he's just starting to peak, he's at that age.

RBI are largely a product of opportunity. I'd be surprised if you didn't win on homers. He's at THAT age.

He 26 or 27 now?

That's funny mike, I actually told already told someone on this site exactly that in a different venue. He made the good supporting point that 16 of his home runs last season were to the opposite field. That does seem to exemplify real power in my opinion.

Going to be 27.

That's what makes the whole questioning of his contract outrageous to me- he already has 3 batting titles. If he merely keeps up what he has already accomplished, also given his status in Minnesota as another factor, he is worth the money.

Kind of funny that its been brought to my attention that you welched on some insignificant $10 bet recently. And I was going to wish you good luck, but after seeing that you really are a piece of ****, I hope Mauer goes 0-4 on opening day and gets runover by a bus.

Oh that hurts coming form you...Mr. Moving Runners Around the Bases Really means that the Batter himself is moving around the bases and Mr. Object of Offense isn't really to score runs. Get over yourself already douchebag.
