to answer your question from the MLB thread, yes those pitchers work. I tested it in incognito mode.
can’t believe I forgot pujols
Joyner before Pujols is hilarious. What the hell was I thinking?
Pujols never hit .300 with the Angels
I am going to assume I am the only one who answered Randy Choate.
Don’t think that matters in this game. Right?
HOW TO PLAY
Select a player for each cell that matches the criteria for that cell's row and column
For a player to be considered valid for a team, he must've played at least one game for that team at the MLB level
If a cell is for a team and an award, the player you select must have won that award while on that team
If a cell is for a team and a season stat, the player you select must have recorded that stat while on that team
If you select a player for a cell with a rate stat (AVG, ERA, etc.), that player must've accumulated that stat in a completed season
A player cannot be used twice
You have 9 guesses to fill out the grid
Each guess, whether correct or incorrect, counts as a guess
You can guess active or inactive MLB players
There is a new grid every day
It does for the .300 hitter for the Angels answer.
Good to know moving forward. I should read directions.
I lucked out. Wally only did it once, and it was .301.
Well I clearly don't know shit about Tampa Bay. The other parts were easy enough.
Embarrassing that I didn’t get bottom right.
I would have been so fucking good at this game in the 2000-2010 range. Paying almost no attention to baseball in the last decade hurts me.
totally blanked out on top left. My first guess for rays .300 was James loney. Looked up after and he hit .299
guessed Longoria as the over .300 Ray
closest he got was .294
Delmon Young is a great answer. I honestly did not realize Justin Upton played for the Angels.
I like this game and I'm mad I can't just keep doing them. I don't like this whole once a day thing.
Had same mistake
I did too and then doubled down with Ben Zobrist who hit .297 one year ... I got none of the Rays row.
Didn’t realize you only got 9 guesses for all 9 squares. I think I would like the game more if correct answers didn’t count against you and you had 3 “strikes” to complete. Would be more satisfying imo, but obviously easier
Then it wouldn’t be immaculate.
I’m struggling to come up with someone other than Ruth for bottom right.
Not realizing a guy who played 6.5 years somewhere is something.
When he was traded to the Angels from the Tigers was probably the height of my not following baseball at all time. I remember still following the Tigers when they signed him and he started playing for them so it had to be 2016-2017 range that I checked out.
and b) looking him up, it looks like it was 4.5 seasons and 361 games total for them (so an average of 60-90 games per season depending if you want to count the split season).
They got anything like this for the nba or nfl???
had absolutely no idea who to guess for that last one. Sorry Tampa and Detroit
im not in charge of that
Today's is really fucking with me
I screwed myself out of one square. I guessed Dansby for the ATL-ARI square initially forgetting the player to play for the team, not just be in the organization. Second, I should have had Inciarte as the NYM-ARI square and Shelby Miller for the ATL-ARI square.
Why did I think d’Arnaud played for Toronto?
7/9... got the 7 easy, but I was completely stumped on the last 2
I guess I'm the only one who doesn't remember Larry Walker stealing bases like that. I guessed Carlos Gonzales. He was close with 34/26 in 2010
This is a great game.
I 100% guessed and was surprised when I was correct
Immaculate Grid 82 5/9:
Top right got me
That’s why I didn’t guess him. Had no idea he stole bases.
was so frustrating not being able to think of anyone for the last one
Dante Bichette also went 30-30 for the Rockies. I thought of him first but wasn’t sure and then was more confident in Walker. But I checked after and he did it once.
As well as another former 1990s Rockies legend
Pissed I Missed Rockies-Blue Jays, that was obvious as fuck.
It sucks because I legitimately can't do this but would crush and NBA or NFL one.
I’m sure they will pop up soon with the popularity of this one exploding. Just like all the wordle spin offs.
For bottom right, idk why he popped in my head right away instead of the obvious current player.
