Please consider me for membership in the lesser of two evils fan club.


Ditto.

Also, Todd, how do you leave me out of the Mauer club? Seriously?


Because you diss half of the club when you claim that Morneau didn't deserve his MVP and Mauer should have had it instead?




Despite the fishhook, I nearly started composing yet another defense of that argument. Instinct kicking in, I guess.

Part of the deal is that you have to explain acronyms and abbreviations.

As usually, Todd is shortchanging Club Awesome. Can't say I'm surprised. First, Club Awesome celebrates both Mauer and Morneau, because they're awesome. Second, its members are frankly too numerous to list, but I would be remiss in not explicitly singling out Steve Lentz, creator of the iconic "Did I ever tell you guys I don't worry..." line that was much of the inspiration behind the Club and serves as the Club's official motto.

Additionally, I believe Stiegel is the founder of TFYGC. Matt is a member, as am I.


Thanks Dave. I was very offended by my exclusion.

We should be able to differentiate between A Fine Young Gentlemen and a freakin Nut Hugger.

I saw Jacque Jones was referred to as Wormburner earlier.

I always went with Frenchy.

Also, Lecroy was referred to as Lumpy.

I usually went with Bugeater.

Just to clarify...the nuthuggers is not a club. It's a derogatory term that parlin has used in his feeble attempts to diminish the FYG fan club.

This seems like ages ago now, since Cuddyer is now Gardy's main main (next to Punto).....but we may need to explain the "Blame it on Cuddyer" stuff to Lynn.

Let me know if you are familiar with this, Lynn. If not, I will enlighten you (as I so often do).

Needless to say I would never be mistaken for a member, but I thought it was the most creative club name of the season. Parlin is a genius.

I always preferred The Undertaker to Straight Cash Money. The only problem is that he wound being the one getting dirt shoveled in his face.

It used to be the Fifth Horseman: Death, Conquest, War, Famine and Cuddyer.

Others I remember:

He shall be Livan for Livan Hernandez
Silvia or Silvia's Mother for Carlos Silva
Fatista, Batsucksa or Crouching Tony Hidden OBP for Batista
RonDL for Rondel White
C-Cup for CC Sabathia

Michael chased; he just chased.

Is the complete audio of that press conference available somewhere?

Who knew Steve was Parlin's father until now?
