*idea by jag, thread by me*

"what my friends and i have been doing for the past few months is screen capping mlb player's stats from baseball reference (including the years) and sending them to each other to guess which player it is

like career stats

i usually screen cap it without showing the position column so i can give that as a hint if they need help

along with their initials later on"

so yeah, I feel like this would be fun to play, so let's get started!! I'll start I guess?

for the sake of keeping the game going, we should probably just let whoever wants to post the next picture

otherwise we could be waiting for several days for someone to show back up

(that said, kudos to zero, kfpc, and gotwins! maybe I'll make a leaderboard to show who has most correct answers? idk)
