    Slow off season, Bored?

    Trivia anyone? Here's a fun WAR leader by year trivia game from Sporacle. I got 104 out of 120, which I'm not too proud of after seeing some of the names I missed. Give it a try and post your score, lie if you must!

    I only got 82. Wasted a lot of time not figuring out how to spell Mr. 1967. Also I probably would have done better had I realized earlier that the teams are listed. That's a big hint.

    Fantasy baseball is a good way to kill the off season. You should go hang out in the LoD thread and make a couple trades. Our draft is coming up soon too!

    YOU GOT 73% AVG SCORE 65% Well done. You passed!

    88/120

    Missed a load of pitchers...and one great hitter who did it 4 times. 1989 was my most recent missed one. For the life of me I couldn't remember who was on that team.

    I got 86. But in my own defence, it took me five full minutes to realize that pitchers were included, and I spent a lot of time then trying to recall great pitchers from the early 20th century. How could Christy Mathewson not have been a WAR winner?

    Only got 77. In my defense I did it while my girlfriend read a pointless buzzfeed list to me.

    Luckily I remembered Dizzy Trout's great 1944 season because when I typed in "Trout", Mike's 4 seasons popped in. Probably would have missed them otherwise.


    Got 80. Should've done better

    By the way, if you're interested there are endless other baseball quizzes on sporcle: https://www.sporcle.com/games/subcat...sortBy=alltime

    21,513 of them to be exact, if the sidebar can be believed.

    94. I'm fine with that. There are names I never would've remembered.
