1800's is not baseball.  I'm out on that one.  But if Cap Anson is EVER the right answer in one of these, that will be the day CB does not guess him.  So my only guess is that it is NOT Anson.

 

22 innings.

Whoa whoa whoa.  We can just guess "NOT Anson"?  I'm going to guess that it's someone who has never been in my kitchen and less than 400 innings.

 

 

I'd say someone that hasn't been in my kitchen but then the answer could be my wife.

 

I really hope that isn't an euphemism.

Surprise, surprise, Spriggs get 22 innings right.

 

It was Jimmy Ryan, and I don't think he did it either time while the team was the Cubs.  I think they were the Colts an bleh, the White Stockings, when he did it.  (Big shout out to baseball mogul, where I spent an absurd amount of time managing the late 1800s-early 1900s Cubs teams) 

 

Correct.  The Calendar called it out as "Chicago's NL team".  I want to say 1888 was the White Stockings and 1891 was the Colts.

 

 

Sweet, my guess was right.  900 points to me!

Meh, I hear he puts 'roids in his burgers, so his real score is likely much lower.

How exactly -0 different from a 0? Is it that much more of nothing?

That means you are lower than zero, but not quite at -1 yet.

Wouldn't that require a decimal point? I know I'm asking a lot out of a finance guy, but come on sheesh.

You know the answer to the horrible, insensitive, sexist joke/question, "why do women have such small feet?" 

 

It is so they can get closer to the kitchen sink.

I think you should round TWCs score down.  He does not deserve 420.  Drop the .999999999999999 my way if you'd be so kind...

Fuck that noise.  I'm about to go off to the Humbolt County woods for four days.  I think that my point total is rather representative.

What does going off to get all fucked up for four days have to do with your point total?
