Nice try, Gamingboy. Shame this didn't get posted until EIGHT FRIGGIN' O'CLOCK PM.

I'm sorry, I submitted it LAST NIGHT... but it didn't go up until now.

So, I've sent in the Sunday one... hopefully that will work.

King Felix goes for his second win (as does Clayton Kershaw)

King Felix lost. Kershaw threw 7 scoreless innings for the win. So far this season, he is 2-0, ERA of 0.00, 16 innings pitched, 16 ks, 1 walk, 6 hits allowed. The only home run associated with him was the one he hit to give the Dodgers the lead in the 8th on opening day.

Pretty good start to the season.

Pretty sure Esoteric understood that (plus we can see the timestamp in the intro) and was directing his annoyance at those who have the power to approve submissions.

Exactly right.

Don't you have the power to approve your own submissions?

To what group does Repoz belong? God Incarnate?

I'm a lowly Primate, which can't be right since I didn't show up here until about 2007.

Who else besides Repoz and Greater Jim has the power to approve things these days? I assume Dan used to but no longer does so. Maybe a couple other people should be given the ability so things can get approved in a more timely manner? Preferably including someone who tends to be on at late hours since that seems to normally be a big empty area for new things appearing.

I love that the Dodgers can spend $250 million and still start at least two shitty no-name players per game. Go Blue!

just hit up repoz on facebook to get it quickly posted

"Editor-in-Chief", apparently. I agree with Jim - if Gamingboy and others who frequently submit topics don't have approval power, perhaps they should be given it.
