Repost. Original post date: May 25, 2014.
Editorial Prologue: We apologize for the delay in the release of the AL Central Edition of “Spring Fling / Give Him A Ring / Leave Him Crying.” Our write-ups were completed by the morning of May 23rd; we will attach editorial comments to the write-up of any player who accomplished or experienced anything significant in the wake of the completion of writing.
We’re wrapping up May here at Sweet Nothings and Hardball with a special Spring series (contrary to what mercury readings might tell you, there is still a solid month of spring left). Indeed, as young men’s fancies turn to thoughts of love this time of year, (what with your ‘Prom’, nature’s flowering blooms, and inexplicably generous contract extensions) so shall we too embrace this season of love. We are committed to bringing you only hardest-hitting analysis and the most insightful-est of journalism, and we do so today by playing everyone’s favorite of old tavern games: From a sample of three, pick one person to ‘Date’, one to ‘Marry’, and one to ‘Kick to the Curb’. The Subjects? All 30 MLB rosters. The Objective? Give you, our favorite (ahem… only) reader, a cursory introduction to some of the players and concepts we value. You know it. You love it. It’s…
Sweet Nothings and Hardball’s “Spring Fling / Give Him A Ring / Leave Him Crying” Game!
Spring Fling: Ready to give a season to this player, but for any number of reasons, it just can’t work out long-term.
Give Him a Ring: Ready to commit to this player for at least 3 seasons.
Leave him Crying: Ready to be cold and heartless because sometimes we don’t want to be masochists anymore.
All players considered must already have accrued MLB service time (there will be prospects later… don’t you worry). Again, remember that this intended to be cursory and fun; we are both keenly aware that there are players out there other than the “household names,” but the very nature of our little game will by default limit our field to the best and brightest (or previously best and brightest) stars.
