Spring Fling / Give Him a Ring / Leave Him Crying: NL East Edition

Finally. Belatedly. Past-waiver-trade-deadline-ishly. Kinda-sorta-almost-Octobery. We rise from the ooze of June Swoons, the Heart of Hell from which July stabs at thee, and the autumnal sunlight that signals pigskin is here in a meaningful way to pick, from a sample of three, one to ‘Date’, one to ‘Marry’, and one to ‘Kick to the Curb’. The Subjects? All 30 MLB rosters.  The Objective? To provide you with a cursory introduction to some of the players and concepts we value… and hate. You know it. You love it. It’s…

Sweet Nothings and Hardball’s “Spring Summer Fall 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 probably won’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.

Players must have accrued MLB service time this season to qualify as entrants.

Spring Fling / Give Him a Ring / Leave Him Crying: NL West Edition

Repost. Original post date: May 19, 2014.

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…

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.
