And the Winner Is….

Parachat. Somehow we got 72 votes although there's no way in hell we've had 72 different people go through the chat room. Fraud!!! The good news is that we were able to embed the chat into our web design which makes us happy. What also makes us happy is if you go to the chat page, you'll notice right below the "Connect" button a link that says "Free User Name Registration". If you guys wouldn't mind taking a moment and registering your nicknames it would help. Basically go through their registration process and then everytime you enter Parachat, enter with whatever nickname you registered and it'll ask you for a password once the page loads up. Sweet and simple! If you prefer the floaty window version of Parachat, that's still available. Once you enter the site, there's a button at the bottom that has four arrows pointing to each corner of the box. Click that and you get the popup window version. The only problem I've encountered so far is that once I enter Parachat, it won't let me minimize Firefox. Can't have everything I suppose. TCR donate The final order of business is the annoying ads. We certainly don't want to take your money, but if we could get about fifteen to twenty of you to donate $5 a piece (we need $75 total), once Paypal skims off the top, we'll have enough for the advanced room which eliminates the ads and gives some administration features. You can of course donate just to show your appreciation for the site and all amounts are welcome. Donations of $100 or more get you a date with Transmission. $500 or more you get a happy ending.

whats the point of registering a name?

no one can steal your nickname and pretend to be you and if we get the paid version then with the admin controls I can boot the troublemakers.

You certainly don't have to....

I'll give you a few bucks.

The homer dolphin lives on!

~dolphin~

If we don't get the $75 bucks (or reasonably close) by the weekend, I BELIEVE I can refund your money.

But I could be wrong about that....

i don't mind registering (I already did), I was just trying to figure out the benefit of it.

i will send some cash - it is worth not having ads.

~Yell1~

This may be the happiest day of my life.

Donation is on its way.

thanks guys, you're all being more than generous

Donation made. I mostly lurk, but you guys do great work. Keep it up!

And be sure to tell us the total amount this fund drive raises over the next several days. :-)

Donation coming soon. TCR League money coming soon, too.

Soon = 1, 2 days.

BTW, I was totally stoked to donate $100, but I have this rule against Tranny dates.

/someone had to say it ;-)

oh yeah, finally listened to that tune you sent me jacos, funny stuff. Is there an Internet link somewhere so I can let the crowd know in the Friday Notes. Uploading it and all is kind of a pain...

Anyone else getting a green screen with audio on non-Mosaic MLB.tv?

And be sure to tell us the total amount this fund drive raises over the next several days.

Well if my plan works I'll be owning a small Caribbean island and AZ Phil will be running the joint. :)

MLB.tv problem fixed. Nevermind.

Why buy an island when you can buy a historic NL franchise?

Priorities, priorities...

Donation made, although I don't think I qualify for the date.

Been pretty much a lurker for the last year or two, but now that I find myself checking in daily I guess it's finally time to contribute a bit. A donation is on it's way. Hope to run into you guys in the chat room sometime soon...

I hate how easily the Twins score runs.

BB.
Strikeout.
Funniest stolen base I've seen in a while (you'll see it in Sportscenter -- Jason Tyner literally slid and crawled to second base. He was lucky Alberto Castillo's throw was awful (he threw from his knees, Pudge style)
Texas leaguer to right, Tyner scores.

100 and 500!?!?!?!

When you called me, Rob, you said 1000 and 5000!!!!!!!

Harrumph.

You do realize, that any amount of money that you raise beyond 75, I will attribute to my enormous sex-appeal.

How appropriate is it that a Chicago-related vote has more votes registered than possible voters.....

90/10 split is pretty fair pimp/prostitute economics...so I'm told.

sweet Broxton struck out the side against Milwaukee, now if they could only come back and take the lead to get him the win it would make for a good fantasy night.

Dropping $500 to the TCR fund would also make for a good fantasy night.

Dan Wheeler and Brad Lidge, two of the game's best relievers, get pummeled on back to back nights. That's not a good fantasy night.

meh...Cordero gets a gift strike call to end the game.

Well, the Brewers are 2-0. The Pirates are an out away from 2-0. The Cards and Astros are both headed for 0-2.

HA! Korey followed by Bynum vs Joe Nathan tonight. Gotta love ex-Cubs.

Sosa got his first hit...single

nice: who's chatting now:

2Naughty2Sweet, Anaya, AngelIsMe, Aniday, badsanta, Bissy, Devar, Erich_, feelingnaughty, FISTYBOY, frisky, K9, LITTLESTAR, lovetogodown, marijuana, nikhil79, Nom, Nonsense, Parachat_Romeo, sepp, sexxysuemarie, SirLunchaLot, SUPERSTUD, switpari, WhateverDamnit, WhiteEagle

Pujols coming up as the tying run vs Heilman

where did that list come from kjk?

i tried to sign up as FISTBOY, but ALAS!

aw thanks....our chat isn't advertised though on their site like geesee was so no worries.

i sent a blast of "artillery" across your bow, but ALAS! it was only a welcome message ....

*giggle-man*

yeah, forgot I had that open actually. Bummer I missed it.

funds transferred from super-secret swiss bank account. transmission better be wearing something skimpy ...

Rob G-
I was just sent the attachment, not sure where it came from.

thnx....I'll figure a way to upload it.

ah nevermind, I found it online...

bricks and ivy radio

Go Rockies youngsters! Tulowitzki double to right to tie the game, Iannetta single to left to win it.

I'm really starting to like that group, TG. They might not be the class of that division this year.. but just wait around a couple years.

Once O'Dowd finally found a plan and stuck to it, it's paying off. He's finally building the right team for playing at altitude.

Yo trans guy, how did you fix your mlb.tv? just curios.

[...] If you know of any other lists, feel free to mention them in the comments. Also, don’t forget about our parachat/donation drive if you can spare a few bucks. [...]

Just made my donation. I also mostly lurk around here, but I love the writing and have resolved to chat/participate/chill-out more with the community starting this season.

I feel so disenfranchised.

Glad to have ya, DeeJ, hope to hear more from ya in the future!

  • Cubs have no spark and no life. Pretty boring to watch these days.

  • I thought trips to Miami were supposed to be fun. This one sucked.

    The bottom half of the bullpen now turns close games into blowout losses. Not good.

    Once Fowler went to the DL, the team went into the tank. Wonder if he'll get any love this offseason? Probably not.

  • 6IP, 2ER. The last one scored because of another botched Zobrist DP turn.

    And now, a bad throw by KB. Sloppy.

  • What is it with Hammel always starting well and sucking after a couple months?

    The E-Man 2 hours 31 min ago view
  • Ahhh...sad. Lke a few of you here, I saw him play during the '69-'71 seasons. He was the "hot Zobrist" for the club in August/September of '69 while everyone else was fizzling out...

  • I predict: "They will play hard and if they give the same effort every day, they'll win a lot of games."

  • There's some BA is missing too, here's all signing bonus BA doesn't have some:

    -6 Hockin $241,000 (slot price), 7 Cruz $75,000 (saved $110,00), 8 Ridlings $120,000 (saved $53,800), 9 Robinson $30,000 (saved $132,300), so far the Cubs have saved an extra $297,100

  • per Muscat...
    Zobrist (2B), Hayward (CF), Bryant (3B), Rizzo, Contreras (LF), Montero, Russell, Coghlan (RF), Hammel

  • Also -- despite losing 6 of their last 10, the Cubs picked up a game on both STL and PIT during that period. Weird, given that they swept PIT and were swept by STL.

    billybucks 6 hours 6 min ago view
  • Also, I'd like to know if there are numbers to back up my suspicion that there are a lot more fast starts than late June romps. This seems like a time where everybody not named Willson Contreras is looking a little tired and/or banged up a bit.

    For once, the Cubs got off to a fast start. Seems like I've been waiting for that for 50 years.Everybody is really gunning for this team, too. It's their playoffs.

  • He reminds me of a little of a young guy currently on the Cubs' DL, who is also tank-like in appearance.

  • Yep...sort of. Matheny says Rosenthal will no longer pitch the 9th, and they will mix/match Oh, Siegrist and Broxton.

  • Duane Underwood now 0-5 with a 5.44 ERA for Tenn. Urp. Warren not sharp at Iowa tonight. When will Cease and Hudson be ready?

    On a positive note, Jiminez with his 10th HR tonight. He has a .924 OPS -- the only player in the league with an OPS over .900. Leads the lead in 2B, SLG and OPS, tied for the league lead in HR and 3rd in Avg. Nice!
