Nothing to see here. Please disperse.
As long as Linder spells it right on the paycheck, who cares?
This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.
If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.
I've got to admit, this one bothers me too. I'm probably extra sensitive to it since I have a name that's short and not overly difficult, yet gets constantly garbled. I don't care about misspelled words so much since this isn't a grammar forum, but getting someone's name right is just a simple matter of respect. When Jimenez got DFA'ed, one of the first things I thought was "Well, at least I won't see his name getting butchered everyday any more."

Example: "There are four team's left in the playoffs." I have plenty of others, but I will refrain from ranting about grammar on a baseball message board. I am getting much better at controlling my urges to correct everything.
I don't mind being corrected. I just hope I don't make the same mistake twice. I don't know why, but I get my wording jumbled up sometimes. I have to go back and edit.
I wasn't trying to crucify anyone or call anyone an idiot, but I never understood how one can look at the scoreboard, box score, etc. every day and not realize they continually incorrectly spell a player's name.
Also, point taken in that he shouldn't be on the team to begin with, and I agree, but at least he has been playing better since coming back from the DL (even if he's just trying to showcase his talents to contending ballclubs) and he makes less than many overpaid players of the past (ala Pokey Reese).

That one is easy. Just remember that Ben Weber is like the Weber grill company. Both get lit up on a regular basis and both have one "b" in the name.Originally Posted by smith288

I agree most of the time spelling bothers me...I just don't call anyone out on it because most of the time it is my own spelling.
There is a reason God created spell check...me.
Sorry if I offend anyone by spelling names wrong...not that I don't care...just that I can't care.
"Sometimes, it's not the sexiest moves that put you over the top," Krivsky said. "It's a series of transactions that help you get there."
It does not bother me now.
What I would hate is to be a teacher now. With "internet lingo" running wild with kids, reading that garbage would be a nightmare.
I've seen Lindner (Linder) and Moseley (Mosely) messed up more here than Richie.
Will trade this space for a #1 starter.
