The Next Commissioner

There have been nine commissioners of Major League Baseball. Kenesaw, Happy, Ford, William, Bowie, Peter, Bart, Fay and Bud. Yes, we're all on a first name basis.

I get to join their august ranks. No, not as a commissioner of Major League Baseball, but as the commissioner of Gint-A-Cuffs.

I weaseled volunteered my way into the position. Beardy, in a moment of extreme exhaustion, agreed to meet my demands suggestions for compensation.

I see my role as answering questions about the rules (which are so messed up it isn't funny), making rulings on scoring, keeping the official Gint-A-Cuffs blog up to date with relevant information and finally, in early September, declaring a winner.

Kenesaw was involved in looking at payoffs with the Black Sox. I've seen Eight Men Out a few times, so I sort of understand graft. But I've never experienced it myself.

So, if any of the participants feel the need to enlighten me, you can find my want lists to the right.

I promise, as commissioner, to work in the best interests of Gint-A-Cuffs.


  1. Good luck, sir. My math skills can be uncooperative.

  2. I'll help by double checking beardy's counts for you....

  3. Hey Canuck, count my ballsack!

    One....Two....Three? WTF?
