    How disappointing. I was hoping this would be a fun game we could play, but instead it's just some guy pimping his blog.

    I just had a Shirley Ellis flashback.
    It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.

    We could make it a game. Her ya go.... I played in three decades, but the majority of my career was during the 80s. I played for seven different teams, two NL, 5 AL. I was an all star, and played in (and won) one World Series. I am... _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ .


    Now, just guess letters of the alphabet, and I'll throw 'em into the proper slots. Just like hangman.

    I'll give you another clue with each correctly guessed letter, seeing as we're sort of making this up on the fly. You have scored an 'E', so I'll let this fact be known...the player in question had two 30+ homer seasons.

    _ _ _ _ E

    I see that I've been beaten to the answer. I feel like I should've gotten it. Good job, Muncus Agruncus.

    This guy pitched for both Ohio teams but had his best years with two other teams. He won between 100 and 150 games. He once won an ERA crown with a 1:1 K to BB ratio.

    Got an E? Just to be sure, this is still 80s themed, right?

    I'm going to jump on your generous clue and say it's John Denny. It was a very good selection though. While I wait for your verification, I'll be thinking up another one.

    You are correct.

    Which clue was generous?

    I should have said 'clues'. All of them together was what helped. Anyway....

    Here are some clues...This guy spent a nine-year career (5 years in the 80s) with the same team. He played in one all-star game.

    Yeah, I eventually caught on. Would that be considered spamming?
