Writer's Block: Fantasy Sports

Imagine you manage a coven of baseball-playing vampires. The Cullen family is really strong this year and you want to bring in a ringer. Which currently active MLB baseball player do you sire?

W. T. F.

Seriously. What does that even MEAN?

Edit: I take it back, LJ has imploded into such a wonderful bag of raaage at this writer's block. Even the guys' "Friends only" post on his LJ is full of ANGERRR.

I thought this comment someone made summed it up beautifully: "I think the fact that this question made it onto Writer's Block constitutes an EPIC WIN. My hat's off to you for successfully trolling ALL OF LJ."

Calm down, dear, it's only a commercial!

XDDD A ringer in baseball is someone who can just get up there and hit the ball and score points. The MBL is the Major Baseball League.

Thanks for the attempt to help, but I don't even know the basics of baseball. Way back in school a classmate once asked the PE teacher who replied: 'Baseball is a game that only Americans are capable of understanding the rules of.' American TV shows inform me, that it's about hitting a tennis ball with a piece of wood, catching it in a lather glove and running in circles. And that's all I know. (You don't have to explain, I can live with that lack of knowledge perfectly fine. Even sports obsessed people here don't give a damn about baseball.)

Oh! Oh! It's like rounders! :D

They play it in Japan, too. ;) I think it's like the national sport, or something. O_o

I don't think I've ever even heard of rounders. (Which might just be a language thing, though.)

XDD Yes. Baseball, invented in America, Japan's national sport. They go fucking BANANAS over some baseball.

XD That makes it LESS cryptic, I guess. ;) Although I still don't really get where the vampires come in, aside from a forced construct to allow for a crappy "Writers' block" thing...

Wouldn't it be disallowed to have a team of vampires anyway, in the same way drugs are disallowed? I guess it'd have to be vampires-only, in which case it'd be a PRETTY SMALL LEAGUE.

...I'm not feeling very inspired by these "Writers' Block" prompts, lately. ¬_¬
