This is the time of the season when, if your team isn’t in the hunt for the pennant (fantasy team, real team, it doesn’t matter), baseball can get a little, well, boring. No close races to really care about yet, just a whole bunch of games already played and quite a few still to go, and, well, can you really blame some players for being bored with the whole thing?

If these people are bored, we need only remind them of the pending demise of NotGraphs and the treacherous Francophile manning the gallows to raise their passions and fill them with a murderous rage. #KeepNotGraphs

I tried to do exactly that, but when asked for references of what notgraphs actually is, I made the mistake of providing them with Cistulli’s last fifty or so articles.

The reaction worsened.

Those look like yawns, but actually they are a primal scream used to summons a hoard.

Better a hoard than a horde!

(though I could certainly use some treasure right now, as my baseball career never really took off)

Ah, touche. Though this could be the way MLBers call for their pay check.

Especially the ones I’ve whored out to the highest bidding team.
