Stupid Blogger deleted everything I'd written earlier tonight with this post.
I hope you read it then, because I have no way to repost the original material.
Just so you're not completely shut out here, I held a little impromptu MLB Showdown tournament tonight. I thought I'd update this hopelessly lost post with how these guys fared.
Harmon Killebrew is relegated to pinch-hit duties and didn't see action in the tournament.
The fact that a guy like him rides the bench should tell you how much of an MLB Showdown collection I've amassed over the years.
Gerald Laird was on the championship-winning squad.
He smacked a couple of hits over his three games. He also allowed just one stolen base during the tournament. To Lou Brock.
I guess he can be forgiven for that.
Craig Wilson was his usual mashing self, lacing two doubles and a few singles in two games before his squad was eliminated in the semifinals.
He drove in three during a 10-1 rout in the first round.
Rheal Cormier saw just 2/3 of an inning, allowing one hit and no runs.
His team was eliminated in the first round.
Arthur Rhodes pitched one scoreless inning in a first-round loss.
Kevin Gregg fared the worst out of this post's MLB Showdown subjects.
He gave up three runs in his two innings, picking up the loss in his team's contest.
Travis Harper, meanwhile, put out his team's fire by pitching 1 2/3 innings of perfect baseball.
Tim Spooneybarger pitched in two of his team's three games, allowing two hits and no runs in the process.
His squad lost in the championship to Gerald Laird and his upstart lineup.
The title of this card pretty much sums up my mood right now, thanks to stupid Blogger.
I'm glad this post triggered a bit of a personal MLB Showdown revival, though.
