The old boards 


Playing around with a web archive...

BaseballBoards

Fanhome

NYFO

Some familiar faces.  Anyone recognize old names?  I was there, but I can't remember my previous alias(es) (or when I picked up my current one).

Two separate threads on NYFO on acquiring Colon in 2002...over 11 years ago.  Pretty funny.

Damn, you can't read tangotiger's post because every post has been deleted on the old forums. Would have been nice to read his thoughts from all the way back then.

His articles are much more nitty-gritty math than a fangraphs piece.

The "This off-season is slow" thread cracks me up.

Thankfully, neither are deceased.....Chico's around the Knick boards, if I recall.  Paco's been busy with other ventures and obligations.

You may be thinking about interestedobserver.  I believe he passed within the last calendar year or so; R.I.P.

Unlike the Laffey's and Schwinden's of the Met world, thankfully - we only got 1 Hinchliffe start in 2001.  biggrin

Oh, I know where to find him........it's just a matter of whether or not he'll hop onto his horse to ride back to the board.

I thought cokemachineglow turned into shhaggy, I could be wrong, though...

I know he returned with a different username.

I thought cmg was much meaner than shhaggy?  Although, I guess he could have just matured. 

Mulder unti recently and only BnG Broke Bad.

Sorry, I had to do it.  tongue

I don't really recall CMG's posting style, so I apologize to shhaggy in advance if I was wrong and that was offensive or hurtful...

I just know he had come back under some other name at some point...

I was definitely on NYFO as far back as the late 90s/early 2000s. I remember we used to have discussions about/with Todd Pratt posting there. However, the pages NYMeth cited to were during my lost years (2002-2004), when I was in law school. I remember nothing then.

I think ShynePo is GStacks.  I might be wrong.
