SB Enigmatic - Riddle Me This

Either from television, cartoons, movies, or comic books most of us are familiar with Batman's deadly rival The Riddler

who is obsessed with riddles, puzzles, and word games when committing is crimes. The Riddler character's real name is Edward Nigman, clearly a derivative of the word Enigma which means difficult to interpret or understand; mysterious. Winning or making money isn't enough for him because his ego forces him to prove that his intellectually superior to his foes by out thinking them. Hence, he always gives Batman and the police clues to drive them crazy and prove his superiority. Truly enigmatic.

  5. yeah people who dont know the difference between open and modified like those who swear JB is modified when HE IS NOTTTTTTTT!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Get off JB's dick already.
    He is not all that.

    ReplyDelete
  7. He's not but he is still costing people a LEGIT championship. LT just won the nyfp league with that bullshit. All season LT did their thing with other legit modified pitchers yet when their backs were to the wall they went with the slick slinger JB. Thankfully LT lost in the semis last yr to a bunch of regular joes

    ReplyDelete
  8. i would love to see you hit vs someone of that claiber god forbid another slinger came down to throw oh man how much would LT cry then...wonder if learn to hit would still apply to that scenario...JB vs a slinger (slinger v slinger) sounds about fair well actually then again to beat LT they might not even need a slinger since last yr LT got bounced in the semis by a bunch of regular joes lol anyhow it just sucks that LT couldnt win the 'ship the legit way without JB...leave him home next yr and win it the right way...yall can do it, talented enough to do so...if not dont complain or get mad when a slinger shows up to throw against yall...wait a minute wasnt that a topic on this board rick "what's good for the goose...."
    that term fits nicely here

  9. Hey idiot what do u think LT is just John Brown???

    Backs against da wall? Were u at da games? Cause if u were u would have seen more than just JB...plus like u said we lost last year with JB so we didn't depend on JB to win, we did it as team...I guess u didn't notice anything all year...we had Lou pitch most big games this year, so how come u don't say anything about that? He won game 1 of the championship as a matter of fact it was a shut out...during da semis LOU Pitch a no hitter...we could win with Lou pitching...did u know most of this team was the bombers 3 years ago and won without JB...do u know who else is on our team? Lou probably one of the best players around, Sito a true stud who probably won the championship with his defense...yes JB is good but lawyertime is more than JB...Please learn something before u open ur dum-ass mouth...

    And lastly, my name is Anthony, one of the guys who put this team together...also not a bad player myself...I think instead of running ur mouth and being afraid of JB u should just play...look what happen last year we lost with JB b/c the regular joe smoes or what ever u called them as least just played and tried...not to mention the master batters this year that beat JB and Lou in game

    And we not like most teams afraid to play without our best which we did all playoffs

  10. Oh yea bring who u want we will play and if we lose we won't complain but I know one thing we would do and that is try...not bitch and moan like u

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh yea we pitched JB b/c he is on our team he would have pitched more if not for an injury plus just so u know I have hit against JB plenty of times and I don't run with my tail between my legs like u do I sit there and give it my all sometimes I win sometimes I lose but I don't cry like a bitch ass like u

    ReplyDelete
  12. listen ive got nothing but props for you and your team as players....what im saying is if lou 22 pitched so great then why not use him game 3/ why go to JB whom you know is sling?? say what you want but JB IS A SLINGER...you know it i know it and anyone who knows softball knows it....you can say he modifies himself but the truth of the matter is that when the runners get on and he needs to get an out out comes the ball from the side of the wrise and he can hide it all he wants when he drops down but EVERYONE can see it!!! As far as LT not complaining if a slinger gets thrown against them i doubt you guys would let that rock....if so more props to you...if any top slinger would come down to face youg guys and you let him throw then the taint on your championship wouldnt be that visible

    ReplyDelete
  13. Taint? Hahah I can see u have no class...first u give us props then have the nerve to say taint...amazing

    To answer ur stupid question we pitched JB b/c he is our ace...what team wouldn't pitch their ace if avail in a winner take all game? Answer that u idiot...

    Slinger? Complain to commissioners and umps b/c they don't seem to mind the way JB pitches...nor did the masterbatters the team we played they had class...we didnt complain when their pitcher came sidearm...we asked the ump he said it was fine and we played simple...what pitcher is not gonna try and get away with what ever the umps let him do...for gods sake any pitcher Ive ever known would try...that's what pitchers do...

    What I find funny is that u only complain if we win...why didn't complain last year when We lost with JB or two years ago when JB lost on the legends? I mean did he pitch different back then? Were those championships tainted? Or when most of us won the championship on the bombers with Rosenmiller Gainst acquit? We did complain about him and he's just as good if not better than JB

    So get who u want we wont complain as a matter of fact I'll tell u like my fab wrestler says "BRINg IT"

  14. I hit .500 Vs. JB with at least 100 lifetime AB's.
    He sucks.
    Why are we even talking about this.

    ReplyDelete
  15. good talk i respect your opinion on it and respect you even more for saying bring who you want...truth is that certain players/pitchers wouldnt be allowed in the league and that's not your fault at all. 2 years ago umps were calling Caquito illegal and the old man does nothing illegal...they were telling him this telling him that, they were "watching him" was what they told him...the league caters to certain "influencial" individuals and control who can or cant pitch in the league. You have a point in saying why not pitch your ace if you have him available considering they allow him to do whatever the hell he wants to do and everyone turns a blind eye to it....i guess if you can get away with the ball being outside your wrist then go for it...i just hope if other pitcher show up for the league next year the board allows them to play without "watching" them

    ReplyDelete
  16. I can't speak about the league and who they let in or what they allow not for me to go there...all I can is stick up for my team...JB is good very good but Trust me LT is much more than him.., even da final game was not won with just JB as Sito our SS made at least 5 great plays plus Ricky a great grab on a bomb hit by da other team plus two very good plays by 1b... Basically it was a whole team effort...don't know what u have against JB but to suggest LTs championship is tainted is totally classless on ur part...

    Now on to caquito, a great pitcher no doubt...we beat him got championship three years ago we didn't complain and two years ago when Weintraub won with we didn't suggest Weintraub championship was tainted

    Face it u are wrong

  17. JB = illegal
    other LT pitchers + not illegal

    simple as that

    look at rickys own post of "what's good for the goose is good for the gander"

  19. LT = champs

    U = loser

    I'm not sure but the way u talked about caquito u must be on Weintraub...and all I can say is at least we don't pay JB

    And if I'm wrong I'm sorry to my friends on Weintraub and they know who they are and know I mean no disrespect to them

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh yea one last thing get off JBs well u know da rest

    ReplyDelete
  21. And one thing they do know about me is I'm not afraid to face anybody which I guess u are

    ReplyDelete
  22. ha ha

    aint afraid anybody they "let" pitch in the league

    i just wish other teams went out an got big name pitchers just like JB so that way they could match up better

    i really thought you guys would leave JB alone and just win with the horses that got you to the 'ship....the guys that played all year and qualified for the playoffs (i think the league rule says 5 games--and no mention of an "injury" pardon) so 5 out of 13 necessary for qualification for playoffs-regardless of injury-would leave ur man VERY short of the 5 needed to qualify by the math i've done (with ur help as well) that lou pitched most of the gms...but youre right the league allows it so go for it i guess huh? as for not paying we can back n forth about that one but we all know pitchers get something here n there (no denying that-and to do so would be lying) ALL the big name pitchers get something....trust they do!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. For once we agree pitchers do get away with stuff that I wish they wouldn't but those are facts and we gotta accept it...now as far as JB he would have pitched more but an injury stop that so he couldn't but we would only pitched a couple times anyway...we did da same last year just pitched him a dew times during da year...but rules are rules and he played his 5 games...

    As far as what got us there it was the whole team that did...a true team effort...

    If u play in nyfp league u would know almost every position we match with team in league

    U should also know we beat caquito so like I said before "bring it"

    I know I won't be afraid and if i lose I would not bitch and moan like ur doing

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh yea y really don't read that well do u? I said Lou pitch most big games...we had Rosenmiller Shei pitch mossy games in general...and as far as ur math u should also learn how to count b/c umps are our witnesses that JB played his 5 games as well as our book come check anytime u want...one thing is a fact we don't need to cheat to win just play our game if we win great if we lost we salute the other team not bitch and moan

    Oh I do have a question for u, how did ur team do? Why so much hate? Why not go out and get a pitcher like the masterbatters did...he didn't play all their games but he qualified...

  27. Hello Anonymous,

    This is LOU22. Really simple I was hurt and could not pitch the Final Game of the Championship. I had and still have a tear in my Quad muscle. If you know me at all, you would know that I would have pitched the Final game without a doubt if I could have. JB would have played the OF or 1B.
    I pitched really well this season and yes I did Win all playoff games this year except the Final game. Game ONE of the Chip 10-0 WIN. 3 Hitter. I even warned up before the Final game, but could not go. I have played against just about every Great pitched in NY and I can say that my LT team could hang with just about all of them. JB and I have won a ton of Chips together, but we have also lost our share as well. This year's championship was a Great team effort and I am very proud of my guys. Master Batters played Fantastic in this Chip. They also had a very Good pitcher that went a litte side arm. No complaints we just played. He pitched really well, JB pitched well for One Game. Great Job this year Guys.
    LOU22

  28. no one ever question you lou...as i said u were the man who did all the heavy lifting all season long ...as for being hurt i did not know of the injury (my bad) all im saying is that JB slings and we all know it...he's not legal never was and never will be...until this league and others realize that the balance of power will never be even think about it...other teams bring regular mod pitchers and JB throws no where near that...not saying a few teams havent brought their own questionable pitchers as well (ive seen quite a few throw 9 MAN MODIFIED--thinking thats 10 MAN MODIFIED) there are blatant and obvious differences which we can argue about til the cows come home (ricky knows the rules very well you can ask him about it) im just saying people turn a blind eye to JB doing these things but if another pitcher came in and did it you will hear illegal from here to uptown!! much respect to u anthony and the other LT guys i just cant stand slingers masquerading as mod pitchers in a mod league filled will about 3-4 strong teams that can MAYBE on a good day stand a chance against a top notch slinger...
