That's cool. I got 12.

I think anything over 17 would be very impressive.

It was basically like starring in a bukkake video with Charlie the Tuna.

I got 4 out of 86 (Canseco, Bonds, Palmeiro, Clemens) and only recognized names of 4 of the other 82. That tells you what ignoring baseball since 1994 does....who the hell are all those people.

Shit being from Texas means 6 of them are ostensibly a layup. Obviously the Big 3 are also a layup so you should start with a baseline score of 9 for posters on this site (except for Bnds and Peabody).

Spoiler: show
The three that fucked me up the most were

Baltimore over Boston
Phoenix over Philadelphia
Memphis over Miami

I did eventually manage to bang through them but it cost me dearly on time

I got 13 but it really should have been 11 because when I typed in one last name 3 came up.

I was amazed by how many ultra mega scrubs were named in that report I guess I had clearly never paid that much attention to it.

I got to Raleigh, which I could not come up with, and that's with El Paso TOTALLY killing me...which is kind of embarrassing.

And that's shocking about Atlanta when you consider there's over 5 million people in the metro area.

It's that whole City vs. MSA thing

Metro Atlanta - 5.4 mil
City of Atlanta - .52 mil

Greater Austin - 1.6 mil
City of Austin - .76 mil

I really think they should base it on MSA vs. City

Got 15, but that was after reading all the posts.

I think Boston is in the same category as Atlanta; one of the bigger MSA's if I'm not mistaken but actual population is smaller than what most people would think.
