OT Friday Thread: Tax Time Edition

All you can count on in life is death, taxes, and the Friday afternoon open thread.

Jason Smith

Its tax time (so hurry up and create some dependents!), that time of the year for Pete Rose to not pay his taxes. Seeing as how this is a stat-friendly site, I imagine most of you enjoy doing your taxes. As Bill James remarked on his cameo on "The Simpsons" - "I've made baseball as fun as doing your taxes!"

If you haven't done your taxes yet, well, what are you waiting for? Quit wasting your time on this site! The IRS means business people!

Four Deductible Questions

1. If you have or will receive a tax refund, what do you plan to do with it?

2. Some have given Yordano Ventura the nickname "Ace Ventura" despite Crooow's wishes. Others have come up with the lamer "Ventura Highway". What is the best nickname in baseball history?

3. I don't know if you're heard about this, but apparently a plane went missing in the ocean. What do you think is the most interesting unsolved mystery of the last century or so?

4. MLB announced reliever awards named after Trevor Hoffman and Mariano Rivera. What new award named after a player would you create and what talent would it recognize?

BONIFACIO: Stephen Colbert has been named David Letterman's replacement on The Late Show. Who would you have chosen as Letterman's replacement?

BONIFACIO TOO: Mad Men or Game of Thrones? Jessica Pare or Emilia Clarke?
