What if I never played my first fantasy league?

What is Bartman lost his keys that day?

What if none of my pitchers went on the DL?

What if Bartolo Colon wasn't fat?

Hmmm, probably the greatest "what if" in MLB history in my mind: What if the color barrier never existed? Over half of baseball's current history occurred before Jackie Robinson played his first game. What players would be household names, legends even, that are completely unknown today?

What if Goose Gossage shaved his stache?

What is that ball never bounced off Cansecos head for a HR?

What if Chris Davis is the biggest fantasy bust of all time?

What if Kevin Quackenbush and Cal Clutterbuck ran for President and VP? -- I love the idea of a Quackenbush-Clutterbuck ticket!

What if Steve Bartman never fcked with Alou's catch or what if Alex Gonzales never fcked routine plays all in that same inning?

Yes I'm a Cubs fan in Chicago.

I think about how different it would be if you changed the dimensions of the field even a little bit. 80 feet for baselines, or 100 feet. Steals would be automatic, or impossible. What would the best hitters bat from 55 feet? .050? If that? 90 mph would be what, 105 mph? 95 would be 115ish? It's not a perfect correlation distance to speed, it's worse than that. You can really only see 90 mph for part of the way to plate, and you'd be taking 5 feet off whatever that distance is, rather than 5 feet off 60.

I wonder what would have been of Rick Ankiel had he not lost his mind on the mound.

He was "The next great Lefty"

Rookie season he was 11-7 with a 3.50 ERA/1.21 WHIP

142 ERA+

2.92 FIP

And a K/9 of 10

He might not have been Kershaw, but he might have been a guy who would currently have 200+ Wins and still be in a rotation

What if the Expos didn't trade Lee, Sizemore and Phillips in a ridiculous trade for Colon?

Probably wouldn't have helped the team stay around unfortunately, but the Nats could've been well off.
