Slyde receives his DVDs.

Slyde is the 2006 Most Valuable Commenter winner, which is supposed to get him a copy of the 1975 World Series DVDs. Rumor has it that those DVDs will be in the mail any day now.

Update 9/23/06: Slyde has received the DVDs. He has three days to preview them for quality issues and return them to the store with a receipt, if unsatisfied.

How does one get to be the Most Valuable Commenter winner, you ask? Well, it starts with the realization that people believe whatever they read on the internet if it is in table or graph format. And then you just go from there. Plus, paying a few readers off here and there doesn't hurt either.

Slyde has a Utility Belt and is not afraid to use it.

Slyde is also a natural leader. After hearing the "you're not the boss of me" posturing from dissidents on Red Reporter Day, he promptly handed out the tickets. The malcontents in the crowd, suddenly in charge of their own destiny, grumbled momentarily, then simply followed him to the HOF:

Slyde joined the Red Reporter fray with this comment railing on Eric Milton:

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but…
I know it's quibbling, but A-Rod hit 57 in 2002. I would disagree that home runs will be down this year. Players may not be as juiced, but you can bet that if MLB can do anything to make their players look better in the face of steroids they will. I imagine they will find some way to massage the home run numbers up this season, in order to try to legitimize the past few seasons. If they can say, "Look, our players are still hitting home runs even with a more publicized steroid policy," it would be less of a black eye on the league.

I don't think that Milton will give up any more home runs than he did last season since Citizen's Park was more of a launching pad than GABP (it increased home runs by 13% compared to GABP's 5% increase). That being said, he could still give up 40 long balls, and that isn't good in any park.

Red Reporter is easy to manipulate.
