What is a Pinch Hitter?

A pinch hitter is someone who steps in to create a fic when the original author for an art piece drops out and fails to complete their fic. They’re the angels who help ensure that no artist who’s done their part gets left without something in return.

Anyone excepting authors who failed to complete their fics is eligible to pinch hit. Even if you can’t pinch hit, you can help us out a lot by reblogging this post for us :)

We’ve got some absolutely AMAZING art pieces up for claiming, so be sure to check them out!

How Does it Work?

If you’re willing to pinch hit, all you need to do is go here to view all the art pieces that need an author. Then just fill out the form with your preferences, and the mods will email you the info for your highest rated piece that isn’t already claimed (i do my best to keep the form up to date, but i can’t always get it immediately) and get you in touch with your artist.

What’re the Time Frame & Requirements?

Pinch hits are due May 21st. The fics need to be over 4000 words, betaed, complete and posted in full.

I Heard This Challenge Was Having Issues?

allydiareversebang is under new ownership. All previous issues, such as lack of communication and breaking of schedule, have been resolved. They will not affect pinch hitters. :)

Addie Joss*, the last pitcher to no-hit the same team twice. Joss threw 74 pitches in his October 1908 perfect game against the White Sox and then shut down the Sox again in April 1910.

Tim Lincecum threw two no-nos against the Padres in 347 days (July 13, 2013 and June 25, 2014)

* Joss died in April 1911 from meningitis and held a career record of 160-97 with a 1.89 ERA, second best ever behind “Big Ed” Walsh, 1.82. Joss holds the record for career WHIP, .97. The National Baseball Hall of Fame waived the ten playing seasons requirement for Joss in 1977 and he was elected to the Hall in 1978.

Heroes cannot be heroes without villains, but not just any ordinary ones… Which heavy hitter would be best suited for Justice League? When you’ve got a team of powerhouses, you need a significantly amped-up foe. Luckily, the DC universe will be filled with the aforementioned thanks to Suicide Squad, but even Deadshot and Joker don’t have the power and expertise to go up against the Super Friends. There have been many speculations as to who the antagonist(s) could be for the upcoming two-part movie, but here are some who deserve the limelight. As most nerds know, Doomsday is stronger than Kal-El, possessing an immeasurable level of strength and invulnerability. Of course, there’s more than one way to defeat such a being, but it takes a huge amount of resources and effort to even face this monster. Like Ultron, Doomsday disregards life, so he is a worthy opponent. Also similiar to the upcoming Avengers baddie is Brainiac, though the latter is far more menacing, posing a universal threat. Another immensely powerful being, Parallax could create a situation in which we see other heroes pitted against each other, giving viewers a pseudo-Flashpoint. This guy is much too encompassing to remain as a Green Lantern foe and should deliver a League beatdown. Obviously, Darkseid has to be included, as he is a bonafide killing machine that commands an army and has access to Omega Beams. This guy is so bad that the creators actually based him off of Adolf Hitler. Who doesn’t wanna see Hitler’s ass get whooped? Lastly, the one who has the potential to change the universe… Is Anti-Monitor, the direct cause of Crisis on Infinite Earths. Anyone powerful enough to cause Darkseid to ally with the League is just… Sheesh. Anti-Monitor could be the ultimate test for the League and a proper closing of the franchise.

Unite, by Jeff Cruz, Angelo Nardone, Drew Fitzgerald, and Royce Southerland.

context: the setting was a home-brew with steampowers. The heavy hitter was a 2 foot insane gnome in an 8 foot battle suite, he thinks he is a knight. The group also had a tefling necromancer played by one of my best friends, also one of the most terrifying person I have ever met. He was interrogating a goblin on the location of a magic item. Since he had low intimidation I said if he could articulate a threat well enough I would let the goblin be intimidated. 

Necromancer:(proceeds to give the most bone chilling speech i have ever heard, everyone at the table just stared at him in shock and horror.) 

in the silence

Gnome:…I’m a Knight!

Necromancer ooc: GODDAMIT JOE! throwing his hand up and stalking from the table.

Sports Rant!

In my quest to change some words:

Enough of the term “no-no” for no-hitters in baseball.  They’re no-hitters.  F'ing call it what it is.  That term makes me cringe, like the words moist and panties do to a girl I know.

And hey, have you ever heard of something called of a four-run homer?  It exists.  Doubt that the term has ever been used.  So the first ESPN asswipe that uses this, I’m taking full credit.

On an unrelated note, I haven’t had any alcohol today…

One's an anomaly, two's a pattern

Justin Verlander came one walk short of a perfect game. He’s got two no-nos, and when dialing down means throwing 98 mph instead of his usual 101 mph, he just might have it in him to do his legacy a solid and throw a perfect game.

Verlander possesses freakish arm strength, blowing a 100 mph fastball past Rajai Davis on his 106th pitch.

It’s easy to forget how young, or how good, Verlander is. I remember meeting him in the elevator of the Adams Mark hotel in St. Louis in 2006, a day before giving the World Series away to the Cardinals with an error-prone outing. Him, Nate Robertson and Jeremy Bonderman were all giddy goose asses, clutching a brown paper bag and snickering. He was too young to party with veteran lefty Kenny Rogers, a true nice guy despite his cameraman incident in Texas. Rogers was old enough to meet and greet fans with a nice glass of whiskey in the hotel lobby.

Verlander shook our hands and said, just a sec, I need to call my mom and tell her I’m OK. He was 23, two years removed from being the second overall pick of the 2004 draft.

Look at him now, all grown up, and still without a Cy Young. With his power fastball, a sharp curve and durability, we may have found the heir to the Ryan Express. Five more no-no’s to go and we’ve got ourselves a future Hall of Famer.
