If you can't spell it right, use LT2 and SA.

I usually don't care, but in baseball I just can't stand to see someone repeatedly misspell Pujols's name.

Oh,

OK :-t

I prefer the correct spelling, but no BFD if you don't.

Actually, I'm totally with you on this one. Some people just need to watch "There's Something About Mary" again.

Ben Stiller: "But what about Brett Fav...ruh?"

Also, I purchased Yahoo's stattracker in a package deal with the Draft Kit (total $15.99 I think). I just figured I would give it a shot since it was cheap, but when I clicked on the full Fantasy Guru Kit it was riddled with spelling mistakes and usage errors. I'm not gonna bust anyone's cops for misspelling player names (except on a thread about spelling), but I don't think it's too much to ask that the expert content I purchased at least be proofread.

Oh, and one more,

Deuce- the E comes before the U. Some people have been confused in the past because Duce Staley doesn't use an E at all, but now that we're down to just McAllister, it seems like people ought to be able to get it right.
