Would love help other players out.

Just acquired Grich already leveled him up but don't necessarily know if I want to waste resources on his skills. I'm thinking he's probably not going to be a huge factor in WoH and I already have Jackie with imo a better skill set at 2nd base. I have a platoon of 540 legend rhb with skills that are more dependable such as Minnie, Pendleton, and Bill the catcher (although he is a one skill player for all intents and purposes) for DH. I hate to recycle a 560 legend I just don't know how he fits on my team. I wish I could gift these players I don't need to people who are in need of players that can make a difference for them on their teams.

    Cowardly Hooligan

    A Screenplay by Shoveitupyoenis2

    EXT. CENTRAL PARK, NEW YORK - AFTERNOON

    Energetic Writer PROF COOZ POLANCO is arguing with modest Electrician MR EDDIE EBIGGZ. COOZ tries to hug EDDIE but he shakes him off.

    COOZ
    Please Eddie, don't leave me.

    EDDIE
    I'm sorry Cooz, but I'm looking for somebody a bit more brave. Somebody who faces his fears head on, instead of running away.

    COOZ
    I am such a person!

    EDDIE frowns.

    EDDIE
    I'm sorry, Cooz. I just don't feel excited by this relationship anymore.

    EDDIE leaves.

    COOZ sits down, looking defeated.

    Moments later, delightful Plumber LORD FULL MONTE barges in looking flustered.

    COOZ
    Goodness, Full! Is everything okay?

    FULL
    I'm afraid not.

    COOZ
    What is it? Don't keep me in suspense...

    FULL
    It's ... a hooligan ... I saw an evil hooligan eat a bunch of children!

    COOZ
    Defenseless children?

    FULL
    Yes, defenseless children!

    COOZ
    Bloomin' heck, Full! We've got to do something.

    FULL
    I agree, but I wouldn't know where to start.

    COOZ
    You can start by telling me where this happened.

    FULL
    I was...

    FULL fans himself and begins to wheeze.

    COOZ
    Focus Full, focus! Where did it happen?

    FULL
    Vasquez Rocks, California! That's right - Vasquez Rocks, California!

    COOZ springs up and begins to run.


    EXT. A ROAD - CONTINUOUS

    COOZ rushes along the street, followed by FULL. They take a short cut through some back gardens, jumping fences along the way.


    EXT. VASQUEZ ROCKS, CALIFORNIA - SHORTLY AFTER

    BIG VICKY a cowardly hooligan terrorises two children.

    COOZ, closely followed by FULL, rushes towards BIG, but suddenly stops in his tracks.

    FULL
    What is is? What's the matter?

    COOZ
    That's not just any old hooligan, that's Big Vicky!

    FULL
    Who's Big Vicky?

    COOZ
    Who's Big Vicky? Who's Big Vicky? Only the most cowardly hooligan in the universe!

    FULL
    Blinkin' knickers, Cooz! We're going to need some help if we're going to stop the most cowardly hooligan in the universe!

    COOZ
    You can say that again.

    FULL
    Blinkin' knickers, Cooz! We're going to need some help if we're going to stop the most cowardly hooligan in the universe!

    COOZ
    I'm going to need razors, lots of razors.

    Big turns and sees Cooz and Full. He grins an evil grin.

    BIG
    Cooz Polanco, we meet again.

    FULL
    You've met?

    COOZ
    Yes. It was a long, long time ago...

    EXT. A PARK - BACK IN TIME

    A young COOZ is sitting in a park listening to some indie music, when suddenly a dark shadow casts over him.

    He looks up and sees BIG. He takes off his headphones.

    BIG
    Would you like some wine gums?

    COOZ's eyes light up, but then he studies BIG more closely, and looks uneasy.

    COOZ
    I don't know, you look kind of cowardly.

    BIG
    Me? No. I'm not cowardly. I'm the least cowardly hooligan in the world.

    COOZ
    Wait, you're a hooligan?

    COOZ runs away, screaming.


    EXT. VASQUEZ ROCKS, CALIFORNIA - PRESENT DAY

    BIG
    You were a coward then, and you are a coward now.

    FULL
    (To COOZ) You ran away?

    COOZ
    (To FULL) I was a young child. What was I supposed to do?

    COOZ turns to BIG.

    COOZ
    I may have run away from you then, but I won't run away this time!

    COOZ runs away.

    He turns back and shouts.

    COOZ
    I mean, I am running away, but I'll be back - with razors.

    BIG
    I'm not scared of you.

    COOZ
    You should be.


    INT. SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE - LATER THAT DAY

    COOZ and FULL walk around searching for something.

    COOZ
    I feel sure I left my razors somewhere around here.

    FULL
    Are you sure? It does seem like an odd place to keep deadly razors.

    COOZ
    You know nothing Full Monte.

    FULL
    We've been searching for ages. I really don't think they're here.

    Suddenly, BIG appears, holding a pair of razors.

    BIG
    Looking for something?

    FULL
    Crikey, Cooz, he's got your razors.

    COOZ
    Tell me something I don't already know!

    FULL
    The earth's circumference at the equator is about 40,075 km.

    COOZ
    I know that already!

    FULL
    I pickle my earwax and keep it in a jar under my bed.

    BIG
    (appalled) Dude!

    While BIG is looking at FULL with disgust, COOZ lunges forward and grabs his deadly razors. He wields them, triumphantly.

    COOZ
    Prepare to die, you cowardly carrot!

    BIG
    No please! All I did was eat a bunch of children!

    EDDIE enters, unseen by any of the others.

    COOZ
    I cannot tolerate that kind of behaviour! Those children were defenceless! Well now they have a defender - and that's me! Cooz Polanco defender of innocent children.

    BIG
    Don't hurt me! Please!

    COOZ
    Give me one good reason why I shouldn't use these razors on you right away!

    BIG
    Because Cooz, I am your father.

    COOZ looks stunned for a few moments, but then collects himself.

    COOZ
    No you're not!

    BIG
    Ah well, it had to be worth a try.

    BIG tries to grab the razors but COOZ dodges out of the way.

    COOZ
    Who's the daddy now? Huh? Huh?

    Unexpectedly, BIG slumps to the ground.

    FULL
    Did he just faint?

    COOZ
    I think so. Well that's disappointing. I was rather hoping for a more dramatic conclusion, involving my deadly razors.

    COOZ crouches over BIG's body.

    FULL
    Be careful, Cooz. It could be a trick.

    COOZ
    No, it's not a trick. It appears that... It would seem... Big Vicky is dead!

    COOZ
    What?

    COOZ
    Yes, it appears that I scared him to death.

    FULL claps his hands.

    FULL
    So your razors did save the day, after all.

    EDDIE steps forward.

    EDDIE
    Is it true? Did you kill the cowardly hooligan?

    COOZ
    Eddie how long have you been...?

    EDDIE puts his arm around COOZ.

    EDDIE
    Long enough.

    COOZ
    Then you saw it for yourself. I killed Big Vicky.

    EDDIE
    Then the children are safe?

    COOZ
    It does seem that way!

    A crowd of vulnerable children enter, looking relived.

    EDDIE
    You are their hero.

    The children bow to COOZ.

    COOZ
    There is no need to bow to me. I seek no worship. The knowledge that Big Vicky will never eat children ever again, is enough for me.

    EDDIE
    You are humble as well as brave!

    One of the children passes COOZ a mystical necklace

    EDDIE
    I think they want you to have it, as a symbol of their gratitude.

    COOZ
    I couldn't possibly.

    Pause.

    COOZ
    Well, if you insist.

    COOZ takes the necklace.

    COOZ
    Thank you.

    The children bow their heads once more, and leave.

    COOZ turns to EDDIE.

    COOZ
    Does this mean you want me back?

    EDDIE
    Oh, Cooz, of course I want you back!

    COOZ smiles for a few seconds, but then looks defiant.

    COOZ
    Well you can't have me.

    EDDIE
    WHAT?

    COOZ
    You had no faith in me. You had to see my scare a hooligan to death before you would believe in me. I don't want a lover like that.

    EDDIE
    But...

    COOZ
    Please leave. I want to spend time with the one person who stayed with me through thick and thin - my best friend, Full.

    FULL grins.

    EDDIE
    But...

    FULL
    You heard the gentleman. Now be off with you. Skidaddle! Shoo! 

    EDDIE
    Cooz?

    COOZ
    I'm sorry Eddie, but I think you shouldskidaddle.

    EDDIE leaves.

    FULL turns to COOZ.

    FULL
    Did you mean that? You know ... that I'm your best friend?

    COOZ
    Of course you are!

    The two walk off arm in arm.

    Suddenly FULL stops.

    FULL
    When I said I pickle my earwax and keep it in a jar under my bed, you know I was just trying to distract the hooligan don't you?

    @ShoveItUpYoenis2 bro, I'm a production lead and producer for my church... screenplay was slightly odd but at the same time curiously entertaining.

    Lmaoooo this shit was pure gold dude. I'm not even ashamed to say that I just got lost for 5 minutes reading that. Was wondering wtf the point was until I got to like the 2nd paragraph and scroll down to see how long it was, then i knew i was in for something good. You need to work on it a bit before it'd be good enough to make into a movie though. I heard @CanadaCubs has some experience as a writer, he even boasts about one of his scripts being turned into a major blockbuster film back in the day, should hit him up
