\o/ I know I'm late to the party, but I loved this! I think what I liked most was your depiction of Jared as the cool headed thinker and Jensen as the quick to anger sharp-tongued emotional guy. I also LOVED that you made Jensen a toppy!bottom, too many fics just have him bend over and take it. Plus, it was such a real extension of his character here. Well done!

So, just read through this and I've got to say I love it. I loved prickly Jensen and the line "fuck the mean out of him" has been replaying in my head ever since I read it. Loved the entire concept. =)

I missed this last year (I only found it now because of a link on spnstoryfinders).

Awesome story. Everything about it was wonderful--delightful world-building; lovely wordsmithing; and even though your cast of characters was large, they all felt very 3-dimensional. I think my most favorite thing about the story, though, is that you don't make Jensen have to change to find love; Jared just falls for his grumbly, cranky-pants self as is. ♥♥♥

Okay, bitchy, difficult Jensen is now officially my second favorite, right behind slutty Jensen, because DAMN!

I <3 baseball, and J2 RPS, and you have combined them beautifully. Nice work!

Lovely characterizations. Especially adored Jensen. His snarkiness and obnoxious comments were LOL funny. Awesome interpretation of a classic tale. Was also surprised by Jensen's reaction to Jared's contract specifics. It's nice to feel surprised. Excellent baseball details. I don't know the game well at all but the atmosphere felt very real and alive.

Oh, what a wonderful story! I just loved it! Especially Jensen's irascible personality that slowly softened into affection, and Jared's cheerful brattiness and dedication. I liked also that the end was not all tied up in a neat little package, but was a bit open-ended. Excellent work, my dear!

I'm not a baseball fan, but this was still so enjoyable!

Found this on a list of sports AUs and I'm so glad I did! I love the spare, no-nonsense style and the story is great. Would you mind if I made a podfic recording of this? You can find examples of my work under the "my podfics" tag at my LJ if you'd like to listen first. Also, I always tell authors not to feel obligated to dl, listen or pimp the podfic if that makes them uncomfortable or if they don't have time, etc. No strings, and no hard feelings--just let me know. :D

I know this is 3 years past the post date, but I hope you're still reading comments 'cos I loved this. I know nothing about baseball (British) but it sounds every bit as daft as cricket, and your obvious love and knowledge of the game and the players shone through. I love just little bits of character building and world building, lack of giant dramatic moments (no big I-love-you scenes, no big win-the-cup scenes) and just the gradual slow and gentle story progression.
