Ode to Big Dome & Fantasy Udpate

Ode to Big Dome
(A Ballad for Placido Polanco)

Such grace is played with an enormous head,
Batted ball to third and the runner is dead.
Slick fielding, bat wielding, our beloved Polly,
Your big dome is quite beach-bally.
The specially stitched XXXL hats are no price,
You shave that melon, so there won't be lice.
Second stint in Philly is truly a blessing,
Your luscious noggin we wish to be caressing.
I pity your wife should she birth vaginally,
Unless the doctor can shrink that head magically.
Nevertheless, your baseball skills are bountiful,
And for this we are eternally grateful.

Fantasy Update:
Harry Kalas Cialis, Corey's team, has secured a playoff berth in the WSBGMs Phantasy League 4. In second place holding steady is Lidge Ledge Leapers, my team, with Dick Allen Thumpers (Sir Alden) hot in pursuit. The regular season ends next Sunday and then 6 lucky squads out of the 16 team league will take aim at the coveted Fantasy League gold trophy.

If you can't get enough of being in charge of team and are looking for some more fantasy action, you could always join WSBGMs football league. It's through Yahoo, league id- 357234, password- phillies. Currently sitting on 8 teams, but would like 4-6 more.

Madson has rebounded nicely. So nicely that he should have full confidence of the fans again. He's striking out a ton of batters. We need the current Madson to keep pitching this way to make October magic happen again.

With Cain on the mound tonight, I'm hoping Gload is healthy enough to play 1st.

*And no Sir Alden, I will not relent 2nd place, I want the bye week.

Get out the ACME Rocket Launcher and the ACME Catapult GM-Carson.

Hey, I'm doing very well in 4th! Get ready boys, I'm coming for the crown.

It's nice to see our team capitalizing on our oppositions errors. Now if the damn braves would just lose....

GM-Carson said...

The Gnats play us hard all the time, so it's time they give the Braves some fits too.

I have joined the fottball league as Raul's Raiders.

The team is surging and several in the pen have been doing good for a change, including Lidge.

Now a 1 game lead over Giants for Wildcard, don't look back and set sights on division.

Digging the love for Polly!

GM-Carson said...

Preserve Jon- it was your comment about his lofty batting average that brought out my creative juices on this post.

GM-Carson said...

Is Joe Blanton's contract going to end up like Adam Eaton? C'mon Jo-Blah, lets go!

GM-Carson said...

J-Roll a double away from the cycle and has 1 probably 2 at bats left in the game. There's nothing I love more than watching J-Roll produce. He's been the heart and soul of this team for a decade. Damn it feels good to have him back.

Bob D said...

Howard may be back by the weekend. When he does return the team will send Brown down till Sept 1.

Braves picked up Lee today :(

The Phils really could use a bullpen arm, come on Rube make a trade for one

GM-Carson said...

Lee could really help the Braves. He's been killing the ball since the All-Star break. However, the Phils currently have a spot in the playoffs, and that's what truly matters.

Last 10 games:
.........W L ERA S IN H ER BB K
Baez.....1 0 7.71 0 9.1 17 8 4 5
Conteras.2 0 2.08 0 8.2 10 2 4 10
Durbin...1 0 4.50 0 10.0 12 5 5 12
Herndon..1 1 7.36 0 11.0 15 9 5 7
Lidge....0 1 5.19 7 8.2 7 5 3 9
Madson...1 0 0.00 0 10.1 5 0 3 19
Romero...0 0 8.44 0 5.1 5 5 7 5

Madson has been awesome
Lidge has 7 straight scoreless games
Durbin and Contreras have been good
Baez, Herndon, & Romero have been wild and ineffective

GM-Carson said...

Phils winning 5-2, men on 1st and 2nd with 1 out in the top of the 7th and in comes Romero? WTF?!?!?!?! He better get some f'n outs for a change and not walk everyone.

GM-Carson said...

Oops, nevermind. ESPN lead us to believe it was Romero who got the nod, but it was Durbin and he worked his magic- inning ending double play.

Preserve Jon said...

Sweet! Thanks for the cred, brother!

J-Roll is J-Rollin. (I couldn't help myself, I had to use a Wheelerism.)
