Phantasy Phootball:
Don't forget, WSBGMs Phantasy Phootball draft is tonight at 8:00. If anybody has hopes of stopping my three-peat, you better be on your game tonight!

3-0 on the season. Last scheduled game on Saturday. I'll do my best to keep up the streak. (Not really sure what this entails, but I will commit myself to doing what it takes.)

One thing I noticed at the game that I hadn't really heard before was a lot of animosity towards Howard. Yes he struck out 3 times, but Dillon Gee is exactly the type of junkball pitcher that gives Howard fits. By my count he saw exactly two fastballs in his first three at-bats. Sure he's hitting .250 and strikes out a ton, but he's also got 96 ribbies (old school stat alert) and 26 dingers at the close of August. People were screaming for his head in the upper deck. Geez, give the guy a break.

Oh and Pence = Money.

I can see Mayberry starting next year.

Oh.. and I woulda stopped your 3-peat if Adrian Peterson had played in the semi's.. You could look back. I woulda crushed you in the finals. So I'm bringing it.

Hamels to the DL. Shit.

ripjgarcia said...

Really? WTF. KK is good this year though. Better to have Hamels good than pitching through BS.. at least its not Tommy John kinda stuff.

Preserve Jon said...

That shaking some of you may have felt a bit ago was from the impact of a Hunter Pence BP homerun hitting somewhere beyond CBP, not an earthquake as may have been recorded elsewhere.

Andrew said...

Hamels to DL is just procedural. He's fine and will start next week. They just want another bat through the end of this week with Rollins hurt.

GM-Carson said...

I picked Carson Palmer in the fantasy draft. I really wish I knew football like I know baseball. Dumbass.

GM-Carson said...

Stutes looks like a rookie over the past 2 months. He was great to start the year, but now he looks he doesn't belong.

Jose Contreras will have season ending elbow surgery, so don't expect any help from him.
