No Apologies Needed

Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox owner Joe Kelly took some time off from his leading the freakin' league to submit this fun story, "Minor League GM Apologizes For Razzing Tim Tebow." The worst part? All the apologizing. The best part? Razzing Tim Tebow! Duh. Joe made note: "I think this technically falls under #LOLMETS."

The Confidence of a Mediocre White Man

In this week's edition of Sunday Morning WTF?!, we watch the fever dreams of a mediocre white man come crashing to the ground — much like he came crashing to the ground — at the very moment he actually believed he was about to "win" …

Oh, hey! Let's take a look at a microcosm of every mediocre American white man ever:

Whiskey Tango Everloving Foxtrot, mediocre white guy?! Born on third base, you still just can't quietly cross home plate and then celebrate only after it's clear your run will make a difference to the outcome. Nope. You instead feel compelled to ask the world to celebrate your "accomplishments" at the very moment you are about to unknowingly lose. "That's where he belongs, right in the dirt." I mean, seriously, W?! T?! Everloving?! F?!

See Also: The Doctrine of Impossibility

Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox owner Joe Kelly sent us this bit of fun. It's funny because, you know, mascots giving the bird to fans is funnier than hell.

Except.

Um, well, folks. This is all a bit of an overreaction since it is freakin' impossible for Mr. Met to flip off fans since, well, hello, Mr. Met only has four fricken' fingers. (A favorite podcast covers the case well here starting at the 25:25 mark.)

  • Trout, Mike 10-DL
  • Salazar, Danny 10-DL
  • Freeman, Freddie 10-DL

Don't you know that they are brining you down?

We Are Likely Going Dark

We are headed to Denver, CO, today and will likely be unable to update standings and stats. If for some reason we are able to update the site, it will likely be later in the day each day. All should be back to normal by Saturday morning. Be nice to each other.

POS HOFer Jim Bunning Dies

In this week's edition of Sunday Morning WTF?!, we celebrate the death of a Hall of Famer while lamenting last season's lack of an HOF champ…

On Friday night Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Bunning died, which means, Yay!, we will have a HOF Champ this season! LetsPlayCatch owner Weston Livernois and Farmer, Greene, and Romine owner Vince Livernois each scored 100 points while Get with the Programmer owner Alec Puente grabbed 75 points.

Here's a reminder of how points are awarded for the HOF Death Pool: Here's how points are awarded:

Points are earned by subtracting the reported age of the dirt-napper at the time of his death (rounded down to the most-recent birthday) from 100 and multiplying the result by 5. So: An 80-year-old would get 100-80=20*5=100 points. A 40-year-old would get 100-40=60*5=300 points.


In this instance, Bunning, aged 85, earned 100-85=15*5=75 points.

And here's how the Magic Number came into play to get Vince and Weston an extra 25 points:

For the HOF Death Pool, the team with the Magic Number closest to the Date-of-Death (DoD) will get an extra 25 points. … Note: More than one team can be awarded the extra points if their Magic Numbers are equidistant to the DoD. So, if Bob dies on the 15th and one team has 14 and another has 16, both teams will get the 25 extra points.


In this instance, Bunning died on the 26th; Vince has a Magic Number of 25 and Weston has 27.

And with that, Whiskey Tango Everloving Foxtrot, 2016 season, you couldn't give us at least one choice Hall of Fame death so that we could award a champ last season? I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!

As a side note: As bleeding heart liberals, we totally understand where I'm Too Old for this Sh*t co-owner Sue Klinkhamer is coming from in this Facebook exchange:

When Sea Lions Attack!!!

In this week's edition of Sunday Morning WTF?!, we listen in on a conversation a sea lion has with a mackerel shortly after trying to treat the tourist girl like a dog's chew toy …

"Hey, look," he says, "maybe I wasn't able to keep the girl, but for my efforts at least I got a nifty pair of new sunglasses. These will go great with my beard."
Sea lion grabs young girl off a pier.
Whiskey Tango Everloving Foxtrot, Nature, you can't just let sea lions go on being the big, dorky, lazy, loud, entertaining dogs of our oceans anymore?! I mean, seriously, W?! T?! Everloving?! F?!

A Different Tactic

Buster Poser owner Joe Livernois replaced four-tenths of his hitting roster yesterday and said:

I've had it with these brain-dead sluggers. Let's give finesse, average and power a chance.


Finesse and average … in a power league … hmmm … well, this will be interesting. Tell us how that works out for you.

We Are Back

We came back to a wave of trades from owners trying to drop players who have recently landed on the DL. Maddog's Maulers owner Mike Skoien commented:

Players are dropping like flies this year! May not have a full roster by All Star Break! I blame climate change, Russian hackers and/or George Bush, plus the false news in the media!


No one is feeling the pain more than Deeger's Dogs owner DJay Andersen, who traded for Freddie Freeman one day before Freeman was put on the DL. DJay promptly used his final paid trade to drop Freeman. It's been that type of season already.
