Two Umpires Suspended After Teaming Up To Make Worst Call In History

Commissioner Rube Furrow sends us this bit of "Huh?!" from the Mexican league. With all the time Ulises Domínguez Solís and Rodolfo Pastrana Tejeda will have on their hands while suspended, maybe they can do Mexico's version of The Referee Pitman Show. What? You haven't seen The Referee Pitman Show?! You must watch it now. It reminds me of those guys from the Mexican league who called that a check swing.

Vince Livernois Crowned 2018 All-Star Champ (Assuming We Tracked Things Correctly)

2018 All Star

He got the Home Run Derby Points. He got the Judge, Trout, and Springer HR points. He got the Sale, Severino, and Scherzer K points. And though his hitters struck out five times and his pitchers gave up a dong, those losses weren't too much fo keep Vince Livernois and his Citizen Inane from winning the 2018 All-Star Championship in the Santa Lechuga Power League, the first official championship awarded for the 2018 season.* And, man, what an All-Star Game! Ten total HRs and 23 total strikeouts Man. For his win, Vince pulls a cool 200 clams out of the coffers and the adoration of 35 other owners who wish they could have won 200 cool clams. (Since in the end it may be more than $200, depending on league trading activity, we will be delivered Vince's winnings at the end of the season.) Congratulations to Vince Livernois!

*This assumes we didn't make any mistakes. Which is to say, we may have messed up some of the math here since we had to manually enter each of those ten home runs and 23 strikeouts for every team in the league. If we made any mistakes, please notify us ASAP so that we can make corrections. You will find our tracking under the All-Star Stats tab in our
boffo spreadsheet!

28 Teams Jump Ahead In All-Star Standings

UMXVNJZfuw1q0EAQ9Jz9vTlER9JTHL2FOu112RECUsVAJQ9qx8NdCULv0JhHd9EVCg=h350-r

Twenty-eight teams took an early 250-point lead in the All-Star standings, which raises the question: "How the ever-loving eff do only 28 SLPL teams have Bryce Harper?!" Sure, he's not leading the league in HRs and he strikes out at an incredibly uncomfortable rate — Christ, is it possible he has 102 Ks already?!?! — but he's still a net positive of +127 so far this season, so, you know, he has that going for him. Oh, and the 2018 Derby trophy.

Anyway.

Who am I to talk? I'm sitting in third place in La División Culantro.

More
All-Star fun Tuesday night, after which will will crown our first championship of the season and hand out a $200 prize.

Good luck!

By the way, we're traveling tomorrow, which means we may not be able to announce the winner and update the website until Thursday morning. Sorry about that, folks.

The All-Star Break Is Here!

2018 All Star

If you are unfamiliar, or just don't remember, here are the rules for the SLPL’s All-Star Championship, which will be crowned at the conclusion of the All-Star game Tuesday night:

How do I score points for the All-Star Standings?
During the Home Run Derby...

  • If a player on your roster wins the All-Star Home Run Derby, your team picks up 250 points

During the All-Star Game...
  • Hitters earn 150 points for every home run hit
  • Hitters lose 25 points for every K
  • Pitchers earn 25 points for every K
  • Pitchers lose 75 points for every homer surrendered

The team with the most combined points — Home Run Derby points plus All-Star Game points — will win the All-Star Championship.

BTW, points earned in this category are allocated exclusively to the All-Star Standings and are not allocated to the Overall Standings.

First up? Tonight's
Home Run Derby, worth 250 points.

Four Things for the 4th

First for the 4th, Happy 4th of July!

Second for the 4th, as is our want and tradition, below is our favorite 4th of July video, one we love a whole bunch but really love because of this lyric: “I wrote a poem on a dog biscuit | And your dog refused to look at it | So I got drunk and looked at the Empire State Building | It was no bigger than a nickel …” Check this out:






Third for the 4th, here is SLPL Commissioner Rube Furrow (aka, Joe Livernois) giving it his best while conducting a rousing rendition of "Stars and Stripes Forever" with the Monterey Bay Symphony back in 2009:






Fourth for the 4th, we love this crowd-sourced video:

Two Foul Balls. Again.

In this Sunday Morning Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, we wonder what's in the water (or beer) …

By way of Dongwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer in the Twitterverse (catch him at @kpklink78), we got a message saying "Not on consecutive pitches like the guy in Oakland, but still unbelievable this has occurred twice in one half of a season."


Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?! foul ball hitting hitters, can't you find somewhere else in the stadium to hit your foul balls, like, I don't know, maybe to literally anybody else in the stadium?! I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!
