"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."
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.
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.
This is a few days old, but found it interesting after the recent Yankee-Cubs "K-fest". Would be interesting to look at this for other major league teams as well.
If someone does the legwork on this, please forward it along.
We have also decided to revive a league favorite, which former SLPL owner Scott “Scoot Bigs” Allen shared with us way back in ’11. Scott said that it is a tradition in his country of origin to celebrate Mother’s Day by dancing around a scooter. We didn’t believe him until we dug up this video on the Interwebs. (BTW, Scoot’s the one wearing jorts.)
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, fantasy baseball season, why do you treat me so poorly? Why do you hate me so? I made the turn on Opening Day, such hope, such wonder, such enthusiasms. And then … that. That right there. Bam. Why do you want to Foxtrot me again and again and again and again and again and again and again, an endless loop of Foxtrotting? It's only May and I feel as though you're doing everything in your power to make me hate life, and then hate it again and again and again and again and again and again and again. Seriously? W?! T?! F?!
Time to clean house on NY Mets players as their training/conditioning staff seems to have taken a total leave of absence and is thus wreaking havoc on their roster after just a month of the season. Or, to quote one of them, "we don't need no stinking MRI's"….
Deegers Dogs owner DJay Andersen is taking a more wry, less peeved approach to the Noah drop:
Paxton is way easier to spell and his lat muscle works.
Dongwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer, meanwhile, is letting his lifetime Mets fandom get the show through when dropping Noah from his SLPL roster:
Foxtrot the Baseball Gods this season...can't even enjoy this shit past May 1st!
We hear you, Kevin. The trades are coming fast and furious this season.
Dear PR (Pedregoso Pos): Hunch time…. I want to switch out Adam Jones and replace him with Giancarlo Stanton with my virgin trade as team owner.
I know I’m carrying some slow starters in my HR crowd, but will stick with the rest for now, including my sentimental choice, Jose Abreu, who got his first two today as the AL Central first place White Sox won their 6th in a row. I’m regretting Schwarber, but am not ready to ditch him yet, as the Cubs hit better when the ivy is fully in leaf.
It’s tempting to go after Judge or Thames but I’m betting the former will cool off very soon and the latter will be suspended for drug use. I missed dumping Miguel Cabrera when he went on the DL, but the Sox-Tigers may be rained out tomorrow and MC is due back Tuesday and that would mean he’d miss just one more game, so I’ll save the trade. Then he’ll need to pick up his pace. It was a risk to pick Encarnacion given how awful the Tribe usually does in the free agent market, but he’s coming to life.
Being a negligent owner, I thought I had picked Bumgarner but I guess I don’t need to trade a pitcher who’s not even on my team. Too bad about his injury, though.
Thanks for enduring my rambling, but please register my trade. Gracias, Imperial Leader!
What we just witnessed was the best trade submission this season. Hell, maybe of any season.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Ray Brennan, where they hell have you been? You couldn't submit your "ramblings," which we call astute, entertaining analysis, once a week or so? Seriously? W?! T?! F?!
But today's WTF?! doesn't go to Wallygator, who actually made a valiant effort to help the kid. Instead, check out the dude in the white shirt sitting in front of him. That has to be about the weakest, sorriest, non-beer-holding foul ball effort I have ever witnessed. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, front-row-sitting, weak-sauce, pathetic white guy? You couldn't stand up and lean back to catch the foul ball? You make me sad to share a species with you. Seriously? W?! T?! F?!
