Moving Into Fair Territory

And now we interrupt our ongoing political horrorshow to bring you a baseball related item …

Weird, right?

This comes from Dongwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer, who thinks bizarre stuff is overtaking the MLB. Kevin says:

"What the hell is going on this season?!?! We've already had two people who caught two foul balls at a game (with one guy doing it on consecutive pitches) this MLB season. Now we move into fair territory as this guy in Toronto catches two home runs in the same damn inning ... with a sweet one-handed snag on the second HR."

Thanks, Kevin!

This Has MERIT

In this Sunday Morning Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, the concept of merit is discussed.

Er, yep.

It's not as if America needed another dirt poor non-skilled toilet-scrubber during the Depression. We had plenty of natural born Americans of our own who needed jobs and would have done anything to get them, including scrubbing toilets. What merit did Mary Ann MacLeod have? Why should she been allowed to come here and take a job, money, a desperately needed livelihood, from an American?

Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?! you son of a toilet-scrubber?! I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!

Cubs Fan Numbskull May Not Be The Numbskull We Thought He Was

Commissioner Rube Furrow shared a Tweet that has since been taken down about a numbskull at a Cubs game who took a ball away from a kid sitting in front of him.

Except, maybe there's more to the story?

Of course,
there's always more to the story, which may explain why the original Tweeter took the original Tweet down.

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.
