SLPL '17 SANTA LECHUGA POWER LEAGUE
The Best Damn Fantasy Baseball League In the Universe!

I Always Feel Like Someone Is Watching Me ...

Joe Kelly, owner of Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox and SLPL's still-leader in the Overall Standings, once again took some time out of his overall league-leading to direct our attention to this bit of wonderfulness, "Iowa Cubs Player Is Exceptionally Talented At Being A Weirdo On-Camera." This guy is my new hero. He can't get to the Majors fast enough.

You gotta watch it a couple times before you realize what happens, but then the horror sets in. Just like my season.

He didn't expect that.

Stats, Anomalies, and What's Cool

In this week's edition of Sunday Morning WTF?!, we hear from our GoT owner who has some interesting fun facts.

Valar Morghulis owner Jeren "Skeeter" Livernois came at us recently with some interesting, WTF?! trivia: "There have now been two Major League players with the name Boog Powell, yet there has yet to be a Major Leaguer with the first name Isaac (yes, there have been a handful of Ikes, however none have gone by Isaac). Bonus Fun Fact: One of those Ikes had the given birth name of Isaac Newton. He played his career under the name of "Ike Fisher."

Fascinating, especially considering that there have been over 19,000 players in the majors.

Then again, there are only about 83,000 Isaacs in the U.S., and going by "Ike" is undeniable more cool than going by Isaac.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot … well … hmmmm … maybe it's not so WTF?! after all?

Oh, wait, that's it!

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, us, trying to make sense of statistics an anomalies and what's cool! I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!

Some Days Are Better Than Others

I wish I knew what is happening here. Though, you know, my life is probably better that I am left to ponder what is happening here.

We're Going Dark ... As In, An Eclipse Sort of Way

No, we're not going anywhere. We're talking about the Great American Solar Eclipse. Though things look as though Chicagoland will be overcast or raining when the big blot-out begins, it's still gonna be mega cool. Here's hope you are able to see it (with all the appropriate disclaimers about how you aren't supposed to look at it directly, blah, blah, blah).

Technical Difficulties

In this week's edition of Sunday Morning WTF?!, we … er … uh … ummmmmm … well …

Nope. Not going to say a word about this …

There's Only One Bob ROHRman ... Jersey!

Joe Kelly does us a favor again — sending us more of the ol' coveted blog fodder — by passing the following image along with the comment "There's only one Bob Rohrman … jersey."

Those of you not from Chicago likely don't get the reference, so here's a peak into the big, bad, grand, awesome, nifty, omnipresent world of Bob Rohrman:

Nor Wanted

Joe Kelly, owner of Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox and SLPL's leader in the Overall Standings, took some time out of his overall leading to direct our attention to a story that has since gone viral. Here it is.

The title of Joe's email was "No comment needed …"

We agree.

Except: The organist, with that little dramatic organ sting about two seconds after the ball makes contact, is the funniest thing I have heard in my lifetime. I could watch and listen to that consecutively for the next week and never tire of it.

Nacho Hero

Overall Standings leader Joe Kelly, owner of Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox, sent us this link touting the heroism of a fan who saved nachos. Impressive, sure, but we are even more impressed at the nachos delivery device deployed at Atlanta's ballpark. Check out the size of that thing. Even more impressive, you can later put that helmet on, though you should grab a few extra napkins to wipe all the excessive nachos cheese and jalapeño juice out of your hair.

How Are Things Working Out for You?

Lots and lots of trades while we were away — are you guys waiting for us to leave before making trades or is our blog fodder just so entertaining that you can't help but be distracted from making the big decisions? — but we are now up and running and all caught up.

So, how are you doing this season? Everything working out the way you had hoped?

We Are Going Dark Again

We are hitting the road — Toronto this time; I wonder of the Blue Jays are in town? — and will be without the ability to update the website until Monday morning. If you make trades, you'll have to wait until we get back for us to process them, which we will do retroactively to the date they should go into effect.

As has become our want, here's a nice video for you to enjoy until we get back.

Boog's Grandson?

Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox owner Joe Kelly, who is still the league's Overall Standings leader, sent us this link to remind us that past-MLB star Boog Powell may have reproduced … and his offspring may, too, have reproduced.
