The Catch-Up Rule: Crazy or Raeasonable?

Kevin Klinkhamer, owner of 2nd place Dongwhipped, sent us this intriguing link and says, "My initial reaction was that the catch up rule is crazy. However, as I read the full article and thought about it more...it's not that crazy of an idea." (On the downside, this link is behind a paywall and I'm not able to read it. So, whatever the proposal is apparently isn't worth my attention. Damnit. Maybe Kevin can summarize it for us?)

A Moment of Silence

In this Sunday Morning Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, an uncharacteristic moment of silence.

Still Smarting


Jim Klinkhamer (2007)

This particular member of the front offices of the Santa Lechuga Power League ate a hotdog (or two), tipped-and-drank a beer (or more), and made a toast last night during the Chicago Cubs game in tribute to former league owner Jim Klinkhamer, the most fitting thing we could think to do to honor the man.

Those closest to Jim are still smarting and in shock, as you can imagine. The outpouring of love and support has been amazing, though. A long scroll through Jim's Facebook page show just how beloved Jim was and how many lives he touched.

There are two messages from SLPL owners we wanted to share. The first came via a league trade from Deeger’s Dogs owner DJay Andersen, who wrote about the former Overall League champ: "In tribute to my friend and college roommate Jim Klinkhamer, who got me into this league and always pushed me to make quick trades. R.I.P., bud."

The second message comes from Jim's sister (in-law) Sue Klinkhamer, co-owner of Reclaiming My Time, via Facebook:



R.I.P., Jim.

Heartbroken


Jim Klinkhamer

The crew here at Santa Lechuga Power League is taking our caps off and lowering the outfield pennants today for the passing of former league owner -- and 2010 Overall Champ — Jim Klinkhamer, brother to larger-than-life owner Dan Klinkhamer, brother-in-law to owner Sue, uncle to owners Kevin Klinkhamer and Julie Pankoke, uncle-by-default to owner Aaron Pankoke, friend to many more owners in the league, dad to a batch of kids, husband, and dear, dear friend to a slew of great folks from his years on earth who are all saddened and heartbroken to hear the news of his passing.

The Santa Lechuga Power League encourages all team owners to grab a hotdog and tip a beer in Jim's honor during tonight's Cubs game. This one's for you, Jim Klinkhamer.

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!

Superior, They Say

In this Sunday Morning Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, the concept of 'superiority' is put into question.

They should really make themselves less mockable:
