How to Have a 3rd-and-Goal At Your Own 7-Yard-Line

In this week's edition of Sunday Morning WTF?!, we ponder this bit of head-scratchiness …

Wait around long enough and eventually something like this will happen, I suppose, but still …
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Louisiana Tech, you were already losing by 33 points … why not just let Mississippi State have six more ?! I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!

He's Running Out of Pages!

I don't understand much of what is happening, but I do understand how the, er, um, pitcher? ultimately gets his Alpha handed to him. Chadwick Walton does not relent in this very thorough Alpha-kicking.

Most HRs Ever??? WTF???

Michael Skoien, owner of Maddog's Maulers, sent us bit of interestingness and asks, "And tell me why we are all doing so well with our rosters this year??? This doesn't help."

Never Gonna Give You Up

You Had One Job. One. How Would You Like Me To Depict That For You? I'm Thinking A Finger.

In this week's edition of Sunday Morning WTF?!, we question the hiring process at this children's publishing company…

Some posts write themselves. This is one of those:

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, children's book publishing company, hiring and editor who can count to ten is beyond your capacity?! I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!

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.

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?!

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 …






Whiskey Tango Foxtrot … um … who's to yell at here? Who's to scream at, incredulously? We can't even hazard a guess. I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!

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.

You've Got to Chug that Sierra

In this week's edition of Sunday Morning WTF?!, comes courtesy of Mar-a-Lago Orange Sox owner Joe Kelly who somehow still has time leading the league to send us fun stuff like this …

As Joe says, rules are rules.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, every other minor league baseball team, why can't you all have this rule? I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!

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:

You Misread Our Marketing Materials

In this week's edition of Sunday Morning WTF?!, we ponder which of our season ticket holders brought their sheep to today's game …

Uh, guys?


Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, season ticket holders! It was Bark In the Park. Bark In the Park! Not Baaaa! In the Park! Get it straight! I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!

The Confidence of a Mediocre White Man

In this week's edition of Sunday Morning WTF?!, we watch the fever dreams of a mediocre white man come crashing to the ground — much like he came crashing to the ground — at the very moment he actually believed he was about to "win" …

Oh, hey! Let's take a look at a microcosm of every mediocre American white man ever:

Whiskey Tango Everloving Foxtrot, mediocre white guy?! Born on third base, you still just can't quietly cross home plate and then celebrate only after it's clear your run will make a difference to the outcome. Nope. You instead feel compelled to ask the world to celebrate your "accomplishments" at the very moment you are about to unknowingly lose. "That's where he belongs, right in the dirt." I mean, seriously, W?! T?! Everloving?! F?!

Baffled Together

For today's Sunday Morning WTF?!, we lament a video with nearly four million views that refuses to do what it is supposed to do, which to help us get right what says we are getting totally wrong:


Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, WhatCulture? All you needed to do was to explain the ending of 2001: A Space Odyssey to me. That's all. That's it. The other nine movies? Meh. Just explain 2001, okay? But you couldn't do that? I didn't get it, much less get it wrong, but I just sat through nine other movies to learn that you were as baffled as me? W?! T?! F?!

In A World Without Decent Fantasy Baseball...

This video is now several years old, but we still love it. So much drama! So much action! So many drunk people! Now, these knuckleheads just need to sober up ...


The key takeaway? That the Santa Lechuga Power League fills the gaping vacuum in the universe known as “decent fantasy baseball.” How could you possibly not join?

By the way, where you see the date in the video for March 23, 2011? Yeah, ignore that. Think Monday, April 3, 2017. That's when you need to have your rosters to us for this season.
