SANTA LECHUGA POWER LEAGUE '18


The Best Damn Fantasy Baseball League In the Universe!

28 Teams Jump Ahead In All-Star Standings

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.

Four Things for the 4th

First for the 4th, Happy 4th of July!

Pasted Graphic

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:

Two Foul Balls. Again.

In this Sunday Morning Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, we wonder what's in the water (or beer) …

By way of Dongwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer in the Twitterverse (catch him at @kpklink78), we got a message saying "Not on consecutive pitches like the guy in Oakland, but still unbelievable this has occurred twice in one half of a season."


Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?! foul ball hitting hitters, can't you find somewhere else in the stadium to hit your foul balls, like, I don't know, maybe to literally anybody else in the stadium?! I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!

Father's Day? Sure, Let's Quote a Father

In this Sunday Morning Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, we ponder the topsy-turviness of the world …

It's a topsy-turvy world when we quote a priest, especially on Father's Day, but, I mean, he is a father. And he speaks truth. Read his whole Twitter thread below. Enjoy the other Tweets while you're at it.

Anyway, idiots, all the spineless and cowardly GOP senators and representatives who are allowing this to happen are complete complete and total idiots. So, too, is every single person who deludes themselves into thinking they hold any moral high ground while still supporting these heinous idiots in this administration who are creating concentration camps for children of desperate people seeking asylum. Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?! you absolute Foxtrotting, lowlife imbeciles. Seriously, W?! T?! F?!
