Re: Nukececum

The guys over at McCovey Chronicles call Lincecum "The Enchanter." All of the Monty Python fans out there get it!

Ryan blows another one.

Get it? Get it? His first name is Robert! Seriously though, folks, here's Ryan's line from today: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 3 ER, 0 SO. His ERA now stands at 21.60 on the season. An admittedly short one for him, consisting of a mere two relief appearances, but, hey, handcuff time? I'm dropping one of my scrubbie...

Kevin Gregg is making my teeth ache.

To quote the inestimable Gob Bluth, COME ON!

In other news, Villanueva vultured a win for me while Gregg was doing his best to lose his job and cripple my fantasy team, so hey, life, right?

Re: Marcus Thames or Nick Johnson as bench man extraordinaire?

I plagiarized that chart. It's actually page 35 from Tender Buttons.

Which brings me to another point. I want to start seeing more Gertrude Stein jokes on this website. Or else.

Marcus Thames or Nick Johnson as bench man extraordinaire?

I waited an hour too long to drop Thames for Fowler, so now I'm stuck debating between Thames and Nick Johnson to fill out a bench spot. To help you guys help me decide, I made a nice little chart below: Marcus Thames PROS * Power potential. * Neat name. * Not white. CONS * OBP. * Randomness of play...

Re: Upton or Maybin?

I want to see a fantasy baseball team that only features players with accented vowels. You're off to a good start. Time to make some phone calls, though - those anglophones are clogging up the unaccentedvowelpaths.

Re: Gordon Beckham

Per RotoWire: CHI-A 3/21/2009 Beckham is likely headed to Triple-A with Chris Getz named Chicago's starting second baseman, the Chicago Tribune reports. Beckham is hitting 9-for-35 (.257) with two home runs this spring, but the 2008 first-round pick realistically needs some time at Triple-A. He shou...

15-team mixed 5x5 roto - input requested.

5x5 roto, except we use OBP instead of BA, because, hey, walks! 5 bench spots, 7 pitchers of any hue, and, blissfully, only one catcher. Unlimited daily transactions are permitted. I'm currently sporting an assortment of maybe-closers on my bench. I'm aiming to grab Nick Johnson off of waivers at th...
