Re: Pen Pals

I've got it. After three days, my brain has finally disgorged a snappy pun for this one: Ticker Shock. In a sentence: "As a Zimmerman owner, I'm pretty much through with Ticker Shock this season. When I see that the Nats got bombed in one of his starts, I pretty much just assume it was Hanrahan. Som...

Pen Pals

I'm trying to come up with an appropriately punny phrase for the opposite of a Ticker Tease. You see, I'm carrying Adam Wainwright on my team, and when I looked at the Friday scoreboard yesterday morning and saw that the Cards had taken an 11-4 drubbing, my nether regions puckered briefly in prepara...

Re: Votto

On a scale of 1 to 10, Votto's vagina pain right now is like that scene from Se7en. Check your head, Joey.

Re: You're a sport, Grey...

This is true, and that's just the point. In retrospect, I suppose there is a good reason my forays into various "service industries" never ended well, and fantasy baseball is definitely a service industry. Even Behrens answers the troglodytes from time to time. Your "reach out and choke" threshold (...

You're a sport, Grey...

...for fielding, with neither irony nor pith, some of the fungo liners that come at you in this forum. I don't play in some sadomasochistic 20-team AL-only league either, but honestly, if you've got to ask whether Jay Bruce or Russell Martin is worth a waiver grab, you're as much of a mouth-breather...

Votto!

Goddamit, that's what I get for going out for dinner with the wife. I'm waiting to see if Votto is in the starting lineup before activating him, but by the time I get home the guy I've slotted in at Util (Marlon fucking Byrd) has already "started" his game (though he was not actually in the starting...

Re: Votto

I'm getting worried that somehow the flu is contagious within my fantasy team. First Ziegler, and now this. I think Dukes was sick for a couple of days, as well.

Re: Trevor Cahill

Hmmm...looks like the Tigers were wise to this, and stacked their lineup with bench/platoon lefties - Josh Anderson, Jeff Larish and the switch-hitting Ramon Santiago, specifically. Not surprisingly, these three guys hit Cahill hard. Detroit offensive stats from the innings Cahill pitched: C Grander...

Re: Jorge De La Rosa

So you did. Well, if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then consider this a fluffing.

Jorge De La Rosa

The next big thing? 45 Ks vs. 16 walks in 42.2 innings is impressive, and his last two starts have been ridiculous. He's had terrible luck in the W/L column this season, taking two losses in well-pitched games where his opposition (Haren and then Johnson) was just a bit better, and getting no decisi...
