    I want Dunn back. I think Rasc took advantage of me. I let my guard down knowing he is Canadian.
    Live and learn.

    Dunn killed me for 2 weeks and has been on my bench. Wish I started him this week.

    I took advantage of you with Encarnacion.

    Let's look at this Nemo prediction..............

    Chris Sale..............10-2 record..........2.19 ERA.......0.95 WHIP, and 98 Ks..............Should start the All Star Game for the AL.
    A+ prediction............if I do say so myself..........

    David Freese..........285 AVE..............344OBP..........36 Runs........13 HRs...........50 RBIs...........All Star this season.
    A- prediction...........if I do say so myself.........

    Brennan Boesch......owned by only 28% of fantasy teams. Batting .239..........OBP of .274...............BA doen 43 points from last season......
    D- prediction..........luckily, I released him long ago.

    These fantasy "experts" are right more than they are wrong but they are wrong more than half the time.

    SOME NOTES ABOUT THE NEXT TWO WEEKS:

    Statistics earned in the All-Star Game are not counted in scoring for Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Baseball.
    All-Star Game live stats will be displayed during the game itself, and points are displayed on your team page and in StatTracker, but these won't count toward your league scoring totals. The All-Star Game points will be cleared in an overnight update.
    Because Major League Baseball lengthened the All-Star break to four days starting with the 2012 season, Yahoo! Sports has combined the shortened week following the All-Star Game with the ensuing week. As a result, Fantasy Week 15 will run from July 9-22.
    Please consider the following with regards to the two-week Fantasy period.
    • There are no changes to your innings-pitched minimum during this Fantasy week. It is not necessary to accumulate double the innings. So if your league features a 10-inning minimum, you must accumulate a total of 10 innings over the course of the Fantasy week. It is not necessary to accumulate 20 innings.
    • If your league allows weekly roster moves and lineup changes, deadlines are not altered for this Fantasy week. Teams will be allowed to change their lineups at the midway point of the Fantasy week.
    • There are no changes to your weekly transaction limit during this Fantasy week. So if your league features a 3-transaction limit, managers will only be able to make 3 player adds via waivers or free agency during this Fantasy week.
    • Stats are cumulative for the two weeks of the matchup.
    • Stats and scoring are not reset after one week of the matchup has been completed.

    Thanks for the information.

    I know of two managers who are going to have a very tough time with the transaction limit. I won't embarrass them by mentioning, yellow highlighting, crossing out, or fake coughing their names.

    I thought it was so kind of Round to have his first two starters this week............
    Pitch 8 innings for a 12.75 ERA and 2.50 WHIP.............:)

    My pitchers needed to oblige this kindness yesterday by................
    Pitching 13 innings for an 8.78 ERA and 1.60 WHIP.............:cold:

    My solid victory has quickly turned into a house of cards.........
    He has 3 starters going today while I have squat.......

    I'm a little tired of my RP's putting up 108.3 or 54.6 ERA's for 1 inning pitched !

    So I lost 6-5, dominating pitching but my bats didn't show up.

    I got three new guys in the lineup this week, and Kemp is almost back. Also starting to play Cliff Lee now that he is off the schnide, and Halladay should be back in 2 weeks.

    I might be dangerous yet.

    Nice pickup of Youkilis. I thought about picking him up the other day, but didn't really have a spot for him in my lineup, so I decided to pass.

    Balance is being restored as top notch teams fell this week..........and Bill Laimbeer is crowned king.

    I covet this next battle against Jammer.........he holds first place with a tight rein, but I hold the hitters he fears...........

    We put together some decent stats in an epic battle back in week 6.

    I remember vividly my hitters.................40 Runs, 19 HRs, and 50 RBIs...............My guys are due...............

    Won 3 of last 4.all by large margins. The lone loss was by the narrowest of margins.

    Beat the Laimbeer's 4 in a row. Nobody else has done that...yet. But they sandbag against me in the regular season and make me pay dearly in the playoffs.

    Next week is long and I play possibly the best team in the league. He hasn't lost in 6 weeks and beat super power Jummerdummer in aclose one this week so forget the standings. I hope he doesnt pummel me as bad as the last time we met.

    During the rain delay at one point of the texas game we were tied 6-6 and I had hope to pull out the tie, but it didn't last. Its a lose, but after being down 10-1 early in the week I'm glad I was able to get it that close. I forgot to set my lineup last week, but from a quick look... it wouldn't have helped me enough to pull out the win... so onward and upward hopefully with the bill this week.
