    Don't you hate when that happens? That kind of thing drives me nuts when I do that. But you really have no way of knowing.

    You should be glad you are not playing my Opponent. His high powered offense already has six runs, four homers and seven RBIs and he is hitting .530 and we are only halfway through the first day. I feel like I am in the playoffs on a Monday against "you know who" !!!

    My opponent usually has horrendous pitching. But I will bet dollars to donuts he throws a couple of one hitters and a perfect game to compliment them. That would make it a very long week.

    It's just the first day back, even Whifffff has a chance at redemption against Rascoe.

    Better on your bench than in your opponent's lineup....at least that is what Junior tells me when I do something stupid...

    I have to hand it to Baseball Team. his team was brilliant.

    With games still going his pitching is perfect.

    My guys played well but his team has already totaled:

    Runs-10
    Home runs-6
    RBI-11
    Average-.576
    ObP-.641

    He is on pace to hit an incredible 60 Home Runs this match!

    Other than some new reliever imploding (I don't think he did anything like that until I picked him up last week) my team played really well. Nothing I can do about it but admire the sterling performance. I can't even be mad.

    Random. The fantasy gods start rolling those dice and you just never know what to expect, do you? It is what it is! ;-)


    By the way , I won't be going on vacation this week. Funny, my offense would easily be up 5-1 if I were playing nemo. Darn!

    Enjoyed your post Darth. Don't worry...........you still have the extended week to get back at Baseball Time.

    I did check your numbers and I think you're confused when comparing your scores to mine.
    I figured I'd check cause I thought my guys did pretty good for at least one day.

    You are leading me in Runs scored and Stolen bases......but I've got you in the rest of the hitting categories. so it's 4-2 Nemo leads so far. :)

    Pitching gives me a 4-0 lead with both of us having a save and a hold. so it's 8-2 nemo leads so far :)

    Yep, you're right. I looked at Jummers scores by mistake. Must have been my tears were distorting my vision. :_( But I would STILL much rather be playing you.

    I figure all of the teams currently in the middle of the pack can afford one more blowout loss. I would hate to use mine so early. You better save yours until you play ME! You will need it! ;-)

    I can't wait. But I guess I had better focus on mu current match first, huh?

    All the matches are blowouts after one day...........which means nothin.
    We both have tough matches next week also as you face Bezeach........and I get the amazing Baseball Time........

    We both get a cupcake the following week though as you get Whifffffffffff, and I get Nill Laimbeer.

    Win or lose............I always look forward to playing you...........:)

    Actually, you will probably do well against Mr. Baseball Time. He has been really hot overall lately, but usually after a team explodes like he is doing against me, it seems to me that the law of averages catches up with them the following week. Same thing happens when they are really lousy.

    I honestly was not looking forward to this particular matchup. I was just hoping to get 5-7 categories, and I am still hoping it happens. I still like my team and We will fight until the end... Of the regular season...no matter what happens from now until then. I probably shouldn't say this but I plan to just roll over during the consolation round if I am there. I think the NIT is nonsense and I don't think it hurts anyone for me to quit there***.



    ***Disclaimer: HOWEVER, IF I run into YOU there, nemo, I will scratch and clasand do whatever it takes to win! LOL! :p

    I usually lose on trades, but Edwin Encarnacion has been pure win. That might be the best trade I have ever made.

    With Matt Kemp coming back, if Halladay can find some form, and hopefully Cliff Lee gets his act together, I can be dangerous in this league. I have played most of the season on the wrong end of injuries and hot streaks.

    My opponent sucks. In fact, I will bet anything that his batting average drops out of the .500's today. Why... I wouldn't be surprised at all if he drops to a sorry sub-.425 today. Plus no way he hits 6 homers again. If he even hits a meager 4 today I will eat my hat.

    I've got this one in the bag, baby!













    Excuse me... But... Could somebody please pass me the ketchup?

    Additional Thinking out loud...

    *Not that this is something new to me, but I haven't exactly had any good luck come my way in this league. But you know what...looking at the facts...the raw numbers of my players and the executive decisions made on MY end this season...no wonder I don't have a top team... Hell.. I don't DESERVE to be a top team!!!! :-0

    You guys need to quit picking on The Whiffff. If it weren't for his generous contributions to the player pool, all of our teams would go down a couple of notches in the talent department. ;)

    Hey guys,

    I know we've had our differences at times. But we have a serious problem. We are only half of the way through our 2nd day of the week but we need to really work together to save face.


    STEALS total:

    Laimbeer - 8.

    The rest of us- 7


    That just isn't right.


    Oh...edit...

    Home Runs:

    Baseball Team and Microwaves -12

    The rest of us-11

    you didn't make that trade ! I made that tirade.
    your trade was just a tease to see if you could find a sucker. all you did was set the hook.
    I just wanted to see how abusive you could be, and you bit, hook, line and sinker !
    What great genius on my part.
