I thought Cliff Lee would have crashed and burned by now, but I can't say much bad about that; Ryan Braun has been nice.

I'm down to one closer in B.J. Ryan. I had briefly picked up Kyle Farnsworth because I thought my wintertime neighbor might get his act together and be the Tigers' closer. At least I wasn't actively using him that week.

I picked up Fernando Rodney from Detroit and he rewarded me by getting shelled a few times in his new role as the closer. I promptly tossed him back to the waiver wire.

This guy is the biggest retard in the history of Fantasy gurus.  Worse than Matthew Berry of ESPN.  He has Ervin Santana as the 40-something top starter and one-year wonder Fausto Carmona at 30.  He has Felix Hernandez above 10 pitchers who are better.  Just a complete numbnuts.  He has Paul Maholm ranked 50 spots BELOW Tom fucking Gorzellany (worst pitcher in MLB this year!).

His OF rankings are worse.  He has Alex Fucking Rios rated higher than Josh Hamilton (okay, you can say one-year wonder if you want, but we know he's not).  Alex Rios sucks.  I have him every year and I don't know how or why (this year he was drafted for me!):X

If anyone's enraged enough to torch his property, I can guide you right to his winter hunting lodge. There's even a nice public county road that serves as a property line for the north side of his property. Farnsworth does not have that fenced off. Just a few no trespassing signs.

After watching the Giants get beaten twice by Dallas and once by NE, yet winning in the playoffs, I am holding out hope that my team peaks at the right time and has the last laugh.  I got totally screwed last year as my team (IMO, the most solid team by far in our league-Posada, Pujols, Utley, Jeter, Chipper, Tori Hunter, Rios, Andruw, Beckett, Bedard, Brad Penny, Zambrano, K-Rod, Soria, etc...) tanked the last 4 weeks.  Due for a reversal this season, I hope....

Meanwhile I've been jobbing to bottom feeders the last couple weeks. I dunno, why, but my bats went dormant, though my Mod Squad pitching crew is holding its own.

At least you've never taken a 2-15 ass beating at the hands of Grog like I just did.  Brutal!  I hope to look back at that as my 14-41, 3 interception TD's the other way, home game vs. the Vikings.:D

Right now I'm up by 2 on a team with 9 slots that are DL, NA or empty. What the fuck.

Big J has 4 guys on the DL or that don't play whatsover and it's a good week for my team to hit a cumulative .173 or whatever they've been doing.  Buehrle & Jurrjens not pitching well doesn't help me make up ground either.

WTF happened to Dan Uggla?

Back in first place. Great battle for 6th place. Grog and I are almost assured of first round playoff byes unless we both totally collapse this week.

Even though my team has a great record, my starting pitching still sucks. That could kill me come playoff time.

I'm hoping to pull a NY Giants in the playoffs and exorcise my demons (named Claw and Grog).

Hoops better put up a battle because Claw will have guys ranked in the 1200s that bat .375.

In other words, my ass is probably dead.
