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


Check that. I was buried by a team with 9 guys out. Sweet.

Yeah my starting pitching still sucks. Clayton Kershaw loses two games this week and gets sent to the minors. So now I waived Kershaw and have picked up the immortal Carl Pavano. I know HBF will get a kick out of that.

If I had picked up Pavano, he'd go out and give up 11 runs in the first inning, and Girardi would just leave him in to get shelled.  He'd finish with a 133.89 ERA or something similiar with a 9.43 WHIP.

You pick him up and he'll throw a one-hit shutout.

In the playoffs, I'll probably go with three starters and the rest relievers. No sense using an iffy starter when it counts. So that means I'll never use Pavano. I'll just waive him and pick up a relief pitcher. Only way I'll keep Pavano is if he gets on a roll.

I have 3 pitchers auditioning today for spots on my playoff roster:  Scott Baker, Jair Jurrjens and Jeff Francis.  All 3 could be dumped and it wouldn't bother me.

I almost dropped Dioner Navarro for Nick Hundley but Hundley plays the Dodgers and (I forget who else) and his matchups are brutal.  I'll stay put.

Fucking JJ Putz has only done bad by me since I've gotten the bastard.  He hit Longoria, who's still out and was arguably my best and most consistent player.

Grog, I'm prepared for you this time.  No blind loyalties to my team and what they've done in the past.  I am benching Dan Haren.  He's my worst pitcher right now.  Not cutting him (so Claw can pick him up) but he's going to get splinters on his ass until he shows he can pitch again.  I am more confident in Scott Baker, Mark Buerhle and Jeff Francis right now, not to mention Brandon Morrow.

I wish Carlos Guillen would just get shut down today so I'd know to drop him.

Uuuuhhhh, don't you think you might want to put me away first before you start making public posts about your next round matchup with Grog? 

Granted, you've got a big 14-3 lead, but if I'm not mistaken, you haven't clinched anything yet.  I'll concede 8 wins (R, H, 2B, HR, RBI, AVG, OPS and CYC) and 2 ties (NH, PG) to you, but that's about it.  That still leaves 14 points up for grabs.  I have four quality starters going between today and tomorrow, each of which is a horse, each of which is capable of throwing a complete game shutout. 

Anything, as they say, can happen.

EDIT:  Hey, 1,000 posts.  Yippee for me.

DFG, with all due respect, this isn't our league last year where you and I can make any difference in what our teams do.  We set our lineup each Sunday night and hope for the best.  I am not saying I've won, but I am saying that IN THE EVENT that Grog and I play, I am prepared and not going to play stupid loyalty like I've done in the past. 

Of course, a few more "Carlos Guillens" and I'll be focusing exclusively on FB.

You're still in it, but having Rios and Rodriguez finally doing what they should has helped me immensely.  So has picking up Liriano-wow!

RP's still suck in every fashion except for the top few (Papebon, Mariano, Soria, KRod).  The rest just fuck up your BSV's, L's, ERA, WHIP.  They aren't worth it-they are relievers for a reason!

Good luck!
E

Gotcha.  Good luck to you as well. 

And I'll let you in on a little secret...I think I'm all but done in this matchup anyways.  It's gonna take a near miracle for me to pull it out.  Your offense kicked ass this week, while mine dried up like Cloris Leachman.

I think it was you or your brother-in-law who knocked me out last year so we'd be even.  You're Todd, right?

I have a lot of questions that I wish would be answered between now and tomorrow nightl, like if Guillen and Longoria have a shot at playing.  Otherwise, I am in deep shit against Grog's potent bats waking up.  They're slumping big-time and I wish I had played him this week. 
My plan is for Brandon Morrow to be the new Joba and give me what Haren is not.  He might have a better arm, believe it or not.  If it works, I'm a genius, and if not, I lose trying something new. 
I am hoping that Manny keeps in check, Matt Holiday stays asleep and GODDAMMT JETER-STOP FUCKING HITTING!  Let A-Rod and Giambi light it up, will ya?

EDIT-DFG, do you think we put too much emphasis in Fantasy Baseball on Relievers?

Actually, Todd's my b-i-l.  I'm Greg.

As far as relievers goes, I think they're necessary is FBB; I like the format in this league with saves and holds because it forces one to rethink strategy.  One strategy may be to discount relievers entirely; another strategy is to place an inordinate focus on relievers in attempt to win WHIP and ERA as well.  It's all due to each manager's personal preference, I guess.

Does Todd post on here?  I never could figure out who is who since you guys changed Team names last year to now.

No, Todd's not on this board.  He's in Boogie's league, though.

LOL @ Boogie's league. Missed the real playoffs by half a game. I was in last (12th) place. Ended up in 7th place. Suddenly my team started winning mainly because Sabathia turned his season around. It's one of those coulda, shoulda, woulda seasons. Well played league though. Everyone in that league is a serious player.

As for this league, injuries have kicked my @ss this week. Carlos Quentin and Marlon Byrd down. Ouch!! As usual, I hit the waiver wire for replacements.

Yeah, you were almost the 1980 US Hockey Team in that league...tough break.

FWIW, Todd's "Rocket Implosion" in that league.  Had a tough season, and finished in the 12th slot that you formerly occupied.
