Wicked Weekend 13

Postby Amazinz » Fri Jul 01, 2005 1:02 pm

I was considering starting Colon vs KC all week. I mean Colon should be able to dominate right? But of course KC has owned him twice already so I was sweating the decision. Then I came to the Cafe to make my pick and saw that Mookie was pimping that match-up. That sealed the deal. Colon is going to get his ass handed to him by the Royals for the third time this year. :-]

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

My thoughts exactly.

Had to take a couple of educated gambles this week, still not happy with those rules :-[ Would've been more confident if Carpenter had a weekend start against the Rockies instead of going today.

Putting my faith in Marquis and Santos :-o

Definitely a tough week. I wound up wavering between two games I liked equally (and you know how those 50-50 decisions usually turn out... :-o )

By the way, NZF, I really can't see how having more picks leads to any kind of disadvantage...

Good luck this week! ;-D

The rules state that after week 10 you can't pick the same team twice. Therefore the more picks you have left, the more you're penalised and any advantage you've earned from picking more accurately through the competition is minimised.

Just doesn't seem fair to me but thems are the rules so just roll with it.

Well I have advanced again, but dont expect to hear from my ex-roomate bronxxbomber. He's far too lazy and careless to make a pick, Oh and he's also at sleepaway camp.
