I lost my fantasy week because...

My school starts thursday :-o But on the bright side we get out May 28th or so.

As for the catagories, I think I'm going to start making random ratios, such as foul balls/HRs or contract amount/speed to first. Maybe bat size/hair length... :-?

The only possible benefit I can see to it is that it probably regulates teams' IP numbers in H2H. Maybe the commish got burned by a guy who deftly skewed his H2H IPs so that he could get max benefit from them based upon league opponents.

IDK... I've never played categorical, so I can't be certain that even happens, but that's my best "Devil's Advocate" impression.

You forgot how many seeds a player can fit in their mouth. I'd draft Mench in the first round. He has to have a large mouth to take up some of that space called his head.

That's fouls off shins...
;-7 :-D :-D

Do you get a bonus if you actually break your shin a la Jermaine Dye? Wait... That was Dye who did that, right?

EDIT: No, no! It was Terrance Long, wasn't it?


That was Dye last year. ;-D


That was Dye 4 years ago... :-? :-o 8-o

This is weird with all these schools starting now. I don't even start college which usually starts earlier than high school until like September 4th :-o

Thanks, cause if you didn't, I was going to. :-D

It was vs NYY in the playoffs when he was in Oakland (as was Johnny Damon still, I believe, along with Giambi, Tejada... what a talented team), and it looked pretty nasty when it happened, and by the look on him, you could tell it didn't tickle :-o

I'm so old! :~(

I saw the Terrance Long part and had to think twice before saying for sure it was Dye, then I got the "when" part wrong. :-o

Getting old stinks! :~(

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
