This is what pisses me off.
Rotoworld: Jose Bautista went 3-for-4 with a double and solo home run in Toronto's 2-0 win over the Twins on Friday. Bautista also drew a walk, his major-league leading 34th. If you're still doubting the Blue Jays' slugging right fielder, it may be time to take up a new sport


You see, i play NL only. As a matter of fact my first game of roto was NL over a decade ago. Knowing that, do you have any friggin idea how many times i've added, and dropped, Jose Bautista over the last 6 or 7 years?!? Im guessing its close to 30 times combined over a half decade!! Jose friggin Bautista. I know you man. i friggin know you! I've watched you *uck up roto rosters 100 ways to monday. This aint you. Something aint right. Where theres smoke, ya know ..

I think its obvious i don't own Bautista .. .. . now.

grrrr

I feel like lasorda, in that link below!

thats what it smells like ..

slimfast.

Chris Jaffe, Anniversaries
* 10,000 days since Cole Hamels born
* 1940 Jimmie Foxx hits arguably the longest home run in the history of Comiskey Park, as it clears the left field roof.
* 1965 Carl Yastrzemski hits for the cycle, going 5-for-5 with two home runs. He sets personal bests for total bases (14) and extra base hits (4). He also gets five RBI
* 1967 Mickey Mantle becomes only the sixth member of the 500 home run club. Two months later, Eddie Mathews joins him.
* 1978 Dave Kingman of the Cubs hits three home runs in one game and gets eight RBI on the day. A three-run blast in the 15th is the highlight. Or rather, it’s the highlight of the game. After the game, the real highlight takes place when a reporter asks Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda what he thought of Kingman’s performance on the day. His response (which can be heard here at the 1:25 mark in all its profanity-laced, not-safe-for-work glory):
* 1983 Ben Oglivie hits three home runs in one game for the third time in his career as Brewers beat Red Sox 8-7 in 10 innings. His third homer tied it 6-6 in the bottom of the ninth
* 2000 Sammy Sosa gets five hits, Eric Young steals five bases, and Henry Rodriguez tallies seven RBI—all for the Cubs, and the team still loses

And is Anyone trotting Jurrjens out there today vs. the Phills?

On 1 hand he's been pitching well, on the other, the Phills have been on a tear...

Sitting: Beckett. As good as he's been, you have to be something special to get the start in an @NYY matchup.

Just traded for David Wright and Aubrey Huff ... and I'm hoping that mid-May is when they start picking things up. I'm suddenly a fan of poorly hitting teams in the NL.

The first 12 straight retired for Jurrjens.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

Anibal is working on another absolutely terrific start. He has been lights out lately.

Wasn't good two starts ago @STL, but 3 out of his last 5 starts including today have been top notch.

I'm wondering Anibal Sanchez vs Scott Baker. Any opinions?

Sanchez vs. Baker for the rest of the year? I'd take Sanchez against the NL.
