5/31 Venting, Cheering, Jo Jo and Gee Gee.

Postby kimchi_chigae » Tue May 31, 2011 4:27 am

Jo Jo Reyes has finally won a game. Most importantly, we won't have to hear about his 28 games winless streak anymore. His winless streak has to be one of the most useless "records" talked about in a while. I was hoping we would have already passed the point of using Wins to measure how good a pitcher has been, but we still have ways to go. If Reyes was 0-28, maybe we would have something to talk about, but I believe he was 0-13. John Danks will be there in a week or two. And if you are in a 10 team league asking who the heck Jo Jo Reyes is, don't worry, it's not a big deal.

Looks like the Mets have found something in Dillon Gee. 7IP last night, only 5 hits, no walks and 8Ks. He looks like a decent fantasy option with the right matchup. Personally, I think Dillon Gee is one of the worst things that has happened in baseball this year. Everytime I see his name on the box score, I have to say "Gee Gee Gee Gee, baby baby baby, Gee Gee Gee Gee". If you know what I am talking about, you must also suffer from the same syndrome. If you don't have a clue, watch this and enter the wonderful world of K-pop. Speaking Korean is not required to have K-pop songs stuck in your head. You may also be overwhelmed with cuteness, so watch with moderation. :-D

Meanwhile, Jose Canseco declares his love to Lady Gaga via twitter.

@josecanseco I love lady gaga wish I could meet her. would marry her in a second


@josecanseco I am her night in baseball armor


You go, big guy. ;-D

They're all playing righties so it's pretty much a toss up. I would probably sit Hosmer since he's the rookie and Piniero keeps the ball on the ground.

I have 3 teams and the only starter I have tomorrow is Jerry Garcia. What's not to love about the A's offense, the A's park and run support. At least if you're spot starting against them.

Mighty Max against Minny? Aw hell yeah.

IPK against Florida? Let's get it on!

Morrow against Cleveland? Uh...pass.

Trotting Mat Latos @ ATL, which will probably be the day Dan Uggla remembers how to hit... :-C
Also Theodore Lilly vs COL, which will likely end poorly since the Dodgers are so awful... :-C
And finally Erik Bedard vs BAL, in a game where his arm will probably fall off and be used as a BP bat... :-C

Anibal vs IPK should be a fun match-up to watch. This dead team in our league has anibal and Hamels sitting on the bench the whole season. what a waste. :-P

so.. yesterday my team of:

Mike Napoli
Prince Fielder
Kelly Johnson
Jose Reyes
Evan Longoria
Billy Butler
Jay Bruce
Drew Stubbs
Michael Morse
Alex Gordon
Eric Hosmer

netted me 12R, 8HR, 17 RBI and a 1.802 OPS. ;-D

I've never seen an offensive day like that before.

not to mention having Bartolo and Bumgarner pitching as well. :-°

I think my opponent is in for a rough week.
