Hey

No rage comic this week, I had the bare bones of an idea but it's not fully formed yet. Maybe next week. }:-)
I do have this picture to share though........

Image

ALL YOUR NOSE BELONG TO BRANDON MORROW?

Casper Wells, who had his streak of four home runs in four straight games ended, left the game Wednesday in the sixth after being hit in the face by a pitch from Morrow
Advice: The 97-mph fastball caromed off the tip his nose. Blood poured out as the trainer examined him. X-rays were negative.

:-o


This week I did maybe the hardest thing I've had to do in fantasy sports: I traded Albert Pujols.
Have you had the pleasure of doing this before? (Or trading peak Bonds or whoever was #1 back in the dark ages ;-7 )
In hindsight how did you fare? Feel guilty? Overjoyed?

Today's Games

On this day, 18 August
1587: Virginia Dare, granddaughter of governor John White of the Colony of Roanoke, becomes the first English child born in the Americas.
1920: The Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution is ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage. (27 years after New Zealand, who were first. ;-7 :-b )
1966: The first pictures of earth taken from moon orbit were sent back to the U.S.
1990: The first shots were fired by the U.S. in the Persian Gulf Crisis when a U.S. frigate fired rounds across the bow of an Iraqi oil tanker. (No way, an oil tanker? How subtle :-D )

Music....AC/DC crank it loud (Melbourne was even uglier in the '70s is that possible) and some '70s pop

Cool picture. Matt Cain's first start for my team helped lower my ERA 4 points, picking me up 2.5 points in the standings.

1. 114.5
2. 106
3. 101.5
4. 98

Carsten Charles tonight. Please get off the schnide, big guy.

I guess this can go here, not really big news.
Mike Jacobs has been suspended.
Mike Jacobs has been suspended 50 games for testing positive for HGH.
According to Ken Davidoff of New York Newsday, Jacobs is believed to be the first North American athlete to test positive for HGH. Not something you want to be remembered for. The 30-year-old has spent the entire season with Triple-A Colorado Springs in the Rockies' organization, batting .298/.376/.534 with 23 homers, 97 RBI and a .910 OPS over 495 plate appearances.

I didn't even know they were testing for HGH. doesn't it take blood test? is this something only in the minors?
I guess you can't blame Jacobs. he looked promising in his rookie season, but he never really had much except for power. maybe the reason, was he was using something.

Jacobs stated:
"I immediately stopped a couple of days later after being tested. Taking it was one of the worst decisions I could have ever made, one for which I take full responsibility.''


Great timing :-/
