10% Down & 90% To Go

Postby rotoquest » Sun Apr 22, 2012 8:04 am

Ok, so after today there is still a whole lot of baseball to be played, but the start to the season has been unremarkable by some, but brilliant by others. Most performances have fallen in line with preseason expectations, some have gone beyond those expectations, while still others have fallen markedly short. Some notables that are in no particular order:

Pujols is still without a homerun
LA Angels and Boston in last place in their divisions
Jeter playing like a younger version of himself
Ethier’s resurgence
Willingham playing well beyond his ADP
Washington’s supreme SP rotaion
Boston has the worst bullpen in the league and trades for Marlon Byrd

Please post some observations that you feel are notable.

- Matt Kemp is in fact a god amongst men.
- Matt Moore forgot how to throw strikes
- Briain Matusz still sucks.
- Chris Sale and Danny Duffy throw hard as ^#@^
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Closers are always impossible to predict but the carnage this year has been absurd.
There are a few things with the New York Yankees that never change. That's pride, tradition, and most of all, we have the greatest fans in the world. -Derek Jeter, 9/21/08 -- last words from old Yankee Stadium

A baseball god has no use for steroids. Matt Kemp laughs at your disbelief.

Pretty sure people would have said the exact same thing about Braunto before November, but that is for another thread :-b

This is also the least reliable 10% so I don't put all that much faith into what has happened so far. Another couple weeks and my opinions of players will really start to change.

how about a few facts:

1. Curtis Granderson took batting practice this morning.
There were no survivors.

2. 10% of the baseball diamond is covered by dirt.
The other 90% is covered by Curtis Granderson.

3. Curtis Granderson eats batting donuts for breakfast.

4. Matt Kemp once quit baseball to date a pop star for 1 year.
After that season, he touched Curtis Granderson's bat.

5. No matter who your father is, Curtis Granderson is your daddy.

6. Curtis Granderson's teammates refer to him as "All Day".
The ladies refer to him as "All Night".

7. "I" comes before "E", except after "C".
Unless you are Curtis Granderson.

8. Curtis Granderson home runs are worth 25 rbi.
He always carries the entire team on his back.

9. Curtis Granderson once scored 5 times in a single night.
Then he came to the park for a baseball game.

10. Reggie Jackson refers to Curtis Granderson as "Mr. Whenever The Hell He Wants"

11. Curtis Granderson once let Babe Ruth build him a house.

12. The Grandy Man can.

13. Curtis Granderson was the best man at his own wedding.
He had no other option.

13. Curtis Granderson laughs in the face of superstition.

14. You just got GranderSON'd, son.

15. These are the facts.
Dispute them at your own peril.
