Miami - Heath Bell might be pitching his way onto the DL.
Minneapolis - The Twins are trying hard to get into the record books. They haven't had a hit in the last 15 innings, and keep trying to stay away from first base via base hit as long as they can. Guinness Book already sent officials to verify the Twins record attempt.
Philadelphia - Recent study confirms that Roy Halladay is human after all.

Boston - Mark Prior leaves the Disabled List organization, where he spent most of his carrier, and looks to sign with the Boston Red Sox.

Insider informant revealed that Customs officials are actually Cardinals fans.
Trotting Dempster fresh off the DL against Cincinnati, and not worried because Votto is apparently incapable of hitting home runs. Also, Morrow against the Angels, who are ditto on Pujols. Hoping for the best...
I'm happy to see Cargo and Giancarlo finally heating up! I have Pujols on one team and that happens to be my worst team of my bunch, so I'm not too concerned about him personally, but from a baseball fan perspective I hope he turns it around soon. I want to at least believe last year is the new Pujols norm, but even that is getting hard to see.
Also yesterday I decided even though I had zero faith in Samardzija and Arrieta, My ERA and WHIP were already torched from Balfour, League and Doubront and I needed the K's in H2H, so I stuck them both in and they combined with Lance Lynn to get me 3 wins, 1.21 ERA and 0.63 WHIP. With his Harrison and Thornton blowups I now have a nice lead in all cats
Oh and Jon Jay is quietly becoming a real good hitter.

Rolling with my homeboy David Phelps, who I've been touting for a while now. Make me look smart, kid. Also got Masterson, and I'm leaning toward starting him. He's had a weird year, a couple of amazing starts and a couple of disasters, but the White Sox suck, and he's an extreme ground ball pitcher. Guess I'm feeling lucky
She said always remember never to trust me She said that the first night that she met me She said "there's gonna be a time when I'm gonna have to go with whoever's gonna get me the highest."
I am getting killed and no where close on RBI XBH HR OPS R H, but am tied on Ks against and winning Errors and Fld Pct. Is it crazy to sit the rest of my offense all week to make sure I dont lose E or Fld Pct? Im winning 10-7 right now we are tied in W and SV and my pitchign staff has carried me all year. I am in last place 12/12.. is this to radical?
Coco Crisp could be headed to the DL. if he does Michael Taylor will be getting the call.
if Matt Kemp continues on his current pace, these could be his end of season numbers.. .417 AVG, 177 R, 88 HR, 184 RBI, 15 SB. he needs to run more. just a thought. last year Ryan Braun beat Matt Kemp for the NL MVP, but then he tested positive for PED. he would win his appeal for the test, basically on a technicality. what if Matt Kemp was so upset that he took PED himself and will take the chance that he doesn't get tested or if he is tested and caught he can get out of it somehow since Braun got out of it. doubtful, but I'm just throwing that out there.
Solid write up. I lost Luebke to the DL in every league, and it looks like I'll be losing Gamel across the board too. Also MIA is Pujols of course, and I made the mistake of drafting Bautista in one league which is frustrating cus he and I have a long love/hate relationship. I didn't have him the last two seasons and I finally bit the bullet this year. Prior to that I must have owned the guy 50 times on and off, so I am officially calling Jose Bautista a ......
