5/22 Cheering, Venting, & I Wish Someone Else Would Do This

Postby bigh0rt » Tue May 22, 2012 11:36 am

News, Notes, & Nonsense:

- Ryan Braun has 9 RBI and 5 Runs Scored in his last 4 games. Mazel tov!

- Gio Gonzalez is proving a lot of his pre-season doubters (and there were a lot of them) wrong so far this season. He's crushing the National League thus far. His 2.75 xFIP and 2.81 SIERA indicate that this isn't some fluke, either.

- Since nobody else seems to like to put the time in and actually create one of these, that's it for today.. Eff you guys.

Thought you were having a great time with this, italics and all. I'd love to help the rest of the week, but I'll be driving a friggn u-haul truck to Denver with one of my sons.

I'm tossing Marcum & Floyd in the 'Cafe Masters' today, where I seem to be stuck in a plus 3 points, minus 3 points, every other day.


* and before anyone brings it up, yes they still let me drive. ;-) Which reminds of a joke I heard awhile back:

Jack (80)is playing golf with his regular group, and tells them he can't hardly see anymore so will have to quit playing
Bob says why don't you get old Sam to watch the ball for you, he still has great eyes at 100
So the next time out Jack is playing and old Sam is going to be his eyes, on the 1st tee box Jack hits a low screamer off to the right, and asks old Sam if he saw it:

Sam "yep I saw it"

Jack "well where did it go"




Sam "I don't remember"

Nothing to dislike about Old McDonald. Also throwing Wainwright and Gavin.

The question is, why would you want to drive? I'd just sit back and nap the whole way to Denver.

H0rt, don't give up yet. You're doing a bang up job. I do remember last season though you said I wouldn't last two months, and I made it through the whole season. (with a little help of course).

You can do it buddy. Just open up another browser window and plagiarize other sites.

Drag and drop.
It worked for me.

I'll start doing one of these every now and then but there will be almost no baseball news in it. I'm barely paying attention to my teams.

It looks like I might have an exciting day tomorrow (tonight for you) with Nicasio, Volquez, Floyd and Cahill starting on my two redraft teams.

I'll help out with this once in a while, at least until I can find a job that gives me some decent hours :-P
