Considering I'm benching him, I really hope that doesn't happen.

I'll start the Hosmer OF eligibility count: 4 more starts! (in standard Yahoo leagues). Having AGon and him with OF eligibility will immensely help my flexibility.

Alright. I misinterpreted. Still, profanity isn't typically tolerated and I can't say I blame 'em. It's a ways off from Clay Buttholes, which is also on the maturity level of a 12 year old, but still makes me laugh.

I think both are on the same level, and that one makes you laugh, while you just dont like the other, doesnt make any difference.
And say that you don't understand english humor, it doesn't mean it's bad or worse in any way than any other kind of humor that you like.
An average 12 year old can not come up with a thing like this.
If any of this kind of humor makes you laugh it's either not on the maturity level of a 12 year old, or every one of them (half of the world likes Eddie Murphy) are on the maturity level of a 12 year old, which is not likely.
Profanity can be used to be funny, or at least to attampt to be funny, while no one is offended.
You mentioned that profanity is not tolerated, but "effing', and FU pics are allowed here while everybody knows what they mean.
my 2 cents

Johan getting knocked around predictably in Yankee Stadium. The AL East is a different beast.

I'll take him all day vs a soft tossing lefty like Milone. The benching could really light a fire under him. 1-1 for far.

Daniel Hudson knocked around early. He was replaced by Collmenter already.

apparently Jose Bautista hit a HR against his own team tonight. rotoworld.
Jose Bautista smacked his 16th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Blue Jays on Friday.
He finished the night 1-for-4 with the solo shot off of Brandon Beachy in the sixth inning. After getting off to a rough start to the season, Bautista is hitting .260 (34-for-131) with 13 homers and 31 RBI in 35 games since May 1st. He still remains one of the most prolific power hitters in the league and should approach 40 home runs for the third consecutive season.


tonight I had Torri Hunter and his 2 HR on the bench. :(

I don't think pitchers generally have a very good follow-up start after throwing a no-hitter, especially when they throw so many more pithes than they usually do. Plus, it's the Yankees, in Yankee Stadium. Recipe for disaster.
With the way he's pitched on the road this year, it's a definite concern. I just know I'll be kicking myself if he continues to pitch like the Ace he is on my bench, and Moore pitches like, well, Moore has for most of this season... Ehh, alright you've convinced me. Moore it is. If Johan beasts on my bench I'll still be happy. Just need Moore to look more like he has the last few starts, and less like the a-hole he looked like prior to that.

So far, so good!
