Cheering Venting for the weekend

Postby bigken117 » Fri Jul 27, 2012 12:39 pm

come play Pick 3 and Lucky Ladders, get yourself an easy icon

no good memes lately, the internet must not be working

Last night saw two impressive debuts,

Starling Marte homered on the first pitch he saw, which leads me to further my claim that he'll swing at anything ;-7

Matt Harvey debuted for the Mets and struck out 11 in only 5.1 IP. He is the one I would add of the two if you play in a public league where both are available. If you are in a competitive league and these guys are still unowned, stop calling it a competitive league.

Brewers GM Douggy Melvin said Greinke would be traded by the deadline. Way to drive up the price.
James Shields continues to suck, he now has 125 IP of 1.43 WHIP for my roto team. That's a tough hole to play in.
Mike Trout finally overtook Andrew McCutchen as the #1 ranked fantasy player.

Any other news?

I like it. There could be an ongoing list of things that happen throughout the year where you could really find out how competitive of a league you are in.

You might be a redneck if...

You might be in a competitve league if...

I love it when playing matchups works. I was down to Rizzo v Crawford for my UTIL spot. Noted that Rizzo hits like a crazy person so far off righties. That is certainly working out well for me so far. ;-D

Anyone else miss out on Trout so you're over-congratulating yourself on snagging Rizzo? !+)

What do we think the odds are that Greinke doesn't start Sunday because of trade??

Only have Niese going today.
Drew Pomeranz sucks. He was being dangled early this year in my NL dynasty. Nobody bit - lol

That Kanye meme always makes me laugh. I did like the one about Wright being snubbed by Pablo better.
