Thank you Dice-K (WTF?).

Brett Anderson has been a great pickup for me, especially since I was a few innings under the limit.

Sort of a slow Monday for most people, I wake up to find my fragmented lineup somehow managed 6 home runs. Thank you Aramis, Cano, Longoria and Reddick. Picked up a W from Estrada also, but of course a truly good day can never be had, as Kenley Jansen came in and pissed all over my ERA. I guess the guy I'm playing against deserves to win a category or two.

Chris Sale is just so fun to watch pitch. Only 1 inning so far but he's hit his spots with all his pitches and looks sharp. ;-D

and with 2 outs in the second after 4 straight K's a bloop hit starts the fun. Couple tough calls but he couldn't throw a strike when he needed to and Markakis took care of a groove pitch up in the zone.

8/27 continued, part 2.

I heard Yadier Molina had a collision at home plate and had to be taken out of the game.

Well the teams I have doing well in ERA got torched (thanks Sale, Verlander and Strasburg) and the teams I have fighting for the playoffs got some great games from guys like Darvish, McDonald and Shields. I guess i can take a beating from my studs now and then as long as my lesser players can balance it out. Got Medlen going on a few teams right now he's going to right the ship a bit I hope.

He's my team leader. Of course I'm in dead last thanks to Longoria (pick #13), Pedroia, Napoli and Uggla. the lone bright spots have been Rosario, Rios and Sale.
