Thanks, I was looking for a moderator to get into this. This is a place for knowledge, advice, and the occasional joke or sarcastic message to be shared. The occasional heated debate is okay, but the namecalling has me outraged, although it was just some petty stuff.


I agree and my statement was aimed at the 2 of you as well as anyone else that might want to join in.

Lofunzo, I must disagree with you quotable moniker. There are some really bad beers out there. Bad beer is like bad women. They ain't so bad at 2 a.m.

Maybe I should change it to include after 2 A.M. That might be more accurate. ;-D

Ok, Riley sucked it up and probably cost me ERA and WHIP for the week... so what. The most fun I've had yet this year playing fantasy baseball was jumping on Riley's bandwagon. Not only that, but if Riley would have pitched a shutout, don't you think all us wagoneers would be talking smack? Of course we would. That's part of the fun. Don't dish it out if you can't take it.

BTW I dropped Riley to pick up Piniero. !+)

I watched Riley's start and I would like to point out a few things:

He certainly did not have his best stuff. Despite not having his A-game, he consistantly threw his curveball for strikes, and made Cruz Jr look stupid on a two strike change.

The first three runs were really cheap in my opinion. There were two balls that Mora should have had at third except he was positioned poorly (how does he let a pull hitter get a ground ball between him and the line?). Thre were a couple of line drives through the right side that Palmeiro and Roberts might have had on another day as well.

There were two double play balls (one a potential inning ender) that ended up being single outs.

The Baldelli home run caught some gale force jet stream and carried out to center field. Riley actually made a good pitch, low in the zone, and from TV it didn't look like Baldelli got a good swing on it. Ironically both Roberts and Palmeiro gave it a good whack to right center and theirs were caught on the warning track.

Now he did walk a bunch of guys, and Tino flat out crushed his homer. But at that point I don't think Riley's head was in it anymore. Remember that the orioles were busy gettting no-hit by Paul Abbot while Riley was in the game.

Just some thoughts. He's got to learn to pitch without his best stuff at some point. It is still April.
Go Sens!!.

I will still keep an eye on him, but Eaton was on waiver so I had to drop him
