Oh what a night...Late December 1963

Postby docholliday » Wed May 05, 2004 12:30 am

I love it when nights like this happen. I have 12 offensive players and they batted .500 with 7 homers, 17 RBI, 17 Runs (Vlad, ARod, Abreu, Magglio, Kent, IRod, Tiexera) Beckett also, dang-it. Pretty good feeling. Anyone else having a night similiar?

What about a horrible night instead?

C Martinez
1B Sweeney
2B Roberts...good night
SS Cintron...'nuff said.
3B Castilla...it's not Coors. Shit.
OF Beltran
OF Giles...supporting cast is not hitting
OF Berkman
Util Dye Doin' Nothin
Util Burrell HR...but K'd with the bases loaded to end the game

SP Beckett...damn you Benitez
SP Od. Perez...looked off tonight. Horrific WHIP, 3 ER was a surprise considering how badly he was pitching
SP Contreras...WHY WHY WHY?!
RP Benitez...damn you.

And to top it all off...Valverde gets 3 Ks and a save...I was going to add him yesterday, but somebody snatched him up right before I went. I had been considering it for the entire morning yesterday...and instead, I have Koch and Marte. Koch sucks.

Another admitted Contreras user here. I'd gotten rid of him on all but one team. He's gone now. Unfortunately, that same team had Chavez, Burnitz and Womack.........on the bench.

Not quite as good of a night there, but I did go 16/34 with 12 runs, 3 home runs, and 12 RBIs. Could have been worse. :-)

Admitted Contreras starter here, in a deep 16 team mixed H-H points league. Haveing Chavez offset most of the damage though as Contreras got really luck in not takeing the loss. Still hurts seeing all the positive points Chavez put up get neutralized bye doing it off Contreras though. I'm not dropping him either!!!!!!

BTW, am I completely lost or is the post title

My post went into a completely different direction, ie the subject, but I have to admit... I Like It. No it wasn't a Back to the Future reference that tune is just catchy. C'mon sing along.
