Return to Baseball Leftovers

Coping with the all-star break...

I got some sleep, but before I did that I looked at the Games Played and Innings my team was on pace for and saw that I had too many OF and not enough C games, so I cut Wily Mo Pena for Bengie Molina. I also looked at the standings and figured out what I should trade for and what to trade away as half a season is a significant sample size to make more accurate Standings projections with.

And I also picked up Brandon Claussen.
[b]Bold Predictions:[/b]

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

Also since my private league with friends from high school is transaction fee based we give a 3 day period where transactions are free to retool your team for the second half and for the bottom dwellers to have time to improve their team without spending money on a lost cause.

Other than that, we do it to have a reason to go to the bar and get drunk. Personally, I'm using it as a reason to claim victory at the season's midpoint.


That's a great rule, and the first of its kind I've ever seen. I'm going to run that by my league as we revamp and expand upon our 7 year keeper league. Thanks! ;-D


My pleasure. It somehow got turned into a full week last night while we were all wasted after I claimed it didn't matter what they did, noone could catch me. Then I went home and stashed Brandon Lyon on my DL and picked up Jhonny Peralta to rot my bench so noone could have him out of spite.

I take advantage of the opportunity to get caught up on what's going on in the WNBA.

I went outside and there was this big, bright yellow thing in the sky. It was weird...
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
