Yeah, what the heck?!


My leaguemates will loathe me.

Got the jump on K Rod, Santos, and Lindstrom. I didn't even need to draft closers. (In fairness, one of the ones I did was Janssen)


Leagues without FAAB suck. :-t

Was there an injury? I see he only threw 70 odd pitches.

Nope, Bochy just went with an early pinch hit for an early opportunity to score. I didn't like it, but Bumgarner is fine.

Gotcha. Thanks for that.

I see you have Nate Jones in the Cafe Challenge. How much you bidding on Lindstrom :-?

Dunno how the Giants pulled that one out, they played that game like crap. Hopefully just an outlier performance by the defense.

Meet the Mets, Meet the Mets. Step right up and strike the Mets out 18 times and beat up their bullpen.

He is awesome. Cargo bashed a low fastball for a long home run. Wasn't a bad pitch by Fernandez, just a good swing by Cargo. Fernandez threw a ton of strikes and looks like he will be a top 5 pitcher this season.
