Even as a huge University of Arkansas fan (where Keuchel played), I didn't see this coming.


Arkansas pitchers in MLB:

Cliff Lee (Benton HS, U of A)
AJ Burnett (CAC HS, N. Little Rock)
Travis Wood (Bryant HS)
Dallas Keuchel (U of A)
Drew Smyly (LR Central HS, U of A)
Mike Bolsinger (U of A)
Duke Welker (U of A)
Blake Parker (Fayetteville HS, U of A)

on the way: Ryne Stanek (U of A), Jess Todd (U of A)

not bad for a small state ;-D

Bauer, Waino and Ventura starting tonight. Hoping for 2 Wins and 30 K's. What this means is that I will have 2 L's and less than 15 K's. This season sucks! :~(

I don't know why everyone is so upset, my season is going fine. Sitting in first thanks to a few $1 guys: Brantley, Walker, and Yordano ftw. Making up for Hanley and Wright being so underwhelming.

How the hell did you get Brantley and Ventura for $1? :-L
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Strange enough it isn't my pitchers causing me trouble on most of my teams.
My H2H team has 31 HR through 7 weeks. :~(

Also 1st in 4 leagues (for now :*) ) but I didn't spend so much as a dime on arms or draft any 'till late in the draft (I did pay for saves and regret doing so) so I'm not upset just think pricey or early picks on arms was a poor choice this year because they suck every other start.

I'm doing poorly in BRAL (formally Boomer's league) thanks to a less than spectacular draft strategy, but I am top 4 in my other three leagues (all keeper). Lots of injuries and under performing guys thus far. I've been able to manage enough to stay afloat until guys turn it around and/or get healthy.
