What happened to baseball? It was here, then we were put to sleep by that snoozefest they call the all-star game. Now, I don’t know about you, but the all-star break is like sports hell; best option to watch was the WNBA, really. I actually started a puzzle, that’s how bored I was.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The week leading up to the All Star break is always fun times for me — it’s when I can take my paid vacation to beautiful Bayonne, NJ. My all-inclusive cab ride includes a firsthand view of a few muggings, a stop for gas, and a flavored shaved ice from Primo, the traveling shaved ice guy. In all seriousness, this is a good time to look at your roster and actually commit to it or start pondering the fantasy football drafts. So happy 4th of July to all and I hope the fantasy gods bless you with bountiful stashes of herbs and RBI’s. (Please note that pitchers and match-ups may change)
Everett Teaford (@Tor vs Romero, @Det vs Fister) Sounds like a guy I would want selling Butterscotch Krimpets, not throwing two games in one week. I have seriously reconsidered how much I like those Krimpets now that I have written about them.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Ah, we can breathe a little easier, interleague play is finally over. I have never really been a fan of it as it relates to fantasy purposes. Too much who is playing where, and the DH rule makes me miss Ron Blomberg.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Another week older and closer to the all-star game. Where we can look forward to listening to about 600 comments about the waterfall in Kauffman Stadium. We get it, it’s a waterfall in a baseball park; my koi pond has one too but you don’t see them sauntering about with uniforms having a home run derby.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This week looks like a S an M fest for WHIP ratio’s. Most of these guys I wouldn’t give to my ex-girlfriend. Anyways, we must plug along, and I have to write about something. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Did you ever get flustered to the point where you never know what to say. Well that’s where I am currently. Fantasy baseball is tertiary right now; yea it’s on a a whole third level of importance as I type this.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Oh, the Memorial Day weekend is here, subtle rejoice. It is officially the start to the season of way too tight Affliction t-shirts that are monikered in glitter and shirts that are sold in the three-pack variety. What could be better than that, I’ll tell you what.Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is the part of this story that is supposed to grab the reader. I don’t believe in all the handy hullabaloo. I will be too worried about doing it in a fashion that is in the form of an inverted W and having other people critique it and say I am an injury risk going forward.Please, blog, may I have some more?
An action packed week is in store for ya. I know you can barely contain yourselves. Every single team has 7 games this week. Add in the fact that the start of interleague play is upon us and it is like a delicious fantasy burrito.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Fantasy baseball is a fickle beast. It will lure you in with chocolates and fine smelling perfume. Then leave you heartbroken, mad as hell and unable to watch regular baseball. Twelve after 20 is becoming the year of the Aflac for closers.Please, blog, may I have some more?
