Breath it all in. That’s it. Can you smell it? That’s the smell of the season winding down and the pastrami Reuben I just ate from the Oinkster. Delicious! I’m writing this with a mouthful of expectations [Jay’s Note: That’s what she said…] for the magic of September that happens every year. This past Tuesday I talked about the amazing month Marlon Anderson put up in 2006, and who can forget the statistical anomaly that Hunter Pence put up last year? I would of loved to do some cool September call-ups that are going to start right away and make a difference, but those that can are here, and the others will be part timers. So, in the spirit of September rookie-nookie I have chosen the delightfully smelling Rougned Odor. Speaking of delightfully smelling things, I will be doing a “East Coast vs West Coast End of Summer BBQ Battle Jams” with Ralph today. I’m taking my West and he gets his east. We’ll put up some tracks and encourage others to insert their favorites jams. Our criteria is just being good jams that can play to groups of peeps chillin together.  You may wonder why were doing this and all I can say is because it’s fun and helps us cope with our disappointments. Every good backyard party needs a theme, a fat sack to keep it tight, a DJ on the 1’s and 2’s, a strong drink mixed up in a pitcher, some Latinos, because it’s So Cal, and when five-O breaks it up we can yell this as we scramble. (NOTE: All of these tracks are not safe for work.)

The 0.7% owned Rougned Odor has been quietly putting together a reason for Sky to do a deep league post this coming off-season. I would say for Grey to do a MI Sleeper post, but that has been a little addiction thingy for him lately. Were here for you mustachio. On the year, Rougy has put up a 15-HR pace while throwing in some counting stats of late. He’s hit 4 HR’s over the last month and has a 3/2/8 line the last week. Don’t pay attention to the batting average on this, it doesn’t matter at this point. Counting stats, counting stats, counting stats! He comes in at #42 on the Hitter-Tron for the week. I have fully gone into trust the Tron mode. I questioned that Buick-addicted stainless sex beast earlier in the year, but the Tron has been staying out of the junkyards and doing his homework.

Odor opens the week with three at Kansas City and then closes out at home with vs the Mariners. Earlier in the year, I had read about changes to Arlington that helped neutralize the park effects, but when it’s hot, the ball fly’s. It doesn’t get much hotter than Texas these days. He gets three lefties and four right-handers, and the splits definitely favor facing the right-handers. But in this case? I say don’t judge him by the small sample size. That’s what I say! He’s been having some good days, and like many mysterious Septembers of the past, can be a “didn’t see that one coming” guy. I hate to cut it short today but I got football drafts all weekend and won’t be throwing out any bonus creeps this week. I hope to have a roster expanding call-up post in here next week. Bring it to the comments and we’ll fix your roster or your Labor day BBQ party mix. [Jay’s Note: Your mix needs more Rakim. Just sayin’…]

    Nice I like the way you formatted it and threw it in the post. Dope choices. I could’ve and should’ve thrown in some Rakim. I’ll get on that for Jay in some of the forthcoming battles.

                    In all honesty, I think he says something like “This is Mack One-Oh and you can save money…” Like if he uses his real name, people might know he sold out…

                @Ralph Lifshitz: Sean P was pretty good, had some really hot beats. I had heard a few things from him before but not alot, hes solid though. Locksmith was mediocre, wasnt on long. Had every friggin Rhode Island local rapper come on before them.

          @Ralph Lifshitz: thanks buddy, I think it was the guy who bailed because I was trying to get a draft time that worked for everyone and he gave me a talking to about how to be a commissioner. He must not of liked my response for trying to accommodate because we only had two leagues and were in Beta for the first year.

      @Lemmingness: with 2-3 favorable starts left I think he is dropable if you have quality streamers available.

    kipnis
    gardner
    Pagan
    stubbs @ home
    alcanterra
    D Santana

    I Need Hr R Sb all are very tight with the guy just ahead of me who in first so one point becomes a two point swing.

    Which two sit in a 5×5 this coming week

    If you dont mind id like to know why you sit the two.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @really tight race: pagan and santana

      Pagan is aight but I chose him over stubbs because stubbs is at home this week and it was either santana or kipnis and kip has been stealing bases. Alcantera is heating up again and gardner is too good.

    Alright…I’m going to drop Trumbo for one of these 3 guys…and I’m going to trust your word as the gospel…who should I pick up? This is for our Fantasy Baseball championship.

    “Roughneck” Odor, Alcanterra or Abraham Almonte?

    • J-FOH says:

      @Kerry K: alcantara

    Who would you want in a dynasty league – Jose Bautista or Matt Harvey?

    Bautista is safer but getting old, while Harvey had “Ace” written all over him before the injury.
