I need Longoria to hit HR's, so I'm going to whine about how bad he is here.

I mean what's his problem? 5 HR's in his last 57 games? I thought I drafted Evan Longoria at 3rd, not Placido Polanco.


Here's a quick list of 3B-eligible players with more HR's in the last month:

Jose Bautista, Adrian Beltre, Pedro Alvarez, Aramis Ramirez, Mark Reynolds, Ian Stewart, Bill Hall, Chris Johnson, Ryan Zimmerman, Chipper Jones, Gordon Beckham, Michael Young, Jhonny Peralta, Chase Headly, Alex Rodriguez, Jeff Keppinger, David Wright, Andy Marte, Juan Uribe, Ty Wiggington, Michael Cuddyer, Alex Gordon, Eric Hinske, Martin Prado.


So... Two rookies in Alvarez/Johnson, A piece of glass in Chipper, A handful of utility guys and some guys that don't even play every day (Uribe, Keppinger, Hall, Peralta, Keppinger, Marte, Uribe, Wigginton, Hinske), and a top prospect that has busted harder than a water pipe in Antarctica.



Evan Longoria is the worst baseball player ever, and he will never hit another HR as long as he lives.

Ha, nice rant.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

I benched him not too long ago because I was tired of his 0fer metrosexuality, and... he it a homerun got himself a couple rbis and a couple runs.

I hate him. My dogs hate him. My goldfish hates him. Mother Teresa (God rest her soul) hates him.

I'm glad you whined about this because, as we all know, while whining is not attractive, it is somehow very effective. I look forward to the positive results.

Indeed, my Jay Bruce whining thread was very effective for a short time... Unfortunately, you have to really whine consistently to get your players to perform well all season long.

If we all work together, I'm sure we can get Longoria to 35 HR's by the end of the year... Lets get to work!

Sorry, I have hexed Longoria for ruining Morrow's no-hitter today. He is bound for a hilarious season-ending fishing injury.
