Stop the press. Who is that?  Vicki Vale?  Nope.  Ricky Romero, Ricky Romero.  Yesterday, Romero went 8 IP, 0 ER, 7 Ks with 8 baserunners.  Let’s go in the Wayback Machine… Cue dream sequence music, activate wavy screen… Here we are back on April 20th, “(Romero’s) walks are very low (for him), and he’s left a lot of guys on base, so he will see a correction in his future (SMACK!), but his FIP is only 3.86 (now at 4.20).  …Might want to try a little R & R. (POW!) Oh, and get Ben Zobrist right now even though he only has 3 homers.”  And that’s me quoting me and making up a false quote about Zobrist!  Pretty much all that holds true from back in April.  Ricky Romero continues to get lucky with men he’s leaving on base, so that could turn around and bite him at any moment.  But you really should own him at this point, though I wouldn’t start him in The Jetstream next time out.  Slide, slide, slippity slide… The Jetstream!  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Elijah Dukes – Frequent commenter, Doc said, “Dukes sent to AAA on Wednesday. Nats host Domestic Violence Awareness Day at Nationals Park on Friday.” Nats seem like they’re going from 5-tool outfielders to 1-tool — Dunn, Willingham… Maybe they can get Jack Cust to play center.

Sean Burnett – Gave up the game-tying homer to Cody Ross.  Welcome to the Washington Nationals organization.  If you wish to excel, you’ve come to the wrong place.  Here you will either fail or be ignored when you succeed.  Don’t bother with the life preservers.  On his way out of town, Dukes punctured them all.

Kelly Johnson – Cox says Prado’s has won the starting job over Kelly Johnson.  Bad year to be a Johnson or a Wang.

Alexei Ramirez – Hurt his middle finger and will have X-Rays.  I’m preparing to give him my middle finger if he’s out for an extended time.

Mike Aviles – Out for the season with Tommy John surgery.  As opposed to, out for the season with terrible stats as he had been.

Justin Morneau – Left yesterday’s game with a slight groin pull.  Isn’t that what they booked Pee Wee Herman on?  Word out of the Twin Cities is Morneau should be okay.

Brandon Webb – Here’s the good news, Webb doesn’t need season-ending surgery.  Here’s the bad news, he’s not scheduled to pick up a baseball any time soon.  Everyone’s talking about dropping Peavy, but I’d expect Peavy to return before Webb.

Josh Johnson – 3 1/3 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners and 1 debt of gratitude to Badenhop for bailing him out.  Not to be a nervous Nelly and start putting Band-Aids on my face, but I hope Johnson wasn’t lackluster because of any sort of injury.

Leo Nunez – Got the save, Meyer got the vulture win.  Who ya gonna call? Maroone!

Jordan Zimmermann – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 Ks.  Continues to pitch much better than his 4.52 ERA indicates.

James Shields – 7 1/3 IP, 4 ER, 8 Ks.  Would’ve been too easy to take him out prior to the 8th inning when he had only given up two runs.  *shakes fist at sky*  Maddon!!!

Brad Bergesen – 8 IP, 1 ER, 6 Ks, 4 baserunners vs. the Sawx.  High GB %, Low K Rate. Like a featherweight, he doesn’t knock opponents out as much as outlast them and wins on points. That’s serviceable enough if he’s fighting against pushover opponents in friendly confines like the NL West (see Cook, Aaron) but the heavy punchers of the AL East….forget about it.

Koji Uehara – Out with a tear in his elbow.  Punt!

George Sherrill – 2/3 IP, 2 ER.  With the trade deadline less than a month away, Sherrill’s auditioning for the job of Nats closer.

Mike Pelfrey – 7 2/3 IP, 0 ER, 6 Ks.  Has been terrifically yawnstipating this year, averaging about 5 and two-thirds per start with a 4.26 ERA and 1.44 WHIP and no Ks.

Jason Hammel – 8 IP, 1 ER, 5 Ks, 5 baserunners.  Has a 2.13 ERA away from home.  I’ll say it again for the people in the back of the room, 2.13 away from Coors.  Unfortunately, he’s at home for his next three of four starts.

Clayton Kershaw – 5 IP, 0 ER, 1 Hit.  Hopefully Kershaw’s niche doesn’t remain these 5 inning affairs.  Don’t want no short stint man.

Juan Rivera – HR yesterday as picks up in July as he was hitting in June, a month that saw him hit 8 homers.  Yes, months can see.

Jered Weaver – 5 1/3 IP, 7 ER.  Ouch.  Wait, what?  Oh.  Ouch.

Vladimir Guerrero – 3-for-4, 0 RBIs, has two homers on the year.  Maicer Izturis has 2 homers on the year.  Cust kayin’.

Yovani Gallardo/Adam Wainwright – Dozen Ks and one earned run a piece as they faced David Wright +8 and The Team That Let Bonds Break Aaron’s Record and Now Karma’s Repaying, respectively.

Johnny Cueto – 6 IP, 0 ER.  Ah, it’s nice to be done with interleague.

Jay Bruce – 0-for-3, batting .212 on the year.  I see what he’s doing.  He’s setting himself up to be a sleeper next year.  Pretty sneaky, Bruce.

Randy Wells – 7 IP, 1 ER.  I thought he was done being productive a few starts ago.  Wells obviously thought different.  He has a solid K to Walk ratio and is worth taking a chance on in 10 team leagues and deeper.

Hank Blalock – 2 HRs, now has 16 on the year as he resumes the role of oft-injured 3rd baseman that has to play DH because he’s oft-injured.

Frank Francisco – 1 IP, 3 ER.  Sure, this is about as much as a limb as John Cusack playing a misfit hipster with a strange job who girls like as a friend until he declares his love in some offbeat fashion, but Francisco’s not right.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see Wilson getting saves again.

    Juan Rivera’s last two home runs have been pure strength. He isn’t stopping anytime soon. Center field, right field… this guy is good. He hits all his jacks to the opposite field!

    @and1mcgee: He hits all his jacks to the opposite field!
    wouldnt that mean he is behind pitchers?

    Anyways, Grey, I was offered Josh Hamilton and I give up Johnny K-ueto. Almost seems TOO good to me. Did Hamilton suffer a setback that ESPN’s lazy updaters failed to mention?

    According to the interweb-net, Rodrigo Lopez – not Carlos Carrasco will get the start Friday night against the Mets.

    Grey, I don’t understand why you go to Defcon 1 every time Josh Johnson hiccups. What has he done since his return last season to give you the idea that he’s more an injury risk than a normal pitcher? The guy’s had two bad games in the past 2-3 months, and both times you’ve gone all limp and floppy for him the next day. Johnson has never depended on nor used his slider as much as Liriano (up with whom you seem to be mixing him…take that, prepositions!), and it’s not like TJ surgery is some new, experimental procedure.

    What do you guys think about rostering Pierre in a league where I need speed? Someone just dropped him as the little Yahoo! blurb thing reports he’ll be starting 1-2 games per week. I cant imagine he should sit on waivers long…

  12. AL KOHOLIC says:
    (link)

    @Beau: if you can afford to roster him just for 2 spot starts a week,and be able to know when to play him,then he will nab you some stealsplus he could still be traded

  13. Teef says:

    Why does Cole Hamels blow so much ass?

    He ruined my day after having Gallardo and Wainright both pitching gems (even tho neither got a win to show for it which is pretty shocking if you think about it. I mean Wainright went 9 innings and gave up 1 run..Come now)

  16. ThePoonTycoon says:
    (link)

    @Beau: if you have bench space and wouldn’t be waiving anyone worth a damn for him, sure why not. maybe he gets traded, maybe there is an injury/suspension opening for him again. if you do the daily thing, you can watch closely and get him in on the games he starts and nab some avg/steals/Rs here and there (though i personally wouldn’t start him over most starting caliber OFs even on the days he starts).

  17. AL KOHOLIC says:
    (link)

    @Teef: yeah he burned me also,no one will even trade for him,ive put him up for trade,zero offers and bedard and peavy,repeat after me,grey, you were righ,i will no draft pitchers till the 7th round

  18. Beau says:
    (link)

    Thanks guys, I grabbed Pierre and dropped Everth Cabrera, my SAGNOF of the day anyways. Hopefully he’ll play a bunch, but not due to an Ethier injury since i roster him on the same team!

  19. sean says:

    @Grey: Downs is supposedly back this weekend. I have both him and Frasor. Think Cito will give him the job back or stick with Frasor?

  20. AL KOHOLIC says:
    (link)

    @sean: might go 1 for downs 1 for frasor till break but downs owns the gig

  21. anoraxx says:
    (link)

    I also have Pierre on my team and since I haven´t been able to ship him for anyone I´ll hold him for one more week to see how the situation plays out and then deliberately drop him for good. My personal opinion is that he gets no more than one start per week. That being said, I believe there are better options sitting on the waiver than once a week starter.

  22. AL KOHOLIC says:
    (link)

    @anoraxx: the hard part is sitting around checking lineups to see if he`s playing,plus i dont keep any bench guys except pitchers,so if i have a nobody at ss,2b or m.i then id grab cabrera or bloomquist

  23. Hardcore Midget says:

    Need to drop an OF this weekend so I can activate Hamilton.

    In a keeper league, which OF should I keep on my roster- Colby Rasmus or Nolan Reimold?

    I know Rasmus has been hot of late (well, until this week), but it also seems like he is more likely to lose playing time now that DeRosa is in St Louis, and he’s battling Ankiel, Duncan and Ludwick for time too.

    So I’m leaning towards Rasmus, but is it the right move?

  24. Rob says:
    (link)

    Should I hold onto CJ Wilson or Frasor? I have been rotating each of them as a 3rd reliever. Your post are must read. thanks for helping me stay at the top of my league.

  25. AL KOHOLIC says:
    (link)

    @Rob: downs injury wasnt his arm,franky has been out twice already this year,id have to think c.j but not till franky gets hurt,talk of trades involving closers,maybe grab hawkins or another in waing closer

  26. ThePoonTycoon says:
    (link)

    @Hardcore Midget: i’d say reimold if you have to drop an OF. i think rasmus plays at lesat 5 starts per week barring a huge set back, and he’s the bigger prospect. is there no one on your bench worth dropping?

  27. anoraxx says:
    (link)

    @AL KOHOLIC:
    Well, Pierre was my starting LF as Bruce is in a random mode, hitting 1-4 homers once a week, though, isn´t telling anyone which day it would be and F. Lopez is, well, playing for Crapizona. So I picked up Scott Podsednik who has had better (way better actually) overall numbers than Pierre over the last month and should fit in nicely at LF spot until I figure how to seize Braun :)

    ADD: Looking at Podsednik numbers makes me wonder why on earth haven´t I been playing him for some time already instead of Pierre.

  28. AL KOHOLIC says:
    (link)

    @anoraxx: pods ,yeah especially the ave and rbi compared to pierre

  29. @TheGreatVeto: because you hit the ball the opposite way doesn’t mean you’re behind the pitcher…. its means you’re a good hitter. Yeah sometimes when a guy takes the ball to oppo he’s behind, but good hitters go that way… I coach baseball now and when i use to play i had most of my power to opposite field. I actually positioned my stance so i could take the ball that way….

  30. Lines says:
    (link)

    Is Cole Hamels mad at me? Is that why he pitched like that? Was it something I said? I should send him some flowers, or chocolate. Does he like chocolate? Philly fans? Lil’ help?

    @wb1960: Dude, really? It’s Texas, and it’s Kazmir. Think about it – the Rangers have a good line-up and play in a hitter’s park. Kazmir is unreliable on a good day… It’s like some sort of crazy equation where Texas + Kazmir = you losing ERA and WHIP for the week.

  31. anoraxx says:

    @AL KOHOLIC:

    HRs and OPS as well, Pierre was a beast the first month of his trip to salvation but he cooled off a lot the second one.

  33. Click says:
    (link)

    People have been dropping 1st baseman like mad and I was wondering if I should reshuffle that and the utility position. The most notable dropped have been Cantu and Blake. Are either worth a pick up or waiver? I have Votto at 1st and Helton/ Lopez splitting time at the utility position. How would you rank them? It’s a 14 h2h league by the way. Thanks for the help!

  34. Suck My Wieters says:
    (link)

    @Grey,

    I think its time to start giving Randy Wells a little more credit than you are. I believe hes a pitcher that should be owned in ALL leagues. He just goes out there and throws Gem after Gem.

  35. AL KOHOLIC says:
    (link)

    @black love: only in 14 tam leagues i would think,corriea,cook,gaudin wells guys like that are probably available and can help you now

  36. Teef says:
    (link)

    Also not getting enough credit – Dallas Braden

  37. Teef says:
    (link)

    For example, rank G. Floyd, Braden, Wells

  38. is fowler worth holding onto…. he does nothing but steal a base every couple games….

  39. Hardcore Midget says:
    (link)

    @ThePoonTycoon: The only other bench player I would consider dropping would be Felipe Lopez (as I also have Beckham on my bench), but he is like my super-sub for days off with his 2b, SS and 3B eligibility.

    I know Rasmus is the better prospect, but I dunno. He just doesn’t excite me. And Reimold is hitting out of the 5 slot now, and has a clearer path to playing time.

  40. AL KOHOLIC says:
    (link)

    @Teef: probably floyd wells then braden,floyd has been nuts lately .93 era last month

  41. Baron Von Vulturewins

    Baron Von Vulturewins says:
    (link)

    Reimold has almost exactly half the ABs as Bruce has (139 to 273) — and if you double his stats, he’s like Bruce w/ avg:

    Bruce: .212 38R 18HR 40RBI 3SB

    Reimold (x2): .288 40R 18HR 40RBI 0SB

    Point being, Reimold IS what Bruce should be. In fact, if you had a guy on your team hitting .288 w/ 18HR, would you be thinking of dropping him?

    If Bruce had any value, I’d be shopping him and slotting in Reimold as his replacement.

  42. Paulie Allnuts

    Paulie Allnuts says:
    (link)

    @AL KOHOLIC: I would have made an offer for Hammels; can’t see him being this erratic for the entire season; but like yourself, I need sluggers, not pitching. All my pitching stats are 9 or above, so I am in good shape for the moment. To be honest, you could put up Willie Mays and Bob Gibson in our league, and there probably would be no takers. Thought about picking up Pierre, just in case he was traded, but you don’t have enough bench spots in RCL for that kind of luxury.

    @anoraxx: Picked up Pods over a month ago – he was hot, and I hoped that I would get a week of production out of him. To my surprise, he continues to play at a high level. Along with Me and Casey McGeeeGee, I hope the nice roll continues for as long as possible.

    Grey – “Dukes sent to AAA on Wednesday. Nats host Domestic Violence Awareness Day at Nationals Park on Friday.” Ha! You should perhaps give recognition to the Commentor of the week. Doc wins the prize this week.

    Thanks for the rundown. Picked up Romero in the RCL, let’s see how he does. Cut Bergeson for Gaudin as well. I’m listening more these days, and my RCL standings are taking a commensurate rise. Coincidence? Not likely.

  43. AL KOHOLIC says:
    (link)

    @Teef: i agree but boy he`s got a tough next 5 starts coming up,if he comes out of that o.k then he should move up considerably,again that a.l vs n.l pitcher thing

  44. is reimold getting PT?

    full pt?

  45. @Baron Von Vulturewins: so what you’re saying is offer my bruce for another guys reimold hahahah…. done and done.

    @Paulie Allnuts: there will still be some 2nd half jems out there,we just gotta find them

  47. Paulie Allnuts

    Paulie Allnuts says:
    (link)

    @Baron Von Vulturewins: Picked up Reimhold in three leagues (in RCL thanks to my buddy AL KOHOLIC); the amazing thing is that he is owned in only 8.5 % of leagues in ESPN. People just aren’t paying that much attention, I guess.

  48. Paulie Allnuts

    Paulie Allnuts says:
    (link)

    @Tony Y: Gets about a day off per week; maybe two, but as he continues to produce, should play every day.

    @AL KOHOLIC: Whoever picks up those gems will win the league. It’s becoming a horse race. Everybody has some holes -aAJP’s BA has dropped precipitously, and he doesn’t get any steals. Each of us has at least a couple of holes that need to be filled.

  49. sean says:
    (link)

    @Tony Y: Fowler hasn’t played much lately — Seth Smith has been taking ABs away from him. He’s very replaceable by SAGNOFerOTW

  50. ThePoonTycoon says:
    (link)

    @Suck My Wieters: i am fully on the randy wells train. his babip is a little low, so i expect some kind of correction, but it’s not so absurdly so that he’s gonna suddenly become a 5.00 era pitcher if a few more balls start dropping for hits.

  51. AL KOHOLIC says:
    (link)

    @Paulie Allnuts: same night i dropped reimold,i thought inge was sliding back to his old ways and dropped him also,hence the slide of my own began,i went from 9 in ave to 3 in a week and a half

  53. Baron Von Vulturewins

    Baron Von Vulturewins says:
    (link)

    @Tony Y: If you can get Reimold + a warm body for Bruce, I’d do that.

    CAVEAT BRUCETOR: I mean, Bruce is a super-prospect for a reason: He’s “capable” of reeling off two straight 10-donk months. He’s “capable” of getting on a hot streak — though at this point I’d put the over/under on his final avg/ at .260, and take the under. But Reimold is definitely way undervalued.

    @Paulie Allnuts: I’m sure being named Nolan Reimold doesn’t help. If he had a strapping, All-American baseball name like, say, Mike Clark, or Bingo Sampson, or, say, Jay Bruce, he’d be 90% owned, at least.

  54. Baron Von Vulturewins

    Baron Von Vulturewins says:
    (link)

    @Baron Von Vulturewins: CAVEAT REIMTOR: Also, it’s not like Reimold will carry your team. He has 9 RBIs in the last month. (Bruce = 10). I suspect he’ll be one of those blahtastic Os (like Markakis) who never puts up obviously gaudy numbers but at the end of the season somehow winds up at .280 with 28 donks.

  55. Paulie Allnuts

    Paulie Allnuts says:

    @AL KOHOLIC: We all make some mistakes. I dropped Scott Baker after I went into a rage when he made his third bad start in a row. 10 seconds later I regretted the action, and wanted to pull him back. I didn’t follow my 24 hour rule of achieving an emotion-free approach before dropping a good player; the rule doesn’t apply to schmohawks, though.

    @wb1960: I own him in a 12 team league and am not starting him.

    @sean: Downs will get the job again. But I wouldn’t drop Frasor until it’s clearly the case.

    @Rob: Thanks for the kind words. I’d hold both. If impossible, Wilson.

    @Lines: Ha!

    @Click: I’d drop Lopez for Cantu. Ranking them Votto, Helton, Cantu, Lopez.

    @Tony Y: Depends what you’re filling him in with, but probably not.

    @Paulie Allnuts: We used to do Commenter of the Week, but… You’re all my children!

    @ Doc: I’m not sure that he is gonna suck, but with Reyes coming back I don’t really like him as an outfielder or UTIL guy. My current outfield is Carlos Lee, Brad Hawpe, Raul Ibanez, Carl Crawford, Cody Ross and/or Vernon Wells.

    @Grey: So the trade we ended up on was my Arod, Damon, Soria for Figgins & Johan. I didn’t want to give up a draft pick and still have faith Quentin comes back strong. My OF consists of Kemp, Grandy, Werth, Cruz and Quentin on the DL. Just need to pick up a random Util til CQ returns. I think it works out well. I have lots of room to gain on the pitching side and only lacking room on the SB side of offense.

    I was gonna accept a trade of me trading AWAY Bourn/Reimold to someone for D Ortiz but all this Reimold talk has given me cold feet.

    @a winner is you: I think it would depend on who your replacement SS would be. If you already have Hanley then Zobrist would never start for you anyways. If you have…Furcal….then probably not worth it.

    @Eric C.: Oops. Didn’t see his post about already having Reyes. Yeah just take Votto I guess.

    Just got offered Cantu for my Cueto. My current 3B is DeRosa & my SP is solid with Haren, Bills, Carp, Bedard, Floyd, Zimm, Kaz.

    Fair trade?

    I want to mention my Reimold struggles. Back a few weeks ago, I was noticing he was sitting more than now (when he was batting 7th and 8th). So I would sit him when he wouldn’t start. Anyway, each time I sat him, he would pinch hit a 3-run HR. Needless to say, I have been sonofabenched for the tune of 3 HR and 9RBI. BLAH

I’m not very happy about it, as it involves the first place team that sits directly above me in the standings.First Place Team gives: David Ortiz, Rafael Furcal, Kenshin Kawakami, Dan Meyer First Place Team receives: Grady Sizemore and John Lackey Do I need to post the – I Protest This Trade open letter that Grey posted last month? Seriously?”

    Results so far:
    Ortiz: .344 avg, 3 HR 0 SB
    Furcal: .200 avg, 0 HR, 0 SB

    Weekly H2H-Points league. I own Nathan, Soria and Nunez. Can only start two. Nathan is a no-brainer, obviously, but Soria has some tough match-ups next week, while Nunez has it much easier:

    Soria: 3x@DET, 4x@BOS
    Nunez: 3x@SF, 4x@ARI

    Start Nunez over Soria next week?

    Should I trade Howard ($25)/Theriot ($1) for Votto ($8)/Alexi Ramirez ($21)? I’m in an auction league where each player kept will cost $3. I have Prince Fielder and would rather have Votto for years at a cheaper price and I need MI help. Any ideas on this? I want to win this year and I’m currently in 2nd and should make playoffs.

    (link)

    @Jo: don’t offer a proven vet who is still young enough to improve for a guy who’s been called up for a month and is showing signs of promise but nothing is guaranteed. at least go for a jeter or someone as SS. trade cano for another piece + beckham. trade cano for a better player elsewhere, then turn around and trade a lesser player or a guy at a deeper position for beckham. basically, cano is far to proven and productive and still has upside (he’s only 26 i’m pretty sure) to trade for a guy who been decent but unspectacular in his 1 month of MLB experience.

    Is it possible that Beckham could be mature beyond his years due to his college career and we could be looking at a steal for the rest of the year with SS/3B eligibility? I haven’t been keeping up on Razzball thoughts on him. So what are the thoughts on him?

    @Grey: Drew, Beckham, or Andrus while Alexei is out?? I feel like you’re gonna say Drew, but Andrus has been hot lately and I’ve seen a lot of talk about Beckham. I drafted Drew and dealt with his early on suckfest before dropping him late may so i have a little resentment.

  105. Frank Rizzo says:
    (link)

    @Grey: Thanks. It’s true. I feel better off than some others in my league at SS since I have Drew but that sure the hell ain’t saying much. I don’t care if he’s a rookie, if he’s producing at the SS position, I’m buying.

    And S Drew strengthens my stance on SS and how sucktitious it is. Good grief…the guy does crap in the beginning of the year, gets hurt and goes to the DL, does crap for awhile after returning from the DL, starts a little hot streak that get’s his BA up to a whopping .250 (BO-NER TIME), and now he’s working his way back down to a .230.

    Let’s not get crazy Steve. Raising that BA up to .265 is way the hell to much to ask.

    Good news for all ya’ll.

    From MLB.com — The injury caused Ramirez to leave Wednesday’s game in Cleveland prior to the bottom of the eighth inning. X-rays were negative in the injured area of Ramirez’s finger, but there’s no guarantee he will be back in the lineup on Friday against Royals ace Zack Greinke. “Possibly,” said Ramirez, who was replaced by Jayson Nix on Thursday. “I cannot say he will be back tomorrow,” said White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen. “It’s still a little bit early. I don’t want him to aggravate it. I’ll talk to him and make sure he doesn’t take any ground balls. But he feels better. There’s no hairline fracture. I worry about that one. Hopefully he will be back tomorrow, for sure. I got to wait for him to see how he feels.”

    @AL KOHOLIC: Now 8 pts in back of AJT, even with CC getting Pwonsoned’. Jairangulus is even closer. Muscle Russel hit one over 540 ft in the Jetstream. Ichiro is starting to steal bases. The god of Lud got 2 ribbies. Life is good.

    And you get Manny back tomorrow. (Don’t forget to put him in your lineup!)

    Think we have a horse race

    check – 450 ft. Muscle Russell ain’t the Mick or Richie Allen.

    @Paulie Allnuts: hey thanks paulie,but yes i did already insert him(sounds nasty)thanks alot for maggs,he sucks worse than bradley.you beat me to posada too,but your only 8 points from the top,like in golf,id rather shoot a 40 and get beat,than shoot a 48 and win(unless good money is on the line)so go get him,hopefully ill be joining yall soon

    @AL KOHOLIC: There is only a 12 point difference from 2nd to 7th; anyone of those teams can compete – you won’t be 7th in homers once Manny gets rolling. Yeah, Maggs really does suck. I won’t pick up Milton to compare suckiness. They may not suck as much as Tony Suck; then again, think how much Tony would be worse in the Razzball leagues! Not many who have a lifetime average about 50 points under the Mendoza line…
