Playoffs. More like payouts. That’s what I am looking for right now. I know foosball starts on Sunday and I am pretty geeked up, but when there is money on the table I’m excited. I feel like Jimmy Conway after the Lufthansa heist.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last week my borderline fantasy starter post regressed to the mean, if ‘the mean’ means getting pantsed in the six grade in front of the girl you have a crush on, but you’re wearing skintight gotchies so no one actually sees anything except your stained underwear. You know, not great, not terrible. My line for last week was: 3.43 ERA in 84 IP. The innings were low because guys were bumped or injured. Masterson pitched well (7 IP, 1 ER), but it was two days after I recommended him, so I didn’t count it (but I did mention it — natch!). The WHIP was 1.31 with 5 Wins and 52 Ks. To recap, these aren’t guys I’d drop anyone worthwhile to get, these starters are meant for streaming purposes and all of their ownership in ESPN is under 50%. These streamers are in no particular order. Also, in the final month of the season, managers juggle their lineups more, so there’s no guarantee all of these guys are listed on the right day. Anyway, here’s some borderline starters for this week in fantasy baseball:
Friday, September 10th
Clayton Richard – Unfortunately, there weren’t a whole lot of guys to recommend on this first day. Richard should be started every time out in Petco and that’s where he is on Friday.Please, blog, may I have some more?

The Run Down
The tragic loss of Nick Adenhart hurt on both a personal and organizational level.
