“Richards is talking to trainers but remains on back.  Injury appears to be serious.”  That’s how the news was tweeted out yesterday by the Angels beat writer.  If Agatha Christie were around today, she’d adapt that tweet and name the novel, 140 Characters On A Train Wreck.  Then it would be re-released after a train disaster with its new title, The Pitcher’s Trap.  No matter the title, there was and will only be one antagonist, the Fantasy Baseball Overlord, who gets his jollies from the misery of fantasy baseballers.  You sit on his lap; he says, “What do you want this season?”  “A healthy pitcher.”  “Ho, ho, ho, no.”  Arm injury, oblique, hip impingement, parallel parking impingement because of a stupid cone, broken toe, Tommy John surgery, Tomas Juan surgery in Mexico, forearm strain and now a knee.  The Angels best options are Wade “Joey” LeBlanc, Randy “Team Jacob” Wolf and Chris “Lord” Volstad.  They are all horror shows.  Mean’s while, it sounds like Garrett Richards will miss the remainder of the season, but hopefully will be fine for next year.  Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Josh Hamilton – 2-for-3, 1 run, 3 RBIs.  Best return from a mental health break since Margot Kidder!

Howie Kendrick – 2-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 13th steal.  Too bad his name isn’t Howie Chappaquidkendrick.  That would be cool. Alas…

David Ortiz – 4-for-4 and his 30th homer.  Pretty surprising teams are bothering to pitch to Ortiz, but I guess the Sawx are always losing by so much no one cares.  Your 2014 Red Sox:  Ortiz or nothing.

Clay Buchholz – 6 IP, 6 ER.  Beginning to think without shizz slathered on his arms in the form of suntan lotion, he’s simply a peg boy.

Jason Hammel – Having his start skipped.  “Okay, I’m going to blow this on you, don’t sneeze.”  Hammel sneezes.  Since Hammel is allergic to Billy Beane’s Magic Pixie Dust that turns everything into wonderful, he’ll have probably one more shot to stay in the rotation next week vs. the Astros.  After that, Jesse Chavez could return to the rotation.  I want to see Jesse’s hurl!  Where can I find a pitcher like that?

Jeff Samardzija – 3 2/3 IP, 7 ER.  Billy Beane’s discovered a new curse word, FuSAMARDZIJAck!

Zack Wheeler – 5 2/3 IP, 2 ER, 7 baserunners, 3 Ks.  The Mess jumped out to a huge, early lead and Wheeler got a little too comfortable in his suite at the W.

Lucas Duda – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 23rd homer.  Every time he homers, a hamster dies.  Wet tail!

Eric Campbell – 2-for-3 and his 3rd homer.  Isn’t he a Houston Oilers running back?  Is there a Houston Oilers anymore?  To find out this and more, check out our Fantasy Football Draft Kit.

David Wright – 0-for-4, 1 run.  Watching him hit is like watching Apollo vs. Drago.  Throw in the towel, Rock!

Jeurys Familia – 1 2/3 IP, 0 ER and his 4th save.  I’m all for letting him close games while Mejia’s nethers are getting the cough test, but I don’t understand the nearly two-inning save, unless Collins not only has replaced Mejia, but he also doesn’t trust him to even throw in the 8th inning.  Unless Part II:  More Unless Information, Mejia is still the closer and because Familia entered the game with a four-run lead, Collins just stuck with him.  Mejia definitely hadn’t pitched recently.  Well, either way, I’d own Familia and Mejia if chasing saves.

Zack Greinke – Due to a sore elbow, had his start only pushed back to Saturday.  For now.  The ‘for now’ was my addition.  You like it?  It didn’t cost me anything.

Alexi Amarista – 2-for-3, 1 RBI and 2 steals, his 10th and 11th.  So, basically, if you didn’t draft EverCab and just picked up Amarista, and held him all year, even when he wasn’t playing, you would’ve got more fantasy value in one night.

Kevin Quackenbush – 1 IP, 0 ER and his 1st save.  Besides having a name that sounds like a Fletch alias, he also could be getting saves for the next month.  Or day.  Or week.  Hard to say, but Benoit has complained of a cranky shoulder — aw, did it not get enough sleep? — and the Padres definitely went with The Quackenbush over Thayer

Starlin Castro – Could miss a week on the bereavement list.  You heard it here first, Fidel’s finally dead!

Buster Posey – Day-to-day with a flared-up hip.  I’ve heard of flares on the shoulder, but never on a hip.

Brandon Belt – Due to his concussion, he’s 2-3 weeks away from any physical activity.  Bad month for Belts after Robin Williams.

Andrew Susac – 1-for-5, 2 RBIs and his 1st homer.  Andrew Susac?  Didn’t he kill Versace?  Oh, no, he’s the Giants catching prospect.  He has some power, but he’ll work primarily in a backup role, so outside of NL-Only leagues, not much here for now.

Hunter Pence – 2-for-5, 2 runs and a slam (17) and legs (11).  If Marvel doesn’t do a comic about The Gangly Manbird that is Pence, then opportunity missed.

Jake Peavy – 7 IP, 2 ER, 10 baserunners, 8 Ks, lowering his ERA to 3.58 on the Giants.  Seven innings would’ve been extra innings if the Cubs grounds crew had their way.

Luis Valbuena – 3-for-4, 2 runs and his 11th homer.  If I want to hold onto my diploma from the College of Fantasy Baseball at Charleston, I can’t recommend you picking up Valbuena.

Zach Walters – 1-for-4 and his 3rd homer.  That’s three homers in his last week of games.  The power isn’t a fluke either.  Neither is his .200 average.  But if you need power, I’d grab him in deep leagues.

Mike Aviles – 3-for-4, 2 RBIs and a slam (5) and legs (12).  He’s A Lives!  As my autocorrect wanted to write.  My autocorrect really is excited, too.  My favorite is when you type OMW into text and it immediately puts On my way! with the exclamation mark.  Chill on the enthusiasm, autocorrect, I’m not that excited about where I’m going.  Aviles has been playing most days, but not that well.  He could get hot after yesterday, so I’d watch him like a cyclops with a monocle.

Dustin Ackley – Missed yesterday’s game with a sore back.  So that’s what Ackley’s short for!

James Paxton – 4 IP, 1 ER, 9 baserunners, 5 Ks.  I was hoping early on that he’d rope in the WHIP (pun point!), but ended up Paxton left me needing Paxil (not pun; just sad).  Obviously, you want better from him, but the Stream-o-Nator likes his next start, and I’d try to hold him.

Kendrys Morales – 2-for-4 and his 4th homer.  Fun fact!  When he comes in from a heavy downpour, he doesn’t towel off the wetness, instead he says, “Kendrys.”  It drives his wife crazy who tells him to Kendrys off the sofa.

Jesus Sucre – 2-for-4.  Sweet!

Logan Morrison – 2-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI, has hit in nine of his past ten games and is hitting over .320 in August.  He only has one homer in that time though, so Morrison hasn’t fully broken through.  Better go for another visit with the Native American shaman.

Ben Revere – 1-for-5, 1 RBI and his 37th steal.  After the game, Revere said, “Let’s see Denard Span do that!  Wait, am I Denard Span?  I’m really not sure.”

Wil Nieves – 3-for-4, 1 run.  As his financial ledger is engraved with, “Nieves underestimate me.”

Justin Verlander – Expects to start on Saturday.  I can’t get my font small enough to properly express my enthusiasm.

Rick Porcello – 9 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 4 Ks.  This game was very fast.  I went to walk my dog, Ted, and the next thing I know it was like the 7th inning.  Guess that’s why his Garbage Pail Kid is Make Quick Rick, with him sitting on a toilet that is wired with explosives.

Victor Martinez – 2-for-3, 5 RBIs and his 24th homer.  It’s gonna be super fun for some sucker next year who drafts Martinez and gets the 12-homer, always hurt hitter.

Jake Odorizzi – 6 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks.  He only gave up one run through six innings, then Kirby Yates (if that’s his real name) relieved him and gave up another run.  Excuses are like Matthew Berry’s advice, they both stink, but this start wasn’t that bad.

Wil Myers – 0-for-3 as he was activated from the DL.  Kevin from ESPN’s “Get Him In Your Lineup” Department was found in the office kitchen removing lunch meat from five different people’s sandwiches and building one monster hoagie for himself.  After he took a bite, he said, “Get him *garbled* lineup.”

Nathan Eovaldi – 5 IP, 4 ER, 10 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA up to 4.06 vs. the RAAAngers.  Rachel Ray couldn’t even get excited about that E.O.V.A.

Marcell Ozuna – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 18th homer.  OZUNA hit ball over fence.  OZUNA apologize to fan who lost nachos catching home run ball.  OZUNA not intend to fight obesity.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia – 1-for-1 and his 11th homer.  The Salty dong!  Easy, Cougs, I’m talking about baseball.

Nick Martinez – 6 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 7 Ks.  I wonder if he’s related to J.D…or Victor…or Angie.  Prolly!

Leonys Martin – 3-for-4, 1 RBI and his 22nd steal.  As mentioned yesterday on the aforementioned tip, Leonys is the hottest man in the history of men, aside from Travis Snider and that other guy from that other team.  Either the hoo!  Leonys is hot, and that’s all you should concern yourself with.  In my RCL, I dropped Ackley (peace!) for Leonys.

Alex Rios – 2-for-4, 1 run, 2 RBIs.  I almost wish he’d suck when he played so at least when he misses multiple games with a sore (Mad Libs in body part), it wouldn’t seem like he’s a liar.  I hate your stupid face, Rios!

Charlie Morton – Diagnosed with a sports hernia.  This is like a regular hernia, but the testicles appear to be wearing Kareem goggles.

Gerrit Cole – 7 IP, 2 ER, 9 baserunners (4 BBs), 6 Ks as he was activated from the DL.  Battled his control a bit, but he looked better than I had see him look all year.  Maybe the two months of rehab starts did him well.  Still think his name this year will probably mean more than his actual starts, but you have to be encouraged by his first start back.  Well, you don’t have to be, but you should.

Travis Snider – 2-for-3, 1 run.  He’s hot.  He’s hot.  He’s–Sorry, I think this record is broken.  Who wants to hear The Monster Mash instead?

Alex Wood – 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 4 Ks and a no decision.  It felt like the Braves bats, while not terrific all year, always went especially putrid when Wood was on the mound.  I wasn’t sure if the stats would bear that out, but it felt that way.  So, I went to the Average Run Support for all starters, and Wood is the 2nd worst amongst qualifying starters just barely behind Eric Stults.  That is not some kind of wonderful.

Michael Cuddyer – Expected back on Friday.  That means he’ll be day-to-day again on Sunday.  Will return again next Wednesday.  Then on the DL the following Saturday.  You can set your watch to it, assuming you have a watch with a 15-day DL hand.

Matt McBride – 2-for-3, 4 RBIs and his 1st homer as he played in place of Cuddyer.   I wonder if McBride wants to one day live in a McMansion.

Jorge De La Rosa – 8 IP, 2 ER, 8 baserunners, 3 Ks.  That’s nice, but life’s too short to mess around with a Rockies pitcher who has a 4+ ERA.

Johnny Cueto – 5 IP, 5 ER.  Somewhere, Jason LaRue is smiling.

Michael Wacha – Closer to rehab assignment.  If anyone sees him in the vicinity, would ya point him in the right direction?

Yadier Molina – Did some swinging.  Did he also put his car keys in a fish bowl?

Lance Lynn – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA down to 2.78.  He’s been a streamer in my RCL league for the past two months.  For serious.  A guy with a 2.78 ERA and a 8+ K/9.  And you don’t think there’s a lot of pitching.

Jon Jay – 3-for-4, 2 runs, 1 RBI, hitting near-.500 in the last week.  As any pro-marijuana person would tell you when they remembered what to tell you, our forefathers smoked a ton of cannabis.  To carry on that tradition, The Federalist is hot-boxing every box score he comes near.

Trevor Rosenthal – 2/3 IP, 0 ER and the save.  I’d still continue to hold Neshek.  Rosenthal’s not out of the woods yet and he can’t find any moss on trees to help him.

Wei-Yin Chen – 7 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 7 baserunners, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.76.  He’s the epitome of a streamer, and the Stream-o-Nator doesn’t like his next matchup and I concur.  I concur, y’all!

Steve Pearce – 1-for-4 and his 13th homer.  Pearce cooled off like a witch’s areola, but he’s now hitting near-.400 in the last week with two homers, so that witch’s areola rubbed against a goblin that looks like Antonio Sabato Jr.

Nelson Cruz – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 33rd homer and 2nd in three games, and fourth homer in ten games.  His average has really bottomed out, but obviously he’s mollywhopping again with the best of them.  Cover your eyes if you own him.  C’mon, get hurt, Cruz.  Okay, you can uncover your eyes now.  Hello.  Oh, well, we lost them.

Adam Jones – 3-for-4, 2 runs and his 24th homer.  It sure is nice to have someone that plays and produces every single day.  Ugh, I just jinxed him, didn’t I?  Please don’t smite me, FBO.

Conor Gillaspie – 0-for-3.  White Sox announced that Gillaspie could get some time in the outfield moving forward.  Obviously Gillaspie’s special brand of ‘Hmm, well, I don’t know’ just needs some more versatility.

Avisail Garcia – 1-for-3, 3 RBIs and his 3rd homer.  You can’t afford to not own him!  Unless he’s on waivers and you have no FAAB dollars left, then you can’t afford to own him.

R.A. Dickey – 5 2/3 IP, 5 ER.  If Hollywood goes through with the movie about Dickey’s life, maybe in his Toronto years they can get Vin Mazzaro to play him.

Jose Reyes – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 1 RBI and his 23rd steal, hitting .294.  Only another .006 until his offseason.

Melky Cabrera – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 1 RBI and his 6th steal, hitting .314.  Last year, Coco Crisp was the name you wanted with Fantasy Baseball Scattergories with the category of breakfast, this year it’s Melky.  Next year, Eggward McMuffin (Padres prospect).

Jose Bautista – 2-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 24th homer.  If six homers jumped out of the closet and onto Bautista’s homer total, it wouldn’t surprise me.

Colby Rasmus – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 16th homer.  Since I’m the only one that owns him in any league, yay for me.  Since he’s hitting .224, lowercase yay for me.

Jimmy Nelson – 5 2/3 IP, 4 ER, 11 baserunners, 4 Ks.  Jimmy can’t crack a 4 ERA so I don’t care.

Carlos Gomez – 2-for-4, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 21st homer.  Will the real CarGo please stand up?  Hey, what do you know?  Only one CarGo can stand up.

Gerardo Parra – 2-for-4, 2 runs as he started in place of Khris Davis (0-for-1 as a pinch hitter).  Roenicke started Parra because he doesn’t like my beautiful, luscious, Michael Sheen-thick, feathered hair and wants me to pull it out.

Carlos Beltran – Aggravated his elbow injury on Tuesday.  It’s not easy having tendons that turn to dust when hit by sunlight.

Masahiro Tanaka – Threw a successful 35-pitch bullpen session.  He said through his interpreter, “It went well, but it was actually my first time throwing breaking balls –- something other than fastballs –- in the bullpen, so I felt it was a little bit rusty.  For more info, give my interpreter money.”  Not sure what the Yankees are trying to prove with this, but I highly doubt Tanaka returns this year.  If he does, maybe it’s for a start or two.

Michael Pineda – 6 IP, 2 ER, 5 baserunners, 3 Ks in 89 pitches.  If Pineda were a piñata, Girardi would be standing in front of the children swinging their bats and tossing chiclets on the ground, so no one got near Pineda.

Stephen Drew – 1-for-3 and his 5th homer, raising his average to .173.  In related news, he’s just about to give his autobiography’s ghostwriter the green light to start the final chapter.

Chase Headley – 2-for-4, hitting .253 on the Yanks.  That would be .223 on the Padres though, so score!

Jose Veras – 1 IP, 0 ER and the save as Chad Qualls worked on Tuesday and, uh, two days before that and, uh, once the week before.  Astros probably want to see what else they have in their pen since they’re going nowhere fast.  Hey, we’re here!  Where?  Nowhere!  That was fast.  This is more a comment on how desperate I need saves, but I grabbed Veras.  Don’t look at me, I’m ugly!

Jake Marisnick – 2-for-4, 1 run, 1 RBI.  First time Marisnick was back in the Bronx since the 1960’s.  The classiest fans in baseball according to them gave him a Bronx cheer to remember.

Trevor Cahill 6 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 10 baserunners, 5 Ks, lowering his ERA to 4.54.  He’s also lowered his ERA more than a full run in his last month of starts.  Granted, his shizz was so pear-shaped it was hard for things to get worse.

Ender Inciarte – 2-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 3rd homer.  Has stolen three bags in the last nine games and is hitting near-.300 in the last week.  Could be a very light schmotato.

Tanner Roark – 7 IP, 0 ER, 6 baserunners, 2 Ks.  Ricardo Montalban and George Hamilton had a lovechild and that’s Tanner Roark.  They’d be very happy since his ERA is at 2.80 with a 1.09 WHIP.  They’d, of course, be happier if he was striking out guys more than his 6.6 K/9 or if he were bedding Latin women, two or three a night.

Bryce Harper – 3-for-4, 1 run.  Only another 40 straight games like that and I will accept you back into the Temple of Grey.

Ryan Zimmerman – Expected back in September.  Right now, he’s working on an underwater treadmill.  Maybe he’s expecting to get traded to the Cubs.  If it downpours, there is no one you want on your team more than Ryan Zimmerman!  Well, maybe Max Patkin.  “There’s a tsunami headed for the coast!”  “There’s only one man that can save us…He can jog underwater!”  That’s Obama, addressing the nation.

    Nice write-up. Had the Birdman, the Real CarGo, Bombista and Eau de Rizzi all going. Also had Nu Samardzjiack Shitty; however, in the fantasy world as in Skippy peanut butter one must take the crunchy with the smooth.

    Have re-installed Cutch22 into the lineup for next week so was thinking of dropping The Aoki Pokey for another arm. The outfield is now Werth, Cutch22, Carlos Gomez and Abreu in the Utility slot. This is what’s available on waiver’s among other names.

    Drop Aoki to pick up any of the following or hold in case anyone of the above OF / Ut get injured before the fantasy season is over?

    a. Wacha
    b. Cashner

    Even though I am currently unemployed, if I take 1st place this year – I’ve got a decent shot – I promise to buy you a $100 martini. If I fail to destroy my opponents, I promise to rock a SAGNOF t-shirt to next years draft.

        Looks like:

        Shoemaker vs. Miami @ home (Wednesday/Alvarez) and vs. Oakland @ home (Sunday/Samardzija)
        Nelson @ SD (Tuesday??/Stults) and I don’t think he’s a 2 start SP (if he is it’s SF/Possibly Bumgarner if he is)

        The teams should be accurate for the most part. Opposing starters your guess is as good as mine. Thought I’d be be nice… that took a while.

    What an embarrassing outing for the Shark. Insult to injury: He uncorks a wild pitch before hanging the split and allowing the 3run jack to Duda (also on my team). Cost my team one RBI (very tight race).

    Likely just a coincidence, but the A’s have been god awful since giving away Cespedes.

    Avisail Garcia or Oswaldo Arcia?

    • Random Dude says:
      (link)

      @papasmurf: I’d go Garcia

    Hey Grey… It’s slim pickings in the streaming area this week but tomorrow Kershaw got pushed back and Haren’s gonna pitch vs Niese in (LA).. Who would you rather have?? I can probly pick both up.. The thing is, I gotta win every week so I know you said drop Lackey for an extra streaming spot but he pitches twice next week but I gotta win this week before I get to next week so I guess cross that bridge when it comes right, or No?? Goin crazy!! LOL

    • Frank White says:

      Or I can grab Haren or Niese for tomorrow and then drop Lackey for Shelby Miller vs Buchanan @ (PHI) on Saturday.. Better?

    Good things Grey. As I am slowly easing out of contention in my league, I am looking at my keepers for next year. Could you rank these players to keep for their 2015 value alone: Myers, polanco, arenado, pederson.

    Your love for arenado is well documented but if polanco can hit for a better average next year those counting stats could be niiiiice.

    Are you kidding me? I mean, are you kidding me?
    I issue one freaking prayer to the FBO yesterday and this is what happens. FMFBL. Honestly.

    Anyway, I realized after waking up this morning that there’s a lesson here. If you want something in this life, do it yourself. And now I’m channeling my inner Pedro Cerrano and denouncing Jobu. That’s it.

    Oh and by the way, I never go on twitter cuz it’s stupid IMO, but last night I was watching the Angels/Sox game on the computer and when Garrett got hurt I couldn’t tell what happened, obviously. So I went on the Sox twitter, and man, people are assholes. Making fun of him and shit, cracking jokes, having a grand ole time at poor Garrett’s expense. Made me sad for humanity. Which was a welcome change from the anger I was feeling all night watching my opponent’s team tear it up for the third straight day. Okay I’m done whining. Thanks for listening.

    Kershaw, Sale, Cueto, Kazmir, Wood, Arrieta, TRoss, Stroman, Roark, Keuchel, Odorizzi

    I stashed Degrom on the DL. Hes slated to start Saturday.
    Does a healthy Degrom earn a spot over somebody else?

      @J: I would actually hold till after the lock see how he does first. I believe he has only 46.2 innings left before shut down anyway. You should decide by his start wether you want to keep him or not before dropping. Make sure you get any moves needed before his dl is removed.

    Considering dropping Khris Davis to activate Myers today and or stash Quackenbush (would likely play Myers today and drop Myers tomorrow for Quack unless Benoit opens a roster spot for me with a DL trip). Davis is on my bench on full schedule days, and I have the likes of A. Garcia, Arcia, Willingham, Reddick available on waivers.

    Hold or is this an OK bit of rosterbation?

    12 team H2H. Playoffs in 1.5 weeks.

    • nick the dick says:
      (link)

      @MooseOutFront: I’d drop davis to activate myers and garcia is the best FA on the list but if youre leaving whichever guy you choose on your bench most days it doesn’t really matter. I wouldn’t drop myers to get quack though, i’m sure benoit will hit the DL for you to do that, or any more time just sitting out sore and he will become the drop. It’s all just rosterbation but it’s crunch time so rub one out!

May he never hit another homer…..until I draft him next year

        @Toe Knee: why do you need the SON values so badly, i dont see how that affects your choice. If he put them, you would just say go with SON so whats the point of the guy even asking the question?

        • Toe Knee says:

            (link)

            @Toe Knee: ok im not sure what you mean, by your statement or wallah, i guess voila, but if he just wanted SON values to choose then he would use them. The majority of people ask streaming questions without putting the values and get a straight answer.

            • Toe Knee says:
              (link)

              @nick the dick: You do your home work most don’t. I do mine. I use every tool available for an edge. If you think SON makes my decisions for me then you would be wrong. For example the Braves worked on Minors release point and skipped a start pitching much better. Because of dl time the season is still early for him and has a track record. Stroman is a small body type and is pitching more inning now than ever b4 . I don’t trust him at this point.

              • nick the dick says:
                (link)

                @Toe Knee: i hear ya, i definitely dont think SON makes your decisions, i can see you mostly know what youre talking about, i just dont think its entirely neccessary to get the values on every stream question to decide. I def feel you on minor, id absolutely give him a whirl there especially after stromans last start, i actually almost said minor, but i doubt if SON said despaigne was valued highest that it would change your answer. Matchups and previous success should mean most and going vs hou and vs tampa are solid matchups.

    You guys think that Myers should be started yet? He was awfully sucky in the spring (and , of course, he O-fer-ed like a boss yesterday). Several months ago, Myers was my biggest drafting regret after Gyorko and Brad Miller, and the only one I couldn’t blame on Grey.

    Also, I think I am a total pain in the ass for asking questions about starts when I can look at SoN like anyone else, but I’m leaning towards starting Keuchel @ NYY today. Is that a badski?

        As for “tranny porn,” I think we need to think of something in the fantasy that’s oddly intriguing, but you just don’t really want to admit to. I dunno, like reading Brandon Funston or something.

    As for why Familia was brought in the 8th? It was bases loaded with 1 out, so it was an important spot… and Terry is an awful manager so he may have just forgot to warm someone else up.

                    @Grey: well its definitely not new but…..

                    Fresh from the meadow with a mellow attitude,
                    I was plannin’ to pursue another quest for the bus,
                    I had to go to San Fran, it’s something that I can’t stand,
                    It’s beggin’ for a ride with mom dukes makes a fuss,
                    I don’t like fussin’ so I ask my older cousin,
                    Could he maybe find time to give me a lift?,
                    He said it is impossible because he has a roster full,
                    Of plans for the day,
                    I had to go and sift through pennies in my jeans,
                    To many it may seem,
                    That the public transportation really isn’t keen,
                    And I agree with the theory,
                    Because it’s 3:30,
                    And the bus was due at 2:35,
                    I iron my Girbauds so I can wait with pride,
                    I waited at the bus stop feeling kinda high,
                    From a spliff that I smoked, I riffed and provoked,
                    A little scene when the bus arrived late like a joke,
                    With a corny punchline, and it was only lunchtime,
                    The bus should’ve been here, the driver had much time,
                    To get his act together, no matter what the weather,
                    Now I’m sittin’ at the bus stop waitin’ like forever

    Any point at all to continue using a DL spot for Darvish? I can snatch Eaton up but I’ve got to do it before Cashner gets activated and my roster freezes until I make room ,probably by dropping the not at Coors next week Stubbs for Eaton and a player to be punted later if Cashner looks OK this weekend.

    Flummoxed. Need starters a little more than closers.

    Sonny Gray and Carrasco are on the wire and my only drops are Benoit, Neshek and Stroman. Could wait until midnight in order to use Stroman’s start tomorrow, but then I miss out on Gray’s start. The latest news is Benoit might not hit the DL.

    Drop Stroman, Neshek or Benoit for Carrasco and/or Gray?

    in 100 years that a pitcher lost a complete game one-hitter ,
    and both did it by giving up a triple .
    the other guy was bob feller , but the guy (name escapes me)
    he was facing also threw a one-hitter .
    btw : that guy that beat feller was the same pitcher that was
    brought in to face the midget, eddie gaudel .

    Dilemma
    Top two teams get a bye
    I’m in third 2 games out of 2nd 4 of first
    Playing a weak opponent this week
    Up in most offense
    Ties in saves despite having 5:3 closers and better ones
    I have mccann stuck in dl spot until I cut someone
    I am down a win and a few ks w 3 starters (2 against each other) vs his 1 more
    I can stream and probably take both categories and I can even add rondon to help w saves
    But I have to cut two to add
    Here is my roster
    C
    1 Bautista
    2 Gordon
    Ss Baez
    3 aramis
    O j upton
    O puig
    O Bruce
    U billy Hamilton
    U holiday
    Bench jd Martinez
    Bench Castro
    Pitching
    Teheren
    Wood
    Rosenthal
    Uehara
    Krod
    Cassilla
    Benoit
    Kennedy
    Kluber
    Pineda
    Mchugh
    Salazar

    Would u cut Castro and jd Martinez to stream and play McCann?
    Would u hold and go catcher less (won’t hurt this week)
    If I cut now I can start miller or minor volgelsong fiers???
    Thanks

    Quackenbush worthy of an add? I literally just got pissed and dropped mejia/familia. I’m convinced mejia will close poorly until one testicle is a visible bulge in his sock. Mejia says ” i want to finish the season, chicks dig the longball, I saw on peter gammons myspace page”.

    Also hittertron loves betts I own him but I’m skeptical. Should I be? Or does he hit/steal enough for a spot on a championship tm? Hes my Mi/back up ss for now.
