Oh, SaltyBiscuits -- I am willing to bet you a pound of pastrami that Prince Fielder and Carlos Lee will both have more RBIs after the all-star break than will Cracky McSmokesalot. His numbers will no doubt be very good by season's end, but I'm thinking he maxes out around 125 RBIs -- which means he's got about fifty left in his bat from here to October. Remember, Justin Morneau had 24 HRs and 74 RBIs at the all-star break last year. Afterwards, not so much.
So for some reason, Josh will suddenly stop knocking batters in? You can't undervalue his second half just because his first was so productive. Oh, and CrackPipe does not play on a crappy offensive team like Morneau did. He plays on the TEXAS RANGERS (capitalized in order to emphasize their collective power) who score roughly 134 runs a game (but are a sub .500 team? How does that happen. Oh yeah, when you have crappy pitching and fielding) That being said, their lineup is pretty boss.

I'll take you up on that bet. I love pastrami.

As for arid outfields, I forgot to mention the Huckleberries. Juan Pierre, Victorino and Carlos Gomez? Excellent choices, if this was Fantasy 4x100 Relay.
Yeah, speed sure sucks. Wish I had the vaunted relief pitching lineup of, Kobayashi, Dotel, Hinshaw, Backne, and Soriano. If you're going to punt saves just do it!

You forgot Saito! A member of the vaunted no-brainer club! 48 years young!

My rogue's gallery of misfits, gimps, rag-arms and green horns will take you all yet! Saves ain't nothing but a number.

Yeah

Numbers that actually count. What the hell am I talkin about, I have 1 closer and he's 15 innings away from becoming the next excuse for the Cubbies.

Billy Goats, Bartmen and Woodys

Who will go 0 for tonight? So far we have No Glove No Love, Dick Harden, J.O.B., Rod Beck's DW 0-8 right now, Daniel Plainview (6 speculations, no oil), and then some schmohawks who haven't had an at bat yet.

Colon got reamed tonight.

Colon was an enema of the people.

Colon was half the man he usually is: He was Semi-Colon.

On the upside, he was the only guy on the field swinging harder than Dustin Pedroia.

Stick Colon on a bench and it won't as bad as his twisted back in the morning.
