Haha... yes, and when you and Che Guevara finally overthrow America, unicorns will fly out of your urethra.

Slim, you sick bastard. Not even I have gotten to that level of sexual experimentation yet.

Beware- I have mind-melded you. It made me retch, but I know your secrets now.

Matt Holiday to the Cardinals.

Sounds good.

Bad news for my Brewers. As if their starting pitching wasn't already.

Steve, the fact that you think I have some sort of "secret" is pretty amusing.

I'm merely indulging your immense ego.

If that's the case, you should have said "I'm planning on watching as many players as you, and learning how to understand the fundamentals and mechanics of baseball like you so that I might finally beat you."

"Secrets", "luck" , and etc. are for losers. It takes a lot of homework to be this good.
Especially since I am actually quite UN-lucky. I have to work twice as hard.

I was looking into your winning percentages today and even with your very nice (for you) 8-2 win last week against Durham Bulls - you are 15-25 against the top three teams. Basically, more than half your wins against the good teams in this league were against Durham last week.

Thats why your H2H stats are bullshit.
Your team isn't even as good as its record.
You don't want any piece of me in the playoffs, even if you do manage to squeak in. I destroyed you 9-1 a couple weeks ago remember?

You got very, very lucky a few weeks ago. It was 5-5 until the last couple of days.

Maybe you havent noticed, but I'm always 5-5, or therabouts until the last few days. It's how my team is put together. Ask pretty much anyone I've beaten this year. I pull away on Saturdays and Sundays.

Which is why that short week was a close loss for me. My players need a full week to produce numbers and I just ran out of time.

Lucky for me, there is only one all-star week a year.

So, what? You have it down to who has the best stats on Saturday and Sunday? Do you work for Bill James?

You're FOS.

No, my team is made up of guys who are consistant and are able to produce consistant numbers on a weekly basis, which is the time-frame within which we work. Seven times out of ten (or so) that beats people who have flashy numbers but are less consistant. So far it takes my guys about five days to pile up the same stats that most of the other teams in the league are putting up in seven. (at least in enough categories to win, anyways).

That being said, Pujols and A-Roid are bonuses. I dont usually have to worry about them as long as they keep being average or above. I'm talking about players like Scutaro and Abreu. They are the real core of my team and when they don't perform, I am in trouble.

I hope this little chat will make you a better fantasy baseball player. That being said, I kind of doubt you are willing to put in the man hours to familiarize yourself with things like mechanics (for pitchers) and plate discipline and approach (for hitters) that I feel gives me that little bit of extra information that raw data doesn't give. Plus I just like watching baseball.

FWIW I was losing this weeks matchup (though close) until yesterday when I crested, now I am ahead and probably going to stay there. As per my M.O.

I really can't believe I've just given up my entire strategy to everyone, I hope it's too late to do anything about it now. Though it's not exactly like it's been a secret all this time...

Thanks.

Truth be told, I have always thought you were an EXCELLENT fantasy player after the 2nd or 3rd time we played.

And you seem to be a really well-rounded guy- with your film knowledge (and toilet knowledge).

Now- back to regularly scheduled programming. If you see wholesale roster changes, you'll know why.
