Thanks for proving my point Steve. Yes, I'm talking head to head categories, which is how you win
, not your overall winning record. Your overall standing is NOT how you win, it just shows how lucky you've been. You are the dunce.
I know- it's better. Nos. 10, 12 , 14, 15, 20, 27, 46, 68. You can't read either?
Steve, you blind old fool, you are smoking crack again. Your team's Yahoo offensive player rankings as of this morning are as follows: 616, 15, 61, 27, 162, 14, 198, 262, 33, 132, 154 Which is an average player ranking of 152.1 mine are: 100, 69, 3, 213, 86, 21, 41, 228, 20, 102, 6, 124 Which is an average player ranking of 84.4 So basically, as far as Yahoo! scoring is concerned, my offensive players are ranked much higher than yours. I love how every time I say something like this, you reply with a blatant and easily disprovable lie. You just make up numbers out of your head that you hope nobody researches. (and just so there's no excuse, even WITHOUT your horrible catcher, who contributes in exactly two statistical categories, and stinks up your whole lineup - your offensive squad is still only an average of 96.1)
I have 38 quality starts, you have 39. My mistake- guess I was looking at wins. I have 39
, you have 23
. That's OBLITERATION.
Yes, it is, but W and HLD alone will not allow you beat me. No matter how many stats you pile up in the same couple of categories, I have a much more balanced team than you, and I will out play you in more categories than that on a week to week basis.
My ERA is 2.82, yours 2.94. My WHIP 1.11, yours 1.14. My K/9 7.6, Yours 7.0. 3 for 3- a solid trouncing.
Like I said, not "obliteration" by a longshot. ERA and WHIP are pretty much even. k/9 you have the edge as far as the season goes, but with Sabbathia and Lincecum hitting their strides, i am confident that I can at least match, and probably beat you any given week in all three categories.
It was part of my strategy to go for Holds, not Saves. Guess why, Rocket Scientist?
Um... because you couldn't evaluate closer talent for shit? Maybe its because, like the rest of your team, you got overly enamored with one or two statistical categories and put all your energy into pumping up one stat instead of making sure all your stat categories could produce.
Anyone who can't get under 4.00 in Fantasy is a retard. Sound familiar? Mine will get better as I'm willing to dump players, and you will hold on to Sabbathia and Hernandez for IP like a dumb shit.
Uh, Steve, I hate to break it to you, but this makes you sound like an ignorant asshole.
For the Season, there are only 5 teams in our league with a team ERA under 4.00. Neither one of US are on that list. My ERA will get better because I have great pitchers who traditionally start off the season slow, and then become studs who are consistently among the league leaders in several statistical categories.. I don't believe for a second that you'd dump Brandon Webb if he had a rough month. Sabbathia's "settling into his career average" as you so aptly put it a few posts ago...his last 4 games : 27 innings, 32 SO, 6 walks, 1.98 ERA Livan Hernandez goes deep in games, piles up IP, QS, W, and threw a complete game one run ballgame last week. I know he's not going to stay hot forever, but you'd be an idiot to ditch him while he's rolling.
Same with .300. Strangely enough we have EXACTLY the same BA. That makes hitting 4-4-1. But I'm 5-0 in H2H and you're 1-3-1.
Again, you are making up, misreading, or just too lazy to look up the numbers. You win BA as far as season-long statistics go by quite a bit. H, SB,BA, and OBP are your offensive strongsuits. In our H2H matchup though I was able to steal H away from you and tie up OBP, which was generally unnecessary considering that I nearly swept the pitching categories from you without really trying.
Wanna bet on it, or is it too expensive to keep shipping salmon to me (quite good by the way)?
Steve, why are you always so eager to "bet" me? Why don't you shut up, and prove that you can even hang in the same league with me instead? If we'd bet nearly as often as you'd wanted to, you'd have like a 1-10 record against me. As it is, I'm not interested in betting, and I don't have any money.
I'd think if God exists he/she/it would probably view hubris and insane pursuit of vengeance equally.
Hubris? In Ancient Greece, "hubris" referred to actions taken in order to shame and humiliate the victim, thereby making oneself seem superior.That sounds exactly like you, except that you have no reason or motivation to feel superior to me in this particular arena. I've already repeatedly PROVED my superiority, year after year after year. And I'm on my way to doing it again. I only point it out when you get that "holier than thou", "I know more about fantasy sports than you" attitude, when it should be pretty clear to everyone at this stage that you really don't. You just like shooting your mouth off and being a prick. Thats part of it I guess. You can also add, dishonesty, ignorance, being an extremely poor loser, and not knowing when to shut up when you have nothing intelligent to say, to the list.
Naaah- nothing like the NL ERA leader, the co-leaders in wins in the AL, and the 2nd place RBI man in the NL. 4 top 20 players. You are the consummate buffoon.
Volquez has also issued the 4th most walks in the NL. Sooner, rather than later, thats going to catch up with him. Congrats on your pickup.
As for Santana and Saunders: those are actually pretty good acquisitions for you right NOW. They have been hot. Saunders has never pitched more than 107 innings in a season though, and I doubt he's going to be much of a factor or be able to remain playing at this high a level by week 11. Ervin Santana looks like Johan Santana for the moment, but the problem is this - A; He's pitched well against shitty teams like KC. B: He was 7-14 last year with a 5.76 ERA (and the Angels were great last year!) and C: He's traditionally a very streaky pitcher, who's mechanics fall apart on him on a regular basis. Good luck with both of them. I'll be waiting for you to drop Webb on the waivers when he has a couple bad games.
X-Man is currently second in the NL in RBI, but thats semantics. He was a good pickup. So you have the number 2 NL RBI guy. Good job. I have numbers 3,5,7, and 12 on that list.
