1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I have a fantasy team with him and Lincecum on it and I'm still in the middle of the pack. [​IMG]

    so do i, but i also have jose bautista and i'm currently first place!

    ppl thought bautista was a fluke, but he's legit. 40+ homers could happen

    I don't even want to think about how prohibitively expensive Weaver is going to be next year.

    Haren costs a "reasonable" 12mil... Weaver is going to be Johan territory especially with Borass.

    I've always been down on Weaver for some reason, but he's legitimately excellent. I just can't figure out how he gained 2 K/9 over his career average last year when none of his pitches changed.

    Because when people look at him they see Jeff Weaver. But Jered is legit. He could lead the league in Ks again

    It was more that his peripheral numbers never matched his low ERAs, but now they do, and that's weird. His fastball is a little faster than it's ever been before and he throws the slider a little more, but beyond that, he seems to be the same pitcher he ever was, just a lot better somehow.

    People don't take notice until you hit 30, and that's barely half way to 56.

    I'm still thinking he's juicing. Dude didn't hit more than 13 till last year.

    Ethier was gonna be a fantasy stud last year so I picked him up in all my leagues. I lay off him this year, and look how he does?!

    NOW you tell me. Of course I didn't buy Baseball Prospectus this year. My own fault.

    Less than a week later - another no hitter! Justin Verlander's 2nd. Fucker was hitting 100 in the 8th!

    ^What are the odds that a grown up still brings his glove to the game?

    +20,000. I've already vowed that if I'm every lucky enough to catch a foul ball I will look for the closest available kid to hand it off to. I just don't understand what the attaction is holding on to a ball fouled off by Scott Rolen.
