    I had Francoeur on the bench when he hit 2 HRs and had 7RBI.
    So... what? It wouldn't have made a difference. [​IMG] You would have been closer, (maybe less embarrasing for you) but you still would have lost both those categories. I beat you pretty easily. Its 13-3 and the stats (especially pitching) aren't even that close. Oh, and I'm still first in the standings for the moment. Team 1234567 is going to give me a really good matchup next week though, I can't not pay attention and still trounce them like I can with you. I might even lose next week and drop in the rankings... Anyways, its about as fun playing you as it is beating up the special ed students, you talk a big game, but are impotent as always when it comes down to the actual challenge.
    Steve... still holding on to hope that you can defy history and do something you've never done in three years of trying. It's admirable, but your team is weak now, and it will be weak and injured in September. You have ONE DECENT PITCHER. You can't win any league like that, Especially a league that I'm in. I am better than you and always have been. You better hope some waiver pitcher has a breakout year, or you can make a trade with someone REALLY stupid. Your team needs help bad. You might not even crack the top half of the standings by years end the way its going so far...

    Ummm...I have Webb AND Chris Young, douchebag. You have Sabathia, who sucks so far this year, Shields who will get hurt, and Aaron Harang, who never was much good anyway. You're getting LUCKY with your closers- they won't keep up the pace.

    AND I'm the one who picked up Carmona and Tulo last year. And rode Freddy Sanchez through his hot streak. Only thing I missed was Garret Anderson's 6HR/20RBI streak which cost me 1st in another league. You remember- one of the ones I invited you to join but you were too much of a p***y.

    Bannister had as good a day today as Oliver Perez had a bad one. I love Lincecum- but he AND Bannister pitch for last place teams.

    Don't think you'll be sittin so pretty even a month from now.

    I don't expect to beat everyone in the league. I just expect to beat you. Your team is weak. You have no idea what you are talking about, and its obvious. So I'm not going to debate our rosters any more, you haven't got anything but wrongheaded opinions unsupported by facts. [​IMG] Enjoy your mediocrity.

    If I'm mediocre, which I might be, you are truly awful. Since you are clearly historically worse than me. You have never beaten me. You have never really even been that close. Just keep that in mind when your superiority complex starts acting up again. You have never beat me. EVER. And I doubt you ever will, because you are just not very smart. I'm still laughing heartily at your assertion that Aaron Harang was "never much good"... Seriously, one of the most ignorant things I've ever heard out of anyone who's played Fantasy Baseball. Sorry if being one of the most consistent upper tier fantasy pitchers in the league, 230+ innings 200+ strikeouts, and 16 wins a year doesn't live up to your standards. He's better than Chris Young in most of the statistics we score by. By a lot. Its quite obvious who the fool is here, and it ain't me.

    Lifetime Harang is 63-49 with a 4.15 ERA. In 06 he threw 6 complete games, which would lead any NORMAL person to wonder when that will catch up with him and question his durability (including the 230 innings the last 2 years). Can you say Jason Schmidt or Chris Carpenter, Slim?

    Chris Young, on the other hand, is a rising star with lots of upside:

    About the winning percentage, but much lower ERA, younger, and higher K/9.

    Hernandez throws lots of innings, but is a pudgy career under achiever with a .500 record and a 2 point K/9.

    Bannister looks great SO FAR this year, but he has a low K/9, and pitches for the Royals.

    Lincecum looked great his first few starts last year, then faded fast with an ERA of around 5.

    Shields ain't bad- he's a good pick. I'll give you that.

    You're right. Debating rosters is useless.

    You've got your head start. Let's see what you do with it.

    Oh yeah- Oliver Perez is another good pick. I was gonna take him the round you got him.

    The only person I've ever heard question his durability is you. He's not injury prone, and his mechanics are sound. He's never spent ANY time on the DL, and he's never had any significant throwing issues. You are confusing what MIGHT happen with what IS happening: Not only has his ERA dropped every year since 2003, so has his BB/9 ratio, and WHIP. His K's increase every year. In 2006 when he pitched those 6 CG's, he started 35 games. He had no issues that year, the following year when he started 34 games, or so far this year. You are reaching at straws. Young, on the other hand, has NEVER pitched a complete game. has NEVER won more than 12 games in a season, walks over a batter per nine more than Harang. and he's had a fairly serious oblique and a back injury that caused him to sit on the 15 day DL last year, and a groin injury when he returned that caused him to leave several games early. Harang's only "injury" was a "muscle soreness of the lower back" after pitching 10 innings of baseball. He missed exactly zero starts and left exactly one game early (that one) due to injury in his career. Young is developing nicely into an outstanding pitcher. Aaron Harang is ALREADY one, and to be perfectly honest, if you can't see that - you don't see anything. I'll take consistently excellent statistics over hope and speculation any day. Problem with Chris Young being a "rising star" is that he's only one year younger than Aaron Harang. He's 29 years old.

    Evidently I permanently damaged Slim's psyche by questioning his draft a couple of years ago in football when he ASKED for comments on it. He's sort of a demented Clint Eastwood.

    I have to admit so far he's beaten me every time in Fantasy Sports. But the South will rise again.

    As for betting on sports, I beat him every time. I'm still enjoying some delicious salmon he sent after the Packers beat the Seahawks in the playoffs.

    With some crow for the turn of events SO FAR in baseball.

    Hello, Slim.


    How goes it chum? I took it easy on the lady of our league last week. Don't take it as a sign of weakness.

    You got anything left in the tank, Whacked? Now would be a good time for a weekend come-from-behind surprise victory. I bet Steve is wearing his rally-cap for you.

    I don't mean to brag, I don't mean to boast, but I'm like hot butter on your breakfast toast.

    I bet at this point everyone has their rally cap on for him.

    No one likes a sore winner.

    Especially when it's 5 weeks into the season and he has a shitty team.

    What can I say? My Troy Glaus-at-the-Coor bet didn't do too hot, while Shields & Co. pulled off some miracles to give you the lead in IP & QS.

    It'd be close regardless. And yes, I have my rally cap on too.

    Edit: Chad Qualls, wow. [​IMG]

    You make me laugh Steve. You don't know a damn thing about strategy or fantasy baseball. If my team is so shitty, how come I have a winning record in 11 out of 17 statistical categories for the season and you have only managed 7? Just for the kids at home, that means that per week, per category, Steve is only able to win .411 of the statistical categories consistently. I on the other hand, have a league leading .647 winning percentage per category, per week. I fully expect that number to be tempered a little as the season goes on, but we are a quarter or so of the way through the year already. Just wanted to point out that little fact so everyone is aware of how much Steve knows about winning. Nothing. since so far, he's losing more than he's winning.


    Did I not completely destroy you 13-3 in week 2? Your jaw keeps flapping, but you continue to prove nothing but your incompetence.

    Shields & Co. pulled off some miracles to give you the lead in IP & QS.

    By the way, those aren't "miracles". If you'll notice, I am second in innings pitched, and tied for first in QS. Its called consistency in excellence. Don't let Steve fool you with his ignorant shit talking, My team is much better than he gives me credit for. Which is why I've been leading the league by a pretty good margin for the first quarter of a season. I'm not saying its gonna stay that way, but I'd rather be in first... than in fourth.

    Then why is your winning pct. .618 and mine .528, Einstein? Perhaps because I'm catching you and will soon go ahead?

    Utley and Burrell are carrying your hitters. As they cool off you'll be in an even bigger load of shit than you are now. Fading Fast- your crappy team starting to settle into their shitty historical numbers.The only reason you're in first is because you had good weeks in 1 and 2.

    WHO are you second in QS to? ME- and it's not close. I'm obliterating you in W, H, ERA, WHIP, and K/9. You're winning saves and IP- 3 out of 8- .375 to .625 for me. As I said in the beginning of the season- your pitchers suck.

    As for hitters you have R, HR, RBI, 3B (by one). I have 2B, SB, H, AVG, OBP. 5-4 for me.

    I jockeyed my team around after the first 2 weeks, and since then have gained 5 games on you, and performed much better in head-to-head stats. Perhaps it'll be more by the end of this week. As I said at the time, I was just giving you a head start to prove my total dominance over you.

    I can't wait for week 11 to stomp you and grind you under my boot.

    No... your math sucks. Do it again.

    You have a winning record in 7 out of 17 statistical categories. That is not .528, dunce.


    Utley and Burrell huh? Strange. Lets see, last time I checked, I have the 2nd,6th,17th, 29th, 57th, 90th, and 93rd ranked position players in the Yahoo fantasy game on my roster. Your team doesn't even come close.

    Utley and Burrell have both been slumping for a week now, I'm still winning. In fact, I'd still be beating you if we were playing head to head this week. Go figure.

    WTF are you talking about? I am not second in QS. As of right now, if Vasquez gets a QS - we will be tied. If he doesn't get a QS, I am beating you and in first place. You are a dunce.
    You obviously can't read. I don't really know what to tell you. Your stats are wrong. Obliterated in ERA and WHIP? I wouldn't call that being obliterated. We are pretty damn even. The only reason you are ahead in HLD's is because you are so damn far behind in SVs . You don't have a closer worth a shit.

    Frankly, I don't even think you are going to get that close to beating me. Remember that God hates you, and your false pride. You said the same thing before week 2, and look how bad you did. 13-3 just to remind you. I've been tweaking my team a little too, as has everyone else in the league, don't worry, I've seen every one you've picked up, and none of them scare me much.

    So, what happens in week eleven when you lose to me AGAIN? You are just going to keep on babbling incoherently and making excuses, aren't you?

    Hahaha

    Yes, because I'm "settling" into a team with a +.300 Batting average and a pitching staff with a sub 4.0 ERA for the past month, glad to see you are paying attention Steve.

    You're talking about head to head categories, not standings. Which is how you WIN. Who's the dunce?

    I know- it's better. Nos. 10, 12 , 14, 15, 20, 27, 46, 68. You can't read either?

    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.

    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.

    It was part of my strategy to go for Holds, not Saves. Guess why, Rocket Scientist?

    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.

    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.

    Wanna bet on it, or is it too expensive to keep shipping salmon to me (quite good by the way)?

    I'd think if God exists he/she/it would probably view hubris and insane pursuit of vengeance equally.

    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.

    Nope- gonna beat you like a drum and shut your yap for a nanosecond or so...
