Completely Random Wednesday Thoughts

- Francisco Liriano sucks. I can't recall watching a pitcher so terrified to throw the ball over the plate.

- Is it just me, or does Justin Morneau swing at every single breaking pitch from a lefty? He's not nearly as bad as Cuddyer, because with Morneau most of them are at least near the plate and he can foul it off if he has two strikes, but still. I swear he swings at every slider. Of course, as I type this he takes a fastball right down the middle for a called third strike with two on and nobody out.

- I am going to be playing in a college basketball fantasy league this year. The rules aren't set yet, like I don't know which stats we are using and I don't know what kind of restrictions on conferences, if any, will be in play, but it sounds awesome and it also sounds terrifying. It also doesn't help that I can't find any websites with any kind of lists that help. So far I think my list goes
1. Luke Harangody, even though I hate him
2. Cole Aldrich
3. Craig Brackins
4. Sherron Collins
5. Kalin Lucas
6. Evan Turner
7. Devan Downey
8. Greg Monroe
9. Kyle Singler
10. Manny Harris

That's about as far as I can get. When do I take Ralph Sampson do you think? Round 2? Round 3?

- Does anybody else just turn the game off when R.A. Dickey makes an appearance?

- Who's more disappointing than Grady Sizemore (on my fantasy team) this year? Not counting guys who have been injured almost the entire season like Jose Reyes (on my fantasy team). Career lows this season in average, on-base pct, and slugging, including a huge drop in doubles and home runs.

Check this. Career: .281/.372/.496, OPS+ of 126 (equivalent to Justin Morneau in his career)
This year: .227/.326/.433, OPS+ of 96 (equal to Nick Punto last year)

I might be crazy here, but I'm going to go ahead and toss out the steroids card.

- Correct me if I'm wrong, but last year didn't Gardy throw a fit about how you couldn't blame Guerrier for melting down at the end of the season because he was overworked? And, once again this season, there is essentially nobody who is good in the bullpen, to the pathetic point that Guerrier is actually important again. So, tell me why, oh why oh why you put Guerrier in when you are down 8-1 in the 8th inning?

- I know I've bashed Shark Week on here more than once or twice, and yes, once again this year it is pretty week, filled with 90% shark attack reenactments which are a complete waste of time, but I did find a big ole gem. The show is called Deadly Waters, and it's exactly what Shark Week used to be; cool new footage with some science mixed in. It's beautiful. It's everything I want out of my shark week. It's straight up awesome. They are replaying it on Discovery at 5pm on Saturday. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

Guerrier pitched the 8th because he hadn't pitched since Friday which was the last time the game was close enough for him to see action.

PS Can Snake and I get in on the fantasy college hoops action?

That makes sense then I suppose.

I will look into it, but I think it's full. You guys can be partners on my team if you want. I'll let you know once I get more info.

Fine, I will win your fantasy league for you. The key is going to be to fill up on those small conference guys who are way better than everyone else in their crap conferences. Get a bunch of Stephen Curry/Morris Almond/Jason Thompson types and you will dominate. Once guys like Lucas, Turner, etc. get in to conference play there numbers won't compare to guys like those even though they may be "better" players.

Also, you stole more of your material from me again.

WWWWWW said...

Well no shit captain obvious. So what you're saying is in order to win a stats based fantasy league, I need to have the guys with the best stats? GROUND BREAKING!

I'm about 99% sure it will be limited to something like the main conferences + gonzaga & memphis.

snacks said...

You are the dipshit whose top ten players were only major conference players. And I was pointing out to you that the guys with the best stats usually don't come from the major conferences, a fact you were not sharp enough to observe. I said a lot more than simply that you need the guys with the best stats - I told you where to find those guys. Learn to fucking read.

If its limited only to the major conferences, of course that strategy doesn't apply.

WWWWWW said...

Ok, give me your top ten off the top of your head without looking anything up. I will admit I don't know who had the crazy stats in the smaller conferences last year who is back again this year.

sounds like it's time for a tickle fight between you two little girls.
