Re: MLB 2012 (random postings/events)

One of my favorite, if not my favorite, players of all time called it a career this week.

Kudos Pudge. See you in Cooperstown

Re: MLB 2012 (random postings/events)

Paul Konerko (my favorite current player along with Jim Thome) hit his 400th HR last night.

Also, the Sox' Phillip Humber threw the 21st perfect game in history. The Sox just had one with Mark Buerhle in 2009 and the team owns 3 of the 21 all-time perfect games.







(White Sox fan obviously...kills me to see Thome back in Philly and on the Twins last year)

Wow. That might explain Lester's suckage this year...he's killing my fantasy team.


Actually...I've getting torched by every Red Sox player on my two teams:


Lester: last two games he had 5 and 7 ER...ERA for year is 6.00!
Becket: about the same as Lester
A. Gonzales: only 2 HR
Crawford: DL
Ellsbury: DL
*picked up and dropped Aceves and Bard trying to find their closer...they're all burning the place down.



I HATE THIS TEAM.

I wish I knew you played Fantasy Baseball I was looking for a league to join all of March. I want a league where folks don't give up in July.

Re: MLB 2012 (random postings/events)

You'll have to let me know next year. I'm in a couple of long-running leagues with the same main core of guys, but we usually have a team or two that leaves and we have to replace. One is a keeper league so you could inherit a team.

Re: MLB 2012 (random postings/events)

I didn't know it was possible to get a hate crime charge when the victims were white and the offender, *cough*, wasn't.

That guy just keeps topping himself.

What does 250 million net you these days in MLB?

Albert Pujols of Los Angeles Angels finishes April homerless - ESPN Los Angeles


Apparently not any home runs.


Wonder if they are asking for a mulligan on that contract right about now...lol

I still remember that. I still don't see how they even let him back into baseball after a stunt like that.

Re: MLB 2012 (random postings/events)

Maybe not that random this year, but has anyone else had the feeling that the Red Sox should just play the Yankees 162 times a year so that way the hate can flow freely? This year has been the first year in maybe six or seven that I can remember people talking about any other team than those guys. Admittedly I'm not a huge follower of MLB but has it always been like this?

I remember it wasn't always Yankees/Red Sox until the Red Sox finally won that elusive World Series...

Probably because of that sorry ass system that allows two teams to overspend so they get to collect all the stars. It's why MLB is crap for the most part. Personally I think Boston peaked a few years back and will be going on a decline while trying to overpay for above average talent. (aka...carl crawford) I bet they hate signing that dude...lol

I mean I'm a devout Yankees hater but Mo Rivera is a legend. So this sorta sucks...
