  1. Cain's 2-run rocket doesn't make the highlights but Braun's "ground ball single" does? Lol, star calls even extend to the editing room.
  2. King Kelly definitely qualified near the end of his career, the bold lettering in honor of his captain's status wasn't a slimming look either
  3. Jesus Montero's line "I wasn't doing nothing, just eating" should at least earn him a spot in the minors on the All Fat dynasty league
  4. I find it amazing how few batters even the best pitchers were striking out in the mid-late 70s and early-mid 80s. Stone '80 is a great example. He threw 250 innings, waked over 100 and only struck out 150! And he won 25 games with a 2.50 ERA! A lot of this had to do with many pitchers relying more on their fastballs. I was only born in '86, but I've watched a lot of old games from the 70s and 80s. Pitchers would just pump sinkers and try to pile up GBs to work deep into games. There were very few guys who had a wide variety of secondary pitches. Guys like Koufax and Nolan Ryan had a
  5. since this thread got merged, biggest 1 year wonder I remember was John Tudor in '85 with the Cards. A back of the rotation type before that, injury prone (and a sour attitude) afterwards, but for one season he was almost unhittable: 21-8, 1.93 ERA, .938 WHIP, 14 complete games, 10 shutouts
  6. That's true, he'd had some solid juicer years before that but if remember right in '07 and again at the start of '08 he looked like he was back to being the old Melvin.Guess Fedex had some shipping delays getting those vitamins to the Balt clubhouse around then
  7. Melvin Mora in 2008 with the O's, had one of the hotter streaks ever seen, after a lousy start he went absolutely ballistic in late July/August before getting hurt, but always remember that cause I was cursed at 3B that year and Melvin's insane production as a desperation flier was like a miracle. Another guy I remember was Kaz Matsui when he was reborn in Col in 2007 as a basestealing run scoring speed demon. Lol, then the anal fissures put an end to that
  8. It's cause it's on Fox. I get McCarver/Buck doing the RedSox/Yankee game. That Saturday blackout really sucks. it's like Fox and the league have combined to create maximum torture for everyone no matter what they do, and calling it "Baseball Night in America" is a sick joke, we get less games than any other time of the week.
  9. just fyi, MLB.tv is showing free games for nearly the whole league today, everything except ESPN's 8pm games
  10. The problem with try to deal him after a string of good starts is that almost everyone is sure he'll get hurt so you can never really sell high. I suppose in theory there are owners out there who think he'll stay healthy, or who are having such pitching woes they're desperate for a quality arm even if they think it's shortlived, but just don't see getting a whole lot back for him. Maybe the best trade method might be to use him as a sweetener to get you over the top in another deal, IDK... My thoughts on BA were to get him cheap and roll with him as long as he's healthy, whatever that might
  11. K - thanks. Wasn't planning on it, but nice to know I'm not missing anything major. I tried to download that stupid plugin a couple times last year, it was annoying to download and never worked anyway
  12. lol notice no one on the astros has any dirt on their uniforms, those new jerseys look fantastic, never having to run the bases or slide really helps the colors stay crisp, it's like I've got HD tv all of a sudden this game just feels like a tease, hate that Colon taking Strailly's spot away so much
  13. I think of Anderson the way used to think of Rich Harden: either draft him late or snag as a FA, as long as he's healthy he'll be very good but the moment he gets a hangnail drop the dude and don't look back cause that hangnail always seems to lead to surgery. Great value for where get him, guy just gives hitters fits, but one of those guys where I figure anything that get from him at all is bonus cause just can't/won't plan on him staying healthy. Kind of nice having players like that cause don't get overly worked up either way about them, if they're healthy that's awesome and if not oh well
  14. ahh, I knew something was missing from my weekend football experience and here it is, the Wipo thread is reanimated. When those pyknic d*cks hacked RW I bet the WiPo thread hacked them back.
  15. This thread has been amazing for hate, it doesn't even have to be WiPo, Josh Gordon's name came up and people started ripping each other, it's actually weird how much anger happens in here. Every time a reasonable, informed, respectful discussion about WiPo gets going, some errant piece of rage comes randomly sailing across the thread like a Blaine Gabbert pass. Actually been brooding on why there's so much anger and overreaction in this thread-- maybe it's because Powell is such a nebulous figure that he's more like a symbol of something than an actual player so people read extra into the si
  16. No way. Green is the #1 claim this week. Powell, I would say is about equal to Starks, both of which are worth a grab for sure if there's any way you can make room on your bench. Powell is the better pickup if he's able to play this week, otherwise Starks is. Josh Gordon is the number 1 claim this week, powell second and green third. green is equal to starks, starks knows the offense better. Sorry to get off topic. But how is Gordon even in the same stratosphere as the RBs?? The kid only had 2 catches this week. And BOTH were because of blown coverages. Not to mention Brandon Weedo
  17. at long last, some tape to study. Am assuming that footage is from Belichick's youtube account?
  18. My favorite thing about this thread is that it's the worst in the forum, it's so bad I actually like it, and even respect it in a sick way. It's a hideously diseased monstrosity out of the late night creature feature that refuses to die. Shoot it, stab it, set it on fire, freeze it with liquid nitrogen, nuke it from orbit, doesn't matter-- it keeps coming back! Half the time the only reason it gets bumped is from people saying how much it sucks, which just adds to the foulness. The thread began as an act of hope, the belief that some dude who has barely played since high school could become a

  20. Who cares how many extra snaps Powell played on passing downs. He didn't even catch many balls. For all the extra snaps he played over Williams he ended up catching only 1 more pass. So he was basically a blocking dummy out there. If you want to hang your hat on that go ahead. I've got absolutely no problem with people picking him up and hoping. I agree with you jnormy you have to be proactive. But the positive spin some of you guys are trying to put on the last game is so ridiculous. all i was doing was disproving your comment that ryan williams is a workhorse back similar to lynch. i was
  21. Something about putting my money where my mouth is: Everyone best be buying this lottery ticket right. NOW. and the Mantooth Award goes to...Robrain, for going all in across the board on the all-time flier of fliers
  22. what Troll Schwartz has been doing to fantasy owners all year http://youtu.be/gwuHhlD5dO0
  23. this is all part of why love fantasy sports: getting all interested in a dude I honestly never heard of till very recently (and why these boards can be invaluable for fantasy owners), will be psyched to watch the AZ game tomorrow when otherwise wouldn't care less, plus the search for a good nickname as a potential cinderella story unfolds. Pow! the world just got a little more interesting
  24. You seem to be measuring those RB's worth as if they actually had any kind of feature back role last season, which they really didn't. We're saying if William Powell gets the opportunity, he will then perform. Jonathan Dwyer got the opportunity last season during Week 5 and had 11 carries for 107 rushing yards, along with 1 reception for 6 receiving yards. And that was while splitting time with Isaac Redman that game, who had 15 carries for less than half that amount of yards, and 3 receptions. Dwyer did not get the opportunity to perform during the regular season this year, as the coaches
