    Yadier Molina goes 4/4, rest of my team 3/28

    At least Jasc's day sucks just as bad as mine.

    I have three Rays left handed sluggers.

    Figuring out which one will hit the home run that night is impossible.

    I always bench the one who does, and start the other two

    My team also went 8/32 with 4 runs, 9 RBI, and a stolen base.

    My night is over yet though. I've got Chase Headley and Jayson Werth still playing.

    If Strasburg gets the win tonight I'm going to have to start Grienke because I'll be tied in the wins category. If he doesn't I can pull him because I have enough of a lead in the other pitching stats that I don't need him.

    I started a new franchise with the latest OSFM roster and took the Oakland A's to the playoffs and all I did was sign a reliever at the start of the year and trade Brandon McCarthy to Atlanta for Freddie Freeman, Brandon Beachy, and some young 3B prospect before the deadline. Even got by the Yankees in the first round in 4 games (who went 122-40 after acquiring Roy Halladay for Pineda and someone else). Then got swept by the eventual champion Texas Rangers.

    Also, Matt Garza allowed a leadoff hit to Jimmy Rollins in the bottom of the 1st and has since retired 18 in a row with 9 strikeouts, totally killing my K lead over Nirya and generally making the Phillies look silly.

  • the cubs also got their first homer from an outfielder this season

  • At this point a Cubs series win seems as rare as a perfect game, so I'll take what I can get. And with that he walks his first batter.

  • Goose!Goose! Registered User regular
    I'm just bummed that he allowed that first hit. Another perfect game woulda been cool.

    My hitting was absolutely awful this week. Thank god my pitching turned it around.

    Andruw Jones helps me out with a HR to knock the save situation off and instead of Mo coming in for the 9th its Dave Robertson.

    Greinke and the Cardinals offense, just completely screwing me over in multiple ways.

    Yes. Joey Votto. Doing Joey Votto things. For the first time this year. Right when I needed it the most.

    Yeah, Greinke is dealing but I still made the better decision to sit him since I was only up by 3 TB.

    I hate the TB stat because it goes against everything I'm used to in fantasy baseball which is work in as many starts as I can.

    Mike..err..Giancarlo Stanton just woke the fuck up. Thank you for that.

  • Goose!Goose! Registered User regular
    Yeah, TB is pretty dumb and should be replaced.

  • Raijin QuickfootRaijin Quickfoot I got the shotgun, you got the briefcase It's all in the game though, right?Registered User, ClubPA regular
    I'm up 10-2 right now but my lead in some of these stats is razor thin. I'm going to win but it could easily end up more like 7-4 if I'm unlucky.

    Maybe next year we can do Holds instead of TB. It would make relievers worth picking.

    Hold might work. TB just sucks because it punishes you for having more pitchers.

    By the way...this week my pitchers have an ERA of 1.70.

    All of them aces.

    Whatever replaces it needs to be a percentage based stat.

    And I nominate raising innngs pitched by another 10 to help offset the shittyness of TB.

  • SchideSchide D-Von! Get the Tables!Registered User regular
    We don't need holds, we don't even own the closers as it is, why would we want even more relievers? We can only have 3 going at any one time anyway.

    If you want something that makes relievers a bit more valuable then you'd want something like K/9, or some other ratio stat.

    I think the purpose of TB was to have another counting stat so you couldn't replace it with a ratio stat.

    Maybe just BB?

    That would work, but then I'd suggest replacing WHIP with H/9 so that walks aren't measured in two categories. It's not essential though.

    EDIT: Or replace TB with home runs since they are an essential part of FIP and DIPS and whatnot.

    Yeah, HR allowed would be alright with me.

    As for measuring twice, we measure HRs and SLG so why not BB and WHIP?

    Don't ask me. I was never sure why we needed six categories in the first place.

    The point is moot.

    I can't change it until next year.

    Next year we will change it.

    I will likely raise the IP barrier to 25 or 30 very soon.

    Yeah this was a bad week for me.

    Fucking Bud Norris killed me.

    You're slugging has been outrageous all week though.

    Almost forgot to bench Fernando Rodney. I'm winning every pitching stat so there is no need. If he has a rough outing and gives up 5 TB I could lose a point.

    Unless Evan Longoria has an absolute monstrous night I'll win 10-2 keeping first place and actually gaining some insurance games.

    I tied with The Borys, 6-6

    Normally I'd be upset, but I still have a winning record, so I'll take it

    You should raise it right now so you void all your pitching points :-)

    Yeah, I have a nice power team, good OBP as well. My pitching has been really good too, except for Bud Norris even though he did do his job and give me some Ks. You HOWEVER and your pitching, damn you.

    My guys were on point this week. It's a good staff. I think I can ride it to the championship.
