jesus i took a bath last night - dropped from middle of the pack to 12th. not quite Corrosion Of Conforto territory, but still not good.

omar little, Wednesday, 24 April 2019 15:31 (two months ago) link

it is astonishing, i'm not sure what happened. everything is terrible.

omar little, Wednesday, 24 April 2019 15:32 (two months ago) link

I’m impressed really.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Wednesday, 24 April 2019 16:35 (two months ago) link

you ready for tomorrow Barry? 1.25 seasons of waiting!

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Friday, 26 April 2019 03:51 (two months ago) link

Hell yes dude, I'm not sure if I'm more excited for the fantasy or real life Vlad era.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Friday, 26 April 2019 04:48 (two months ago) link

Virtually the only good thing I’ve done this year is draft Tatis Jr, the poor man’s Vlad Jr.

I had a dream nightmare last night my roster was replaced with the Detroit Tigers

three weeks pass...

two problems you might be able to help me with:

1) i have tim anderson and paul dejong, i don't need both. would trade one for a 2B, or maybe 1B, or maybe pitcher of some variety.
2) my potential keepers for 2020 include four 27-29 studs (arenado, judge, castillo, betts -- all 27 next year except arenado who will be 28) but my under 27 crop is (comparatively) weak (buxton, robles, wander franco, mcmahon). i'm definitely listening if someone finds themselves in the opposite situation, looking to shore up their mid-age keepers.

3 QS & 0 wins is absolutely the name of my game fwiw.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 23 May 2019 23:21 (one month ago) link

Not bad! I just checked, and look what my relievers strung together today:

uhhhhh hey so this is awkward.

when i accepted the trade i didnt see mookie in it at all.

i thought it was over the top doing winker and ozzie for lourdes but acceptedf anyweay. then i saw the email, and nightmares.

any chance we can reverse this trade? def willing to negotiate but i fucked up big time

km not doin typos anymore (Will M.), Friday, 31 May 2019 19:41 (one month ago) link

why would you even accept such a one sides trade?! (as-in the one you thought you saw and not the actual trade)

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Friday, 31 May 2019 20:20 (one month ago) link

i thought someone was getting frustrated or something! tbh i'm also p sick right now so i don't think brain is working at full speed

km not doin typos anymore (Will M.), Friday, 31 May 2019 20:24 (one month ago) link

i will kaibosh once i'm at a desktop machine i can use my commish tools with.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Friday, 31 May 2019 20:31 (one month ago) link

I was in a league long ago where one of the managers would constantly throw these absurd trade offers out there trawling for someone to click the wrong button and sure enough someone would and then there would be a desperate campaign for folks to vote against said trade, haha (it wasn't me).

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Friday, 31 May 2019 22:25 (one month ago) link

the deed is done. and i don't think the trade was absurd!

that's maybe half the notifications i've gotten in this chain over the past two days

na (NA), Wednesday, 12 June 2019 20:35 (one month ago) link

i'm unbelievably back in the mix at the back of the pack -- it'll be a knife fight in a phone booth for 12th place.

omar little, Friday, 14 June 2019 16:55 (one month ago) link

ive clawed to 3rd/4th ish after autodraft brutalized & left me for dead

johnny crunch, Friday, 14 June 2019 20:05 (one month ago) link

Not 1 but 2 grand slams today, yes from my team whose only keeper is on the IL with a busted testicle.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Saturday, 15 June 2019 04:01 (one month ago) link

my team whose only keeper is on the IL with a busted testicle.

― Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Friday, June 14, 2019 9:01 PM (four days ago)

Said keeper had surgery to repair said busted testicle and may (?) begin light baseball activities shortly.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 16:47 (four weeks ago) link

now that i'm not in first place anymore i feel like i'm allowed to complain about how badly my pitching rotation is fucking me

na (NA), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 16:58 (four weeks ago) link

some of which was me gambling on streaming options, sure, but my young hotshot pitchers (paddack, strahm, and fried) fell apart and stasburg has had some shitty games recently. on the plus side, darvish has been gradually improving and clevinger just came off the IL, so hopefully that plus verlander will stem the bleeding

na (NA), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 17:12 (four weeks ago) link

Having been in last place all season despite having an across-the-board fine offense I feel that. My best pitcher has been the thoroughly solid #4 guy Mike Minor.

omar little, Tuesday, 18 June 2019 17:13 (four weeks ago) link

This is one hell of a trade that's brewing between The Guns of Buxton and Porno for Shapiros. Gutsy move, both of you!

NoTimeBeforeTime, Tuesday, 18 June 2019 21:38 (four weeks ago) link

Team name I thought of the other day: Acuña Matata

I am curious (george) (slight return) (WmC), Tuesday, 18 June 2019 21:47 (four weeks ago) link

My mistake last year was waiting too long to make a deal and push for first. Just hoping Springer comes back as hot as he was before the injury. And stays healthy obviously.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Wednesday, 19 June 2019 00:44 (four weeks ago) link

midseason awards:

NL MVP: Yellich (he ain't javy K)

NL CY: Ryu (porno for shapiros FA)
AL CY: Verlander (he ain't javy FA)
NL ROY: Alonso (he ain't javy FA)
AL ROY: Vogelbach (porno for shapiros FA)

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Monday, 24 June 2019 21:16 (three weeks ago) link

i believe alonso is a keeper for me, i drafted him

na (NA), Monday, 24 June 2019 21:24 (three weeks ago) link

or is keeper-eligible, i mean. but maybe you mean he was a free agent prior to the draft.

na (NA), Monday, 24 June 2019 21:25 (three weeks ago) link

you haven't kept him yet!

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Monday, 24 June 2019 21:41 (three weeks ago) link

sorry for the confusion, i was reading the K/FA as their eligibility, not as their current status. it doesn't matter.

na (NA), Monday, 24 June 2019 21:42 (three weeks ago) link

Now do gold gloves!

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 24 June 2019 21:44 (three weeks ago) link

just an FYI – i accidentally hit the "-" button next to Winkler's name instead of closing the window, and then return because i am dumb and was closing a bunch of windows at once and not paying attention. hence the drop and instant re-add in the transactions.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 25 June 2019 17:30 (three weeks ago) link

THE REMAINDER OF THIS SEASON WILL BE PLAYED UNDER PROTEST

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Tuesday, 25 June 2019 17:45 (three weeks ago) link

if it helps appease the league – everyone can have Winkler for two weeks.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 25 June 2019 18:22 (three weeks ago) link

usually my pitching is great and my hitting is mediocre and this year it's the other way around, i'm averaging 2 pts per pitching category.
