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 (two months 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.

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

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

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

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 (two months 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 (two months 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 (two months 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 (two months 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 (two months 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.

midseason awards:

NL MVP: Yellich (he ain't javy K)
AL MVP: Trout (blast first petit 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 (two months ago) link

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

na (NA), Monday, 24 June 2019 21:24 (two months 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 (two months ago) link

you haven't kept him yet!

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

Now do gold gloves!

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 24 June 2019 21:44 (two months 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 (one month ago) link

THE REMAINDER OF THIS SEASON WILL BE PLAYED UNDER PROTEST

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Tuesday, 25 June 2019 17:45 (one month 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 (one month 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.

omar little, Thursday, 27 June 2019 00:47 (one month ago) link

dammit! tried to add Petit seconds after Bellinger EscapePlan did!

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 1 July 2019 21:03 (one month ago) link

you have to wake up preeeeetty early to beat me! (5:00pm would suffice)

I'm a board man. Board man gets paid (Will M.), Monday, 1 July 2019 21:06 (one month ago) link

my blunder was mowing the lawn first.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 1 July 2019 21:33 (one month ago) link

pretty satisfied with my blue jays pickups so far, bottom of 4
3/4, 1 2B, 2 HR

francisF, Friday, 5 July 2019 00:29 (one month ago) link

omg

francisF, Friday, 5 July 2019 00:31 (one month ago) link

4/5, 1 2B, 3 HR

francisF, Friday, 5 July 2019 00:32 (one month ago) link

i drafted that fucker in my other league (for $10) and carried his sub-mendoza ass for two months before dropping him. now this – he's gone in both leagues in seconds.
anyways, glad he's hitting and am a big fan of his.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Friday, 5 July 2019 18:47 (one month ago) link

might be time to drop Joey Votto :`(

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 16 July 2019 18:34 (one month ago) link

Since this league was turned into a keeper league, has there ever been a team with all 5 Keepers on the DL?

Asking for a friend.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 17 July 2019 05:17 (one month ago) link

I have inadvertently dismissed Eovaldi, who has been on NA. Looks like he may be becoming closer for the red sox. Will you guys be bros and let me have him after the waiver period? I'll have lost those days anyway, due to my negligence, though i don't know how it happened. cheers, love you

francisF, Saturday, 20 July 2019 16:32 (one month ago) link

better yet perhaps commish can place him back on my team? i've just done it

francisF, Saturday, 20 July 2019 16:35 (one month ago) link

hey - so i just got back from chicago where i had spotty access to the interwebs. what's up?

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 22 July 2019 14:20 (one month ago) link

can you drop someone so you have room on your roster? i'll de-drop eovaldi for you and maybe rename your team for lols.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 22 July 2019 14:28 (one month ago) link

Wait... so we can take mulligans now?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Monday, 22 July 2019 16:41 (one month ago) link

he asked literally right away and i'd done the same for myself when i hit the wrong fucking button earlier, so ya.
everyone gets one.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 22 July 2019 17:26 (one month ago) link

but he is going to have to clear space first.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Monday, 22 July 2019 17:27 (one month ago) link

good to know...

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Monday, 22 July 2019 17:29 (one month ago) link

Okay I dropped Cain, who played one game for me in an effort to maybe get a steal, where i'm dead last. Collected I CS
Thanks Thermo for the help, and yes feel free to change my name to the Mulligans if it makes Al feel better

francisF, Monday, 22 July 2019 21:40 (one month ago) link

Collected 1* CS that should say

francisF, Monday, 22 July 2019 21:40 (one month ago) link

Apparently renaming teams is where my powers end.

Oh well. I don’t think “Nathan Eovaldi #1 Fan Club” would have fit anyways.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 23 July 2019 00:07 (one month ago) link

Nate Fellators, hello.
anyway, cheers thanks

francisF, Tuesday, 23 July 2019 00:35 (one month ago) link

Too bad I couldn't get him in time for the game today 40.50 ERA

francisF, Tuesday, 23 July 2019 02:15 (one month ago) link

Since I'm on a roll and to appease commish, my new name is Eovaldi: The 4 Seams (cept no punctuation is allowed i guess :/ )

francisF, Tuesday, 23 July 2019 09:18 (one month ago) link

it took me longer than it shd have, but i get that reference

johnny crunch, Tuesday, 23 July 2019 15:09 (one month ago) link

like most our teams – i got no clue.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 23 July 2019 15:26 (one month ago) link

Severino coming back as a RP. so no use to me at all this year.

open to offers if anyone wants five years of control on the dude, who will be back as a SP next year.

Mad Piratical (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Thursday, 25 July 2019 16:33 (four weeks ago) link

I'm tempted by that ...

My hitters were a combined 1-26 last night but with a .342 OBP.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Saturday, 27 July 2019 08:24 (four weeks ago) link

I had 3 starters going, they went 1.77era 1.03whip 3k:bb 2w 2qs.
but one wasn't really a starter. rays had castillo opening for yarbrough, robbing me of a W and QS >:(

i managed to log a Zero in the standings for about the 250th time this year
