Speaking of Teixeira....

So it's top of the ninth, down by two, bases loaded... he hits a shot down the right field line that clearly lands on the foul line (a fair ball) only to have the ball called a foul.  He then goes ballistic - gets ejected, and the Rangers lose.

That hit had 3 RBI double written all over it.

But Laird ends up having to pinch hit for him...

******' umps...  >:(

This man, Christopher Harris, is a new "expert" face over at Yahoo Fantasy Baseball:



He is Satan.

This is the man responsible for injuring 15 of my players.

He also caused Mark Teixeira's slump.

Dressel, could you clarify the requirements for a win for pitching? I thought I knew all the basics but Kenny Rogers went out of the game after 4 and a third, leading 7-5, his team won 7-6, but he didn't get the W - Román Colón did.

Do you have to get through a certain number of innings to earn a W even if you leave with a lead that holds up?

A starting pitcher must pitch a minimum of 5 complete innings to be eligible for the win.


Kenny Rogers knew when to hold 'em, knew when to fold 'em, knew when to walk away, and knew when to run.

It's been said in baseball folk lore that all hot streaks begin with a broken bat:

Anything fly out of the middle of that bat? ;)

I was more than a bit surprised to see Teixeira on the bubble over at Yahoo tonight.  Uh, reputation count for much?  He's coming on and that's great news for Rob, but I don't think I'd be saying he's totally turned around.  Maybe in a couple of weeks.

I wouldn't say he's turned it around either.  He's doing a little better over the last week or two - but he's still got a ways to go before he's the player I was expecting when I drafted him... he may be too far behind to reach those types of numbers at this point anyway.  I'll be happy so long as he's better in the second half of the season.

Kenny Rogers knew when to hold 'em, knew when to fold 'em, knew when to walk away, and knew when to run.

Of course the problem here was that he had no idea when to run or hold em'.

He needed to hold em for another 2 outs so I could have had a chance at the fantasy W.

Well, Myers is inactive and he's got a court appearance August 4th.  All witnesses say he punched his wife in the face twice while dragging her through the streets of Boston by her hair.  The police found her bruised, bloody, and swollen on a curb.  It's not looking good for Myers.

Jered Weaver, however, in his 4 starts has a 1.70 ERA and .76 WHIP.  Just under a K/inning.  He's likely going to have freshman success like King Felix last year since nobody has seen him yet.

I'll go with Weaver.

This Myers thing is just another in the long, long, long list of injuries, accidents, and incidents that has befallen every one of my players who is not a closer, Felipe Lopez, or Nick Swisher.  I got leveled.

Alright - how many allstars are on your team?

I count 11 on mine, plus two guys who are finalists for the last-man whatchamacallit.

I don't know much about how many all stars are on my squad, but I do know that apparently hell froze over while I took a nap, because one of my starters is actually about to earn a W.

There's a major glitch in the stat-collecting software on our roster pages.  Yahoo is reporting that Josh Johnson recorded a win, and that doesn't happen on my team.

Don't worry, I've reported this problem to Yahoo and they're on it.
