Had to get a chuckle out of Funston's comment regarding Pujols on the big board today:

Having A-Rod's '06 season -- solid #'s but less than expected

Yeah, thanks for that.  Drafted #1 invokes the Elliott curse on said draftee.  This is still better than the Hawaiian Curse which seems to have almost claimed Aramis Ramirez though he isn't going DL at least, but they don't know when he'll play again ::)

Thank goodness for fantasy golf.

Why the **** are all of Kevin's pitchers on his bench when they weren't two days ago?  Oh...I see someone wants to try and at least take 3rd Place and needs to get ahead on Saves ::)

Geez, I'm just happy Kevin made some kind of move in the last month.

If this affects the outcome of 3rd place, there won't be any more leagues with both Dressel and Kevin in them at the same time.

Not here at least.

LOL.

Why is it whenever Kevin makes a move, it's about me!?

Man that was funny.  I actually burst out laughing when I read the 3 musketeers above thinking that was some kind of conspiracy to advance the fifth place team in the final 4 days.  Actually, that was to lock Kev's WHIP in to 1.27 just to make sure you didn't get a point Scott, since you were at 1.28.  Additionally, my relievers are in to try to get the ERA down past 3.92, under Scott's of 3.90.  You see, in combo, that'd be a 2 point blow to Scott, who is in first.

I could give a **** about finishing in 3rd place you idiots. (Bug excluded)  3rd, 4th, 5th, it doesn't matter.  Although I can see, coincidentally, in trying to deal a 2 point blow to Scott, I might pick one up in saves.  But that was not the motive, rather an unintended consequence (that Scott just brought to my attention I might add).

But that was really funny at least.  It's the conspiracy to alter the 3rd to 5th place portion of the standings!!   :D

Furthermore guys, 2 owners having a discussion on how to deal a blow to the first place team is completely legal and we operated totally within the rules of the league.  If more of you did it sooner, we wouldn't be looking at Pearson's first championship after, I dunno, 20 someodd tries.

Well that's a very questionable move, and a gray area.

So, say we're playing basketball, and a player decides to freeze his FT% at a specific level, and by doing so the first or second place team floats above that level and loses a point, is that "collusion"?

And I have a problem with the first place team setting another player's roster how the first place team wants it, freezing it, and locking the team.  That's very questionable as well. 

Anyhow, congrats on the win.

Kevin has barely decided to do anything all year long and now he decides to freeze his WHIP to stop Scott, who's running away with the damn thing from getting another point?

Right.


Fact is that there is a documented history of questionable interactions between your teams and his.  I'd like to go through an entire season of something other than Hockey without any of these little issues coming up, even if every last one of them is a coincidence and every last lopsided trade attempt is fair to you.

I never said it was his suggestion.

So just so we're all on the same page here, this is you insinuating that you suggested to Kevin, who's been all but absent from this league for around a month, that if he freeze his WHIP he can affect Scott's point total even though it is of no benefit whatsoever to Kevin's team?

Ha!

I also never said it wasn't.

And I'll leave it at that.

I think we were problem free in both football and basketball last season, actually.
