2007 Fantasy Baseball Talk

Every year my twin brother and I have a fantasy baseball league with just the two of us. It’s really weird, every year we alternate who wins.

1993 matt
2000 erik
2001 matt (I drop Bonds right before he goes on his monster 72 homer tear. whoops.)
2002 erik
2003 matt (I got married two months after our draft. I was distracted.)
2004 erik
2005 matt (I was leaving for London the day we had our draft. Another major distraction.)
2006 erik
2007 WHO WILL WIN? (I already have my excuse to lose this year. My wife is having a baby. He/she is due June 2nd)

This is the place where we will have our talk about the league. Feel free to listen in, or maybe even drop a comment.

So let me get this straight. You have an excuse for every year that you lost. That’s uh, really interesting. It’s too bad that this year your excuse for losing will be that Sammy Sosa hit 50 homeruns. SLAMMIN SAMMY SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSA!

Be careful what you say Moose. Piazza could very well have a return to form in Oakland. His numbers were adversely impacted by having to play in Petco last year. That park is a power hitters nightmare.

However, if you look at his road numbers from last year and extrapolate them out over a full season (because Oakland is much friendlier to hitters), Piazza could have a big season.

Adam Dunn would have been a nice opening day roster addition.

I dropped Sosa. You can have him now. I know you’ve been waiting.

So Adam Dunn is no longer listed as a 1B, just a a OF. I’ll be curious to see how long you keep Dunn on your team. He’s just such a weird player hitting JUST homeruns. Nothing else.

I have an interesting infield today. Robinson Cano, Akinori Iwamura, and Khalil Greene.

I say we all go to Milwaukee and watch the Cleveland Indians play some West Coast teams… the Mariners, the Angels, etc…

It’s not every day you can watch teams play regular season home games in ballparks that are not their home fields.

know I know that I picked up Piazza again, but he’s not showing up in my lineup today. Have you had problems with this?

I’d love to see Akinori Iwamura hit .458 for the rest of the season!

Ordinarily I would love to check out Miller Park and watch the Indians play the Angels… but I don’t think it’s going to work this week. First of all, the snow/road conditions would make it difficult and time consuming to get there. Second, I would have to arrange to leave work early to make it there in time for the game and I wouldn’t be able to give much notice. Third, we have been busy getting everything ready for Addison’s birthday party this weekend, and I don’t think the wife would be too happy about me taking off to Milwaukee… Read more »

Whoa look at your outfield that is starting today: David DeJes

And now look at Akinori Iwamura!

If you want Akinori Iwamura, here’s your chance. I just dropped him for punkface Chipper Jones. Akinori. Nice hitter for a hitting streak, but not for our league. Just look at his game log. He gets one hit every game. That’s it. It’s as if he’s done for the day when he gets his one hit. I need more production out of third base. His hits are mostly singles too. Akinori, I miss you, but have fun with Tampa Bay.

albert pujols is going to start a tear. He hit two homeruns yesterday. Albie (as one of my female coworkers likes to call him) hits enough for four players.

Man, I only got four points last night. That must be the lowest total ever for having a near-full lineup (I had 6 players starting).

Oh crap. I went to reply to your comment, and instead I clicked on the delete link. OOPS!

Here’s your original comment, “You can not always rely on Darth Pujols… at least in April. Delmon Young is still going strong and Akinori is nowhere to be found. interesting.”

And my reply was gonna be:
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaakinooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

NEWS FLASH
I picked up Sammy Sosa. Your lead is not safe.

Here’s a tip to help you out. I normally don’t set my lineup until the day of the game. That way I get the hottest players playing. I shared a tip, do you have one to share?

Mashers smash out 64 points! Is that a season high for one team?

Thanks to Sosa’s two homeruns last night. If Sosa and Arod were elements in Rock Paper Scissors. Sosa would be Rock and Arod would be scissors. UTTER DESTRUCTION. (And Geoff Jenkins would be paper.)
