Bullpen, schmulpen

The Mets bullpen is bad, but you can't blame it all on them. 7 stranded runners in the 7th-9th? Two doubles and a triple to lead off those innings? And you can't get them in? Come on now, that's turrible.

I'm not sure why, but CC seems willing to make his arm explode for the Brewers. He should shut it down and cash in. Whoever signs him to the humongous deal that is certain to come should be worried. That dude is gonna get pa-id.

Most Likely to Choke: I'm 2-1 so far, I'm assuming due to pure luck. This week I will very shakily pick Maryland to win over #20 Clemson. Not any specific reason, but Maryland has won 2 of it's last 3 at Clemson. Plus, the terrapins are getting almost 200 yards a game on the ground. That generally bodes well.

I know Tyler mentioned this yesterday, but it just feels good that the Yankees aren't in the postseason. I spit on yankee stadium.

Jeff Fisher says VY will return from injury as the backup. Bad move for me as a Colts fan. Collins is a better QB. Yeah, Young is threatening when a play breaks down, but I would never count on him to complete a pass.

Yahoo is awful. Nice job performing site matienence in the middle of the playoff's last week.

The only good thing happening in Shea Stadium


This is why you wear a cup, Meiz.

Bam!

Beth said...

Hey look, Emeril's here!

Tyler said...

Or not.

Tyler said...

Todd Jones retired. He was kind of bitter in his press conference. I'm thinking about dropping him in the FMLB league.

Tyler said...

todd jones retired?

HDH email of the morning:


"Do you think the attorneys are given everyone the checklist?"

blue said...

skrew the attornies


TWBS

blue said...

guarantee, beth has the checklist from the lawyers

tem said...

beth gives the lawyers a checklist.

tem said...

and when she is done a survey.

tem said...

and one way or another they give her a tip.

tem said...

then her assistant sends in the next lawyer.

blue said...

checklists are essential in her line of business

blue said...

so the mess are (potentially) going to get rained out today, friday and saturday, meaning (alledgedly) double header sunday, double header monday...and then maybe even a play in game on tuesday....awesome

tem said...

that'll mess with the mlb fantasy playoffs.

Beth said...

Actually, I don't have the checklist, I'm ON the checklist.

blue said...

"that'll mess with the mlb fantasy playoffs."

those don't matter anymore, my team effectively died last night

tem said...

well theoretically you will get 2nd place money.

tem said...

don't lie beth. you are on the checklist for lawyers, but you have your own too.


take off pants
sit at desk
wait for beth
put money in jar on your way out.


every lawyer gets one of those when they schedule a visit to beth's "office."

blue said...

it's laminated

blue said...

well theoretically, if freak wins, you should theoretically send his winnings in pennies...except that would cost a lot, maybe you can get meiz to pay for UPS shipping.

Jugdish said...

elp's morning checklist:


- get to work
- give gollum dirty look, try to incite argument
- check mess score
- cry for 3-5 minutes
- log onto blogger

blue said...

CNN says: people out west question the bailout.

CNN talks to blue

tem said...

theoretically i might send his winnings in change. not all pennies, there were quarters and stuff in the box too.

blue said...

you should send it in a way that forces him to go to the post office to pick it up...in theory

Jugdish said...

bailout = bad idea

Beth said...

"take off pants
sit at desk
wait for beth
put money in jar on your way out"

Tem, wow, I'm stunned at that checklist. You are so way off you have no idea, and I'm insulted you think so little of me that you think I might have a checklist like that.

I mean come on, everyone knows you ALWAYS get the money up front...

blue said...

Today is "one hit wonder day" (ns)...also known as "Derrek Lee day"...loser.

Beth said...

And elp's morning checklist totally cracks me up.

blue said...

- get to work
- give gollum dirty look, try to incite argument
- check mess score
- cry for 3-5 minutes
*-ensure savings account has less than $100K
- log onto blogger

Jugdish said...

I forgot a line about updating his food snob blog too, and maybe one about eating some bacon.

tem said...

the money in the jar was tip money.

i assumed the lawyers had to pay just to get the checklist.

tem said...

"bailout = bad idea"

the government hasn't handled any situation well in the last 15-20 years. why start now??


they are like the mets in september. you know what's going to happen, so why are you bitching/talking/thinking about it??

tem said...

as a nation we should be spending our time figuring out how to get megan fox to dude some nude modeling.

tem said...

"dude some" is ridiculous HDH.

blue said...

i'm all for nekkid megan fox...it would help boost the economy for sure

Beth said...

"the money in the jar was tip money.

i assumed the lawyers had to pay just to get the checklist."

Hmmmm, interesting business model, I may have to think about that one...

blue said...

yes, tip jar...like a barista

blue said...

and fuck tipping baristas

blue said...

and i don't tip the guy at 7-11 either, even though they have that little tip tray by the register.

blue said...

wow, you kept the slurpee machine clean, here's a quarter...i don't think so

El Padrino said...

"elp's morning checklist:


- get to work

add in emergency meeting to throw off my morning and were talking a full scale homicide alert

that game was a kick in the nuts

tem said...

"barista"

is this the name for the person at the coffee shop?

El Padrino said...

i dont think they'll have the where with all to make the playoffs now, the loss was too demoralizing

tem said...

i've never seen a tip jar at a convienience store.

El Padrino said...

zambrano is a assclown

El Padrino said...

hoe could anyone like that guy, other than cub fans

tem said...

by the by someone here got let go today.

the secretary has been crying all morning. she misses him.

blue said...

"i've never seen a tip jar at a convienience store"

it says, take a penny/leave a penny...but it's really a tipjar

blue said...

sometimes if there is silver change in there, i take it, even if i don't need it.

Jugdish said...

Put some batting cage tokens in there...they like that.

tem said...

i've never seen silver in the take a penny thing.

i've seen about 50 pennies in one though and thought about taking them.

Jugdish said...

i've never seen silver in the take a penny thing.


That's because blue took it.

tem said...

blue is a taker.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"i've never seen silver in the take a penny thing."


People leave quarters in our penny things.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

BTW, I think I've been shitting bile for the past few days. This past half hour is the longest stretch I've gone without being on the toilet. Don't be alarmed when I die tomorrow.

Jugdish said...

dude!

Might want to take advantage of some healthcare, free or not.

El Padrino said...

rip deke, we'll miss you

tem said...

someone's gonna have to prep a monday post.

make it a eulogy.

blue said...

i'm on it

Jugdish said...

Title it: "I'm not an angry person at all."

blue said...

just forward the ask meiz questions to me

blue said...

"People leave quarters in our penny things."

EP probably leaves dolla bills yo

blue said...

he can't be bothered with one dollar bills

blue said...

unless he's going to 'make it rain'

Jugdish said...

I think keef was involved somehow

El Padrino said...

bottom line

it's a four game season, i would have signed up for this at the beginning of the year

Lets GO Mets!

*my balls still hurt*

El Padrino said...

at least we arent playing the last game at shea out of the playoffs like some team we wont mention


Die Yogi

Jugdish said...

I think tem was involved somehow

Jugdish said...

I think elp was involved somehow...and it was related to the Mets

tem said...

hahaha, dude farted on a cop and got an assault on an officer charge.

JFreak said...

how the hell is farting considered battery?

Jugdish said...

I think Beth was involved somehow

blue said...

sheesh, cmblue could file ass-ault charges

blue said...

against me

Jugdish said...

I know Rev was involved

El Padrino said...

jug you made me laugh

thanks

tem said...

"how the hell is farting considered battery?"

well it was in WV and the dude was mexican or something.

Jugdish said...

yo!

tem said...

I assume the "I think Beth was involved somehow" link is NSFW.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I lobbied the guys in my shitty league & got that foul ass trade vetoed.

El Padrino said...

freak i've asked you acouple of times now, you won the bet

can i pay now

JFreak said...

"freak i've asked you acouple of times now, you won the bet

can i pay now"

No, I want to see if the Mets make the playoffs before I come up with a name.

Beth said...

I think Jug was involved somehow - always complaining about something...

JFreak said...

"I assume the "I think Beth was involved somehow" link is NSFW."

You assume wrong.

blue said...

blue said...

are you saying you'd rather not look at tits because you've seen them before?

blue said...

i am aghast

El Padrino said...

no fool

i'm blocked
Nazi'd

Jugdish said...

I hope elp was not listening to the first 15 minutes of Rome. If so, there is a good chance he is naked on the top of his office building right now.

Jugdish said...

Beth you think I always complain?

ya cut me deep!

El Padrino said...

no radio at work
let me guess he's blasting the mets

isiah thomas said...

Deke is too meizy to die.

isiah thomas said...

is Jim Freaking Rome's show available on itizzle?

Jugdish said...

embarassing

Jugdish said...

Yeah...the Mets were the first thing he talked about.

tem said...

"You assume wrong."

it was a joke.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'm beginning to think I have some kind of flu, instead of dying.

tem said...

we all are dying.

isiah thomas said...

What's the Aitch watch up to?

a week?

Jugdish said...

Did someone have a name change bet with H or something? Maybe change him to Q.

isiah thomas said...

deke's trying to push himself down a round or two in the Death Pool.

nice try Pecos.

spaceman spiff said...

re: ellis

what a fucking moron. players do shit ,even if its in their contract they cant, because they know the team will still pay them, even fucking vlad rad got paid after lying. not sure, but i think jay williams still got millions for ending his career in a motorcycle accident, he didnt have a chance to lie about it though

tem said...

if i had gotten hurt on a moped i'd have lied about it too.

blue said...

he's going with the reverse jinx

tem said...

did keith die?

tem said...

i think i am nazied on my favorite time killing game.

Jugdish said...

Did they lock you out of the office bathroom?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Yep. Flu-ish. Just puked.

tem said...

no, desk top tower defense doesn't load up anyore.

Jugdish said...

Was Ellis riding on the back of that moped like White Goodman?

spaceman spiff said...

try another site that hosts the game

El Padrino said...

why did they have to bitch him in the article, talking bout "slow speed accident"

that was funny

spaceman spiff said...

if youre using handdrawngames site, it is down, youre not nazi'd

tem said...

"if youre using handdrawngames site, it is down, youre not nazi'd"

i was using that site.

i didn't know it was hosted elsewhere.

blue said...

talking bout "slow speed accident"


mopeds don't go all that fast anyway

Beth said...

"Beth you think I always complain?

ya cut me deep!"

Don't worry Jug, I just said that to try & relate it to the article. You're no Meiz.

Jugdish said...

Whew!

Speaking of Meiz...I am off to the shitter. I will take the Obama plan with me for reading and wiping purposes.

whitlock:'jeff george for lions GM!!!"

spaceman spiff said...

bengals at home over browns for my pick'em, any objections?

blue said...

in one breath whitlock says he can't believe the Rams are starting Trent Green, but you know in the back of his mind he's thinking Jeff George should be starting there.

blue said...

both teams stink, they should tie

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Woah. My FNBA draft is already coming up. Oct 19.

tem said...

"handdrawngames site"

does this site have any other games besides desktop tower defense?

Jugdish said...

Do you think you'll be alive then?

tem said...

Trent will be concussed by the 3rd qtr and Bulger will be back in there.

isiah thomas said...

but i think jay williams still got millions for ending his career in a motorcycle accident,

MY LEGGGGG!

MY LEGGGGG!

MY LEGGGGG!

IN DE FACE! JAY!

isiah thomas said...

desktop tower defense


out-fucking-standing game

ns

tem said...

yeah deke, you better sell your team.

Jugdish said...

Leave it to tem in your will.

tem said...

"desktop tower defense"

love it. play it lots.

tem said...

"Leave it to tem in your will."

it will be tied up in his estate for a year while the lawyers go through all of deke's stuff.

he should sell it now.

tem said...

plus fmdeke would be all mad that i got it and sue me and she'd get an injunction against me that stopped me from making roster moves.

tem said...

the team would be put in control of a guardian of the court and he'd trade for marbury.

Jugdish said...

it will be tied up in his estate for a year while the lawyers go through all of deke's stuff.

he should sell it now.



good point.

Jugdish said...

bailout deal reached

El Padrino said...

tight games this week

JFreak said...

"desktop tower defense"

link it up.

El Padrino said...

"bengals at home over browns for my pick'em, any objections?"

no clue
you'd think so

tem said...

desktop tower

that's the handdrawn gmes site which is apparently down. i don't know any other hosts for it.

spaceman spiff said...

desktop defense game

on armor games site, dont know if its the exact same version tem was playing

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

addictinggames.com should have it.

tem said...

that is the same version. 1.5.

that version is "cleaner" looking though.

tem said...

that link is like the HD version.

spaceman spiff said...

just like matt forte, i had no clue cameron maybin was black

JFreak said...

Mark Reynolds is the first guy in MLB history to strikeout 200 times in a year.

isiah thomas said...

Mark Reynolds is the first guy in MLB history to strikeout 200 times in a year.

He's not done yet.

tem said...

i doubt he gets to 300.

Tyler said...

Dirty Snakes have Reynolds and Dunn.; pretty awesome. Dunn struckout 195 times in 2004 and 194 times in 2006. He's got 160 so far this year. 40 k's in 40 games with the snakes.

Tyler said...

That's a lot of striking out.

Tyler said...

1252 k's on the year. That's their team record.

El Padrino said...

marlins are 2nd no?

Tyler said...

That's a lot of backward K's on the CPK meter.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I wish I had DVR so I could pause American Gangster when I "shit" every 10-20 minutes.

tem said...

if he does he should yell "SPARTA"

Tyler said...

I couldn't find a list ranking them by team. Marlins have more than AZ. They have 1347 strikeouts. They had 1332 last year and 1249 the year before. Their hitting coach should get them to try drawing walks more often.

blue said...

200ks is some kind of record

Jugdish said...

I bet I could break that record.

Tyler said...

Here's the strikeout list

El Padrino said...

skins getting 11

Reed Doughtary is the reason why

blue said...

that's quite an accomplishment considering he didn't play in every game this season too.

El Padrino said...

seattle might suck but at least they put the ball in play

Tyler said...

Texas is in the Top 5 in almost every major batting category (most of them they're #1). Pitching, not so much, unless you count being #1 in Runs, Hits and Earned Runs.

Last in ERA, and BAA.

They should think about signing some pitchers.

isiah thomas said...

That's a lot of backward K's on the CPK meter.

It's the Circle K meter here in PHX.

isiah thomas said...

That's a lot of backward K's on the CPK meter.

It's the Circle K meter here in PHX.

Tyler said...

strikouts by players

Tyler said...

Ryan Howard and Jack Cust also have a shot at 200.

Tyler said...

A couple of golden sombreros and they'll both do it.

Tyler said...

Ha, from the bible:

The "Olympic Rings" or platinum sombrero applies to a player striking out five times in a game, while a horn (after Sam Horn of the Baltimore Orioles who accomplished the feat in an extra-inning game in 1991) or titanium sombrero is bestowed upon a player who strikes out six times in a single game.

Tyler said...

"It's the Circle K meter here in PHX."

Nice, I don't even know where the nearest Circle K is. They kind of disappeared in the southland in the early 90s.

Steve said...

this guy in my office is playing his radio. he's a huge Nickleback fan.


i wanna rip my ears off!!!!

blue said...

circle K got bought out by Shell

blue said...

maybe that was just in Idaho though, because according to wiki, they're still around

blue said...

"Circle K was acquired by Tosco Corporation, an independent petroleum refiner and marketer, in 1996, but kept its headquarters in Phoenix. Tosco was purchased in 2001 by Phillips Petroleum, which in 2002 merged with Conoco to form ConocoPhillips. In 2003 Circle K was purchased by Alimentation Couche-Tard (a large convenience store operator based in the Montreal area) for US$804 million.

In mid-2006, Alimentation Couche-Tard entered into a franchising agreement with ConocoPhillips to brand some of its company-owned stores as Circle K in the western portion of the US. ConocoPhillips remodeled the stores into the Circle K scheme but continued to operate them. The stores continued to have the new ConocoPhillips unified canopy design and ProClean gasolines."

blessed be

Tyler said...

Yeah, they're still around, I saw the legendary Circle K in Barstow last time we stopped there driving back from Vegas.

Tyler said...

It's legendary because everyone who breaks down in Barstow goes there to get food. There is always at least one car or truck with it's hood up in the parking lot.

blue said...

this article is actually pretty good

isiah thomas said...

Needles > Barstow

El Padrino said...

gollum attire

washed 1000 times faded maroon old navy polo

blue said...

reading the article it sounds like the guy gets hit really hard...the video makes the guy look like a pussy..c'mon

blue said...

i've spent the night in Needles before...it's an awesome place

Tyler said...

My parents have a place in Bullhead, across from Laughlin. It's like a block away from the rive. You have to go through Needles to get there. Terrible, terrible place. And yet, it's 10 times better than Barstow.

JFreak said...

There's a circle k/shell 2 blocks from my house.

blue said...

yeah, Needles is a much better place than Barstow

JFreak said...

what's up with the dude's shoulder pads?

they look all wonky.

blue said...

he's a wonky dork

blue said...

he has lineman's shoulder pads on...no way he could throw the ball effectively with those shitty pads
