AFC Preview

Tennessee Little League team. Haha. When does the crying start?

I went to the Ulao Music Festivus on Saturday night. It was a neat little event for the locals and such. As usual at these sort of things, I did not fit in with the crowd. I don't have ugly glasses, a mustache or beard, ugly pants, tight shirts, or any ugly shoe and sock combos. As you may or may not be able to see, the fires were ya-huge. The bands weren't bad either. My pictures didn't turn out. I've been getting really self-conscious about using the flash on my camera. There's nothing to give any scale to this, but the log on top of this pile had at least a 4 foot diameter.



The Dodgers bought the Sawks on Friday. Thanks, Obama! O: FB. Bobby V should be fired after season, too. I can't believe I advocated for him to be the Breer's manager at one point.

Election Season! Crazy far right wing guy on twitter is demanding I explain why I'm favoriting his tweets, or else! He's also really paranoid and thinks people are out to get his family. This is too much damn fun.



Dammit! No on-field bawling from Tennessee. I guess you can't be too distressed when you know you never had a chance.

I missed the Lions game on Saturday. I need to see some game film.


Keith beat me by 20 last night. I'm really fucking terrible at football games. No Jon Budmayr didn't help either. And the terrible playbook I made. I suck. Tem would beat me by 50. NS.


Summit Talk. I think I'm skipping because I need as much money as I can. I have to get out of here no later than the beginning of November. Back to frozen pizzas and Ramen.

Seriously. Fuck me for forgetting Budmayr was hurt and using the wrong goddamn playbook. I hated every play I called.

I'm sure you're all tired of this song, but I just got put up on it in July. Not only is it catchy, but it speaks to me. efgmize is just somebody that I used to know. Sorry, but not sorry.

Great song. I've yet to get tired if it.

Mize said...

That's good to hear.

Aitch said...

I think this trade is actually TEO of O:FB. Sure Gonzo is a good player, but his power numbers were way down and he obviously hated the Boston market and the media pressure here. Beckett was a cancer and was emulating Clemens at the end of his time in Boston. He just didn't care anymore. I think he'll be re-energized by going back to the NL. He would not have performed in the 2 years he had left on his contract here. Crawford has been a bust. He was awful last year and injury plagued this year. He was another guy who never looked comfortable in this market and under the weight of that huge, overpriced contract. I think he will be more valuable on an NL team where his speed will lend itself to some smallball. All these guys will do better outside of Boston. The Sox rid themselves of 3 underperforming players and $260 million in contracts and give theselves the chance to rebuild a winning team.

Mize said...

"and he obviously hated the Boston market"


Who can hate that turkey & gravy with mashed topatoes????

" Who can hate that turkey & gravy with mashed topatoes????"

Well played. Though you should have put an asterisk on the intentional misspelling. Grammar Nazi Keith will be on your ass later.

Nice! Just got the invite to the big suicide pool I've been on the waiting list for for the last 5 years. I'ma win this bitch.

Blue said...

"It wasn't me. It was my kids."

little fuckers did it to me again over the weekend.

They come inside from having gone to the mall.

Cmblue says "hey can you pause your game for a minute and help me with the stuff we bought"...bgblue2 walks right over to the xbox and shuts it off.

i'm gonna have to move it to where they can't reach it.

Aitch said...

Or a good whack on the hand. (S)

tem said...

"Nice! Just got the invite to the big suicide pool I've been on the waiting list for for the last 5 years. I'ma win this bitch."

why is there a waiting list for a suicide pool?

i didn't know they had a limit on the # of entries. i'm in one with like 500 entries.

tem said...

"bgblue2 walks right over to the xbox and shuts it off."

you are allowed to punch her for this kind of behavior.

i think we're ready for week 13 meiz

i was super mad at EA sports.

i was up 14-0 on OK before I even took an offensive snap.

21-0 after 1 offensive snap.

then the servers were fucked up when i was done.

Blue said...

"you are allowed to punch her for this kind of behavior."

i've already lost it twice about this...now i'm just reserved to the fact that it happens

Good afc preview. I think Houston is gonna win the south, but they're going to give their playoff spot to Kansas City

Keef said...

Grammar Nazi Keith will be on your ass later.



You're as big of a nazi and you know it

Blue said...

cmblue looks at me like i've lost my mind when i get mad about it.

so fuck it, it's my fault for not waiting until they're in bed

A German sports official died Monday a day after being struck in the throat by a javelin.
The 74-year-old man was officiating at a youth meet in the western city of Duesseldorf when the incident happened late Sunday, police spokesman Andre Hartwig said



Goodness

Aitch said...

How do you not see a javelin coming?

Keef said...

So the Dodgers are going to be the new Yankees, huh. Time to get O:FLA started

Keef said...

How do you not see a javelin coming?

bilok is a major hipster. I rag him about his tight pants all the time

El Padrino said...

so boston put all those guys on waivers im assuming

El Padrino said...

Magic Aids does it again

set your autodraft list

El Padrino said...

VY cut

saw that coming they traded for Tavaris

Keef said...

so boston put all those guys on waivers im assuming


can't make a trade without it

El Padrino said...

set your autodraft list

no

suffer

i wont pay that league any mind

Keef said...

I'm debating whether or not to keep the Giants QB in the keeper league

El Padrino said...

baseball trade deadline is dumb

Blue said...

"baseball trade deadline is dumb"

they've talked about pushing it back to the end of august now because so many teams are still in the wildcard race in July

Keef said...

I'm surprised the prospects that LA dealt cleared waivers. Unless they put them on waivers and Boston claimed them

Keef said...

Irregardless, congrats Tyler, your team is the new Boston

Blue said...

i don't think a prospect has to clear waivers.


like a guy on a minor league contract...no waiver process for them

El Padrino said...

no waivers for minor guys NOT on the 40 man roster

El Padrino said...

espn wont let me import my rankings from a spreadsheet i made

El Padrino said...

this akamuaruauaurauauauaua injury is no good for business

no good

El Padrino said...

fucking cowboys

they sign carr and think they can stop the pass now

Blue said...

does he rush the passer?


then they'll be fine

El Padrino said...

best man from sat night wedding was cowboys fan

started talking shit, had some texas relatives cheering, other side of room was booing

sort of funny

El Padrino said...

The Dez Bryant Rules >>>>>> Joba Rules

Keef said...

no waivers for minor guys NOT on the 40 man roster



The one dude, Rubby whatever, just pitched for LA and got sent down to AA. That's who I was talking about. Wouldn't he be on the 40 man roster since he just pitched for LA

El Padrino said...

i dont know who do i look like bud selig

Keef said...

kind of

Keef said...

You have the same jowls

El Padrino said...

Rubby is an awful name

Blue said...

but it's a wonderful thing

Keef said...

rubby's racin'

tem said...

"just pitched for LA and got sent down to AA"

if he got sent down i would assume he is not on the roster anymore.

Keef said...

if he got sent down i would assume he is not on the roster anymore.



Not 25 man roster. But maybe 40 man roster

Blue said...

he has to be on the 40 man or teams could just pluck him out of AA

Blue said...

maybe not though


i think there are some rules around 40 man rosters

tem said...

must be

tem said...

it sounds like if a player is young enough you can take him off the 25 or 40 man roster pretty easily.

El Padrino said...

options

if he is out of options, no matter the roster position they dont have to clear waivers

Mize said...

"man hipsters are everywhere huh"

Seriously. Fuck those people. Looking at me all sideways like I'm the weirdo in my tshirt, jorts, and Js.

Mize said...

If you are out of options, you just get DFA'd, no?

Aitch said...

" If you are out of options, you just get DFA'd, no?"

Yea. As usual EP is talking out of his rectum.

Mize said...

Suiteness. I get Monday off.

Mize said...

I think the waiver trade kind of relies on you either having options or being on the 40 man.

Aitch said...

The Sox have a bad record. It isn't tough to figure out. Other teams probably put in claims but the Sox had the worst record. Guys not on the 40 man roster don't need to clear waivers.

Mize said...

How waiver trades work

Keef said...

Fucking Peter Aitch Gammons here

Keef said...

I know how waiver trades work. My question was whether or not Rubby was on the 40 man roster or not since he got sent down right before the trade

tem said...

don't teams waive like everyone too? like there will be hundreds and hundreds of guys waived when August hits?

Keef said...

We should see if LP clears waivers.

tem said...

he'd get picked up by the Frenchies.

Keef said...

That's fine. We can trade him for some escargot

El Padrino said...

so i was right

Aitch said...

" Fucking Peter Aitch Gammons here"

My comments were more directed at EP. Don't get all twisted, Sensitive Sally.

El Padrino said...

"As usual EP is talking out of his rectum."

Keef said...

hilarity

Aitch said...

"If he is out of options, no matter the roster position they dont have to clear waivers"

" so i was right"

Nope. Options have nothing to do with these trades. If a player is out of options he has to clear waivers before you send him down. Also if you want to remove a player from your 40 man roster he must clear waivers. Options have nothing to do with waiver trades though.

Aitch said...

" I know how waiver trades work. My question was whether or not Rubby was on the 40 man roster or not since he got sent down right before the trade"

Most likely.

Keef said...

most likely was or most likely was not

Mize said...

Goddammit. I didn't know EP was one of our dock workers. Just got a complaint that somebody was slurring one of the drivers that are here.

Keef said...

Is he a special case?

"I know how waiver trades work."


Well la-di-da

El Padrino said...

i'm dogging this guy on the Y! fantasy board right now for one of my leagues

El Padrino said...

"Just got a complaint that somebody was slurring one of the drivers that are here."


people get offended so easily

shit is funny role* with it

Blue said...

fucking slurrers

Mize said...

I'm sure the latino folks think it's really hilarious to be called wetbacks & spics because the gringos don't think they can speak English.

El Padrino said...

hahhahahahahahhahahaa

it is!

Blue said...

spics is just short for hispanics

what's wrong with wetback..sometimes when I drive without AC, i get a wetback

Keef said...

You don't really need to know English to know what those words mean

El Padrino said...

wetback refers to mexicans only
when they crossed over into texas at a certain point they'd have to wade in a river (Rio Grande?) and end up getting their backs wet

El Padrino said...

i think i want to write a slur book

haha, you writing a book would be funny.

El Padrino said...

"In possibly the most un-American story we’ve come across today, the mother of a Little Leaguer was fired from her job as an office manager for a CPA when she chose to take off from work and cheer on her son’s team in the West Regional."

nice going blue, fucking asshole

"You don't really need to know English to know what those words mean"


Very true

Shouldn't have used up all her vacation time then. Tough shit.

Keef said...

How is that un-American?

El Padrino said...

baseball man

Americana

El Padrino said...

Arian Foster or Ray Rice?

i hate the #1 pick

Keef said...

It wasn't even for the LLWS

Keef said...

Foster. All day

Blue said...

that company does not have a good work/life balance

Blue said...

if you have the first pick, why aren't you taking A-rodg?

Mize said...

Tom Brady will score the most points this year. Take him.

tem said...

"Shouldn't have used up all her vacation time then. Tough shit"

she had vacation time available.

the big boss was going to be on vacation at the same time and didn't want both her and him to be gone at the same time.

so big boss told her she couldn't go or she'd be fired.

Keef said...

Were you there?

Blue said...

tem is a CPA

Blue said...

"Tom Brady will score the most points this year. Take him."

that is the goal right...most points?

tem said...

"Were you there?"

no, i read the whole article and not just a part of it.

El Padrino said...

"Tom Brady will score the most points this year. Take him."

if you want a balanced team you go with Foster/Rice

Blue said...

cmtem made him get rid of the reader

tem said...

"As reported by the Santa Rose Press-Democrat, Billie Ann Tomei, the mother of Petaluma (Calif.) National Little League star Cole Tomei and husband of the team's coach, Trevor, was fired for taking her vacation time to cheer on her family during the team's appearance in the San Bernadino region. Billie Ann had been serving as an office manager for a CPA, and with her boss out of town he refused to let her leave the office even though she had accrued enough vacation time to take the trip."

tem said...

actually big boss was just out of town. he may or may not have been on vacation.

tem said...

she must be rich though.

"Tomei's mother made the trip to Pennsylvania from California to cheer on Cole, but was to head home on the 19th so she could return home. Billie Ann flew with her so that she wouldn't have to fly alone"

only rich people fly round trip just so that someone won't have to fly alone.

Keef said...

if you want a balanced team you go with Foster/Rice



You probably can't get both

tem said...

"With just hours before Cole and the Petaluma squad played again, she did the only thing she could imagine: She jumped in a taxi and took it all the way to Williamsport. The trip cost her $400.

"I gave the taxi driver $400 and told him to take me as far as he could take me," Tomei said. "It was all the money I had. Fortunately, he was really kind and brought me all the way. I owe him $150."

i wonder if Aitch ever rocked a $550 taxi trip.

El Padrino said...

only starting one qb
two RB
three WR
te
flex (rb/wr only)

if two qb league i'd probably consider it

tem said...

"You probably can't get both"

if the Rice is Sidney Rice you can.

or Jerry.

El Padrino said...

You probably can't get both


/

Keef said...

And how would drafting a RB first instead of a QB give you a more balanced team?

El Padrino said...

shittier backs to pick from when i go again

tem said...

RBs are heavier?

Keef said...

And shittier QBs. RBs are a dime a dozen

El Padrino said...

the value is irreplaceable once you pass on a back like foster/rice

Keef said...

the value is irreplaceable once you pass on a back like foster/rice


So the value of a 3rd round or later qb is equivalent to the points that Brady or Rodgers will get you?

Aitch said...

" Arian Foster or Ray Rice?"

Foster has gone vegan if that helps your decision at all.

Keef said...

Lemme tell you about being irreplaceable


/mize

El Padrino said...

"And shittier QBs. RBs are a dime a dozen"

rb's quantity but not quality

there are 32 qb's and about 20 or so are draftable

would rather have strong wr/rb stable with a very good qb than one exceptional qb and mediocre rb/wr

Keef said...

Draft Brady/Rodgers and then you can get MJD & Forte

El Padrino said...

not my style drafting qb early
feel like i can get a rivers/cutler/eli/romo

they provide value at a later spot

El Padrino said...

"Draft Brady/Rodgers and then you can get MJD & Forte"

well if i know that going in yeah sounds good but that aint happening, 1st pick then WAIT - most a1 backs like forte will be ghost

who is mjd playing for this year?

Keef said...

good luck with your 9th place ribbon

Keef said...

10 or 12 team league?

El Padrino said...

Brady

then im looking atryan matthews or murray or charles sprholes as my #1 back

no thanks

El Padrino said...

12 team

El Padrino said...

what ranking or drugs you on that has forte lasting 20 + picks?

El Padrino said...

pshycho

Keef said...

i don't know who charles sproles is

El Padrino said...

other league i have #10

thinking Fitzy even though the qb situation is not good he still catches 80 balls

#10 is a spot i'd consider a qb

El Padrino said...

"i don't know who charles sproles is"

jamaal charles or sphroles

meet me half way bro im mad busy yo

Blue said...

look.

the point is to score the most points..

when I evaluate a guy, it's whether or not he's gonna score more points than a person with a similar draft grade.


EP is drafting based on "NEED" like the shitty NFL teams do, instead of "best player available"

Keef said...

draft jonathan stewart

/tem

Blue said...

kiper would eat you alive

El Padrino said...

best player availble in most PPR rankings is not tom brady or aaron rodgers

unless brady can catch his own passes he isnt the player that will "score the most points"

Keef said...

LP overvalues RBs. This ain't 2004, mayne. It's a passing league now

Keef said...

unless brady can catch his own passes he isnt the player that will "score the most points"



Stop it. QBs always score the most points, especially when you get 6 pts for passing TDs

Keef said...

other league i have #10

thinking Fitzy



stop. Just stop it. I had a draft on Saturday and he went in the 3rd round

Keef said...

If you're talking about top players at a position compared to the rest of the field, then you would have to take either Gronk or Graham

Keef said...

80 catches and 7 TDs does not = 1st round pick

El Padrino said...

I had a draft on Saturday and he went in the 3rd round

yikes

El Padrino said...

your basically saying

one brady plus b+ RB = my A1 RB and 4th round qb

El Padrino said...

would go WR then if I went brady/Rodgers

El Padrino said...

arodge throwing more than 6 picks this year

El Padrino said...

still think a team is unbalanced

i like consistent scoring from all guys that start

not brady 43
daniel fucking thomas 7
ben tate 11
and so on

would rather see
rivers 28
arian 24
bradshaw 21
and so on

El Padrino said...

"so i took the top 25 guys right"

added eli with foster got 744

added brady with BEAST got 759

*foster missed a few games last year*

so there is no right or wrong it's pretty similar

El Padrino said...

if foster plays 16 ...... ben tate had 900 yards his backup

that o line is sick

El Padrino said...

now here is interesting if you take brady then a WR that could be around on the way way way back pick you could have me...

then im really hurting at rb though

El Padrino said...

also, obviously, i love rb's that catch the football

El Padrino said...

and i think rice OVER foster is the move it i go rb

rice scores more often touches the ball more in general

Keef said...

not brady 43
daniel fucking thomas 7
ben tate 11
and so on

would rather see
rivers 28
arian 24
bradshaw 21
and so on




Why couldn't you get Bradshaw if you had Brady? And you have other guys in the 3rd round or later (MJD/Charles/McFadden/Bush/BEAST/etc who will get you consistent high teens+ pts each week

Keef said...

and i think rice OVER foster is the move it i go rb




So why are you even asking us?

El Padrino said...

to illicit opinions

duh

El Padrino said...

"Why couldn't you get Bradshaw if you had Brady? And you have other guys in the 3rd round or later (MJD/Charles/McFadden/Bush/BEAST/etc who will get you consistent high teens+ pts each week"

if i take brady im taking a wr on the way way way back pick

Blue said...

why would you waste a pick on a RB who is going to split time, and has a much higher propensity to getting hurt?


i'll take the guy who gets hit 5 times a game over the guy who gets hit 35 times a game, anyday

Blue said...

just eat some caviar

tem said...

"stop. Just stop it. I had a draft on Saturday and he went in the 3rd round"

he (Fitzy) went 10th in our draft, but it has 1 keeper per team.
