Spot Start

Jug got called into an emergency work meeting. The general was watching Independence Day and thinks we are under attack. He is devastated that Harry Connick Jr. didn't have the ability to thwart the invasion. He is skeptical that the nerdy dude will pull off his plan.

Miguel Cabrera won the triple crown. That is a terrible name for a horse. I don't get it at all. But good for him. Now we can stop listening to people bitch about no triple crown winners. Just drink your mint julep and shut the fuck up.

The space shuttle went here to see these guys last night. Just kidding. I don't link well and I don't know where the space shuttle went.

Bobby V is getting let go. Just do it now and get it over with. Then the Indians will hire Francona and Bobby V can get his TV job back. Works for everyone. The BoSox can hire LaRussa as their manager. I hear he was bored this summer.

Royce White wants to travel by bus as much as possible for Rocket games. I think the Mavericks would have made this happen no problem. The Rockets seem to be stumbling. Dude said he'd pay for his own bus. Let him ride the bus. He is the new Anne Frank or Rose Perez or Rosa Parks or whoever. LET HIM RIDE, LET HIM RIDE, LET HIM RIDE. That's what people say to Beth. Not sure why he isn't at training camp though. He had plenty of time to walk or drive there. He could have ridden a moped Dumb and Dumber style.

FYI - sequel to that is apparently a go again. Whatever.


Should I start Steven Jackson tonight or Devon Bess? Those are my choices. It is my flex position. The rest of my team is OK, but the BYE week is eating me up.

The Terminator was on the BS report??? GTFO

Well, work is calling me now. Well not on the phone. They are looking at me like I can't possibly be doing math because I am typing too fast. I don't type that fast, but this would be really fast for a spreadsheet. Like I am using all letters. It is obvious. I would never type this many words into one spreadsheet. Work PAPER!

great spot start temster

"If Greg Little didn't actively hate footballs and have a strong desire to never hold them in his hands, the Browns would've beaten the Ravens in the Thursday nighter."


that made me aitch; he's on my bench, but cracking the starting lineup this week due to Jennings injury, and Maclin going up against Pitt/7 yrds last week/bum hip

Mize said...

8 innings my ass. Spot starters never go 8 innings. 4.2 IP, 5K, 2R, 1BB, 1HR, 3Hits.

blue said...

knows baseball

Mize said...

Don't bench Maclin because of the matchup, bench him because of the health.

tem said...

either way i did my job

blue said...

what was your pitch count though?

El Padrino said...

never say never

Mize said...

"what was your pitch count though?"

Buntin' Ron Roenicke pulled tem to actually bring in a PH to bunt. Can't make this stuff up.

Yes, I realize this is impossible.

Okay

Mize said...

"don't care about my pitch count. it is the last day of the season and we didn't make the playoffs."


Runnin Ron thought he was saving your arm for the playoffs. He clearly has no idea what's going on.

It disappoints me a little that more people probably know about Machine Gun Kelly than know about Yelawolf.

It is a widely known fact that tem can't bunt

Saturday morning or early afternoon?

Mize said...

"It is a widely known fact that tem can't bunt"


Neither can Carlos Gomez, Corey Hart, Travis Ishikawa, Jon Jucroy, Martin Maldonado, or any of our starting pitchers.

Skill or lack thereof will not deter Buntin' Ron.

blue said...

saturday early afternoon might work.

I gotta ask the boss. I figure once i get the little one down for a nap, i'm good to play

blue said...

that's usually about 1 my time

Keef said...

word. That'll give me time to get up and get some shit done in the yard in the morning to make cmk happy

Mize said...

Outhouse Control and the Bug Man trip me out every day on the CB. Somehow it picks up these 2 dudes from California, and I have nary a fucking clue regarding what they're talking about.

tem said...

"It is a widely known fact that tem can't bunt"

eteo. i can totally bunt.

tem said...

i was a bunting machine in hike school.

i got skillz in the cage.

tem said...

i can not hit a free throw though. or a layup. it is sad.

tem said...

i'm probably 30% on free throws. probably 55% on layups.

Keef said...

That is sad

Keef said...

I suck at dribbling, but I could probably shoot 80+% FT

tem said...

i am above average at dribbling. basketball is not my game though.

i can't shoot well at all and it seems to be a key facet.

tem said...

"Bobby Valentine's brief yet tumultuous run as Red Sox manager is over. He was fired by the team after just one year"

i reported it first on the post.

"but i'm using it as a verb"

FYI - you aren't, but whatever.



Keef said...

Keef said...

"Preparedness towards the Global Markets Listed Derivatives PM NPA process has been completed"

It's a project update to senior management folk, it's written on a powerpoint deck

yeah they are. even cheap ones are spendy.

Mize said...

Sounds like needs more Dockers and a couple sport coats.

Mize said...

Suits are ridiculous.

Mize said...

"I should wear my Magers jersey in Vegas"


Undoubtedly

blue said...

tem should bring the gradkowski jersey

Mize said...

I'm going shirtless

Mize said...

Just kidding, I'm disgustingly fat.

Mize said...

I should jump on the temdiet for a few weeks

tem said...

"tem should bring the gradkowski jersey"

sure

Mize said...

I should buy a new tshirt.

blue said...

you should all buy the same shirt in vegas and wear it around together

Mize said...

What's the temdiet again? All salads for a month?

Or something like that

Mize said...

"you should all buy the same shirt in vegas and wear it around together"

3 wolves howling at the moon.

kod said...

"who won the debate?"


the suddenly moderate again Mitt Romney

good strategy though, Obama did not seem prepared for that and was clearly shook


who lost the debate?


the moderator; America

tem said...

temdiet is no carbs for 2 weeks.

tem said...

blaming the moderator is like blaming the refs for a football loss.

kod said...

"Don't bench Maclin because of the matchup, bench him because of the health."


it's a combination; if he was healthy against Pitt, I'd start him. If he was banged up against, say, Buffalo, I'd start him.

but taken together, I'll go with Braylon 2.0 this week

Keef said...

3 wolves howling at the moon.



So, Tyler is out. Got it

Mize said...

Peece

kod said...

"blaming the moderator is like blaming the refs for a football loss."


I never blamed him for anything. He was not responsible for Obama's poor performance



but he lost biiiig time, and if you don't know what I am talking about, then you didn't watch the debate

tem said...

of course i didn't watch the debate.

tem said...

hey, nobody answered my fantasy nfl question from the post. fuckers.

Shit for shat

Keef said...

AZ is ranked like 27th against RB in FFB, if that helps your decision

tem said...

27th worst or 27th best?

Keef said...

1st is best

tem said...

i see. i thought zona was good against the run. i sit corrected.

tem said...

wwl says zona is the 3rd best against RBs

Keef said...

The one I read was this morning on Y!, I think. So who knows

Keef said...

On the notes for Steven Jackson on Y!, it says "Arizona has given up the 27th most fantasy points to Running Backs this season".



So I can't read

tem said...

fucking yahoo! and wwl. they use the lp method of reporting. just say something. 50% chance it is right or will be right soon.

Keef said...

That was worded dumb. Why not just say the 6th fewest

tem said...

sounds like you read that right to me, but i guess not.

that is a shitty way to phrase it.

they should have said "Arizona's preparedness for RBs this season has been completed 5th best."

Mize said...

Damn. I could have had Jerome Simpson for $1. Spent $7 on him.

Keef said...

ezzactly

Keef said...

I don't have Jerome Simpson and I paid nothing for it. I feel like I won

tem said...

same

Mize said...

I was just picking up a WR for Jeremy Maclin insurance. EJ spent a combined $46 on Nate Washington and Leonard Hankerson.

tem said...

EJ is dumb

blue said...

i have this hankerson fellow..

autodraft picked him for me.

Keef said...

I drafted Washington & Hankerson. I dropped Hankerson before week 1

El Padrino said...

tell ej there is a spot available next year in my $$$$$$ league if he's interested

Mize said...

"tell ej there is a spot available next year in my $$$$$$ league if he's interested"


He's a great salesman. He's totally fleeced 2 people in trades this year. Most people would be pissed those trades were accepted, but nobody voted them down. And fuck it, he's not in my division.

tem said...

he is going to pre-preparedness for your draft.

blue said...

ha

last night cmblue and I were talking about who in our neighborhood is a republican or a democrat.

there was only one sure fire republican, maybe two.

"BODE traded A.J. Green,
BODE traded Brandon Jacobs,
THC traded Ahmad Bradshaw,

and

"THC traded C.J. Spiller,
THC traded Mark Ingram,
HUEB traded Rashard Mendenhall,
HUEB traded Victor Cruz,"

Mize said...

EP would love his team name.

Typical Blackmon

Keef said...

That's funny

blue said...

why did THC have Ahmad Bradshaw, Ben Tate, CJ Spiller and Mark Ingram.

sounds like an awful draft strategy

tem said...

indeed

blue said...

mars blackmon?

tem said...

is he jamaican?

Keef said...

why did THC have Ahmad Bradshaw, Ben Tate, CJ Spiller and Mark Ingram.



So that he could trade them

Keef said...

der

tem said...

its like when madden first came out. you could draft all kickers in the first 10 rounds.

then trade 9 of the kickers straight up for the best position players.

Keef said...

I don't remember that

blue said...

still doesn't sound very effective

Mize said...

"why did THC have Ahmad Bradshaw, Ben Tate, CJ Spiller and Mark Ingram."

late pick, handcuff for trading, junk pickup, junk pickup.

blue said...

"then trade 9 of the kickers straight up for the best position players"

this is how tem wins national championships

El Padrino said...

piece until Monday

Keef said...

LP is preparedness for the weekend early

Fuck yes to this movie.

Ponder my Peterson

Keef said...

Dude in my $ league named his team Show Me Your TDs

Mize said...

You mean like this? That's an old one.


SHOW ME YOUR TD'S (JJW)

Yeah, I'm totally getting a couple new shirts for Summit III

Mize said...

So what's Tyler's deal? Is he officially out?

Mize said...

And I mean out on going to Vegas, not out of the closet.

Keef said...

He might of* died

Mize said...

So what is our official hotel room plan?

Mize said...

I don't even know how many nights Tem booked a room for

kod said...

"Kod should read my blog today."

I did. I agree with a few things (I'm pro-choice and a staunch supporter of keeping religion and government separate), but will only touch on a couple things to save everyone from a 10 scroller.


If you're concerned about the defecit, you may want to rethink your position on a flat tax.

The wealthy paying more is not against the American spirit, a regressive tax system is part of the American spirit. Adam Smith, the inventor of capitalism, based it on the rich paying more.

You do a flat tax, you are either going to send a shitload of lower-middle class people into poverty, and already poor people onto the streets and starving....or drastically reduce revenue from high income americans, adding substantially to the national debt; either way you're fucked.

The disincentive argument is just silly, people are going to willingly make less than they otherwise could, just because of taxes? You can't really believe that. Or where are they going to move, Canada, Western Europe? Uh, probably not, it's just as high there, maybe higher. No, you can go to Mexico, or Brazil...right.

The tax cuts on the top 2% are a big reason for our defecit is where it's at (along with 2 wars and a Housing/Bank crisis)

It's not punishing them. It's supporting those who are less fortunate. Everyone who is wealthy has had some sort of good luck/fortune/blessing, it's the moral and ethical thing to do. Plus, our country only functions well when it is happening

The gap between the rich and middle class and poor is rising exponetially already. It would get much worse under your theories.

This shit all day. This is where Obama is handcuffed, because the right preaches all this national debt shit, BUT the right thing to do(IMO) is just be like "Fuck the debt and fuck the top 1 or 2%. Y'all are gonna be just fine."
