Bob will be ecstatic to know that Blanton's first pitch as an Angel left the park courtesy of Mr. Choo.
that was a great pickup for you guys. he's really fitting in.
Ugh...Tigers signed Valverde. Way to overreact to Coke blowing a game he shouldn't have even been in.
Coke is terrible. No way he endures a Detroit inferno at closer.
Much better than Stubbs. Problem is the guys behind him need to hit with RISP.
Agreed, but it was HOF dumb managing by Leyland to waste Benoit on the lefties in the 8th and bringing Coke in to face righties in the 9th.
Remember how I mentioned the BBQ Pork and Perogie Sandwich at PNC Park? Well, this year, they've unveiled the Brunch Burger:
David Straub @dps2002 5m
For the record: The Brunch Burger is a beef patty, ground bacon, maple bacon, egg, and cheese, served on a toasted glazed donut.
And you wonder why Pittsburghers are so obese.
"It's just so hard," Greivis said. "It's my heart, my love. Maryland made me who I am."
Damn, been pondering over the past week or so to pick up Valverde in case he was close to getting signed.
Of course FTN is quicker than lightning and he was gone when I found out the news.

"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
I stopped trying to beat him to the waiver wire because it's pointless.
my problem was more that I didn't have the flexibility when I completely wasted a free agent pick-up or two
Sounds surprisingly like Homer's Good Morning Burger.
How in the piss don't guys use a FAAB system? Waiver Wire is so nub.
FAAB is for guys on waivers. Valverde is a FA and therefore was available immediately.
Porcello gets down 3-1 on Mauer, slaps a ball to left, gets down 2-0 on Willingham, ball deposited in LF bleachers. So much for nu-Porcello. LOL at me for drafting that turd
Right... you should use FAAB for everyone that is a Free Agent. Bids go through twice a week. Gives everyone a fair shot, rather than favoring the guy that can follow people the best on Twitter or is around their computer the most. It's an unfair system. I used to get killed by this in Fantasy Football because I worked at a restaurant on Sundays.

That sounds horrible for baseball. It's very rare you find a guy like Valverde just sitting in the FA pool.
For football I run everyone through waivers from kickoff until Wednesday morning. That gives everyone a fair shot at the FA pool. After Wednesday though it's first come, first serve.
if you like offense, don't watch the cubs-pirates game.
Absolutely agreed with football. Baseball is different as it is a daily game. Therefore, under your reasoning for football, you should be advocating the FAAB system for baseball. It gives everyone a fair shot, which is what you advocate for football, so why not baseball?
If a closer goes down, it's a mad rush to pick up his back-up. In that scenario, the person following Twitter more often or around their computer the most wins the closer. Instead, if you use a FAAB system, everyone gets a chance and has to use the strategy of what they are willing to spend on him. Much more fair. Some people can't sit around Twitter and Yahoo! Fantasy all day like others can at work.
our league is a 12-tea AL-only, so its a moot point because basically everybody on an AL active roster is picked up by somebody.
Just made a great play at 2nd.
This. Plus it's S+H so the top set up men are also taken. Any 10+ team league that is one division only won't have much in the waiver pool.
Even in my mixed league that has FAAB I don't like it. I like to be able to make daily roster moves if I so choose.
heisey (sp) hit an absolute BOMB.
p.s. sorry we can't be friends this weekend.
Dammit, I thought we were going to get Marmol trying to protect a 1-run lead
Oh never mind. First two batters on. McCutcheon up down 3-0 and none out
