Re: RIP Kent Stermon

Dave Clum let me know the day it happened. Neither him nor I could get our heads around it. Whatever the issue (health, legal, political), I cannot fathom what would have driven Kent to this. I met him in Florida when we were doing drafts down there. We developed a friendship there and on the boards...

Re: The First 195 NFBC Participants: A Remembrance

That first year, a buddy of mine, who was a bit tired of me talking about my fantasy baseball prowess, saw the NFBC add in a paper and basically dared me to join in. After asking my wife, who graciously allowed me to get out of her hair for a weekend, I signed up. Never regretted it. Rio! baby! Had ...

Re: The PreMature E-Draftulation League

Congrats to Aaron Judge who set the all time legitimate Home Run record. What a class act he is. Team first attitude. Humble every day. Even Yankee haters are happy for the man. +1. And most importantly, authentic. Agreed...61 in '61 lasted 61 years! Now with the Yankees already having a 2022 $246M...

Re: My Blog is Back and Your Gonna be in Trouble...hey la, hey la, My Blog is Back!

This post will neither be funny or fun to do. Dave Clum has been in contact with the wife of a long time NFBC participant, Bill Strickler. Bill, to the great sadness of all who met him and competed against him, unexpectedly passed away September 15th. While Bill had contracted COVID recently, his wi...

Re: My Blog is Back and Your Gonna be in Trouble...hey la, hey la, My Blog is Back!

And the Braves suprise me again. Raisel Iglesias....now you have both him and Jansen holding up the 8th/9th innings. Minter has had a great year and Dylan Lee has shown back-end stuff enough for the Braves to send Will Smith away, so LH is good. Matzek (LHP) and McHough (RHP) in the middle. Don't kn...

Braves acquired 2B Robinson Canó from the Padres for cash considerations. Canó re-signed a minor league deal with the Padres back on June 10, but didn't earn a promotion to the big leagues. He hit just .094/.121/.094 with 10 strikeouts in 33 plate appearances with the Padres at the big league level....

You are, as you most always are, correct. The (rag, fish wrap) Atlanta Journal-Constitiution was also this AM posting the conundrum as Strider, with his 100 pitch effort last night, has reached about 2/3rds of his prior year usage. Obviously, the ASB will allow the Braves to set their starter schedu...

One of my favorite actors passed away. James Edmund Caan (March 26, 1940 – July 6, 2022). He was in so many of my favorite movies, but the media is focusing on the role of Sonny Corleone in The Godfather (1972), following which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor and the...
