Gut Check Friday

My apologies again for not providing the PG faithful with Gut Check Thursday yesterday. Work got in the way (if you need proof, turn on the TV or pick up a newspaper and you'll see my handiwork, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAHA). Ok, i'll stop gloating, onto GUT....CHECK....FRIDAY!!!!!!

The SwinGERS-8
Baby Gorillas-2

Thank you sir, may I have another? WHACK!!! Thank you sir, may I have another WHACK!!! Thank you sir may I have another?

Jimmy's Daddy-6
The Rockpile-3
Tied-1

My apologies to Curtis Granderson and his family for last week's disparaging comments. I promise I will never say such things again. I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE!!!! With the exception of the saves category, this is a pitching duel. And don't kid yourself, this contest is still very much up in the air. I will add Yadier Molina to my list of sleeper picks that I think will pay off big time (I call it the Shin Soo Choo factor).

Year2000!-5
ARodsACyssy-5

Nothing would piss of 3K more than losing to Fenway Ed. He probably would never admit that, but I know the thought of being bested by a New England hockey player is eating him alive. I'm so happy the score is tied going into the weekend. 3K seems to have the edge in the hitting categories, while Year2000! is cornering the pitching market. 3K, are you getting all numb tonight before you watch Justin Verlander take the mound?

Client #9-6
CO Yankees-3
Tied-1

So far Baby Ruth has been a good luck charm for the New York Yankees, can he be as well for the CO Yankees? This is a pretty mish-mosh matchup, with no rhyme or reason to the leaders of each category. Ian Kinsler needs to drop a few bombs to catch the power numbers of Yankee Mike. It doesn't help matters when one of your stars isn't even on the interstate. It seems speed continues to be the key for Client #9, who is far ahead in runs and steals. Could be the key to this weeks victory.

Tallcorn Cobras-8
Hoosier Heat-1
Tied-1

I call this matchup the Mattingly Cup (since both managers are from Indiana). And like Donnie Baseball, both teams are playing at a very high level. This is clearly one of the more exciting matchups to watch going into the weekend. Can Carlos Beltran and Albert Pujols be having a better week (hitting .667 and .545 respectively)? Same with Victor Martinez (.539) and Bobby Abreu (.416). Little known fact, did you know Bobby Abreu leads the American League in stolen bases with 8? Who knew? I smell 20/20. Hey T-Dub, do you stay up at night like a worried parent trying to shield Cole Hamels from all of threats of the outside world?

Clark & Addison-7
Lawndale Longhorns-2
Tied-1

The battle of the Brothers McCreery. I love it. Especially the verbal jabs being dished out by each side. QBF is certainly on the ropes with the war of words, but leading in really the only thing that matters, the actual matchup. But don't kid yourself, this could change very quickly. Can Brandon Inge, Alex Rios, and Carlos Quentin inject enough power to overtake QBF in hitting categories? Or will Manny be Manny, Papi be Papi, and Ryan Howard...well..not continue to do what he's doing this week? BTW, did anyone see Brandon Inge's defensive flubs yesterday? Last week, Harold Renyolds was talking golden glove. Not so sure after last night's performace. Hey Clark & Addison, let me know if QBF is getting to you. We can certainly find a new nickname for you.

Yes, Yankees-Red Sox this weekend. You know what? I'm kind of sick of the rivalry myself. All of the major players are gone for the most part (especially on the Red Sox side) and it seems they have taken a sacred battle and turned it into a cash cow. It's almost like what Jackie Mason did to Bushwood CC in Caddyshack 2. Does that make ESPN a bunch of fonzanoons?

Love the Yanks/RedSox to Bushwood 2 corollary. I can totally see Youkilis being the type that eats the bubble!!

Speaking of eating the bubble, the matchup between me and Fenway Ed is about as close as can be. Although I must say neither of the teams have performed very well this week.

A little half day action for 3K today. Gonna get an early start on my attendance to my first Sox game this year. Hopefully the 80 degree weather will make the ball fly out of the yard tonight for some pinwheel action!

ARodsACyssie said...

Oh and a comment on Bobby Abreu...

I didn't understand it then, and I certainly don't understand it now but how in the hell could the Cubs brass actually think that signing Milton Bradley to a 3/$30M deal would benefit the team better then Bobby Abreu?

Abreu is a better RFer (if we can even call Bradley and OFer?), a more productive hitter, a more consistent hitter and steals bases. That Abreu signing could be the steal of the off-season for the Angels.

Edward said...

Man, ESPN is already hyping Sox-Yanks beyond belief - I have SportsCenter on in the background and they have spent a considerable amount of time on the first of like 19 games between the two teams this season. If anything, I think the fact that they play 6 series each season is diluting the rivalry as well. I miss the days of playing everyone in the same league 12 times a year.

Jason said...

Wait, you mean ESPN is talking about something other than the NFL draft and NBA playoffs?!?

PG said...

Touche, Ger. Well said.

Edward said...

ESPN actually showed highlights of the NHL playoffs last night today. I hate to say it but I hope that the NHL stays on Versus - I like their coverage more than when it was on ESPN.

Ryan said...

PG, let's work on a different nickname. Perhaps T-Dub could weigh in as well...when he gets off the golf course.

I've decided to let my play on the field speak for itself this week.
