TWO OUTS!!! It seems we had a mini-PG convention this weekend in St. Louis, home of this years All Star game. That's right, Baby Bisho, T-Dub, and Mr. Hackman united for a night of boozing and bashing. No word yet on casualties, but I'm guessing it got pretty ugly. So if you're out there today, pray tell. Special thanks to Baby Bisho for offering a ticket to the Futures Game as well as tonights Home Run Derby. I'm pissed I couldn't get down there. Last time I had a offer like this, Yankee Mike was ordering me to hop on a train from Boston to New York for the Yankees-Mets World Series. I sat that one out and have regretted it ever since.
Is everyone tuning in to the derby tonight? I'm not as much of a fan of the derby as I am the goings-on during the derby. Players milling around, taking snapshots and video of everyone. I like the interviews, the behind the scences stuff. It's always fun to get an inside look at the action.
Wow, tying the Gorilla's. A dubious achivement. I might be a pussy, Linc(as mentioned in Friday's comments). But you're team is playing like they have one.
Hef pulled the old switcheroo and sent Rocky Mike to the depths of PG East (don't worry, Rocky Mike, it's gonna take a lot to hit rock bottom. The Daddy's have a swagger, as referenced by his mouthy ways on the blog lately. His pretty close to being dubbed a complete team. Except for the saves, of course.
Calls to 3K went unanswered this weekend, could he be giving PG a taste of his own medicine? Or was he so focused on beating Fenway Ed? Year 2000! made a late push, but to no avail. .500 in PG West is a tough place to be. That's 2nd in PG East. Just sayin.
Hackman, I hope you gave Baby Bisho all kinds of shit over beers this weekend in The Lou. Bisho has a strange sense of priorities, in that he'll get fired up from a little fantasy baseball ribbing or Ritz-Carlton softball games, stuff like that. Hope you didn't go easy on him.
PG wanted a skunk and a skunk is what PG got!!!!!!!! See Yankee Mike, that's karma from berating me on the blog last week (and those half-assed trade offers you threw my way Friday night). The quality of your trade negotiations is directly proportional to the love you receive from the fantasy Gods week in and week out. It's fantasy 101, Yankee Mike, it's not rocket science.

I wanted a skunk here but The Ger just wasn't having it. A very nice push for the SwinGERS, but at the end of the day, the more successful McCreery carried the day. Hey Ger, any reason why you played Skip Schumacher over Ryan "4 Bombs and 15 RBI" Ludwick?
