My how the mighty have fallen. After 4 losses to open the season, Paul is starting an upswing though…thanks to Carl Crawford, Jimmy Rollins, Travis Hafner, and pretty decent pitching. Pate is 5th in Runs, 2nd in HRs and 1st in RBIs, but is 12-11-1 in those categories. Pitching has never been a problem for Pate, and it’s just a matter of time for the offense to click on all cylinders week in and week out no matter the opponent. The only way Paul has a prayer is to make a Benson like deal with his players that if Andy teabags his sister, then all of them can…wait…didn’t that happen? Hafner and Crawford “goes off”, but everyone else is gay.

My Prediction: PAIN (in my best Mr. T voice) Pate wins 7-3 even though MHD hates all trades involving Pate.

Matchup #2 MHD vs. Gibby

Battle of Division Leaders. With the horndogette out of town, fresh off of a Vegas trip, and Juiced finally going out w/ the ad campaign…things are looking up. But too much red meat and beer gets the best of MHD as he slacks on setting his lineup (he doesn’t set it for early games for the 2nd week in a row). Gibby’s new job at the track yields little time for TMB, but he manages to keep Pujols in the lineup and doesn’t trade him to Pate.

Prediction: Tie 4-2-4 while Ollie throws a no-hitter and MHD doesn’t complain about that trade.

Matchup #3 Krueg vs. AndJob

Krueg lost to Pedro. Krueg lost to Pedro. I thought I’d type in twice in case you missed it. Poor Krueg. Sounds like he needs to make a deal (to Pate). Andy tells Krueg he wants to teabag his sister. Krueg Wookies-out and beats the living tea out of Andy. AntNoJobLikeAWookieBeatingMyAss changes his name. What of the teabagging request. Lemme tell you what now. Krueg’s gonna call up a couple a hard, pipe-hittin’ niggas and go to work on the holmes here with a pair a pliars and a blowtorch. You hear me talkin’ AntNoJobLikeAWookieBeatingMyAss Hillbilly Boy? I ain’t through with you by a damn site. I’m gonna get medieval on your ass. AndJob never makes tea again.

Prediction Krueg 30-1

Matchup #4 Tim vs. Pedro

Add these 2 two together…these two have an .819 winning percentage. Pedro is making a case to not finish in the cellar. He got a good matchup this week versus Tim. I think Pedro will pass Luke this week. Tim knows he’s playing in a Yahoo league and not Stoney’s…right? Tim is last in the league in offense and he is hanging his hopes on a Josh Barfield and CoCo Crisp revolution. He needs to trade Vladdy for a couple of keepers (to Pate preferably) and think about next year.

Prediction Pedro 6-2

Matchup #5 Duke vs. Lackey

Got some advice. Lackey…drop Chacon and stream that position. I would also shop Holliday around for some offense (an OF and 1B) while the iron is hot. Duke…Drop freaking Baldelli, Aurillia, and McCann already (or trade them…but I doubt you’d have many takers). Pick up some pitching. Make something happen w/ pitching…you have a decent offense. Duke has 7 transactions (that’s 0.875 transactions per week) and Lackey has 5 transactions (or 0.625 transactions per week). The transactions averages for the top eight in the league are 3.375 transactions per week. The averages for the bottom eight are 1.3125 transactions per week. What does this mean. Not a damn thing b/c you won’t read this to take some advice anyway. Duke gets in good w/ his offense and wins the rate stats and wins (b/c Lackey’s pitching sucks).

Prediction Duke 7-3

Matchup #6 Jimmy vs. Phil

The Bulls’ lottery has Phil all stoked for not caring about his team. Jimmy tries to continue his non-losing ways (hasn’t lost since week 3). But neither team cares so much that both end up losing. Mantis gets pissed that people don’t care so much…bearclaws them both b/c Jimmy spilled beer on him again and Phil rants about pink elephants and pringles.

Prediction Mantis wins 10-0

Matchup #7 Mantis vs. Dickman

Mantis is too busy bearclawing Jimmy and Phil that he bearly remembers to beat the living crap out of Dickman. Dickman is 4th in the league. Did I just type that…maybe he’ll be the most improved team. Besides SBs, Dickman’s offense is unreal. That doesn’t make any sense. I suppose Johnson, Jeter, Blake, and Jones are all having good seasons…who would’ve thought. He “bolstered” his SP by adding Lowe (he’s 5-7-4 combined in Ws and Ks against the rest of the league). Mantis wins SBs, SVs, Ks, and ERA. That’s it though.

Prediction Dickman 6-4

Matchup #8 Strode vs. Luke

Strode Loses all his money on blackjack and deals w/ the wife (and cat for that matter) for being insensitive to the needs of the family (self-centered goat). Luke…I don’t know you and you never talk on TMB. You suck. It’s tough to predict suckiness…but based on the W-L and cumulative stats for these teams I’ll say Strode wins Rs, SBs, OBP, and Ks. Luke wins the rest as he asks Gibby for Mrs. Goat’s number.

Prediction Luke 6-4

YOU ALL SUCK…nothing in the trash talk thread since May 16th besides Gibby giving well-wishing to MHD.


MML2006 Week 8 Results

Blogged by Pate as Uncategorized — Pate Tue 30 May 2006 4:58 am

Matchup #1  Pate vs. Lackey

 

Prediction: N/A

 

Pate had a 3 game winning streak and Lackey was limping in with a 5 game losing streak.  Lackey needed a miracle.  He didn’t and is now tied for the worst losing streak in the league at 6 weeks (w/ Pedro).  Pate equaled a league best 4 game winning streak along and picked up Hoffman in the process (even though he is tied for third in the league in saves).

 

Result Pate  8-0-2

 

Matchup #2  MHD vs. Tim

 

Tim didn’t have a chance.  Here’s the splits.  Tim’s offense 12-26-2 and MHD’s 25-14-1.  Tim’s pitching 20-182 and MHD’s 25-13-2.  Tim didn’t have a prayer offensively (except stolen bases…whewhoo).  He picked up saves and whip…but lost to a much better squad.

 

Prediction: N/A

 

Result MHD 7-3

 

Matchup #3  Krueg vs. Dickman

 

Krueg abandoned streaming after horrible starts for Floyd and Trachsel.  Didn’t help his cause as he lost the cumulative stats along with the rate stats in the pitching categories.  The hitting was split.  Notables were Nick Johnson (traded to Dickman from Pate for Derek Lowe…who he then traded for in the Hoffman deal).  Also notable is that Dickman has the weakest strength of scheduling…interesting stat…huh Krueg?

 

Prediction: N/A

 

Result Dickman 6-2-2

 

Matchup #4  Gibby vs. Phil

 

Interesting matchup of 1 vs. 3 in the Bachelor division.  Phil is recovering from his first week of summer school while Gibby finally shows up on the board to talk smack to MHD for next week.  Shouldn’t talk too much smack if you can’t even own your own division.

 

Prediction: N/A

 

Result Tie 5-5

 

Matchup #5  AndJob vs. Jimmy

 

Jimmy took a 3 game winning streak into the second place AndJob’s matchup.  Man…Jimmy put up some real good offensive numbers (47-10-43-4-.427).  Youklis had 12 freaking runs.  However, AndJob showed why he’s second.  Even though he played a great offense…he managed to take HRs and SBs.  He took the pitching rate stats and wins to manage a tie.  Good for you guys.  BTW…I was being sarcastic.

 

Prediction: N/A

 

Result Tie 5-5

 

Matchup #6  Paul vs. Luke

 

Crawford, Zito, and Hafner might just save Paul’s season.  He beat a tough Luke team (not really…his only win was against Krueg in week 3).  It’s interesting that Luke has the strongest strength of schedule…he maintains that status as he loses to a resurging Paul.

 

Prediction: N/A

 

Result Paul 6-4

 

Matchup #7  Duke vs. Pedro

 

Even though Pedro passed the 1,000 post mark…he still hasn’t put much effort into his team (only 7 transactions…maybe he’s just distracted and mad that midgets don’t have to go to jail or the money he lost on the blackjack table).  That being said…he played a team that pays even less attention (just 3 transactions) and pulls out the W out of a bank teller machine somewhere in Vegas and is riding high on a 2 game winning streak.

 

Prediction: N/A

 

Result Pedro 6-3-1

 

Matchup #8  Mantis vs. Strode

 

Strode’s crap for poetry and Vegas-hype didn’t did help his fantasy baseball team.  Mantis golf w/ hot chick did…well…sort of.  I don’t really call a 5-4 win a drubbing by any means…but it’s a W and he’ll take it any way he can (and especially if she’s Asian).  Strode, however, still hasn’t taken much of anything lately (and especially if she’s Mrs. Goat).

 

Prediction: N/A

 

Result Mantis 5-4-1
