I’ll Be Brief

Week two of our season is in the books, and the competition is as fierce as ever. I have never started a fantasy season 1-0, so to be one of only 3 teams to be 2-0 after two weeks is blowing my mind.

So far this season there have been a few interesting trades. I really liked WILLIS Be The Year going against conventional wisdom and trading Hanley for stud pitcher and chronic mound-sprinter Cliff Lee. I think this trade is a good deal for both teams, unlike the shellacking I gave Allan in the Gallardo/VMart deal. Keep throwing those 90-mph fastballs Yovani!

I’m going to keep this post short. The Boston Bad Boy is in town for a couple of days and we’re heading to the Trop to see Edwin Jackson outduel David Price. So without further adieu… here are your Week 2 power rankings.

  1. Yankeehaters
  2. Rays Those Cowbells
  3. bostobadboys
  4. chefdicks11
  5. Love Boat Captains
  6. RedRays
  7. WILLIS Be The Year
  8. Sam’s Baseball Train
  9. UNsportsmanMike
  10. ToPpIn Da ChArTz


Go Sox!

    Yes! I moved up in the rankings! I hope u enjoyed the brilliant pitching by David price

  2. Dave Says:

    Price looked great. He totally shut down a really good offense

  3. Dan The #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Indeed he did. Good trade there Mike, you totally took me to the cleaners. Although I was pleased with how Lincecum pitched tonight. Could the number one and number two teams in the power rankings come into a week 4 showdown unbeaten? Only time will tell.

    -I still think Allan should be higher, his team is way better than his record. He will prove himself over time.

    – The Love Boat Captians really impressed me last week. Somehow, someway, she always finds a way to win a game she needs to have. The heart of a champion.

    – The Bostobadboys top 3 of Kershaw, Lester and Beckett has a chance to be deadly.

    – Sam Fuld is fast approaching Evan Longoria for most popular Ray.

    – Dice K threw a gem today. Whoa

    – King Felix threw for 3 points in a two start week against me. I should try to get Jessica Alba to be my girlfriend, because im clearly the luckiest dude on the face of the earth.

    – Thanks to chefdicks11 for starting Esmil Rodgers. I dont know who that is, but he’s my new favorite pitcher.

    Good luck to everyone in week 3. Nothing beats thefoulline.com fantasy baseball league and checking the review on monday. Keep em coming Dave.

    I would like to reply to a couple of your statements:

    1. Allans team blows!
    2. Love Boats are going to lose this week
    3. Don’t count on the Badboy having all 3 of those aces next week. ( hint)
    4. The crowd at the Trop absolutely went crazy for Fuld last night. He’s the Pedroia of the outfield… Little bastard
    5. Still not touching Dice BB
    6. King Felix has looked pretty ordinary this year. And with that offense, he needs his A game- every game
    7.I was starting to miss Dave mcglaughlin, until I saw Chefdicks lineup blow up in his face. Quality over quantity is my saying.


    Last night on the way to the RAYS game mr yankeehater is flying along at 90 miles and hour and writing his foulline piece with his free hand.SCAREEEE…DAVID PRICE



    ITS TOO BAD NO ONE GOES TO THE RAYS GAMES.. THEY PLAY REALLY HARD AN ARE FUN TO WATCH..A GUY SAID AT THE GAME “with the lightning playing,girls softball.little league people have other things to do” BADBOYS THRE WEEKSIN A ROW…..bam bam bam.. the cow bells wack it

  7. Dan The #1 Rays Fan Says:

    I hope you do make your team better Dave I really do. I want you to give me your best shot next week. I really think my team can win it all.

  9. allan Says:

    its amazing how things are starting to turn around for most people

  10. Dan The #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Indeed. Good win this week Allan. Good win. I been saying the whole time your team is better than your record. I really have.

  11. allan Says:

    I know…and I didnt have to screw anybody over on a trade to do it (cough cough) lol

  12. Dan The #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Lol every time Rasmus hits a bomb and Schrezer throws for 30 points I change my mind on that trade a little more.

  13. Dave Says:

    Well, the 3 stooges tried their best to veto a trade that was more then fair. And you couldn’t pull it off. So sad.
    I wont forget this..
    Dan I kick your ass every time we play. This streak WILL continue this week. I just don’t want to hear any of your lame excuses.
    Allan…your team is a joke. I may only start half my team when I play you, just to give you a half a chance.
    I was content to just go through the season whipping everyone’s asses, but now I’m gonna ramp it up and make it my personal goal to ensure that you two are watching the playoffs this year.
    Yankeehaters 4-0. Put it in the books!

    Power rankings out tomorrow….I’m at work

  14. Dan The #1 Rays Fan Says:

    You got lucky and pulled a win out of your ass this week. That will not happen two weeks in a row. You better bring your A game if you want to beat me.

    Just bring it.

  15. Dave Says:


  16. Dan The #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Destroying you is going to be by far the greatest satisfaction of my fantasy career.

  17. Dave Says:

    That’s the most pathetic thing I’ve ever read.
    You’re going to have to win the next 5 against me just to get at .500

    That’s hilarious!

  18. Dan The #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Typical Boston fan. Always talking about the past. Its about this season. Live in the moment. Next thing I know your going to be shouting out 1918!!

  19. Dave Says:

    Dan… Your incessant incoherent babble wears me out. Your flukey 3 week run is coming to end. You have a team of paper champions, that’s gonna lose big. So do me a favor… shut your trap and just prepare your concession speech for Sunday.

  20. Dan The #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Whatever you say Dave. Keep pumping your chest over your lucky win against a far superior Love Boat Captains team. At least im the best fantasy player in my own family.

  21. Dave Says:

    Good one Dan. I’d like to believe that their is someone in your household that knows something about baseball and has actually sniffed making the playoffs.
    I may be wrong.

  22. Dan The #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Its a new season Dave, and im unbeaten. I plan on staying that way after this week. Good luck this week, but not to much luck.

    Looking forward to the fantasy review tomorrow.

  23. allan Says:

    wow you got lucky dave and pulled off a win…maybe if votto wasnt walks 8 times the lbc’s could have gotten u but its whatever. my team is a joke you say? well I got my 1st victory last week without!!! my 1st round pick but who needs there 1st round pick??? lol maybe ill screw dan over n trade 2 pairs aof socks and a golf ball for lincecum lol….I get my offers from you dave…I truely admire u BUD lol

  24. Dave Says:

    Wow! Allan finally wins a game against a weak opponent and is suddenly a fantasy expert. Weird? Allan is a lot like the Atlanta braves… Hyped coming into the season and not living up to it. So sad. I can’t believe you two re-tards ( The Hangover) are still whining about the Lester trade. It was a fair trade. Time to move on.
    I’m sorry you guys lack the savvy to pull these types of deals off that are mutually beneficial. Allan, this is fantasy baseball, your guys get injured. It happens to everyone. You’re the sucker that drafted a fragile 3B in the 1st round.

  25. Dan The #1 Rays Fan Says:

    ZZZZZZZZ The only one not moving on is you. I think were all tired of hearing about your little Lester trade. Nobody cares, move on. Dave keeps going on and on about how it was a fair trade, it sounds like he is trying to convince himself and not us.

    Its ok Dave. It went through. Move on with your life.

  26. Dave Says:

    Did you see Allans comment above mine? That was what I was responding to. Believe me, I am so ready to move on.

  27. Dan The #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Im more focused on today. Getting some good starts and getting back into the game. Hoping to tie the game around thursday, than use Lincecum and Sabathia to build a big enough lead to survive Jered Weaver’s 35 point start Saturday. That’s ridiculous. Dude is a robot.

  28. Dave Says:

    It sucks that Pujols is out tonight Dan. I really hope he’s back tomorrow.

  29. Dan The #1 Rays Fan Says:

    Me too. I promise I wont use it as an excuse if he only plays the weekend and I lose. Ryan Braun can break his arm jogging out to LF tonight. It happens.
