What should I be doing instead of this?

Random Ramblings


Not a lot of time, and nothing much to say. Sometimes, that's just how it goes. Perhaps I'm too pissed at Chien Ming Wang. I don't know if my fantasy league is punishing pitchers too much or if Mr. Wang has truly been that bad (I suspect he has), but to get -20 points or worse for his first two outings is, as Charles Barkley would say, "Turble."

I have Nick Swisher tearing it up, and Adam Dunn is putting up his usual numbers. I just don't know if I'd be better off starting Tomo Okha or Hideki Irabu.

One thing I've seen that I like a lot more than getting jobbed by bad pitchers is the Royals wearing those pale blue 80's jerseys. Those are great.

For some reason, I really like Alberto Callaspo, too. I think he is an above-average utility player.

I, like Danny Cross, watched the Reds last night until they cut from the game in the bottom of the ninth to show Rob Dibble or some zhlubs of equal value yakking it up about Best Wings of All Time or something just as meritous.

Someone in the FoxSports control room needs to either smoke the whole joint before their shift starts or none at all. It seems like burning just half of it has resulted in many, many miscues.

Edwin Encarnacion's grand slam last night shows why I like him. Say what you will about his fielding troubles, but the guy can rake and is still just 25.

Laynce Nix looks solid, too. Ramon Hernandez, not so much. Dusty Baker can't be too shy about saying "Hanigan, the job is yours" if Hernandez is going to put up Paul Bako numbers.

I sure hope I don't get killed riding my bike into work today. You can see the true color of many Cincinnatians whilst on a bike. Hesitant to budge an inch to help another person, and easily upset.

I don't know what else I have to say. It's so early in the season still.

Mike Pelfrey and Oliver Perez look terrible.

Harang looks great, and Volquez looks like Cueto.

Micah Owings will have a good year. Pitching too.

Anyhoot, loyal reader ... it's been real. I shall endeavor to dispatch my knowledge to you on a more regular basis as the season progresses. Thank you kindly.

Lastly, if Wang stinks it up again, what should I do? Hold on to him like I did Ryan Grant's useless ass in Fantasy Football last year? Shucks.
