2009 Baseball: Wang Dung Phooey

Hmph.  Just learned not to remove my own comments.  Thanks a lot, goofy CBS post scoring system!

2009 Baseball: Wang Dung Phooey

Heh thanks... Major League is a certified classic. :)  I just realized that I've made references to the movie two weeks in a row, after using the Bob Uecker line in Week 1.  Crazy Larry was actually the one who posted a news item to our league saying that Joeboo was involved in his loss.  (More specifically, the "F you Joeboo, I do it myself!" line.)  I used to always think that Kenny Lofton reminded me of Willie Mays Hayes.

The Indians... I don't even know who plays for the Indians anymore, it seems, aside from Travis Hafner and Grady Sizemore.  Ah... Shin-Soo Choo is not bad - an underestimated fantasy outfielder who I had down the stretch last season.  I see Victor Martinez is still alive... I don't view the Indians as a credible threat to my White Sox, especially with how bad their pitching has been to this point.  Cliff Lee, Fausto Carmona, Carl Pavano... and it gets worse from there.  Bullpen... yuck.  Won't be long before they really are recruiting from the California Penal League for pitching.

2009 Baseball: Wang Dung Phooey

 Always enjoy reading about your Fnatasy League. Particularly fond of the reference to Joeboo and Cerrano from the movie Major league. The first one was the best and the second and thrird were poor attempts to make more money.

The Indians have a storied history, but their one claim to fame(besides 2 world championships), was winning 111 games in 1954 to take the pennant. The Giants had Bobby Thompson's shot heard round the world, and they beat the Indians, 4 games to none. One of the highlights of the series was the spectacular catch made by Willie Mays, that is still shown today, and considered to be one of the greatest catches of all time.  

The last time the indians won the series was in 1948. Looks like they're headed to another dismal season...
