Brian I was hoping you were going there in that piece as it is a point I make every spring at the First Pitch forum tours but gets lost in the shuffle and quite frankly, I don't do a good enough job spreading the word in other means.

I won't spoil the piece for those that want to read it, I will only say that HOME RUNS ARE HITS TOO!!!!!

Nice work.

Happy Father's Day to all you Dads out there. I am enjoying my day I and barely got my bids in today. Ole man Chipper joining the Muggers for what will likely be a brief tenure.

He'll likely be on the DL by Friday.

I am on the road - so I will get results posted later tonight/tomorrow.

Not a real busy FAAB week - the biggest buy was new Arizona closer Aaron Heilman - as a Qualls owner I had a bid in - but it wasn't even the runner-up. I just am not sold Heilman can keep the job so my bid was conservative.

I did win the bidding for Chipper Jones by $10 - and I'll hope he can give me some numbers before his next injury.

I also brought back Eric Bedard for $5 - he seems to be nearing an activation - so having had him for two months to start the season - I figured I deserved to either benefit from the return or get burned further by this tease.

Nice week Ryan, #1, good stuff.
Got both guys with just enough V.P. for $2 and Spill for $3, won both by $1. Really lucky.
Team SinCity is expecting a nice run between now and the break.
Looking forward to your 2nd half challenge, good idea.
If you want to run an idea or two by me email at my Yahoo account.

Yeah - even a blind squirrel finds the nut sometimes - and that was the case with the Muggers this week.

Maybe it just had to do with my finally cutting Cameron Maybin. In any case my squad has definitely been playing better lately and I am hoping that certain players continue to heat up - ala Justin Smoak. There actually is a nice bunch of teams in the 70 pt range lumped up behind the Top 5 teams.

I am open to any suggestions for a second half contest - but my first inclination is to rank teams in 4 counting stat categories for the second half - I'm thinking HR's, Runs, W's and K's - it would be easy enough for me to track and compile - and would give everyone a reason to keep going.

The other idea is to pick ONE revolving category every week for all 15 teams to compete in and award points from 1-15. That way we would use all categories at some point.

I'll start a new thread for people to post some of their own thoughts on this.
