Click on the thumbnail below for one brave soul’s full scoresheet from last night’s Yankees-Rays little league game. Thanks to diehard Yanksfan 4thLSG for the artistic mess.
This is a remarkable feat from an obviously educated Yankee fan (even though that is oxymoron). Even the Bruiser would be proud. See also Steve Rushin’s article at http://premium.si.cnn.com/pr/subs/siexclusive/2005/writers/steve_rushin/05/23/rushin0530/index.html
TS Eliot said that after Joyce’s Ulysses there was nothing further that could be done with the novelistic form. Yanksfan 4thLSG, I will never attempt to fill out a score sheet again.
holy crap…agreed Nick
Way to be Captain Scorecard man.
Question for Sox fans out there (fantasy related):
What type of 2nd half will Schilling have if all goes well?
Last year I asked the SF about a trade and he gave perfect advice, which I ignored, and lost the league (http://yanksfansoxfan.typepad.com/ysfs/2004/05/mvps.html#comments )
Now I have been offered Santana and Young for Tejada and Schilling. It is a non-keeper points league where last year year Santana and Young had almost exactly as many combined points as Schilling and Tejada.
It all hinges on Schilling though?
Can he start 15 games from here on out and start them well?
Yikes, rotisserie! After 15 years of playing, I bowed out this season, so my brain is in non-roto mode. One question: what’s the point of trading starter for starter and shortstop for shortstop, other than to hedge against Schilling not returning? Shouldn’t you be looking for a trade where you get more than fair value out of a position? But based on the deal, from what I can guess you are giving up Tejada and “downgrading” to Young to hedge against Schilling bombing out in the 2nd half, or not pitching at all (perish the thought!). So it’s very simple – do you have the offense to trade? If you think Schilling is going to be less than his normal self and you can give up the offense, then absolutely make the trade, since Santana will likely outperform even a healthy Schilling. And that’s the end of my roto-advice. From here on out ask frequent commenter Spidey, who will probably offer you whatever you want for Juan Gonzales (he loves the guy).
As for what I think Schilling will do in real terms? I have absolutely no clue at all, and am not afraid to admit that. If his ankle feels ok, and he’s at average strength, then the Sox have an upgrade. But I really have no idea at all, since I am not privy to anything remotely resembling medical information nor would I know how to interpret it even if I did.
