Roto Imbeciles
Fantasy Baseball for the Roto Enthusiast
Friday August 15, 2014: In response to a good friend of mine who received 4 players for Domonic Brown last season in our $260-NL. The other owner's reasoning for giving up a king's ransom for Brown was that he would be one of the best keepers coming into this season at $5. I was among the few and the proud who thought this was a little bit of hogwash. After all, Brown was starting to show his true colors toward the end of that '13 campaign. My friend' who's still the greatest D.Brown supporter who's not family says the reason for any ignominy is that Brown is batting #7 in the Phillies' order. I also take that with a pound of salt! In 26 games played in April of this year, Domonic Brown batted 6th on 23 occasions and 7th the other 3. In fact for the season, Brown has batted 6th 64 times. I think it was about when the Phillies realized that Brown just wasn't cutting the mustard, they dropped him to the 7 hole. Brown's season hasn't been what you expected, Stork, but it was kind of in line with what others from this great site thought. His BA is at .226 in 371 AB with 7 HR and 53 RBI. Brown's .615 OPS shows just how bad his season has been. In my humble opinion, the Phillies have trotted Brown out more than he deserved. Last year's season of providence may go down as Brown's pinnacle of success when all is said and done.

Someone on the site had the nerve to proclaim that they've never heard of Honus Wagner. This is a baseball site, for God's sake! I could almost understand if this were a soccer site. As George Bernard Shaw opined some time back over an 18 yr old Scotch and a good cigar, "Youth is wasted on the young!" I think that comment was meant for that particular blogger. And a Honus Wagner baseball card is about as rare as a good blog by him! Wagner was one of the original 5 Hall of Fame members in 1936 along with Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Christy Matthewson, and Walter Johnson. The greatest baseball names of all time and all top 10 players. Wagner and I did share 6 months on earth together as he dies in November of '55. Wagner was a .328 lifetime hitter with 1733 RBI, 1739 runs, 723 SB, and an .858 OPS. He also stroked 253 triples and 653 doubles in a career that spanned 21 seasons.
