    Total Ambien Baseball League

    I've just been inspired to start my first solo league in a very long time. There are three motivations for this league: sympathy for the Baltimore Orioles and their fans, a prolonged bout of insomnia, and popular demand from nearly all quarters for me to post more on ambien. So here it is. My intention is to not post about or play this league at all except in the middle of the night while under the influence of ambien.

    I have version 19, so I autosimmed through 2018 to get us to the current offseason. And low and behold, the O's signed Machado for 2 years and a player option, all at $22m. Hurray! The lineup is terrible- Schoop, Davis, and Mancini were 2-3 WAR players, C Thoman Tellis did 1.3, and there's no one else above 1. Actually submitting a lineup of these guys is going to feel like eating a shit sandwich. Starting rotation is Bundy-Gausman-Cobb-Cashner-Cortez, who were all terrible last year except Bundy. Bullpen looks like a shitshow.

    Sadly, the O's are over budget and have no money to spend in free agency. Several players come off the books after next season, so more flexibility then. For now though, it's basically trotting out piles of shit in Orioles uniforms and hoping nobody notices.

    Got a pretty good player named Mike Ford in the Rule 5 draft. Otherwise, shit sandwich. 7-16 with closer Pedro Araujo out for three months.

    I was coming in here to reply to whoever suggested nicknames for all my players what a great idea that was. But it seems there was no such post. As a result the nicknames will take a somewhat darker, more melancholy turn. Here's our starting lineup:

    CF Cedric "Viscous Crunch" Mullins
    LF Trey "Angel Sex Avenger" Mancini
    SS Manny "Blood Puppy" Machado
    DH Mike "Shit Kaleidescope" Ford
    RF Anthony "Crumbling Edifice" Santander
    1B Chris "Oh God Why" Davis
    2B Jonathan "Deduction of Seduction" Schoop
    C Yan "Mr. Nothing 2" Gomes
    3B Ryan "Ee-ee-ee-AH" Mountcastle

    Was really expecting an update here.
    I understand that and fully understand that and I think we had a previous President who did not understand that but I understand that and we have spoken about this before.

    Please note this post was made by the 2012 NFL Losers Pool Champion.

    Same, but I guess part of the point is the Ambien cares naught for our expectations.

    Well I just went to open this and apparently someone hacked my computer because the league has been deleted! It's has to be the North Koreans, we cannot give those fuckers 2 million dollars for Otto Warmbier!

    Fuck no. Waiting to see which Dem candidate will have the most hawkish Tweet about this.

    Whatever, that was a dumb concept anyway. Everyone knows this was meant to be a historical league with an initial draft starting in 1978, because that's the first year I can remember knowing what year it was. Stay tuned you motherfuckers.
