    I call for an independent counsel to investigate collusion between Minneapolis and the comsh in order to take down their two biggest rivals. Are there any lawyers on this board?

    A 6-1 week is definitely an improvement! We're flirting with .500 and have cut our playoff deficit to 8 games.

    Tony Farmer has now agreed to and then rejected three contract extensions this year. This guy is really starting to piss me off.

    Edit: he just agreed to a fourth. I look forward to an OUTRAGED email in 2-3 weeks.

    Man, I don't know what in the world is going on with this team. Despite being without Changgok all season (he's thankfully back after the next sim although he'll do a rehab stint first) we're second in the league in runs allowed thanks to solid pitching and very good defense. Our bullpen has been very good, Marc Green has come back from injury better than ever, and rookie Alex Aragon has been a sensation. The normally superb David Borges is just 1-6 with a 4.35 ERA but that's basically just his .323 BABIP because his FIP is 3.19. Offensively I have literally no fucking idea what is going on. Despite losing Wiley Greer we're first in walks, home runs, doubles, OBP, SLG and OPS by a full 26 points. On paper we should be right there with New Orleans in the standings. Instead we're fifth in runs scored and are 47 runs behind New Orleans. On top of that we're underperforming our expected record by 3 wins. So we've been math unlucky and, I guess, hit sequencing unlucky. Thankfully, we're just two games off the wildcard pace and Changgok will soon replace the not terribly effective Antonio Carmona in the rotation so we still have a shot to get in the playoffs and from there it's all luck baby.
