Otters/Cubs connect.

It just occurred to me. I’ve their closer, Dempster, and Soriano [as in, “so goes Alphonso, so goes the Otters- America’s team”] in my Fantasy League. Ergo, I’m heavily invested in the Cubbies, a snake bitten franchise [see Mark Prior]. I’m reminded of Jim Brosnan’s great book, entitled “Long Season.” This looks like it’s gonna be a damn long season. As I peck, Derrek Lee just took Dempster out of a save situation by going long for the very first time of the year. Didn’t take long to prove my point.

Under the heading of “why this may be the last year I play Fantasy Baseball:” Toddness Helton went 4/5 with production this morning [my time], helping his Rockies defeat my beloved Mets. My head hurts…

…, but not as much as Mrs. Tillman’s. Her son Pat died of “friendly fire” [an oxymoron]. Because he was a former football player, the administration covered up the cause of death, lied to his survivors and the rest of the country. Bad fascists, go to your rooms.
