Santa Lechuga Power League:

The Best Damn Fantasy Baseball League In the Universe! (Yes. Universe.)

SMACK!

Keeping The Foot On The Accelerator

Sometimes we here at the SLPL blog get so caught up in other things -- travel, interesting GIFs, tips of the ballcap, useless websites, and such -- that we forget that we’ve got one hell of a fantasy baseball season happening right under our noses. Oh, hey, lookie here! Four teams have apparently been battling it out for the top spot already this season and we haven’t even reached June. Who knew? The best part, though, is knowing that the eventual winner of this season’s Overall championship is likely not even going to be one of those four teams. Instead, it’s likely going to be some dark horse currently sitting in the middle of the pack with a funky team name and an owner who claims that the Dodgers still belong in the major leagues. That’s how this league rolls.

Which makes the news today all the more interesting. League leader
Paul Martin, owner of the Cabbage Farmers, just made two trades, apparently in the hopes of putting his foot on the accelerator while his rivals scratch their heads about what to do. Do they counter move, hoping to trap the ol’ bishop with queen-rook combo? Do they do nothing in the hopes that it makes Paul look desperate? What. To. Do? It’ll will be fun to watch.

Meanwhile, a player on more than a handful of teams finally went on the DL. Matt Kemp, who appears on 12 rosters,
is out for a coupla weeks, which hopefully prompts at least a few trades.

Anyway, sorry we’ve not been more aware that the fantasy season is happening right in front of our eyes. We’ll try to be more diligent. Oh, hey, look! A cool GIF!

That Should Minimize the Raw, Heart-Wrenching, Bone-Crunching Pain

Trying to deflect the enormous amount of smack coming his way after the Giants swept the Dodgers this weekend, Golden Sombrero’s owner Brandon Olivarria created this auto responder, which he employed liberally Sunday night: “To whom it may concern: I will not be responding to any texts about the sweep the Giants put on the Dodgers. I appreciate your not-so-gentle words. Have a good Cinco de Mayo! Gracias. ~Brandon (still a Dodger fan).”

Hand Full of Nuts

The SLPL is getting some decent Twitter action this season. Yesterday @chacharmon23 (Kempin' It Real! owner Kyle Harmon) Tweeted the following to @pedregoso (Pepino Monos owner me) and @peytonolivarria (No Greinke My Wankee owner Peyton Olivarria) with a tip of the ball cap to Hamiltoes owner Tyler Shaddy for the screen capture.

By the way, if Peyton does’t use the above photo in all of her future No Greinke My Wankee promotional materials, she needs to fire her marketing person.

I’m still new to the whole Twitter thingy, but if you’re a Twit I believe you can follow any of us. So follow us!

Money Is What Makes the League Go Round

Our league’s most bitchen owners have already paid their ownership fees. Are you one of them? If not, you can still be considered pretty darn bitchen if you pay quicklike.

Update: Man, I love Vin Scully. Hate the Dodgers, but love Scully.
