At first I got excited when I saw that Jeffrey declared the K-9 as frontrunners based, in part, on a lack of injuries. Then I surfed over to rotoworld.com, and saw the following: Braden to the DL. A-Rod out with oblique/back problems. Gutierrez going to the Mayo Clinic instead of rehab. … Thanks for nothing, Jeff.
Anyway, a bit of history about Pippin’s projections. Before Pippin (may she rest in peace) was a gleam in her mother’s eyes, I published the “Candy Ass Projections.” Those were a response to Winick’s post-draft calculations that always found his team the best, while declaring Alex Liberman’s team the worst. Alex didn’t like that, and since one of his pet phrases was “candy ass” (whatever that means), a responsive document was produced. The following year, Pippin arrived and Pippin’s Projections were born, soon followed by Pippin’s Nothing But a Dog commentary from Jeff/Shandler, et al.
As for this year’s version, I’m calling the Calamari the favorite based on the quaint idea that Jim’s roster has the best players. Of course, one never knows what a Wieters, a Wood, or a temporarily-insane Mark Blocker will do to the dynamic of a pennant race. So it should be a fun season!
The best way to reach me is going to be by email.
I’m currently in Tel Aviv and will be heading to Jerusalem shortly.
Israel is eight hours ahead of Chicago.
Brad has glass stones?
I go full cycle — from prospect, to suspect, to invisible. . .
It reads more like an exerpt from Cat in the Hat.
You made this mess, you need to clean it up. I doubt that Mark Blocker or anyone else is in a position to list what they think your roster looks like now — or any other roster where the owner has engaged in your drunken offf-season trade orgy.
A bag of Doritos and a case of beer.
I think we need to arrange an intervention to help Brad out.
P.S. I remain very intrigued by Elijah Dukes.
What a great collection of “name” guys.August 1, 2006 at 5:30 pm in reply to: DUMP Update – Elijah Dukes It Out for the Last Time #2594
Enough already. I don’t negotiate in public but I’ll make an exception in this case:
BUDDHA: show us your compassion as well as your conservatism. Here’s your chance to acquire Delmon’s team/cellmate, a $5 stud by the name of Elijah Dukes, who you can have straight up for Mark Buehrle, who’s getting cuffed around as I type this. Offer good until Rich Robbins comes up with better deal for Dukes, who I know he truly covets. Dukes needs a good, supportive environment — he can be nurtured but I have too much to deal with right now. So, Buddha–adopt him, please.

I thought you had to be out of kindergarten before you were allowed to play professional baseball. Clearly, I was wrong.
How about a pool on how many years before Dukes is doing time?
No way. Jeff wants Elijah and is trying to diminish his significant DUMP market value.
I told Brad that Elijah was too much of a hot head. (I still love the
name though)June 15, 2006 at 5:48 pm in reply to: Sizemore Is Everything: Injury Rips Buns Off Red Hots #2812
What are you talking about?
You are sounding rather godfatheresque. Is a blood oath required? COPS sounds somewhat like the Omega house in Animal House. Would that make you Dean Wormer?
