Is entry into DUMP forbidden if a member of COPS? If not, I’d like my application reviewed asap.
Hmm. Gotta think about that. COPS has taken on a decidedly nasty, anti-Brad Lee tone lately. DUMP is all about worshipping at the feet of our iconic leader, Brad Lee. I suppose if you were to promise that you wouldn’t participate in that nonsense, your application would receive serious consideration.
Also for clarification, Joey Gathright was NOT a centerpiece of the deal last year- without remembering vivid details, I believe Curtis Granderson and Jorge Cantu were involved in that transaction as well…..?
Of course – but now you’re speaking about your perspective. I was speaking only about PT/KR’s perspective. I only wish I had saved a copy of the famous “Monster-Talent” email. If I could reprint certain passages, you would more clearly understand my point.
Can I join DUMP?

RE: COPS; Motion to Revoke Membership of Mark Blocker
Congratulations on insulting my good friend Mark Blocker and me in the same paragraph. That must be a first.
With respect to your diatribe against Mr. Blocker you have no standing in COPS either to (i) ask to bar Mr. Blocker’s membership or (ii) demand revocation of his privileges. Please note that this decision in no way addresses the merits of your remarks concerning Denard Span.
As to your allegation that Mr. Blocker’s objective and fairly mild commentary about his player “would even embarrass” me, I don’t deny and cannot hide my hurt that you caused me. But you know what, Jeff? To compare a brilliant strategist and roto tactician such as Mark Blocker to someone like me just brings a smile to my face and the glisten of a tear to my right eye, actually caused by some eyedrops received during a normal eye exam tonight. But don’t worry, Jeff. My eyes are fine and I see things clearly. You don’t respect me, you never have, and now the entire League can see your hostility in black and white. Well, tonight I’m filling out my membership application to COPS–and guess what? It ain’t you I’m listing as my emergency contact.
Speaking of players not to be found on Emily’s former team (the league historian and resident law school dean can explain), I understand that the drunk woman driving Sauerback’s car who was found hiding in the bushes with the Indians pitcher was not his wife. Scandalous. Simply scandalous. Rhonda does not approve.
C’mon Brad — you’ve come up with so many ways to win this thing, I think you need to show us what you can do without a roster. Anyone could win with a roster (well — not me) but you know what I mean.
Buddha not only continues to vote no but he strongly objects to Mr Jensen’s first point that he owns the cheapest parcel of land in Deerfield. I have that baby locked up and am squatting on it right now. Good to see another voice from the right coming forward however.
Damn, Brad, you’re sucking up to Buddha and you don’t even know him yet! Anyway, I’m giving my proxy to Buddha. He came into the league to replace the Riptorns and we refused to let him assume the roster. It doesn’t seem fair to him that the Riptorns return and get a roster. So if Buddha votes no, that remains my vote. Beyond that, Brad, I can’t wait to see you on Draft Day and find out what tricks are up your sleeve. Welcome back!!
The AP story noted that Giambi originally started feeling ill a couple of
weeks ago when he caught a stomach virus from teammate Gary Sheffield. Can
someone explain to me what's been going on between those two?
I think Yogi.
In today’s broadcast Ron also said “The White Sox lead the league in runs scored, so you have to be careful because they can score a lot of runs.”
