Today at THTThings to watch while you wait for Jamie Moyer's "fastball" to cross home plate in tonight's game.
Get all of the projections for the players on your fantasy squad from a projection system (THT's projections, CHONE, Marcel—your choice) in a spreadsheet, calculate the projected totals for your team in each stat category, and then compare your team's results to the other team's results in your league.
Um, Paul? That would entail about 400% of the work that went into me drafting these bozos to begin with. Can't I just stand pat with "I'm happy with my draft" until the wheels fall off, followed by four months of complaining about guys on my team as I watch Sportscenter? Such a strategy has always worked in the past.
And speaking of Moyer, he gave up three runs over six innings to get the no-decision in an 18-inning game against the Astros two days before Jordan Schafer was born. Maybe they'll discuss that prior to facing each other today.

After my serious sabermetric analysis of your roster, I think it’s more appropriate to call your players clowns than bozos. Does that help?

At least clowns bring something to the table. I have DeWayne Wise on my Scoresheet team for some reason.

Are you watching the Braves game tonight, Craig? It’ll probably take longer than the 2:22 it took the other night due to Moyer’s weird leg kick and endless changeups.

Not unless it’s on national TV someplace. I hardly get any Braves’ games anymore now that they’re not on TBS. I suppose I’ll buy extra innings if and when I ever do this full time, but for now they’re kind of an Internet phenomenon for me.

And that was also Greg Maddux’ major league debut.

If you team is a bunch of clowns, will you play “Send In The Clowns” before you make each trade?
That might be the only time that song was ever appropriate for airplay.
