How We’ve Been Found: April 1st to April 7th

What’s The Point: This is an installment of our “How We’ve Been Found” series, which will appear approximately every Wednesday. The point of this is to give you a bit of information about how we’re doing statistically, and how people (including you, of course,) have been getting to our blog.

A few quick notes: People, David Wright is not really all that cute … I’d love to know what an “amoral sentence” is, or why someone would spell “amoral” with two m’s … I watched the Phillies ring ceremony today, and they showed some clips of the players talking about what the championship meant to them, and damn does Chase Utley look good in a suit … My fantasy teams are doing surprisingly un-badly … Trevor Bauer is still the best pitcher at UCLA, while Yankees’ first-rounder Gerrit Cole has posted an ERA over 4 despite recording lots of K’s. Bauer’s K/9 stands at almost exactly 9. Cole needs to ease off the strike zone.

I just want to see how wrong I’ll be.

Actual predictions and pretty pictures are after the jump. (I do have AL predictions, I just don’t like their logo.)

Opening Day Liveblog: Braves at Phillies

Click here to view it. Coverage starts at 8 Eastern … a.k.a. RIGHT NOW.

IT IS OPENING NIGHT AND I AM SO FRIGGIN’ PUMPED, MAN.

Your starting pitchers will be:

  • For the Phillies, Brett Myers. He’s making his 3rd consecutive opening day start and is 4-8 with a 4.60 ERA in his career against the Braves.

  • For the Braves, Derek Lowe. I don’t know about his Opening Day numbers, but I do know that he’s 4-1 with a 3.02 ERA in his career against the Phillies.

Chase Utley doesn’t care what you think, he’s healthy and he’ll be playing today. Jayson Werth will also be playing — he’s the only Phillie or Brave on my Europa Eccentrics.

Our next post may be about Barry Zito’s ex-girlfriends, considering the high level of demand …. If anyone knows how to find information for specific search dates beyond the past 7 days, shoot me an email and I’ll love you forever …. Who else wishes that Chase Utley would keep on rockin’ the high socks during the regular season? …. Are any of you still reading this?

Introducing: Your 2009 Europa Eccentrics

I have to warn you all that this is my first year running a fantasy team, so I might fail epically… but I’m pretty sure I’ll have fun. I’m in a Yahoo! public league, roto 5×5 (BA, RBI, RS, SB, HR, W, K, ERA, SV, WHIP), with 11 other teams. It was an autopick draft, and I had my priorities a little bit messed up — but without further ado, I present: Your 2009 Europa Eccentrics (with their 2008 stats in italics)!

Hitters:

  • C: Joe Mauer .328 BA, 9 HR, 85 RBI, 98 RS, 1 SB

I literally have nothing bad to say about this guy.

Team USA Roster Rundown!

Catcher:

  • Brian McCann. I know the dude’s on the Braves, but he can hit. I don’t know if he can catch, but he can certainly hit. He posted a .301/.373/.523 line in ’08, good for his second Silver Slugger award and his third consecutive All-Star selection. Ian Kinsler and Hanley Ramirez round out his ‘Similar Batters’ list on B-R, and Yogi Berra shows up on the ‘Similar Batters through Age 24’. Not bad, eh?
  • A.J. Pierzynski. Love the name, hate the player. Well, not ‘hate’ per se, but he’s awfully annoying (and I don’t even care about the White Sox). He should be the primary backup, if there is such a thing.

First Base:

  • Kevin Youkilis. I really can’t stand this guy and his batting stance, but he’s a good enough player. If he goes into a slump, then there’s always Mr. Playoff Miracle himself…
  • Evan “E-Lo” Longoria. It might seem slightly weird to see him playing first base, but he can’t do too much damage there. I mean, if Ryan Howard and Prince Fielder can “field” this position without causing irreparable damage to the psyche of everyone around them, then I’m sure that the reasonably smart and extremely athletic Longoria can manage just fine. Plus, he’s got as close to a porn star name as you’ll find on this roster, and some people think that’s hot. Don’t worry, I won’t judge you.

Second Base:

  • Dustin Pedroia. The really awesome tiny guy who swings from his heels and is good at everything will find a way to make the opposing pitchers uncertain about their depth perception.
See? He's just so small-looking.

See? He's just so small-looking.
