    Week 7 Thread

    Some interesting events last week. There are no undefeated teams left after the dust has settled. The Truth & the Squeaks defied logic and both got their first wins vs 5-0 teams. (Thank you Squeaks)

    Here is how things will shape up this week......

    Springfield Nuclear Powerplant (3-3) at Stubborn Jalapeņos (4-2)
    The Peppers try and get back on the horse this week (1 GB) while the Plant are still locked up with the Wood for second place in the Ruth. I predict the Plant will get the 3rd generator working sometime this week.

    The Ligers (1-5) at Guys with Wood (3-3)
    Is that a sliver in your paw? Ah, what a cute little kitty. The poor luck Ligers come limping into the House of Sticks to mostly look at the pictures of greatness hanging on the walls. A fantasy baseball game may actually get played this week too.

    NY Bombers (5-1) at Michigan Wolverines (5-1)
    The feature matchup of the week. The Bombers fresh off their first loss of the season will try to derail the Wolvies who have won 4 straight. Bombers look to increase their 2 game lead in the Ruth Division while the Wolvies are fighting a battle just to sit alone atop the Dimaggio Division. Game can be seen on ESPN Ocho.

    The Red Apples (0-6) at Naked Truth (1-5)
    On the other end of the spectrum the Futility Bowl takes place in Nudeville. Personally I like the Nudies in this one - mostly for their cheerleaders. Rumours are swirling about a Jeff Kent departure.

    Tugger's Sluggers (2-4) at Evil Empire (5-1)
    After a minor setback in Week 1 the Empire has ripped off 5 straight W's. Steve usually doesn't have this many wins until the All Star break. The Slugs are wondering what is wrong with their team that looks perfectly fine on paper. Peter Gammons reports that the Slugs are feverishly working the phones to bring in the solution.

    Doc's 1.21 Gigawatts (3-3) at New York Squeaks (1-5)
    It doesn't take long to go from Fantasy Kingpin to Fantasy Trashbin. The battle of the last 2 Champjons was supposed to look better than this. The only thing I can say nice about these 2 teams is that the Squeaks have a 1 game winning streak to their credit. I think these teams will spend more time comparing rings this week than they will spend actually playing ball. As I predicted last week the Squeaks will win again - Miko is a perfect (1-0) this year. Pepto Bismol's MAJOR UPSET OF THE WEEK!

    Rhode Kill (4-2) at Larrupin' Lou's (5-1)
    The Kill come into Louville with a 4 game winning streak but most impressive was last week's beating at the hands of undefeated Swingers. They look to make it 2 in a row against division leaders. The Lou's still have ink all over their hands from the latest edition of the Daily Snooze. They still have a comfortable 1 game cushion over the rival Marauders (who they have easily handled since 2004).

    Nomo Lookalikes Who Sell Pizza in the Pavilions (1-5) at Saxmania's Swingers (5-1)
    The team with the really long name heads overseas to play the Swingers. The Swingers are still reeling from a loss last week and expect them to put up a tough fight against a Nomo team that is sitting at the bottom of one of the toughest divisions in fantasy baseball.

    The Lumberjacks (3-3) at The 4 Horsemen (2-4)
    "L" is for lumber. "J" is for Jacks. Cinamminy sweet Apple Jacks......ahem.....sorry. The fourth place Horsemen entertain the 3rd place Jacks this week. Rumour has it that "THE MAN" will be crowned this week.

    Dave Robert's Marauders (4-2) at Boras's Holdouts (3-3)
    A lot at stake this week for both teams. The Shelton's need a win to stay with the pack in the Mantle division while the Marauders can stop the presses if they win and the Lou's lose. 9 starts for each team this week is good news for the Shelton's while it is horrible news for the Marauders whose starters have been terrible as of late. Maybe some of them can stay out of the negative numbers and actually post a double digit total this week!

    Well done, miko

    It's the dawn of a new day my friends. No longer is there shame to be Naked. No longer shall the Truth be viewed with contempt. No, the Bombers were the first of many who will not be able to handle the Truth. The ball has started to roll, and you will all fall before me!

    Apples, it's a good thing you're Red. It'll camaflauge the spanking I'm going to administer this week!

    4 games back with 17 to play. I like my odds

    I look forward to playing the Lou's this week. I've already knocked off two division leaders over the past 3 weeks. I'm about to add Lou to the Division Leader Kill list.

    I have more points for than every other team in my division but the Lous, and yet I'm in last. If I remember correctly, I'd have beaten all but 2 or 3 teams (including, obviously, the one I played) this past week. If only guys would quit DL-ing themselves after I've already set my roster (usually about mid-week...maybe I should change that)...

    I knew you couldn't have been talking about baseball, because your last season you led the league in not scoring points!

    Roger Clemens - SP - FA

    According to agent Randy Hendricks, Roger Clemens has "accelerated his workout program" as he prepares to make a decision on whether to pitch this season.
    ESPN's Jayson Stark believes a decision is somewhere between 10 and 21 days away. "He'll tell me the team, and then I'll make a deal in 24 hours," Hendricks said. If he chooses to return, Clemens is expected to receive $3 million-$4 million per month to pitch for the Astros, Yankees, Red Sox or Rangers. May. 17 - 4:31 pm et

    Now does this sound like a guy who is retiring? I don't think so. This sounds like the man that is going to save the Marauder franchise.

    Bill Hall - SS - Brewers

    With J.J. Hardy suffering an ankle injury on Tuesday, Bill Hall will be the Brewers' starting shortstop for the next few weeks.
    Hall has been excellent so far this season. His value will grows even more now that he has a starting position for the next few weeks. May. 17 - 10:37 am et

    Can his value get any higher? First he becomes a Marauder and now this great news? The man qualifies at every position except water boy. Hardy could be out as many as 6 weeks making the Marauder GM smile. Sweetness.

    Crap...

    Kyle Davies (strained groin) was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday due to an injury which might keep him out as long as two or three months, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. He will require surgery after a torn groin muscle was revealed in an MRI. (Updated 05/17/2006).
