Santa Lechuga Power League 2014

The Best Damn Fantasy Baseball League In the Universe!

Big Changes May Be Afoot For The 2015 Season

Before we close this whole 2014 thing down so that we can sit around and wait for more Hall-of-Famers to check into the great hotel in the sky, we wanted to let everyone know that big changes may be afoot for the 2015 season. We can’t reveal too much at this time -- the front office staff is trying desperately to find Commissioner Rube Furrow after he was last seen lighting a mattress on fire during the Giants celebrations -- but we need to let it be known that the braintrust/nitwits at SLPL may just be making some of the most monumentous changes the league has seen since it introduced the designated hitter and stopped serving Cracker Jack at all our stadiums and started serving Kale-On-A-Stick. Unfortunately, too few appreciated our rework of the “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” lyrics. Personally, we’ve always been partial to the line, “...buy me some peanuts and kale-on-a-stick | I don’t care if our manager’s a real ... ”

Should we make the proposed changes, traditionalists will be outraged. Don’t let that worry you; traditionalists are outraged every time another minute passes, as though that minute 30 years ago was somehow better than the minute they are currently living. Anyway, we think that true fans of the game will appreciate the changes, should they be made.

With that bit of crypticness, we hope you all have a grand offseason. We’ll see you in 2015. Oh, and
don’t forget to pay for your fees and trades! We need to reward our 2014 champs!

Jim Cummings Cup (Finally) Awarded to Kevin Klinkhamer; Final 2014 Champs and Money Winners Announced

MLB World Series 1

Longtime league owner Kevin Klinkhamer of Dongwhipped was re-crowned the SLPL Overall Champion Wednesday night after the San Francisco Giants (a.k.a., Madison Bamgarner and His Various and Sundry Coworkers) won a fun 7th game of a fun World Series. Unlike last year’s champaign-soaked celebrations, though, Kevin this year celebrated quietly in his living room as Santa Lechuga executives stood in front of national TV cameras wondering where the hell he was. “I didn’t want to get too crazy,” Kevin said. “It was sort of an uneventful post-season from an SLPL standpoint and I knew I was in control of the overall title for the past week.

“I was in this position last year, so you could say that I decided to go the ‘act-like-you've-been-there-before’ route,” Kevin said as he rocked in his Lazy Boy and watched Fox Sports coverage of SLPL Commissioner
Rube Furrow standing slack-jawed waiting to award Kevin the 2014 Jim Cummings Cup, which he was only able to do later in the evening once his GPS led him to Kevin’s house. “Rube’s a clod, maybe an even bigger clod than Bud Selig,” Kevin said, “and I really didn’t want to give him the satisfaction of rubbing shoulders in public with an owner as talented as me. Besides, he looked almost as sweaty as that Chevy dude who awarded Bumgarner the MVP.”

Kevin reflected on his back-to-back repeat championships, the first such feat in the 182-year-history of the Santa Lechuga Power League. “I never imagined I would win the Overall Championship two-foxtrotting-years in a row! I go into every season with the goal of being crowned Division and Pitching champ -- you know I take much pride in my stable of high powered arms, which is ironic because this year I failed to win the pitching crown but won the hitting championship in addition to repeating as overall champ.”

Kevin, in a make-shift family room press conference, continued. “Baseball is a weird sport, even in fantasy leagues. However, with the Giants third World Series title in five years, I just hope Rube finds himself sober enough in the next week to get my check out!” For winning this year’s Overall Championship, Kevin won $560
(updated after all the trades were re-counted). He didn’t, however, win a Chevy Colorado.

Despite his “act-like-you've-been-there-before” mantra, Kevin did decide to “pimp this mini-run out a bit.” “Until I lose this title, I hereby command that any team owner who sees me to only address me as 'Champ,’ ‘Reigning Overall Champ,’ ‘Repeat Overall Champ,’ ‘Back-to-Back Repeat Overall Champ,’ ‘I Kiss the Ground You Walk On Dude,’ or any variance of those. It's hard enough to just win your division in this league, so being a back-to-back repeat Overall Champ deserves some respect and recognition in person. Remember it owners, as you'll be reminded or ignored if you don't follow suit.”

Kevin did have some comforting words for his fellow SLPL owners, though. “Every baseball and SLPL owner should be in a good place right now. We don't have to hear Harold Reynolds speak for at least four months and, if he does come on MLB Network during the off-season you can just mute your TV. We don't have to suffer through baseball being run by Bud Selig anymore. And with
Oscar Taveras' death last week, I think there’s a chance we can resurrect the Creepy Cardinal Pitcher Death Pool and expand it to include an owner's choice of anyone on the full Cardinals roster now. And since he died after the Cardinals were eliminated, we don’t have to spend months and months watching the Cardinals parade his jersey around from dugout to dugout across the country while Fox Sports dedicates a single camera on it for entire games just in case someone superstitiously touches it before an at bat.”

“Yeah, I said it,” Kevin said. “While some will find my attitude toward the Cardinals insensitive, I don't care because it's my sense of humor. And, people, we’re talking about the Cardinals here!”

Kevin concluded, “Besides, we’re
all day-to-day living in this world. Today, though, I just happen to be $560 (updated after all the trades were re-counted) richer. Assuming, of course, Rube sobers up enough to send me my check.”

In addition to the Overall Championship,
Kevin won the Regular Season Championship, the Hitting Championship, and the Endive Division Championship. Rube eventually gave Kevin the Jim Cummings Cup -- named after our late, great owner, who passed away last season -- though there were no cameras present.

For coming in second place in both the Regular Season Standings and Overall Standings, Evil Kempire owner
Kyle Harmon also won $560 (updated afer all the trades were re-counted).

Cabbage Farmers owner
Paul Martin was crowned the Playoffs Champ and pulls $100 out of The Pot.

P.S. If you haven't paid your ownership and trade fees, get on it already! We need to cut some championship checks! (Check Who Owes What to see what you owe. And if you've already paid and we haven't noted it, please let us know.) Send your check to:

Joe Livernois

Salinas, CA 93907

If it's more convenient, you can pay your derelict debt using PayPal.

P.P.S. IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL WINNERS: Please respond with your preferred snail mail address so Rube can send your check. But before you do that, check the Who Owes What page to see if you actually owe monies even after winning. Some of you still owe money for ownership fees and trades ... some of you still owe monies from previous seasons, which we have noted on that page.

Sunday Morning WTF?! How Is This Even A Question?

MLB World Series 1

That’s more like it. Maybe this thing will go to seven games after all.

Meanwhile, Dongwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer sent us this link -- “Real Tweets from Real People – America wants Tim McCarver back!” -- with this head scratcher of a question: “Harold Reynolds or Tim McCarver, who ya got? (And remember, death is not an option.)” Later, Kevin posted this comment onThe Longoria and Winding Road owner Sue Klinkhamer’s Facebook wall, to which Sue agreed:

Reynolds_or_McCarver2

The reason I called Kevin’s question a head scratcher is because WHAT THE HOLY HELL ARE YOU PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT?!?! HOW IS THIS EVEN A QUESTION?!?! What, is the pain you are experiencing today making you nostalgic for yesterday’s pain? Listen to yourselves. Tim McCarver? Tim McCarver?! Really? We finally get a reprieve from Tim McCarver’s bloated, inane, downright stupid crappiness and suddenly you’re questioning whether or not he was really that bad because Harold Reynolds is meh?

Listen people, I’d rather not have to do this, but let’s just walk down memory lane, shall we?

Do you not remember this: “Tim McCarver: My Reason to Envy the Deaf”

How about this?

mccarver

Don’t forget this:This is an entry on a list about the worst announcers in sports. See, when you're making a list, you break it down into different categories and put spaces between the entries, so people can tell it's a list. Like this entry about Tim McCarver, Fox baseball analyst. McCarver analyzes baseball for Fox. And while he's analyzing baseball for the Fox network, he offers stunning behind-the-scenes insight, just like you're getting in this entry here. Which is part of a larger list.”

How about our 2011 World Series rants?

  • Hey, Tim McCarver: What the hell is a "thinking apparatus." And did you really just say that in reference to Mark McGwire, the single biggest box of rocks -- sans you, of course -- in MLB history?
  • Hey, Tim McCarver: Did you really just say "deep Freese, indeed"? Wouldn't that lame-ass phrase be better used for the guy when he's in a slump rather than when he's in the middle of ten-game playoff hitting streak?
  • Hey, Tim McCarver: The infrared camera reminds you of the remake of “The Thing”? What does that even mean?
  • Hey, Tim McCarver: For the record, Holliday's double was not the "first extra base hit" of the game. You know how I know? Because you made a big deal out of Beltre's double being the "first extra base hit" of the game when he did it a couple innings earlier. (Note to self: Check to see if he makes a big deal out of the "first extra base hit" in all remaining games.)
  • Via Sue Klinkhamer on Facebook: Hey, Tim McCarver: "Thanks...for teaching the audience the definition of 'pitching around a hitter.' Trust me, no one who is watching this World Series needs to be schooled in baseball basics. We are all experts in the 'field.'"
Or what about this 2009 dialog I had with Tim:
TIM MCCARVER: You don’t believe people get turned off when I’m being a vapid, drivel-spewing blowhard, do you Pedregoso?
ME: What?! Are you nuts?! People love to be condescended to.
TM: You’re not just saying that, are you?
ME: You don’t spend a lot of time in the rest of America, do you, Tim? There’s not a person in the United States that doesn’t enjoy it when you present the most elementary of baseball concepts as though you just discovered it. There’s no one that doesn’t appreciate it when you explicate some trivial, obvious point into ground like a 58-foot curve ball. By the way, everyone just loves it when you refer to the 50-something-foot curve ball every single time one is thrown. They love knowing exactly what to expect. They don’t want anything fresh and new and unique. Why do you think Joe Buck, whenever the count starts 0-2 and goes to 3-2, always makes a big deal about how the count just went from 0-2 to 3-2? Why do you think we show replays again and again and again? To show them what they already know to be true. To show them that what they saw the first time in real time with their own eyes is precisely what they already knew they saw. Geez, Timmy, if you talked to them like they had a brain, they would wonder if you even cared about them. You absolutely must continue being a vapid, drivel-spewing blowhard. You don’t want to lose middle America, do you Tim?

Now, just try to tell me that you think Harold “Vanilla” Reynolds will ever engender that level of vitriol? Whiskey Tango Everlasting Foxtrot, Kevin?! How can you even ask that question? W!? T!? actual F!?

WAIT!!! Ohhhhhhhhh! That’s why you want McCarver back, so we can continue to flay him alive with our own rants and vitriol? Now we get it.

The World Series Is Nearly Here ... And We're Going Dark

MLB World Series 1

So the World Series is nearly here -- it begins tomorrow -- and we here at the Santa Lechuga Power League are going dark until Thursday morning. Sorry about that, folks. But it won’t be too difficult to keep track of the standings while we’re away; Dongwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer will likely still be in 1st place in the Overall Standings and Cabbage Farmers owner Paul Martin will likely still be in 1st place in the Playoffs Standings. It’s not a sure thing. Just very likely.

It’s also worth remembering that points-to-be-earned change during the World Series. Here’s how things are scored:

  • Hitters earn 100 points for every home run hit
  • Hitters lose 10 points for every K
  • Pitchers earn 10 points for every K
  • Pitchers lose 50 points for every homer surrendered
Good luck to everyone with players on their rosters who are in the World Series.

We’ll see you Thursday.

Sunday Morning WTF?! I Need To Know What Is Happening

So the World Series is kind of a thing. Know how I know? They have a whole page on Wikipedia dedicated to it! Seriously. You can read it yourself here. (Never mind that they also have a page dedicated to the sickle-billed vanga, which is easily the most euphemistically-laden-named bird of all birds next to, perhaps, the screamer ... or maybe the swallow.) And evidently there’s some version of the World Series happening this season, as it apparently does every season, this time with the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals playing each other. So, hey, that will be fun for baseball fans.

Sunday Morning WTF?! Unintentional Darkness

Sunday Morning WTF?! ?! to us, for going unintentionally dark yesterday. We didn’t mean to do it. (Thus, the whole unintentional thing.) With just a little over two weeks left in the season, here we are forgetting to update the blog. Maybe we updated the playoffs stats and standings, sure, but we didn’t update this here blog thingy, which is sort of a visual queue to our followers that we have actually updated the stats and standings. So, sorry. Our bad. We didn’t mean to. We will try to be more thoughtful in the future.

Meanwhile, don’t look now but Cabbage Farmers owner Paul Martin is in 10th place overall. He ended the Regular Season in 19th place. We don’t expect that he’ll be able to make up enough ground to catch Donwhipped owner Kevin Klinkhamer, but he’s the horse to watch just to see how many other horses he’ll pass.

Anyway, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, us?!?! Two weeks to go in the season and you can’t even remember to do post a blog entrty?! W!? T!? actual F!?

On To The League Championship Serieseses

MLB Poastseason

With the Dodgers crumbling like Roquefort cheese and the Nats failing to catch any breaks in their tight Division Series, it’s on to the League Championship Serieseses.

Meanwhile, here in the Santa Lechuga Power League, it doesn’t look like anyone is going to be able to take the top spot from Regular Season champ, Kevin Klinkhamer, owner of Dongwhipped. He ended the Regular Season with a comfortable 216 point lead and has now extended that lead to 224 points. Meanwhile, no one in the pack appears to be making any significant headway in catching up to him. Of the four teams ahead of him in the Playoffs Standings, only Cabbage Farmers owner Paul Martin has gained more than 50 points on Kevin during the postseason, though Paul still needs to gain 475 more points to catch up to Kevin. The odds seem to be in Kevin’s favor.

Then again, I could be all wet in this assessment since the chance to earn points goes up during the next two rounds of the playoffs. During the League Championship Series:
. Hitters earn 50 points for every home run hit
. Hitters lose 5 points for every K
. Pitchers earn 5 points for every K
. Pitchers lose 25 points for every homer surrendered

Check out playoff player stats here and here to get a look at hitters and pitchers still active in the playoffs. Check out team stats here to see which teams have which players.

Good luck the rest of the way.

That's Why They Play The Games

MLB Poastseason

In response to our post yesterday noting how little we know about baseball, Commissioner Rube Furrow shared this comment:

“Yeah, well, that's why they play the games. Baseball might be the only sport with postseasons that will ALWAYS surprise the fans. There was no way Baltimore should have swept Detroit, no way KC should have swept the Angels. And the Giants have no business being in the postseason at all, yet they could sweep the Nats today. My favorite time of year.”

Though the Giants didn’t sweep the Nats, famed Giants fan Rube also shared the following via e-mail hours before yesterday’s game:

“I was going to wait until after today's Giants game to send this, but I'll likely spend most of the afternoon with my head in a barf basket, and the particles of my brain will dissipate over a dry tundra until I'm standing in a busy intersection blowing snot rockets at demon imps wearing ‘Nats’ uniforms who are chanting the name ‘Heinie Manush’ in tribute to the late great Senator outfielder until the 24th inning, when Joaquin Arias hits the most memorable home run in Giants history.

“And by then I'll have forgotten to send you this link.

“Anyway, here it is, ESPN's experts before the postseason started. (Hint: Assuming the plucky but improbable Joaquin Arias comes through, the experts have been mathematically eliminated, and if the Cards happen to get past the Dodgers, they will have been completely skunked):”

One Game Seventh Game

MLB Wildcard AL

I wasn’t a fan of the Wild Card last season, especially since it was my Cleveland Indians who were getting eliminated from the playoffs after only a single game, but last night’s game may have swayed me. Holy, schmoly, what a game. It was like a dream 7th game but without those pesky six games leading up to it. That was awesome.

If you’re catching up after Monday’s off day, you should note that our website is all up-to-date and fully-operable for the playoffs.
