I feel like this has been played out a million times. The last place finisher of a fantasy league has to wear a sign around their neck in public stating they suck at fantasy football. I’ll admit, these were kinda funny at first. Over the years it’s become so played out and overdone that I’ve grown to hate stories like this. Today I realized there’s only one thing worse than the unoriginal people that still make these bets: Jefe it’s the people that act like it’s some groundbreaking, hilarious punishment.

Adam Duvall, Matt Harvey, Billy Hamilton, Scooter Gennett, Raisel Inglesias. All names we heard as possible trading chips as the Reds put the finishing touches on their rebuild. Well, Adam Duvall wasn’t the most likely player to be dealt, but he was the first.
MLBTradeRumors.com – There’s a “strong possibility” that righty Johnny Cueto will require Tommy John surgery, Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters today, including Kerry Crowley of the Bay Area News Group (via Twitter). Cueto was placed on the disabled list earlier this evening.
Though clearly a final decision has yet to be made, it’s obviously poor news for a Giants organization that surely hoped for quite a bit more from the veteran starter.
Terrible news out of San Francisco today, where Bruce Bochy said it was a strong possibility that Johnny Cueto would require Tommy John surgery. I remember Cueto’s MLB debut like it was yesterday, striking out 10 Diamondbacks during an afternoon game at Great American Ball Park. The year was 2008 and I didn’t know what a true hangover felt like yet. Man, those were the days. Continue reading →
With the July 31st trade deadline looming, its very possible Saturday night was the last we’ll see of Matt Harvey in a Reds uniform*. To say the trade to bring Matt Harvey from New York was a success would be a major understatement. A lot of people scoffed at the idea and predicted he’d be unhappy in Cincinnati, leading to poor performance and clubhouse drama. In fact, the exact opposite has happened. By all accounts, Matt Harvey has been a valuable asset on and off the field. Other veterans on the team don’t want him to be traded, and that tells me all I need to know about Matt Harvey.

This week straws are under attack. I don’t even remember what was under attack last week, which says a lot about where we’re at in 2018. To be honest, StrawGate isn’t going to change my life much because I’m about as anti-straw as one can be. Continue reading →
I know it’s a bit of a stretch, but hang with me here. I don’t know about you but this is the first Sunday I’ve been excited for since the middle of the 2017 NFL season. With Tiger Woods in the mix at The Open and the cool, rainy weather, I’m getting some major football Sunday vibes. The Bengals, the other Tigers that have been torturing me for years with their promised success and subsequent failure, didn’t give us much to get excited for in the second half of the season. Plus my fantasy teams sucked and I had nothing to play for, but you don’t want to hear about that. Because of the familiar circumstances and since I’m bored without much going on in the sports world other than my Reds coming out flat in the second half, I’m treating The Open’s final round like a football Sunday. The chili’s on, I’m wearing sweatpants with a long sleeve t-shirt, the laptop’s open, and I don’t plan on leaving the couch until I scramble to throw away all of my empty Coke and Miller Lite cans when I hear the Football Night in America music start.
