Today's slate.

The Big Hurst - Mike Minor

skoormit - No pick

La Osa Rosa - Sonny Gray

The Big Hurst: The slate shows Mike Pelfrey pitching against Mike Pelfrey in Texas, but that can't be right.  Can it?  Is it like Bugs Bunny?


La Osa Rosa: I think I've gotten points from Sonny Gray every time I've picked him.


August 30th, 2013

Today's slate.

The Big Hurst - Yu Darvish

skoormit - Jose Fernandez

La Osa Rosa - Ervin Santana

The Big Hurst: Will or would skoormit want Fernandez or Teheran?
La Osa Rosa: Bartolo Colon: Fat, forty, and not fabulous.  I’ll pick Ervin Santana today.


The Big Hurst: Three little piggies; All in a row; Oink, oink, oink; Down we all go.


August 29th, 2013

Today's slate.

The Big Hurst - Max Scherzer

skoormit - Gio Gonzalez

La Osa Rosa - Bartolo Colon

The Big Hurst: Today's slate feels like a minefield, especially since I'm still recovering from yesterday's bruises.
La Osa Rosa: I’m too scared to pick a pitcher today.
The Big Hurst: Me too!
La Osa Rosa: I’ll pick Bartolo Colon. With hesitation.
The Big Hurst: Also with great hesitation, Max Scherzer.


The Big Hurst: Marliner exploiter.


August 28th, 2013

Today's slate.

The Big Hurst - Adam Wainwright

skoormit - Stephen Strasburg

La Osa Rosa - Felix Hernandez

The Big Hurst: Is anyone else rooting hard for the A's to overtake the Rangers?  Meanwhile, Danny Duffy versus Andrew Albers!  OooooOOOoooh!
The Big Hurst: King Felix or Prince Wainwright?  King Felix, or Prince Wainwright? It's so close.
The Big Hurst: Did I say I couldn't decide between Hernandez or Wainwright?  I really meant Fernandez and ... um ... Maintight ... or something.  Yowtch.
skoormit: I smell a blarf.


The Big Hurst:  Actually, a "Double Blarf"!  Actually actually, it's sort of a double "Double Blarf".  Rosa and I both blarfed.  And then I'm on the record as recommending both blarfers.  (I would've been better off with Danny Duffy.)  It's sort of the gloatiest and best possible scenario for skoormit, except for the decisive rain delay for Washington.  So it really seems like it's fairly rotten all around.  August 28: A date that will live in infamy.  Ugh.
La Osa Rosa: If you added both pitchers together, it would still be a Blarf.


August 27th, 2013

Today's slate.

The Big Hurst - Clayton Kershaw

skoormit - Justin Verlander

La Osa Rosa - Hisashi Iwakuma

The Big Hurst: Imma tryinna win this thing, mmmkay?
La Osa Rosa: Skoormit is going with the BUM. Hopes he disappoints you. I’ll pick Hisashi Iwakuma. How come all Toronto’s pitchers only have initials as names? R. A. Dickey and now J. A. Happ?
skoormit: I. O. Know.
The Big Hurst: Those Canadians, A.?


The Big Hurst: The Mets just traded Marlon Byrd hours before Marlon Byrd T-shirt night?  That's classic.  Verlander's reaction in the first inning.
