Can the Tigers piss on themselves any more?
Thursday, October 26, 2006
Somehow a beat up and less talented St. Louis team is in the World Series. After starting the series as a big dog they're now up 2-1 and favored by the bookies.

The Mets are pond scum. Go Cards!

Cards Up 2-1
Man I love October baseball...especially when it's your team with the unlikely heroes. Of course both Mr. Suppan and Mr. Taguchi graced my champion fantasy baseball team this year so I knew they had it in them!
St. Louis has the momentum and a win tonight would be a crushing blow for New York. The past two years I've watched the Cardinals take 100 win teams, both with the best record in MLB, and come up short. This team is not as good as either of those teams, but it has the feel of destiny.
Season 1 Week 3 of Holdem Poker's Club Championship is today. OnGame will apparently be blocking US customers at some point.
Full Contact Poker has announced they will be switching networks.
The sleaze over at bwin (OnGame's owners) finally hit their out on 6th street with the much maligned OnGame Network Poker Classic. First, they reschedule since they can't get anywhere near the entries needed for this $5 Mil guaranteed event. They were staring at a $2 Mil overlay. Now due to the legislation they've changed it to a $100,000 added event.
There's a good history of bullshit on the official blog, but this part is the best.
This is to update you about changes to the Ongame Network Poker Classic poker tournament that have been made as a result of the new Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act in the United States.
As all Ongame Network operators will no longer be accepting new US players or new deposits from existing US players after Monday October 16, we have eliminated the guarantees for a $5M purse and a $1M first prize. We expected approximately 60% of ONPC participants to qualify or buy-in directly during the last three weeks of October – this is an established pattern for high buy-in tournaments. Now, even with the Qualifier Frenzy and numerous other global marketing initiatives, we will not achieve an acceptable level of participation.
We will proceed with the ONPC as a $100,000-Added event this year. Ongame Network will add $100K to the existing (and still growing) prize pool of almost $2,000,000. Payouts will be percentage-based, as per the bottom section “If total players > 1001” detailed at www.ongameclassic.com/details/payouts/
The ONPC will continue as planned with its innovative format of an Online Final on November 4, a pause when 45 players remain, and then a Live Final in Barcelona on December 2. Players will continue in Barcelona with the same chip stacks they had when the online tournament paused. Ongame Network will pay for the flights, hotel and VIP treatment for all 45 live finalists.
60% buy-in during the last week for a $5000 entry event? Do they think they are Stars or Party? They had no chance to hit the guarantee and didn't want to pay the overlay so they're taking advantage of the legislation. You stay classy OnGame.
They are at least letting US players cash out their enries instead of playing.
Event 3 of the Blogger Pour Tour has been announced and it is being hosted by the Ultimate Poker Forum.com Tournament Blog. I plan to be in Vegas next weekend so enjoy my blinds!

Stars Plays Ball
Dear PokerStars Player -
As you are probably aware, the United States Congress recently enacted the Safe Port Act which contains provisions relating to Internet gambling.
PokerStars has received extensive expert advice from within and outside the U.S. which concluded that these provisions do not alter the U.S. legal situation with respect to online poker. Furthermore it is important to emphasize that the Act does not in any way prohibit you from playing online poker.
Therefore, our business continues as before - open to players worldwide including the US. You may play on our site as you did prior to the Act.
PokerStars believes that poker is a game of skill enjoyed by millions of players and we remain committed to providing you a safe and fun environment in which to play. We value your loyalty to PokerStars, and look forward to continuing to serve you with the best online poker experience, as we have for the past five years, six billion hands, and 40 million tournaments.

Firepay OUT, Neteller and Stars??
In other news I'm currently 3rd in the Blogger Poker Tour Standings (thanks to the host bonus) and 12th in Holdem Poker's Club Holdem.
Be sure to check out The Battle of the Ages page. What a fun way to showcase some of online poker's best talent.
Poker.com ate my cashout. Time to email support!
In handicapping news I'm an incredible 11-2-1 the past three weeks. I won't claim any talent at this point yet though, mostly luck.

Announcer #1 – “Well folks you’re in for a real treat tonight on Sports Theatre!”
Announcer #2 – “That’s right! We’ve got a two of the most talented NFL actors portraying one of the hottest scripts in the country.”

And We're Off!
My starting table:
I haven't played much with the new poker.com interface, but I like it. We've got our first victim as OhioMike places in 72nd.
At the first break...
55 / 72 players remaining
I'm 44 / 55 and haven't been very active
Time to double up!
Got my double up with JJ in SB vs. button with AJ. Thanks Purechaos! Actually, pure made a fine button bet and my re-raise was not enough to get a fold.
Wow these blinds are fast...
out in 42nd as JJ in the SB runs into KK in the BB.
Congratulations to natsdad for winning Event #2!

Thursday, October 05, 2006
I'm not sure if it's the pending legislation or simply home conflicts, but I have played virtually no poker the last week. Tonight I change that a slight bit by playing three tournaments.
(1) The Bluff Poker Tour $11 event on Absolute Poker.
(2) The $30 RA - $90K Guaranteed on Paradise.
(3) The $20 RA - $25K Guaranteed on Pokerroom.
All of these events started at 9:00 EST. I'll post updates at the first break.

A Fantasy Baseball Draft Gone Right
April 4th 2006 The Cat and I sat down for another FBB draft. Like the previous year we played in 12-man 5X5 NL only pay league on ESPN. We selected a league that fit our draft schedule and did not know any of the other 11 players.
If you’re not familiar with 5X5 here’s a quick explanation. If you know all of this just jump down to the draft.
5 X 5
· Composite Average (AVG)
· Total Runs
· Total Home Runs (HR)
· Total Runs Batted In (RBI)
· Total SB
· Total Wins (W)
· Total Saves (SV)
· Total Strikeouts (SO)
· Composite Earned Run Average (ERA)
· Composite Ratio (WHIP)
The team's statistics are generated only by players on the team's active roster. Players on the bench and National League pitchers' hitting statistics do not contribute towards team statistics. The list below gives a brief description for each category:
ERA -- Earned-Run Average
A measure of the efficiency of a pitcher by multiplying earned runs allowed by nine, then dividing by that pitcher's innings pitched.
Earned Runs x 9 / Innings Pitched
WHIP -- Ratio
The "WHIP" ratio stands for "Walks, Hits, Innings Pitched." This ratio determines the average number of hits and walks allowed per inning by any given pitcher.
Walks + Hits / Innings Pitched
In rotisserie scoring leagues, team totals are ranked from best to worst in each of the statistical categories, and points are awarded for each place based on the season-to-date cumulative totals. For example, the first-place team in a category receives 10 points, the second-place team nine, and so on until the last place team with one point. In the case of a tie, both teams will be given the average of the number of points due the position - e.g., two teams tied for first in a category would each be given 9.5 points for that category, with the next team given 8. The same algorithm holds for ties between more than two teams.
Categories with averages
Categories that are expressed as averages (e.g. AVG or ERA) will only be displayed to two or three decimal places, but for scoring purposes will be compared to as many decimal places necessary. Thus, two teams displayed as having the same average in a category will be awarded different point values unless the ratios are exactly the same. Raw totals are available on the Box Score pages.
Starting pitchers games limits and innings pitched minimums
The games-started limit is 180 games for full-season teams , an average of one start per day of the season. Teams drafting after the start of the season will have a games-started limit on a prorated basis. A team will not accumulate statistics for starting pitchers following the day during which its games started limit is reached. Therefore, it is possible that a team may slightly exceed the 180-game maximum. For example, an owner may have 179 games started near the end of the season. If they then start 5 pitchers in a single day, their games-started total will be 184. Having now reached the maximum (180), the team will no longer be credited with any additional stats for any subsequent day.
GAMES STARTED LIMITS FOR STARTING PITCHERS
Maximum Games Started Per Season
Maximum Games Started Per Midseason
Relief pitchers' statistics are not affected by the games-started limit. If a pitcher who is traditionally a starter appears in relief, it is considered a relief appearance, and is not restricted by the games-started limit.
In addition, pitchers for full-season teams must have accumulated a minimum of 800 innings (400 innings for midseason teams) pitched by the end of the FLB season. We maintain this minimum to counter the strategy of merely using relief pitchers in an attempt to dominate the saves, ERA, and WHIP pitching categories.
BATTING - 13 PLAYERS
PITCHING -- 9 PLAYERS
· 1-First Baseman (1B)
· 1-Second Baseman (2B)
· 1-Shortstop (SS)
· 1-Third Baseman (3B)
· 1-Catcher (C)
· 5-Outfielders (OF)
· 1-Middle Infielder (2B/SS)
· 1-Corner Infielder (1B/3B)
· 1-Utility Player (UTIL)
· 9-Pitchers -- any combination
Each team has three bench slots which can hold any combination of batters and pitchers. Statistics generated by players on a team's bench do not get applied to the team's combined total statistics.
Here’s a link to the final player rater list if you want a reference point.
Round #1 – Overall Selection #3
We log on and find ourselves in the horrible 3rd draft position. Pujols and Lee will already be gone and we’re debating between Wright, Bay or taking a flyer on Beltran. We finally settle on Beltran.
Beltran finished the season ranked 11th and was much higher before taking September off. Wright finished in 20th and Bay in 22nd. They both would have been decent picks.
Obviously Reyes, Howard, or Soriano would have been better hitters, but no way you take them 3rd. We were set on taking a hitter so Carpenter or Oswalt were both out.
Round #2 – Overall Selection #22
Jimmy Rollins – ranked 19th
We wanted a steals, runs, avg guy and Rollins was the best on the board. Hanley Ramirez would have been better, but good luck calling that. Holliday, Berkman, and Smoltz all were better picks overall too.
Round #3 – Overall Selection #27
Andy Pettitte – ranked 53rd
Not a complete bust. Smoltz, Webb, Arroyo, Harang were all still there.
Round #4 – Overall Selection #46
Matt Holiday – ranked 8th
We got lucky with a steal here.
Round #5 – Overall Selection #51
Tim Hudson – ranked 102nd
Horrible pick period.
Round #6 – Overall Selection #70
Armando Benitez – ranked 184
This pick looks worse than it was. There were very few legitimate closers left at this point.
Round #7 – Overall Selection #75
Aaron Rowand – ranked 179
Great potential if he would stop hitting walls and other players. Rowand missed way too many games.
Round #8 – Overall Selection #94
Garrett Atkins – ranked 18th
AVG .329 | HR 29 | RBI 120 | OBP .409 | SLG .556 Jesus!
Round #9 – Overall Selection #99
Round #10 – Overall Selection #118
Jeff Suppan– ranked 107th
Jeff had a horrible first half and was one of the best post All-Star Game.
Round #11 – Overall Selection #123
Joe Borowski– ranked 80th
Joe ended up being key to us getting 11 points in saves.
Round #12 – Overall Selection #142
Jose Vidro – ranked 200th +
A decent pick if Vidro stayed healthy. Of course, that is always his problem.
Round #13 – Overall Selection #147
Scott Linebrick– ranked 138th
It’s not worth going any further as the pickings get too slim and we don’t have any really late steals. As you can see 3 of our first 4 picks were great and we got a very lucky steal with Atkins at pick #94. Those 4 guys gave us 4 players in the top 19. That’s pretty damn good in a 12-player league.
We also had several key free agent pickups.
Takashi Saito - ranked 27th
REC 6-2 | SV 24 | ERA 2.07 | WHIP .91
Adam Wainwright - 177th
REC 2-1 | SV 3 | ERA 3.12 | WHIP 1.15
Chris Duncan - 155th
AVG .293 | HR 22 | RBI 43 | OBP .363 | SLG .589
That’s it for the regular season. Go Cardinals!
