Of course, Lidge potentially being out much longer than originally plans screws me in the saves category - can't make the switch to Contreras because you can only make one switch...

And on the steals, since the Cubs don't seem to have a steal yet, I suppose you can put someone else in there - but it really should count as your switch for the position.

While we think about discussing, I'm gonna go ahead and get my first cut at player picks up now in case I forget by the weekend. Utley being injured with no good timetable for a return makes this more interesting.

HR - Howard
Avg - Polanco
RBI - Ibanez
SB - Victorino

W - Lee
S - Lidge
ERA - Halladay
K - Hamels
HR - Pena
Avg - Castro
RBI - Ramirez
SB - ???? damn this year's team is slower than lasts 

W - Garza
S - Marmol
ERA - Dempster
K - Zambrano
Heh - so SB will be Victorino vs. nobody?  I think that's a point for me!
unfortunately, I couldn't find a single person that would even come close to victorino let alone one that would even hit double digits.  I think the team as a whole had 50 last season.

I'm not putting anyone in...i am just going to concede the point in that category.

Nice, so I think we're basically starting at 1-1 in conceded points unless Lidge gets back really quickly or Marmol dies.

I'll do an initial update later today - Phillies are up 3 in the real standings, so you are up 7.5 in the bet currently. If I do updates roughly every 2 weeks, do you think you'll ever be in a better position than that for an update?

nope

So, how long until the first time I take the lead in the main bet?

bump

Phillies now 10 games ahead of the Cubs, so if they win and the Cubs lose today, I take the lead in the main bet for the first time.

You can send me the money at any time, bret.

UGH

Next year, you should just give me $25 in April and save yourself some money and both of us the trouble of going through this ritual.
6/10/2011 12:37 PM
heh, c'mon you should know me better than that.
6/10/2011 12:45 PM

Yeah.

Pluswise, I clearly forum-jinxed the season series portion of the bet by posting that taunt yesterday.

6/10/2011 3:26 PM
blame it on the rain

Updated.

Stupid forum jinx.  I was that close to clinching the season series bet before they even playing in Chicago!

Updated.

I am going to switch Utley into RBI for Ibanez.  Utley currently has 16 RBI, Ibanez had 32 as of the switch.
