Aloha, Viejo

Sorry that it's been so long since we updated the blog. We have updated the standings and stats here and there, but the blog has been left untouched for too long. Again, apologies.

This being the Santa Lechuga Power League, we need to give a nod on the blog to someone who had a huge impact on the lives of the Family Livernois. Roger Earl Bartindale — who our commissioner Rube Furrow once bestowed the title "The Family Antagonist" — died yesterday after over 103 impressive years on this earth. We will be forever grateful to Viejo for all the things he did for us over these many, many years, the most important of which may have been giving us dozens and dozens of legendary, over-the-top, you-can't-make-this-stuff-up stories that will live in our memories until it's our turn to check out. Aloha, Roger.

No, It Really Hasn't Gotten Out of Hand

Tip of the ballcap to Maddog's Maulers owner Mike Skoien for sending us this link with the comment "I don't know, I think this league kind of digs this trend!" Indeed we do, Mike. Indeed we do.

We Are Going Semi-Dark

The last of his Livernois generation is graduating from high school, which means the rest of us are headed to Chico, CA, to convene to celebrate, which means we're going semi-dark through next Tuesday so that we can celebrate Brandt Livernois' high school graduation. You know. It's a thing. These celebrations.

What does semi-dark mean? It means that we can't update this here blog but we can update the stats and standings, as long as we have a trusty WiFi connection. So, check back here to check the stats and standings. When we get back, we might post a picture of Brandt in his Dogs Playing Poker shirt, which he will have earned because he graduated.

Advertently This Time

Going dark again. Heading to Denver for a few days, though we may be able to update stats and standings while there. Will try to get things fully up and running again on Saturday morning.

Sorry About That, Chief

We went inadvertently dark … a few days before we may have to go dark again for several days. We always seem to catch up, though, so don't fret too much.

We enjoy this immensely. And we've been to bullfights. Maybe because we've been to bullfights.

We Are Going Dark

We've been called to Los Angeles for work, so we have to go dark for a few days (though, there's a slight chance we'll be able to do stats and standings, even if we can't update the blog). Things should be back to normal around here on Thursday morning. In the meantime, make any trades as necessary by clicking here and we will get everything sorted out when we return.

Sunday Morning WTH?! Hey, All You Mothers Out There!

In this Sunday Morning Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, we tame our default proclivities …

As we have in seasons past, we have decided to be respectful to all the mothers in this league for at least one day of the season by renaming our regular Sunday series “Sunday Morning WTF?!” in honor of Mother’s Day to “Sunday Morning WTH?!?!” As in, “What the heck?!” or, “Whiskey Tango Hotel?” Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there!

We have also decided to revive a league favorite, which Scoot Bigs owner Scott Allen shared with us way back in ’11. Scott said that it is a tradition in his country of origin to celebrate Mother’s Day by dancing around a scooter. We didn’t believe him until we dug up this video on the Interwebs. (BTW, Scoot’s the one wearing jorts.)

The kind of stupid thing I would have tried as a teenager. Except, I wouldn't have been successful.

What A Wonderful Idea

Tip of the ballcap to Maddog's Maulers owner Mike Skoien for sending us this link with the comment "More home runs and strikeouts! Somebody should create a fantasy league around that model!!" Good sir, I believe you might be onto something there. Let's throw a committee at the idea.

That's Sierraload, Good Sir

Tip of the ballcap to Maddog's Maulers owner Mike Skoien for sending us this link (which may be behind a paywall) and saying "Article from Friday's Washington Post has important information for SLPL owners: 1) MLB players are hitting a ****load of homers at a record pace, 2) Do not own a pitcher from the Baltimore Orioles, and of course 3) The ball is "juiced," or, according to this article it has a lower drag coefficient making it fly farther ... duh!

Delightfully Peeved

Ochre Stockings owner Ray Brennan recently traded for Yan Moncada of the White Sox while dropping Daniel Palka of the said same Sox. Ray's commentary, which is always delightfully peeved: "Here's my latest crafty adjustment to my Ochre Stockings roster, AKA Total Current and Future Entire Major League Perpetually Disabled or Grossly Underachieving List. Moncada's another sentimental choice from my favorite team. I hope he's better than my last sentimental choice, Palka, who went 0-for-32 and had 0 (ZERO) homers, tho he may get a few now that he's back in Triple A. Oh yeah, he's my second trade in this go-round, Salud!"
