Cliff Lee Has Been Awful...

Michael Kay and partner in stupidity Don LaGreca were talking about who are the top 3 pitchers in baseball. LaGreca brought up Cliff Lee but stated that he's been awful this year to which Michael Kay responded with...

"Awful, Absolutely Awful. One Year Wonder." Giant Forehead

Oh really Michael? Must we look simply at Wins and Losses to judge the effectiveness of a pitcher? Yes Cliff Lee is 1-5. That's bad. Yes he got off to a miserable start, giving up 7 and 4 runs respectively in his first two outings. But is it that tough to notice that in his past 5 outings Lee has pitched 37 innings and gave up just 7 runs? That equates to an ERA of 1.70 ERA. Well that's just absolutely AWFUL. He's certainly a 1 YEAR WONDER. He had two bad starts and his team ran up against the unbeatable Justin Verlander in his past two starts, dude obviously sucks.

Drops are Overrated...

"Who cares if Braylon Edwards drops passes? Drops are overrated." Cap'n Douche

Umm, I bet the quarterback and coach care. The fans probably care too. The punter probably cares cause when Braylon Edwards drops a first down catch on 3rd and 8 then he has to come on the field.

He furthered his moronity by saying who cares if Kobe Bryant misses 5 out of 10 shots you still want him on your team. Umm, .500 from the field is pretty damn good so that statement made no sense whatsoever.

He then said who cares if Soriano makes errors or if Manny can't play left field. Probably the pitcher I'm guessing. Maybe his infield coach.

Just cause you're good at one thing, doesn't mean it's OK to suck at other things.

You're Either A College Basketball Guy or an NBA Guy...

"You're Either A College Basketball Guy or an NBA Guy." Cap'n Douche

Yep no possible way you can like the NBA and College Basketball, no possible way.

I Would Never Draft a Quarterback...

"I would always get my quarterback through free agency. Granted I would miss out on the Peyton Manning's of the world but I would always get my quarterback through free agency." Cap'n Douche

Yes that's a solid choice Cap'n Douche. To see just how solid of a choice it is, let's look at who has lead their teams to the Super Bowl Title the past few seasons?

2008: Pittsburgh, Ben Roethlisburger, DRAFTED
2007: New York Giants, Eli Manning, DRAFTED
2006: Indianapolis Colts, Peyton Manning, DRAFTED
2005: Pittsburgh, Ben Roethlisburger, DRAFTED
2004: New England Patriots, Tom Brady, DRAFTED
2003: New England Patriots, Tom Brady, DRAFTED
2002: Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brad Johnson, Free Agent or Trade
2001: New England Patriots, Tom Brady, DRAFTED
2000: Baltimore Ravens, Trent Dilfer, Free Agent or Trade
1999: St. Louis Rams, Kurt Warner, Free Agent or Trade
1998: Denver Broncos, John Elway, DRAFTED
1997: Denver Broncos, John Elway, DRAFTED
1996: Green Bay Packers, Brett Favre, Free Agent or Trade
1995: Dallas Cowboys, Troy Aikman, DRAFTED
1994: San Francisco, Steve Young, Free Agent or Trade
1993: Dallas Cowboys, Troy Aikman, DRAFTED
1992: Dallas Cowboys, Troy Aikman, DRAFTED
1991: Washington Redskins, Mark Rypien, DRAFTED
1990: New York Giants, Jeff Hostetler, DRAFTED
1989: San Fransisco, Joe Montana, DRAFTED

The vast majority of Super Bowl winning QBs were garnered via the draft. Johnson and Dilfer won on the backs of their defenses. Favre and Young were acquired on the cheap after failed experiments at their previous stops and Kurt Warner was pulled out of Arena Football. No Super Bowl winner in the past 20 seasons has had a major free agent quarterback lead their team to the Super Bowl. But ya, if your team was run by Cowherd that's what you'd be looking for.

Well That Sounds Horrible...

"I Will Do a Show in My Underwear if Tyler Hansbrough ever scores 20 in an NBA game." Cap'n Douche

Even Nick Collison has scored over 20 points in multiple games. The great Nick Collison. He's similar in position, whiteness, all-americanness, title game appearanceness, and overall not goodness.

Even Tractor Traylor scored 20 points in an NBA game, once.

I bet he doesn't even hold up to his end of the bargain. Hansbrough will score 20 points at some point in time in his career. He's not that good, but even fat bastards that eat their way out of the league can score 20 points once.

ESPN Radio Match Doesn't Work

ESPN Radio has this little software tool that helps you find your radio match. Problem is it doesn't work. It gives you a sliding scale as you can see below.

I obviously picked Ignorant, Unintelligble, Clueless, Repulsive, and Tiresome fully expecting to be 100% compatible with Cap'n Douche. And yet I get this.

Lies, Horrible Lies.

Sometimes Michael Kay Is Too Stupid To Ignore

I know this is typically focusing on Cap'n Douche and Senor Sleeping Pills (nicknames are a work in progress) but sometimes Giant Forehead (Michael Kay) is just blatantly too stupid to not post about. In discussing Jason Campbell and Jay Cutler he said this doozy:

Jay Cutler and Jason Campbells numbers were almost identical. They have basically the same completion percentage and QB rating. Everythings almost identical except for Yards." Giant Forehead


Ok ok I'm composed now. Let's take a look. Cause the numbers a ludicrously different of course.

Ok they played 16 games a piece. Yay identical. Had similar QB ratings, completion percentages, and are comparitve in both rushing the ball and fumbling. Outside of that nothing is the identical. Nothing is even close to identical.

Cutler threw 12 more touchdowns and interceptions. That's not noticeable in the comparison? The two most noticeable QB stats aren't noticeable to you? Are you blind? Or just stupid. He threw 110 more times and threw for more than 1000 yards more. How they reached the same QB rating and completion percentage couldn't have possibly come from any different paths.

Wow. Just Wow.

BT Says Get Rid of A-Rod

Today, Tierney goes on a rant about how the Yankees should dump Arod and blah blah blah blah blah. He's a cheater. He's a headache. They haven't won with him. Etc. Etc. Etc. It's all pretty much BS. Then he lays a good one when the callers call up and said that the Yankees hold onto A-Rod because he gives them more PR and he boosts ticket sales. Somehow some way BT goes retarded.

"The Yankees were filling up the stadium well before A-Rod got there." Cap'n Sleeping Pills

False Brandon, very very very false. Let's take a look at the numbers thanks to Baseball Almanac.

See how the attendance numbers stagnated and then all of a sudden massive uptick in the year of A-Rod's acquistion and the subsequent increases each of the following seasons. Nothing to do with A-Rod obviously.

Uhhhh and then we get into really retarded arguments.

"The Yankees don't need A-Rod to win a World Series and the proof of that is the fact that they haven't won one with him here." Cap'n Sleeping Pills

Hardcore analysis right there. It hasn't happenned so it won't happen. Let's do some diligent analysis myself.

The Cubs haven't won a World Series during Alfonso Soriano's lifetime. They won't win until he dies. So quite obviously if the Cubs want to win a World Series than one of their fans must murder Soriano. Without murdering Soriano, no World Series for you.

I'm Cap'n Sleeping Pills and I Approve of this Message.
