Jason Bay had himself a week: 7 homers, 15 rbi, 34 total bases, a .500 avg. and, just for kicks, one stolen base.

I’m in a head to head fantasy league. This week, my opponent was Alejandro, who has Bay on his team.

Let’s just say, I lost just about all the offensive categories (except steals), and it was all because of Bay. What a stud.

Stop any debates about about who will be the Pirates’ all-star representative this year. It’s Bay. Period. After last week, there is no doubt.

Fortunately, I still won my fantasy matchup on the strength of my team’s pitching (Pedro and Halladay and Webb, oh my!). Team Umpbump cannot be stopped.

    Do people actually spend time debating who will be the Pirates’ all-star?

  2. You lucky dog. You still blew it with that Lieber-Weaver trade; I own you!

  3. Coley Ward says:

    Nick, people do debate who will be the Pirates’s all-star, only b/c the game will be held in Pittsburgh this year and it seemed particularly depressing that — until this past week — the team had nobody even remotely qualified to play in the game.

  4. Coley, the only thing your team rules at is finding spectacular ways to finish in the basement every year.

    Jason Bay is a stud though.

Will anybody get elected to the Hall of Fame this year?

Last week, we asked you to vote for who you would like to see enshrined in baseball’s Hall of Fame. The verdict? If it were up to UmpBump readers, nobody would make it in. The leading vote getter (so far) is Jeff Bagwell, who has 60% support. Of course, in the real voting, players need […]
