    True. Still not getting there, and if anything makes it that much more dumb and reckless. I know you're very much into the Darwin Awards for all this, though, which....you're not wrong to some extent.
    To some extent... ;)

    Just go and convince one procrastinator to get their shot. A lot of people aren't hesitant or whatever, just lazy.

    The only thing not being lifted is the mask mandate, all other restrictions are being lifted memorial day

    Edit: Also, sounds like Philly isn't reopening.

    I guarantee you some political pressure from somewhere will change Kenney's tune. They did this before, and then like a week later changed course.

    Can you imagine the uproar if Kapler made this mistake?

    Some dude around here whined about the Ryan Howard contract endlessly; the Pujols deal was exponentially worse and his decline can't be linked to any dramatic injuries as far as I know. Complete and utter disaster for the Angels who have totally squandered Mike Trout and won zero playoff games during the Pujols contract.

    Yeah, they definitely did not get their money's worth. Solid, shrewd move by St. Louis, albeit I'm sure he would've played better in STL. LAA was paying/gambling at least on getting past A-Rod and Ruth with the homer record with an Angels uniform on, other than that they paid for past performance.

    Wheeler has been here for over a year, and I think I'm just now getting over the fact that he was a Met and that he is pretty amazing to watch when he's on.

    In fantasy, my opponent has Means from the Orioles and his no-hitter got him 59 points. But I have Wheeler and his complete game shutout got me 47 points. He's been great so far this year.

    Only +8 points for a no hitter?  That is rough.  CGSO is rare, but no hitter would be a bigger bonus, you would think.

    My leagues are all H2H and categories.  No listings for No Hitters so CGSOs.  In one of my leagues we do have CG but it is something that most frequently goes 0-0 with neither team finishing with a CG for the week.
    A lost art!

    Craziest thing about Means no-no, if not for a passed ball on a strike out he would have had a perfect game.
  • Johnny AbruzzoJohnny Abruzzo PhillyPosts: 7,472
    You should never lose your fantasy game if your pitcher throws a no hitter. It should be like a million bonus points.

    Harper-less 4 game sweep over a winning team that can whack - with a shutout to close it out - SWEET(P)!

    Actually it’s only 5 for a no-hitter. And only 5 more for a perfect game. I agree it should be more, but I’m thankful it’s not in this circumstance lol
