A Drunk Baboon

I hate to be that guy who talks about his fantasy baseball team but I came across an article the other day that kind of summed up my season.  Let me go back a little, though, and explain.  At a couple points I was looking good.  The hitters were hitting.  The pitchers were pitching.  But some guys were starting to taper off so I made some changes.

Bad idea.  As most readers of this blog know, we like to comment on the simian nature of Vicente Padilla.  However, despite two year’s worth of warnings, I went ahead and picked him up anyway.  He was pitching well, the Dodgers looked good.  How could I lose?

Well, instead of trying to explain what Padilla did to my season, I’ll refer you to the article I mentioned at the beginning.  Yes, I think the best way to describe Vicente Padilla is “drunk baboon.”  Read the article while imagining my team as Cape Town and you’ll get the picture.

Oh no! Another post pickin on Padilla! He actually has given me a few nice games in the past n my FB team. You know he has behaved with the Dodgers, he signs autographs for fans and is friendly with them.

Do I even want to know what that is on his tongue? It just looks very “eww”y.

How did you find that pic of Padilla doing what he does best? That man sweats and spits more than any player I’ve ever seen.

What IS it with you guys and Vicente Padilla? It’s like me with Jason Vargas/Eric Bruntlett—-just….can’t….resist.
