    Default Power 36: Trade Deadline Edition

    We have (1) the FAC poll; (2) the Morgado News Network (MNN) poll, which provides this week's VL comments; and (3) the Brow Sporting News (BSN), the source of this week's GL comments. Enjoy!



    FACMNNBSNTEAMComments
    142WIS11-3 run in July turns WIS from sellers to buyers. Can a 2-pitch SP make the difference?
    223IND1B Guy Stewart taking charge of IND offense with VL best 88 RBIs. Intentionally walked 14 times - twice anyone else in the VL.
    311ALKTheir top 3 SP all made the All-Star team. This is how you build a winning franchise.
    434GRNImmediately after taking 3 out of 4 from IND, Gophers foolishly accept Trojan Cooler of Red Stripe prior to series with MBJ.
    555MoneyballTurns out nobody cared how true it was to the book or actual baseball events and enjoyed the movie anyway.
    61212DESScorching hot July, strong bullpen back-end mask power deficit. Need to add a bat.
    766BOSHow are they better without Gibson, Keesee? Young SPs have matured and they bought a bullpen.
    877DURWhining owner barely survived a losing June. Suspect hitting & bullpen may finish the job.
    91413WICNot enough hitting to win it all. Is simply making the playoffs enough for Simms?
    10910POUDominating bullpen keeping the Paladins in the mix. Seven games vs. IND in the next two weeks is must see TV for VL watchers.
    111111Detroit Lions BandwagonHope you got on already. 3 high scoring wins against crappy teams driving playoff speculation.
    121515BARDropping 4 straight to MIL after the All Star game not promising in light of moves by competitors.
    131716UTILOL@UTI
    141314MRLGotta be more dangerous now... right? Still waiting to see what the roster will end up looking like at the trade deadline.
    1588MONBig addition of arms will help support the VL's third highest scoring offense. That John Lozano guy might be helpful too.
    16109MILTerribad 5-11 run through interleague play. Addition of Monster Mash a good but so far unspectacular move.
    172017NRWWhy is 17-year-old SP prospect Geoff Collins is in the majors with a 2 in CON?
    181818CAPIronman Hector Ortega going the distance in more than a quarter of his starts (28.6%).
    191919Fan interest in the 2012 NBA seasonKobe should take the 3.7 million McPinks from Virtus Bologna.
    202430HOLHow this team is only 6 games under .500 should trigger investigation into simmer.
    211620ARZFirst half of July (3-11) has fans wondering what happened and what could have been.
    222221TREDr. Jekyll at home (26-19), but clearly Mr. Hyde on the road (18-29).
    232725DAVHas there ever been a more important draft for a franchise than 2040's is for DAV?
    242524UTASP Oscar Tejada showing there's still something left in the tank with an improbable 10-2 record for the Raptors.
    252122QNSAbout the time of the year where owner stops exporting, starts winning.
    263032PORFire sale brings hope for the future, smoke inhalation injuries.
    272323LASClubhouse cancer Kenzaburo's departure a wakeup for Harris, Rivera?
    282826TRISP Keith Hodo about to return from DL. Too late to make up 11 games, though.
    292929Greek Debt ValuesWhat the hell is the 2% scenario where they DON'T default?
    303535MBJTraded away Cespedes and Wolf... Dropped 4 straight to RIC... BUT STILL NOT "Shittiest Team in the World."
    312627VIRRookie CF Garner regresses in July after hot June. Owner blames poor quality of recent cocaine purchase.
    323334COLUnfortunate 6 week ankle injury spoiled LF Rodrigo Rivera's bid to repeat his 2037 MVP numbers.
    333131SACSAC Owner laying low with young talent stockpile in AAA. September call-ups could hurt draft position.
    343228AYRScoring runs hand over fist (3rd in FOBL), but giving them up just as fast (30th in FOBL).
    353433OROHow can a team that hits this well be so bad? O HAI 5.20 TEAM ERA.
    363636RICTrading Lozano fortified the RIC stranglehold on dead last.

    I fully expect POU to be in the red when we take the series from IND (while crossing my fingers we don't go 0-7 and dropping into the green...

    Yeah, i'm not entirely sure how the FAC does its power rankings. I was also surprised to see WIS first.

    If MRL makes it out of August alive after running the MON-GRN-POU-MIL gauntlet, I will move MRL up the charts faster than cuervo could click links to free Femjoy high-res full album archives.
