33rd Season Is in the Books
Drew Gallagher,
10/02/17

The Altered States League moved to a 5x5, created one of the dopiest categories known to man (I’m looking at you “holds), and is positioned to get rid of the beloved and much maligned second catcher position. None of this has apparently fazed The Bombers as they won another pennant and with quite a bit of ease. It seems like a lifetime ago that Dodge was within striking distance but apparently the run at the leader took a lot of juice out of Matt’s plucky band of Oriole middle relievers as he limped into a 4th place finish.

The Question Marks finished second, their highest finish ever, and apparently all it took was getting rid of Mike Trout who obviously had been holding his team back for his five-year tenure with the Marks and had no hardware to show for it. Of course having Aaron Judge and Andrew Benintendi fill the void appears to have helped.

The Yardbirds finished third and though it is difficult to pin the final day switch in standings on one player alone, I have to believe that there will be a special place in Rick’s heart for Blake Snell from this point forward. Snell allowed two hits (NO WALKS), no runs while whiffing 13 Orioles who were obviously trying to hit flights out of Baltimore rather than fastballs. The WHIP category was incredibly tight entering the final day of the season and Zilla’s outing for the Question Marks pretty much locked up the second spot.

The battle for 5th place was interesting until Blake Snell turned into Sandy Koufax and the Bohicas lived up to their team name and anally raped me in the RBI category on the season’s final day. The resulting tie for 6th place will lead to a coin toss at some point to see if I get the 2nd reserve pick (likely Willie Calhoun because Jurickson Profar’s spot on my roster has to be filled by someone) or if it goes to the Weis Guys.

I will try to get (winning payments) mailed by Christmas. (Scott Winterburn is supposed to pay me back any day now on an investment he assured me would net 10% between April and now. Just need the Pennsylvania penal system to grant him early release.)

In case it was not abundantly clear, I hate the holds and saves category and would like to see the Chris Bando, Ron Karkovice position stick around. But I suppose there are rules in place to make certain we don’t change those on a whim. Whimsical, however, is not always a bad thing.

If by chance anyone has had  enough of funding the Bombers’ annual Christmas shopping please let us know that you do not intend to return for 2018. You’ll certainly be missed…kind of like the holds category.

How Did the Bombers Not Win?
Drew Gallagher,
10/03/16
Well, another ASL season is in the books and once again proves the adage: “That’s why they play the games.” With most everyone conceding the title to The Bombers in January (before he even stole Big Papi at the draft), it was surprising (shocking?) that he did not go wire to wire. In fact, The Tumors didn’t make any dump trades at the deadline because he felt he could finish third or fourth without dumping and there was no way he was catching The Bombers. Well, pitching counts for half of the stats and apparently The Bombers pitching disappeared over the final few months of the season. Now Chris raising another championship trophy is something we’ve all grown accustomed to, but Dodge finishing in the money (let alone second and ahead of The Bombers) continues to defy logic. Hats off to Polaras yet again.

The debate continues as to if it’s better to finish 4th or 5th given the number one overall pick.
I will try to get to the bank this week and mail the checks by the end of the year…(Sorry, a little Scott Winteburn humor there.)

And I’d like to take a moment to thank the Bohicas for insisting that Yoan Moncada was untouchable. It meant that we had to tamp down our trade a bit at the deadline and through my own foolishness I almost got it hung up on Joaquin Benoit. But the Bohicas persisted, and thus I had to take the Moncada consolation prize—kid by the name of Gary Sanchize. Guess he is worth $14 for 2017!

Please let us know if you do not intend to return for 2017 and let the trading begin. (And for whatever it’s worth, I preferred the old 4x4 to the 5x5.)

Congratulations to The Bombers
Drew Gallagher,
10/06/15
GMy wife often asks me: “Which owners make up the Mount Rushmore of the Altered States League and how are you so good in bed?” (Of course my wife has never asked either of those things, but there is a greater likelihood she’d ask about the ASL than any bedroom prowess.)

Much like the career of Jim Kaat, my own inclusion in any Mount Rushmore conversation would be based solely on longevity, but as the only owner who has participated for all 31 years of the ASL I would reserve a spot for myself despite having won only one championship. (Aaaah, but it was magic Mark McLemore! Magic.) And though the Chicken took a few years off from the ASL, he is the founding father and such a handsome man that it would be folly to absent him from eternity. After that, the dialogue becomes more interesting. I would be partial to Our Pal Chris Mal and not just because of one magical night we shared in a single bed in Plattsburgh, NY.

But there would be plenty of candidates and some of those names would have to include the lovable Reading Wretch (may he rest in peace) whose likeness etched into a mountainside would instantly become one of the great tourist destinations in the USA. (“Grand Canyon? Screw you, Dad, we want to see the unfit bald guy with a beard and a jersey that he can’t button.”) And one of my personal favorites would have to be Matt Dodge because he spins straw into gold just about every season with rosters of seeming detritus and has actually published articles on rotisserie baseball without his wife and kids making fun of him. Plus he has made baby carrots cool again. And many of you don’t know Steve Snyder, but he was the master of the double-fisted bid and his likeness would certainly be a welcome addition to any mountain if it included his signature move set in stone in perpetuity.
Of course there are many other worthy candidates and characters, but one candidate who is quickly emerging is Mark Martin with his second title in only three years of the ASL. All talk of Mount Rushmore is premature at this point for The Bombers (check back in another 31 years), but with a roster seemingly loaded for the next few years one has to wonder how many championships he can string together. And based upon the recent results, the ASL was far from a competitive league prior to the arrival of Martin and Weis. Both are cashing checks like a televangelical ministry. And now Bohicas, with fair warning in his team name, is taking his part in the conga line of money spots.

Checks will be mailed in the not too distant future (I have to find my car title because apparently they will give me money for it) so if you cashed please send me your address. There will be a slight deduction from The Bombers total since I gave him Betances in a “dump” trade. Call it a finder’s fee!

Please let us (Matt, Chicken or myself) know if you do not intend to return and we will weep openly. At this point the Met-Ros need to return if for no other reason than to create Billy Burns controversy at the draft for the third year in a row. Now, at least, people actually might know who the hell Billy Burns is.

Gentlemen, as always, it’s been real and it’s been fun. Looking forward to 2016, but I have to say that holds is a really dumb category. However, Brett Cecil and Junichi Tazawa are available.

ASL - Year in Summary
Drew Gallagher,
10/03/13
Gentlemen:

The ASL started in 1985 and though some of archives were lost in the Great Drago Apartment Dishwasher Flood, our collective memories cannot recall a time when an owner left 42 dollars on the draft board. As was well documented at the draft and immediately after the draft, Matt Dodge did that very thing this year…and he still freaking won! I have described Matt’s keeper lists often as a so much flotsam and jetsam and yet he continues to confound and cash. So on bended knee, I offer up my heartfelt congratulations and humility to that great bespectacled Red Beard in the sky. The 2013 champion will certainly go down in ASL lore and balladeers and James Taylor will write songs about Jim Johnson.

Chris finished second (yawn) but what was really interesting is that it was game 163 that gave him second place. He and Dale were tied for second after game 162, but with game 163 the Question Marks’ Evan Longoria got hot at the plate and the Question Marks passed Dale in batting average and second place was Chris’ alone. Dale blames Perk for his third place finish and Perk was quite comfortable with shouldering that blame.

Marty held off the Chicks for fourth, but most importantly the Chick finished ahead of the Drewers. As Michael has oft said, the measure of a season’s success is in beating the Drewers and not necessarily in finishing in the money. However, to quote the late, great Mittl Infielders: “I like my team (for next year)”.
There are a number of offseason decisions/votes to discuss including the innings requirement and at some point Jamie will put forth a survey for everyone to vote upon. In the meantime, Perk has made it abundantly clear that he does not intend to return for 2014 but will be there to help run the draft (not draft Jamie’s team). I know Mark Martin may have a potential owner to fill that spot but if anyone else knows of anyone who might be interested please let us know.

Enjoyed having both of the two new owners in the league this year and Crush Davis turned out to be a Weis first-round selection.

It’s always a fun time of year when my wife writes the checks to the winners and she looks at me with her poorly concealed contempt for losing yet again, but I’ll tell you what I always tell her…Next Year is the Year of the Drewer!

Hope everyone is well and thank you.

Drew Gallagher

Another Title in the Works for the Question Marks?
Mike Drago, 3/18/13
According to the Chickens' fearless annual pre-draft power-rating formula, the Question Marks are favored to win the 2013 ASL championship.

The Chickens' Power Rating has correctly predicted the past three ASL champions, targeting the Manny Ramirez's in 2012, the Tumors in 2011 and the Questionmarks in 2010 (they tied with Toilets).
Last season, the CPR predicted that the Daley Doubles would finish second . . . which they did.

In this year's rankings, the Drewers come in with the second-highest CPR and the Polaras are at No. 3.  It should be noted, however, that the Drewers have effectively been able to screw these things up in the past.
 
New Owners and Draft Day
Drew Gallagher, 2/18/13
Gentlemen:

Through the magnetism of The Chicken and Mr. Dodge, we have added three new owners to the ASL for this season with them filling two vacancies (Perk and Metcalfe) as well as our “12th” open slot so we are heading into our 29th year with a full 12-team league just in time for the Astros. The new owners (in no particular order) are Mark Martin (not the racecar driver, although truthfully he could be and I’d be no closer to recognizing him), Eric Weiser (team name almost has to be The Weis Men) and a co-ownership of Denny and Bret who swear they will fill the Orioles’ void created by the departure of Mr. Metcalfe.

We are in the process of setting up a dispersal draft for the three new owners which is being cobbled together from the rosters vacated by Perk and Metcalfe. Before that draft has even occurred, all three teams have better pitching staffs than most of the existing teams. It is our sincere hope that we get the dispersal draft concluded shortly so the new owners have a month or so to move and shake down their rosters. The Doc Martins have already announced Jurickson Profar Bobblehead day at The Doc Yard.

With the return to 12 teams, rosters will be 23 players with budget of $260. Makeup will be fourteen position players and nine pitchers although we may reduce the number of 
pitchers to “1” for this season in a nod to Our Pal Chris Mal who has asked if he can trade for passes during the draft. The active offensive positions will be: 2 catchers (Rick wanted to add a 3rd, but I told him we could vote on that in the offseason), DH, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, INF, WC, 5 OFs.

You can keep up to 13 players and five rookies when we freeze rosters on March 16. Please have your freeze lists in by noon on the 16th. Rick submitted his the day after the World Series…

Draft day will be on March 23rd at 10 a.m. at The Third Rail in Blandon, PA. For the new guys, we usually order lunch at some point during the proceedings and throw in a few shekels for the use of the room on top of our tab. The Third Rail is the Blandon equivalent of the Waldorf Astoria but without the ice sculptures for brunch. The owner is a very nice guy and very gracious in offering up his watering hole for our use (yeah, there was probably a better way of phrasing that).

As always, I’m looking forward to this season which has already been dubbed the Year of The Drewer in all promotional literature we have sent out to season ticket holders. Of course, that pronouncement was made in anticipation of the Indians trading Chris Perez to open up the closer role for My Cousin Vinnie, but there is still time.

ASL Recap
Drew Gallagher,
10/30/11
Gentlemen:

With major league baseball graciously moving up the end of the regular season, we may have to change Chris’ moniker to Mr. September after yet another ASL title. This is Chris’ fifth ASL title which leaves him only two behind The Chicken for all-time ASL supremacy in the 27-year history of the league (Editor’s note: Neither Chris nor Michael have been in the league for all 27 years. That distinction lies with me alone. My wife is so proud.) It’s amazing what a healthy Jacoby Ellsbury can do. And speaking of which, shouldn’t he be back in the draft by now?

The race for the top spot was probably decided a few weeks ago but the race for second place went down to the final few days and the race for fifth place lit erally went down to the last few innings. As late as 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday night, Scott Metcalfe was clinging to a half point lead over Perk. But something happened on the way to the Huskies’ fifth place finish and dibs on the number one overall pick. It appears that PBJ must’ve nabbed a win in the closing moments of the 2011 season and Jose Valverde’s scoreless ninth helped push Perk just past Dale in ERA (which also helped solidify “Whoever drafted for Jamie this Season” in second place). That, my friends, was a 1.5 point swing and landed Perk a money spot and the rights to trade the number one pick to someone for a keeper. Looking at his roster, it appears that any keeper will do. At least the Huskies still have Joe Bat in the fold for one more season to pair with Justin Verlander.

Although we no longer vote for postseason awards (we act ually did once upon a time and it was kind of fun), GM of the Year has to go to Matt Dodge for steering that collection of flotsam to a fourth place finish. Year in and year out I look at Matt’s roster in the offseason and find myself unimpressed. Year in and year out I look at his team after the draft and am still not impressed. When my wife cuts him a check every October I am duly impressed. So congratulations to Matt on another improbable finish in the green.
In our National League, we once collectively showed our outrage at one J.D. Drew and his spurning of the Phillies by banning him from the draft for two years. Seriously, we’re petty that way. And in a similarly punitive gesture that I am not putting to a league vote, all references to or owning of Robert Andino are outlawed in the ASL from this day forward.

On a serious note, I wanted to offer up a thank you to Paul Rosa for hanging with us this season. Paul went through a year that I wouldn’t wish upon anyone and I hope that everyone’s health is improved going forward. (In a Virginia Tech sidebar: I like Clemson getting 7 on Saturday.)

We will be looking forward to a possible draft date for 2012 after we check with Jamie’s wife to make certain it fits her schedule and Jamie can attend a draft instead of bringing forth these ringers that somehow bid $45 on Howie Kendrick and it still works out. Major League Baseball is going to begin the season earlier in March with a series in Japan that might garner as many TV ratings as a Tampa Bay v. Arizona World Series.

I certainly hope everyone intends to return for next season and I wou ld only ask that if you have other plans please let us know. And in that vein, Jamie just told me he has a conflict with our draft date for 2012. Caps, you’re on the clock!

Thanks to everyone for another great season. The Yardbirds are currently fielding offers for Eric Hosmer. Apparently the opening bid must include 20 virgins or at least a hooker that has not yet appeared on Cops.

Season's End
Drew Gallagher,
10/05/10
Gentlemen:

For the first time in the 26-year history of the ASL we had a tie atop the standings. The Question Marks and The Toilets finished in a dead heat and each led in four categories so we combined the prize money for first and second and had them split it. We will continue to do it this way going forward because it sucks when the payout difference is $450.00 between first and second. Thanks to Dodge landing us a new stat service the winner received $1,012.50. That’s easily the highest payout in the history of the ASL and other than some minor glitches throughout the season (and the live standings on the final day) the stat service was passable. It’s not AllStar Stats but it’s more money in Rick’s pocket and that’s all anyone really cares about. We’ve had two races decided by one point previously (1997 and 2000) but never a tie for first.

With Mark and Jamie as co-champions that gives the ASL 15 different winners in its 26-year history. Drew Wine still remains the most unlikely winner in the history of the ASL.

Jamie’s championship sets an unusual streak of two years in a row of the winning owner not being present at the draft. Who would’ve ever guessed that Howie Kendrick would play more games than Dustin Pedroia?

After the deadlock at the top, The Yardbirds finished third for his highest finish ever and I was next in the kissing one’s sister spot. Chris finished 5th and lands the overall number 1 pick in the supplemental draft. Dale finished last despite the fact that Perk’s entire roster finished the season on the DL.

This year was the year of the trade for a player and have them get injured. Jamie trades Soria for Magglio Ordonez and Ordonez goes down for the season. I trade for Jake Peavy and two starts later he’s shut down for the season which helped him fit right in with team DL Drewer. And I’m going to take this opportunity to cry and bitch over spilt milk.

 
Players on the DL at some point in 2010: Carlos Pena, Curtis Granderson, Kurt Suzuki, Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis, Tommy Hunter, Cliff Lee, Jose Valverde, Joel Zumaya, Koji Ueharra, Jake Peavy.

I understand that injuries are part of the game and I recognize that Perk was devastated by injuries and The Chicken lost Grady Sizemore and Chris lost Jacoby Ellsbury and Rick lost Justin Morneau etc. etc. but the above players missed significant time and it’s a damned All-Star team. I also whine and moan because the cupboard is bare and it’s going to be a few years until I return to any sort of contention status based upon the projected keepers for 2011! Not a good cornerstone for the franchise when said cornerstone may be the Red Sox fifth outfielder coming out of spring training.

And with that, let’s turn an eye toward next season. It soon becomes apparent that there is no emerging juggernaut in the 2011 keeper lists. Of course, $1 closers will emerge as spring progresses but a lot of contracts are coming off of the books. Metcalfe has Jose Bautista for a mere $3 and Rajai Davis for $8. That’s a pretty good start. P.J. has some nice young arms. Perk has a ton of talent if they could just take up space in box scores instead of in the trainer’s room. In short, it’s anyone’s race (surprisingly). So let the offseason maneuvering begin and let Rick mull over how much to make Cano.

Anyone who has any issues for the winter survey please send them to me or Jamie. We’ll need to address draft weekend at some point since MLB wants to move up the start time this year. Draft day seems like only yesterday when the season held such promise and I was looking for the nearest ATM at 11:30 at night…

Cliff Lee needs to sign in the AL and Manny needs to sign in the NL. Jamie will be cleaning up the rosters in a few days so Brandon Inge is coming soon to a draft near you! I think pitchers and catchers report in like 130 days. Enjoy the playoffs.

Drew Gallagher

The Yankees Suck and Other Notes from 2009
Drew Gallagher,
11/05/09
Gentlemen,

We just finished up our 25th season of the Altered States League and in a quarter century of playing this ridiculous (and entertaining) game I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a more unlikely team capture the crown than the 2009 Dodge Polaras squad. Seriously, look over that roster and tell me how he did it. But ultimately the question is moot because he did do it so congratulations to Matt on his first ASL crown! It could not have happened to a nicer guy. Also, kudos to substitute draftman Danny O for picking up such nuggets as $1 Ben Zobrist on draft day to point the Polaras in the right direction. (Trivia question: Which owner threw Zobrist back into the draft? Hint: He jumped off a building and broke his leg soon thereafter.)

Not to diminish Matt’s accomplishment but congratulations are also due to The Chicken for turning around that moribund squad he inherited in two years to take second place. I’ll go out on a limb and argue that Winterburn never would’ve had that team in contention…ever. In the win now era of sports, the pressure is on the Three-Headed Owner to try to turn Stu’s team around by October of 2010. Otherwise heads will roll. Which might be a good thing because then we’ll actually know which of the three owners to contact for trades.

The Question Marks cashed for a second year in a row (don’t tell his wife) and have a nice core of young players returning for 2010 or, as Mark refers to it, the last year with lovechild Nick Markakis under contract for less than $50.

Jamie kissed his sister by finishing fourth and one spot ahead of the 1st reserve pick but at least he got money instead of the second overall pick which I’m certain I’ll turn into Warner Madrigal. Dale somehow managed to make up a 13-point deficit over the last couple of weeks to claim the coveted number one overall draft pick. He has sent playoff shares to Carlos Pena, Adam Jones and Jose Guillen for bailing on the last month of the Drewers’ season.

In housekeeping matters, any questions or concerns you have going into 2010 should be sent to Jamie so he can include them in the winter survey. Please don’t be alarmed if Jamie doesn’t respond to your e-mails immediately, he’s probably procreating (again). At this rate, Jamie may be the first owner ever to populate a league exclusively with his own offspring. He could even use the ASL and simply change it to the All Schlesinger League.

I have glimpsed the potential keeper lists for 2010 and, my friends, I would not recommend it without first consulting your physician. It’s so bad that I won’t even let me six-year old near the computer screen for fear he might get nightmares. “Daddy, is Manny Delcarmen really a keeper?” “Go to bed son. Santa comes in less than two months.”

That being said, what fun would it be without some preliminary predictions for 2010…

Pitching-wise no one can hold a flame to The Tumors who return a $4 bullpen (Francisco is likely to get a contract) with Bailey and Francisco. He also has AL CY Young award winner to be Zach Greinke in the fold. Offensively he has Ellsbury, Juan Rivera and Aaron Hill so it looks like a money team. Probably the early November favorite for the 2010 title provided he doesn’t keep Carlos Gomez and Brett Gardner.
The Question Marks have a nice offense to build around Evan Longoria (contract year? $25 easy) and 2010 is the last year before I go for $50 Nick Markakis. Pitching is better than most.

Perk has a decent start on offense with Kendry Morales (look at his numbers, they are sick and probably worthy of Roto MVP of 2009), Alex Gordon and Sin Soo Choo (bless you) who leaves after 2010 to fulfill his Korean military service (I’m not making that up). His pitching sucks but that’s a recurring theme here.

The Chicks have a leg up on the rest of the league (except Chris) by having Aardsma in the coop. I made a trade this season where I threw in Nick Punto. Who throws in a sub $5 closer? Two heads may be better than one but I’ve got my doubts about three heads…

Our defending champion has Nelson Cruz and….and….a winner’s check from 2009. Hope he can stretch it out for a couple of years.

Yardbirds’ owner Rick Franz was recently heard saying: “A day without Gordon Beckham is like a day without sunshine.” The fact that he has three or four $1 outfielders to go with Mr. Beckham makes it an interesting squad for 2010. Morneau and Cano make it a little more pricey but the offense is there. His pitching sucks but I think you are all starting to get the gist.

Marty said that he saw Mauer, ARod and Crawford all as keepers. He’s got a pitching staff better than most so maybe tying up nearly $120 in salary on the other three won’t be so bad. But better than most means he has two or three pitchers worth keeping.

Jamie has Soria and Verlander so another team with pitching that goes two deep.

The Three-Headed Owner has Andrus and Adam Lind and David Aardsma heading into 2010. Not a bad start and better than the team Stu left him with, but then you remember that he traded Aardsma and it all starts to fall apart…

Is Rajai Davis for real? Scott hopes so. If LaPorta and Butler produce as expected the offense has a nice start to it.

And I just realized that I forgot to look at Dale’s team. I know his team would look a lot better with Zobrist and Cliff Lee but he does have the number 1 pick in the reserve draft.

Projected Order for money spots as of 11/5/09:

1. The Drewers!

2. The Tumors

3. The Question Marks

4. (tie) The Yardbirds, Perk and The Chicks

It’s November and to quote the late, great John Mittl: “I like my team!” (pitching be damned)

Congratulations again to Dodge. Bidding for Danny O’s services at 2010’s draft begins at two pitchers of Yuengling and an appetizer (if you can throw in a leftfielder for the Sox all the better).

Happy Trading!

New Owner
Drew Gallagher,
1/30/09
Gentlemen,

When an owner builds a team around one Carlos Gonzalez and the cornerstone is traded to the Rockies in the offseason well it's probably time to hang up the fantasy baseball hat and try out other pursuits such as golf or, as in this case, women. This is the path that Stu has opted for in retiring Three Sheetz from The Wind from the ASL. At his closing press conference, Stu informed the huddled masses.

"Look, I enjoyed draft day and hanging out with the other owners, but I enjoy having sex a whole lot more. I'm not saying that I'll never be back because if this is Mrs. Sheetz number three I know that the fountain will run dry soon thereafter."

It was not easy replacing Stu (not only because no owner has ever cherised Willie Bloomquist more than Stu but because he quite possibly has the worst list of keepers ever amassed) but one-time ASL owner Paul Rosa has agreed to take the reins with a new co-owner Jack Mitchell. Team name to be announced as soon as
they come up with one. This now means that there are eight shared owners between the ASL and ESL. Paul once cut his teeth in the ASL from 2000-2003 with a different co-owner but wanted to be part of and a witness to Chris finally having to draft some offensive players and a closer for the first time in recent memory.

Paul is still trying to figure out how a team that finished last with arguably six keepers only scores the 8th pick in the reserve draft but until that time he said that he is open to all offers. I think his e-mail information is already on the web site.

Draft day is April 4th at Tailgaters at 11 a.m. Rosters are frozen at up to 13 keepers on March 28th by 11 a.m. Pitchers and catchers report two weeks from tomorrow!

Thanks,
Drewer
 
One for The Thumb
Drew Gallagher, 1
0/01/08
Gentlemen,

Another season and another championship for the Malignancies. Though The Chicken bestowed the honors on Chris when he saw his initial roster, the season was not without some drama after the "Jamie Rape" a few weeks before the deadline. The Keppinger Fan Club leapt into first place for a short while and actually made Chris the Cubs of the ASL for a few weeks. But just like the New York Yankees, when the regular season ends you know Chris will be at the top. Well, except this year because the Yankees are old and ARod is a selfish ass.

This is the fifth ASL title for Chris who still trails the Chicken (7). (It pained me to type that.)

The Daley Doubles cruised to a second place finish based mostly on trading an injured Adam Jones to the Drewers without revealing the full extent of the injury. (In short, he treated me like the Mariners with Erik Bedard.) Dale celebrated his second place finish by jumping up and down on a sofa like Tom Cruise. What Dale failed to realize was that Tom Cruise has magic underwear that protects him from injury and Dale, naked and wearing no underwear (magic or otherwise), broke his leg in the fall.

The Question Marks had to wait out two extra games to hold off Fan Club for a third place finish. There are many reasons to rejoice over Mark finishing third (he's got four kids that he'll have to put through college one day) but foremost is that Jamie finished fourth--the kissing your sister spot in the standings. Yes, Jamie cashed, but some would argue that Scott, finishing fifth and getting the first overall pick in the reserve draft, made out better. The gods of fantasy baseball intervened to set the world straight after the "Jamie Rape". (Trade update: Sean Rodriguez, who Jamie said was a guaranteed stud for years to come, finished the season with a .204 batting average in 167 at bats. Projected over 500 at bats, Sean Rodriguez will hit .204.)
After finishing 11th his first two years in the ASL, Scott Metcalfe cashed for the second year in a row.

Matt Dodge just missed cashing for the third year in a row which would've been one of the great feats of all-time since he punted both the power categories and not even the famed Pete DeCoursey tried that (at least not on purpose).

The Chicken pieced together a roster of flotsam and made an interesting run at the top five. He'll have the third overall pick in the supplemental draft to show for it.

Rick finished eighth but gets fantasy MVP Carlos Quentin back at $10 and has a $3 closer for 2009. Though neither can hold a candle to Sean Rodriguez who played in 59 games and hit three homeruns. Projected over 150 games that comes to eight homeruns. But he'll hit .204!

Any issues that you would like to include for the annual survey please forward to Jamie. Payments for the money spots will be mailed in the coming weeks. (As an aside, can we begin to fathom what excuses our former treasurer, Scott Winterburn, would've been throwing out there in this economic climate?)

Provided Tailgaters doesn't become the 100th restaurant to fail in Berks County in the coming months, we hope to have our draft there again. Trading season is now open.

Go Sox! (The Chicken Sux.)

The Return of the King
Drew Gallagher, 11/30/07
Gentlemen,

As the winter meetings approach, I wanted to make you aware of one seismic change in the ASL landscape. The Wine Drives, with one ASL championship in two years, have been ceded to a man that makes Mark Cuban look humble…a man who former Red Sox pitcher Dennis Boyd dubbed the original Oil Can…a man who knows the "c" in Gubicza is silent... The myth, the self-aggrandizing legend, the founding father of the ASL….The San Drago Chicken himself, Mr. Mike Drago has returned (again).

For those of you unfamiliar with Michael and his rotisserie prowess there is a Wikipedia entry. He was gracious enough to help us out at last year's draft and cover for the Daley Doubles. He was thrust into the middle of Silvagate and was not appeased until an official fatwa was rendered. (Said fatwa resulted in Silva being traded by the Perk N Beans to the Doubles later in the season.) He founded the Altered States League in 1985 with a bunch of reporters, deadbeat friends and a 15-year old whose first draft was highlighted by the drafting of Pat Tabler and Brook Jacoby for $1 each. He is still a reporter for the Reading Eagle, his friends are still deadbeats and Pat Tabler remains the highlight of 23 years of ASL drafts for said 15-year old.
When advised of the new owner, Perk N Beans owner Jon Perkins issued the following statement: "The guy's a toolbag but at least he's not a little bitch like Dale. Can we kick Dale out?"

In a totally unrelated move, The Drewers announced the rehiring of Dick Drago as their new pitching coach. Drewer Manager for life, Pat Tabler (see above), said that the move had nothing to do with the return of The San Drago Chicken and put it off as mere coincidence. When reminded that Dick Drago seems to be rehired as the pitching coach for The Drewers every time The Chicken returns to the league he said it was nothing more than coincidence. "Look, sometimes two great things go together. Like chocolate and peanut butter. Pizza and beer. Dick and Drago."

I personally am tickled to have Drago back in the fold and have always maintained that the ASL without The Chicken is like a day without sunshine or a Pete DeCoursey car without a boot on the front tire.

Now please join me in hoping that Dan Haren gets traded to the Mets.

New ASL Owner
Drew Gallagher, 1/16/07
Gentlemen,

I wanted to give everyone an opportunity to disconnect their e-mails before we announce the addition of Jamie Schlesinger (aka Mini Mal) to the ASL. Jamie has participated in the ESL for a few years and was handpicked by Perk to fill the void created by the departure of Scott Winterburn. Jamie brings a string of unending e-mails and trade proposals without the benefit of spell check. To describe Jamie as “active” would be like describing Chris Elliott’s Oscar worthy performance in “Cabin Boy” as average. Or comparing the excitement level of draft day to a 12-year old cheerleading competition.
The one nice thing about Jamie and his e-mails is that they require no research on your part. The players he is trading to you are sure Hall of Famers while all that he is asking in return is a little kindness and a $5 King Felix with a tired arm certain to breakdown by the end of April. Or he’ll offer Scott Metcalfe a reserve pick for BoSox closer Joel Pineiro forgetting that we all now have access to RotoWorld.

A warm welcome to Jamie and my only request is that I be courtesy copied on any trade offers between Jamie and Matt Dodge.

Thanks,
Drewer
 
Thank You
Drew Wine, 10/05/06
I, too, would like to Thank All of You responsible for the Wine Drives success.

C-City B for undertaking fatherhood and deeming the ASL too time consuming for his new life.

Drew Gallagher for inviting me to play and managing my team in a deliberate attempt to somehow beat Chris.

Dale Scott for teaching me the rules that Gallagher conveniently ignored.

Margaret Gallagher for coming up with the name Wine Drives!

Chris, as fair minded commissioner, who constantly had to make moves for me because of the weak Internet service I employ.
Mark Bennett for the late night call to pick up Bobby Abreu. (music in the background)

My MVP Derek Jeter plus teamates Jason Giambi and Vernon Wells, . . . Johan (what can I say, I love you all!)

Scott Schoeneweiss with a win and Ben Broussard with a steal when it only mattered to the Wine Drive's.

And finally, like the Boss, Steinbrenner, I had to write the check. Now I get to cash one!

Perk, I'll see you in the celler next year!
 
The 2006 ASL Coronation
Drew Gallagher, 10/02/06
Gentlemen,

The season hath ended and after the warning track dust has settled and the MRI machine used to examine Francisco Liriano finally broke, The
Wine Drives were left atop the mound of injured and dead (made up mostly of Perk's active roster) to claim the ASL pennant in the team's first year of existence.

The Malignancies, as always, gave a spirited run at the rookie but the quest fell about two shutout wins short. The Daley Doubles prevailed in a tight race for third place and outpaced the Polaras by one point.
Without checking the ASL annals, I believe that it may have been the first money finish for Mr. Dodge. A much-deserved honor. The rotting corpse that was the season-end Drewers limped into the final money spot.
(Note to Scott Winterburn: I now have the first reserve pick for 2007 so start mulling over the offers.)

Owner and general manager Drew Wine was ebullient in the championship clubhouse after getting doused with Dom Perignon by team MVP Derek Jeter.

"Can you believe that guy was tagging Mariah Carey?," he asked before whipping a slimmed down Jason Giambi in the ass with a towel.

But the biggest bare hugs were saved for closer Todd Jones who single-handedly preserved The Wines tenuous foothold in the saves category all year.

"The liberal media has blamed Bush for Iraq and also stated that I was a puppet owner who merely took the all-star squad that the C City B had assembled and just didn't screw them up. Well, my answer to those
critics is two words: Todd Jones."
"Greg drafted that oft-injured no talent Octavio Dotel as his closer and look where he finished last year. I recognized early on the need for a high-end closer. Though I readily admit I had no idea who Todd Jones
was when I drafted him, I knew that I wanted a fat guy who made me look good naked. Certainly Matt Stairs fit that bill but with TJ AND Stairs I look like an Adonis when I get out of the clubhouse shower."

When asked why the owner showers with his players Mr. Wine blamed the liberal media again. He further added that the conservative media sees no problem with such interaction between grown men and, in fact, seems to have no problem with that same interaction between grown men and teenage pages on the Hill.

So now we can turn our focus to 2007, the 23rd year of the ASL! For any owners who do not wish to participate in 2007 please let us know immediately so we can usher in the next generation of first-year champions. The Huskies, 3Sheetz, Yardbirds and Slickers have amassed some nice keepers for 2007. Winterburn has his stable of rookies and the lingering cancer that is ERod. Will they finally part company this offseason? The Question Marks nearly captured a money spot without gutting their roster and The Malignances have said that they have their deepest keeper list ever. As for the Polaras, Doubles, Perk N Beans and the Drewers? Seasons are not built or won on October potential. The battle for 9th places next September should be heated.

Trading season is open!

2006 ASL Draft Day
Year #22
Saturday, April 1st, 2006, 11AM
at Tailgaters Steakhouse

* Last year Marty called just as the draft was set to begin and said he wasn't going to make it.  Then 15 minutes later was on his way.  He arrived an hour into the draft, but somehow still managed to win the league.  This year he got lost on the way, and called multiple times to say he was just about there.  He arrived 90 minutes late, and immediately picked up Shawn Chacon $14, Carl Everett $11, and Shannon Stewart $14.  Can he pull it off again?!!?!

* This was a first-time Rotisserie experience for Drew Wine who replaced Greg Ciambruschini.  Drew's first ever purchase was a $41 Gary Sheffield.  It looks like he got a steal in a $1 Lance Nix - the day of the draft the Rangers traded David Dellucci to the Phillies opening a starting CF slot for Nix.  On the flip-side he also drafted a $28 Todd Jones who was placed on the DL the night of the draft.  Welcome to Fantasy Baseball.

* Looks like another lost cause of a year for me, not helped by Jason Bartlett getting sent down just before the draft.  I replaced him and Brandon McCarthy ($5) with rookie Kendry Morales who hadn't been sent down yet, and Dustin Pedroia who was going to extend spring camp.  Ugh.  Nothing like starting the year with two dead spots.  To pour salt on the wound, at the end of the draft I had $8 to spend and forgot about McCarthy.  I wound up taking Ted Lilly.  Lilly is now out with a bad back, and McCarthy picked up the W in the first MLB game of the year Sunday night.
* Scott W kept A-Rod ($48) and Manny Ramirez for the second year in a row.  To top it off, he actually extended Manny's contract by a year, taking him from $41 to $46.

* Jon Perkins drafted the most expensive offensive player and pitcher - Vladimir Guerrero  ($50) and Mariano Rivera ($41).  (He also paid $42 for Hideki Matsui.)

* Draft day prices seemed even crazier than usual: $28 Milton Bradley (Perk), $37 Curt Schilling (Scott M), $38 Torii Hunter (Scott M), $30 Kevin Mench (Mark), $27 Raul Ibanez (Matt), $26 Mark Loretta (Matt), $35 Brad Wilkerson (Drew), $38 Melvin Mora (Stu), $35 Aubry Huff (Stu), $27 Javy Lopez (Dale)???????!!!

* Stu's pitching staff costs a grand total of $38 and half of that is a $19 Eddie Guardado. 

* The first players taken in the reserve draft were Brandon Wood (Rick), Andy Marte (Scott W), Alex Gordon (me), B.J.Upton ($10, Drew), Howie Kendrick (Matt) and Craig Hansen (Mark).
 
A.P. PRESS RELEASE
by Drew Gallagher, 12/16/05
FREDERICKSBURG, VA - It is with great regret that I announce the resignation of Greg Ciambruschini from the ASL. Apparently the Coco Crisp for Sammy Sosa trade did not go over well in the household and he felt a need to extricate himself from any other fantasy baseball entanglements. The man is not easily replaced but fortunately the proud franchise is being turned over to the man that Greg probably would've handpicked himself had Carrie allowed him to make any more decisions. Drew Wine, a name familiar to many of those in the league, has consented to take over a franchise that is now saved from Washington Nationals-like limbo.

Star outfielder Vernon Wells was thrilled by the announcement: "I hear the guy thinks Robinson Cano is a book by Robert Louis Stevenson, but we're just happy to have some leadership in the front office. I heard the Daley Doubles took him out to lunch this afternoon to celebrate the announcement. I just hope Johann Santana is still on the squad by later this afternoon."

Though Mr. Wine has not announced a team name, initial reports indicate that a Hokie will figure prominently in the logo.

In other league news, we are still planning on drafting in Baltimore again this year. I believe that Scott's mom's house can be a fall back option (Scott, correct me if I am wrong there) but we would like to see if there is a room or restaurant available so as not to impose on Scott's mom. Since we won't be dropping cash on the lovely erasable boards this season we could probably pay a nominal fee for the use of a room. Any ideas are certainly welcome.

And, the Yankees $1 starting centerfielder is available for the right price. The line starts behind Matt Dodge.

Thanks for your time.

Drewer
 
Year in Review
Drew Gallagher, 10/04/05
Gentlemen,

As Matt Dodge touched upon, we may have seen the dawning of a new era in drafting. Marty's strategy of not just waiting, but not showing up, until the draft was three quarters ended looks like pure genius. I only hope that the book tour for "MartyBall" next spring does not conflict with our draft date. Congratulations to the Slickers on their first ASL pennant!

On a drafting note, Mr. Malinowski wanted to duly warn the rest of the league that he will be spending his money very early next year. Quote: "You can tell those bastards that I'm going to be spending early and often. None of this waiting to the end bullshit. All my money will be gone by the time Marty shows up next year." (I guess that's not a quote but maybe more of a paraphrase.)

There was a substantial turnover in the ASL heading into 2005 and three of the four new owners were able to cash. (And the one who did not cash had major surgery soon after the All-Star break so his attention was understandably elsewhere. Probably a good thing now that he has Nick Swisher back in tow for 2006.) So congratulations to Greg, Stu and Rick.  For those of you playing at home, Stu and Rick had never participated in a fantasy baseball league prior to 2005 and Stu had 72 hours to familiarize himself with his roster and how to draft. Makes those of us who have been members for 21 years and accustomed to finishing eighth feel really good about our lives. If the geographic makeup of the league remains as it is we will again be looking to draft in Baltimore next year as long as everyone is agreeable to same. We would like to find a space/sports bar to host the event so Greg and Scott can toss out ideas when the time draws near.

And congratulations to Dale on his highest ASL finish ever. Despite the burden of the Perkins Prediction of an ASL title the squad still made things interesting for the Slickers when September opened.
On the money front, Chris is going to get the payment breakdowns to Scott in the next few days and then Scott will be issuing checks in the very near future. If anyone has unresolved debt (I don't think that applies) please take care of that immediately. And if anyone does not think they will be returning in 2006 please let us know as soon as possible so we can find a new owner. I've received a phone call from one Jonathan Finglass inquiring as to if there were any openings...

Chris will be sending out the winter surveys in a few months for your careful consideration.

Early prediction for 2006: Winterburn's squad is loaded. Early prediction II for 2006: Sammy Sosa will not be a Charm City Bandit. Early prediction for 2007: Sammy Sosa will not be a Charm City Bandit

I've got tons of mediocre starting pitching at reasonable prices so I'm willing to entertain any offers. Even my big Wang is available. (You didn't expect a final e-mail without a reference to Chien Ming did you?) The constant references to my big Wang do remind of Dale Scott's favorite King Missle song, "Detachable Penis". He'll burn you a copy if you like.

Thanks to all for their participation. I enjoyed it. And remember...Chone Figgins is a veritable god unless he meets up with the Sox in the ALCS--then he's Bret Barberie for a series.

Note to Chris, Greg and Dale--I was just kidding about Finglass.

2005 ASL Draft Day
Year #21
Saturday, April 2nd, 2005, Noon
at Scott Metcalfe's Mom's house

* April 2nd was met with torrential downpours.  Just about everyone was late.

* Marty Slickers who was pulled over for an out-of-date registration, and had his car towed away the night before on his way to the ESL draft, as of noon said he wasn't going to make it, and then 15 minutes later was on his way.  He arrived an hour into the draft and almost immediately picked up a $30 Magglio Ordonez, a $27 Shannon Stewart, a $27 Mike Mussina, and a $27 Matt Clement.

* Stu Sheetz was coming to the draft just to help and watch, but wound up getting a team of his own when Gerry Orlando bailed out on his at the last minute for the 3rd consecutive year.

* It was also the first year for Greg Ciambruschini, Rick Franz and Scott Metcalfe who were taking over for the departed Mike Drago, Pete DeCoursey and Kori Walter.  Greg had previously played in the ASL in 1996 and 1997.  Scott Metcalfe had played in the ESL for the last two years.  It was a first time Rotisserie baseball experience for Rick.
* I had over $100 left on the board while most of the league was down around $25.  I thought I knew what I was doing, but after being forced to go to $29 on Kevin Mench and $20 on John Gibbons it became clear that I had made a wee-bit of a mistake along the way.

* With A-Rod being kept by Scott W for $48, no offensive player broke the $40 barrier.  Eric Chavez (Dale) and Adrian Beltre (Matt) both went for $39.

* The highest price for a pitcher was a $40 Randy Johnson (Rick).  Curt Schilling and Octavio Dotel were next at $33.

* The first player taken in the reserve draft was Ross Gload (Scott M).  The first rookie taken was Dan Meyer with the 3rd overall pick (Stu), followed by Derrick Barton (Dale) and Eric Aybar (Mark).

* After the draft we all went to Applebee's to watch the NCAA finals.
 
Perk's Power Rankings, 2/15/05

Welcome to the initial installment of Perk’s Power Rankings for the ASL.  In an uncharacteristic effort at diplomacy, the teams are not ranked 1 through 12 but rather in little sub-groups.  At least teams 2 through 11 are.  So without further delay…

 

 

A winter of anticipation resulted in an outfield of Borchard, Damon Hollins and Todd Hollandsworth for $4 total.DALE WINS GROUP:

 

The Daley Doubles.  Only one team qualifies for this group because they are head and shoulders above the rest of the league.  Perk’s comments: “LB (stands for little bitch for those of you playing at home) is certain to win the ASL this year unless he attends the draft.  We’ll see if he can capture a little of that 2001 magic.”  (Editor’s note: 2001 was the only one of Dale’s six years in the league that he finished better than eighth.)

 

 

CHRISTMAS  SHOPPING  IN  APRIL  GROUP:

 

Of all of Mark's 2006 pitchers Scott Shields led his team in wins in 2005The Question Marks.  They feature the best keeper in Francisco Cordero and a bevy of youngsters.  Perk’s comments: “If Sammy Sosa can babysit the kiddies on his roster he should finish in the money.  Oh, and Mark, unlike Dale, would benefit greatly from attending the draft.”

 

The Malignancies.   Perk’s comments: “Chris would be poised for a title run if not for Baldelli’s offseason WiffleBall injury.”

 

The Drewers.  Perk’s comments: “Just type something about your lovechild Chone Figgins.”

 

 

CUCKOO FOR  COCO  CRISP  GROUP:

 

The Charm City Bandits.  Greg’s squad defines this grouping because they feature a bunch of solid keepers and some players with the type of upside (see aforementioned Coco Crisp) that could launch them into the money slots.  With a shorty on the way, it’s time for a payday.  Perk’s comments: “Obviously Drew’s love for Greg got him the best of the dispersal draft.”

 

Gerry’s Kids.    Solid keepers.  You just wonder about which draft strategy Scott will have to employ this season.  Perk’s comments:  “This team would look a lot better with Zach Greinke.  We’ll draw straws to see who drafts for Gerry this year.”  (Gerry is secretly hoping it is not Dale.)

Dodge Polaris.   Drago is gone but Mo Rivera is still a fine keeper on someone else’s team for a change.  Perk’s Rick came away with a bunch of players he was pleasantly surprised to get...and actually, I don't see any outrageous prices on his team - unlike everyone else's teamcomments:  “We all voted for Matt’s daughter as cheerleader so it’d be nice if he returned the kindness on draft day.”

 

Seafood Rick.   Rick has never participated in an auction style draft before.  Oh, the horror.  Perk’s comments:  “Since he’s the new guy we’ll take it easy on him in the pre-draft comments but I’m certain he will provide us with plenty of fuel for next year.  Will Pudge’s 19 homeruns hold up now that he’s off the juice?”

 


DREAMS  OF  DRAFT  DAY  BARGAINS  GROUP:

 

The Slickers.  Some of the best keepers in the league (Big Papi!) but just not enough of them unless he works some draft day magic which he has been known to do in the past.  Perk’s comments:  “Is he back from witness protection?”

 

The Rug Burns.  They had their fun last year but really need to be able to only draft for one team this season and concentrate.  They need Sheffield this season.  Perk’s comments:  “Maybe Scott should draft five teams this year since two worked the magic last year and his team really sucks this year.”

This guy's mouth was able to say "Torii Hunter, $38" 

The Huskies.   The expansion draft did not give Scott much of a pitching staff but the team is so much better than the corpse he left behind in the ESL.  Mark’s main competition for Sosa.  Perk’s comments:  “I need to mention something about Suzuki sucking or getting injured because I don’t want him to keep him.  I want him on my team.”

 

 

This is why I bring donuts to the draft.DIPLOMACY  GROUP:

 

The Perk & Beans.  Unlike Jose Canseco, Perk recognizes that there may be ramifications from a writing such as this so he’d like to self-deprecate in hopes of being able to trade with other teams this season.  But, he added:  “My team pretty much does suck.”  (Starting outfield of Reed Johnson, B.J. Surhoff, Rondell White and Willie Harris plugging the fourth hole.  Need more be said?  Yeah, how about that number one starter Mark Hendrickson?  All players available at this time.)

 
 

Apparently the key to this league is drafting two teams at one time.

Drew's Letter to John Hunt, 1/06/04
I do not know if you guys are going to invite any laypeople to the spring LABR draft, but wanted to offer up my self-serving credentials.  Actually, just wanted to share with someone that 2004 will mark the 20th anniversaries of both our Altered State League (AL only) and Eternal Squabblers League (NL only).  I'm certain there are a few leagues that have already celebrated 20 years, but I was only 15 when the ASL began and my father had to drive me to the draft since I didn't have a license.

Dad, not aware of the length of such an affair, was employed as auctioneer about halfway through and he has continued as auctioneer for almost every one of those 20 years.  Of the 12 original owners, I was the youngest by 10 years when the league started and I am now the only original member of the league that has participated for all 20 years.  (I have one championship to show for it but let's skip that part.)  I'd be willing to bet there aren't many out there who have done this for 20 years with those 20 years making up more than half their lives.
Never missed a draft. Even through college when I would sometimes have to take the train five hours to get back from college since I didn't have a car at school.

After participating in the ASL draft in March of 1985, I was so enamored with the concept that I got a group of my friends together and we started our NL only league at the all-star break of 1985.  We had a half season (doing stats by hand) and have continued with that league as well.  There are three of the original 10 owners who have competed for all 20 years. Pretty impressive in my mind.

So I offer up to you, how many other rotisserie players have been in two leagues for 20 years straight?  Trust me, this does not impress my wife.

Thanks for your time and I look forward to the fantasy baseball column starting up again soon.
