WWR 85 that is, to have a PERFECT Team

Nobody, and I mean nobody, comes into our house and pushes us around. Nor do they invade our message boards with stupid posts that will be edited out before anyone reads them. Why are you trying to get under his skin on a message board? Just go beat him up.

My "sources" tell me that $85 mil was the winning bid on Daisuke Matsuzaka. :-)

Worst thread EVER, hilarious though!

First BUTT of 2007!

I haven't visted these boards in over a year so I figured I should bring the classic back to the top. I believe the thread is almost 6 years old now!

I can say one thing with confidence - $85 million IS NOT the magic number for Rotohog or Dice-K.

However, it MIGHT be the magic number for Zambrano!

If only the Orioles had $85 million more, they might be able to compete in the AL East. 85 that is, to have a PERFECT Team.

I tried to stop myself from posting this, but I couldn't resist.

$85 Million may buy you the perfect team, according to Ira, but $85 Million Will Buy You Nothing at the University of Wisconsin

Last time I posted in this topic was in #578... Two years and 20 posts? Hahaha.

So to answer #594, which was posted almost a year ago, Ira the Albertan kid has gotta be 20 this year. I remember he joined the hockey board when he was like 12 and he used his dad's name to win his dad a wide-screen TV or something in the CBC hockey pool or something. Damn that was a long time ago.

Judging from the viewing statistics for this thread, I see a lot of people are still checking it once in a while.

Just trying to up my coolness factor for Motley Crue (see posts 453 and 456). As someone who read this post the day it was written, I smile every time it comes back.

I also feel old when I think back to how young I was when Ira made the post!

On July 16, this thread will be 3000 days old. That's old. There have been 604 posts and 1721 ratings and 1254 views from 617 users. Well, that's not entirely true - the views are since March, 2007, when this thread was almost 6 years old. I'd guess we're near 10,000 views. When it started, ARod was playing his first games for the Rangers and the Mets were the defending NL champs. And Mark McGwire was the all-time home run champ.

Apri 29, 2003 in baseball:

First time Ichiro and Godzilla played against each other in MLB

First time Dusty Baker managed against the Giants after leaving them (note: Sammy vs Bonds match up with Kerry Wood on the mound for Chi)

And on April 29 17 years prior to this Roger Clemens struck out 20 Seattle Mariners for the Red Sox.

April 29, the original date of this thread is possibly one of the most important days in baseball (and fantasy) history!

So, I just read there'll be no more TSN baseball.

I guess you can now pick the perfect fantasy team with only $0 million. That is, to have a PERFECT Team.

I need to chime in on this thing every few years just to remember the good times. And to remember that I used to be quite young when this thread originated, but am not so young any more. This thread started before 9/11!

Vlad Guerrero to the Orioles for 2011

This transaction likely bumps the Orioles' payroll over... [wait for it...] $85M.

Glad to know they have what it takes to be the perfect team in `11. I'll ice the champagne, you go ahead and schedule the tattoo session.

Do we need to adjust $85 mil for inflation? Its been at least 11 years.

I believe the amount should be updated to $108,845,621.47

this according to the inflation rate change over the last 11 years.

Since we're only playing 37% of the season does that mean we only need 31.45 mil?

And how the hell did this thread get to be nearly 20 years old? How have we been around that long?
