10 QUESTIONS: Killboy’s Debut

After watching the NFC tear the AFC apart in the 1st Half of the Pro Bowl this evening, I decided to call our resident Betting Expert for his take on some Super Bowl Props.

Mike: Killboy? What are you doing?

Killboy: Uhm, at my girlfriend’s grandmother’s house.

Mike: What the —- are you doing there?

Killboy: Moved out of my apartment, but the new place isn’t ready. So I moved in here for a month.

Mike: Are you serious? What are you all doing right now, watching Dean Martin Show re-runs or the Pro Bowl?

Killboy: Uhm, To Catch a Predator.

Mike: ARE YOU SERIOUS!?!?!

Killboy: (Laughing) Yep!

Mike: Ok, let’s change the subject.

Alright, Killboy. I have $1,000 to place some bets. This is your debut to show the world your skillz. Ten questions for you – answer immediately.

Killboy: LET’S DO THIS SH-T!

1.Packers are favored by 3. Who you like? Gimme the Steelers with the points.

2. Over/Under at 45: Gimme the OVER.

3. Coin toss: Tails.

4. First TD of the game: Rodgers to Jennings.

5. Safety, Yes or No: Yes.

6. Over/Under is 2.5 that will Joe Buck will mention “Brett Favre” during the broadcast: OVER! Buck makes me nauseous.

7. Fergie will wear pants or a skirt: Skirt.

8. Color of Gatorade that will be dumped on winning coach: Orange.

9. MVP will thank who first: Teammates.

10. Final score. GB 28-27.

Alright, Killboy. We’ll see if you still have a job here come Monday the 7th. OMG! This dude is such a pervert! Alright, man. I gotta go.

Napoli to Arlington: The Fallout

As Napoli gets passed around like the village bicycle once again, what does this mean for all parties involved?

TEXAS:

Mike Napoli IMO rockets up the C rankings. Why? This guy can hit HR on the Moon and now he heads to the friendly confines of Rangers Ballpark. He might even bat higher than .260 this year too. To go along with 30 bombs and the opp to get tons of R and RBI in that lineup, Napoli could wind up being a Top 5 Catcher. Yeah, I said it. TOP 5 CATCHER!

Neftali Feliz I believe is locked in now as the closer. Silence the crowd that wants him in the rotation. Feliz will be elite once again.

Yorvit Torrealba will back Napoli up – well, he’ll be oohing and ahhing watching from the bench.

TORONTO:

Frank Francisco heads to Minimal Fantasy Valueville in Toronto. I guess Frank Frank could get a shot to close, but I’m not banking on it.

J.P. Arencibia is relevant once again. He’s Napoli-lite, but will have to fight off the other-other Molina. Take a flier on him – he could be Napoli, or he could be Iannetta…
