Posted September 14, 2014 by Anonymous

Posted September 3, 2014 by Josh Johnson

The Peakers have been a savage disappointment. We selected this team based on the fact that we saw them producing more power than they showed the last season. We knew guys like Troy Tulowitzki and Will Venable were gambles, we’re just glad our wallets didn’t suffer the same kind of negative totals.
