2 start idiots

Postby agchris02 » Mon Apr 11, 2005 8:08 pm

Im in a public pay league (cbs), which uses a weekly H2H format, so 2 start pitchers DO have some value, but Im curious if anyone else has observed the following parculiarities:

The first player is the one picked up, the second the one who was dropped -- and no this wasnt just one team, there are 5 teams (out of 10) represented below:

K Rogers / M Lawton
M Hampton / E Renteria (had M Tejada, but really)
R Hernandez / B Bonds
B Hasley / J Giambi
C Young / C Figgins
K Wells / T Glavine
A Eaton / K Mench
Z Day / M Alou
G Chacin / J Weaver (DROP WEAVER FOR THIS GUY?)
K Saarloos / D Baez
M Marooth / L Ford
J Mays / M Ordonez
J Towers / J Bonderman


my current WW claim list is a mile long

who does this? does anyone else have a problem with this many morons? Is there a fantasy rehabilition center I can send these buffons to so I dont have to rip my hair out deciding if I should drop L Berkman (my worst OF) for B Bonds or not? Do I drop M Clement for Bonderman? (think im going to) --

Has anyone else noticed the WAY over emphasis on two start Ps? (Im actually making trades that are stupid - like Gagne, Buerhle, and MCab for Santana because I CAN)

anyways, just wanted to rant and see if anyone else dealth with morons dropping good players just so they can get two starts in one week

Why are you complaining? Go win the league and come back and tell us about it. If you lose, then the morons got the best of you.

Looks like you play with blithering idiots. In shallow leagues I could maybe see some those guys let loose but certainly not Renteria, Bonds, Baez and Ordonez. And certainly not for some of those scrubs being picked up like Maroth and Chacin.
