Last year I dropped Beltre at the all-star break. Yahoo put up one of those yellow message things that said he needed surgery on his heel. I already had Rolen, so I dropped Beltre. Now that's a dumb move.

Some guy in a TSN league dropped Mora and Furcal yesterday.
I had #12 on the WW and missed out. :~(

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Guy in my 14-team league last year dropped Dunn the first week ... then he cleared waivers and I got him for nothing.

No biggies yet this season (though time will tell); JWright and Finley just got dropped yesterday.

I'm sorry could you speak in to my good ear? I was listening to highlights of Utley so far this year in only 5 less AB's with better numbers. Ahem. ;-) (I know it's early but I couldn't resist jumping on your feelings of guilt) ;-)

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

LOL, I think we're going to be competing for battle of the worst busts to be honest...both guys are pretty much worthless.

Are there any openings in your league for next year?

Yeah but you also drafted Crisp who's looking solid so far.

Don't be jealous, he'll be solid all season. Go back to drafting Sosa in round 7. ;-)

I dont know -- its a random pay cbs league (pay to enter, first place gets money) -- i dont know anyone in the league, I have determined that there are currently only two competent owners and its going to take horrible luck for us not to play each other in the finals
