Sounds like it to me....not that there's anything wrong with that. O:-)

In a 14 team league, you have to pull all the stunts.

Hey, bottom line is that he has him and you don't. Don't be bitter, adjust.

Just in case anyone is debating between Flores and Tavarez, keep in mind that Tavarez was unavailable in the 9th as Isringhausen relieved him.

Let's hope you get Tavarez and he steps in as closer so that you can make fun of whoever picks up Flores in your league.

Kolb doesn't save. Pick up Tavarez and Reitsma.

It was moved in to the Game Commentary forum. I don't agree with the move though, considering it's extremely fantasy relevant. Now there's this thread though, so I guess that's all that matters.


Well, we do have a player updates and injury forum, and a live game forum, I'd say there's plenty of relevant places to talk about a player's injury that currently happened other than the Leftovers forum, wouldn't you? ;-)

I picked up Reitsma tonight too. Same thing as with Tavarez and Flores - Reitsma had already pitched by the time Kolb needed to be rescued.

I realize that Mad....but then again, you can't deny that this is by FAR the most widely checked forum. And when something as significant as this comes up, I don't see a problem having a thread in here telling us about it. I know where you're coming from, but this is one where the rules should be bent IMO. Not very often does a stud closer go down to injury, so it's just one thread per couple months. Why is this any different than the Nomar thread that stuck around here for a while?

It doesn't matter which forum is the most checked, things go where they belong. If everyone would start using the forums the way they are laid out to be used, then there wouldn't be a "most popular" forum. They would all be important and it would make the site a whole lot easier to navigate.

Posting 15 threads in the wrong forum about the same exact topic will do nothing but make things bad for everyone. Notice the HammyLock that's been happening? I could have done that to every thread about Izzy, but instead, I moved them just like I moved all the Nomar threads. ;-) You just didn't see the Nomar ones as they came out. B-)

Life would be so much easier for everyone, if everyone simply read the forum descriptions and posted accordingly. :-°
