Top Ten Signs You're Obsessed With Fantasy Baseball

Postby Arlo » Mon Jun 09, 2003 7:13 pm

In the last Point of View Column, Paul Worstell talked about his fantasy addiction, but it looks like Paul isn't the only one who knows the symptoms when he sees them. This time around, Matthew Wiesenfeld offers a list of the top ten signs of Fantasy Obsession. Recognize any? :-D

Feel free to add your own favorite symptoms right here, or simply let Matthew know what you think of his article. Hopefully, this will be the first of many...

Here are some symptoms:

-- You're RELIEVED when your pitcher is on the mound, and his defense makes an error with men on base and two outs. No more earned runs!

-- You know you're addicted to fantasy baseball if you have any idea who Aquilino Lopez is.

#12

You have a SP on your fantasy team who is opposing your favorite team in real life and you hope the game ends 1-0 in the 10th inning so you can get 9 innings of 0.00 era and still have your favorite team win.

I do this one all the time!

When checking box scores online you constantly dream up improbable scenarios such as team A makeing a 5 run bottom of the eight inning comeback where your batter gets a grand slam stopping your opponent from collecting the win as his pitcher was hurling for team B, then team B reclaims the lead in the top of the 9th allowing your closer from team B to steal the win.

You track tommy john surgery dates of pitchers so you can stash them on the DL 12 months after surgery just in time to reap the benefits of their typical 14-15 month full recoveries.

Your estatic the Yankees return Brandon Claussen to the minors so you can carry him as a free keeper not counting against your active MLB player keeper limits.

You have wasted a DL spot on Contreras virtualy the entire year because Weaver has been so bad.
