Can anyone find a worse FBB manager than this guy?

The new fantasy profile feature on Yahoo is great. You can tell at a glance how competitive members in your league have been in previous years.

I've come across one guy who has played in 24 5 x5 12 team public leagues for the past 3 years (8 a year) and has never finished better than 6th in any of them.

His first draft this year went like this.

Miggy Cabrera
K-Rod
Nathan
Street
C.Cordero
Freddy Garcia
Buehrle
Peralta
Guardado
Floyd
Francouer
I-Rod
Loretta
Overbay
E.Santana
Gomes
Lowe
Barmes
Wily Mo Pena
J.Hermida
F.Thomas

4 closers in the first 5 rounds. I'm guessing he hasn't improved very much.

Anyone worse than this clown out there?

Yeah, or flat-out mocking. I remember last year I was in a public league with a guy who's team name was something like, SN3_Team2. I asked him about it in the draft and he said he was doing like 25 mocks before the season! 8-o

As he got Hermida in the 20th, the rest of the league?

It looks like it was probably auto-drafted.

Before reading your post, I was going to answer with either Sammy Sosa or Jose Lima but then I read further and saw you meant fantasy owner not fantasy player.

Aren't we the little yahoo fantasy baseball detective.

If you looked at my fantasy NASCAR results for the past 3 years, you'd see the same kind of results, and please oh please don't look at my fantasy golf and curling results.
