Hah it IS pretty funny :-D He likely doesn't have a big pool of baseball knowledge yet, so he's making changes as he finds out things. He probably also didn't have a great draft ;-)

There's a guy in our league that does that too. He'll even pick up some waiver guy and then 10 minutes later, put him back on waivers to pick up the guy he dropped in the first place! I think some people count add/drops as winning a category. It drives me nuts. :-t

That is why Schitzophrenics should not play fantasy sports.

First season of fantasy baseball, I made 10 transactions before the season started, because I was new and wasn't sure of how most things went. People thought I was crazy.

Some people have major problems with impulsuive activity. I used to do that with minor leaguers a couple of years back.

I would be up in my draft (minor league) and read 1 article about how over the past week JJ Hardy has been hitting the lights out of the ball and I would rush over and take him right away. 3 hours later I would read another article about how Joey Votto is leading the Reds farm system in HRs and average and he'd be the guy I get over Hardy. And so on.

Basically I went by any single asource I found online. You know those yahoo things that pop up as "notes"? My first year of fantasy baseball, I would pick up guys based on those just because they'd say over the past 2-3 games the guy was hot. (Crazy thing is, I WON my first ever public league, autodrafted, without knowing anything about many baseball players. I didn't even know half my team and ranked frank thomas so high I got him in the 5th!)

I think my lineuop was something like this:

Piazza
F.Thomas
Ray Durham
Eric Hinske
Derek Jeter
Carlos beltran
Lance Berkman
Pedro
Smoltz

don't remember the rest. I won the league 5-4 in the championship because of pedro's low WHIP

I almost always pick up closers and a SP from the wire. I purposely don't draft a great last SP, knowing someone will come out of nowhere and produce like a top 10 round pick...

in my pub league a couple guys are doing the same things. I think one guy has added and dropped taveras three times.
