Great... I grabbed TEx in my only potential early draft pick this year.... instead of Ortiz....

Did I mess up ln my pick?
Take Care,

Weeks, Fielder, Ryan Howard

Dump them all

I give my players one week to perform and then I pick up wiley veterans for bombs like David Eckstein.

People need to stop panicking


haha yeah.. people are spazzing out and trading Texy, Howard, Fielder, Utley, etc. cause they have been sucking for a week. Its one week guys, calm down. We have seen many players who are in the same situation last year and turn out to be amazing at the end.

It's all over this site. People crying about their players after one week. They should all be banned. ;-) ;-) :-D

You non Teixeira owners can laugh but when your early rounders start choking it is frusturating.

I agree. I've said it before and I'll say it again. In my roto league, I have two homeruns. TWO. I have Aram, Tex, Utley, Bonds, Sizemore, Mauer etc-and TWO homeruns-and only one stolen base! There are players out there who have more homeruns and stolen bases than my entire team! I know it's early, but I HATE getting into a hole. :~(

I'm sorry, but I feel better now. I just had to vent to my friends in the cafe ;-D

What if by the end of April he had no HR's? Would we all be saying the same thing? What if by the end of May, he had 1 or 2? Would you still be sticking him in your lineup everyday, and would it affect his draft value for next year?

Just using Tex because of the thread, but I've always wonderd about this with any 1st rounder. How long would you stick with him?

What if A-Rod were to have just a horrible year this year? Still an early 1 st rounder next year? Would he be in your starting lineup all season?


good question. in recent seasons I have owned Jeter when he went thru his infamous slump, and I owned hafner last year when he sucked lemons the first month or two. needless to say, they both turned out ok, so at this point I'm beyond panicking if my players don't do well at first. and I say this even though I also owned beltre last year (hey, I still won the league).
