getting real frustrated with my bad luck

Postby Brandaddy » Sun Aug 13, 2006 4:20 pm

my fantasy team is 5 - 13 and there is no way i should be, it is starting to make me seriously mad every week it seems like the guys im playing are having the best weeks ever. im in H2H and i have the 2nd most points for but for some reason i just get unlucky and face a team that blows me out. i have 6900 points against me and the next closest team has 6100 points against, some guys have all the luck.
I love my Diamondbacks!

Tell me about it, I can't buy a freaking win. Everytime my starter pitches a great game, the offense won't score for him, the bullpen will blow the lead, manager will take him out in the middle of the inning, etc. :-t :-t . I seriously have the worst luck when it comes to Wins.

I beg to differ. This describes my fantasy pitching season this year. In fact, just last night Maine lost a "W" when the MR who relieved him allowed the inherited runners to score before settling down !+) !+) !+) !+)

Two weeks ago, I was tied for the division, looked untouchable in terms of pitching - then Liriano goes down, Mussina, CZambrano, Jer Weaver, King Felix, don't win a single game (Jer Weaver finally won one, of course against my Yankees) and I lose 2 in a row and now face the team who was tied for me for the division(he went 1-1 during that time and now has the lead). Of course, he can get 10 starts out of his pitchers to my 6 this week ...........

And yes, this is H2H - so this is the price I pay for being able to lose any given week .........

ive been pretty lucky. it seems like every time i have a bad week, the other guy is a little worse. every time i have a great week, the other guy has a good one but i still win since i had that good of a week.


1st place ftw.

Same here. I can't buy a break, and I get all the bad breaks. Just one example: With a slumping offense through the first 2-3 months of the season, I finally get a big game from one of my guys, with a 5 RBI performance. Oh joy, my opponent has Brian Giles and he goes off for 7 RBI, smothering my guy's awesome game. It's just the way it has been this season.. no breaks!

I've sucked it up and kept working and waiting. My hitting has been inconsistent, and I've had the worst hitting stats in the league. I've somehow managed to find to fight through it all and move up to third place, although the top 2 teams are quite solidified in that order.

I'm a friendly, humourous trash talker(though sometimes I pester people in a friendly manner - I only play a buddies league), so I haven't been able to unleash the smack talk very much this year without the performances to back it up. You can't really say much from the bottom of the standings! It has definitely been a looooong year :-°
