Every year, leagues are lost in the first few weeks of the season because owners panic and drop stud players from their roster who get off to a slow start. They then spend the rest of the year regretting it while someone else benefits from their impatience. The season is 162 games long and every single player will have both hot and cold stretches. Considering most leagues start 9 offensive players and at least 7 pitchers, wouldn't it make sense that at least some of your players will start off cold?
Of course veteran fantasy players already know this, but for those new players, this couldn't be more valuable advice. Be the guy that wins the league based on other people's impatience, don't be the guy that loses it because of your own.
well I dropped Phillies Pitcher Patterson for Oliver Perez...maybe it was a panic move but I remember holding onto a guy over Carpenter the year he broke out and it was a costly mistake....so you dont want to just sit on fringe players either.

Alfonso Soriano and Andruw Jones are really, REALLY getting on my last nerve! These two "STUDS" have combined for the following numbers:
51 at bats
It's been a week. If they're getting on your last nerve, you need a new hobby.
Far from true. I'm owning people right now in my roto league because my pitching has been SUPER SOLID (knock on wood), and despite their extremely poor starts, I'm still leading my league in RBI's and 3rd in runs scored. If these two can start playing the way AS and AJ should be performing; my overall lead would be far more then the already comfortable 8pts it is.
THAT is why they are on my last nerve. That coupled with the fact that a lot of the times they have truely faltered, there have been men on base or in scoring position.
And by the way, playing the "righteous card" on a message board is lame. Did you not see that I preceeded the comment by saying, "I agree you need to have patience and that I woulnd't fathom trading either one of them ...."?
I am a New York Jets, New York Mets, and New York Knicks fan. I know misery like few other sports fans know ...
