Do you mean Washington's Patterson? If so, I wouldn't exactly call Patterson a stud considering he's coming off an arm injury and he only had 1 good season. I'm actually a Patterson owner and thought myself of dropping him for Perez after the 3 run first inning he put up on Saturday, but by the end of the game, he managed to convince me to keep him on for another start. :-)

It's been a week. If they're getting on your last nerve, you need a new hobby. :-b


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 ...."? :-t

HTH.


Don't take yourself so seriously, chief. Everything is in good fun. B-)

I'll be sure to try and take your advice, but maybe you should practice what you preach. ;-)

Not sure I follow you. I do know what the statement means; just not sure where it applies here. :-?

When confronted with a bevy of "Should I be worried about..." posts, a wise man once uttered some very sage advice:

Just stop.

Seriously

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. ;-D


All right i'll confess. I am second year player who won last year and am sitting in first now. Picked up Freel after 3 games after someone dropped and gave him up 2 days later. Speed is a serious issue on my team and i probably won't get him back now
A rookie mistake
