Is there any fun...

Postby ChipperJonesFanatic » Mon Apr 09, 2007 4:28 pm

Is there any fun at all in ESPN leagues? I am in a standard 5x5, 10 team league and I am absolutely owning people right now.

Here is my team

C: McCann
1B: Lee
2B: Kinsler
3B: Atkins
SS: Rollins
OF: Guerrero
OF: Crawford
OF: DYoung
Util: CJones
Be: Teahen
Be: LaRoche

SP: Hernandez, Hill, Young, Harden, Myers, Weaver
RP: Wagner, Nathan, FCordero, Broxton

In the past two days someone has dropped Dye for Byrnes, Mussina for Greinke, Schilling for Lilly, and Sheffield for Wells.

I also have a claim out for Figgins.

I want to pick up Sheffield and Dye at least, but the question is:

Are these leagues any fun? I could do a expansion draft (LoL) and end up with a more solid team then half of the guys.

You're a week into the season. Stop patting yourself on the back.

Just like anywhere else..... Yahoo, ESPN, CBS.... if you join public leagues you "generally" won't have many competitive and/or knowledgable owners in the league. You now have learned, even if you win this league, its kind of a waste of time and not very fun!

What the hell is Wells doing on the WW?

Must be fun playing with your mom, Uncle Al, the weird old man down the street, the 2nd grade twins and 3 inmates from the asylum up the street.

You're my hero ;-D Good luck!

No. Sheffield for Kip Wells.

I thought that one, non-keeper casual league would at least be fun. I guess not.
