Let's play "Can you top this?"...

Postby DudeLaw » Tue Jul 03, 2007 8:50 pm

I have both Hafner and Big Papi and for the last month I've had to decide, on a daily basis, to start one or the other based on matchups. MATCHUPS! In other words "who's gonna suck less?" (lesser of 2 evils) And starting both would have meant losing H2H games, they've been THAT average. I'm dumbfounded. Anyone top it???

That's easy. I drafted Myers (mostly useless and hurt), Harden (ditto), Barrett (again mostly worthless and he's a pu$$y), Todd "WHIP/ERA Killer" Jones, Kendrick (another lengthy injury), Wainwright (man did he stink when I had him), Thome (another injury), some long term underperformers (Soriano, Bill Hall, Webb, Delmon Young), need I go on? At one time I had 4 or was it 5 DL players on my roster at one time, and we're not talking 15 day minimum DL trips, leaving me with something like 2 bench spots i could use, usually taken up by severe underperformers. I couldn't really drop anyone at the time or someone would have picked them up and stashed them away. I've picked several people up that almost immediatly got hurt. After I finally couldn't take Bill Hall I dropped him an 2 days later he was picked up by someone else the very day he started his recent tear. Pretty much for 2+ months anything that could go wrong did go wrong. I was the poster boy for Murphy's Law. Your problem seems rather trivial in comparison IMO. I'm pretty sure I didn't include everything.
