?Where is your loyalty?

Postby FREAKZILLA » Thu Feb 27, 2003 11:01 am

How does everybody feel about this? Do you root for your fantasy team over your favorite major league team or vice versa? If your fantasy SP is going against your favorite team, who do you root for? If your fantasy closer comes in the 9th against your favorite team do you want the save? Does your competitive juices overcome your team loyalty? I know mine does.

I always want my favorite pro team to win. The only thing i do ask is when something happens against my team I always hope that its my fantasy player who does it. Makes it easier to handle. Actually, it can alleviate some of the aggravation with watching your team give up runs or get shut down.

Being in an NL-only league it seems like I always have someone going against the Cubs. 99% of the time I pull for the Cubs. That 1% of the time I root for my fantasy player is when the Cubs are down by a bunch, the bases are loaded, and my guy is at bat. In cases like that I root for my fantasy player. If I have a pitcher starting against the Cubs, I hope for a low scoring game that the Cubs win.
From the official rulebook of baseball: "Baseball is a game played between two teams of nine players each." Therefore, baseball is a game played only in the National League.

when the braves are hitting against one of my starting pitchers on another team then I always root for the braves to win 1-0. That way I get good whip/era/ks anyway.

You can't help but pull for the home team. I don't mind if my closer blows a save against the M's. But at the same time it just makes you feel a little better if its one of your fantasy players that ends up killing your home team.

I find myself rooting for Fantasy Players - and whoever the Braves are playing :-B

Like Trev - I find myself doing the old - OK, now you can hit a HR (fantasy team player name entered here), because noone is on base and my Starting PItcher is out and can't get the win! - It's called Fantasy baby - live one :-D

It's sad but I get more joy out of my fantasy team even though I love my Mariners. I feel like my fantasy team is MY team. I own it and manage it. It's really kinda lame of me, but I'm sure many of you know what I'm talking about.

In a perfect world my M's win while my fantasy guys on the other team do well anyways.
