14 days?
This is baseball season. Not off season. Not Spring training. This is basball season.
There are games every single day (except the day before and the day after the all star day). There are junkies out here who need our fix of fantasy advice and views from experts and just something to hold us until 1:05 or 3:40 or 7:05 until the games come on. 14 days is a little extravagant to wait to post another "cleat marks" or "sleeper of the week", don;t you think? Hell, in football season you guys are on top of the game. I can rely on you for a sneaky wide receiver or defense to pick up. Where are you when I am 50 points off the top of my baseball rotissary? Where are you when I need to read you type that you were wrong about The Riot and see your full appology for telling me to pick him up rather than DeRosa.

If you are all looking at federal charges for internet fraud, I can forgive you. If the police have raided your secret headquarters and found evidence of mass polygamy, you are off of the hook. But short of an ingrown eyelash causing company wide blindness or at least a pandemec of pink eye, there is no excuse for not posting a single word for 14 days.

*Please note that this is a plea for help and an explanation of gratitude for what you do and not a knock at your ambition.*

:-b Nice. Got a good chuckle from me, and I needed it. ;-D

As to Cleat Marks, that is something I am trying to do, but time constraints have prevented me from being able to do it in a timely fashion. On the football side we've got tons of members who contribute each and every single week for those pieces. I'd love to build that up on this side as well and have been trying, the results just haven't been optimal yet.

Sleepers are always tough as the writer must have thick skin. They tend to draw nothing but critics and boos because picking sleepers that are actually still available in a lot of leagues is quite tough, so it's not really a surprise people don't want to subject themselves to that.

But we're trying. I'll see about at least getting a new edition of Cleat Marks written and up as soon as I can and I'll try to get some sleeper ideas in ther for you. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
