I'm right there with you on Rentaria this year, Knapp. And Adam Dunn. Every year I tell myself I'm not going to take him no matter what, and every year I end up with him on at least one team. It's like an abusive relationship that I just can't tear myself away from. I know he loves me, and he doesn't mean to hurt me with his 0/5 wth 4 K games, it's just that, he's so big, sometimes he doesn't know his own strength. And when he drinks he does and says things that he doesn't really mean.

Ummm he is hurt already.

Mine is Sheets. I've had him on my keeper team since his breakout season. I like the pain. :,-(


Please quit spreading false information. Harden is not hurt he just had his start moved back so he could get some more rest for his tired/sore muscles. He will be fine this year, but will most definitely not be pitching any complete games anytime soon.

For me it's Howie Kendrick. I've had him since him call up, and every year at the draft I predict his breakout. He's been good in spurts, but just can't stay healthy. He's been very good so far this year, but he's hurt again!! :-t :~(

In the future I would really appreciate it if you don't accuse me of posting false information:
Rotoworld wrote:The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Rich Harden was scratched from Tuesday's start with back soreness "in the lat area." The Chronicle goes on to say that the injury is believed to be minor, possibly stemming from the team's long flights to Japan last month. Thankfully it's not an arm injury, but we'll believe that it's minor when Harden makes his scheduled start against Cleveland on Saturday. Chad Gaudin will start in his place on Tuesday, with LHP Greg Smith reportedly set to be called to replace Justin Duchscherer on Wednesday.


You don't get your start pushed back unless it is an injury. It might be minor but it is still an injury and with Harden's track record, it shoudln't come as a shock if this is more than what they are leading you to believe.

I have to go with JBay again. For the past two years I have had to deal with clicking on his news and notes to find out he is in an O for 2 years slump and to make matters worst his yahoo picture has that "I just had sex with your sister" smirk on his face...

Top ten closers. Every year I tell myself that I'm going to rely on the waver wire and closer injuries/implosion.

Lo and behold, I end up with Saito this year :-[

How do I always end up with J.D Drew?
You can't tell when he's going to start or be benched, he goes on crazily long slumps, and when he does something huge it's usually from my bench.
But every year he drops low enough for me to consider it reasonable :-C
