Man, add another bullet point to the list of what separates fantasy experts from casual players. Benching Miguel Cabrera or Soriano for Griffey or Gordon? Are you kidding me?? Benching Magglio for BILL HALL?! And someone wanted to bench Holliday? Seriously, I just don't have words to describe how idiotic it is to try to perfectly time "hot" and "cold" streaks. You don't even realize a player is on a cold streak until a week into it, and by the time you notice and decide to bench him, he gets hot again and reverts back to his historical performance. Same as a hot streak but reverse.
This isn't much different than the stock market where any smart market analyst worth anything would tell you to never try to time the market, and buy and hold has always proven to be the best strategy.
Are you guys also benching Sabathia, Burnett, Myers, and Oswalt for Bannister, Redding and Livan Hernandez?
