Fantasy owner implodes, fires players

Postby Brade » Wed May 14, 2008 4:21 pm

So I've been in the lead most of the season in my espn 10-team league. But just the other day I lost a few places due to a few idiots on my pitching staff. Still steaming after three more brutally horrible outings from Cueto, Weaver, and Buchholz and finding myself in last place in the ERA category, I dumped all three of these nincompoops to waivers, picking up John Danks, Rich Hill, and Santiago Casilla (perhaps dumped for Kershaw soon). Am I loopy? After all, Weaver pitched shutout ball his next time out--however, it's important to note he would NOT have done this if still on my roster.

So has anyone else had a case of roster-rage this season?

Well I've got Sabathia, Peavy, and Harang in one of my 12 team roto leagues and my wins, K's, ERA, and WHIP are all ranked third to last.

Thats not that bad of a firing. Cueto is one bad start away from WW, Bucholz is DL, and Weaver is an unpredictable mess. An epic implosion slash firing would have been Verlander, CC, and Fattie Bo Battie.

In a 10 team league there is such an abundance of pitching, I have no problem with what you did.
