Great article and sad but true. But, that is how you learn not to be in a league with those same guys again.

Highlights from what used to be my favorite league:

1) Jason Kendall is the first catcher taking, in the second round
2) The move was praised by two other league members
3) K Sasaki was the first second taken
4) League members call you a liar when you say hes in Japan
5) When Carlos Beltran is drafted 23rd overall (by me), draftee in postion number nine calls out "O, I didnt know he was still on the board, thats who I wanted" -- commish restarts draft
6) Tim Hudson goes in round six -- commish again restarts draft - reason "thats my favorite player, no one can draft him but me"
7)end result -- abandon draft, find new leauge

16. Players include things outside of the league in trades. Timo Perez and half a pizza for Bobby Abreu?

LOL! :-D

i got a good one.

having one guy draft twice 2 and 10th pick of a 5x5 h2h league. then after using that 10th team for awhile, trade the entire team for the team that was drafting 2nd calling it a mistake cuz they couldn't find the 10th person for the league

then an idiot dropped vernon wells, bobby abreu, orlando cabrera, and another dropping carlos lee.

wells went to guy drafting 2nd after he switched teams
abreu went to guy drafting 1st overall
cabrera went to guy drafting 2nd overall

now if this makes no sense take a look at both their lineups. oh yeah and i'm playing with top level execs and these guys are both execs :(

guy that drafted 1st
