Honestly, if you are that good and confident then you should just spank them and take all their money.

I've learned that the more ass kicking you do, the more they will come back begging for more.

You think you're so good, just auto draft the whole league, and take yourself out of the trade pool too, in fact no free agent or waiver wire adds for your team, no DL spots for your team either, if someone gets hurt - tough schnizl, you run what the computer gave you and nothing more. Lets see how studly you are. :-D ;-D

(10:06:43 PM): ik you get to pick your primary starters, but do they give u back ups just in case the players u pick are taken?

Yeah, the big fall, as in autumn, like October, when I'll be collecting my winnings (my big winnings). ;-D

I reluctantly played on a league with my brother last yr, it was a H2H points league. He has never played fantasy baseball b4 only football.

I coached him through the early months and every trade except when he was too hard headed to listen to me.He started streaming pitchers and he won the league beating me in the championship. 8-o :-S :*) :-{

Why do I just feel like you're going to be all overconfident and get beat by some upstart who doesn't know what the hell they are doing?

That is what happens. I was in a money league with a bunch of idiots and still only won 1 out of 3 years (H2H).
