What are you complaining about?


I got to the bottom of page 3, when someone said "Pujols." Figuring that this poor attempt at a joke would go unnoticed, I went to page 4 only to see a few more joke responses. I'm not hugely upset, just a little bugged that people can't just answer seriously.

As much as it bothers me when someone makes a thread in the 2nd week of the season saying "Whats going on with PLAYER X," making a mockery of that person, and their questions is just as bad, IMO.

The bottom line is we're a month into the season. Unless a guy has shown injury, perceived permanent lineup order shift, or something else of that nature, there are very few reasons to do anything other than to divide your original projections into monthlies, and remove what you set aside for April and plug in what he's done this far. Beyond that, there's no conversation to have here for at least another month. Hell, that method is what Prospectus does mid-season.


I really just started the thread to generate discussion. Sorry if that annoys the regulars around here. I'll be more careful next time.

No, no. Not the intention of my post in the slightest. In fact, there were some nice names listed at the beginning, and then some fun was had and it was all good. Then people get all huffy puffy, though, and things go downhill quickly. You post whatever you like, but in doing that, you have to be able to shoulder both positive and negative responses. Everything in my post is true, yet was in no way a shot at you. Doesn't make anything I said false, though. I was just laying my opinion out there for those who were getting all worked up that what amounted to a list of every uninjured player who has had a slow April, was interrupted.
