Most Annoying

What is the most annoying thing that can occur during your fantasy baseball league season? There are a lot of good choices but is there one thing that stands above them all?

there are worse things, but it is very annoying when a closer gets traded to be some contending team's setup man.

Seeing a team score 10+ runs and the player from that team that you own goes 0-4. Individually, these are only mildly annoying, but over the course of the entire season, the sheer amount has to make this the most annoying.

Definitely stupid injuries... Also stupid trade offers.

When teams wait until the last minute to put a guy on the DL, and in the meantime your wanted FA replacement player gets snatched up.

Struggling 12th-14th round players, especially those at premium positions; no one wants to trade for them, and they're on the razor's edge between droppable and undroppable. Will they turn it around? Who knows? Screw you, Kelly Johnson, you were on my team at least a month too long because of this.

When your starters throw 14 IP and give up 4 ER, then your relievers give up the same in 2 IP.

Staying up till 3:30 AM to grab a guy the moment he clears waivers, only to realize someone else used their waiver claim on him.

Russell Martin.

Benching a starter because you saw he was being given the day off, only to check in later and see he had a pinch-hit HR while the guy you plugged in went 0-4.

Players on the bereavement list...can't DL them, can't drop them, they just eat up space.

People who try and trade me a player who just went on the DL and it's not posted on the fantasy player info area yet. It's a low down and dirty tactic.

It is interesting to consider if its more annoying if something really bad happens once or something of a lesser degree happens a lot. If its the second option then slumping top players has to rank pretty high.

This one ranks high on my list as well. It is way more annoying than consistent bad offers IMO.
