Everybody talks of these crazy people dropping stars...

Postby Baseballer02 » Tue Apr 13, 2004 1:08 pm

All the talk of fellow league members dropping slumping star players, but noone great has fell into my hands on any of my 8 teams. The best players I've seen dropped so far are Dunn and Burrell. :~(

You like playing against morons?

thats still pretty good.... no one in any of my leagues has dropped anyone who shouldnt be dropped. but i like that cos it just makes you feel better when you do good cos you know you didn't win just cos someone dropped Berkman.... ;-)

Don't like playing with morons, but I'm always up for improvement. Now here's to hoping Sabathia and Willis both get great starts under their belts this week so I can trade them while they're hot.

Most of the time, and I stress most, those things happen in Yahoo public leagues. It does happen in other leagues but not by astute fantasy owners.

Recently these players were dropped in my 12 team league:

Mora
H. Matsui
Catalanotto
D. Roberts
Byrd

It's not the greatest, but I think I will drop badelli for Matsui, even though he has been cold recently.

In one of my leagues, people keep dropping good players too. And there are some dumb trades. I got Jose Reyes for Tony Womack.
