Why does your team suck?

Postby Kingsac » Wed Jun 02, 2004 5:21 pm

For me I have had Peavy, Preston Wilson, Chavez go down with injuries. I also have had Sheff, Zito, Millwood, Chacon suck for most of this year (though they are showing signs of life -Chacon)

Also I gave up on Finley before his sip from the foutain of youth !+) .

On the bright side I did end up drafting Graves and Casey, who I have since traded for in my mind better long term players (crawford, renteria). And i still have Alou. V-Mart was also a great pick-up.

But I'm still gonna win this $hit, BIIIIAAATCH!!

I just really have no one dependable on my pitching staff. All could have solid games, or all could give up 7 runs. Each week it's a gamble as to which pitching categories I'll win...

In a six-player keeper league, I kept the following (all pre-injury, of course):

Prior
Foulke
Pujols
Garciaparra
P. Wilson
Sexson

Three of my first 4 picks in the re-draft were:

Huff
Santana
M. Giles

We have a limit on the number of free moves we can make during the season. I'm WAY past the limit, and just not willing to throw good money after bad to move from dead last to next to last by the end of the season.

Sorry, it was just time to vent.

Can I use the excuse that I'm a bad manager?
