10-20.

Pretty much one curse for each earned run (last night, I was a sailor thanks to Kevin Brown's 8 ERs), and a curse for the following stats:

once per CS, once per out with RISP, once per blown save, and 3 times for each 0/5. That usually equates to about 10-20 per night. :-b

I cuss every time one of my hitters gets out and I cuss my pitchers for every single hit or walk they give up.

With that said, way too many times to count. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

8-o

Now that's a demanding owner. You are pretty much the George Steinbrenner of the fantasy world.

Some of my teams really are sucking now. I need to bring on the swear jar
My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

LOL and I agree. They score 11 and he goes 0-4 (again).

I mainly curse when they give up an ER, blow a save, or when they come up with men on base and fail to do anything. If they're going to be 1 for 4, get the hit with the bases loaded and go 0 for 3 with no one on.

I will also curse any closer who gives up a lead when one of my pitchers is on the line for a W as well as any manager who won't let one of my SB threats try and steal - I always root for a DP in hopes that next time, they'll send him.

Generally works out to be in the 10-20 range.

Too many times to count, especially if you include cursing at myself for having good production sitting on my bench while my starters are stinking it up.
