With V-Mart, Chavez, Wells, Matsui, and Foulke...I usually curse every time they step to the plate. And that's before they strike out looking with RISP.

The one thing I do hate is when there is one out with a man on first, first and second, or bases loaded, and the batter before your guy gets up hits into a oudble play. This seems to happen almost everytime when I'm watching GameChannel. That pisses me off.

I'd go w/ 10-20 a night... Most of it is reserved for the following:

8th inning scoring to make a save out of the question
Closers blowing saves for my Starters
and seeing high-scoring games where....
A. My player goes 0-4
B. My player is benched
C. I left my player on the bench (yes I curse the player for making me have to bench him)

Every time my pitcher doesn't throw a strike, every time my hitter takes a strike, and the obvious bad result. I curse too many times to count for certain.

Nice f'ing poll you got here.

DAMN IT UMP that was a STRIKE! :-b (Bedard is pitching)

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

Chavez up against Chan Ho Park with the bases juiced. Goes down on 3 pitches looking.

I curse far too many times to count. I think my neighbors downstairs think I have Tourrette's Syndrome. O:-) There's a lot of aggravated screaming, too. :-b But that just makes the good moments that much more poignant. :-D

All I gotta say is: Foulke, Kolb, and Graves. Now that's a lot of cussing.

With that said, way too many times to count. :-b


8-o

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


Then I guess that's me :-D . Every little screw up gets yelled at. The biggest one I have is when one of my hitters has a runner at 3rd with less than 2 outs and fails to drive him in. I turn into a cussing machine at that point. :-[
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.
