My fantasy team sucks because _________?

Boast here about all the reasons why your baseball fantasy team sucks the underside of a donkey. I'll start.


On paper, I thought I had a GREAT fantasy team. I think I already may be mathematically eliminated in my rottiserie league (which is why I prefer H2H).


7. What looked like great drafts of J.D. Drew and Mark Texeira a combined .217 BA.

6. Maggs 0-10 for the season before going out with, who knows what, a hernia? At least a few more weeks out.

5. No-mah batting .157 before the 2-3 months out groin pull.

4. Big unit -Rising ERA, with 5 homers allowed in last 2 starts, 4+ ER in each of last 3 starts.

3. Smoltz - 0-4.

2. My SV leader is Takatsu (with his 12+ ERA and 2.73 WHIP).

1. My BA leader is Corky McCorkson (.283).

I mean,



To add insult to injury, I left Carlos Zambrano on the bench last night. (8.2 IP, 5H, 1ER, 1BB)

Oh.... I stand corrected. Smoltz didn't end up being 0-4 (yet).

After 14 games my three closers have a combined 5 saves in one league and 2 in another.

Jaret Wright and his 10.05 era

No real hitting catcher.

* Sean Casey is clinically dead
* Beltran left his bat in Houston
* Craig Monroe forgot how to hit in the offseason
* Oliver Perez turned into Chan Ho Park
* Jake Westbrook has 4 starts and 4 total runs scored for him in support
* Johnny Damon has driven in a total of 4 runs

I have no players at all! People have been dragging their feet registering with our custom league, so we haven't even had our draft yet. Maybe this weekend

The biggest 2 blunders so far:

I dropped Jeff Weaver after his horrible second start (before his CG SHO) to pick up Oliver Perez.

I dropped Chris Barmes because I couldn't find room for him every day. I have Kent and O. Cabrera.

I accidentally left Chris Carpenter on the bench in our points league last night and he pitched a shutout

Craig Monroe and Sean Casey? Your team is depending on these two losers?

Sosa, Magglio, Garciaparra, Smoltz and Johnson? Tell me how 1998's been for you.

Monroe had a monster second half of the season last year. I got him in a late round pickup looking for more of the same.

ANd casey is a .300/25/100 guy. Well, he was anyway.

BTW, rabbit77, I'd take Oliver Perez over Jeff Weaver ANY day of the week. Don't let 4 starts fool you. The guy was a pitching stud last season and Jeff Weaver is.. well.. Jeff Weaver.

Ouch... and Lieber goes 8 innings for the win too. What do you have to do to get in a game on your team?

but besides for that first game, and not having a win yet.. smoltz should have given some pretty good fantasy stats.. he has pitched great in 3 straight outings.. just no run support.

Yeah it sucks because I accidently put Randy Johnson and Jamie Moyer on the bench. I swore I checked my roster this morning but did not see the ^ by any of their names. BASTARDS!

My team sucked the first two weeks (8-12) because:

1. Thome took his sweet-ass time finding his HR stroke.
2. Jorge Posada didn't contribute anything
3. Curt Schilling has sucked
4. Vazquez is pitching like he's still in New York (FINALLY a good start last outing).
5. Vernon Wells not playing as well as he's capable of.

LOL, I've been playing fantasy baseball for like 7 years, and I just learned that a ^ means the pitcher is starting that day, I usually just checked espn's scoreboard.

I'm trying to figure out how I lead the league in Ks and Ratio for pitchers, but am dead last in ERA. That has to be some bad luck, or else my pitchers are giving up mad homers and nothing else

The fact that Oliver Perez was still available in your league suggests either you are playing with a bunch of morons or you only have 4 teams in your league. How is free agent?
