Premature defenestration.

Pronunciation: \(ˌ)dē-ˌfe-nə-ˈstrā-shən\
Function: noun
Etymology: de- + Latin fenestra window
Date: 1620

1 : a throwing of a person or thing out of a window
2 : a usually swift dismissal or expulsion (as from a political party or office)

I also just used this in the comments regarding the Dodgers pitching Kuo in the 8th instead of the 9th, in response to Steve's comment, "Why Now Kuo. The Dodgers reliever who comes into the game earlier than you expect him to."

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Apparently it's too racy to post in the comments- for some reason it seems to have been blocked.

Uh, that would be a 'Billy Bob'.

Billy Bob Thornton dropped (they were married) Angelina Jolie before she got hot.

Hmm... I think she was always hot.

@royce! -- Sorry, it must've and if the spam filter grabs it, I don't see it.

hmm, how about:

Butterflied - When you dump a caterpillar of a player only to watch him soar to great heights. Even more infuriating when it's a set-up man who becomes a closer.

C'mon, now, you're thinking of 'butterfly' like the tattoo on your lower back instead of butterflying like a chicken on the grill.
