Don't have a suggestion, per se, but there has to be a character (TV, movie, whatever) that epitomizes the [shrug shoulders] "who cares?" attitude exhibited by that scourge of fantasy baseball...the absentee manager.

Al Bundy?
Homer Simpson?
Jeff Spicoli?

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.

Nice! Now, how do we apply that?

I'm losing to Claude Rains and when I look in the mirror I see Bela Lugosi.

Haha. I wonder how Claude Rains and Bela would feel about being mentioned in the same thread as Soulja Boy.
