Sonavabench!

Exclamation when one sees that a player on their bench has had a monster day. "I started Conor Jackson over Adam LaRoche today. So what does LaRoche do? Hit two home runs. Sonavabench!" Now tell us yours.

So I keep starting Nyjer Morgan for steals and he does nothing. Finally sit him down with Yadier Molina catching (who's supposed to be tough to run on) and he gets a steal while his team is down by 3. And if I put him back into the lineup tomorrow, he's gonna be useless again.

Worse yet, I went with F Lewis at Coors thinking he's gotta be due. How does anybody drive in one run with 24 hits? By striking out every time, that's how.

Very close to punting him. Those 20 steals from last year is what's keeping my finger off the eject button.

Damn it looks like Dye is this year's Mclouth for me. Last two benchings, 2 homers 4 RBI.

First time it was his first game back so not gonna worry too much about that. This time I need sbs more than homers so I started J Hairston instead. Turns out I could have put him at SS over Hardy as the MIL game got PPD.

Owning Vazquez and Jurrjens isn't gonna be that fun this yr, is it? LOL. Put Soriano in there.

Yeah, PPD killed me in leagues too. I started Bourn over Hawpe for steals and Hawpe homers and Bourn is postponed.

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.

After I sat Stewart during his 2 HR game, Ichiro didn't want to be outdone. I sat him due to pretty bad numbers against Lester. Four homeruns on my bench this week from two guys.

Had a choice between J Hairston or Coghlan to replace Weeks. Went with Coghlan vs. Garland.

Of course, Hairston homers against Hamels.

Yeah, Davis killed me too on my bench. I'm also a Yankee fan so double the kill.

And for the record, KHRis Davis is amazing.
