thats what I thought, but Sabathia could go on a tear pretty soon, and Wright is still doing producing. Not in the way that I thought, but , still... What do you think Grey?

Looks good for you.

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.

His team looks like this. He is in last place by a long shot. Is it worth to try and counter for a little bit more? Could Lowe rebound? Right now I don't like where he's at. Should I counter for Pujols, Hart and Dempster? Or Pujols, Hawpe, and Lowe?
Anything you can see here that I should look at?

A.J. Pierzynski
Albert Pujols
Brian Roberts
Mark Teahen
Cristian Guzmán
Brad Hawpe
Jason Kubel
Adam Dunn
Kurt Suzuki
Jason Giambi
Andre Ethier
Jhonny Peralta
Corey Hart
Chris Iannetta
Aramis Ramírez

Tim Lincecum
Ryan Dempster
Keven Gregg
Ramon Troncoso
Brad Penny
Derek Lowe
Jason Marquis
Joel Piñeiro
Chien-Ming Wang
Tim Wakefield
C- V. Martinez
1B- J. Votto
2B- A. Hill

So after I read your last post I got real excited and navigated my way to my team page to accept this trade. I knew I wanted to take it but I just wanted to check in first. I traded away Sabathia last year for Texeira and while it wasn't a bad trade, i came to regret it for the way CC pitched down the stretch (he finished in the top ten overalll; Tex was in the late teens). So I was a little hesitant to cut ties with him this time.

But I decided to do the trade. I got excited and rushed and clicked "REJECT" REJECT". Yep. I hit it twice. I can't beleive it. I've been sick all day about it. I sent it back and explained but I haven't gotten a reply as of yet. I am deeply, deeply ashamed. I've been playing fantasy football/baseball for over 5 years and have never done anything like it. Oh shizz...

He'll probably resend. At least you didn't accept a trade you wanted to reject.

AH HAH! I offered the same deal back and he finally accepted this morning. What a wait. I'm thinking this makes my team pretty good. Its all ready causing a bonafide shitstorm in my league. I don't think its really unfair, but I do think that people get jealous/angry when top players are involved in trades. Anyone else have this sort of backlash?
