If anyone recalls, I've been the king of sonnuvabenches in the last couple of years. It seems lady luck owes me. This year, my moves picking up waiver fodder for spot starts have worked great so far.

I have Mclouth as the starting CF coming into '10, but he has not started a single game. I managed to get Venable's couple of big games, Spilborgh's homer, and Edmunds' huge game (every Brewer pretty much had a field day today).

Callaspo also had a huge game the first time I plugged him into the lineup.

That's the good news, the bad news is my team still sucks. Batting under .230 with OBP under .290.

Napoli, Roberts, Mclouth, and Pence oh my. That's 4 of my intended starting 9.

You're jinxing yourself.

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.

My lucky streak continues as I grabbed Venable again and got a 2 run jack. :D

I ended up picking Callaspo to start instead of Wig today since Wig had bad numbers against Lackey... but can't get'em all right. As long as it ain't always 3 for 4 on the bench against Lincecum with five RBI while the guy I start against a garbage AAAA'er goes 0 for 4 like it was the last couple of yrs, I am content.

You're having the Costanza everything he does is backwards type run.

Aw yeeee-ah. My luck continues. Woulda had Callaspo on the pine but the Chipster got the day off and I started King Albert.

A homer AND a steal! Who does he think he is, Utley?

Last two years, this would have been an 0 for 4. The good luck's keeping my team in the middle of the pack for now...
