the "day off" rant

Postby nyphilsphan » Thu May 20, 2010 9:28 am

I know players deserve a day off now and then, and nor are these two going to carry my team to a championship, but these tandem contradictory headlines gave me a small case of the rage.

Slumping Giovanni Soto given day game off.
Red hot Gomes given day game off.

WTF?!

That's all.

Don't forget Werth. Don't these guys know we have fantasy teams relying on them?

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.

sometimes I want to call up coaches and say "DON'T PITCH MIKE LEAKE PAST THE 6TH INNING!!!!!" You are killing my fantasy team!!!! he is great up until 6.1 innings.

I know this has nothing to do with having a day off I just didn't want to feel left out with the ranting.

Add Rasmus to the list. Maybe it's a red hat conspiracy.

The scary thing is there are likely fantasy players out there who actually verbally harass managers over start/bench decisions and the like. Some forget that we play this game for fun ...
