As in Oswaldo Arcia Today

Postby Zwei » Wed May 22, 2013 12:15 pm

Is there a term more specific than sonuvabench for when a player on your roster is benched IRL so you don't play him (and who could blame you?), but then he comes in and delivers a pinch hit HR? This as opposed to you just benching a player who's not been great but is still playing who then performs well (as in BJ Upton today for me).

Yeah, I hear ya... So frustrating... There's no specific term for that, but am all ears (eyes, actually)...

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.
