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.

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.

Had both Morgan and Pods on the bench. Instead I went with Pronk... Guesed right that Harang was gonna get hit, but shoulda known Pronk'd be rusty. Had Morgan in there over Mclouth but backed out too. Sonnuvabench.

I benched a slumping Cruz for the week. I have been the biggest supporter of Cruz all year long, and everyone in my league gave me shit for benching him when I talked him up so much. I have heard tons of "I told you he wasn't any good" and its only Tuesday. So what does he do? Gets a SB yesterday and a HR today. Serves me right for losing faith (even though his AVG dropped 40 points in 30 days.) At least I am playing Jose Lopez who happens to be one of the hottest players right now. So maybe it will even out.
I'm the Cleave, so thats what you call me. That, or um, Cleaver, or his Cleaveness, or um, El Cleaverino, if your not into the whole brevity thing.

12 team 1 PPR, 5 bonus points for 100 yard rec. and rushing, and 300 yard passing

QB - eli manning
RB - CJ, Ronnie Brown
Flex - Bradshaw
WR - Fitz, hines ward, Louis Murphy
TE - celek
Def - Texans
K - akers
bench - micheal bush, ricky williams, mcfadden, malcolm floyd, Roy Williams, Mike williams (sea)

Actually this year hasn’t been bad, certainly compared to last year.

I post most cuz I whine more than anyone else, and also the drive for perfection. It’s built into smurf DNA.

(And prolly cuz I am going with waiver wire guys for half of my positions thanks to injuries so on most days it’s matchup decisions, with great sonnuvabench potential)

For now I am going with Willie Harris and Bonifacio at 2b… today I picked Bonifacio since I thought Josh Johnson was the tougher pitcher… didn’t take long to get burned.

Still, overall, can’t complain about my decisions this year as I lead by 10 pts despite losing my starting C, 2b, CF, top SP, and my expected top RP for HLDs, and my SS being Hardy. Just hope the smoke and mirrors can continue.
