Sounds like he's saying you don't know what you're doing.

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.

This guy offered me James Loney and Trevor Hoffman for David Wright.

Then got offended when I called him insane.

Uh, I guess this contest is over. I thought I had a good one, but Schumaker for Hanley? Did he say, "I notice you're a little weak a second, and seeing as how Hanley isn't eligible there but Schumaker will be..."?

to paraphrase , someone smarter than me .... "you still have to play the game"

the door is still open for someone to offer you an incarcerated (or worse) player before the season is over .

plus the razzball leagues may bring a whole new dimension to the universe .

p.s. at the 2nd usa-puerto rico game (6-5 usa) ...wbc , miami ...
the big screen tvs had that freckled-face , little catcher kid , from the bad news bears , yelling out ===> "PLAY BALL" ,
as the opening ceremonies came to a close .

I was under the impression Grey was joking.

I think the competition is still open.

Yay for :P ball

I don't think any of these alone will win most ridiculous of the year, but taken in quick succession from the same manager, they're hard to beat.

The manager states he needs a 2B and steals. He's benching Sandoval.

I offer Burriss for Sandoval (thinking what does he need with a catcher on the bench and Burriss kills 2 birds...)
He counters his Kurt Suzuki and Sherrill for my Johjima and Kerry Wood (yes, this is a big league).
I say no.
He offers Sandoval for Aramis Ramirez.
I say that's silly.
He offers Sandoval and Jerry Hairston, Jr. for JOSE FREAKING REYES.
I don't really need to say anything because I might as well forfeit now if I would even consider this.
He sort of says that was a joke and changes Hairston to Conor Jackson.

So that's where we stand this morning!
