Ouch, that hurts.

"My eyes, my eyes"

Please don't subject me to that bench anymore p0rk. May be a precursor of things to come.

Posada is definitely messing up the feng shui of that image. I left him in there because thats my entire offensive bench, felt like cheating to take him out.

I feel your pain. In the last week, I have left on the bench:
Hawpe: 2-run HR
Hawpe: Grand slam
Posada: 2-4 incl a HR
Doumit: 2 HR game yesterday.

Pork burned indeed.

Steve-d perhaps?

Wow, that's awful.

Who did you play instead of them?

I think I probably had Bruce in the Util spot for Hawpe both times. For the first home run he hit off the diabled list, I was away from a computer and didn't actually know he had been activated, so didn't feel so bad about that. As for his grand slam, I think I mentioned, Grey, that I put him in my line up then swapped him out for Bruce just before game time because I was in need of steals. Turns out it wouldn't have made any differnce to my match-up as I ended up winning HRs and RBIs anyway.
When Posada was benched I started Doumit and then vice versa yesterday.
Yesterday's sparkling piece of decision-making could yet bite me on the arse as my opponent this week has Corey Hart...

I don't want to say who I had instead of Uggla and Murphy, you'll make fun of me.

Lets just say Anal Fissures were involved. I was hoping for a steal. Murphy was sitting in lieu of Markakis/Godzilla/Wells. I'll give you this round, Rudy Gamble, but this battle is far from over.

Ha. That's just painful seeing stats accumulate on your bench. For a while, I refused to even carry hitters on my bench to avoid that situation.

We can't be adding site members' names (Grey and I) included into the glossary but this is definitely a situation that warrants a nickname.

How about....

Sonavabench! - Exclamation when one sees that a player on their bench has had a monster day. Can also be used as a noun or adjective. "David Murphy just hit 2 HR but I didn't start him today - sonavabench!" "It doesn't matter what I do - my team is a spiteful sonavabench". "Shoot me now - my fantasy team just had a killer sonavabench day."
