I got 4 dudes on the DL, including 1/3 of my starting lineup. I got another dude in E Rosario who may not be 100%. It’s been one week. Team still in 3rd place though, so not the end of the world, yet.

 

 

PLEASE!!!

 

Had a 15 team slow draft begining of March with 40 man rosters.

 

I have

10 players on the DL

3 players in the minors (later picks and expected them to start in the minors)

2 players on 80 game suspensions (Yes, the only 2 MLB players to get popped in March ... Jorge Polanco and Jorge Bonifacio)

 

So I have 25 players and need to start 24 ... UGLY ... and surprisingly this team just dropped into last place last night

 

Footnote, I am never again drafting any player who's first name is Jorge!

Just be sure not to watch Lester today and you’ll be right as rain

I hate it when there's so many talented players in the free agent pool in all of the leagues where I can't use them.  Then in the leagues where my offense is weaker there is NONE of them that I can pick up. UGH

My combined stats from the catcher position so far this year, 0-8.

 

Drafted and started Zunino on opening day.

 

Picked up Lucroy and he sat.

 

Lucroy 0-4.

 

Picked up Hedges and he missed 2 games.

 

Hedges 0-4.

 

Hedges runs me to a cool 0-11 from the catcher position.  Seriously thinking about just starting Zunino.

10?  Jeez, that is brutal.  I had 6 at one point last year and thought I was cursed.

I'm in Vegas BMcP...they have a new legal drug that allowed me to sit in the sports book and enjoy Lester's start! It took a lot of gummies..

Didn't think anything could top my .402 OPS from yesterday.  "Hold my beer" says my offense.  .154 today.  Not a typo, yes it's possible to have a .154 OPS.

My OBP for the season in a 14 team rotisserie is .274 dead last

I own Votto/Ramirez/Incaiarte/Keirmeier

Yeah, I just wanted to rant in general about how much the rain delays, postponements and off days are really messing with everything. Hitters haven't even been able to get into any kind of rhythm and with all these teams with days off on a Friday, it just doesn't even feel quite like baseball has really begun in the true sense. Like many of you probably, I've got a bunch of elite producers who are "producing" about a buck-ten batting average right now.

Feel you there. My lineup of Hoskins/Kingery/Arendado/Machado/Cain/Gallo/Buxton went 1-28 yesterday with a .165 OPS. Hey atleast I got a SB!

Hey "I usually only play fantasy football but decided to try baseball this year" people. Fantasy baseball is nothing like fantasy football. Stop clogging every player thread with empty no analysis knee jerk reactionism. 

 

ITS THE FIRST WEEK OF THE SEASON. 

 

And please stop using the player threads for in game commentary, that's why we have a GAMEDAY THREAD. 

 

May the fantasy baseball gods have mercy on your souls.
