Picture this:  it's the year 2098, the world is a nuclear wasteland.  Buildings are merely empty crumbling shells.  The sky is an orange, purple color, constantly highlighted by dust clouds and freque

Yes, this includes myself...

All my players who are clearly hurt also play on teams that wait until 10 seconds before the game starts to put guys on the DL. So now I have to watch people take players on my watchlist. Piss me off

** Sigh **

Man after all the luck I had last season to win my first title in a league that started in 2002, my team is doing awful this season...  I would be more frustrated if I hadn't realized a long time ago that this is all luck anyway...  Hopefully the luck pendulum will swing back my way soon...

My teams taken so many daily beatings its got me to the point where I really don't  even want to play anymore.

Been there done that and used to be like that...  But once I learned that it is all luck, things got much better for me not to take this hobby seriously...

Good luck, you will get through this to enjoy this game again...

Mortal Kombat ending up sucking a** and I'm about to lose my third straight week in h2h.

Haven't seen it yet, expectations aren't high, but I did see an animated movie called "Scorpion's Revenge" also on HBO Max that was pretty damn good for fans of the game, if you want to overcome that disappointment. I'll check the live action version this weekend and report back. Since I need a baseball rant I'll complain that I wanted to bench Eovaldi today but decided stupidly to run him out against the Mariners. Regression monster coming hard.

I agree on the lucky part. You just got to pick the right lotto number( Players) every yr to win.  Players perform at diffrent levels every yr even the most consistant players have under performed some yrs.  Injuries are random also. Even Mike Trout right now today is not playing so you take a 0 what can you do. Then hitting that 1 yr magical season from a guy like ( Porcello) helps you win. Its all random pretty much.

Speaking of zeros. Giolito is a useless 0. might get another pushback This is not what ACES do. Aces take the ball every 5 days. Giolito  is being treated like a 5th starter

I was  winning ERA and holding a lead in losses, even though my opponent has 8 starts this week with 1 ER or less. Fretted over starting Stroman, just needed him to not get destroyed. He got destroyed. Hate this game this week.

I kept Hiura and Matt Chapman but wanted to be cautious and wound up reaching a little for Biggio as a 2B/3B hedge. 

Pretty impressive 0 for 3 there.

He just got traded for Arraez in my league and I think the Arraez owner might regret it. Biggio is in serious jeopardy of heading to the bench if he doesn't turn it around in a hurry.

I didn't see a single draft in the past two seasons where I didn't think he was massively overpaid for. People way overvalue multi-position eligibility, and while I understand his upside, I'm just not convinced he's a quality major leaguer, despite some decent on-base skills. In any case, it's not hard to look at the Jays lineup and figure out who goes once Springer returns.

Pablo Lopez can't buy any run support and of course the ONE time the Marlins hitters actually have given it to him, it's the one start he was bad where he couldn't even get through 5 innings smh

Seriously, F you Charlie Blackmon. You do nothing POS. And spare me the advanced stats, he sucks.  I don't care about his BABIP, his barrels rate, his launch angle, etc. You know why I don't give one Chicago alley rat's behind about those stats? Because they aren't f'n fantasy stats. Bottom line, the guy suck donkey johnson right now and no amount of fangraphs nerdery is going to change that fact. Rant over.

Yeah it was terrible. Movies like this that try to get by with no-name actors and low budget scores and sets are like the teams in MLB that should have the finances to compete, but are happy to trade on the goodwill of their fans and put out a mediocre product nonetheless. I'm looking at you, Cubs. One World Series every century is not enough.

They made the cardinal sin that every movie goer hates, putting in a new character that isn’t from the source material. Porn level acting and they should of casted someone other than chin han for shang tsung. He wasn’t intimidating and he looked like xi xingpin with a black wig and black contacts. I was so disappointed, just like my team in a my h2h league. This week sucked! And this covid vaccine hurts like a b.

Yep I get tired of the statcast advtanced stat bull **** geeks when none of those stats give me Runs scored, Rbis, Batting Ave, Homers or Stolen bases. Could give a rats a** about anything else but those 5 stats.

Everyday I wake up with a optimistic outlook for the days games. I keep telling myself Its still april . Its still april  things will get better  and everyday I get my a** kicked. Today I have Verdugo Trout Correa all sitting the bench. I am grossly down to most of my lg leaders in games played and to top it all off I just lost Ryu who just got pulled. I losing my will to even want to play this out this yr. We do have a no tanking rule in our lg thou so I can't tank for the 1st pick nxt yr. If caught tanking you automaticially get last pick and lose 1 of your keepers
