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

Good news?  No need to intentionally tank at this rate, amirite?

I got completely curbed stomped this week due to my utterly dickless offense. Literally the worst fantasy week of my life.  Today all I needed was one run scored in 14 F'n innings by Acuna or Freeman to salvage a point. But no, the two "studs", who statistically took the week off, capped their craptastic seven days by allowing the second division Dbacks to sweep them in a doubleheader at home.  One f'n hit?! Jesus H. Christ. I hope they feel shame.  I really do.  

Oh and to top it off,  I get home from the 9th ring of hell that is Costco on a Sunday to find that Ryu, gelatinous slob that he is, got pulled from his start due to straining his a**?!  You got to be f'n kidding me.

The pool douchebag has had 11 straight days of sub 2 ERA. 

My opponent had 7 straight starters have outings of 1 ER or less. All the while his team hit near .300 this week. What a scumbag.

Where has all the offense gone?  In so many of my leagues, there are teams with less than a 3.00 ERA for the season.  Lots of teams with a sub .800 OPS.  

Ask Rawlings?

LoL is the league batting average down or what?

I am hitting 0.150 for this week and my opponent has 0.160 batting average. Meanwhile he has 5 HR for the entire week and I only manage 4 HR. 

League avg is down to .232 from .245 last year and .252 in 2019. OPS is also down to .701 from .740 in 2020 and .758 in 2029 🤢

We get a weekend reboot so I was ecstatic to put that pumpkin Laureano on my bench before the Friday game.  He hits 2 HRs over the weekend after doing nothing at all.  FML.  

This is HALLOWEEN, this is HALLOWEEN, Pumpkins scream in the dead of night...

I thoroughly enjoyed your rant and am wondering if you offer a subscription.

It was an amazing rant - it had me laughing.

Sometimes, before you threaten to throw a brick through your opponents car window, you just have to laugh.   Went to bed last night  with the solace of knowing the only way I lose one of the three f'n points I scrounged last week was if the closer of the team down 7-1 in the 7th gets a save. Woke up to an 11-2 loss. Amazing. Truly amazing.

Make that 3 of us!! Dropped him last night at 7:13 pm.

I've got zero sympathy here, you held or kept him for 2 weeks on the IL only to activate him and cut him one day after his return? It makes no sense. You got what you deserved. I can relate to the feeling because I have OF COURSE done the same thing many times. I am usually patient, but dropped CJ Cron from a CI spot when I saw Renato Nunez got promoted, figuring they're similar players and Nunez would be safer, what on Earth was I thinking there. Like a week later Nunez is DFA'd and Cron is ready to take off. Call me Mr. Dumas.
