Much Ado About Fantasy

Posted on: May 18, 2010 8:28 am
 

 Monday,May 17,2010.A start of a new week for fantasy baseball.If you have a team like mine,
Zack Greinke,Dan Haren,Phil Hughes,Tim Hudson and Andy Pettitte as starting pitchers.Mariano
Rivera And Jonathan Papelbon as my closers.Then add hitters like Matt Kemp,Alfonso Soriano
and Brian Mc cann you will be thinking you always have the upperhand.But alas,on the eve
of another Red Sox vs.Yankees game,all I've got is -0.5 against 43 points for my opponents.
Funny but what are the chances of Papelbon blowing up a save opportunity like that.Before
that Phil Hughes have a 5-0 lead that was erased by the boston juggernauts.
 The fact that I am a big Yankee fan.Can you imagine what I'm feeling when Papelbon
is trying to close the game.I wanted the Yankees to win of course but if they win My fantasy team will
suffer.
 So you know already what happen.The Yankees won and I am very happy for that.But I am very
sad also because of the -11 points that Papelbon gave my team last night.
 These kind of things are making the game of baseball more interesting.I know for some of you
who doesn't care about fantasy sports,you are thinking these are all rubbih.But I am going
to tell you right now,Fantasy sports are making all these sports more enjoyable.

 Their is nothing better than a brotherly suggestion.Thank You very much.You know what,I
forgot that Phil Hughes is eligible as a Relief Pitcher.Now I am putting Papelbon as a
trade bait.

c'mon my pal ,,,your biggest mistake is Papelbon,,,this guy it's just a lucky man,,,i think you are on a H2H league,,,what about setting a pitching lineup with mo as RP( obviously) and hughes as RP and get an additional SP ,,,you should gain the points of hughes as a SP at the RP slot,,,and sell this bum named papelbum ,,,just an opinion
