Just a matter of time and patience.

Me again:
Not grumpy...... just tired. Been at work for 24 hrs with no sleep....... not good for mental processes. Just wanted to say a few quick thoughts about my fantasy team. They have disappointed me thus far..... even though I am in 4th place.......... the numbers they have put up compared to the numbers they should be putting are not even in the same zip code. However, being that baseball is a game of numbers and that those numbers usually right themselves by the end of the year........ I have much optimism for winning the cup for the 2nd yr. Gotta have faith........ faith fa faith!

My team SUKS

My team is full of over achievers....... under performing. I understand that baseball is a game of numbers and trends, but I am really starting to think my chances of victory this year are behind me. Not to mention that every time one of my players decides to go on the DL out of the "Blue".......... they do it on a Monday or Tuesday night after I set my weekly roster. No points for you! I can only hope I get a nice surge before the All-Star Break to put me back into contention and that a week off will rejuvenate my stars. I know I can win......... I have the team, the talent, and the managerial skills that they write about in books................. the question remains.............. does my team have the WILL?!?
Way to dramatic...... I know...... but I am tired of NOT being in the LEAD!

I'm hungover

Morning,It's about 8:30 am EST, and I am immediately regretting that last jager bomb I took at 2 this am!!! Will I ever learn, probably not and that's OK..... hangovers eventually subside.....right??
Be right back......
I'm back........ had to discuss a pending trade with the porcelain pool.
Since we are talking "trades" here, I have some thoughts/issues concerning my league and its traderestrictions. There are NO restrictions... and here lies the problem.....well we do have a trade deadline...but I digress. I am somewhat a "noob" in this whole Fantasy Sports Management (2nd year..FYI: won theleague championship last year 08), but I'd like to think that with a little common sense and homeworkone should have a good chance at doing well as a Fantasy "G.M." That being said....... if the league youare in lacks in the area of "common sense"; winning/or at least doing well can be about as easy as turning downthat last jager bomb from the attractive(and drunk) female who assumes you will be making breakfast for ina few hours.
A little history:I got my first taste(sour) of the "one sided" trade last year, occurring in the middle of July, 2008.It involved a 3 for 3 between two teams in my league (8 team league)J. Cantu - J. Jurrjens - Carlos Gomez   FOR   A. Petite - Shane Victorino - ALBERT PUJOLSI remember thinking.... Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat
!!Any self respecting G.M. would call this a laughable offense, rejecting this poor excuse for a trade fasterthan you can say "boom goes the dynamite"However, this was not the case....... the trade was accepted......... and I cried foul for exactly 64 sec withouttaking a breathe.
 The team who gave PUJOLS away(call him "Team Rainman") for basically "middle of the draft" players, was in his
first yr. as a G.M. Also, the team who received Christmas in July(we will call him "Team Rape") is a co-commisioner of my league and thetwo are best buddies. "Rainman" is a fitting name for this team. Common sense he scores a "0/10"-- Baseball Knowledge he scores a .5/10--the ability to count how many toothpicks are in a mason jar he scores a 10/10. Congratulations!!Basically, he was bent over the proverbial chair and was given a good rogering. 
My next reaction should have been to calmly reach for my mouse......move it over to the spot where it says "veto trade"....... and depressed my pointer finger until I heard it click. Not the case.......because that is not an OPTION in my league.
................. um............... got to go and hopefully finish my talk with "porcy" (I named him... WOW I must seek therapy)so................ I will continue this at a later time................... so..................... until then
