and FB is lurking around the suckage pool.
In full disclosure I was just kicked out of a baseball league. Ne explanation but the only thing that I can figure out is that I wasn't "active enough". I don't even think I was in last place. First I was innundated with so many lame trade requests that I stopped responding. Why did I stop responding? Because the same 3 guys were offering me a marginal infielder and a marginal middle reliever for close to franchise level players. Ok, first 2 players are not better than 1. Second, maybe I like the player you are trying to get. I am under no obligation to trade anything to you nor tell you what I would like in response the more requests you make does not make me more likely to trade. Many of us bloggers deal with this when we bust boxes. Some dude with 5 packs worth of commons wants us to check out his bucket to see if there is anything we want. The other reason I may not have been active enough is that I didn't drop and add 3-5 players a day. Frankly if you have the time to do this you aren't getting laid nearly enough. At least in football you have tuesday wednesday and most of thursday to get your roster set.
I get that fantasy baseball isn't supposed to be realistic, but why must we turn over our entire team to be competitive? Yes I have done very well in leagues. Held first place in a hockey league wire to wire until the playoffs. Played for the title in a couple baseball leagues and football as well but I am not going to do the aforementioned add drop every day. Leagues should limit the number roster moves to a more realistic 2-4 per week. Picked up Heyward or Castro after he went off, dropped him by Thursday for a few days and then picked them back up the following Monday and then dropped for good after that. Enough about that
Here's the deal, college based teams suck. There are never enough players, nor teams to support such a thing. There are a few teams that kick ass and other than those 2-4 you have no shot of winning.
