I picked up one of the auctions, and bid him up a buck on another, but there wasn't anyone there I was honestly all that excited about.
I believe that someday I will punch that arrogant foreman at the plant square on his fat nose; that I will get in the last word with my wife; that I will win the Irish sweepstakes; that the Mets will start a winning streak.

well, i managed to snag a fairly superfluous joe panik... he should significantly overperform his $6 salary, though i'm not entirely sure how much playing time i'll be able to give him. i need to offload an anchor first.
the first step is admitting you're a runner.

running is a mental sport, and we're all insane.

I'm not sure if it explicitly tells you (it might) but you can look and see the high bid on every player in the acquisition pipeline. Look! Joe Panik for $6!!

you can look at it after the fact, to help inform your future decisions.

I don't think so..

what's the high bid for Gregory Bird?

I have a Yahoo spot if he's desperate I'll play, though I'll probably autodraft.

i'd play another league, probably, but i cannot support an 8:00 PM draft.

The whole thing is like, totally hands off it'll autodraft you a team of brand-name superstars or if you take 5 minutes to arrange a list of favorites, try and pick your favorites for you automagically.

Like I said, if you need I'll autodraft (I definitely don't have time or a spare brain cell irl right now) and happily play waiver wire and all that. plenty of midseason sleepers.

ceetar@gmail.com or just ceetar on yahoo if he wants to invite.

What the hell is going on in this league? 3 weeks ago I was trying to start a Fire Sale (Ceetar never responded to a generous trade offer to kick it off) this morning I'm a half-point out of first place, which is as close as the Lunchladies have ever been this deep into a season (top 5 teams are very close right now) and I forgot to activate Matz yesterday.

My thought was, "these other teams couldn't possibly suck as much as mine does" but I guess you do.

All that said, open to offers on intriguing property in exchange for same and where I can I save a buck. In general I'd like an elite shortstop and have homer-hitting first basemen up the wazoo

My whole frickin' team has been hurt more or less all season and I just don't know what to do with myself. I need to start clearing house.

Sorry. I'm sorta fried and overwhelmed, I didn't even notice your offer until you canceled it.

I'm actually thinking of giving up fantasy altogether after this season.

There was a point in the season when I had 8 pitchers on the DL and another one suspended. But until yesterday I had spent the last two weeks in first place. As Joe Walsh once said, I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

i gotta say, i miss having kershaw.... though he wouldn't necessarily solve my pitching staff, he sure wouldn't hurt it right now.

my staff is so completely and utterly revamped from the start of the season, that it kinda hurts my head. bottom line, i suppose, is that i'm glad i stuck with severino. heck, my offense has seen a hell of a lot of turnover as well.

I've currently got so, so many decent cheap slugging outfielders and 1bmen that i really cannot play them all. i mean, shit, i've got miggy cabrera sitting on my damn bench and he's my most expensive player!

you guys stole every last guy I auctioned. bleh, I knew I should've just overpaid for one rather than spreading the love and hoping to keep the ones that weren't just having a good month.

yeah, man. there's a lot of dollars still out there burning a hole in every team's pocket. at this point, you probably have to pay double what a guy is probably worth in the draft, or just hope to get really lucky.

is there a type of player you might be in particular need of? i'm developing a bit of a surplus of players.

btw... please don't quit fantasy. you're the commish of my favorite fantasy league, dangit!

I need POWER. I'm sure by next spring things will have calm down some and I won't feel as overwhelmed.

Well congrats to Easton.

I actually thought I had a shot, was in 2nd place and gaining in late August but in the end I was let down by the infield (Seager and Kinsler had terrible years, relatively speaking).

The idea with the Scherzer trade was to get the payroll back into shape, hope I hung on in the pitching categories (which I mostly did) and gain in OBP and SLG, which was way out of whack with my RS and HR production. The OBP did tick up but not enough; and I gave it back on SLG. 4th place again.

We badly need divisions!

Divison and a playoff situation would be kinda cool, yes.

hmm, in every year of this league, my pitchers have had the highest strikeout total. too bad they couldn't do a goddamned thing else well....
