Thought I'd kick off the annual vent and rant thread for those of us who need to do just that.

Its the third round of my keeper league, and I'm eyeing billy butler the whole way. It gets to the point where there's two picks in front of me and hes still available. I figure I'm gonna get him since the guy drafting already has prince fielder. This jerk off decides to take him anyway and I end up drafting kipnis instead. I couldve had trout, j upton, beltre, and butler as my first four hitters in a 12 team league. I'm beyond pissed, I ended up with kipnis instead, probably lookin at Freeman for 1B now

The whole freaking Yahoo mock drafts. Have spent most of the morning trying to get into one. Can't connect when the draft starts. Can connect when testing the system. Have tried with 4 different browsers and actually gotten in twice while the draft was going on. Unfortuntely both times it was 8 rounds or later. I have the same system as last year with the same settings (though all extensions are current) have screwed up Chrome by reinstalling it and lost some of my favorite extensions. God I hate Yahoo

Oh yea and it worked just fine yesterday

happens quite often. If the draft doesn't load up, just refreash the page and then click "join live draft".

We are already ranting?...

took over keeper team, accidentally kept josh reddick over cc sabathia ... i don't like cc coming off injury and think reddick is a legit 30/10 OF, but i could've easily redrafted him and cc would be quite the trade bait. twas an accident, totally misunderstood the league format.

my team still came out really good i think ... but yeah.

I have 1 run and 0 RBI combined across 3 different leagues. It really doesn't get any worse than that.
And Ludwick is already hurt.

Traded for Cole Hamels in the offseason, and in his first inning on my squad he immediately gives up a 2 run HR to my opponent's player. Opening day double whammy.
