      Check out the new Rotoworld Beta Site!   11/14/2018

      Rotoworld has been the industry leader in fantasy news and analysis for years, but it was time for a much-needed facelift!  While our around-the-clock, comprehensive coverage will remain the same, the new Rotoworld design will be sleeker, easier to navigate, more video-friendly and will finally be mobile-optimized.    That’s right, you can finally stop pinching the screens on your phones to read our content!  Right now we’re in the beta phase of our launch, and it’s still a work-in-progress, but we’d love for you to check out our soon-to-be new digs, and let us know what you think: https://beta.rotoworld.com.    And then please use the Contact Us button to give us feedback!

Vent & Rant Thread 2018

Recommended Posts

Traded kimbrel and a mid-tier closer for Harper in May.  Really didn't expect to be regretting it this badly. Cant wait until Boras' off-season excuse list comes out.

Does Rizzo care anymore?  Does he actually want to play?

I have always believed in the philosophy of, "Never bench your studs," but is this the first year that that statement in total BS? i.e...I own Rizzo, Harper, and Devers (not that he is stud)...and I am sure everyone has other players that fall into this category. I mean, I am looking at benching Rizzo for Bird at this point...I benched Harper for Kiermaier and I was happy...what a year...

My team goes ham in the past two days to take the lead in 6 out of 7 batting categories. Then today the kid I'm facing (who has 2 less batters than me), has twice as many guys playing and a full roster. Not fair!!!

What was I thinking when I stacked Orioles hitters against Martin Perez? Yeah - Perez sucks but apparently so do Orioles hitters.  :angry:

Sorry to play semantics, but there's nothing apparent about the O's hitters sucking. It's an undeniable fact!

I was watching baseball/checking Rotoworld all afternoon. Nothing would have escaped me. Then I unplug for half an hour to go exercise. During that half hour, the news broke about Arodys Vizcaino’s (who I own) injury, and one of my rivals added Minter minutes later. I may have kicked something.

I’ve been in the same keeper league for a solid 6-7 seasons now and this is easily THE worst offense I’ve ever assembled. Thank god my pitching is good because my offense is straight up atrocious. If I hit higher than 240 in a week it’s surprising. Dead last in RBIs this year, OPS is well below 800. I’ve angered the fantasy gods.

This was the year I thought I was going to be able to compete in my 20 team dynasty league.  I over-performed expectations last season, some of my young guys looked to really be on the upswing, and some veterans I acquired looked like they were going to mesh well and I could push for the division.  As you'll see in my sig, multiple players decided to f--- me over.

 

Here is my list of underperformers, all on one roster:

 

Miguel Sano

Dee Gordon

Orlando Arcia

Jorge Polanco 

Michael Conforto

Aaron Altherr

 

Thank Christ for Mookie Betts 

 

edit: I'll add Wellington Castillo (since released) and Justin Turner

Straight up kick to the sack. It's like handing your opponent a top 10 player from your team. Worst trade I ever made, BUT it's a keep forever. I know many people will say "ohh but Lindor is better in a keep-forever too". He's broken out even more than last year. That was my mistake, I thought last year was peak-ish Lindor (he clearly has another gear so I was wrong). However, I really reeeeeallly like Seager over the next 5 years. Consistent .300+  25+  100 seasons with a MVP season of .330  35  120. If I was in a 5x5 league Lindor would be king but my league also counts OBP and SLG, which I give the edge to Seager.

We win some, we lose some. I traded Albies for Rizzo, thinking that Albies would slow down and Rizzo would catch fire. Neither one has happened.

when you have to burn 2 of your 7 remaining transactions on closers because Allen & Hand won't be getting enough points now in a salary cap league to justify starting each week.

Had to run a quick errand for work.  Before I went into the store, noticed the Hand news and saw Yates available in the league I have Hand and wanted to grab him but couldn't figure out my drop just yet.  Decided I would wait till I got back to work so I could look a little closer.  Of course, in the 15-20 minutes it took me to grab the item and get back, he was taken :angry:

See my post a little up the page. I feel you.

 

This is why my stress levels surge in the last 40% of baseball season.

In one league, I almost drafted Scherzer over Kershaw in the first round, but foolishly went back to Kershaw. Then in the second round, I decided at the last second to draft J.D. Martinez over Joey Votto, but the system said I clicked a split-second too late even though there was 1 second on the clock.

 

So instead of Scherzer-J.D. Martinez in rounds 1-2, I started my team with Kershaw-Votto. I'm in third place right now. You think that made a difference?
