Kill me now, please. One game being played (Tigers, White Sox), boring game, and Gibson has a voice that makes you wish that hemlock was part of your snack.

I feel like total dog s--- like I am going to puke everytime I think about how I could have drafted Yordan Alvarez, Keston Hiura, Peter Alonso, or any of the other up and coming young players in my draft  instead I pick Eloy and he sucks  total balls

Thank you Mr. Sale for tonight's performance.  Granted I'm locked in as a 3 seed (top 2 seeds get bye) primarily thanks to your s---y performance last time out.  But I appreciate you finally pitching like an ace again in a week where it would actually benefit me to lose.  So thanks for blowing your wad tonight.  I'm looking forward to the "real" Sale next time out during the first round of the playoffs.

Yup.  6 teams make it but the semis and championship weeks are both 2 weeks long.

Mine do too. 20 week H2H season, overwhelming majority play in a football league together and try to avoid the overlap.

Thanks to Edwin Diaz and Blake Trinen my ERA is the worst in the league. I didn't even think closers could hurt that much. German Vazquez has killed me there too.

 

And, why can't ESPN have their damn active stats page again? That pisses me off more than my last place ERA and WHIP.

H2H can really be infuriating sometimes.

In my 12-team league, I'm comfortably first in six categories (R, HR, RBI, OBP, WHIP and QS), second in three (Ks and ERA), fourth in SB and dead last in SV after punting it from the get-go. I'm sitting in third place, so it could probably be worse.... but just think of how much anxiety and grief I've experienced for nothing but random chance. I should be basking in victories and full of pride in my team right now, not scrounging the wire in hopes of choosing correctly between Jake Junis and Vince Velasquez.

Well it's playoff week so of course I would happen to be going up against Torres and my lineup (including Arenado, Betts and Lindor) would pretty much do nothing.  And the icing on the cake is Hand blowing a save.  Rinse and repeat every single year.

My league has 2 SP slots, and 4 P slots. Haven't been in a situation where that isn't enough to start everyone before.

 

I had 6 starters pitching today then May got moved up. First time I've ever had to bench a SP that is starting because I physically cannot fit him into my lineup.

Kluber, Snell, Price and Cole on DL. This is why I'm quitting fantasy after this year. Too old to be getting angry and stressed over things like this.

It's playoff week so naturally Hand and Workman blow saves on back to back nights.  I figured I'd have a decent shot at a save given that they're playing against each other.  Nope.

Update: 2/7 starters pitched well

Starting Gallen in Coors, what did you expect?

Hate to say it, but yep, anybody who started Gallen last night was asking for their ratios to be destroyed.  Granted some of us that pitched McKay in a much better matchup didn't really fare any better, but that's beside the point.  I can understand somewhat if you are in a weekly league and really wanted his second start, but otherwise there was absolutely no reason to start Gallen, and this is coming from somebody that is really high on him moving forward.

I only did after watching Boyd begin my week off with a hot steamy pile on the mound. Also my opponent started off with an 8 era over his first 18 innings so I took the chance for the win. Gallen actually lowered my era and whip after what Boyd did.
