Screw up a trade and deal Ryan Howard for Rich Harden, who goes on the DL. No big deal. Jason Giambi's a free agent. Less stress. Sometimes, it's welcomed.
Understood RL, but I would have no interest in a league where Ben Sheets goes undrafted and somebody drops Jake Peavy. Those things shouldn't happen in a 2-team league much less 8 or 10. Lack of knowledge means lack of competition which to me = wasted time and effort.
More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.
