between Evan Longoria and a bag of fertilizer?

One is smelly, nasty, stomach-turning and stinks up a field.

The other is used to grow crops.

He hit a HR today, maybe try insulting all your players, it hasn't worked for me and my staggering offensive slump. Now Papi is in a walking boot and I'm counting on Godzilla.

I am the proud owner of Yuniesky Effing Bettancourt. Seriously. And he is starting.

You are on to something, Barrys.

I made one positive post about team's effort, immediately after which the team fell off a cliff towards 4th place.

The [Hidden] Marauders will continue their efforts this season, thank you very much.

I saw that. The owner of Jose Reyes and Hanley Ramirez is starting Yuniesky Betancourt.

I would have offered you either J.J. Hardy (23 HR's, 58 RBI's, 51 R's) or Jhonny Peralta (.352 OBP, 17 HR's, 65 RBI's, 52 R's) in trade late in the year since I drafted Hardy and traded for Peralta but ...

Yes, of course, I dropped both guys for nothing.

Hey, the SS position is really deep so dropping two huge producers was a great freaking move, particularly where Barrys picked up Peralta ... :oops:

And two more bite the dust, in Kipnis and Youkilis.

I now have 3 MI on the DL. The Underachievers are to MI what the Pirates are to C.

Kipnis produced more than you could have hoped before getting hurt. 6 HR's in limited play? That kept you in the running.

Kipnis is a legit fantasy MI. Draft pedigree (2nd rounder), rated 54th best prospect by BA, high OBP, and 16HR last year split between A+ and AA, and had hit another 12 prior to his callup this year. I mean, he is no Brett Lawrie, but he was a good pickup. I even considered dangling Reyes and using Kipnis to ride out the year (since no one will catch me in steals anyways) at the deadline.

Regardless, getting nothing out of Wright or Hanley has hurt far more.
