I’m not doing so hot, how about yourself?

18 April, 2006

In years past, I've always felt like I had a plan for the season.  Not this year.  I feel like I'm grasping at straws and always grabbing the short one.  I drafted Troy Perkins early but dropped him after the first week (real dumb).  In fact I entered panic mode after the first week and burned through a ton of transfers.  I have a paltry slush fund and my expensive players are underperforming.

How do you feel?

    I felt really great the first two weeks, picking forgeting I had picked Ching, then discovering him in my starting lineup after a four-goal game. But last week I was too heavy on Houstonites in a game against DC (how foolish), and I ended up with minus ten points. Sickening.

    I was too heavy on Houstonians as well. At least DeRosario was suspended, which landed him on my bench.

    Being in 1st, I feel… great.. though I seriously expect a big fall. I guess I’m doing things right though I burned through much of my slush fund this week as I had to change some of my underperforming players. I’ve used seven transfers so far too. Fortunately I have no likely WC players and only one player from one of the truly bad teams (NY, C-bus, RSL).

    Lowe- I’ll be looking at how your new lineup works. Good luck.

    You guys use analysis for your picks?
    I just pick people based on their dreamy names or haircuts.

    We have a high ranking thanks to Scooter & Marmots…

    Maybe, perhaps, possibly, some other teams could help carry the water we could be #1?

    That was better, although I would have been top of the table for the week had I not subbed Filomeno on for Cooper

    You guys are definitely kicking a** this year. Eric roughed me up for the cup last year, but this year I feel like I’m drowning and seem to be grabbing at straws (and usually a game late, too.) The only shining star is that I started Esky a week before he actually started. At least I held out…I knew he’d take that spot from Lucio (who I dumped!). BTW, I’m on the Cooper wagon, too, but not for this Saturday’s game!
