    I noticed, there are 24 weeks for matchups overall . Is that final number? I need to know because of Andrew Bynum is out for 8-12 weeks and when there is only 9 weeks left, he is not worth of keeping...

    Probably not.

    You'll lose a lot more cats over 8 weeks then you will gain in the couple where he might be back. Unless you have virtually secured your playoff spot already, I would dump him if it was me.

    I'd to officially announce that my team is made up of a bunch of pansies that can't play two games in a row without getting hurt.

    Now back to your regularly scheduled forum...

    We need one more guy for fantasy baseball.

    If you're interested, please hit the Tigers forum and post your interest. League will be weekly, standard yahoo scoring, live draft (there is also a live draft time thread).

    Man, injuries suck.

    First, T-Mac (the glass man). After that, Memo drunk a bad batch of Kool-Aid when he went home for the All-Star break, then Danny Granger gets hurt. :(

    I've been really curious as to how things are going in this league.

    Are you newbies enjoying yourselves?

    Would it be possible to post the standings?

    Please tell me Roscoe isn't leading this thing.

    My son (UP Heroes) is down there towards the bottom. He was getting over-confident in his fantasy sports skills, so nice work humbling him like that.

    Bill, I see you have, as dutiful father already taught to your son some tricks of of trade ( among of many essential surviving skills). Your son proposed me the following trade: He offered me Sheed and Wilson Chandler for David Lee and Rajon Rondo. LOL.


    Anyway, injuries hurts but in some cases those day to day injuries hurt team owner even more. Serious injuries are usually quick to be marked and you can make a move if possible/necessary but those day to day wounded are sitting on your roster b/c of there is always a hope that they might play in next game.

    I'm fighting with Micro now and today's matchup will be interesting: honest 1 on 1 duel between my Pau Gasol vs Yao Ming.

    Gasol has an advantage, I think: Lakers plays vs running Phoenix; Ming has to fight through stingy defensive wall built by Weakening Ben, Varejao and Ilgauskas.

    I'm the Detroit Ballaholics, but I'm currently losing a battle with a guy who hasn't set his roster in months. How pathetic is that?:(

    Hell, Elton Brand is still in the lineup.:D

    This is going to be a bad week for the 1st place team if we can't pull it together by Monday.

    Wow, we were able to pull through with a decent Sunday performance. I was getting my ass whooped every day before yesterday.

    The top six teams make the championship playoffs.Of those, the top two teams get a first round bye.

    Remaining teams make the consolation bracket playoffs.

    The top three teams in the championship round are awarded cyber trophies.

    Click on a manager's name to see his trophies. Don't bother to click Roscoe's name unless you want to view a skunk.

    Yahoo seems to be really slow updating the stats this week. Still nothing from last night.
