Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Is probably throwing a massive hissy-fit right now in his mom's basement.
He just lost in the semis in his only league (a public one at that):
You can see here he's NEVER won a league:
Remember this the next time he calls one of you a dumbass and tries to make you believe he is better at fantasy baseball than everyone else.
As for me:
Today, I just BARELY lost in the semis of my winners league. It was so close... My opponent started Morrow and Verlander today and beat me by 1 W and 0.02 ERA, 6-4 overall.
I did advance to the championships in my other H2H league, and I'm 1st place in one of my roto leagues by 13 points and 4th in my other roto leagues with a great chance at 2nd place.
I'm not saying this to brag to everyone... Just Dick Strong. I am better at this than him, as are most of the regulars on this board.
Yep. You're a dumbass, Skippy.

Why would I throw a hissy fit? My life does not revolve around you, nor does it revolve around a fake baseball team. I find it mildly amusing and quite disturbing that you have a greater interest in my fantasy baseball team than me.
The reason I play H2H and not roto is because roto is too easy. I did that long before computers. With H2H...the best team isn't guaranteed a victory. Hell...check the roto counting stats in my league...tops in runs, RBIs, SBs, wins, and Ks...and in the top 6 in every category. Of course...come playoff time...I have found that my teams fail. Could it be mismanagement? Of course. However, it is more likely just lousy play. My team threw a stinker this week...worst BA of the entire season .230ish. Yet...we still managed 7 SBs and 6 HRs. Hell...they still had a chance to pull out a win if my pitchers had come through...a 5-5 tie would have won the matchup as I had the tiebreaker. Price being pulled early and Dumpster (er Dempster) not managing any Ks hurt. My opponent's team just did better (though not hard to do when my team bats in the .230s). The actual undoing Sunday? Zack Greinke...his performance for my opponent flipped the WHIP category and his win allowed my opponent to catch up in wins and tie the category. If Greinke has his usual blow up...I win Ws and WHIP and take a 5-5 tie/victory.
All of this means nothing.
It doesn't help that I was without the services of Reyes, Rollins, Utley, and Cruz for most of the semi-final week.
The good thing about all of this is that I see just how ridiculously you guys are obsessed with ME!!! (or ME, ME, ME!!!) Think about it, Skippy...you say that I have no life...but YOU followed MY FAKE BASEBALL TEAM!!! How sad (and pathetic) is that? Yup...you're a dumbass.

dick strong if it was just a "fake baseball team" then why is everyone a dumbass who doesnt take your advice...if youd act like most the other regulars in here then nobody would do it. You love attention but then get mad when you get it LOL come on now...

I just put yay haha at the top sarcastically
Youbhave seen my posts you know I don't just type a few words
It is alittle over the top to go so far with this, and dick if it's anyone they would do this such a thing with it's you.
Now many take your way of trying to be over everyone else, and necessarily putting some down, as dickish, and in the end the most talked about in these boards.
I also believe h2h is a lot better, I like that it's much more competitive. So I know that losing in h2h is better and even tougher, I lost this past week, and I had grenkie haha.
Well you can only look to next year!
Maybe i will, and maybe you will be on the boards next year!
At least you keep it interesting!

The link to the championship game makes sense as I recognize Dick's players. The link to the profile doesn't make sense because I thought Dick said that he doesn't play football. Something doesn't look right here.

It's his fantasy profile. You can find people's fantasy profiles when their message board posts appear at the bottom of the fantasy baseball homepage. That's how I found his. You can also tell by his avatar with the classy Hardee's backdrop.
As far as him not playing fantasy football, he plays 'pick em'. Not sure how that works, as I've never, and would never play that, but I don't think it's the same type of format as our fantasy baseball.

In Dick's defense you'll see that his regular season record was pretty stellar so that backs up his claims of being pretty knowledgeable when it comes to fantasy baseball. As far as winning the league that's one of the faults of playing h2h instead of roto; one down week and you're out where roto is accumulated over the entire season.

Most people can be good in public leagues if they're just active everyday, but I do see your point. Roto is definitely a much better way of determining skill, while H2H is more fun and competitive. That's why I like to do two public leagues of each.
Still though, good managing and player selection should be enough to win the playoffs, especially in public leagues.

The Truth speaks the truth.
Check the "team stats" page. My team is tops in runs, RBIs, SBs, Ws, and Ks...and top 6 in every category.
H2H is all about the weekly matchup. My team threw a stinker...not only did my team have their worst weekly batting average of the season .230ish...but I was also without star players for most of the semi-final week (Reyes, Rollins, Utley, Cruz). In the end...I still had a chance to win Sunday. My pitchers let me down...4 SPs managed only 1 W (tied the wins category) and Zack Greinke (and Moscoso) had low WHIP performances for my opponent allowing him to flip the WHIP category. If I take WHIP and Ws then I have a 5-5 tie and win the week. Hell...even just a few more Ks from Price and Dempster and I take Ks and if Price wasn't pulled early I get his W and take both Ws and Ks. In the end...it is just a game. That...and I only manage one team a season (did two teams once...it was too much). So...for you guys that manage 4 teams a season...you have multiple chances to win each season...I have just one...and I am fine with that.
To all my haters...you are free to continue being dumbasses!!! Pathetic dumbasses that follow my fake baseball team! LMAO!!!

Timmy, first off, fuck you too, and the rest of my points in no particular order: This thread was for Dick Strong who is a dick and likes to think he's better than everyone else at fantasy baseball (a HUGE deal in life), so I posted his fantasy profile and showed everyone that according to his record, he isn't.
Also, Nobody cares about you or your leagues. As far as me being a weak manager, I don't claim to be one of the greatest, but I'm pretty good. This year I will finish 3rd or 4th in my winner's H2H league (missed the championships by 1W and 0.02 ERA thanks to Brandon Morrow's shutout on Sunday that week). I'm in the championships in my other H2H league, winning 8-2, I'm 1st in a roto league by 12.5 points, and 2nd in my last roto league (look how I had to fight and claw from last place after a horrible SP draft).
Last year I finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. In 2009 I did terrible because I couldn't be active for reasons out of my control from late June to early September. In my first year on Yahoo, 2008, I also finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. I think that record speaks for itself. And again, I've never claimed to be the greatest, just better than Dick Strong if you go by records.
Anyway, I'm done bashing Dick and any other dicks like yourself. There's no point. I'll just add you to the very exclusive list of fucking retards on my ignore list. See ya.

Who Mike P...you really are a dumbass.
Nobody has heard of Jesus Montero? Really?
Nobody has heard of Dayan Viciedo? The best bat in the CWS organization (majors or minors).
Nobody has heard of Peter Bourjos? He of the quadruple-double this season. (double digit 2B, 3B, HR, and SB) Quick...name me all the players with a quadruple-double in their careers.
Nobody has heard of Omar Infante? One of the best utility knives in real baseball and fantasy baseball...and a MLB all-star.
Nobody has heard of Jesus Guzman? Maybe...but he is a five tool player. Compare his professional baseball numbers to guys named Domonic Brown and Jason Heyward (people own them you know).
Sorry, Mike P...you are a dumbass. YOU are the one highlighting YOUR lack of baseball acumen.
Keep trying, Skippy.
