I am really terrible at fantasy sports. REALLY terrible. I did finish second once in basketball one year. But, other then that (and for that I say 'even blind squirrels find a nut every now and then'), I am pretty much the office cellar dweller.
See, I am dumb enough to join an office league with my friends in which we play for free lunches every week. Naturally, I get a few free lunches a year. Maybe four. But I also end up paying for about 60,000 of them, too. Not a great profit margin there.
Anyways, I approach each fantasy draft with a clean slate and get ready to annihilate my competition. And sometimes my draft picks do well for a bit—if they show up at all—and I go 5-1 before finishing the year 1-13-1 (or something like that). I stink. Like Limburger.
And this year was no different. I currently stand at 2-4-1 (not as terrible as past performances) in my fantasy baseball league, but I find myself loaded with players that lots of sources convinced me would be awesome but have actually sucked holy wind.
Here are seven (hear that? seven!!!!!) terrible fantasy choices I made this year in MLB fantasy.
*stats are as updated as I could get them. Games were going on while I was writing this so, we'll see. Don't get mad if I'm off an integer or two.
