I never thought I'd say this about anyone, but your arrogance makes me cringe almost as much as MisterKenobi's.  Almost.

Food for thought.

Well, I'll try to crank it up another notch, I'd hate to be second best.

To those who rejected my trade -

I offered Matt a deal for a closer and we went back and forth a bunch of
times and settled on the deal that we accepted twice, and had rejected
twice.  After that happened we talked to Juan who said it was fine with him,
and Chris who actually thought that Matt was probably going to get burned on
1 or both of those players and he was fine with the deal, and obviously Matt
and myself are fine with it.

So that leaves Rob, Brent, and Scott who are holding me up.  Fellas, I do
not need protection from you three, I WON the football league last year and
I'm 3rd out of 12 in basketball.  I know what I am doing.  I read fantasy
magazines whenever I can.  You guys make fun of the fact that I traded for
Helton from Matt last year and look what he did in the second half of the
season; when he came back from the leg injury in August: .376 BA, 9 HR and 36
RBI in 40 games.

Let me explain something to you guys.  I am in last place in saves and I
have virtually no chances of making that up.  I took Foulke thinking he
was my rock and now he's not even a closer anymore and Rob already took his
replacement.  I have an excess of starting pitching I have freaking last
year's Cy Young award winner Colon, I have Peavy, I have Schilling, Mussina,
Clemens who may come back, and Sheets.  So I have a starter to deal.  Matt
loves Sheets, and wants to bet on the fact that he's not going to be hurt
again like he is at some point every year.  I think Duke can be almost as
good as Sheets and Sheets gets hurt every year.  I didn't even draft him
intentionally, I wasn't there for that part.

Last year Zach Duke was my best pitcher in the 2nd half, he won 8 games in
under 3 months and had an ERA at 1.81 with K's.  And that's just his rookie
year.  I like him, he was on my team last year, and I want him again.

Jose Valverde is the 'Backs closer, he's 26 years old and he didn't become
the closer until August of last year and he still saved 15 games and struck
out SEVENTY FIVE in 66 innings.  His ERA was 2.44 and WHIP 1.07.  This isn't
a worthy closer for my team?!  He's a 4 category stud in the position that I
need.  What's Jose Valverde doing this year as closer so far?  3 IP, 2 for 2
in saves chances, and K'd 4 in 3 IP.  I want him.  And I need him.

I picked up Gagne when Matt dropped him last week but I can't even use him
for at least 2 freaking months.  Matt's willing to take him back with Sheets
and has a closer to spare.

And I like Ivan Rodriguez, got a problem with that?  I'm dropping Johjima
when my trade goes through.  But I don't even care if Matt throws him into
the deal or not, he can keep him if he wants.  If you guys would knock it
off already.

So would you guys please butt out of my business so I can get something I
need and get rid of players I don't even want or can't use?  I always extend
you guys the same courtesy and I really don't think what you're doing is
fair at all.

Kevin?  Did you type this in Word or copy it from an email or anything like that before you posted it here?  The formatting of the text (i.e. how the lines don't go all the way to the end of the window) makes it pretty obvious that you didn't type it up in the Post Reply window.

Just... curious.

I copied and pasted my stats into my gmail and sent them to a third party to re-read so I didn't look absolutley retarded when I posted it. Just to see if it made sense. Gmail saved my side of the conversation as well, so rather than re-type it, I just ctrl+c and pasted.

Is that ok?

You'll have to forgive Rob, Kevin, he's in last place and doesn't really know what to do with himself right now.

Hey Rob, catch Zach Duke's start yesterday?

What is this verb you allude to you called "trade"?  We can do that in this league?

Sure, as long as no set of any 3 owners independently object to a given proposal.

The 3 of you are looking pretty bad in week 1 of your veto.  We'll see how smart you were as the season unfolds.  I'm not expecting much.

Yeah, I'm pretty much crapping my drawers two weeks in.  There's no one I could possibly find on the waiver wire to adjust my roster.  Congrats on winning again this year. :-*

Bug - I meant "looking bad" in "week 1 of the veto" just like it says.  In other words, your decision on the trade.  Look at outcome of the starts Duke vs. Sheets. 

You misread my post.
