Hey! I just wanted one other place to air my whining.

I read the matchups wrong and left Hiroki Kuroda on the bench in favor of two-start Eovaldi. In fact, Kuroda had two starts this week and is arguably my best pitcher. He's approaching 100 points this week.

I'm playing against the 10-2 Camp Campana. He's up by around 115 right now, with an incredible league-high score.

So, if I lose against the mighty Campanas, and WOULD have won without my own mistake, then I'm taking a sabbatical from BNFL. Seriously, just TOO frustrated.

Ok, I might check in to see if my shiny new David Wright is doing well or if Uggla stopped pooping his pants, but that's it.

Also, a bunch of trades this week. What are everyone's thoughts? The trades themselves are interesting (only 1 or 2 do I consider slightly unbalanced--though I didn't veto), but I think we need to remind all that, when proposing trades or offering players, take a good look at other teams and see what exactly you need or are looking for. It helps to say "I have X and Y, and I'm looking for A and B" rather than "Anybody want X?"

Speaking of, my disdain for my team is leading me to consider moving some of my offensive pieces. It'd take a haul, but I would consider it. Already shopped away Brantley and Altuve this week, and threw in Gallardo for good measure. Who's next? Andrus? Uggla? Ethier? A.J. Ellis?

Talk to me peeps- my phone line is open.

Also, let's all cheer for Eovaldi tonight- if he does well, that means my Hiroki debacle won't be as costly and I won't have to go MIA for 2 weeks. We can all cheer for that, right?

Caleb out.

Or, we could all root for my players, so that I beat you by a solid 200.

I'm close to winning 2 in a row for the first time this season.
Peg: Oh Al! Did you miss me?
Al: With every bullet, so far.

That was a very, very interesting week. And heartbreaking. Oh well.

I'm working on a deal with 23ryan, but send any ideas you want about trades- or just message me what you might be looking for or could part with. It's amazing how many times there are trades out there that can legit better both teams- even with superstars or "keepers".

I do that all the time, there is a second screen where you have to say why you reported it. I've seen nothing.
