Let me know if anyone backs out... sorry I missed this thread.

Bill- Pujols- no brainer.

Reyes would be great IF we scored triples along w/stolen bases, but we don't. Pujols hits for more average, HRs, RBI, and is pretty close in Runs if he stays healthy.

Slim would draft Reyes first. Or Ichiro...

Actually IMO, Jose Reyes is no better than third, and he's probably closer to 4th or 5th, but draft whoever you want. Only clowns like Steve openly criticize other people's draft decisions before the season even starts, as if he actually knows anything that some magazine didn't tell him. And stop trying to figure out who I'd draft Steve, I'd write it all down and sell it to you for $8, but then you might be able to beat me.

Oh, and by the way, in case anyone hasn't noticed. I am pretty competitive. But unless you start shit with me (As Steve did) I will not pick on you. Unfortunately for Steve, since that fateful moment a few years ago when he first opened his mouth to talk trash to me, I have decided that he will never defeat me. I will continue to crush him in fantasy sports, and probably at hurling insults (He's just not very good at it) until he publically weeps and says that I am his daddy. I hope it takes a REALLY long time, I have a lot of pent up agression.

Pretty easy to give you shit @ your fantasy when you suck as bad as you do...

I know- you play with the best managers in all of Yahoo fantasy baseball.

And if you take Reyes before 10th you're...eh...even worse than I thought.

Pick him, please... It leaves one more better player for me to pick...

When you are worse than I, what does that make you? You've still never shown me up with anything but your ineptitude. I guess we'll find out in a few weeks what you are made of, but I have nothing but the lowest of expectations for your performance.

Um... you are completely out of touch with reality. Congratulations. You have no idea how to play fantasy baseball if you expect anyone to leave Jose Reyes on the board until after 10. He's been in the top tier fantasy point producers in the league for a couple years now (last year he was third). He is clearly the best 5 tool shortstop in the league right now, (there are up-and-comers that I think could be better,but probably not this year) and the numbers drop off after him is immense. Jeter is close in most stats, but its hard to rectify the differential between a 12-26 steals a year to Reyes' 60+ steals a year. I promise that if he's still around at pick 6 (which I highly doubt) I will take him off the board myself, and you can suck an egg.

In one league, s**head. Let's see about this one.

Side bet?

Will you stop your incessant whining and addressing everyone with your faux-superiority complex when I beat you again this year? That is all the incentive I need.

More better? Come on Stevie... There is a more better way to say this.

If I had a red pen, I'd circle this and give you a C-

Let me explain ignoramus. I'll go S-L-O-W so you understand it...

for me to draft

It means I can select another player who's better than Reyes if you pick him. (Reyes).

Understand now?

I'll go you one better. When I win I'll even play with you in another league so I can win 2 out of 3. Then another to win 3 out of 4...And another for 4 of 5.

And...and...well, you get my drift...
post #179 of 1312
And what's really hilarious is you've played baseball once, and come in 6th out of 10.

This should be fun...

Oh, I understood what you meant when you first typed it. Unfortunately for you, that doesn't change the fact that using the words more and better together in pretty much any circumstance is incorrect. What you SHOULD have said, if you had more than half a grasp of the English language, is: "Pick him, please... A better player will then become available for me" or "Pick him, please... It leaves a superior player for me to draft..." Or something along those lines. Go ahead, ask your editor (whom I am beginning to suspect is both immensely talented AND patient). I'm sure he'll back me up. Oh and as a side note, there are exactly two players "better" than Reyes in the only category that really matters - points. For arguing with me, and yet again, being proven incorrect... you get to wear the dunce cap. Of course, you should probably be ashamed of yourself, since you've now had your grammar corrected by a 26 year old forklift driver who makes less than $25k a year, almost didn't graduate from High School, and has yet to finish the two year community college degree he's been unofficially working on for five years. How dumb do you feel now?
