DateQuestionAnswer
2008-03-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Re: Viciously Taunting Fantasy Opponents If someone traded Eric Byrnes at $13 for Bob Wickman at $31 prior to the 2007 season in a 7-keeper NL Only League, that's grounds to make fun of him for the rest of his life, right?
(Ryan from Santa Barbara)
He better have really needed saves, though to be fair, did anyone see Byrnes doing that last year? I think by taunting him, we justify Byrnes season, and I'm not ready to do that. (Marc Normandin)
