Killing the Golden Bruce

Trading a player in the middle of a career year, and then having that player become completely useless for the rest of the season.

Re: Sell AP plus Gates for A Foster?

Thanks! I suppose that's true. I was looking at as trading my 3rd and 6th round picks for #1 overall, which sounds like a no-brainer, but AP could well outperform Foster this year if that knee problem that cropped up in week 1 becomes a long-term issue.

Sell AP plus Gates for A Foster?

Right now I'm thrilled that AP looked so good yesterday, but to be honest I think that at some point this year the wear and tear will shut him down. I just received an offer to trade my Gates and AP for Arian Foster, and even with his injury history I think Foster is a safer bet on a better team. I'...

Re: Is your team bad or just unlucky?

Great thread and an excellent reminder. Even without the anomalous stats to back it up, there are a lot of guys with solid track records who are struggling right now. It might not show up as bad luck, since they might really be off with their timing or mechanics, but they're still perfect buy low ta...

Re: Histatia

I'm always one of the first to go after hyped prospects, so I wind up with them on my roster and then realize that I have no idea what to do with them. I call them Pet Rocks. Everyone's gotta have them, and once they're on your team they're practically useless. (Emilio Bonifacio '09 was my favorite ...

Re: Random thoughts

I just returned from vacation and discovered that I've been immortalized in the Razzball Glossary! I'm somebody now! Millions of people look at this (site) everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity - your name in print - that makes people. I'm in print! Things are going to start happening ...

I think I've found a variation on Sonovabench that needs it's own name. I'm watching Colorado score at will today, and CarGo isn't in the game because of a routine day off. Holy Sit!! What do you think of a term for guys like Reynolds and Pena, who really have only two possible outcomes from an at-b...
