Curse of the Bambino, reincarnated


Curse of the Bambino, reincarnated

My All Time Greats league, at the mid way break, I was offered M.Sherzer (at the time was a lg.leading 12-3, 2.24) for my T. Cobb (269, 4 HRs, 46 SBs). My OF still had T. Williams, M. Ramirez, W. Mays so I figured offense would barely suffer while drastically improving pitching, which in this type of league, is King. But.....after 3 starts now, Sherzer is 0-2, 1 ND, with 3.9 era in those starts! WTF. Curse of the Cobb?

Re: Curse of the Bambino, reincarnated

3 starts is a small sample size, give it a little while longer. Could go either way...

Re: Curse of the Bambino, reincarnated

Don't feel that bad.....I'm in 2 All Time Greats Leagues and am last in both. Just can't figure them out. Never had a winning record in ANY of the leagues I played in.

Those leagues are tough. Just to hit 250 is a tall order, and most owners seem to know what players will excel the most. Tough competition of experienced owners. But really good pitching seems to be more important than OBP, OPS, HRS, SBS, FLD %

I'm only in 1 ATG anyway, and it's in between seasons... I prefer fav teams leagues myself 😁

Re: Curse of the Bambino, reincarna

I'm still learning with them for sure. Is a challenge for sure, but at same time, I do love it because I feel it will improve me overall as a player here.
