Almost every year I have 2 or 3 teams in every sport for Fantasy pools and almost every year I really like my rosters.  I'm usually competitive and have won my fair share of pools.  After every draft, I usually come away with the feeling that "I drafted really well.  I like my chances."

I even said it this year.  I mean you have to have confidence... YOU picked your own team.  Well this year, both my teams are terrible and there is no way I'll be coming back.  I'm already dead in the water after a few weeks.

I have two teams and my rosters include the following players:

Granderson - Slumping

Cano - Slumping even worse

Farnsworth - Injured

Bailey - Injured

Youkilis - Injured

Ellsbury - Injured

Rivera - Injured

Reyes - Batting like .240

My last pick on one of my teams was Abreu... who was recently cut from the team.  I can't even get lucky with the 200th pick the pool.  I mean the only way I could get any worse is if I had drafted Pujols and Joey Bats with the 1st overall pick in my leagues.  It's bad enough that my 2nd, 3rd and 4th picks in both pools have all been hurt or playing like crap.

In both leagues combined, I have 6 spots for closers.  As you can see, 3 of my closers are hurt. 

Some of my other bums: Ike Davis, Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, Heath Bell

 

I thought the Angles offense would improve drastically with Pujols and I have Wells, Hunter and Trumbo.  They haven't been bad, but without Pujols dominating... they aren't getting the easy pitches, runs and RBI chances I thought they'd get.

I've pretty much thrown away my money already.  Sad, but true.
