What do Stephen Malkmus and Colby Cosh have in common? It seems they both drafted Milwaukee Brewers OF Corey Hart for their fantasy baseball teams last year, based on preseason assurances from the team that he would play every day, and then gave up on him just in time to watch him become the terror of the National League. He sat on my league's waiver wire from May 10 to June 1: Fenwick got to him first once Ned Yost came to his senses. Not coincidentally, Matt ended the year as Alberta Baseball Confederacy champion.
I also believed J.P. Ricciardi when he said that B.J. Ryan was just having minor back trouble. That cost me the draft pick I traded for BJR and the keeper tag I used on him. This is how you finish the season 41-51*: by trusting too much.
*Note: horrible record was just good enough to snag playoff berth and beat defending league champ in nailbiting storybook classic of a division semifinal
