What’s The Sound Of A Broken Heart? When Your Dream Team Disappoints In The Playoffs

If you have a fantasy sports team, the chances are you’ve seen your fair share of disappointment. Even if you’re not in a fantasy league, you probably have your favorite team that can break your heart when they lose. I know I do.

The season is long and brutal, and it wears on the body and soul. By the time the playoffs come around, your players need to be at their peak level of athleticism and health. That’s why it can be so crushing to see them slump just as the post-season begins.

It’s like watching the love of your life walk away with someone else just as you were about to propose marriage. It hurts almost as much when it happens to our favorite athletes or fantasy sports players. The dream is there, but then it vanishes before our eyes, leaving us feeling empty inside.

Sometimes we don’t even realize how much we care until they let us down at the most important time of all: when they need to win and prove that they have what it takes to get the job done.

The Boston Red Sox are in the World Series. The Houston Astros, Cleveland Indians and Arizona Diamondbacks also made it. This is a nightmare for many fantasy owners, who had to watch as their superstars helped knock out their teams.

It’s hard to describe the feeling of having your season end in the playoffs. You finally get to the postseason and then your team gets knocked out early. It’s like when your favorite baseball team doesn’t make it to the playoffs, except worse. At least when your favorite team loses, you can blame bad front office decisions or injuries. But when your fantasy team loses? It was all you, baby!

Maybe your first baseman had a bad series, or maybe your starting pitcher didn’t have good command of his curveball on his worst day of the year. Whatever happened, it happened because of you. You drafted them; you put them in the lineup; you set their rotations and closings; you decided to go with that week’s hot pickup instead of someone proven but struggling.

And now you are left to stew over what went wrong for another year until next season comes around again and gives you hope that this will be the year you finally win it all… Only

Every October, a group of college buddies and I get together for a weekend of fantasy sports. There is a lot of drinking and there is a lot of trash-talking. We all have teams in football, hockey, and baseball (and even basketball). We pick our teams before the games start and we keep track throughout the season. The person with the best team at the end of the regular season wins each league.

There are, however, two additional prizes that we all covet: the playoff MVP and the championship trophy. These trophies go to whomever has the best team during the playoffs. And this is where things get interesting.

Because our fantasy sports drafts happen before we know which players will be on which real-life teams, everyone’s rosters are going to be full of guys who play for different teams in real life. As a result, once the playoffs start, it’s not uncommon for one player — especially in football — to have multiple players on their team playing against each other in real life.

For example: my fantasy football team had Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady going head-to-head in a playoff game last year. I ended up losing that week but winning my league championship at the end of the season.

This kind of problem

I’ve never been a fan of the NBA. I don’t know how to explain it, but it just doesn’t do it for me. I’m a baseball and football guy, through and through. But there is one thing about the NBA that I used to find fascinating: the concept of the “superteam”.

Back in 2011, LeBron James decided to leave his hometown team (the Cleveland Cavaliers) and move to Miami so he could join forces with two of his friends from high school (Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh) and chase championships. The move immediately made Miami the most hated sports franchise in America, but it also turned them into an instant favorite to win multiple titles. They did end up winning back-to-back titles in 2012–13, but lost in the finals twice more before James decided to return to Cleveland.

As a sports fan, I loved watching those Miami teams play against each other teams in the league. It was great seeing three superstars on the same squad playing at their best while they were all still relatively young (this was before “load management”). Unfortunately, even though they won two titles with that core group of players, they never really got over the

We’re four days into the MLB playoffs and it’s easy to see that some of the best-laid plans went awry. Some fans are riding high, perched on top of their teams as they sit back with their feet up and watch their team take down the competition.

Other teams are getting crushed game after game leaving owners with nothing but a bad taste in their mouths and a lot of questions. There are so many questions. What happened? Why did he strike out with the bases loaded? Why are we stuck watching only one game at a time?

Did you have one of these teams? Did your boys go down in flames? Are you left staring at your computer and wondering what happened?

Don’t worry, we feel you. And we’ve got the answers. Here’s what you can do when it all goes wrong.

It’s that time of year again. You know what I’m talking about. The time when you’re filled with dread and anxiety, when you can’t sleep at night, and when you finally burst into tears in front of your friends and family for no apparent reason. Yes, it’s Fantasy Baseball Playoffs time.

If you play fantasy baseball, then you understand how important it is to make the playoffs. For some people, making the playoffs is their entire fantasy baseball experience; it becomes a season long obsession that defines who they are as people and reminds them of the love they had for their father before he left them outside a K-Mart as a child.

For me, Fantasy Baseball Playoffs are one of the most important times in my life. It is a time full of hope and possibility. It is a time where destiny meets reality and I get to write down my dreams on Excel spreadsheets. And yet it is also a time where these dreams get crushed like little bugs by opposing teams who are so good that they could easily be mistaken for robots if they weren’t such big jerks.

It is during this time that I am reminded of an article I read recently where a scientist was asked why he did science
