Fantasy Baseball Update: Rookie Regrets, I Have a Few

Turns out that there's more to this fantasy baseball stuff than mere pretending.
For if fantasy baseball is truly to be the stuff of dreams, then by all rights, my club should be in first.
But who'da thunk that it actually takes skill to excel at it. Certainly not my editors, otherwise they might have chosen someone who knew what he was doing.
But I shan't give up! In for a pence, in for a pound.
I have so much more to think about than my own plummeting points and clicks on The Daily Player. I have the League of Other Extraordinary Fantasy Teams to consider.
Even though my team's in last place, I may yet figure prominently in the spoiler role.
For the league leaders to achieve baseball glory, they'll have to contend with my cellar dwellars who have nothing left to lose and something to gain. I'm not really sure what that might be yet. Sounds good enough to be one of those empty-headed jock analyses, though.
So, our last place team will go out with a song, as we play out the string and not phone it in:
I Blew it My Way
About how I handled the opening draft
I have a few, so let's here mention
At the opening bell
I didn't know
That you could select
From different uniforms and a logo
During the player draft
I just didn't know
I chose from my heart
And not further below
I had, Hunter Pence (may substitute your favorite player),
In the lineup
But since he got injured
I thought I should replace him
With someone active
But then my fantasy roster was full
So we took each and every highway
Later, when he was better
I couldn't get Pence anymore
No, he was already gotten
Now the record shows,
I took the fantasy blows
And blew it my way
For what is a Yahoo Fantasy rookie manager
What's he got?
If not a magic elf
Then not a lot
Now, the end of the schedule is near
I face…Jane Curtin
Through the blistering and chaotic Yahoo Fantasy Baseball Season
I took the blows and I blew it myyyyy way
