Usually only the night before the draft. I equate it to the feeling on Christmas Eve when you're a kid, anxiously awaiting the next day and seeing what's under the Christmas Tree. I usually lay in bed wondering who's going to fall to me, what sleepers I'm gonna steal, etc. During the season not so much, unless it's like a giddy loss of sleep like when I used my 3rd waiver priority on Ryan Braun his rookie season and it was good enough.

In previous years I've traded away my west coast pitchers just so I could get more sleep not having to stay up until 1am EST watching the games.

I could just move to the west coast too :-)

Not really. But I do dream of picking up players I want 1-2 times a week. A couple nights ago I dreamed that Carlos Santana had a 3 HR game and I picked him up (seriously). :-?

Ya, I'll loose sleep any time a player I want is coming off waivers and I want the player, but I don't put a claim on him. I usually either wait up until waivers are processed, or I set an alarm and wake up in the middle of the night.

I'm in CST, so it's usually around the 2:15-2:45am mark that waivers are processed. I know it's dumb to wait up to grab players, but one of the managers in my league is living in Asia for the time being, and he usually snaps players up players that clear waivers around 3:00am as it's the middle of the afternoon for him.

He only asked a question. That was a bit rude. You should work on your friendliness.

Lose sleep over fantasy baseball? Yup. Fantasy hockey and football too. I think I take it just a little too seirously sometimes.

Yeah, I am the same way. I get this excited before draft day and the night before the season begins. I pop out of bed and run to my computer to look at eveything once again and ready up. Yup only in fantasy baseball............ :-)
