Fantasy Baseball Injuries
Some of the staff here at Football Fanatics are playing in a fantasy baseball league. It’s a 10-team head-to-head league with standard scoring. I’m taking this time to vent about my team and their pathetic performance through the first two months of the season. Currently I’m sitting in dead last with a 35-39-6 record… Zeke, from “Stump Zeke” is in first place with a 59-31-10 record. It’s a long season, so I’m not paniced yet, plus there are 6 teams under .500.
My excuse for being so bad right now is injuries. I swear half my roster has been on the DL at some point in the season. Kevin Youkilis, Jose Reyes, Jose Valverde, Brad Lidge, Edinson Volquez and now Roy Halladay have all missed time… and with the way Alfonso Soriano is playing he may as well be on the DL. Jose Reyes was my first pick in the draft and I’ve gotten about 3 weeks out of him. There is no time table on his return (I’m guessing late August).
If I can manage to pull it close to .500 by the MLB All-Star Game, I think I’ll have a good shot at making the playoffs. I just need my players to start playing like they should (Soriano, Oswalt …). Check out my roster, it’s not that bad is it?
