Three weeks in and I’m sure there’s some of you out there pressing as much as Carlos Gomez right now. Is it too soon to be worried that you’re falling behind in stolen bases? Probably not, but after next week we’ll be at a good point to stop and assess our teams as well as start scouring for trades to address whatever weaknesses we find. Or, to quote fellow leaguemate and frequent commenter MauledByPandas, “One more week until we can hit the (Joe) Panik button right?”. That’s about right I’d say. It’s still early folks and there’s no reason to be dropping a guy like Carlos Gomez or doing anything else crazy just yet.
Misery loves company and there’s plenty of misery with aces at the moment. Matt Harvey, David Price, Zack Greinke and Chris Archer have all had rough starts, leaving those that waited on starting pitching to giggle to themselves. Now Carlos Carrasco is down for 4-6 weeks and there’s RCL teams everywhere looking for a shoulder to cry on. Hang tough Razzballer, there’s plenty of fish in the stream for the next few weeks. In the meantime, form up your prayer octagons that both Carloses (Carlii?) will be alright by June and come check out the week that was in the RCLs.Please, blog, may I have some more?
