How many injuries can ruin a season?

Postby BaronVonVulturewins » Thu Jun 12, 2008 5:24 am

I feel like I'm getting close. Herewith, draft picks and injury status:

1st: Holliday (15 day, not a big deal)
5th: Furcal (out since beginning of May, maybe until All-Star break)
6th: Smoltz (done for year, maybe retiring)
8th: Zimmerman (out until All-Star break, maybe for season)
9th: Gallardo (out for season)

In the meantime, my 2nd and 3rd picks, Upton and Rios, are on the top of everyone's What Happened To Their Power? rankings.

So, in essence, I gave away four of my top ten draft picks. Luckily, picking up Volquez (traded for Morneau) and Bruce have kept me afloat -- in fact, I'm currently in 3rd. If any of these noodlebats start hitting, this may have a happy ending after all.

I can't blame injuries for derailing any of my teams but it's still a bit annoying.

Team 1: Peavy, Furcal, Wainwright - Losing Peavy and Furcal for all that time definitely took its toll...
Team 2: Weeks, Wainwright - Can't complain
Team 3: Ortiz - Don't feel as bad now that Pujols and Soriano are hurt.

My money league is cursed.
Drafted: Holliday, Tulowtizki, Lackey, Gallardo, Chad Cordero
Otherwise added: Santiago Casilla, Rafael Soriano, J.J Putz, Adam Wainwright

I should post a list of the rest of my team so you know whom to avoid going forward. Same as you though BVV, Hamilton, Bruce, and evidently Doumit are keeping me alive as FA pickups.
OCP... RCL #1

Doumit is killing it. KILLING IT. In the last four games he's given me more than Ramon Hernandez did in three weeks.

I love the DL drop.

The DL Drop? Sounds like Milton Bradley's dance.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
