So i won the league last year. This year I did my usual over-prep of draft work, and with the exception of Brett Anderson, I liked everyone I bought (but Brett was only 10 bucks, and for that K-rate I'd take a little injury). luckily this is a H2H league, so me losing for the next two weeks isnt terrible. But you gotta look at this team!
Fielder (where's my homers you fat idiot?)
Brandon Phillips (hit a higher average, jerk!)
Chase Headley Lamarr (replace my $3 chris davis)
Alex Gonzalez (ride the wind!)
Jason Bay (1st homer today, woo! thanks for nothing, jerk)
Josh Willingham (ride the streak for a few days)
Jay Bruuuuuuuuuuce (more like Jay Boos)
Justin Smoak (He's gonna hit like 60 HR, right? RIGHT?)
Jon Lester (stink, stank, stunk)
Colby Lewis and CJ Wilson (Texas pitchers? Oh, this can't end badly AT ALL!)
Wade Davis (Let's buy the rookie in the AL east, that's a great plan, Past Self!)
Franklin Morales and K-Rod (mediocre, but we all need closers)
Ryan Madson and Chad Qualls (especially bad ones)
and now, the BN/DL, currently ALL FULL. I have no bench spots now, thanks to these injuries
Nelson Cruz, Jimmy Rollins, Jason Hammel, Jorge de la Rosa, Brett Anderson, Brian Fuentes
I figure the only really droppable guy in there is Hammel, and as I'd be replacing him with Jason Vargas, Jose Contreras, Will Venable, Andruw Jones, Chris Young (who I just dropped, ugh), Scott Rolen (i'd rather have headley lamarr, IMO), the un-needed Miguel Olivo, the also un-needed Adam Laroche (Laroche or Smoak, any opinions there?) Fernando Rodney, Joel Zumaya, or Edward Mujica, I think I'll keep him. Maybe pick up some of those hot OF hitters on a day off for my regulars.
Grey or anyone, is there any advice or tips for this predicament? Or do I go with the Animal House quote of "I suggest you begin drinking heavily?"
You should heckle Prince Fielder at a game and ask him that exact question. Can you package an injured guy and a healthy guy for two healthy guys?
