You have ADD and you have no idea how this sentence will end because you’re already reading the comments. You drafted Jay Bruce and traded him for Vernon Wells. You’re glad Crapolanco has 3rd base eligibility so you can trade away Youkilis. If Ellsbury isn’t DL’d soon, you’re dropping him for Kevin Millwood. You’re trigger finger is itching and only Scott Podsednik can scratch it. You’re also potentially losing your league in April.Please, blog, may I have some more?
H2H, Head-to-Head, whatever you want to call it doesn’t change a lot from our 2010 fantasy baseball rankings. There are 300 billion suns in the Milky Way galaxy. There are 100s of billions of galaxies in the universe. There are at least 256,000 planets exactly like Earth. Yet, there’s one Albert Pujols. He’s still number one. And so on and so forth. The strategy to play H2H changes. You aren’t hoping Dunn hits 40 homers by October, but whether or not he’ll hit two homers on Sunday or if you should sit him to try and win steals. It’s all about the match-ups, ya’ll! So you want to build a team that can match-up well with any other team. Anyway, let’s look at some Head-to-Head fantasy baseball draft strategy:

Just to clear my head the other day, I threw on some bicycle shorts, jumped in my El Dorado and went for a spin. Cause that’s how guys with a ‘stache roll. If you didn’t know, know you do. Consider yourself informed. As I was rocking out to some Don Henley, I was thinking back on some guys that helped me win leagues last year. Xavier Nady – Thanks, X-Man! Jonathan Broxton, you da man!

I put “Should I trade Frenchy?” into Google’s French translator. The translator steered me towards Kayak.com. So naturally, I flew to France. Stayed at a lovely hostel in the Arrondissement 4 right in the heart of the fabled Latin Quarter. The joie de vivre from the mix of students was intoxicating (and so was the wine!).Please, blog, may I have some more?
And by breakdown I don’t mean of the crying variety with Zach Greinke suffering from an abulia. (Sorry, it was the Word of the Day.) My favorite fantasy baseball writer, Eric Karabell, did a breakdown of the Royals pitchers.

Felix Hernandez looked dominant yesterday. Most impressive thing, eight strikeouts to one walk. Least impressive thing, it was against the A’s. Most reason for concern, he threw 115 pitches. He’s already complained of arm fatigue, why is he pitching the ninth inning?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Ok, I wasn’t going to report this until a month in, but since Rudy decided it was time, it’s time. As you can see from the league, through two weeks, I’m more ‘pert than some, and less ‘pert than two. What can we take away from my two weeks of league ‘perting?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Aybar’s headed to the DL and Rays have purchased the contract of Evan Longoria. Think once they bring him up, he’s here to stay, because there’s no reason to start the clock on him unless they’re going to play him. Unless, of course, he’s terrifically awful.Please, blog, may I have some more?
In today’s daily notes, I’ll look at how badly Pedro Martinez’s struggles were against the Marlins up until the injury and everything else I saw in today’s major league games:
Dan Uggla, Luis Gonzalez took Pedro Martinez deep. Beltran took an awful route to a ball for a Hanley triple to score an AA chip.Please, blog, may I have some more?
