Why have I failed so miserably?

Special K: disasters count. gotta avoid as many as possible 6/14 update, mixed bag: 66 different SP 111 GS 717 K 44 W 54 SV 3.204 ERA 1.167 WHIP That ERA/WHIP has to be competitive with top-line drafted SP. The K somewhat inflated by GS, but will stand up with filling SP slots with CL/MR. W is the r...
