The only good thing about baby Dahl going away for a month is I can now handcuff Braun by picking up Thames because I know Ryan is gonna pull that hammy any day now.

These guys are babied more than ever and yet half the league is injured. I'm surprised these million dollar athletes can wipe their behinds without needing 7 months off. JFC already.

AL-only dynasty with 15 max keepers year to year

Andujar - paid real $$ to extend through next year

Severino - paid real $$ to extend through next year

Lindor...

and now Clevinger - paid real $$ to extend through next year

...decimated squad. Too early to pack it in for next year? I know it's a long season but it sure doesn't feel like it.

I hate it when you let in a last minute, emergency replacement into your competitive league who says they know what they're doing, yet they go and drop Eugenio Suarez 2 weeks into the season. Now I have to burn my #1 waiver for him even though I don't really need him because I already have 3 other guys with 3rd base eligibility, one of those being Yandy Diaz who I just picked up and was excited about but will now probably have to drop.

I know that seems like a lame gripe, or a good problem to have, but that kind of crap can screw up a league.

No bench bats right now with Gennett, Murphy and Upton on the IL.

 

Plus, arms are harder to come by but Boyd and Harvey are nothing special yet.

0-14 to start the day when I have 3 hitters on teams that scored 8 runs and another guy named J.D. Martinez...

I'll fully admit my team's OF is weak overall, but damn, it'd be nice if things weren't completely upside down right now and 20th Round players weren't half of the ones at the top of the player raters...

Edit: Mock cheering.  J.D. just got a hit and scored a run.  1-15.  Here we go!.... 🙄

Holy sh*t I thought I knew how to play fantasy baseball. 

 

Don't know now if I can recover era and whip in Roto. Not with my staff/pen. 

 

At at least I’m looking ok on offense. Guess I’ll fish for trades and hustle the wire. 

 

Can’t believe I’m already here April 9.

18 roster spots (12 starters) with 1 IL slot and the following out:

- Severino (6+ weeks)
- T. Turner (4-6 weeks?)
- Vlad (2-3 weeks away maybe?)
- Ryu... Had to drop when he went down and needed a bat with Turner out.

I also kind of screwed up drafting Muncy, who sits a lot against lefties. Not really a big deal with a healthy roster, but I drafted Vlad and Severino who I knew would be out for awhile so I probably should have picked a steadier player.

Good news is that I had a pretty strong roster to begin with, but it's going to be tough going for awhile likely getting in about 20 IP or so less than my opponents each week.

Went SP heavy in a 10T H2H league and thought I’d pile up some nice #’s today with DeGrom, Cole, Marquez and Lucchesi throwing today.  There were some #’s accumulated alright but they’re the wrong kind. 😂

 

...and this is the same league where I’ve lost K-levinger for months earlier this morning.  So much for SP being a strength.

Come on Bauer, you douche! You're supposed to be my ace. You can't even make it 6 innings vs the Tigers?!

Meadows just had to go and put up that statline from yesterday, right after I drop him in a few leagues for the likes of Clint Frazier or Vogelbach.  

Don't know what to make of the way Tampa Bay manages playing time 🤷‍♂️
