Picture this:  it's the year 2098, the world is a nuclear wasteland.  Buildings are merely empty crumbling shells.  The sky is an orange, purple color, constantly highlighted by dust clouds and freque

Yes, this includes myself...

Don't get so down, take a mental day or two of rest like you said. Set and forget and walk away. I'll give you a nickels worth of free advice-its a long haul. Its easy to say be patient its early, but

Team has been scuffling through weak offensive production with Yelich, Rendon, and Marte. Pitching keeping things competitive during most weekly matchups (H2H league).

First Rendon comes back and starts hitting. News is Yelich to be activated soon. Marte making progress. Things looking good.

Then, in a matter of three days

1. Dustin May done until 2023

2. Rendon out again after bashing a ball off his knee

3. Yelich out again, indefinitely this time.

This season sucks.

I’d been cruising along kind of okay watching other teams’ rosters get depleted by injuries and feeling mostly lucky.    Not anymore though with Robert, Castellanos, deGrom, d’Arneau, and Yelich (again) welcoming me to the injury club.  It seems like every year we all say “how bad the injuries are this year” but this time it’s getting true for me.

I'm sitting here staring at my weak MI spot in an AL only league and comparing Amed Rosario to Cesar Hernandez like there is any difference between either player, they both suck and so does having to sift through names like Mendick and Holt just to get ABs, and don't even get me started on the 2nd catcher spot 🤢🤮

I can deal with guys underperforming. That is on me. I made choices that didn't pan out. 

Watching the injuries pile up is just incredibly frustrating. Alex Verdugo was scratched from today's lineup with back trouble. My offense is now missing Verdugo, Cody Bellinger, Ke'Bryan Hayes, Alejandro Kirk, Jean Segura, and J.D. Davis. My pitching just lost Dustin May for the season and beyond. I really would have liked to see what this team could do if it can get anywhere close to healthy.

I have played in numerous “only” leagues we never had those dreaded CI or MI spots. They are difficult enough with just the regular INF. Do you use 3 or 5 OF?

Betts and Seager have been so disappointing this year.  I really thought Seager was going to end up being a top 20 pick next year but so far I was dead wrong.  Long season I know so maybe there is still hope.

I picked Betts 4th overall ( over Trout Turner  Cole deGrom) .  Then I picked up Giolito pick 21 then I took Seager pick 28 with Turner Story Tatis Lindor and Bo all off the board at SS and thought I was all set. I am in 10th place of 12 teams for this team LOL

one positive note thou about Betts and Seager is they won't lose playing time or their 1-2 hitting positions over a long slump so keep them plugged in and pray it ain't to much longer they start hitting.

Welp we both did the same exact thing with our picks of Betts and Seager.  I happened to take Harper over Giolito in the 2nd round and then Alonso in the 4th but I am really do regret not taking Trout.  I even told myself just take Trout just take Trout but nope I wanted to be greedy and get those 20+ SBs.
