My players need to use some 'flaxseed oil" and "the cream and the clear" to stay healthy.

I currently have 6 DL players and an NA. I had 7 DL and an NA before Beckett came back. The problem is it's a dynasty and I can't just drop some of these guys or I lose them forever.

C. Cordero
Saltalamacchia (NA)

And as I mentioned, Beckett just came off the DL Sunday. The draft was last year, so Carpenter has 6 IP for my team since the draft over a year ago. %-6 :~(

I'm pretty cut throat when dealing with my DL/NA guys. I usually cut them unless they're complete studs.

On one team, I had to drop Andy LaRoche, Wily Mo Pena, and Colby Rasmus to clear space for BJ Ryan, Pedro Martinez, and Mike Cameron. They also just got back Josh Beckett. I put myself at a disadvantage by drafting a guy who I knew was heading for the DL when I got them (Ryan twice, Escobar, and Kazmir) though so I shouldn't really complain.

I am the opposite this year.
Last year I had a year-long ghost ship dynasty team, and a dynasty team with unlimited DL spots which I came second (I still ended up with 5 on the DL of this one).

In 2008 I have Pedro on one team and Gallardo on another and that's it. The unlimited DL team has zero players on the DL :-° :-L :-?

We have 3 DL spots and 4 Bench in my keeper... I have Soriano, Prior, Putz and Kazmir on the DL. Rollins is hobling, Pujols has no elbow and Zimmerman coming off wrist surgery. Yikes what the hell did I do? :-o

Dump Prior.

I grabbed him as a FA just to stash on the DL - but when I needed space and heard the first reports of shoulder pain I decided I'm not going to wait until June for a guy with his history who is still whining about pain. He was a free roster addition while I awaited early reports - and those reports are not encouraging enough.
