In my 12 team keeper league.......I've lost the following for different parts of the year.

1) A-Rod
2) J.Rollins
3) Scott Kazmir
4) Yovani Gallardo (this one really hurt)
5) Chone Figgins


Replaced A-Rod with Bill Hall.......J.Rollins with O.Cabrera........Kazmir with Johnathan Sanchez (who I'll be now keeping, even with Kazmir's return)......Gallardo won't be replaced, will just take Kazmir's spot on the DL.

Figgins.......will likely be replaced by A.Hill, if he ends up on the DL.


This is a real competitive league........and Im pretty stoked that I've been able to swing keeping my team in second place, despite all the injuries.........(it's H2H, and Im still undefeated as well)......hoping if-when I get healthy I'll be able to take over first place.

Big 14 team league so talent is spread pretty thin as it is. I've lost:

* #1 draft choice Jimmy Rollins
* #3 draft choice Curtis Granderson for 3 weeks earlier
* #5 draft choice Jorge Posada (leaving me with basically no catcher)
* One of my two best pitchers in Gallardo
* My first drafted closer, Chad Cordero

Thats just my top-end talent... I've had other injuries (like Wandy Rodriquez and such, but at least those are somewhat replaceable)... But with so many top guys from my team going down, I feel like my team is decimated :(

How about you...


Edit that with Figgins... now my #1, #3, #4, #5 draftpicks have all succumbed to injuries along with #1A starting pitcher and #1 closer. This is getting ridiculous. Its a new guy every day!

I feel like we should start a collection for you or something...

I guess the saying, "There's always next year" is appropriate here, Merlin....

I lead my 12-team league in OBP, yet I'm 11th in RBI and 10th in Runs. Figure that one out! !+)

Not to mention I started the season with even more players on the DL (Kazmir and Big Unit) and the suck ass Detroit team of Mags, Polanco, and Edgar.

i thought i had it bad with arod, posada, hermida, victorino, and the struggle that is verlander.
my other team has to suffer through bedard, tulo, soriano (and then moylan), victorino, and the awfulness of johjima

I have Arod, Rollins, Myers and RSoriano on my 14 team H2H competitive league.

This sucks, but at least when they come back...

Other players in my other leagues are....

Granderson (thank god his back!), Gallardo (Ew!), Borowski(expected a high ERA but didnt expect an injury!), A Soriano (Came back) and more. This year hurt already....

I feel your pain guys!
