Man, I've never wanted someone to go to the DL but I'm glad I don't have to decide if I should start or sit Beckett anymore.

No offense, OP, but that doesn't sound like a "no-man's land" at all. I can see several dead weights on your team, like Rodney and Joba, who you could toss to the WW to make room for stop-gap measures for your struggling offense. Rolen is pretty drop-worthy too, and Drew/Kendrick/Hawpe are all borderline guys with limited ceilings. Sure, Teix is a slow-starter and I don't know what's up with Haren/Beckett, but most of the rest of your team has limited upside. - A blog for political rants, fantasy sports, and thoughts from my twisted mind.

And IMO that's exactly what it is. It looks like a good roster to me, but I'm in the same situation in one league. You draft guys based on what you expected, what they've done in the past, but sometimes they just don't produce at that level again, and sometimes they get hurt.

It's often easier to recover from a bad team starting badly since you just cut guys loose, and pick up hot players who may be breaking out. But when you're top 5 picks aren't doing it, its hard to cut loose.
