I have the future of my team (at least rotation) in my 24 tm dynasty going today. Skaggs, Harvey and Holland. This could be a great 1/2/3 or they could fizzle. Unfortunately I'm in the loser's bracket this year.

I know there's 12 days left in my Round 1 H2H Playoff matchup, but facing Scherzer, Wainwright, and even Bailey yesterday put me in a huuuge hole, especially with my Lincecum coming up 1 out short of a QS. I've got serious ground to make up, and am less than thrilled at what I've got going today... Zach McAllister @SEA (yet he's a dog to Iwakuma), Arroyo @PHI (yet he's a pick 'em with Worley), and Miley vsMIA (CGSO plz?)...

After the immediate initial thought of, "I really need to spend 3 minutes this girl", my second inclination was to...

Bonifacio back to the DL.
Marlins placed OF Emilio Bonifacio on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee sprain.
Bonifacio made an early exit from Tuesday night's game and underwent an MRI on Wednesday morning that revealed the sprain. He is likely to miss at least three weeks. Gorkys Hernandez started in center field in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.

at least 3 weeks. ugh.
