They might be the luckiest team of all time, but I'm still rooting for them.

Prince Fielder was going to get a day off today, but instead he's DH'ing. Just a heads up for those that might have benched him after seeing that he was sitting.

Also, how about a round of applause for Jamey Carroll hitting a home run last night. I knew you still had it in ya, kid.

I don't have much to do this week, my H2H teams are all locked in or out of the playoffs, and I don't see my position changing much in roto in the final month.

I'm starting Profar on like all my teams for the remainder of the week. If he gets 2 ab's and k's twice I don't care it won't matter. I wish Billy Hamilton would get called up I need steals on every team that didn't get Trout :-D

I haven't had a good pitching day since like 2 Mondays ago and my relievers have been crapping on my ERA. I dropped Jansen but am hoping to reclaim him if the news is good. Marco Estrada and Kris Medlen have been my two aces the past few weeks. I'm going to be high on both of them for next year.

Starting Greinke @OAK and IPK @SF, and sitting Stults @LAD with limited starts, seeking QS/W, and him facing Kershaw. I'm sure I'll regret that as he throws 7.2 shutout innings...

I'm always going to route against the Yankees. they could potentially miss the playoffs this year, even with an added wild card team. sounds good to me. they mentioned tonight on PTI, the last time both the Yankees and Red Sox missed the playoffs was 1993.

Dan Uggla has become a bench player.
Uggla has been demoted to a part-time role, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Recommendation: Martin Prado, who is starting again at second base Tuesday, will remain the primary option at the keystone for Atlanta. It will be very interesting to see how things play out with Uggla this winter, as he still has three years remaining on the five-year, $62 million deal he signed with Atlanta back in January of 2011.
(Rotowire.com)

my first thought was noo!! Uggla has been my 2B in a 16 team keeper league. now I had to pick up Mark Ellis. then I was thinking, wait, Mark Ellis is probably actually a better option than Uggla anyway since Uggla has struggled so bad this year.
