F*** YOU JAMES RUSSEL!
un f***ingbelievable.
Samardzija gets pulled with a 2 run lead and Russel immediately allows a walk then a bases clearing double and all of a sudden the Cubs are losing, which is perfectly normal for that pathetic franchise, and Sharky is no longer in line for the W.
The Cubs bullpen is such a goddamn joke.

Either let Shark face another batter or dont even throw him out there for the 7th.

I'm desperate, fellas. I honestly don't know what to do or where to turn anymore. The amount of injuries I've had to deal with this year has moved past sad, past comical, into UTTERLY IMPOSSIBLE levels.

Granderson - DL (Probably out till July)
Stanton - DL (Same)
Kinsler - DL (Same)
Lawrie - DL (Not the best player, but that makes 4 of my 5 keepers on the DL at the same time)

Keep in mind, this is a 20 team league, where decent replacements can't just be picked up.

Then yesterday:

Brandon Morrow - DL
Brandon McCarthy - DL

I'm less than 0.10 away from regaining the lead in ERA, and I wake up to see that Ryu is scratched with a foot injury and he was my only pitcher left to go today, so my opponent can bench all of his guys to wrap up ERA and WHIP.

I'm slipping down the standings and 3 of my best 4 players won't play a game for the next MONTH. What can I do? No one can possibly be expected to put up with this much bad fortune all at the same time. Anyone have a way to check if my team clubhouse is built on a cursed burial ground? Any good luck superstitions? I'll take anything at this point.

Dom Brown just cannot be stopped right now. Lovin him as an owner, even more so as a Phillies fan. ;-D

I had Brown for a week in early May but dropped him due to no room for him and not being terribly impressed watching his ABs. !+)

This is where having a deep bench helps. Had 3 hitting cats locked up, no chance in avg and was behind in steals, so I slotted in Juan Pierre. Sure enough, he and Andrus both pick one up and I win the category ;-D

Fresh off of their sweep of the Yankees the Mets get swept by the Marlins. :-D

Angels have lost 3 in a row to the Astros. Stick a fork in them.

Might want to take that fork out. It's not even the all star break yet.
