The new player page layout is god awful.


This.

They even changed the content -- no way (no easy way, at least) to see career BvP splits. This is a massive downgrade.

Just wait till you get a peek at the Team Schedule page. Utterly usless!

I can't see any reason for the Twins to just give him away. The Twins have tons of money to spend and they need good hitters.

I am to the point of the year where in my league where the teams leading in WINS and K's have already reached their innings limit. I am in 4th place in WINS and 5th place in K's with about 200 innings to go. If all goes well I should move into first or second place in both categories by years end while still maintaining a good ERA and WHIP. Those 5-7 points will hopefully keep me atop the standings or if my offense falters it will help propel me into first place.

I just have to take it one day at a time now, that's the grueling part :-o

I finally clawed my ERA and WHIP back to respectable in one league but I'm running short on IP. Now I am only starting my top guys vs. bad team to get wins without using all my innings. It is a painfully slow way to gain points but will hopefully pay off at season's end.

Hoping to soon reach innings limits in all of my roto leagues so I don't have to look at 'em any longer. :-P

i have an opening in a fantasy football league that drafts tomorrow afternoon at one pm (pst). The two keepers are CJ Spiller and Chris Johnson. You can only keep them for one year. Unfortunately, a long time owner backed out at the last minute. if you are interested hit me up with a PM. Id post this on the football cafe side, but since the site was down for two weeks, nobody goes there anymore.
