2014 Injuries: Are the MLB Players Going on Strike?

Postby Fantasy Addict » Thu May 01, 2014 9:17 pm

Answer: Yes.

Mark it down. We had the golden era, the boring era, the pitching era, the Roid era, and now... The injury era.

I have been following fantasy baseball religiously since 2006. I have NEVER seen so many injuries. In the sabermatrics era of "fantasy" baseball, please tell mne that someone has been keeping track of this <must-be> staggering injury count of 2014, and what that compares to previous years.


With Billy Hamilton, I am looking at 13 players since the draft in late March that have gone on the DL. Anyone else had enough???

I think its more that we can better diagnosis things, and teams tend to be more cautious with their players

We can better diagnose symptoms, but we are getting worse in diagnosing what one can live with. The treatment can be worse for you than the ailment originally was.

I blame the new health care system. ; )

Speaking for TJ surgery I almost think teams are starting to think that most all pitchers will need this at some time, So at any time it may look like they need it they will go for it to get them back and rehabilited.
