Injury plagued

Postby PresHabib » Wed Jun 16, 2004 6:42 pm

Can we dub this the year of the injured star yet? There have been lots of stars goin down.

My team in particular is being victimized by this. My DL stint includes or has included at times this season:

Nomar Garciaparra
Kerry Wood
Garrt Anderson
Vernon Wells
Kevin Brown
and an honorable mention to Curt Schilling who may find himself on the DL sooner than later.

Thats my 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 9th picks (nomar, wood, anderson, brown), the guy I traded my 7th and 15th picks for (Oswalt/K. Matsui for Vernon Wells), and my first pick (Schilling) all hurt and have missed or are likely to miss significant time.

Is anybody getting hurt more than me?

Consider this an open invitation to Sexson owners.

Miraculously, i have kept myself in first place, but the ball is gonna drop soon and so too will my position in the standings...

So I'm starting this "bitch about injuries thread".

Worse off than me? Give us your two cents! ;-D

This goes in the venting forum. I think everyone is injured a lot. Lot of annoying posts about it.

Oh, I didn't know there was a specific forum for venting.

Didn't mean to drop annoyance bombs.

That's why you don't take pitchers early in the draft...too many unknowns.

Kerry Wood
Billy Wagner
Lary Walker
Josh Beckett
Vincente Padilla

Carl Everett

Not to mention minor injuries to Pujols and V. Martinez (not drafted)

chavez
sosa
wells
halladay
beckett
peavy
pujols (sort of)
thome (sort of)

7 team league so all 7 teams are sort of stacked, but none banged up like mine.
