Gagne goes on the DL: Not an April Fools Joke

Thanks. Just checked in before my live draft tonight on Yahoo. Gagne went in the 2nd round, haha! Then I quietly took Yency in the 18th round.

Depends on what type of league. In a standard Yahoo roto, McPherson isn't worth having in the first place. So yeah if that's the case I'd go with Yhency.

This will be very interesting on a couple of counts. First of all, it may end up being much ado about very little. It sounds like more of a two week precaution for Gagne than anything else, though one never knows.

Brazoban figures to be the lead closer in the interim, but I know that Tracy is a skipper who places much more trust in veterans, so does the more experienced Carrara or someone else get a look? Personally, I have a number #3 waiver in the one 15 team league where Braz is available. But Otsuka was waived as well yesterday, and I have decided to grab him. First off, I'm quite sure I'll get him, and secondly, I just don't know what value Braz will end up with.

One further note on Brazoban that bears watching. He pitched winter ball against the Dodger wishes. Don't be surprised if he wears down late in the year. Just something to put on the back burner.


BTW, I'm commissioner of a free Yahoo 5x5 roto league that drafts tomorrow at 2PM Pacific. Mostly guys with some connection to sports, either media or promotion. Should be a good league, but we still have a few openings as some of the guys who wanted to play had to beg off for a variety of reasons. Anyone here who wants to play send me a PM and I'll send you the ID and password!

severity can vary widely. i sprained my elbow playing basketball jumping up, getting knocked off course, putting my hand out and coming down on it full body weight and my arm twisted behind my back. Doc said he never seen something messed up so bad without anything blowing out. took two or so weeks in a sling and then lots of gradual and painful stretching over the next 2 weeks to get full range of motion back.

i doubt gagne has it near this bad, so i woudn't be too worried, nothing 2-3 weeks can solve.

two of them are weekly leagues, so we have transactions on Sunday and you can rest assured that the other owners will sctahc him up. In the other two, I own Brazoban on one, and he is gone on another. We counts holds in those leagues.
