I sure am glad that I drew the bye this week.

It'll give me a chance to rest my players from that epic battle last week.

My team is definitely as good as a bye. Thanks to my stupidity, I don't have a starting second baseman this week. Only getting better from there.

I'm putting the over/under at 300 points that goat will beat me by this week. Anyone?

Yeah auto draft killed you worse than anyone coupled with injuries and your toast. I strongly suggest you start to trade away pieces and build for next year. At least you'll have the first pick.

Well this was an interesting week, teams are really starting to bunch together in the middle. There are many teams now 6-6 or 7-5 so the playoff race should be interesting. Its great to see all the new trades and constant activity, this is an amazing league.

He's got some keepers in Harper, Zimmerman and Ellsbury. Maybe Chapman. Might be a good time to sell high on Konerko. Could maybe get a good pick in return for Howard too. A combination of players could maybe land another keeper worthy player.

Yeah he's got a strong core with those three and could flip a few other for another high draft pick and/or young keeper. Something I have yet to decide is just how important those earlier draft picks will be for next years draft. There will be a ton of talent for those first few rounds and having multiple early picks might be a huge benefit.

I have been so gutted by injuries this season that I'm giving serious thought to using the rest of the year to try to land a fantastic keeper to go with my young pitching as well as picking up some extra early picks.

But on the other hand, if my pitching ever gets healthy / is promoted to the majors, I could be primed to make a huge second half run.
