I'm just grabbing all the big name "can't-miss" mid-season call-ups and hoping someone catches fire.

Does anyone want AJ Burnett? I'm done with him. He gets shelled one outing, so I sit him and he throws a gem. OK, I start him next time and he gets shelled again. Time for a divorce,

I hates hobbitses. Oops, I meant dead teams. Royals, I'm looking at you, with a last login of March 7th and 3 players on the DL in your starting lineup.

75th of Lou Gehrig's speech spoken by all the starting 1Bs. Don't talk to me about Jeter, if anyone knows tradition it's him.

All the starting 1Bs... and Justin Smaok. (As for Jeter, he is Gehrig's successor in many ways, and not just as team captain. Gehrig was the first to have his number retired; Jeter's #2 will be the last of the single-digits. And he's almost certain to join Gehrig in the HoF eventually.)

In TR baseball news, I woke up this morning to discover I suddenly own most of Oakland's starting rotation.

I feel the same about mine but it's easy to forget there are only 8 teams, and so everyone's rosters are stacked.

OK, I get it that injuries are a part of the game. But this is just silly

OMFG are you kidding me! I log in the morning, Morneau and Tulowitski are DL, so I dig around and find some replacements. Log in just now and see that since this morning, Zimmerman is on the DL!!! WTF!

Everyone is hurt. It's kind of depressing.

Not fantasy baseball-related, but the funniest sim-style runs I've ever read about. In the style of Breaking Madden it's the Clone League:
