Headed toward the halfway point in the fantasy baseball season. Let's recap last week:
1. Tried and failed to move Carlos Beltran, and of course he's injured again now. Go figure
2. The 2B, SS, 3B, OF, 1B, DH platoon of Vlad, Zobrist, Tulo, Scutaro, Berkman, Howard, Werth, Hart, Upton, Beltran, and Branyan is still in effect. It drives me crazy.
3. Added some random players last week in hopes to catch pitching lightening in a bottle. Something called Mazzano, Scott Richmond who promptly lost his two-start status this week, and a catcher called Hannigan for the Reds.
I don't really have much to add. Last week the pitching melted down that's to bad performances by Verlander and Cueto and anyone else in our lineup I'm sure. Downs was hurt all week as well, so that didn't help. We did manage to catch up to the bottom of the pack in RBIs and AVG, but we're still basically in last in those categories and need another huge offensive week to crawl back into it. I'll give it another couple of weeks before trading off Beltran (if he's not out for the year) and Coco Cordero.
