My perspective of baseball is changing with my participation in this league. Most surprising to me is the number of players that go on the DL. It is surprising when you look at the entire league, that so many guys miss because of injury. Of course most are 15 days but still you see the impact on your lineup. The casual fan (me) never knew "so many missed so much for so long."

It surprises me the amount of time I spend trying to be the entire front office--GM, player dev.,scout,and manager all at once. I'm sure that a money league requires even closer study to player trends and match ups. This is about all I can do now. Maybe after several years my knowledge base will make this less difficult. But I can say that I look forward to seeing the league standings each day and trying to determine what changes too make. Having beginners luck also adds to my enjoyment.

You have a good roster. I am saying something that you already know, but the potential production from Martinez, Texiera, Zimmerman, Hamilton, Pence, Mauer, Hosmer, Weaver, Lester, K-Rod, and Street is very high.

Some shy away from a very promising hitter like Hamilton because of his injury history. And others shy away from spending much on the C spot because of the very significant likelihood that the guy will miss time.
