Ask a stupid question...
They say you shouldn't ask a question you are not prepared to hear the answer to.
So, there it is. Ryan Howard is on the DL, retroactive to May 10. Since getting thrown out at the plate against the Giants, his left quad has been hurting, though he's pinch hit a few times. Going on the DL is never a good thing, but if it's just being banged up enough to need some rest, it's not the worst. Of course, that means for my fantasy team, both of my true sluggers, Howard and Jim Thome, are both doing nothing for my team.
Coincidentally enough, my team is last in most power offensive categories. Funny how that would happen. Praise all that is Carlos Lee for being pretty much the only guy on my team consistently hitting. If Howard and Thome come back healthy, and Bob Abreu, Ryan Zimmerman, Dan Uggla and Felipe Lopez can do anything close to their potential, my offense is not just good, it should be very good. But it's hard to say that from the cellar.
The problem is...I feel like I've been down this road before - sitting in dire straits and thinking things will take care of themselves. I could actively try and change my team, but I still LIKE my team. That should be a good thing, right?
