If you can snag both you'd be lucky. That's what I tried to do. Didn't work though. But I obviously that depends on league size.

I have yet to successfully complete a full season of Fantasy Baseball. Maybe this is the year.

I've never done fantasy baseball except for in the mid-90s with two of my brothers and three of their friends. But we never had the subs or anything like they have nowadays and we chose quite a few stats to use and had them weighted for importance. It'd be fun to do again someday.

Fox broadcaster, Tim McCarver, has announced that he will retire after the 2013 season. I liked him earlier in his career, but as the years have gone by, he's gotten worse. I'm glad he's finally hanging up his headset.

Awful news for the Mets: Johan Santana has re-torn his shoulder and more than likely will be out for the season.

Probably the best news for the Mets, actually... Terrible for Johan, who was a great guy and all, but this means the Mets will have to bring up the kids quicker. Johan pitching and doing well may have kept Wheeler down another month or so.

Yeah, it's not like they're not used to him being out, but you wanna get your money's worth from the player. This will be the 2nd entire season that he'll miss in 5 years. That blows at 20 millionsomething a pop.

Curt Schilling said something to the degree that it's likely that Santana's career is over. With the injury in question, I'd say that's a likely scenario.

With all the money the mets have blown over the past decade, paying Johan to half heartedly rehab for a season before ultimately retiring is not a big deal.

Shit... They're still paying Bobby Bonilla.

Miami is gonna start Fernandez on Sunday due to two pitchers being placed on the DL (Alvarez and Eovaldi).
