Ledbetter is awfully unlucky and lucky. Ellsbury, Kinsler, Avila, Verlander, Volgelsong, and Santos are having surprising seasons. But, Papelbon, Pujols, Melky Cabrera, Werth, and Upton are having down years (even Pujols, he usually has more then 30 HR by this time). You probably have a more consistent roster.

I have a more consistent BATTING roster, but my pitching staff again is just abysmal. Like I said, I may have some life, but my team really isn't that great overall.

Gosh I really hope Peyton Manning recovers before the season starts. I'm not worried yet per se, but I'm definitely starting to get anxious thoughts...

Colts wouldn't have signed a 5th quaterback if they thought he wasn''t going to miss some time. Ecspecially if its a former starter like Kerry Collins.

Well, I'm not terribly disappointed with the Collins signing. Although he isn't a great QB by any means, he brings some veteran experience to the table. Personally, I'd rather have him than Painter right now.

Still...Looks like I'm benching Wayne AND Manning for Week 1 of the season. Now I just need to decide whether or not I want to play Braylon Edwards or Ochocinco.

I wouldn't with the catch machine Welker. Edwards has a worse quaterback but is the only receiver there, but Tom Brady somehow manages to get EVERYONE the ball...

The only problem with Edwards is that he "may" be suspended for Week 1 do to his DUI arrest. Really my current lineup of usable WR/RB are:

Wayne (No longer viable if Manning is out)
Edwards (Possible suspension)
Ochocinco (Brady has a lot of targets)
James Starks (2nd tier RB)
Plaxico Burress (I'm playing a wait and see approach for him)

I'm just glad that I was able to get a backup QB on the same "level" as Manning. Philip Rivers should do well in his absense.

Shocked I would almost say start Rivers over Manning this season. Not quite ready to say it though.

No matter what happens, I just cannot go against Peyton Manning right now. He is one of the greatest QBs of all time, and that alone makes him a must start. With that being said, I have Rivers for a reason and I will use him if the situation arises.

Three days left, and surprisingly enough Im still alive in the playoff hunt.

Im currently up 181-124.
The guy I need to lose is up 156-119. The real kicker will be Sunday, because the guy that needs to win has 3 pitchers.

The odds are still awful, but at least I have odds...
**Upon further review, I just realized I beat the current 4th seed guy 2-0 in the regular season, so if he does lose his game and I win mine...I will make it in because of the tie-breaker. Very Happy= :D

Hey not bad, way better than I could do. I've decided to keep my sports fantasy team's roster filled with Dallas Cowboy and LA Laker cheerleaders. In other words I suck at it.

I'm leaning in that direction Mattmo. But....hockey is the only sport my wife from Buffalo loves to watch . If I take my boy, it will cost me a expensive dinner with my better half at the very least. The cool thing is I'm golden no matter what since its my B-day.

Son,
what kind of a father would you be leaving your 10 year old son at home Mad [/sarcasm]

but the real reason i believe you should take your son is because he'll show his appreciation much more

besides, when you get back from the game, you're wiffy should be keeping the bed warm for obvious reasons...


so you can sleep easy of course !!

Im laughing at the wife keeping the bed warm thing Mr. Destruction. My Wife uses 2 quilts in the summer sometimes. Ever sleep next to a block of ice? You can get frostbite if my sweetie's bare feet graze your ankle on accident. If my son behaves himself for the next two weeks or so he is going to a hockey game. Should be no problem 'cause he is a great kid.

Psh. Colts > Chargers.

With that being said, I do have Philip Rivers on my team as well, so I guess picking up a star backup was a good idea on my part.

Back injuries can easily take a player out for a season. Those bulging discs can be weird tho so you might get lucky Ratchett. Manning is a great player like him or not.
