I've Been Youk'd

Postby harrisonobeid » Mon May 02, 2011 12:12 am

As was foreseen when I drafted him, Kevin Youkilis got hurt on Thursday, what should've been a minor injury that would go away with a day or two rest, but no, K. Youkilis, the masshole of massholes, just had to go ahead and play through the pain to prove that he's the man his father told him that would never be.

Now the glorious feeling of my team being 3 and 1 to start the season has been tampered, and I'm left with fear for the future. Obviously Youkilis will be my man at first (even if he does bang fugly chicks at a questionable rate,) but if he can't go for the forseeable future who do I pick and start in his place? Matt LaPorta, Mitch Moreland, Todd Helton, Garrett Jones, or Kila the Hawaiian Hammer? A wealth of options on the waiver wire I know, and guess what? Mark Trumbo is there, too. I think it's a complete toss up to be honest. Kila intrigues me as he has been hitting much better of late, and I know his potential is very high even though he flies low under the radar. All that said, I'm leaning towards LaPorta.

For those of you that wonder, David Freese is the man I will be dropping for one of these fine fellows. Would be a heart breaker if he weren't repeating his 2010 season.

Oh right, I almost forgot. We killed Osama bin Laden... America! Fuck yeah! Now let's get back to my fantasy team.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
