Uncle!

Carlos Santana
Jacoby Ellsbury
Allen Craig
Pablo Sandoval
Houston Street
Roy Halladay

What do these players all have in common? They are all on my fantasy team, and they are all on (or will soon be on) the disabled list.

WTF?!? I thankfully have 3 DL slots, but even using those up I now have virtually no bench spots. I don't even have room to add temp replacements for these guys. This list doesn't even include Soria and Bailey, both of whom I've had to drop already.

I added a second DL slot to my two leagues and I have seen more players on the DL this year. I have Matt Kemp on one team, and just when I thought I was going to get him back, he re-injures his hamstring and shows his displeasure by breaking a bat over his knee. I guess when you go from being a possible MVP to out for 4-6 weeks it gets to you.

Lol Popeye...we have virtually the same team, except I dont have Halladay or sandoval.

I had all the other players you mentioned plus Desmond Jennings, Austin Jackson, and Sergio santos as well.

So at one time, I had more dl'd players than position players.
