Milton Bradley has a sore side. Bobby Crosby has a tweaked back.
Doesn't matter. No one is going to build a team around one of these guys. In the case of Crosby, he would be a bit of a flyer at a quarter.
But Victor Martinez has done something to a muscle! That matters. You could miss at a quarter, but if you pay big bucks for someone who goes down, there goes the season. The injury we most fear, of course, is the one that takes place during the actual draft. You select your lovely team, go home for one last internet news hit before going to bed and discover that you were drafting the dead and didn't even know. That first night after the draft your dreams are nightmares.
We are a fantasy baseball league whose draft is scheduled for April 14. Ten men enter (or nine or eight), and one man leaves.
