I don't see one on my page either Rob, but then I don't think I'd ever looked for it before so I can't say if it is gone, moved, or something else.  Sorry.

Hey guys, I was looking at my roster today and realized that I hadn't been paying close attention to my innings pitched for my pitching staff.  Somehow, I'm projected to be +74 innings for the season at my current pace.  I took a look at everyone else's projections for the season and it seems that I'm the only one that is that far over for the year.  Seeing as how this is my first year in the league, was this something that I completely mismanaged, or is it just that I had a lot of pitchers that went 7 to 8 innings in a lot of their starts this season (Sheets and Lackey come to mind right away)?

What sucks is that at this pace, I'm going to miss a lot of my pitcher's last couple of starts...

I'm amazed you're that far over, but I guess yeah, if you haven't had guys like Verlander that get pulled after 1.2 innings, then I guess you could get that far up in innings.  I'm up by about 18 or so innings but right now I'm ok with that since it was mostly my pitchers pitching in bunches and Sabathia's full game streak.  Through the season I tried to pick and choose the starts and watched the innings really closely too (not that my staff did anything but suck, Sabathia excepted).

But yes, bluntly you are indeed screwed with respect to innings, so use them wisely. :-\

Which is why I was trying to get starters from your before the trade deadline.  No big whoop on my end because I think I can still get 2nd, it is 1st that might be tougher :-\

If nothing else, my standings in the league have taught me that I hate baseball.  ::)

Sorry Scott, comlpetely missed the fact that I was projected to be that far over in innings...  Had I paid closer attention to that, I bet I would have taken you up on at least one of those trade offers.

However I have picked up some valueable lessons for next year!

Until I realized my complete **** up with the innings, I was setting my sights on 3rd considering I'm only 1.5 points behind at the moment.  Now I'll be lucky to keep 5th...

Funny, I was thinking he should be happy with 4th.  Once Prince Fielder gets going, look out.  Cuz I'm still waiting. ::)

I have like 50-80 innings on everyone and have been holding in W's and S's and slowly working up in K's.  My BA is going up steadily and I've been holding on pretty much everything else.  Getting my WHIP down and hopefully getting some more runs puts me in 2nd

Well I might be looking at second.  I'm still fully expecting my merry band of idiots to find a way to go into a collective slump for the last 3 weeks.   :-\

The Tools tab is back.  Either it went away on accident, or they got enough emails asking where it went to put it back.

Evan Longoria... in a little bit of a return-from-injury slump... so I sit him tonight in favor of Aubrey Huff who went yard last night.

So far tonight, Longoria has THREE homeruns.   :'(

And I hope he keeps going, not for your sake but for the White Sox's sake...  They are sucking ass against the Yankees tonight and could use some help from the Rays so they don't lose their lead...

So I've exceeded my maximum allowed innings...  Got might sights set on 7th place now...
