Yeah, I got really excited when I saw that. I traded Braun, Teixeria, and Lester for Trout, Votto, and Cliff Lee in late June. It was looking like a steal considering Trout has been outproducig Braun in nearly ever way( I’ll be honest I was looking at it more of a Braun for Votto, Teixeria for Lee, and Lester for Trout….). But Votto and Sandoval went down a month later. So my offense has basically been the Mike Trout show with guest appearances of Matt Holliday and Josh Willingham). It is going to be beautiful to get them back for the playoff push.

Stock piling injured players (even unintentionally) for a playoff run…brilliant. One of my friends, Brian Y., did it a few years ago in the first year of our dynasty league. He killed it the last 3 weeks of the season and won the league.
