It’s 2:30 in the morning.Your shirt is drenched in sweat. You haven’t shaved in days – in fact http://www.packerscheapshoponline.com/cheap-authentic-darnell-savage-jr.-jersey , you don’t even know what day it is. You have 49 unread text messages and 21 missed calls, but you’re too focused to care. Why? Because it’s Draft Day tomorrow.If this reminds you of yourself, you probably fall into one of two categories: one, you’re a hardcore fantasy football player who is squeezing every last minute out of the last few days before your big draft – or you completely forgot to prepare and are cramming at the last minute.The draft clock countdown finally hits zero. No matter what pick you had in your draft, you were guaranteed an elite player in the first round. You pick up some solid plug-and-play guys in the next few rounds. You snag someone who dropped in Round 5 and celebrate with a fist pump. You’re able to get an elite defense by Round 10 and your two QB’s are top-10 options, but you didn’t have to reach for them. You get two sleepers that you highlighted and circled on your draft cheat sheet in the later rounds, and you get a premier kicker with your last pick.You’re singing to the heavens – your roster is stacked…this might be the year.Week 1 rolls around, and you lose because the other guy’s top wide-out exploded. He got lucky. Week 2 will be better – except it isn’t. The injury bug hits early, often, and hard. You’re starting to worry. You go through the free-agent list over and over http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-justice-hill-jersey , trying to find the next hidden gem. You get a notification on your phone saying a top RB is out for a few months, so you pick-up his backup… turns out the third stringer got more carries, and poof, your Week 3 hopes are dashed and you’re looking at an 0-3 article. Maybe you were looking forward to playing a team with a hobbled Jamaal Charles in week 4, and then he exploded so you’re 0-4 and depressed.Someone out there reading this article knows these feelings too well. Every league has one or two victims each year; it’s the nature of the beast and the beauty of the sport.Without further ado, here are the top 20 reasons your fantasy team has gotten off to an absolutely atrocious start to the 2014 season.*All point totals taken from Yahoo! Fantasy Football Baltimore Orioles reliever Richard Bleier is likely lost for the year with a shoulder injury, yet another setback for the team with the worst record in the major leagues.
Bleier (3-0, 1.93 ERA) was the most effective pitcher in a bullpen that only recently got back injured Zach Britton and Darren O’Day.
Bleier walked off the mound in pain Wednesday after throwing a seventh-inning pitch against Boston. An MRI determined the injury to be a left shoulder latissimus strain, which probably will require surgery to repair.
”I don’t expect him to play again this year,” manager Buck Showalter said Friday. ”The worst case is that it’s a Grade 3 (strain) and he has surgery and returns sometime next season.”
Bleier Ben Powers Jersey , whose 31 appearances are most on the staff, was placed on the 10-day disabled list.
”It’s a loss,” Showalter said. ”It’s very valuable to have a left-handed pitcher who can pitch to both sides. He keeps you from having to (warm up) behind him because you know you can leave him in there for an extended period of time.”
The Orioles made a flurry of moves Friday, recalling left-handed reliever Tanner Scott from Triple-A Norfolk, selecting the contract of infielder Corban Joseph from Double-A Bowie, optioning right-hander Yefry Ramirez to Norfolk and designating lefty D.J. Snelten for assignment.
Joseph was poised to make his big league debut at first base Friday night against Miami in place of Chris Davis, who has essentially been benched in the wake of a season-long slump.
Davis is batting .150 with four home runs, 15 RBIs and 86 strikeouts in 52 games. Making matters worse is that the slugger in the third year of a seven-year, $161 million contract.
Davis hasn’t played since Monday, and there’s no telling when he will be back in the lineup.
”Chris is continuing with some things that he’s working on http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-iman-marshall-jersey ,” Showalter said. ”When they come to me and say they think he’s ready to get back in the lineup, we’ll put him back in there. But it’s nothing imminent.”
Asked to disclose whom Davis is working with, Showalter said, ”I’m not going to get into all that. When they think that he’s ready to play, he’ll play. I hope it’s tomorrow. I hope it’s the day after tomorrow. It’s not today, and there’s no closed end on it. I’m hoping it’s sooner rather than later.”
