Last week I mentioned the fact that I stupidly forgot that defense is a part of baseball during my fantasy draft and decided to draft Mike Napoli's power potential. The problem of course was that his manager does consider defense important to the game and was giving Jeff Mathis the King's share of at bats. Well God, Kevin Jepsen, and Jeff Mathis' calcium deficient diet gave me a quick solution to this playing time conundrum. Mathis decided to block a wild Jepsen pitch with his wrist, fractured it and now will miss the next 6 to 8 weeks.
And this is where Fantasy Sports / just being a sports fan makes you a bad person.I am happy that someone broke their wrist. I am very pleased that Jeff Mathis will be unable to play baseball and earn* a living for the next two months. I'm not particularly pleased with the fact that he will have to rehab and that he might be in some pain, but I am pleased that Mike Napoli will be getting the bulk of the playing time while he's gone and I won't be the slightest bit upset if Mathis has some sort of complications in his rehab.
*He does get paid while on the DL, so he still is earning a living.
