Miguel Enguidanos - If you only have the start count for regular season, why would you drop them when you could use them without an issue in the playoffs? You want them then, don't you? Am I misunderstanding?
So the trade deadline is two days away. One of my teams has 29 starts left. What I haven't been thinking clearly about is the end of the regular season in the league is August 31 not the end of the regular baseball season because of playoffs.

Gallardo and Fister go today so that leaves 27 starts actually. I'm in 2nd place in a 12 team 5x5 roto.
