People picked these guys to have for the playoffs, but they were out for much longer than predicted and didnt contribute much. Since Yahoo got rid of the IL option, these guys are basically wasting precious roster space for the majority of the season. Its not cost efficient in my opinion.
i agree fully. the removal of the IL position has really hurt. i guess its a gamble for keeping gasol. it might pay off or it might not...it all depends on the manager if he is a risk taker or not. gasol is a trooper, iam sure he will return to decent form, certainly better than what chandler will offer, but i guess when you calculate the point chandler has accumulated it will offset gasols due to the stats he lost during injury.
