Great Moments in Fantasy Baseball History

Monday, June 27, 6:00 PM: My team, The Masking Agents, successfully completes a trade for Pirates pitcher Oliver Perez.

Monday, June 27, 9:00 PM: The Pirates place Perez on the 15-day disabled list after he breaks his toe, from having kicked a laundry basket in the clubhouse. I'd had no idea Kevin Brown was his mentor.

Not only that, but I'd gotten this far in the season without a single pitching injury. "Hey," said the league rival who traded him to me, "at least he doesn't need Tommy John surgery." No, more like Toe Nash surgery.
