The problem I had in PCL was two-fold:

1) I traded for players too early in the season that other teams wanted to trade. The problem wasn't the early, but the salary (since PCL is a salary cap team).

By the time I could pick up good, cheaper players, I didn't have good keepers to trade.

So this was an issue of selectivity.

2) When things got a little shaky, I panicked and dumped when I shouldn't have. It's all good. New rules in place for next season :-)

===
Now, Rotoman, I do have a fast start rule -- don't buy hurt players.

Corey Hart is a great example.

He was kept in my home league at 17:A and auctioned for 18 in PCL where he can be kept next season at 18, but he got you nothing this year and he's a free agent in the offseason meaning he may not even return to the NL next year.

Ask Seadogs ... and see if it did him any good in PCL this year :-)

After the Tout Wars NL auction I went on the Sirius radiocast with Ray Flowers and was pummeled on my buying Zimmerman ($27) and Zack Cozart ($14). I have to admit that until the last two weeks, Ray had me.

But not so much now, and the key thing here is timing. If Zimmerman hit nine homers in 13 games to start the season, everything changes for my team. Zimmerman's value stays the same, but my strategic leverage increases.

I don't know how to prove this, but I think getting off to a fast start helps in fantasy baseball.

So, how do you get off to a fast start?

After hitting his ninth homer in 13 games, he's got almost the same slash stats as he had last year (currently .280/.351/.477 in 511 AB). Also close to identical K/W (2.1) and BABIP (.322). Be interesting to see where these numbers are at the end.

The shoulder is baked and it's painful to watch him throw. As it currently sits the Nats need his bat in the lineup and with that long-term contract have no option but to wheel him out at 3B until LaRoche's two-year deal is completed. Maybe a trade of LaRoche, move Zimm to 1B, and get Rendon back to his natural position an option?

2nd half last year Zimmerman put up a .319/.381/.564 line, with 17 HR and 55 RBI. Which is why he got a big bump going into 2013. But the fact that he seemed to need consistent cortisone shots in the shoulder to achieve that production scared the hell out of me.

Zimmerman has to be the most overrated player in real/fantasy baseball. Even on defense, he looks like a shell of himself. 2009 looks like an aberration; his absolute peak. With how brittle he's been, his career looks like Eric Chavez's. Speaking of the latter, Chavy's productions are nearly identical to Zimmerman's despite 60 less at bats.

The Zimmermen accounted for six big flies between them.
