We here at Land of 10,000 Losses are constantly debating about sports, particularly Minnesota-centric. This can be arguing with each other, or just generally having a conversation. 10KL Chronicles are excerpts pulled from our chats that we think you may have an interest in reading if you’re bored, have an interest in the particular subject, or you’re just a creepy stalker of Scherber and you want to read his every written word.
The first edition is a chat that took place last night. You are more than welcome to add your comments on this WordPress post or on the Facebook/Twitter links.

I know I need to get rid of Montero, I’ve been trying to move him for a 1B but most are comfortable seeing what they have at C for the first few weeks before they make a move. Ackley plays the IF spot for me, we’ve got one of those.

David Pearson I made a huge trade last year that helped me a lot this year but also sealed my fate at the time for that season. This is post-Posey injury. Interestingly enough I ended up getting Hanson back a few weeks later for pennies on the dollar after his shoulder flared up.
David Pearson also, there is no penalty for keeping players. You just get 12 per season. My only original players left from the first draft are Felix and Pedroia. And it’s a 12 team league, sorry. Thought it was 14 for some reason.
