That's only because they don't put hurt players on the DL, they just play short handed..
Kidding.. they have improved a lot.
Also, I think the Lindner administration pushed a lot of guys to play before they were ready (Especially Jr). This ended up making some injuries worse.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
