Will Carroll: Nicasio's neck injury shows need for more protection

I know that fantasy sports are a bit of an escape for most of us, even more than sports can be. Injecting reality into that dulls the rush we get from drafting the best sleeper, from making the best trade, or watching your hot prospect explode on the scene. Sometimes I have to be that buzzkill. This weekend was one of the scariest, as we came all too close to having a death on the field. I'll tell you more about Juan Nicasio below, but when we deal with an injury referred to in medical texts as "often fatal," it's time to take a look at advancing the safety of the game.
