Fantasy Impact: Ike Davis Has Valley Fever, Justin Turner Wins Again?

Ike Davis is cursed! Last year it was his lingering ankle injury and this year it’s Valley Fever. “A fever? You’re writing about a guy with a cold?” It’s actually a lot more serious than that. I’m not a doctor — I’m a professor, remember? — but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, and at the very worst that makes me qualified to read up on what Valley...
