How many 1st rounders on your team?

Postby Fantasy Guru » Tue Mar 22, 2005 2:39 am

As of right now, I have Pujols, Abreu, Randy Johnson, Beltre, and Carl Crawford.

The season hasn't even started yet, do you think I have a jump on the other players in my league?

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Playing fantasy sports with stupid people can make you look like a genius, but it doesn't actually make you one.

I can easily seperate my "fantasy life" from my real life. And guess what- this is a part of that fantasy life!

So, at least when I come on here, I am a genius.

And the people in my league are not stupid. Some are smart enough to avoid trading with me. I've made my share of good deals and bad deals.

I saw you earlier post on how you acquired this team. And that told me that at least 4 people in your league are stupid enough to trade away their top pick before the season even begins. That's 4 out of the other 11 in your league for a .363 batting average of stupidity. Looks like the members of your league are All Star Quality in stupidity. If you want a challenge join an auction league with someone who knows something about baseball. Leave the elementary kids alone.

Well, it is true that trading away first round picks is stupid, but it's not like I'm trading Pokey Reese for Carlos Beltran. I work my way up. Doing lesser trades to "build up resources" and then making a major deal.

Nice to see you agree with me on how stupid some people in your league are. I used to play in a league like that. And I got bored with it quickly. It's sad watching the one or two people take advantage of idiots.

With those players why are you even asking? Sounds like bragging to me. If I were in that league I'd quit because it takes the challenge out of the game. There is a reason most leagues have a "cannot drop" list, so that people cannot acquire what you seemed to have. It's called competitive balance. Trading a #1 is the same as dropping him in my book - especially if you get far less in return.

My current deal is Thome and Pedro Feliz for Adrian Beltre. How unbalanced is that? I think it's pretty even
