Did I fall into a coma for two weeks? :-?

The Yanks are 11-15. That's 26 games. 162 games in the year minus the 26 games they have played equals 136 games left. That's more than an extra two weeks. :-?
Yes doctor, I am sick.

Not for pitchers. 120 games equals about 24 starts( If he were to start every 5 games) left and since he's going to miss some you can start looking at it that he has a very slim chance of reaching the 20 wins that most people thought was a lock. When you look at it that way you tend to feel a little bit better about picking Santana instead of RJ.


ok sure


Good answer.

I just make it a point to never, ever take a pitcher in the first round and rarely in the second. That way I can avoid the my-ace-sucks-or-is-on-the-DL problem. :-b

Truthfully I'm not sure if I'm more happy about that or the fact I was able to get Tejada on the swing back. :-D
no offense, but is your league full of idiots :-b :-°


None taken because I could care less if you thought they were idiots. Sometimes I feel the same. But you could make a case for the way they picked the way they did. Our league scoring makes closers extremely valuable(Same pts for W's/Saves). Thus our first round went as follows till I got Tejada in rd 2. Last year Gagne scored 741pts and was 3rd highest among pitchers. RJ was no.1 with 779pts. Santana 2nd highest w/ 755, Rivera was 4th best at 733, Schimdt was 5th at 700.

1.Pujols
2.Vlad
3.Arod
4.Gagne
5.Manny
6.RJ
7.Beltran
8.Santana :-°
9.Schmidt
10.Soriano

11.Rolen :-?
12.Rivera
13.Tejada :-D

Well, I'm not much of a fan taking a pitcher 1st round either but when Santana comes to you at #8 you gotta take him. I felt he was the best player available at the time. Not to mention Santana kept me from losing my 1st week by 2 points because of his last start on Sunday when he got 11 K's I believe and 7IP with the W.

I took Peavy over RJ. Most pitchers falter in New York. I don't think this is just some fluke.

Are the people who took Brian Roberts over Beltran supposed to be patting themselves on the back too?

It's FOUR WEEKS into the season. Everyone relax.


Lol, good post.

I know it's early, but in two weeks when RJ returns, he's going to have one helluva tough hill to climb to match Santana.

Are you sure Santana will stay healthy all year?

Santana hasn't been so ridiculous that it's unfathomable to take Randy above him.

Sure he's winning but alot of that is due to Minnesota's hitting. His ERA isn't incredibly spectacular (or at least it wasn't through his first 3 or so starts.)

I'm not sure what his numbers are right now exactly, but we're 1 month into the season. Give me a break.

I'll take my chances with a 25 year old vs a 41 year old to stay healthy. But no one can say with certainty either way.
