The keys to success is a Yahoo service that lists the players that are most often on teams that lead their respective fantasy leagues. So, for example, 15.6% of the winning Yahoo fantasy teams have Joe Blanton on them. This is the third most-owned (by winners) player of all. The keys to success link is located in a Yahoo leagues tools section (at least in pay leagues).

That's my wild speculation. :-)


Agreed. That seems like the only reasonable explanation.


8-o That's a reasonable explanation :-?

I'm struggling to understand how any Blanton owner could be called savvy.

Maybe owners who have Blanton are actually A's fans who also took Chavez and Swisher. That's all I can think of. !+)

Also Dan Johnson and Esteban Loaiza ;-7


It's simply yet another piece of Yahoo idiocracy.

Only fourth in the one that counts but if you hadn't started Blanton this season in the Challenge you would be 1st ;-)

It's time to get rid of Hank as well mate }:-)


That's true. I've been getting lucky in how I always seem to start Blanton but have forgot about Arroyo and Maroth a couple of times each. Lee out doesn't help either, but hey, what can I do. !+) ;-)

And in this case there is very little of the former.
