That is why the FBC is the place to be. B-)
I did tell them that if they hung around the Cafe, they'd know those type of stats.

ES- I really like your MIs. I think Aurillia is a great sleeper there, Greene's got upside, and I think Polanco is consistantly underrated. Marte is a nice upside guy to have, too. If Piniero ends up closing you could have a very good pitching staff on the "cheap".

Murgila- I pretty much agree with your assessment. You might compete, but you'll need a lot of things to go right, including a couple of younger guys getting PT and making good use of it.

Chad- Another solid middle infield. Problem is, with Kelly Johnson, you've got 3 2Bs. :-D Hopefully you'll be able to move one at some point.Your rotation is kinda thin at the back, so maybe you could target a mid-level starter when you move one of your 2Bs.

Pedantic- Very heavy on the young guys. But it could work out nicely. I like Conor Jackson, Encarnacion, and Kubel, and Lind could produce well if given PT. I'm not a huge fan of Verlander, but hopefully Willis and Bondo can carry you. You've got a high-potential offense, but you may need to move someone for some saves (or another pitcher in general) if your guys can't hold their jobs.

Overall, nicely done guys. Each of you has a team that could compete, and in a league as deep as this, drafting a team good enough is a challenge in and of itself. ;-D

Thanks. And you're, right, it's difficult to draft a solid team in a league like this. All of our teams have holes, but so does every team in the league. A league like this isn't won on draft day, though. There won't be a lot of good value on the wire, but the scrubs that distinguish themselves over the year will make a big difference for the people that pick them up and fit them into their teams. So let's stay active, people. ;-D (I know, "rah, rah". :*) )

Right on. As long as none of you guys shoot yourself in the foot on draft day (and doesn't look like you have). Then the real battle can begin.

I just gave up Ortiz/Glaus/Broxton for Pujols/F. Lopez/Donnelly.

I did this for a few reasons.

1. I needed help in average and I get it with Pujols. 50 points higher than Ortiz. I don't lose power numbers here.

2. I needed speed. Iguchi was my main SB guy with 11 SB's last year. I'm not punting SB's. Lopez gives me more SB's.

3. I didn't want to give up Broxton, but I have Rincon/Linebrink to help with my ratio's. I didn't want to not get Pujols over a middle reliever.

I like it. If you need average help, then losing Glaus should help there as well. ;-D
