This is like the 6th thread about these leagues we have going, wow


I'm planning the 7th thread to be posted around all-star break when I'm up by 20 points. Image


I am banking on ya Image

anything less than a 1st place finish, and I will be disappointed.

Were you aiming for Freel and Roberts to be your OF 2 and 3, bleach? :-o

I'd have to say, I really like Scottsbluff's team...just needs another closer...

he also has griffey, duncan and granderson. You figure those five will add up to two pretty darn good players. that's kind of what i did in my draft. i saw how shallow outfield was and piled up depth with injury prone or platoon types. I think this is a great strategy for this year. Especially, because outfield is where you are going to see most of the top callups come from.

Actually, Freel is my 3B. That's my one true disappointment this draft. I was going to add Huff in round 15 but Burnett was just too good to pass up. Huff then didn't make it to 16. :,-(

My outfield is Abreu and a 4 player platoon of Roberts, Griffey, Duncan, and Granderson. They are all lefties and I will only use them against righty pitchers. The end result should look pretty good.

I have plenty of 3B...I wouldnt be against selling one of them, offer up a trade if you want.

not that this would lose you a league or anything, but why would someone take holliday and ortiz, when vlad and hafner were still there? I knwo OF is a touch more shallow this year, but one would think you would either want the two biggest bats you can get, or go johan, huge bat, or huge bat, steals. Not holliday and ortiz. I like holliday and all, but still.

I thought the Ortiz pick was good, but I didnt agree with Holliday that early.
