Are you going to remain vague or give us some examples to explore?


and i have no idea what u just said


I'm only a month and a half behind here but...I think what you're trying to say (or insult, if you will) is that there were reaches made to make some look more "expert" by taking players where they, in your opinion, had no business being drafted?

Uh... OK, I guess I better use small words and sentences then. First of all, I'm not offended by this comment and I don't think anyone else should be either- I think it was a pretty solid draft. I'd still take that team into battle today. This draft was conducted in early January- before any of us had really had an opportunity to do our rankings or get prepared for the season, and before there was a lot of baseball information available to scrutinize. A lot of things have changed in the past 2.5 months- for instance, I drafted Tony Pena in the 15th round of that draft. Today, I'd probably draft Brandon Lyon there instead and look for Pena in the last rounds. Also, a lot of new information about players has come out since January, and a lot of hype has started to take hold. For instance, I snatched Soto as my catcher in the last round of this draft. Today he'd probably be one of the first 6-7 catchers off the board.

So in summary- don't come in here and call people dumb when you yourself can't read and write simple sentences. Or better yet, please offer us a link to a recent cafe draft you've taken part in.

Hey adbrage, I kind of popped off on you earlier and I'm sorry about that. Your remarks rubbed me the wrong way and I fired off a response before stopping to think about whether or not I should. Maybe we both could stand to think a little more before we post. Sorry bro. ;-D
