OBP is a hard category to keeps eyes on. One guy that I LOVE in this category was Hideki Matsui, I would cry every time he had birds on the pound and he would WALK, just killed me last year, making me wish OBP was a category in the league I played in. I don't care for Burrell and I like your pick with the other Matsui (Kaz), he should be an OBP stud on that Houston team, I'd look to see if Michael Bourn is still available on waivers.

help with mine? viewtopic.php?t=322503

I think you did well in drafting Howard and Ortiz for OBP, as they draw a ton of walks. I like your infusion of speed into your lineup with Figgins, Young, Lugo (interesting bounce-back candidate), and Matsui. I don't know about Randy Johnson, but I believe you could find another useful option if need be. Sexson is a nice sleeper pick.

Sexson is a decent sleeper, and i like your first 4 picks very much. You need to get another bonafide basestealer or Starting Pitcher though.

please return the favor

solid team although you need some relievers big time! from personal experience i know that having one or two great closers can make a huge difference (2 to 3 total points in a 5x5 roto league)!!!!

Solid team in a standard 5x5 I didnt look into what a change to OBP would do, but good lookin team. You should probably scrounge the waiver wire for some closers as the season progresses but I dont think you are that bad off in that area as someone said earlier. I like your young starting pitching and you 21st round pick of Richie Sexson in a no risk/high reward pick. I, however, do not like Chris B. Young that early, I just dont see his avg. rising to a respectable one.
