Well this was initially an 12 keeper league and it moved to a dynasty. As my first round pick last year I got Reyes then I believe Holliday in the third. I traded for Prince early last year because I just had a feeling about him, and I traded a package with Wright, who was my second rounder last year I believe to get MCab and Chris Young.

Is there a point in playing the whole season? Couldn't you just play the championship week during week one with team 2?

Yeah that's pretty sick. I might give team 2 the edge over you because of pitching. Team 3 could win any given week with those arms too, but you've got the best bats.

Lucky drafts and lucky trades can give you sick lineups. Last year I managed to swing Pujols, Utley, Hanley, and Howard in a 12-teamer (with Webb, Smoltz, and Harang as my arms), so it can be done. I didn't do anything super special to get that team, either. Sometimes you just get lucky.
Dominate is a verb. Dominant is an adjective.

I think they are all about the same actually. It depends who gets hit with injuries and who doesn't.

Team 1 doesn't have great pitching, which could hurt when they match up against Team 2 or 3. Their offense looks great though.

Team 2 has a ton of injury risks in the pitching department, but looks solid throughout their entire roster.

Team 3 has the best pitching, but the weakest offense. Anyone with Adam Dunn in a H2H format has the potential to go off or get torched.

I would probably take Team 2 as the best team though, assuming their pitchers stay healthy.

Team 3 has amazing pitching but really doesn't have the bats to compete in the long run.

You have just a sick offense but I think team 2 has a little better pitching, with an unreal top 3. Should be some really good battles in that league but I would probably have to say team 2 is the best by the very slightest of margins.

If you have a minute, please help me out.

Best of luck. B-)
