How in the world did you get Soriano in the 3rd round and Halladay in the 9th?? Well however you did it, good job
I like your pitching, maybe you could trade lidge for 2b? and hope Ryan gets hurt/sucks so that Accardo regains the closer job. You think you could get Kendrick or Weeks for Lidge?
Man I was thinking the same thing. I do a annual $$ league and each year has it's surprises. Last year it was A-rod falling to me with the 3rd pick. I also got Holliday in the 3rd and Vlad in the 2nd. For that reason I won that year.
This year it was people taking guys like B Phillips (second to last pick in 2nd), Upton (1st pick in the 3rd), and guys like Oswalt and Halladay falling to 8th and 9th respectively. Guys like Kazmir, Bedard, and King Felix were taken in the 6th, and 7th. I was simply stunned. I took chances on some veterans hoping they will bounce back this year. I got criticized for taking Abreu and Lee, but I think these guys have good chances to bounce back. I saw what Posada did in the contract year, imagine what Abreu can do! I kind of have a man-crush on Harden and Bay, so it was kind of an unnecessary risk taking them.
Soriano fell to me probably because of his up and down season last year. These were the consecutive guys taken before he got to me....Peavy, Phillips,Texiera(i actually wanted him, contract year), Upton, V-Mart, Maggs, and then Soriano (I actually took the full-time to choose him because Beltran was still there. Ultimately took Soriano because Beltran has off-season arthroscopic surgery on both knees and doesn't play well injured. I had him last year).
