Off the top of my head, I'd say...

1. Jimmy Rollins
2. Alex Rios
3. Chase Utley
4. Vlad Guerrero
5. Jim Thome
6. Paul Konerko
7. Adam Dunn
8. Kevin Youkalis
9. Brian McCann

I'd like to put Youk at #2, but can't really see moving any of the other guys around much. Maybe put Dunn at #9 and McCann at #7 because Dunn won't clog the bases for Rollins and Rios?

Not free, I think it is $15 a team. Gameday ritual puts other H2H fantasy games to shame.

Hey, Garf.

I've been trying to contact you for a couple weeks now about returning to our B&P dynasty-like keeper league, but have not heard from you. Can you please let me know asap?

Thanks.

That has to be a keeper team, right?

Dominate is a verb. Dominant is an adjective.

I would hardly say that. It's different and fun it its own way, but anything that allows a middle reliever to score as many points as a top flight hitter or SP is inherently flawed. And the dismal message board often makes me feel like I'm just playing against computers, which begs the question: Why aren't I just playing OOTP?
