Rockies hands down. Holliday/Atkins keepers...I typically end up with Helton and pick up at least another one along the way.

I like to see the teams that have been in the dumps come back out....but with fantasy a lot of these teams have the young players I have as keepers: Tampa, KC, Colorado, SF.

I'm a Yankee fan but I enjoy watching the younger teams develop...which makes it a lot easier to be a Yanks fan right now with their emphasis on bringing up the kids from the farm.

Being in two dynasty leagues, I'm always drawn to younger players like a moth to a flame.
So I enjoy watching Milwaukee and Tampa Bay very much. Gallardo, Hart, Weeks, Fielder, Parra etc and Shields, Upton, Sonnanstine, Gomes, Longoria etc are fascinating to me.


My sentiments exactly.

When I had Miguel Cabrera and Hanley Ramirez on my team last year, I actually found myself becoming a "fan" of the Marlins. Obviously, I didn't really get upset when they lost, but I wanted them to compete in the AL East.

even as a twins fan, i seem to never draft twin players, they just go too early in my league since we all live in mn. although one guy always seems to have half his team as yankees :-S

Great thread.

Last year I joined a dynasty league with people from this site. It is different from most. We had to pick a MLB team and pick 8 guys from that team. Those were are first 8 picks. It's a 14 team league. I signed up kind of late, so I chose the Brewers over my Twins.

I then picked Martin and Phillips with my first two picks in the draft. We also have a 3 player minor draft. I have Longoria and Headley also. We have to keep at least 6 players from your chosen team.

So to sum it up, I root for the Brewers players to do well. I don't care if the team wins or loses though. :-D

I got A-ROD, Abreu, Kennedy in two teams, and planning to draft Matsui and Rivera today.
I still hate the Yankees.
As a cubs fan I only got Soto.
