I draft them for how they're going to help my clubhouse atmosphere.

I tried that last year and was completely disappointed. It was probably my fault though, I think my character rankings were just off. I put way too much stock in Leadership Over Replacement Player and ended up with a couple of prima donnas that brought everyone down.

Yah, the key is to get Kevin Millar around about the 12th round. He does a good job keeping all your other personalities loose.

Ack! I'm all for winning titles, but the first time my team starts a "Cowboy Up" chant I would have to resign. :-o

So far this year, Konerko. Every game I expect him to breakout but noooo... Oh wait never mind he would be the definition of anti-clutch.

I think I would have to say Theriot. I actually drafted him because he was mentioned in one the articles on this site and he has made a great MI. So many runs, hits, great OBP and the odd SB. Another player is DeRosa, he's all I had to fill in for ARod and I didn't lose while Arod was out.

1a. McLouth...this kid is amazing, he seems to cool down then bam...right back to it
1b. Kevin Youkilis, doesn't see much time with Chipper and Morneau at the corners, but usually twice a week he delivers when i call on him

My clutch player this year has been Mike Napoli, my backup catcher to McCann. Why do you ask? He doesn't start much but when he has he has come through. Here is Napoli's line on my team:

4 G, 6/14, 1 BB, 5 R, 4 HR, 5 RBI, .467 OBP

With McCann it makes my Catcher this:

48 G, 60/178, 18 BB, 29 R, 12 HR, 36 RBI, .396 OBP

4 games, 4 HR. If that is not clutch then I don't know what is!

I have to 2nd the Napoli pick. I won't say Berkman because I expected great numbers from him. Napoli was my last pick in the 23rd round and is my only catcher. It has been great to sign in the next day after his games and see the production. The guy is not only hitting for power, he has also picked up some SBs too.

I'm gonna have to say Carlos Quentin. A-rod, Furcal, and Smoltz go down, and BAM, Quentin goes all Pujols on the league for a few weeks and keeps me at the top of the rankings.

Not a big name but Cristian Guzman has been one of my best players all year. Consistent and always comes up with big hits when I need the points. Not bad for a 35th round pick.
