Meh, you lucked out playing ACS. Any dirtbag team (or manager) can beat him and his team. :-D

...and I don't post first place teams, I post winners. ;-D


Point taken. :^

18 team Dynasty, H2H points league, weekly rosters. 25 man rosters with 5 MiLB slots
Best Record (tied), Points lead between 100-300 since the all star break

C- Soto (Iannetta)
1B - Tex
2B - Alexei Ramirez (Erick Aybar)
3B - Jed Lowrie (Alex Gordan DL) (Nick Punto)
SS - Mike Aviles (Furcal DL) (Joaquin Arias)
OF- Corey Hart, Jay Bruce, Darin Erstad (Franceour) (Justin Upton DL) (Andruw Jones DL) (Luis Montanez)


Lowrie was my DH the last couple weeks, but I took a flier on Arias this week in that Texas lineup with Lowrie moving to 3B. The last OF spot is mix and match based on matchups.

P- Jenks, K-Rod, Valverde (Capps DL, for right now, activating tomorrow) (Marmol) (Zumaya DL) (Chris Ray DL)
Jake Peavy, Matt Garza, Roy Oswalt, Joe Blanton, Dave Bush (Brandon McCarthy) (Homer Bailey)

We start 5 pitchers of any type. I usually go with my three big closers, Peavy, and any two start pitcher from my bench (matchup based).
With a points league two-start pitchers on a decent offensive team (Bush, Blanton, Garza) can be very valuable, otherwise Ill take a closer who will usually outscore a 1 start pitcher.

Minor League Roster
Mat Gamel, Matt Weiters, Travis Snider, Mike Moustakas
Jarrod Parker (Troy Patten)


Upton and Furcal have never suited up for my team. I traded for Furcal when he was supposed to come back the last time (bad call) and dealt Quentin for Upton, Jones and Oswalt a few weeks back when I thought I was out of the playoff picture (was 3 games back in division, but still had points lead).

Yearly 5x5 roto league with some friends. Only 9 teams this year. Havent done all that well in the past... this year I have a frankly ridiculous 25 point lead.

C- Snyder
1B - Texiera
2B - Figgins
3B - Atkins
SS - Reyes
OF - Hamilton, Dunn, Beltran
Ut - Rios
BN - Cano, C. Pena

SP - Harden, Kazmir, Volquez, Lackey, Randy Johnson
RP - Rivera, Wood, Gonzales, Hoffman
DL - Joba, Carpenter

Obviously, a lot of gambles that paid off (Wood, Harden, Hamilton) and some lucky WW work (Volquez). Only move I made that was probably a mistake was trading Adrian Gonzales and his hot start for Dunn, but HR was, and is, my weakest stat and I thought Adrian would cool off sooner than he did.

The fact that I'm sweeping pitching stats despite not taking my first pitchers till rounds 8 and 9 (and losing the second of those, smoltz, very early on) (note: Lackey was a trade) will certainly influence my draft strategy next year.

Must have been some impressive trades for you to end up, in a competitive league, with 4 guys who went in the first round of my 9 team league. :)
