In my 14 team league I have mostly old boring reliable farts like Ibanez, Damon, Hunter etc because in that league everyone reached on all the young talent. In that league I ended up with Haren and K-Rod even though I'm 'anti pitching' early simply because they both fell too far.
I feel my soul rejecting itself when I draft a top closer early because they've fallen too far. I know it's the right move, but it feels like I'm going against everything I stand for.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
