Haven't, but it would be interesting. The draft from last year is on the second sheet of the same document:

That's the plan, but don't hold me to it.

I had figured out a pre-draft strategy but I had to quickly scrap it once the draft started. I wanted to retry something I used years ago i.e. a sort of modified Sandra Bernhard. I was trying for a solid showing in all categories but stock up on SBs and Saves. When I tried this before I managed to stay close and then in August traded off some of my speedy guys and a reliever for what I was lacking elsewhere. I didn't win the pool but if I remember correctly I finished in the top 3 and didn't embarass myself too much. I think the difference was the pool I tried it in was a draft. In this pool it only took some high bidding on e.g. Ellsbury and Crawford to mess things up for me. I think I definitely overspent on Cabrera but if I hadn't have taken him I would have overspent on AGon. The other two guys that I think I overspent a bit on are Longoria and Cain. I knew I was overbidding at the time but still did it - maybe I need an intervention. Overall I'm pretty happy with my starters but one or two injuries and it all goes down the drain. I also think I'm going to have to work hard to accumulate enough HRs to stay competitive - maybe I can pick away at it like RSN hopes to do with his SBs.
Overall I think it was a very enjoyable auction. It will be interesting to see how it pans out for some of the teams e.g. Silent Rob's pitching poor team versus Ayebatter's pitching rich team etc.
Good luck to you all! ;-D

Sorry about jumping the gun but I was going by noon site time. I think I also jumped the gun then on my $2 bid for Gutierrez (not that it matters now?). I will try to do better in the future. :*)
