The All Out Stupidest Draft Strategy

Postby wrigleyivy » Fri Mar 26, 2004 2:16 pm

What is the most outrageous draft strategy you have implemented in fantasy baseball?

Mine, I once went one and one (hitter then pitcher) almost the entire draft. Dumb dumb dumb.
People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring. Rogers Hornsby

saw a guy take catchers the first 4 rounds once then try to shop them for guys like bonds, sosa, helton, etc. guess he thought people would really want a good catcher but if they did wouldn't they take one early like he did?

Saw somebody draft Bronson Arroyo with his 1st pick on ESPN and proceeded to fill the rest of his roster with red sox including reserves.
