Yes. I hate Burnett's outlook for this year and I dropped him after the draft.

Byrd is my SIXTH outfielder. He's pretty useless to my team whereas Blake is the only first baseman I drafted.

I've mentioned it before (a couple of times, actually), but last year in my league a guy chose all Japanese players and named his team "super happy fun team!!!"

Though I love the look of that all-B team, I gotta say.

i once was in a fantasy basketball league where half of my team (6 of 12 starters. 1 of 3 bench) was white. it wasnt on purpose. and i wound up winning in the end.
so i guess it wasnt stupid either.

baseball? ive only had one bad draft. its when i went in way too cocky, figuring i could easily overspend early and out-prospect at the end and just left myself wide open to people bidding on guys i bid on because they had decided i was a better propector than they were. ugh. i learned my lesson.

worst ive ever seen? the guy who drafts as many big names as he can, and then as many guys as possible at scarce positions, figuring to improve his team by trade. hey nimord, if you draft a better team in the first place, you wont need so many trades.
