It's going to be a little more difficult to do that in our league. :-D

Not with my roster. ;-D

There are some pretty good rosters in that league.

BTW, is Verlander still available? I'll probably be looking for a better 6th keeper.

I Fenway Punk, vow to:

1. Completely fag out for Adrian Gonzalez this year. The potential of his bat at Fenway is ludacris. Homer is as homer does.
2. Continue to point out that everyone who thinks Desmond Jennings is late round sleeper material is off by one year.
3. Ditto point 2 in regards to Jeremey Hellickson. Until they log 150 MLB innings... look elsewhere.
4. Stand by this fact in regards to the Rays: there are 4 worth owning, and in this order: Longo, Price, Neimann, Joyce.
5. Will not draft Hanley in the top 5. Might take Tulo in the 8-11 range.
6. Continue to treat C and SS as non-positions.
7. Target Dan Uggla in round 5.
8. Draft Kendry Morales in round 8 if he's still around.
9. Not go earlier than round 4 for Jason Heyward.
10. Go against past preaching and take an "elite" pitcher in rounds 2-3. Getting harder and harder to find 200innings with 200 K.
11. Draft Zack Greinke if point 10 is ignored.
12. Absolutely, positively, DO NOT leave round 6 without a 3B.
13. If point 12 is ignored, root REALLY hard for a return to norm from Aramis Ramirez, or wish for big things from Chris Johnson.
14. Go against AL East naysayers and draft Toronto pitching. You'll get more back than what you pay.
15. Not go overboard for Mike Stanton. See: Davis, Chris 2009.
16. Continue to blast bloggers who post their team from a 10 team league and ask how they did. You are in a 10 team league. Congratulations- your team is stacked. Guess what? So is everyone elses in your league.
17. Take advantage of the line of thinking that Beltre is only good in a contract year, if it does indeed adversely affect his ADP.
18. Hopefully end the 3 year streak of my first round guy having the worst year of his career when I pick them: Sizemore '08, Wright 09, Hanley '10.
19. Continue to point out the tactical advantage it is to have a Rajai Davis/Juan Pierre type when playing h2h.
20. Go absolutey nuts for Manny Ramirez if he comes to the plate with bases loaded, even if it's against my Socks. He's 1 shy of tying Gehrig's record for slams, 2 shy of setting a new one.

Oh...I guess I don't know? If we aren't, I suppose that's OK with me....I'd be pretty bummed though I have a ton of solid young players.

Don't want to get this in the open in full, but I did email you guys a few times and didn't hear anything back.

I'll give it another email/PM so that I know for sure if the league is still on.

I vow to hold my water as long as reasonably possible on drafting pitching this season since the depth is incredible.

1. Reach for players I really want...before somebody else takes them off the board.
If God does not like the way I'm living my life, he can tell me himself.

If 12 AM is disbanded I will keep that league and its looking like 12 AM will be disbanded.

My Vows for this year:

1. To actually do research before the draft on not rely soley on my draft software to rank my players.
2. Not to draft (and thus overpay) for TWO top 3bmen this year thus leaving me with no money for a 1bman. :P
3. Not to spend $260 on Hitting, leaving me $40 to spend on pitching.
4. To never miss setting my lineup because I forgot.
