Spoken like a true nocal snob. :-°



I am actually from SoCal and a Laker fan (and an Angel fan). B-) I just had high expectations for the Lakers, and I am not used to them not even being in the playoff picture.

Hey did I slur the beloved gints, did I say I wonder who gets busted this year, did I wonder just what everyone was going to do with the fake beards they have, no I didn't. :-)

BTW oddman I can't stand the anaheim angles either, in fact I think I prefer the gints.

btw - i live in LA; the amount of Dodger and Angels hype right now is disgusting. As a small market fan (SD Padres loyalist), I always seem to be pulling for the little guys. The Oakland A's, Tampa Bay Rays, etc... On a similar tangental note, I'm also a die-hard Clippers fan, so its nice to see my guys finally have a product that could be mentioned in the same breath as the big boys. Having said all that, its a riot watching the Lakers implode -- have an eerily similar feeling that the Dodgers will as well. Greinke in a big city = trouble. A lot of expectations coupled with some aging oft injured vets - not loving the recipe.

Re: Dodgers - I'm expecting a mild disaster of some kind after taking the heart of what ailed the Red Sox and making it part of their core. They will be an interesting team to watch no matter what.

With already having 2 pitchers & needing SB, I decided to take a gamble. Crawford has nothing wrong with his wheels, and he should steal a ton at the top of that lineup. Good thing there are no fantasy point categories for throwing for outfielders. At 79 overall, he will either make you look smart or you have wasted your 7th round pick in most leagues. It was a tough call to draft him here, but he can outproduce what's left at outfield in this mock.

like the Hunter Pence and Crawford picks -- Pence a little more cause of the health. Crawford could hit atop that order and score 100 runs/ swipe 35-40 bags easy...he could also be injured and on DL by May, so theres that...

Regarding my Freeman selection, I can see a nice year in store for him - and actually pulled trigger earlier than I wanted to given the remainder 1B selections on board (Id usually be targeting a round later). The eye problems notwithstanding, I believe he had LASIK surgery in the off-season and if he can stop hanging out with blind McCann, he should be in store for a hefty amount of RBI opportunities and decent source of runs with a pretty legit BA. Solid line-up around him and hitting in middle of order. I've got him pegged for 85/27/100 .285

Was hoping Dickey would fall to me, but I think Halladay still has enough in the tank to be a #1 starter.
