Well, look at your players drafted to the top right. You are the only team with only 11 hitters right now, the rest of us have 12 or even 13. So you will be behind in the counting stats for hitters, but you are dominating the counting stats for pitching. Guess what's going to happen when you draft 2 more hitters and the rest of us fill out our pitching?

Yup this was a lot of fun. If anyone cares to do a write-up on your team, strategy, picks you are happy with, mistakes you think you made, players you really wanted but missed out on, etc, feel free. I'll start a thread for it. Thanks to all who participated B-)

Just for fun this is going to be an unofficial no moves league, you can replace a player before the season starts if he is DLd and out for the year. I have Carpenter to replace not sure if there's another guy who's bitten the dust since. I'll make a pick to replace him when the draft ends.

Good luck to all in all your real drafts this season!

Ok, here are the final projected standings. Again, not my projections and I don't agree with much of them. Nobody has anything projected for Vazquez so I used Chris Capuano instead. An interesting exercise to do with your own projections to get a good idea of what you think of your own team.
