As a mod, yes you do. Go to main forum page for Masters. Then click on Moderator Control Panel. Select the thread, then click on select desired action on bottom. Sticky the thread and then click submit. ;-D

No, Ironman is right. I'd already tried it. We do not have that option.

I've asked "the powers that be" for help.

Gomez could be a very nice pick. Thought about him a lot before taking Gardner. Might regret not pulling the trigger.

I wanted Gardner. I see no reason he couldn't top Ichiro in AVG and steals.

Gardner's career numbers suggest that hoping for anything beyond a .270 AVG is probably too optimistic. Ichiro hit .322 with the Yanks last year, and is a much safer bet to bat .285 or better IMO, so I feel pretty safe slotting Ichiro a fair ways above Gardner on the AVG side. Gardner will almost assuredly get more steals though, regardless of where he bats in the order.

I have Ichiro pegged to bat second mind you, and if he ends up lower in the order the rest of his counting stats (the ones that push his value up a little above Gardner's) will suffer.

Yeah the AVG thing may have been a mistake. My main league I do plays OBP instead of AVG so sometimes I forget to get out of OBP mindset when thinking about AVG.

I'm not drafting Gardner for AVG. I want him for steals and runs. If I get anything more that .265 out him for AVG, I'll consider that gravy.

I keep thinking about how great he was two seasons ago, before he got injured. Really was on fire for awhile. I'm hoping for at least a little bit of that again.
