His first 4 picks in the latest draft I'm in with him were Bautista, Granderson, Teix, BJ Upton so yeah he definitely practices what he preaches! Might be 2200 AB of sub .250 AVG right there. I on the other hand passed on Upton and Zobrist because I drafted Bruce and didn't want 2 AVG anchor's. I can't say I fully agree with ignoring AVG early, I think AVG and R are usually the underrated stats of fantasy baseball and the easier places to game the system on offense.

And if you look at that draft as a whole I stated that I'd have been satisfied with anything projected over .270 and ended up at .275 (my projections), and GF had me at .277 with his. Go back to your leagues last year and tell me that .275-.277 wouldn't have been at least middle to upper reaches of batting average for your league.
