Scary thing is, that can definitely be someone's legit staff. All guys that could have been had...someone has that staff or close to it and I'm jealous, very jealous.

The last start that Haren will enjoy from my bench. Now he's someone else's problem. It's not a slamdunk trade but I'm a year from competing (only a playoff team this year) so I get younger and pick up an interesting prospect.

I get Frazier and Mason Williams for Craig and Haren

I don't like Frazier as much as Craig ( :-L ) but I do really like Frazier. It's also easier to find Of'ers than 3B man in a 24 tm league although I do have 3 guys with starting jobs now.

Career .275 hitter against RHP with an OPS below 800. He has always been a platoon player in my eyes against the top tier righties.

Take it a step further you could have a rotation of...

Buchholz, Iwakuma, Sanchez, Lynn, Miller, Big Erv, Villanueva.

You would have spent basically nothing and had almost as good of stats as the one you listed which would have required multiple early picks. Then again in a world where Yuni B has 7 HR in part time play pretty much anything can happen.

You could be in 1st place with a lineup like this also, so yeah anything can pretty much happen.

I have McLouth, Crisp and Napoli on the same 12 team AL Only. Obviously I'm in first place by a landslide in that one. The best part is that I was being chirped throughout the whole draft for how stupid my decisions were. Got hit hard by the injury bug (Aybar, Callaspo, Viciedo, Crisp, Santos, Nova plus guys I drafted injured Madson, Paulino) but still in first by about a dozen points.
