Yup, the 2010 Masters:viewtopic.php?t=400082#p3190139
He finished 12th (15 teams).
IMO, it's easier to work around a Kershaw-Darvish strategy this year than in prior years. (It was really easy to build around pitching last year with so many undervalued hitters.) I was thinking of playing that same card if Kershaw slipped to me in Masters, but I would not have done the 2 C strategy though.
I figured I could take 3 closers and be fine on Ks with it as well. Honestly I took them because of how you dominated last year, but you did get Chris David last year too
I was an idiot for not believing in Goldschmidt and took Zimmerman in Round 4, FWIW. Otherwise, I would have had CarGo and Goldschmidt as my first 2 hitters; Kershaw and Felix my first two starters.
I also managed to get Scherzer and Bailey later, so I don't believe I would've dominated if I didn't have those bargains either. Plus, I had Rios and Soriano and found gold with all my closers. Of course, I found the mother of all gems in Chris Davis too.
It's trickier to find all those undervalued hitters this season for the Kershaw-Darvish strategy though.
