He decides to draft for 12 teams and then starts up a SS run incredibly early.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

That is funny!! "ooooh, the other teams are going for shortstops, I'd better grab one now!!"

I wonder what his wife makes of THAT? "Leave me alone for a few hours, I'm going to be drafting against myself" I guess that's what he does at work though...

How is a masterbatory draft any different than just a rankings list? That was a silly idea to begin with. Oh, what to do? Should I draft player x or will I draft him before my next pick comes around? Oh, I see closers are coming off the board. How long with this closer run last?

The benefit of a mock draft is that it combines the thinking of 12 different guys, to give you a consensus valuation of players that is much better than just one guy's alone. The wisdom of crowds, dude.

That's a GREAT term! :-b


But if you do too many of those kind of drafts... will you go blind?

Wow, must be nice to sit around all day writing about fantasy baseball and getting paid for it, especially when you are clueless and are basically winging it 8-o

Is this guy like schizophrenic or something? Whats the point of drafting with yourself? Oh, and Rollins, Furcal AND Nomar over Micheal Young? Not only is he insane, hes also on crack.

Well, listening to the guy talk on ESPNews should be a tell tale sign that he has nothing better to do w/ his time.
