Funston is a lunatic

What's worse - the fact that he wrote it or the fact that we actually read it? ;-)

Well, he did mention that he was using the Yahoo default rankings as a guideline. Still...

I thought the most hilarious pick(s) were the Crawford/Ichiro selections at the end of the first round. One man mock or not, who the hell would do that??? Leaving Helton, Rolen, and Beltre on the board? Any way you slice it, that's stupid. And while I'm at it, Pierre is NOT a late second-rounder.

The way the pitcher rankings are set up, guys like Sheets (5th), Peavy (5th), Hudson (6th) and Oliver Perez (7th) will go MUCH later than they should. If I could get those three of those guys in rounds four through seven, while getting, say, Beltran, Teixeira and M. Cabrera in the first three rounds, I would be a very happy man. Of course, that's assuming you're drafting with folks who are using the default rankings as the end-all/be-all.

I have only one thing to say about how stupid this is. Chipper Jones in the 4th round. Yeah OK that makes plenty of sense when he has David Wright going four rounds later. Laughable.

exactly. imagine if you worked as a fantasy analyzer. theres only so many things you can do at work every day. hes probably ranked everyone top to bottom a million times already, why not draft against yourself

If you read his profile, it says "His first fantasy experience came when he helped a priest with his fantasy league." What kind of fantasy? :-o :-b .

A priest shouldn't need help, he just needs to ask himself, what would Jesus do? I heard Jesus wants Pujols as his #1. 8-o

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.
