Fair comment. I agree no one there has a really well balanced team but I guess that's the purpose now of trading.

Suprisingly not very many.

Roid rage and Nirvana were the only two.

Not me O:-)

Any other comments / feedback? I would appreciate it.

I'm using this league to trial something, which I'll reveal shortly.

Schwing!! I am always intrigued by theoretical approaches to fantasy baseball. Or are you just going to give up the Chicken Wing receipe you used to distract the other teams? :-D

Re the draft, VMart in the 3rd 8-o, Glaus in the 4th (over Mora? and Blalock?), Piazza in 9? Palmeiro at all? I am unable to guess the secret and there often seem to be people who will ignore injuries or whatever for sentimental reasons (is there a Troy Glaus fan club?)

There's going to be reaches in any draft. There's also going to be steals. There was only 2 teams that auto-drafted. Looking at teams 1 and 2 you would think that those were them but no they were both there. And to be fair, neither team will compete.

Other than that I think most teams look reasonably competitive.
I know for a fact there are at least 6 decent owners in this league. The two that autodrafted I don't know although 1 of them obviously pre-ranked very well.

My team IS Hayburner. According to the Cafe guys that responded, there is no stand out team. The overall quality of the draft is a mixture, good and bad. That's basically what I wanted to hear.

I'm 99% sure that I win this league by a big margin. I have picked a number of players that are high risk / high reward types (I always do). At this stage though all should play in ST and all should be ready to go at the beginning of April. I don't see my team as being any riskier than any other team in the league.

What I'm going to do however is punt a category. Totally.

I don't see which category you are punting?

You're going to have to be less cryptic. I'm very slow today.
