I had to double check just to make sure, but he actually asks HIMSELF questions regarding a draft, and then answers them! :*)

wrong.

After the draft, I asked each participant three specific questions about his draft. And, not to be left out, I also had one league member scrutinize my selections and send a couple questions my way, as well. Here's a look at what each league member had to say:


not that it really matters. man, that draft is TERRIBLE!!!!! anyone that takes carl crawford 4th overall should be banished from fantasy sports forever, a la shoeless joe.

Yeah he's not asking himself the questions. Maybe you should have read it a third time... ;-7

And Crawford isn't a horrible pick at 3. His age would suggest power growth and a little more plate discipline. give him a .300 ave, 20 homers with 50-60 SBs and you have a yourself a very valuable player. I wouldn't take him this high but i can see why someone would.

Am I missing something here? Or is Funston a member of the cafe?

Someone correct me if I am wrong. Is he really Krysoul?

I got the impression that he was just quoting the article without putting it in quotes.

8-o No way.

Oh and Crawford is a fine 4th pick overall when you consider his upside and steals scarcity. A gamble yes, but a good one.


It's a gamble all right.. I can't imagine taking him over Teix or Vlad, or even Papi and Manny. Maybe I'm just on the outside looking in at all this crawford hype.
