WOW - What a team! - Updated

Postby GreenFish » Sat Apr 01, 2006 7:37 pm

Ok I have never done a CBS league before. Just for kicks to see what the interface was like I decided to join an autodraft league. I did not want to waste time with a live draft as this was my 3rd league this year (2 others are yahoo). So, I preranked my players and today was the draft. Look at the team I got! WOW! 5X5 Roto 10 team league. Should I just put my name on 1st place now? ;-)

C - J LaRue
C - B McCann
1B - R Howard
2B - A Soriano
3B - A Rodriguez
SS - M Young
OF - J Edmonds
OF - C Tracy
OF - V Guerrero
OF - G Jenkins
OF - A Dunn
UT - M Kotsay
UT - D Ortiz

And here are my pitchers:
Cliff Lee
D Haren
T Hudson
J Beckett
F Cordero
D Turnbow
J Isringhausen
T Gordon
J Patterson

I am going to probably ditch LaRue and Kotsay and maybe see if I can package one of my closers and a pitcher (Hudson?) for a top notch starter. I guess my offense could use a little more speed too but that is probably nitpicking.

LOl - I wish this was my money league! :-D

strong team, but don't count your chickens just yet...

Neither of your catchers is all that good

Howard has to prove he can hit lefties

And Becket is always a question mark.

But still, a good team.

No idea how you go Arod, Guerrero and Ortiz. Awesome batting but you might be a little weak in SB. Also you don't have an upper tier SP. Try to get one. Can you post the draft results? I want to see how this happened.

ARod at #3? Vlad in 3rd round? MYoung in 6th round? WTF? I would just sit on this team and expect to win, but it would seem you need to work less hard than most to be successful. Good to be you.

Yeah, any league in which you get Vlad in the third round is probably not worth playing. It is fun to see all those players on one team though...enjoy.

You get 3 guys that usually are drafted in the first round. Young drops to 58...don't brag about winning a league that doesn't seem to have a clue

I don't take this league seriously. If you read the 1st post you will see that I joined this league just for kicks and to see what a CBS league was like. I can tell you one thing, their pre-rank system sucks. There is no way I should have ended up with this team. I find the whole thing kind of amusing actually.
