I would be interested to see your rankings...


The fact that you already have a top 25 when there is still a months worth of games left is funny.

I start doing some rankings in January.

Im loving ARod in the first next year. Hopefully I can get him in the middle part of the first. Anything after the 5th pick would be great value. ARod works hard and will probably take up a notch this offseason to prove he is a top, if not the top, player in baseball. Im buying all the way.

Hehe. He's going to do a 2005 in 2007, and then people are going to start wanting to pick him over Pujols again. ;-7

HR for A-Rod.

I guess that bat speed has really diminished ;-7

If I'm not mistaken, A-Rod has hit a HR in the last couple of games including tonight. Must be an aberration. He's no Jose Reyes, 5-cat stud extraordinaire. ;-7

Did you know that in A-Rods last 15 plate appearances he has not struck out once? That's too much contact for a player with poor bat speed.

Like I said before I have been playing since 1998, and I just discovered this site around December when I broke my leg. So if 8 years experience means I still have no idea what I am doing yeah ok whatever. And I play on sportingnews.com in 12 team leagues. At least 10 of those teams every year know what they are doing and stick with it all year long. I really very badly want to say a few things but I already have two of those yellow stickers!!!

If you aren't a newbie, then TAKE THE L OFF! Many people join the cafe without ever putting the L on their name... the purpose of it is to allow very new (or young) players a chance to associate, but also warn others that they may not have the same amount of knowledge as more veteran posters. It seems like you don't consider yourself one of these, so take the training wheels off and remove the L... until then the newb comments will keep rolling in.
