holliday will be someone i'll target for the 2nd half since he'll likely get traded to a better place.

Nice phrasing, it sounds like he's going to be DFA'd and picked up by the Angel of Death. (or maybe just the Angels...hmm...)

I don't think I have a "mancrush" on him, but sadly enough, I've been looking over my "Final Roster" for the last 3 years and R. Cano (2B) is on all of them, despite drafting him in none of my leagues.

Even though it's only been 1 solid season, I'm going to have to say my mancrush right now is J. Hamilton.
1. I'm a Ranger fan
2. I took him in the 16th rd last year, and he turned out to be the best player in my OF consisting of: Carlos Lee, Crawford and C. Granderson.

Kemp is mine for sentimental reasons.

I thought the guy had talent but wasn't getting enough playing time. I remember hearing Steve Phillips tell Colin Cowherd that this guy was going to be really good this season and that fantasy baseball owners shouldn't grow impatient. So I traded Brad Lidge (my last closer) for Kemp and was blasted for it in my keeper league. The guy I traded Kemp to thought he had pulled one over on me and then we met the next week in a H2H league. Kemp was given regular playing time and proceeded to blast 3 HR and steal 5 or 6 bases while batting out of his mind in the percentage categories. I had a solid team before him, but his power and SB capability really made me hard to beat.

Now I own him every one of my teams...so far.

oh.. the man crush...

have have a tendency to get caught up in these things... it's been Zack Greinke for a while.. since his 2nd season when I went to a game in KC when he used to throw the big looping curve. I have had him on my team every year since.. but then last year he went and put a whole good season togather. this year he got drafted way too early and now he's gone from my team.. i miss him.. I argued that I deserve him and other people shouldn't be allowed to draft him, but that didn't go over so well.. shhh.. it's ok though..

don't tell zack, but last year I was secretly emotionally cheating on him with Evan Longoria.. and it's a keeper league... Evan and I are gonna be together forever!!!!

for me it's Brian Roberts, ever since he did me a solid in 2005 when he hit 18 homers. going to college in baltimore at the time certainly helped. haven't had a surprise player like that ever since, so he's stuck around. i even forgave him his steroids. :-X
