I actually traded A-rod during that period! But I ended up with Vlad and Soriano in the end so i'm not too upset...

thanks for your input erboes

Well, for my fantasy MVP I'd like to throw out these names:
Juan Pierre
Scott Podsednik
Carl Crawford
Edgar Renteria
Carlos Lee
Javy Lopez
Rocco Baldelli
Marcus Giles
Angel Berroa
Michael Young
Milton Bradley
Jose Guillen
Hank Blalock
Eric Gagne
Jason Schmidt
Esteban Loiaza
Kevin Brown
Tim Worrell
Joe Borowski
Livan Hernandez
Brandon Webb

Why? Because they all earned $20 or more worth of stats over their projected value for 2003. ... inaldollar

That's important because while you expect Vlad and A-Rod and Manny, etc. to do well, you took them in your first or second draft slot. Most of these guys fell into the late rounds of the draft and still gave you a huge year, and therefore should be commended from a fantasy perspective. In fact, I could have punted home runs with this lineup and still delivered a Top2 finish in a 12 team league, I bet.
To me, that's what makes a guy a fantasy MVP. And the guy out of these players who provided the most value ($earned - $bought) was Scott Podsednik. So he's my fantasy MVP. Loiaza would be my fantasy CY Winner.

You are right on, Swarmee. The trick for next season is to pick those players who'll be on that list for '04. If you get enough of them you win.

kind of worried cuz Vlad is one of my keepers and he didn't steal squat after he came back...

I recently acquired Vlad in a keeper league, and I'm not concerned about his back at all. All my doubts were answered when he hit that 502 foot home run that dented the stadium last year. 8-o
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
