Glad to hear it man, thanks!Giambis wrote:I only looked quickly, but Bigh0rt, nice first few rounds there. Reyes, Vlad, Teix, Markakis, and Lackey is great start.
Yeah, I was thrilled with my 2 - 4 Round Picks. I had a tough decision between Reyes, Holliday, and Wright with my 1st Rounder, but I've never owned Reyes in any league ever, so I figured it'd be fun and interesting to build that way. I figured if I didn't grab Lackey when I did, the next time I got to pick it would be slim pickins for a #1 SP, and even with Lackey I felt I needed to get strong upper end depth at SP, which I think I eventually did do. I outlined the rest of my draft, if you click on the link of my name in Andy's piece.Grounded Polo wrote:The Cafe member picks were all pretty solid.
It wouldn't suprise me at all to see the 4 of us all finish in the Top 6. I was really impressed with the way ABS, Mugs, and Rump assembled their teams.
surprising to see you pass up on wright at the 4 spot. he generally has been going 2nd in many leagues i see, but i can see the argument for reyes. you could have gotten cole instead of lackey though.
Heheheh, I had no idea he'd slip down to the damn 8th pick, when I passed on him -- of course friggin' Rump gets him!! As I said, though, I've never owned Reyes in any league, and I wanted to give it a go, and I can justify taking him instead of Wright, who I had originally intended to take at that spot if he were available. Once I took Wright, the plan was to grab Chipper at 3B as late as I felt I could, and Kent at 2B -- was pleased that I got them both.
Bizarre fact -- my team is loaded wth Braves
