Alright folks, thanks for all the feedback. First I'd like to say that the title of this forum "I dare you..." was simply a gimmick to get people to check out the site, hence the immediate condradiction in the actual content of my first post. People love to rip arrogant people a new one. I suspected a bunch of people would jump at the opportunity to do so and I've been roven correct. I knew my team was weak in all the areas Xlo88d pointed out. I just wanted to hear what some people had to say, any pointers etc. I do take some degree of pride in my 3 first rounders, but am also aware that they're useless in a head to head league if the rest of the team sucks. Yes I chose a bunch of unprovens and old geezers. As with the cubbies of old, I'm, always a fan of underdogs.
If Nen has a flashback year ( although it's looking less and less likely) he's got 30+ saves and an ERA under 3.00.
Frank Thomas has his pride on the line and will perform again. He's gotta make one last push if he expect to make the hall of fame.
Joe Mauer will be awesome a la A.J. Pyrzcynski.
Randy Johnson will get his innings because there's aren't any stars on the pitching staff any more; innings = Ks when you're talking Randy Johnson.
Texiera was a wild card pick, if the rangers ever give hima stable position he will really shine. Jose Reyes will score 90 runs and steal 25 bases.
Carlos Lee doesn't need to be on a good team to perform.
Jeromy Burnitz had 31 HR last year and now he's in Col, you can expect that number to go up. He does suck in every other category, but he was my last pick and I'm confortable with the gamble.
I'm pretty sure that's all I have to say in my defense. We'll see what happens. Thanks for everyone who left some feedback that was constructive in even the smallest way, although "you're team is stacked" (and nothing else said), doesn't really help.I don't need an ego inflation, in fact sharp criticism is exactly what I wanted. Good luck to everyone this fantasy year and remember, you're money is well invested on a bet that the cubs WILL be in the World Series. Winning? that's another issue altogether,but rest assured they will make it to Series.
