I like the response so far. As soon as I know who the 12 cafeholics will be I'll post that in here and I'll be sure to let everyone know of the 2 "n00bs" we choose as well. Most of these decisions are likely a couple months away still so don't anticipate any decisions right away.

Looking at the feedback you should do an even split of Holics and wannabe Holics...level the playing field.

I think I tried to get in on this league last year as I recall. The consensus response from the holics was fear the Cow, fear him. I think J35J sent me an e-mail to that effect:

Dear The Cow,

As you know you are the most talented and knowledgeable fantasy expert that the Cafe has to offer. However I regret to inform you that the holics unanimously have voted to ban you from this league because well they at least want to have a chance at winning. I would say maybe next year, but the reality is we/the holics, fear The Cow and your often unconventional line of thinking that in hind sight is friggin brilliant! I do thank you in advance for your recommendations for drafting Josh Hamilton and Carlos Quentin, I know they will be monsters in 2008 since you gave them your stamp of approval.

Looking forward to learning more from you,
J35J

Oh well no big deal guys. What I have chosen to do is enlighten the Cafe with an article that will guarantee success for even the Yoda's of the world.

We should thank you for that, it was because of you that we discovered a terrible error in that icon's algorithm. ;-D

I agree with Ken that a 50/50 split would be more fun. Holics vs noobs for bragging rights could be a grudge match, provided we pick better noobs than last season.

I really n00b'd it up, I was in contention for a top 4 spot(most of it as a #2 or 3) for 80% of the season until I n00b'd it up with a few horrible trades... The worse part is I wasn't even whamboozled by some slick talking vet, I just donk'd off assets for below level compensation. :~( I r teh n00b
