Well, we're officially 30 days into the season. It looks like Silent Rob has won round one of the Hitting Rich versus Pitching Rich argument with ayebatter. I still think we'll have to wait and see what happens when ayebatter's offence picks up and Rob's pitching starts to fade (the Atronachs' pitching better fade or the real contest will be who comes in second).
There are some big bubbles that are likely going to burst - Konerko, Cano, Clippard, Alex Gonzalez, Wigginton, Jimenez (and the Canadian Animals' ERA?), KJ, Ethier.
Overall I'm pretty happy with my team. I don't know how long my punchless offence can hang in there (welcome back Manny!). My SS slot is an eyesore (I know the Cuban Missile starts slowly but I'm starting to think I blew $18 there - should I have gone for Jeter?). So far I've avoided the injury bug. As for pitching I could use some wins but it's a cardinal sin in Fantasy Baseball to chase wins right? Wandy and Nolasco could be doing better. I wish Hoffman would just retire and let Villanueva take over. I grabbed Meek in my 460 player deep Sabremetric wRC H2H pool but when I got back here that damn hyperactive Bwanna had snapped him up!
My other bullpen of Villanueva, Gregerson, and Meek are pulling me through some tight scrapes but thanks to Bwanna it's not going to happen in this pool.
So how about you guys? Is any of us gonna catch the not so Silent Rob's Atronachs?
