To address the comments on pitching... it was a 12 team league, and I waited until round 5 where I took Wainwright, Lester, and Verlander in that order. I had pick 10.

And I'm sorry to continue to sound like Nostrodamous, but I did not get lucky with Car-Go. I made sure to select him in all of my drafts for a reason.

If you thought Cargo was going to be the 1 overall player you wouldn't have waited until the 9th round to take him. A great gamble on your part? Sure! The second coming for fantasy baseball gurus? Hardly. I took Liriano in the 10th round, shoot I took Hamilton in the 8th, big whoops.

We all gamble, sometimes we get lucky.

If he knew he would be there in the 9th, why would he take him earlier? He was responding to a comment that he was lucky with CarGo which he felt wasn't true. He didn't say he knew he'd be #1 overall either... you just sound bitter, to be honest. Must have been a rough year.

Haha, read my previous posts I won a considerable amount of money, but it wasn't because I am smarter than everybody, it's because I gambled and won, and got LUCKY.

Saying you aren't lucky and just that good is just silly.

Bitter? Where is that coming from?

I am not saying Cargo wasn't a huge pickup, and I am not saying he didn't champion him before the 2010 draft, I 'm saying Cargo out performed everyones expectations, except for Fenway Punk's because he is claiming to have all the answers, that's what I am saying.

Calm down. I don't have all the answers, I'll be the first to tell you that. I will also be the first to tell you that I am VERY VERY good at this. Look, as I've said before... I eat, sleep, and breathe baseball. Heck, I still play semi-pro ball because I just can't let go. Since my brain has been replaced with leather and red-laces, fantasy baseball comes naturally, and I enjoy using this talent to help others. Sheesh. :-[
