Waiting this long on pitching, I'm very pleased with Lee/Corbin/Lynn/Dickey/Cishek/Rodney. Personally expect Dickey to have a good year with his back issues behind him and his velocity coming back.

I know how it is with injuries as last year Tulo killed me in this league I believe. With that said I think with taking Headley at pick 210 is really no risk at all. Those who have taken players like Tulo are at more risk because of where they were drafted. Headley is in a contract year, and even though he has a calf issue, I think he is a sure bet to be well worth 210 overall pick.

I know much has happened since I first posted on best value, but wanted to chime in.

I am glad some of you liked the shark pick. I was shocked he fell that far. Same goes for Price and Miller who I felt I picked up later than I would have expected.

I should know better than to take any injury risks after last year. It wasn't just that I had guys hurt, it was horrible luck with timing. Seemed like every time a guy went down it was just prior to the first day of the weekly scoring period when they couldn't be replaced due to yahoos next day rule. I got zero from guys like Kemp as all his stats would accrue when he was activated from DL on a Weds through Sun (on my DL of course) then I get him in the next week and he'd get hurt again before I got anything at all :~(

I'm fine with that though, otherwise I would have never been able to get them all. OFC my projections show me near the top even lacking steals (scours at BChinly). Whats the fun of drafting a team based on someone elses opinion anyway :-)

Also, Asdrubal is 28 and coming off a year he battled nagging injuries. I'm on his bounceback bandwagon.


I love the combo of Carpenter and Hamilton too much :D. Hopefully it'll bring me to the top in steals and runs


You will have to get passed me to be at the top in steals and runs. Of course only my opinion, but I feel I own both those categories. Hamilton isn't going to single handily win you steals. :-D

I took Headley at 190 in Masters and I feel like he fell there. I don't expect 2013 or 2012, but something in between those two could make him a very profitable player. And if he sucks, he droppable.

I thought about Headley but didn't need an extra lottery ticket, and after taking Hart on a few teams last year I'm hesitant to draft someone I know is hurt.
