I'd like to give some props to Scott Podsednik, who singlehandedly won the stolen base category for me today.
I play in H-H sportsline keeper leagues. We have an advanced custom scoreing system in one league. If you remember the sportsline mixed league "experts" draft that was viewable live online, I ripped Scott Engal for takeing Pods in the 8th round, on a cafe thread where a bunch of us cafe forum members commented on and critiqued them while they were drafting, http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/foru ... sc&start=0
. Pods was something like the mid 90's overall player taken in the 8th round of their draft bye Scott Engal. I think my quote on that thread was

Well before before the draft in my H-H sporstline keeper league I ranted on the league message boards and posted the same critique I just quoted myself on. During our draft, in which that league we keep 8 keepers per team, Pods fell to the 11th round, or 19th rounder after all keepers of an 8 keeper league. Pods was still out there in that round and although I thought he would be a bust, I went against instinct and took him anyway. No pun intended but STEAL!!!!!!
A few other owners of which I'm on good terms with in that league, in that we swap general baseball talk messages with, make fair trade proposals with each other, and ask for outside opinion on trade offers from other teams, have since been ribbing me and accuseing me of trying to sandbox the league.
Sorry to hijack a thread but I had to get my Podsednik story out there.
