unless your top 2 bats are Carlos Lee & R Palmerio, theirs no way possible to have a staff like that in a 14 team league, unless of course it consists of absoultute morons. all 4 of those guys were gone by mid/late 2nd rd in my 14 team league
I drafted Halladay and RJ, (2nd and 3rd) and traded Glaus for Pedro straight up a week before he went down from a nervous Pedro owner. I traded for Schmidt in a package 3 for 1 where I gave up some decent talent, but I did get the better end of the deal. I had the first pick in the draft, making my best bat A-Rod, probably followed by Thome (who I recently dealt for). My team was considered one of the better ones on draft day, but it was through incessant trading that I really have made my team. A lot of luck and good timing also helped. It's a keeper, featuring a few minor leaguers on each team, which offered the flexibility for me to trade for such great players from teams that are looking towards the future. My offense was lacking, but due to an extremely good draft - marked with some luck I managed to deal high on Benitez, Glavine, Mesa, etc and get some good bats. Some good value picks (Berkman in the 5th) have helped as well. My farm system took a hit, but my team is better for it. It can be done, and the league is full of competent owners - not morons. One inactive owner is the only mark on an otherwise great league, and by far the best I've ever been in.
