Vote for the Cafe Fantasy All-Star Team!

Postby Arlo » Thu Jul 01, 2004 8:07 pm

Had enough of ballot stuffing and popularity contest voting? For the entire month of July, we'll be holding a vote for this year's fantasy all-star squad on the Cafe's front page. Forget the big names - we're looking for the players who put fantasy teams over the top! The results should be interesting...

First up: Catchers! ;-D

Arlo, we've kind of done this already. We have a starting lineup thus far and are working on the reserves still. Its not my site though, so do as you please.


Edit: Nevermind, I misread. This is for fantasy. The other was real baseball. Sorry for the misunderstanding and carry on :-°

i already have issue with the poll... how can people vote for posada or kendall over estrada... I think people are still voting for the "real players" as opposed to their fantasy counterparts.

Arlo - maybe you want to flesh out the criteria that people should use to vote? I can see votes for both Estrada and Posada myself - I'd still rather have Jorge - he has the greater potential for impact. But Estrada has been more consistent and a surprise. Should I consider that in my vote? DO I vote baded on 5x5 or should other stats count? Anyway, you see where I am going.

Yes, I see where you're going, but I think it's best not to limit voters to one stzle of play. If we were only looking at 5x5, for example, and basing the results purely on stats, in most cases, there wouldn't be much need for a vote...
