...uh...so what do I do?


My neighbor asked me to sign up for fantasy baseball, and I do what everyone asks of me, no limits.

What should I draft? I think there's like 15-20 heads in the league. Pitchers only? Any positions to avoid? Help!

Draft Ryan Howard with your first pick, he's going to have a monster season. If you don't believe me PM Phreak.

A rape package will be sent to your house. Make sure you open it with your mouth....and what do I do if Howard is off the board?  :paranoid

Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.

I joined my first one...17 teams, weekly head to head.

I got farged by the auto pick...My first pick was King Felix, then Strasburg, and I was in line to draft Wainwright but didn't realize what happened until three picks later....anyway...ended up with Matt Cain, Jake Peavy, Craig Krimbrell, Danny Duffy, Trevor Bauer, and Jason Vargas. Got Alex Cobb as an auto pick and just got Tyson Ross.

C- Saltalamacchia
1b- Joey Votto
2b- Howie Kendrick
3b- Evan Langoria
SS- Alcides Escobar
OF- Joc Pederson
OF- Carlos Beltran
OF- Torii Hunter
UTIL- Nolan Arenado (auto picked instead of Wainwright)
Bench- Desmond Jennings
Bench- James Loney


MDS, please tell me I have a chance? And who the farg is Nolan Arenado????    :boom

(Obviously I haven't been following baseball closely the last few seasons).

I have my 10 team keeper league auction tomorrow. Pretty happy with my keepers going into the draft, and their prices...

Kyle Seager  $7
Starling Marte $7
George Springer $6
Kole Calhoun $2
Gregory Polanco $2

Johnny Cueto $17
Alex Wood $11
Alex Cobb $9
Andrew Cashner $7
Michael Wacha $7
Michael Pineda $4
Jose Quintana $6


Got $175 to spend and 13 roster spots to fill. In position to draft Trout if I want to. Right now am willing to go up to $65 to do it, but I'll see how the bidding shakes out.

perhaps you could explain sd's reasons for "disliking" it as well since you seem to be so in tune with other peoples minds

I have nothing to base it on whether that's good or bad (given the amount of players and teams in MLB)....but I admit its a bit much which waters it down a bit which I assume gives me a better chance of winning...if at all possible. Anyways, it's only $20 to get my feet wet, so why not.

thats not bad for 17 teams.....though when you have that many players and such a watered down FA pool, it becomes super random

10-12 is the ideal # for FB

Weird, one day in, and I'm getting a hard-on for baseball I never knew I had.
