I'd go with the Lake Count Captains for their veteran leadership. Also, it is Joba not Jona...

Actually, his real name is God, but he prefers Joba while here on earth.

I like my team. It may not have the same sort of leadership as BT's, but every player is in the 25-30 range, which is pretty much the prime of their careers.

Plus, I have four elite starters in Peavy, Hamels, Zambrano, and King Felix.

Most of my guys are in late 20s and early 30s which is where they tend to pick.

And aside from Bailey, Upton, and Chamberlain, most of these guys have good big league experience.

Plus I got the best hitter in baseball, so that's cool too. But you're team is real good too.

Yep, it will be a good vote. That is, unless you start to adopt my strategy of bribery. http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/forum/images/icons/icon12.gif

I've already paid off 2/3 of the state of Wyoming to vote for me. They should be getting on soon, unfortunately it's only 2 votes.

You made the fatal mistake of believing that people in Wyoming have internet access.

I, however, have outsourced my voting needs for 15% of the cost for an American voting scam.

Curve all the way

Can you explain why? Normally I wouldn't ask but I personally think it's damn close and we both went different directions with it, so I'd like to know why.

I know my lineup isn't as sexy name-wise as BT's, but I was trying to draft the best team for 2012 alone.

I think everyone was trying to do that ;).

I just think your team is unproven, if your guys turn out the way people expect them too, it's damn good but we don't know if it will.

True. But how much does veteran leadership come into play in a five-game series as opposed to a 162-game season?

It's not just leadership, they're damn good players too. I tried to go with proven guys.

But this is gonna come down to the wire.
