      Obviously a Yankees fan! I like the majority of your overall starters except for Bobby Abreu, but I'm sure he'll get back to old form so you'll be good there. Phillips is a bit of a question but he can swing a good bat so no major worries there either. One word of advice though: Don't count on anything from Mark Prior! He's found the strike zone again but his fastball is in the LOWER 80's! He may struggle to secure the 5th starting spot and you may want to invest in another starter.

          ^hitting looks good. Pitching is a little weak. Esp relief, IMO. What round did you nab Matsuzaka? I was targeting him in my draft but he went sooner than expected.

          Here's mine: Yahoo public.
          C- Paul Lo Duca
          1B- Albert Pujols
          2B- Julio Lugo
          SS- Miguel Tejada
          3B- Hank Blaylock
          OF- Delmond Young
          OF- Willy Tavaras
          OF- Nick Swisher
          UTL- Barry Bonds
          BEN- Ian Kinsler
          BEN- Adrian Gonzalez
          BEN- Troy Tulowitzki

          SP- Jake Peavy
          SP- Ben Sheets
          RP- Francisco Rodriguez
          RP- Brad Lidge
          P- Joe Borowski
          P- Jeremy Sowers
          P- Felix Hernandez
          BEN- Cliff Lee
          BEN- Roger Clemons

          I plan on Kinsler becoming my starting 2b, and Lugo being the guy that plays for the people who have the day off (2b/ss/3b) or for a team going up against Santana or someone...

          The Rocket will pitch half a year for 20 mil, and he'll be great for the playoffs... I would like to dump Tulowitzki, but I don't think there will be that many takers for trade, nor is there anything worth while in the waivers currently...

          Let's get some activity going in the Cleveland sub-forum!

            This is what I am hoping one of my two teams will look like after trades...

            (20 teams):

            C. Bard
            1B. Konerko
            2B. Cano
            3B. Wright
            SS. Betancourt
            OF. Holliday
            OF. Markakis
            OF. Ethier
            UTL. Helton
            UtL. Jacobs/Scott/Gordon/Betemit

            SP: Bedard, Vazquez, Garland, Garza, Bonser, Escobar
            RP: Soriano, Gonzalez, Shields

            Players traded: Kotchman, Wang, Wagner, Suppan

            I need to trade for someone to get me saves.

                I don't know...even for a 20 team league this team seems weak. Your RP are weak and none are guaranteed to get more than 10 saves. Your hitters are decent. Wright, Cano, Konerko, and Holliday are all solid, but I'm not thrilled with the others. You do have pretty good depth for a 20 team league. I really don't like Betancourt as a starter; there's at least 15 guys better than him at SS. The SPs are pretty good for this big a league, especially when you have a guy like Escobar as a 6th starter.

                I drafted this team last night. 12 teams, 5X5. I had the 5th pick:

                C - Joe Mauer
                1B - Victor Martinez
                2B - Josh Barfield
                3B - Ryan Zimmerman
                SS - Jose Reyes
                CI - Lyle Overbay
                MI - Ian Kinsler
                OF - Grady Sizemore
                OF - Adam Dunn
                OF - Raul Ibanez
                OF - Jeff Francoeur
                Util - Aubrey Huff
                Util - David DeJesus
                BN - Mark DeRosa (2B, 3B, OF), Mike Jacobs (1B), Carlos Quentin (OF)

                SP - Ben Sheets
                SP - Brett Myers
                SP - A.J. Burnett
                SP - Andy Pettitte
                SP - Derek Lowe
                RP - Bobby Jenks
                RP - Takashi Saito
                P - Scott Shields
                BN - Freddy Garcia (SP), Salomon Torres (RP)

                The Mauer / Martinez thing just happened. I drafted Mauer, a whole round went by and nobody took V-Mart, so I took him because he has 1B eligibility. I might look to trade Mauer for an elite RP. Shields might switch with Torres because Torres will be closing but I'm not sure whether I want to give up ERA for saves. If Jenks and Saito are strong, I'll keep Shields there.

                    I'll take KCJ's rep down for that one...

                    Anyways, Belish, I like your pitching, but between Mauer and your bench, hitting may be a bit weak. I think if you can get some trading done, you can def. have a good team.

                          fine... overall, you have a very good team. The thing I don't like most is your bench for the offense. Beltre and Blalock are both good, but they are both 3B and you already have ARod... Granderson is fine.

                            Joe: Getting Vlad with a 2nd round pick is aces, and I really like Hanley Ramirez as a contributor this year, that's also a pick that could reward you times over. It's interesting how the picks in your league turned out.


                            This is the first year I've taken part in fantasy baseball, and the private Yahoo league I'm a part of had our Draft just this afternoon in fact. I landed the 7th overall pick in a 11-team league, and here are the results:

                            Geo's Argonauts: 2007 Draft
                            1  (07)    Alex Rodriguez    3B
                            2  (16)    Carl Crawford     OF
                            3  (29)    Justin Morneau    1B
                            4  (38)    Michael Young     SS
                            5  (51)    Johnny Damon      OF
                            6  (60)    Jeremy Bonderman  SP
                            7  (73)    Gary Sheffield    1B, OF
                            8  (82)    Julio Lugo        2B, 3B, SS
                            9  (95)    Jonathan Papelbon RP
                            10 (104)   Carlos Guillen    SS
                            11 (117)   Dan Haren         SP
                            12 (126)   Chipper Jones     3B
                            13 (139)   Jeff Francoeur    OF
                            14 (148)   Ervin Santana     SP
                            15 (161)   Bob Wickman       RP
                            16 (170)   Michael Cuddyer   1B, OF
                            17 (183)   Freddy Sanchez    2B, 3B, SS
                            18 (192)   Chris Capuano     SP
                            19 (205)   Adam Wainwright   RP
                            20 (214)   Jason Varitek     C
                            21 (227)   Ryan Dempster     RP
                            22 (236)   Jose Contreras    SP
                            23 (249)   Aaron Rowand      OF
                            Waiver wire claim
                            (-) Aaron Rowand     OF
                            (+) James Shields    SP
                            Not to toot my own horn, but I thought I landed some pretty good picks. I'm no fan of ARod, but I didn't hesitate taking him at the 7th overall pick. Getting Carl Crawford in the 2nd round was even better, and Michael Young in the 4th could say the same. Shef could be excellent value as a 7th round pick, especially given the eligibility for the OF position. Julio Lugo is a player I targeted early in the pre-draft process, I think playing in that Red Sox line-up will serve him (and me) well plus he gives me a starter at the thin 2B position. Hooray for Boston naming Papelbon as their closer beforehand. I was fortunate to land some potential steals in the rounds afterwards (Guillen, Chipper, Sanchez, etcetera).

                            I picked up Rowand with the final pick in the draft for OF depth, but decided afterwards that I should use that roster spot to bolster my pitching core with the promising Shields and thusly put in a claim for him as noted.

                            I just discovered that Sanchez may have to go on the DL for the first few days of the season and that Francoeur has been playing ridiculously well in the pre-season, so there's a minus and plus respectively.
