Since most of us probably play fantasy baseball, I figure a thread would be good. How's your team looking? I'm in a new 10-team league at work and drafted tonight.

Love my team. Think its really balanced. The only thing I may lack in is HR's, but I like my team for batting average, SB's and RBI's.
What round did Mauer go in? He was laaaate in my league
I do my draft next week. I'll be coming back for advice. Don't let me down tBBers.
Huddles are for rookies.
Cano at 2? My buddy had Tulowitzki fall to him in the last pick of the first round and then he picked up Cano in the first spot of the second round.
I use Yahoo and pitching is worth a lot of points, and also you're only allowed so many innings to pitch. Closers are very crucial because they bring in a lot of points with only using up 1 inning.

I think your team sucks and I'm going to destroy you in Week 1 personally but I guess they look ok...
University of Oklahoma: B.S. Aerospace Engineering '10, M.S. Mechanical Engineering '12
I like your outfield a lot. Michael Bourn is undervalued by a lot of people.
happy about my team except for the fact that i drafted Madsen and lost him a couple of days later (magnified by the fact that i had similar closer issues last year and just had to tank the saves dept. I had to pick up Aroldis Chapman hoping he beats out Marshall for the closer role since he was already taken
i drafted with tons of position options so most of my team is versatile and i wont have to have spots empty on any day
I'm also a second year competitor in a league that has been going for some time now and is a 5 keeper league. of course, when i entered the league i inherited the worst team (otherwise the guys wouldnt have quit of course) so, ive been having to work my way up even though tons of good guys are gone. So, i drafted pitcher heavy as you never can really tell who of the middle to bottom tier guys are going to excel so i wrapped some of them up.
ROTO league btw

I drafted Cano #1 overall. My strategy is to pick up a rare position in the first round. Usually catcher or 2nd baseman. Back when Mauer was ridiculous, I used to get him. This year the catchers are a little underwhleming so I went Cano. Strategy nearly always pays off as I've won all but 1 league I've ever been in.
Most people scoop up OF or 1B first. There's so many good ones out there I wait on them. Your OF or 1B won't win a league. Closers, 2nd base, and catcher do.
Just did an auction draft on Sunday in a 16 team pay league. Five and a half hours of drafting. We went very pitching heavy as well as speed. As constructed now, it would take a herculean effort to beat us in any pitching category.
Lincecum, Price, Grienke, Hamels, Beachy, Cueto, Thornton, Myers, Jordan Weldan, Mike Adams, Sergio Romo is just unfair in a 16-team league.
Crawford, Bourne, Austin Jackson will win us SBs every week and runs most weeks. Our infield leaves some to be desired, but sometimes you have to go outside the box in pay leagues.
I say us, because it's co-managed by myself and a friend.

Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
My outfield is still pretty stacked. Corey Hart will provide good numbers, Nyjer Morgan will give great BA, Mike Carp and Lucas Duda will provide plenty of power.
My pitching is going to dominate.
Can't argue with that.
I like your hitters besides Ackley...pitching staff is real top heavy
I think Votto is an excellent 1B, Reynolds is solid at 3B, Gordon is a decent SS, Holliday makes me curious with Pujols now gone, Cuddyer is a really good hitter and Matt Joyce slipped off a little bit last year but he's a good OF
big fan of Kershaw and Johnson...I think Haren is still solid but I don't think as highly of him anymore
I think its a good not great team...your team in our league is better but you have some solid talent
Solid team. Pomeranz is going to be a stud, but Col is going to closely monitor his innings. Bench may need some work. Pagan is having a horrible spring and Carp has a huge hole in his swing. Liriano and Cahill are nice late round pick ups if they can return to form.
Same problem he had in the minors when still with the Indians.
This is my Yahoo team. It's a 10 team roto. Pretty challenging. We score crazy stuff like holds and fielding %.
I have my CBS sportsline league draft this Sunday. It's a head to head 12 team keeper league.
1B - Hosmer
2B - Espinosa
3B - Lawrie
SS - Hardy
LF- Nelson Cruz
CF - Kemp
RF - Francour
OF - Melky Cabrera
Util - Coco Crisp
Bench - Belt, Carp
SP- Kershaw, King Felix, Gallardo, Masterson, Fister, Carpenter
RP - Heath Bell, Andrew Bailey, Broxton, K-Rod, Mike Adams, Vinnie Pestano. (drafted Madson before his injury news...)
I followed him closely when he was still in the Indians system, but haven't much since he's been traded.
I'm part of a 10 teamer in ESPN.
We haven't had our draft yet.
My college team did one last year and i won it all so i'm hoping i can get a lot of the same guys.
Just general observations...
Love Votto, Cuddyer Cozart, Kershaw, Haren, Bumgarner
Hate Reynolds, Joyce
Dee Gordon has a ton of potential.
Second: Your pitching has a boom or bust potential. Don't care for Ian Kennedy, but Liriano is a great buy-low candidate and I'm not overly sure what you have in Pineda yet.
Bill James loves Goldschmidt.
I have a couple up the sleeve, but I don't want to see them disappear in the BB league ....
This is my team in a 12 team head to head league.
C - Napoli, Mike
1B - Sanchez, Gaby
2B - Uggla, Dan
3B - Zimmerman, Ryan
SS - Tulowitzki, Troy
OF - Boesch, Brennan
OF - Bourn, Michael
OF - Hamilton, Josh
OF - Maybin, Cameron
U - Loney, James
DH - Mayberry, John
Bench - Craig, Allen
Bench - Howard, Ryan
Bench - Quentin, Carlos
Carp went 0-4. FML. He better hit above .250 this series.
you're going to be wanting to give him away this year...he's going to have another year of a high ERA/high WHIP and low wins...he'll be good on K's but I don't think much of Liriano
2010 was his peak season IMO
Coco Crisp and Jesus Montero combined for............ 0-9. Awesome
