Re: ESPN vs Yahoo!

I did one ESPN league last year for S's & G's and prefer the yahoo format. To be fair, I started with yahoo. I'm sure there was a learning curve when I started with them too, but I prefer it to my ESPN experience.

When Did the Univ of Alabama start admitting Muppets?

And I assumed Beaker had his PHD in Chemistry at this point already? Why is he back in college? http://mit.zenfs.com/190/2012/02/Patric-Young.jpg From yahoo article: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/ncaab-the-dagger/alabama-fan-face-sign-instant-internet-hit-172350668.html?bcmt=1329418497164-9a26f582-6...

Re: first hitting draft - how's this look?

Lind and Suzuki could be major OBP drains; I'm not convinced Suzuki bounces back. Other than Holliday & Fielder, you don't have anybody you can hang your hat on for a .350 OBP since they're high swing/contact guys. Desmond is your swing man on that; if he performs up to expectation, he'll ease that....

Re: Grade the Rotation

Sorry, misread your question initially based on your blurb vs your title.

I'd give it a B-. Anibal & Gio are solid but Wainwright & Morrow are wildcards for this year. Peacock is a nice end of rotation guy. You're going to need alot of WHIP help.

Re: Rd 4 Pick on Ryan Braun?

I can see the concern, but I feel like he's above that with regards to talent. I'm not making a comparison of talent level here, but Miguel Cabrera did just fine when Victor Martinez & Prince Fielder weren't in his lineup for Detriot prior to 2011. Plus, who knows? Maybe Gamel steps in and does well...

Second Guessing my Asdrubal Keeper

I like Asdrubal. I like him in the 17th round. But should I be liking Logan Morrison in the 18th round more? I'd love to trade Asdrubal before the draft to remove the confusion, but which one do you want for 2012 and beyond? My issues with not keeping him are that I have to draft another SS and feel...

Re: One player would wish would get playing time

Eric Young, Jr for some speed and a good OBP and is still listed at 2B in yahoo

Allen Craig for a good AVG/OBP with decent pop and who's also listed as a 2B

Nolan Reimold; though that may change this year, he really hasn't been given a fair shake by Baltimore since 2009

Re: Rd 4 Pick on Ryan Braun?

Ah, I didn't realize that about the keeper part; sorry I missed it. That said, we are again still talking about players values getting skewed because high end players are still off the board. CarGo/Morse/Bautista/Castro would be going in the top 5 or 6 rounds (ok, Morse is just outside, but he's clo...

Re: Rd 4 Pick on Ryan Braun?

In a keeper league, round values get distorted. I liked razzball's write-up on Brauns inherent value: http://razzball.com/what-is-ryan-braun-worth-in-2012/ But in a keeper where players are being pulled off the board, it moves other players up the board. Plus, keepers pushes the price up on someone ...

Re: I like Astros players this year

I always forget to preface that its a 30 round draft and we start 5 OF (LF/CF/RF/OF/OF). Not that I WANT to be stuck with J.D. Martinez but its nice to know he's so far down there for me when those rounds come about. Agree on Altuve. I'll be targeting a 'safe' 2B pick that's not overpriced but I'd l...
