Why do you think this team is a batting average hole? I don't see it. Think this team is solid. You really have figured out exactly what guys I like and go after them every draft, huh?

Dunn, Dukes, Hardy, Soriano, McLouth all have the potential to be, ahem, average in average. I guess there is upside there too, though.

Ha! The Razzball Rankings are never far way when I'm mocking.

What can I say? If you like 'em, it's good enough for me. Yup, I've drunk the Grey Albright Kool-Aid.

I just looked at...

(8) Team Lyon - Miguel Cabrera 1B
(13) Team Lyon - Chase Utley 2B
(28) Team Lyon - Alfonso Soriano LF
(33) Team Lyon - Aramis Ramirez 3B
(48) Team Lyon - Carlos Quentin LF
(53) Team Lyon - Nate McLouth CF
(68) Team Lyon - Joey Votto 1B - CI

...and decided you were fine on average. Yeah, Dunn, Dukes and Hardy could be a problem, but Hardy's a .270 hitter -- that's okay. Dunn will be helped by Cabrera, Aramis and Utley. And Dukes I don't consider when looking at the team. I like him, but anyone from about 200 and later is really just a flier. You took good fliers, but in the end, you shouldn't get too attached to them because you will probably drop 50% of them by May/June anyway.
