I wouldn't take Kinsler and Rollins on the same team, no. Do you know what place you're drafting at?

BTW, I don't mean living room or bedroom.

Probably locked in the bedroom, as it happens. That way my wife and kids can't disturb my deep concentration.

No - don't know what spot. It gets 'randomized' about 30 mins before kickoff.

It all depends how it goes, of course, but I'm looking pretty hard at Carlos Lee in the 2nd. Yahoo has him ranked at 26, so I like my chances of getting him wherever I am.

@Steve

"Where do you take Peavy in a 12-teamer?. Still wait for the 4th or can you justify the end of the 3rd? Doubt he falls there though. Failing that, is it a Beckett/Lackey/Shields type in the 6th or perhaps Bills in the 7th/8th? Then I'd plan to pick off the usual suspects from there..."

I love Peaves......I f-ing LOVE him. That said....I'd NEVER draft him in the 3rd. As a matter of fact....he makes me all scary, injury-wise. Here's why (with video analysis):

Yeah - by the 3rd, I mean the very end of the 3rd, maybe the last couple of picks in that round.

If he's there in the 4th, I'm all over him like chrome on a towbar.

7. All of which means, that I'm not drafting any hitters for my bench. Drove myself crazy last year trying to decide who to sit/start. The MRs are thus the revolving doors when I need to fill holes on short-schedule days or if I need steals or whatever in a given week.
We got 8 bench spots in this league. I'm looking to use most of 'em for starters to avoid streaming - to start with, anyway.

Gotta be room there for a hitter or two, no? I'm worried about off-days etc

Or is my original thought above the better way to go?
