    Format: 12-Team H2H, Yahoo! Standard format
    Categories: 5x5 Standard

    Pre-Draft Overview: It was my first time trying a pitching-before-batting strategy in the 6 years that I've done fantasy baseball. Got stuck in the nine hole.

    1B: Prince Fielder (RD1)
    2B: Casey McGahee (RD20)
    3B: Chipper Jones (RD15)

    P: Heath Bell (RD11)

    P: Randy Wells (RD14)

    BN: Jair Jurrjens (RD12)
    BN: Garrett Jones (RD19)
    BN: Bengie Molina (RD13)
    BN: Kevin Kouzmanoff (RD22)
    BN: Clint Barmes (RD23)

    Post-Draft Overview:
    Was very happy with my pitching, minus the fact that I would have preferred drafting another SP instead of wasting a pick on Bengie Molina due to a brain fart.

    Struggled to get a 2B and 3B. Was out of position on many of the top-tier in these categories. However, happy I at least got Kouz and Barmes (Decent sleepers, IMO). I always view AJ Pierzynski as underrated as well and I've used him many times on winning fantasy teams.

    Finally, I feel very happy with my outfield and SB/R potential. Very disappointed though in my projected HR/RBI output.

    Your thoughts? Out of 10? I struggle to give myself a 7.5, but I'm hoping the pitching will set me apart (minus the competitors who use constant pitching adds/drops to win).
