    • I pretty much went with the strategy that won me baseball a couple years ago. Dominate the pitching and hope for some hitting. You guys dont want to know who i drafted in my 1st 2 rounds lol. I have a decent shot at at a hope to make the playoffs if i keep this squad. I always trade during a season. makes it interesting. Im confident enough in my pitching ill win some matchups and lose some. And my girlfriend made me draft plouffe because we are from rochester ny(home of the Twins farm club) and we saw him play here a bunch of times. Good Luck to you all in this upcoming season.

    • Great Piching, horrible hitting...if you're going head to head you might be looking at a lot of 4 - 5 losses or 4-6

      I might try sending one of those SP for some average or steals

    • This could be the Worst Team BA by an owner if played out through the entire season...You're looking at .240? when competitive teams bat .275 or higher. So to catch up in OPS or OB that's a lot of walks needed. You have zero chance at winning SBs. And considering your bats are so bad, I can't believe you finished with a Strasburg,Cain,Dickey top 3 in pitching. They are good but after them you're toast with Lynn,Hughes,Griffin,Vargas,Jackson, and Cobb. As a poster below me put it in a 16 or more team League you're staff can carry you and you're hoping HRs/RBIs in bats to win a matchup. In a 12 team League much less 10 you pretty much drafted every player 2rounds above where they should have gone!

    • Decent team for an 18 team league or higher. Anything less you have a good chance at last place. I don't even know who you took in the 1st or 2nd round?

    • Your girlfriend tells you who you have to draft for your fantasy team?

    • Took pitching too early and definitely not winning any hitting titles. Maybe try to move a SP for a 3B or SS.
