We're getting close enough to the season to have to start planning out for live drafts with pay leagues.
no he is not. he will miss at least 60 games and likely more. he wont hit more than 15 home runs - i guarantee it
You are such a LOSER. Bumping your own post. Did you say $20? Let me guess - funnel the $20 to your paypal account? Go away, you suck at everything.
I always like to have one autopick team to see what Yahoo! gives me before I participate in a live draft, then eventually paying for a Pro League. Every year, I'm astounded by some of the pre-draft rankings Yahoo! gives certain players. This year, I was given 3B Brett Lawrie. That's not the end of the world, but Yahoo! has Lawrie ranked as the 61st best player available - I repeat, SIXTY FIRST.
He's ranked ahead of 3B Chase Headley, who led the NL in RBIs and was an MVP candidate. Just to name off a few non-3B candidates, Lawrie's ranked ahead of Aroldis Chapman, Matt Moore, Kris Medlen, Max Scherzer, Yovani Gallardo, James Shields, Brandon Phillips, Ian Desmond - I could go on naming players who have had established MLB seasons with no reason to not expect those said players won't again have similar or better success.
My point is, Yahoo! "experts" have decided this is Brett Lawrie's year to breakout, and have, WITHOUT REASON, bumped him up in the rankings, and to top it off - HAVE PLACED LAWRIE ON THE CAN'T CUT LIST. There's nothing to indicate Lawrie will have a breakout year, other than the fact the Jays have acquired some pieces around him.
So I have to watch Lawrie put up the same pedestrian numbers he did last year through the first two months of the season (he was readily available on the waiver wire months into the season last year) before Yahoo! finally determines "HEY, MAYBE OUR EXPERTS AREN'T REALLY EXPERTS" and remove Lawrie from the Can't Cut List.
You can't come up with an argument to challenge me on this. If you can, I will trade you Lawrie.
What a stupid thing to say about Headley. Hasn't proven he's elite yet? Lawrie sure as hell hasn't. And he didn't have half the year Headly did in 2012.

I don't know how Yahoo comes up with these rankings across all sports, but some are absolutely ridiculous. I guess the "experts" leverage there "expertise" and just assume players will have breakout seasons. Brett Lawrie ranked ahead of Chase Headley and Pablo Sandovol? #$%$
Didn't take Yahoo! long to have scoreboard issues. I have been notified by Yahoo! that its server was hacked into and that there is an irreversible virus that has infected the fantasy football software. No touchdowns will count moving forward.
Yahoo sent out a system-wide email this morning. It said Yahoo's Fantasy Baseball server was hacked into and as a result, Yahoo is suspending Fantasy Baseball indefinitely. According to the email, worst-case scenario is Fantasy Baseball may not be repaired before the season ends. Fantasy Baseball will likely be down throughout the weekend no matter what.
