    Thanks. I do that already. I am wondering if it is better to pick a pitcher early or in the middle of the ranking. Do many pick position players first or pitchers. It seems to me that it is harder to get pitchers later in the season than it is position players. Maybe I am on the right track with the "put down what you want, and figure the rest out later" mentality. Just thought there may be a strategy that I am missing.

    I have been playing this game since 07. I don't know anyone that plays so I have been learning on my own as I go. I do ok and have fun. The one thing that has eluded me is how to go about picking my team. Mainly who to pick first, second, etc. I play roto, public, 12 team leagues. I don't really have the time to spend in front of the computer doing a draft so I do the auto pick. That pretty much negates how I pick because the system will do it for me, but I would like to have a game plan going in anyway.

    How do you pick what position and who to pick first, second, etc.?

    Thank you for any advise.

  • Hi everyone. I am new to the forum and have some questions.
    First of all I have been playing Fantasy Baseball since 07. I don't know anyone that plays this. Most of my friends, people I know, don't care for baseball anyway. So I have been basically teaching myself this game. I have gone to websites to look for answers to different questions but sometimes that can be a little overwhelming. I always play in a 12 team roto league in Yahoo fantasy baseball. I don't have the time to sit through a draft, so I opt for the autopick option when I set my team. I usually do two teams a year.
    Some of the areas that I have trouble with are: trades, and when to start REALLY paying attention to the team (after the all star break?).
    Trades: What is the best way to know that I am putting out a fair offer? I don't do many but when I do I try to see what the other person needs as well as what I want/need. When do you start trying to trade? After the season starts when you start to see who is doing what? Do you start right when you get your team (how do you know if they are not worthy of your team or not)?
    I typically let my team ride for a few weeks or a month and then start to figure out who can go and who can stay.
    Is there a place on line that explains stuff like this in an easy to understand format?
    Sorry for the long post, but thank you for any info.
