The one thing you did that was wrong, though, was drafting a bunch of players from 1 team. No matter how good they are, that's not usually a good thing to do in fantasy.

Usually, no, but Lahi did well in football with the Pats' recieving core. I'm using a lot of Boston either as collateral for moves or as good utility players (ie Ellsbury's potential for stealing bases).

Well, I'm extremely disappointed in the fact that I ended up with 5 1st basemen and 1 second baseman.

Anybody need outfielders? I only have 7 of them, all good ones too.

I've got Carl Crawford, Torii Hunter*, Curtis Granderson*, Adam Dunn*, Andruw Jones, Alex Rios and Jesus Johnny Damon*.

* - Not available for trading.

Pitching, Abu. I need pitching, not hitting.

Alright then.

And Ace's team is more ridiculous than I thought. All his batters have averages of like, .350, and all his pitchers have ERA's of like, 1.50.

What the crap? They have the weirdest start ever... I know there are always two teams that start out in Japan and two always start the season early, but seriously... the 25th? And then on the 28th, they go back to spring training to play the DODGERS in LA? Then the next day, they play them at MEMORIAL COLISEUM (last time they played there in 1959, it had a left-field fence at 251' away... and I haven't heard that they've changed it since...)??!?!

Baseball schedules get weirder and weirder every year (but it's fine with me)...

That's pretty sweet. He's coming home. I don't like that Beckett is out, though...

BTW for fantasy, I think I have two pitchers from Cleveland. Forgot Fausto was on their team. I'd be willing to trade him if someone can offer me some equal pitching.

EDIT: Actually that might be a stupid idea, nvm.

Wow, what a chain of events that just happened at the Red Sox-Blue Jays game. It was delayed an hour, and Daisuke, who was supposed to start against Toronto, is pitching in a Minor League game.

Wow.

You go, boy. He's definitely in for a breakout year and I smell something special for him.

I was just joking. What I was getting at is that I'm glad to see a girl talking baseball and actually unerstanding what she's saying.

I've been a Phillies fan for a long long time. I also enjoy watching the BoSox from time to time.
Baseball = love. :)

Did anyone else watch their season opener this morning? My AP government is a big baseball fan, so we turned it on for some of the 9th and 10th innings.

It was 6 eastern time, 3 Pacific.

Needless to say, I didn't watch.

Seattle Mariners 2008 AL West Champs(They have a very, very good shot at it).

You have no shot. The Padres, D-Backs and Rockies are all bringing the same teams back and LA has improved. The Giants have gotten worse. You will finish stone dead last in your division.

I love it...his grand prize for being the game MVP is 1,000,000 yen, which compared to our lame inflation makes that a mere $10,000 here.
