It's finally done! 12-team 5 x 5 Roto at CBS. 5 x OF, CI, MI, 9 x P, 6 x Bench, 1 x Minor Leaguer. Excuses added below as appropriate. I've since picked up Massett to round out my bench. I kept track against the "Winning It" numbers all the way along and it stacks up pretty well. Fire away...
9 Cabrera, Miguel (1B DET)
16 Wright, David (3B NYM)
33 Granderson, Curtis (OF NYY)
40 Reyes, Jose B. (SS NYM) - Someone had to. The good news on the thyroid came shortly afterwards.
57 Lester, Jon (P BOS)
64 Jones, Adam (OF BAL)
81 Jimenez, Ubaldo (P COL)
88 Ibanez, Raul (OF PHI)
105 Uggla, Dan (2B FLA) - Not a Razzball favourite, but wanted to stave off a power shortage and felt I had the AVE to sustain him. Decent value too.
112 Bell, Heath (P SD)
129 Baker, Scott (P MIN)
136 Beltran, Carlos (OF NYM) - Worth the risk at this point.
153 Damon, Johnny (OF DET) - Boring, but balanced. Good value too.
160 Aardsma, David (P SEA)
177 Buchholz, Clay (P BOS) - Was autopicked. Maybe not the best guy from this tier, but good enough hopefully.
184 Gonzalez, Mike (P BAL)
201 Reimold, Nolan (OF BAL) - Picked him before this platooning nonsense broke. Ah well.
208 Napoli, Mike (C ANA) Punt!
225 Santana, Ervin (P ANA) - Yet another AL pitcher, but not a bad 5th starter.
232 Desmond, Ian (SS WAS) - For the MI slot. Teacher's Pet strikes again!
249 Lyon, Brandon (P HOU) - Keeping it in the family
256 Kennedy, Ian (P ARI)
273 Headley, Chase (OF SD) - Don't normally punt CI this far, but not a bad option this late.
280 Maybin, Cameron (OF FLA) - Reimold insurance. Not like for like obviously, but worth the flier here.
297 Wuertz, Michael (P OAK)
304 Alvarez, Pedro (3B PIT) - My minor leaguer
321 Sanchez, Gaby (1B FLA) Sh*t! I forgot! Beltran will start the season on the DL! Wait - I can move Headley to OF, but I'll need another CI. Oh. Where did everybody go?
328 Adams, Mike M. (P SD) - Money. Even handier if Bell gets traded.
Besides the Headley/Sanchez massacre, which hopefully plays out in our favor, the hitting looks fine. I don't mind the Ibanez and Uggla picks here, you were stacking up on guys you can count on, I can understand that. Probably should've been a post at some point, but it's a lot better to do that than reach for sleepers and have no one you can count on as I see some teams have. Really solid pitchign too. I think you did real well, Steve. Nice team.
