RCL Original Recipe Division Standings Update #7

Postby Steve » Wed Sep 09, 2009 7:58 pm

There should have been far more of these, so many apologies for that. Anyway, as of a few minutes ago, it's tight at the top. Doc has come back to the field and BSA has come pretty much out of nowhere to be a contender. Me? I'm the kid standing outside with his nose pressed up against the window.

Wow, look at BSA making a run. You guys have a battle.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Wow, not even sure how you went from the one team to the other, but pretty impressive switch.

Trades -
Hippo I got Halladay, Utley, Hamilton for Alexei Ramirez, Reynolds, and KRod in different trade combos
Iowa I got Teixeira

Everything else was add/drops in FA.

Zigging a little before my Kiwi friend Zagged from Razzball to the FA pool.

Then within the last month only scanning for players rocking categories I need within last 15 days.

I also got pissed at the beginning of the year when you lumped my draft team with MJ's Autodraft. Rather than being miserable I got busy.

Thank you professor!

As I told a paraprofessional that worked for me in my classroom when things weren't going well.

You can get pissed and quit or pissed and motivated.
Either way after the draft I had and then the first two months of merde I am psyched to be in the top 4.

Once again I think the league was a success, people had fun, and we only lost one - Anyone ever hear from Salty F. Biscuits?

This is a fun little experiment
25 - C A.J. Pierzynski - Wieters fill in
12 - 1B Pablo Sandoval - Versatility? Plus his nick name is Kung Fu panda, I'll be ridin' this Panda Express to championship town. Maybe. Probably not.
18 - 2B Felipe Lopez - Last time he was in a bandbox he jacked 20+
04 - 3B Chipper Jones - Average
01 - SS Jimmy Rollins - First rd? Yikes.
20 - MI Emilio Bonifacio - Sagnof
06 - CI Chris Davis - Bill James projections please
03 - OF Jason Bay - From America's hat
07 - OF Hunter Pence - Hunter Pence none the richer
08 - OF Jay Bruce - Homer(s) pick
09 - OF Chris Young - 30/30 maybe?
16 - OF Delmon Young - Convert bat throwing power to ball hitting power please
19 - UT Casey Kotchman - I took the under on 16 HRs in a bet with a friend last year, I won. Brett Myers hits harder, ask his girlfriend.
14 - BN Matt Wieters - Mauer with power

02 - SP Tim Lincecum - Ace
10 - SP Edinson Volquez - Rolls hard
13 - SP Clayton Kershaw - Sounds like a country music singer
14 - SP Justin Verlander - Enrollment in the Justin Verlander school for kids who can't pitch good and want to learn to do other stuff good too.
17 - SP Gavin Floyd - Saw him in spring training, looked solid vs. Dodgers
21 - SP Anthony Reyes - Best dressed.
05 - RP Jonathan Papelbon - Papelboner
11 - RP Jose Valverde - Salsa
23 - RP Dan Wheeler - Mr. B with save opps?
22 - BN Kelvim Escobar - DL stashee with upside
24 - BN Ian Snell - His pitching snells bad, potential Cliff Lee though?


My team now:
C Wieters, Barajas - The fact that I still have 2 Cs explains a lot
1B - Chris Davis - Funny story, I traded him away, and now he's back on my team!
2B - Aaron Hill - Free Agent pick up of the season for my team, I don't want to imagine how bad I'd be without him
3B - Pablo Sandoval - Man I wish he would have C eligibility, but he's been pretty good too me anyhow
SS - Alex Gonzalez - Traded Jimmy early, and have been playin hot cross bats ever since
CI - Chone Figgins - Trade acquisition to bolster steals and avg
MI - David Eckstein - yuck, see SS
OF - Adam Dunn - trade acq.
OF - Michael Bourn - trade acq.
OF - Shane Victorino - trade acq.
OF - Dread Pirate - trade acq.
OF - Jonny Gomes - was Cody Ross for a large part of the Season
UT - Rajai Davis - sagnof
BN - Krispie Young - he's back on my team after an extended hiatus

SP - Justin Verlander - Cy Young candidate booyah
SP - Edwin Jackson - liked him pre-draft, no one drafted him so I picked him up, been good since
SP - Scott Kazmir - trade acq.
RP - Papelboner - kind a meh season for him
RP - Valverde - been pretty good since injury
RP - Trevor Hoffman - trade acq.
RP - Bobby Jenks - trade acq.
Curretly Streaming: Tim Hudson, Scott Feldman, Joel Pineiro - Tyring to make some late season gains in Ws.

Overall, mostly shit. Damn autodraft for the first 2 picks royally F'd me in A. I got to 4th at one point and have been bouncing between 6th and 8th since. I've never played so hard in a non-keeper to finish this poorly, but it has definitely been fun! Can't wait for next year.

Haha yeah, I'd ask for a refund, but I'm not sure I want my players back!
