Why do I keep see it happening in every draft?!?

Do folks forget that Ellsbury was being benched for Coco Freaking Crisp in the playoffs?

Ha! Nice rant. Wait, until you see tomorrow's post. It's appropriate.

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.

It's probably a home team hard on. Not sure if there's a glossary term for that, but I can't believe it either. I can understand Pedroia in the 4th round MAYBE, but I just don't think he has the track record of Uggla or Utley to make this possible.

If you're building your team around speed and you already have an adequate power base to your team, then drafting someone like Ellsburry in the 8th-9th is okay with me. .280/50 and 100 runs is pretty good... basically Ichiro without the high average.

Pedroner? Admittedly, this sounds like something a priest gets around altar boys.

Ellsboner? Too similar to the bro-ner, an unintentionally male-induced excitement.

Red Sox National? a al Hebrew National

For someone who watches Pedroia every game, do NOT underestimate Little D. He will crush again this year. Mark my words. He is about as consistent as they come when you watch him play day in and day out he is a phenomenal player. I believe he will put up similar #'s again this year.

Yeah, and remember what DL Drew said about him closing his eyes and swinging like a little leaguer on every cut? It's only a matter of time before he regresses.
