just wanted to take time while on vacation and thank you for all your help and hard work in giving us this site. (i am typing this from a library in ocean city, md lol) had to get my razzball fix so here i am at the beach on vacation and in a library. lol
anyway, thanks to you and your help i finished first in my league by 13 games last year. although i lost in the finals of the playoffs as bj upton and quentin and sheets all decided that in the finals would be a good time to get hurt and some others were periodically rested as their real life teams were good to go. oh well.
this year i am in first by 3.5 as of now and i use only your ratings and advice on putting my team together. thanks.
i enjoy the humor very much and yesterday (again in the library) i busted out laughing out loud when envisioning alexi ramirez swinging at the pitch that beaned him as you alluded to in your writeup. very funny. the people around me either gawked or gazed or averted their looks as i couldn't help but laugh. funny stuff.
again thanks and one question. i have to bench one and can't decide. c v mart lb votto 2b hudson ss h. ramirez 3b branyan of lee dunn j. upton utl sandoval that leaves nelson cruz on the bench but he seems to be heating up again soooooooooo whaddya think? i could put v mart on the bench as he seems to be struggling right now and put sandoval at catcher and cruz at utility???
thoughts? thanks mke
also (sorry another question) i have the cubs a. ramirez coming off the d.l. and when activated one of the above must also be cut???? now that is tough one for me. i really can't cut a pitcher as i also have downs on the d.l. and when he comes off faser is a gonner leaving me with joba, shields, felix hern. gallardo, wainwright, carpneter, kershaw, bell, frankie fransic, franklin and the above mentioned downs. hmmmmm help
Thanks for the kind words. Sure, bench V-Mart for now, but that's not a long term solution.
re: Aramis -- Maybe package Carp and Francisco for a better closer? Since you're a little weak in closers. Maybe package those two for one decent starter? Though your starters are pretty decent already.
