I think I might love him more than my girlfriend, but not as much as my dog.

I'm with you, brother. Drafted him on all three of my roto teams at 7, 7 and 8 and couldn't be happier...

I unbelievably got him round three of my H2H...

OK, I lied. It was round four. I just didn't want you to think my league-mates were morons. They are, however, SP and "position scarcity" obsessed so I was able to cherry pick Sizemore-Kemp-J. Upton 3-4-5.

I've had Kemp the past 3 years and I am so sad that he'll have to go back into the draft next year. Even greater satisfaction as a Dodger fan!

You took Sizemore in the 3rd over Kemp and Upton????

I know it looks like ridiculous strategy, but I wanted two of those three and gambled that the bigger "name" Sizemore would be the first to go down. So I took him hoping for either Kemp and Upton on the turn. Kemp was there, and then pitchers continued to fly off the board until it was J Ups in round five. IF I posted our draft it wouldn't look quite so absurd except for a few nutty early picks (Zobrist, Dunn, and Wieters being the big reaches). Likewise the other owners can't be complete mo-rans cuz my record is 1-1 and I'm sitting 7th in total points. Each league has its quirks, s'pose.

Yeah, those are some quirks. That's crazy. I opened up with Kemp at 8 and Upton at 21 in my 14-team commish league (6x6 roto with OPS and K/BB) and was happy as hell. Had I gone for Sizemore first, I would have missed out on Kemp and maybe Upton, too.
