Vólquez

Look at my kick ass team! Look at my sorry ass team! Could someone look at my team and tell me what they think is right/wrong?

Vólquez

Postby cockyphoenix » Wed Jun 11, 2008 8:55 am

Asked the 'perts about my pitching at the beginning of the season, and I needed to upgrade. Nobody would bite on Vólquez based on his spring training, so I eventually dropped him and traded away Markakis, my only Oriole, for Brett Myers and K-Rod. I traded K-Rod for Alex Ríos because of his ankles a while back. I suck. At least I was able to pick up Guthrie.

Could be worse - you could have more Orioles on your team.

Do you get bonus points for having Orioles on your team? Look, I am an Orioles fan myself but I don't own any...just the way it worked out. Picking players from your favorite team is one of the oldest mistakes that novice (yes, I said novice) fantasy players make every year.

well I had Markakis and Bedard out there for trade offers a few weeks ago and nobody would bite. I am glad now because Markakis is finally heating up and I still believe Bedard is an ace

To be fair, Millar has been sitting on the ww in one of my leagues, and I've been considering picking him up for a week or 2. He's already belted 11 HR this year. But then I remember that he hasn't had more than 20 since 2003. Combined w/ Murphy's Law, that means he wit hit another for 50 games if I were to pick him up.

It's not like I'm starting Steve Trachsel here. I got Nick Markakis 6th round. I don't overvalue my O's in transactions, just whenever they happen to land on my roster I like it. My affinity for the O's is the least of my worries if I'm opting for Myers over Vólquez and Ríos over K-Rod.

I don't have any Yankees on my team either.
