Thanks Grey for doing what you do. In years passed, Ive had more time and taken your preseason rankings and added my highly informed (not) adjustments with good but not great results. This year I loaded your draft list, and using your draft strategy from years passed, drafted whoever was at the top of your list. I crushed the league in offense the first month and have been in first place all but 1 week.
That said the match-ups have been tougher of late mostly because of my pitching.
Here are my stat rankings through the first half.....
1st: R, H, E, AVG
2nd: HR, RBI, SLG
4th: SB, BB
7th: IP, BB
8th: L, H
11th: HR, ERA
A couple things to know about this league....there is a move limit of 35 for the season (20 left) and although trades occur they are infrequent and often vetoed by the league owners for shits and giggles.
I normally only carry one bench bat and plan to drop Martin but have held onto Rendon as an insurance policy for Tulo (Rendon to 2nd, Zobrist to SS). I also know you think now is a good time to shop Choo which I will try to do.
The Arms that are available look like:
