Re: NFBC

You have to know they need to pay salaries, web fees and the like. The site is very well run, but I would like more player information to be available (minor quibble, we do have Razzball to keep us informed). I am involved with a 50 round 15 team league that we began at First Pitch Arizona, and the ...

Re: Which one do I take?

If it was my team, I'd go Lee, Greinke, Felix and then look for offense. 3B is shallow this season and your OF worries me, so I might go Wright or Holliday after Lee and Greinke. Not likely you would get all three of your top choices, but then Uggla might be a good value after two SPs.

Re: Draft Strategy (Pitching)

In a 10 team league, I'd wait until the 8-10th round before drafting a pitcher. There are a buttload of SP out there in a 10 team league that will be available in those rounds. LIMA rule is going to be the best draft strategy this year. Go by this rule and you'll win your league. Agree entirely. I ...

Re: Strategy Question II

I too agree that BA is generally predictable, absent an abnormal season. That said, I always draft for power and speed first, then power. Speed and BA come into the MLB much moreso than power. Just realize guys like Beltre are rare and thus go high while low average sluggers are usually there for th...

Re: RazzMock #1

I know that my (Planet 10-pick 14) OF is pretty shabby, but I do like my IF. AVG will be a bit of a problem, but the power should be there, and I always go for power over speed. In a 30 round draft, however, a balanced roster would be optimal; in a 30 round draft, an optimal balanced roster is nearl...

Re: Huge Trade Advice

I think relying on Freeman and Dalton puts you at a huge disadvantage in your QB slot. McCoy may be the best RB in the league right now, but I know Andre and Nicks will be huge once both are healthy. I could endorse this trade, if you are playing for both this year and next, if you are near the top ...

Re: trade Gore for Jennings

Jennings is a definite upgrade over Little, but Gore is a beast (I don't buy the injury risk tag put on him). Best is still not cleared from his concussion issues, but McGahee and Murray should carry you if you only start 2 RBs. Starting 3 and you will be worse off.

Re: Stevie Johnson

How many WRs do you need to start? And could you get Ford instead of Wayne? I know that means having to rely on Palmer and Ford, but Wayne has little value with the Indy QB situation as it is, or getting worse with Orlovsky taking over for Painter. At this point I think you can rely on Eli to keep p...

Get Dez for McGahee

Trade question. 12 team PPR with standard scoring. I get Dez Bryant for Willis McGahee. My WRs are Fitzgerald, Denarius Moore, Mike Williams (TB), Benn and if waivers go through, Vincent Brown. RBs are Fred Jackson, Sproles, Deangelo, Best, Delone Carter and Jacquizz. We start 2 RBs and 3 WRs. And I...

Looking for owners

I know this doesn't really belong here, but there doesn't seem to be a precise area to solicit league owners, so... I have two leagues with openings on Yahoo. No fees, just bragging rights involved. Both leagues feature IDP and keepers, and are auction format. First draft ( Buckaroo's Ballers 08 ) i...
