Re: ESPN vs Yahoo!

I'm doing my first ESPN league (via Razzball of course) this year and, after 10 years of Yahoo Fantasy Baseball, it's going to take some getting used to. I don't really care about the graphics and pictures, I care about usability and so far Yahoo is winning for me - but it's too early for me to mak...

Re: Pitching Run

I'm not here to gripe about greys rankings --I'm still visiting the site and trust his insights on players by and large -- I'm here to ask for strategy help. This year I'm paying closer attention to whip in his predictions then choosing based on k rate. But the question of who to pick when his rank...

Re: Pitching Run

JoeC I reread what I quoted from you and then recognize those were pitchers I drafted last year based on greys recommendations. What went wrong? Well, Grey is not infallible, as he'll be the first to admit. Luck always plays a role in fantasy baseball. No one can predict who might get injured and w...

Re: Pitching Run

I also could end up with a Liriano, Scherzer, DHudson, Brett Anderson, Chacin rotation. Well, if you have Liriano on your pitching staff, you have no one to blame but yourself! Anderson should be low on your ranking list as well, as it's unclear when he'll return exactly. Scherzer, Daniel Hudson an...

Re: 2012 breakouts

Last year I dominated the regular season with drafting Kemp and Justin Upton in the 5th and 6th round. CBS does not have their ADP up for h2h 2012 yet, so I can not really compare it to the Mustache's list. Who can I get in Rounds 4-6 that has a chance to top 10. Bruce is the only one I can think o...

Re: Shortstop

snip Ricky Romero (something about this guy feels like he's going to match last year or get better) Shandler has his doubts. Credit's his 2011 to a favorable hit percentage and strand rate out-of-line with his career norms. He predicts a 3.56 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. And only 154 Ks. Our fearless leader ...

Re: Pitching Run

What to do when league goes pitching heavy early? You can only draft once every 12 picks and then tim Hudson is best available in 5th. Did it really matter if you've got only 4 solid-on-paper offensive players? And what if it's an 8x8 league! What are you complaining about? This sounds like a plan ...

Re: Please! Some input on my slow draft team

BJ upton was gone about 10 picks before. I hated all the other outfielders in that spot. We took Jones too early, but it doesn't matter now. I don't really see a difference in numbers between him and Matt Holliday, except for about 20 points in average, but who can predict that. After the first 5 p...

Re: Shortstop

So my opinion is there is a bigger gap between the haves and the have nots at 3B. I'd be more inclined to go Longo or Bautista (prefer Bautista for the dual eligibility, of course) in the first round. There's alot of high confidence in Beltre/Zimmerman/Lawrie/Wright that I just don't have for their...

Re: 3B getting better?

Just to wrap this topic up from my perspective, I went back and took a new look at my projections not only for Beltre, but also for Wright and Zimmerman. As I said, I found that I was unfairly penalizing Wright and Zimm for having injuries over the past few seasons, but not applying that same penalt...
