    In all due respect, after Blair’s first 3 picks, I kinda wanted to murder him.

    Pujols
    Pedroia
    Ichiro
    …that’s 2 MVP’s, and the most popular baseball player in the world. All rake with ridiculous batting averages, and despite Ichiro’s laughable career slugging%, who cares when he steals 35 bags a year, and you have Pujols slugging like Clark Kent on bole?

    When healthy, Furcal was equally Justice Leaguey last year. Ryan Doumit is the best catcher that no one cared about last year unless you were an unfortunate Pirates fan or if you were me and you had him on your fantasy team. And much to many people’s dismay, Huff, Nady and Milton are still extremely relevant.

    Denard Span had an excellent half of a season after the break. And Rick Ankiel is occassionally spectacular.

    None of those position players need to be anything more than average for their standards with Pujols, Pedroia and Ichiro taking care of all the oooh and ahhh stuff.

    I also love his Starting Rotation:
    Haren
    Harden
    Kazmir
    Young
    …iffy on Duchscherer
    …what is Cristian Guzman doing there??? oops.

    RP’s are weird for me here. I respect the number that KRod put up last year, I don’t respect how he did it. Should your dominate closer really walk that many people? His whip and era weren’t indicative of his league leading saves total. I think he put a few too many times on that shoulder last summer. I think Putz will thieve some saves because of it.

    I disagree with John in one major area… I think Huff, Nady, and Milton all come back down to career averages this year. I also dont think Dustin Pedroia will have nearly the year that he did last year. Franky Rod has experienced an interesting drop in velocity, which makes him much less feared as a high leverage reliever. It also explains his need to nibble and walk batters, but his command has never been that good. He will get a lot opportunities in New York though, which makes him intrinsically makes him valuable.

    I don’t know how this league is set up, but it seems that in comparison to the other teams, this one is lacking batting help. They must intend to make up for it by overpowering the pitching categories. That doesn’t sound like the best game-plan to me.

    Did I say no batting or a lack of batting in comparison to the other teams. There is a big difference there.
