Ha ha yeah I just really wanted him. Not that ridiculous, Cabrera went for 65 and Pujols like 63. I only overpaid by a little.

Auction leagues are tough to evaluate because you didn't see the bidding prices yourself, but man, that's a shitty OF.

I hate when people drastically overvalue their own players. I asked a guy in my league what he wanted for Gallardo and he replied with an offer of Carlos Santana and Desmond Jennings for Gallardo

I'm in several leagues this year. My most recent one was last night, and I have one today as well.

My biggest issue is that I tend to overvalue young players almost every season. Anyone else find themselves doing this?

Last year, I drafted Jason Heyward thinking he was going to win the MVP. That didn't turn out too well.

Ouch.

That being said, as far as post-hype sleepers go, he isn't a bad pick this year.

Yeah, last year I had a choice between Jason Heyward and Matt Kemp. It seemed like I made the right choice with Heyward based on their 2010 totals. That shit backfired so quickly. Ugh.

Not a fan of your outfield, but, other than that, doesnt seem all that bad. A few risks in Nathan and J.Johnson that could backfire, though.

I'll post mine from yesterday, and you guys can give me some opinions

May shift some of my bench to a starting spot within a day or so (Looking at putting Lorenzo Cain instead of Coco? Or do you guys think that makes my OF even more risky?)

Your OF is def a little suspect, but you have some sleepers there taht could boost it if they work out. I'd start Duda honestly, then put Coco in if you need steals taht week or whatever.




So what's everyone think of Allen Craig? Is he gonna have a big year if he stays healthy?

I just picked up Allen Craig in one of my leagues. I think he'll be solid at worst.

I drafted Coco wayyyy too early, as I had him first on my queue (i tend to leave that unorganized), and my internet lost connection for a few seconds and auto-drafted him...

EDIT: Yeah, I think I might go with Duda. I need some more power.

Ugh. 12 teams, head-to-head, money league. I had 4th pick:

C: Carlos Santana, Devin Mesoraco
1B: Albert Pujols, Billy Butler
2B: Jemile Weeks, Jason Kipnis
3B: Ryan Roberts
SS: Elvis Andrus
OF: Shin-Soo Choo, Jason Heyward, Carlos Beltran, Cameron Maybin, Lucas Duda

SP: Roy Halladay, Felix Hernandez, Josh Johnson, Jaime Garcia, Kyle Lohse, Ryan Vogelsong
RP: Drew Storen, Jim Johnson, Tyler Clippard

I don't know where I went wrong but I feel like this is a pretty weak team.
