My first draft of the year was The Wacked Conference but together by Gellman over at SCU. I ended up with the last pick which was new to me. Usually I end up somewhere in the very middle to 3rd from last. Two picks in a row was kind of cool but it sure made it a long time till my next pick. I checked the scoring and setting before hand and found out that you get 4 points for a HR in the league and AVG wasn't considered a stat; so I went all out on guys that go deep. Cabrerra dropped all the way down to me so I grabbed him first followed by Carlos Gonzalez. Sticking to mashers I passed on some big name pitchers and grabbed Matt Holliday and my favorite Youkilis. I don't really remember what order I took guys after that but here is what I ended up with:
The second league draft was
I had a tough time deciding on those last guys. I had to cut Pence, Phillips, and Joakim Soria to keep this 5. But I got lucky in the draft and get them all back. Here is what I ended up with:
Again lots of hitting depth, some of my favorite players, and some strong closers. The last two picks probably seem odd but this league has HLDs so got to have some middle relievers. I don't think I could have done much better here.
Barring catastrophic injuries I should be a lock for the playoffs with both of these teams.
