While I was supposed to be paying attention in Bio class night, I instead decided to participate in a draft for fantasy baseball (whoohoo wireless access). I know, my dedication to education is awe inspiring.
I've won 1st place 3 out of the 4 years that I've played in this league, somehow I don't think that's going to happen this year. Here's who I got:
C: Brian McCann
1B: Adrian Gonzalez
2B: BJ Upton
SS: Hanley Ramirez, Derek "Skeet Skeet" Jeter
3B: Adrian Beltre
OF: Carlos Beltran, Nick Swisher, Jeff Francoeur, Melky Cabrera, Andre Ethier
SP: Carlos Zambrano, Phil Hughes, Derek Lowe, Mike Hampton, John Lester, Yovani Gallardo
RP: Matt Capps, Joakim Soria, Troy Percival
My lineup is good, not great. I'm OK for power but I'm short on speed. I'm going to do everything in my power to dump Jeter on some Yankee homer, there's one in every league. My starting pitching is "meh." I really blew it on the relief pitching, I got the 25 save poo-poo platter. But it's my experience that hitting wins this league. What do you guys think?
* - I realize talking about this makes me not only a dork, but now, a gay dork.
