3 teams. No draft. Doubt we'll get 8- nephew n he's new at it I think.

Too bad- I was relishing the challenge of playing in such an unorthodox way.

Honest question - do you guys start pitchers when they are playing against your favorite team?

If you do, there's always an upside.

A: Your team gets destroyed, but at least you got a grip of fantasy points!
B: Your fantasy pitcher got destroyed, but your team won!


Otherwise, the only upside is if your team wins.

Good points. Though right now I'm wishing I didn't start Volquez.

Or you have both pitchers and one throws a CG shutout with 10Ks, and a reliever loses a 1-0 lead to the other team after the SP has allowed one run and racked up the same number of strikeouts.

Meanwhile Tailored (isn't that you, Steve?) is beating me with five of my team's guys: Volstad, Bonifacio, Nolasco, Maybin, Cantu. Ugh.

I had the best case senario once. I started Sidney Ponson (BAL) vs. Jose Rosado (KC). Neither pitcher really ever lit the world on fire, but I decided what the heck. They end up having a pitchers duel and Baltimore wins it 1-0. Ponson goes 9 and Rosado goes 8. My ERA for that day alone was like .38

Life is so short. I actually had Nick Adenhart as a sleeper this year. Really puts things in perspective. : (

I guess those pre-draft player rankings I put together paid off in my absence. Now if I could just pick up another closer I'll be in good shape.

I don't think I have Volstad.

I'm smirking because I scooped Bonifacio. Looks like he's going to have a great year. Possibly Maybin too.

Only chance I have against Ming the Merciless.

I think you spot-started Volstad against me. I saw him pitch at the stadium, and he's still the same guy as last season: raw, sometimes uncontrolled, but super talented. Bonifacio has shown nothing in the minors to suggest he's special. He's a slap hitter with a high groundball rate, so he'll go through hot and cold streaks. He also has zero job security since he has a number of challengers on the Marlins bench (Andino, Amezaga) and in the minors (Gaby Sanchez, Dallas McPherson). Conclusion: enjoy his awesome production but keep him on a short leash. Anyway I picked up Purcey from the Jays instead, who ran through a great Tigers lineup the other day. FA still has a lot of solid prospects and players; I dropped the Rays' Balfour to get Purcey, for example.

I thought YOU were Ming The Merciless...

Now I'm confused.
