    Reds drafted

    Amazing, EdE just went #13 overall in the Yahoo league I'm in. Griffey went in the 4th which I thought was a little early.

    Yeah, 17th round isn't bad at all to grab EE, but holy crap, #13 overall, which would be the 2nd round.

    Poor guy/gal who is running that team.
    Matta = Really good

    I drafted Eddie E. in all 3 of my leagues. 23rd round, 21st round and reached for him (i thought) in the 20th round.

    Re: Reds drafted

    EdE went undrafted in my league. The only other Reds drafted were:

    Griffey
    Dunn
    FeLo

    That's IT!
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    Re: Reds drafted

    I have lots of Reds. I got Dunn in the 6th, Lopez in the 7th, and then Kearns in the last round to go with EdwinE.

    This is partially due to being out of fantasy baseball for so long that I have no idea who is who.

    My starting 8:

    David Ortiz
    Jeff Kent
    Felipe Lopez
    David Wright
    Adam Dunn
    Pat Burell
    Vernon Wells
    Jason Varitek

    I also got Roy Oswalt and a host of pitchers that I haven't the slightest clue as to who they are.

    T. Hudson, C. Young, David Bush, Oliver Perez, D. Cabrera, E. Bedard, and my closers are Isringhausen and Cordero.

    I have to start two SPs and two RPs and then 3 other pitchers. If anyone can tell me who I would be best suited going with, it would be appreciated, because Bob Welch was a relevant fantasy player the last time I played this game.

    Dom, starting 8 looks pretty solid but SB's might be an issue. Obviously, Oswalt is an ace and Daniel Cabrera is an ace in the making but he may be another year away. A lot of question marks, what other SP's are available on the WW?
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    SB's might be an issue.
    Yeah, my guys are pretty much all power. I hate speedsters, but it is probably going to get me killed.

    I only have to start two starters and then I can start 3 pitchers, and I have no idea if I am better off going with middle relievers or more closers.

    As for pitchers available- if I do a search of the highest ranked guys available here is what comes up:

    Radke
    Maddux
    Loaiza
    Lowe
    P. Byrd
    J Towers
    Wakefield
    Suppan
    Linebrink
    David Wells
    B Chen
    Farnsworth
    Glavine
    Howry
    Marquis

    I couldn't tell you if any of these are better than what I have or not.
