    If you could start from scratch...

    I got "recruited" to be a charter owner in a new Diamond Mind Baseball league. So,why not tap into the collective genius that is RedsZone,eh?

    It is a 20 team league and I drew 20th (and 21,it snakes) pick. We are slated to start drafting the day after Labor Day,but I thought I'd get this up so anybody interested can be thinking ahead.

    Or,if you'd like to opine on who you think would be the top 21 players to begin a new franchise with,that would be cool also.

    Maybe I'll create a poll or two down the line as the draft moves along. It's an e-mail draft so it takes a while.

    Round 1

    (1) Utgard Frost Giants - Albert Pujols
    (2) Gryffindor Sorcerers - Miguel Cabrera
    (3) Kansas Wildcats - Joe Mauer
    (4) Georgetown Giants - Johan Santana
    (5) Weatogue Warriors - Grady Sizemore
    (6) Windy City Storm - David Wright
    (7) Quebec City Citadelles - Jason Bay
    (8) Billyburg Ballwhackers - Alex Rodriguez
    (9) Michigan Hacking Cough - Travis Hafner
    (10) Ft. Worth Fighting Amish - Jose Reyes
    (11) Wichita Windbreakers - Dontrelle Willis
    (12) Hillsbrough Zaps - Vladimir Guerrero
    (13) Harbourside Bluejackets - Carlos Zambrano
    (14) New York Hitmen - Ryan Howard
    (15) Alfheim Elves - Jeremy Bonderman
    (16) Beantown Broken Horns - David Ortiz
    (17) New England Riptide - Jake Peavy
    (18) Pottsville Yuenglings - Carlos Beltran
    (19) Neufchatel Niners - Carl Crawford
    (20) Quahog Drunken Clams - Adam Dunn

    Round 2



    (1) Quahog Drunken Clams - Roy Oswalt

    (2) Neufchatel Niners - Chase Utley

    (3) Pottsville Yuenglings - Miguel Tejada

    (4) New England Riptide - Vernon Wells

    (5) Beantown Broken Horns - Andruw Jones

    (6) Alfheim Elves - Brandon Webb

    (7) New York Hitmen – Roy Halladay

    (8) Harbourside Bluejackets

    (9) Hillsbrough Zaps

    (10) Wichita Windbreakers

    (11) Ft. Worth Fighting Amish

    (12) Michigan Hacking Cough

    (13) Billyburg Ballwhackers

    (14) Quebec City Citadelles

    (15) Windy City Storm

    (16) Weatogue Warriors

    (17) Georgetown Giants

    (18) Kansas Wildcats

    (19) Gryffindor Sorcerers

    (20) Utgard Frost Giants

    Liriano, Carl Crawford. Hernandez(seattle), Jered Weaver, if you have pitching then you have the Bargaining chips to fill other holes or to atleast be respectable from the get go.
    2006 Redzone mock Draftee's- 1(st) Daniel Bard(redsox), 1(st sup)( Jordan Walden (Angels), 2(nd) rd.- Zach Britton(Orioles), 3(rd) Blair Erickson(Cardinals), 3(rd) Tim Norton( Yankees),(cuz its a Tim Hortons thing

    Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory... lasts forever.

    Are Adam Dunn and Roy Oswalt the 20th and 21st best players in the league to start a franchise? The Drunken Clams believe so.

    Re: If you could start from scratch...

    Where is Alfonso Soriano? He should be second on that list, hands down.

    David Ortiz 16th?

    Re: If you could start from scratch...

    Remember,Youth plays a factor here since we are building for the future as well as trying to compete from the start. Almost took Soriano there myself as I debated he,Dunn,Berkman and Andruw Jones.

    Also,this is a sim league and we will be using the 2005 "cards" for the inaugral season.

    that is going to be one long wait until it gets back to you again!
    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.

    Jose Reyes behind A-Rod? Please tell me someone else realizes Jose is 23 and to say the sky is the limit would be a huge understatement.

    Sorry to burst your anticipation, but Teixeria was drafted in the 2nd round.
    Matta = Really good
