    I like Rondon. I considered him the last 2-3 rounds but kept talking myself out of it. I think he will be a good pitcher down the road; maybe not so 'irrelevant.'

    I went back and forth between Rondon and Derek Holland for my last pick. I think Hector is a great pick but I went with Holland because he has a higher ceiling if he ever gets it all together (and the Rangers stop horribly mishandling him).

    and if he can get traded to a team that has a ballpark where t-ballers don't hit HR's... : J/K I like Holland too, but I hate Texas pitchers...could be the Vicente Padilla aftertaste, I'm not sure...

    Re: League of Reds Nation -- the ultimate dynasty

    Anyone else having problems accessing their team page?

    I tried to go in to set the lineup for today both last night and again this morning. My team won't load. It's giving me a blank page where the players should be listed. I can't make any changes for today because of it.

    I thought perhaps it was a problem with the browser I was using (Chrome) so I tried on Firefox. No luck there, either.

    I'm I the only one having this issue? Thoughts?

    I'm not having any trouble. I'm using Google Chrome on a Mac, and also got it to work on my PS3 browser. Good luck...it stinks when you have a problem like this.

    Thanks.

    I was able to get it resolved. It took a reinstallation of Java and a few reboots of my system, but it's working now.

    Re: League of Reds Nation -- the ultimate dynasty

    Well a month in and I'm scraping against the bottom of the points well. As with my draft strategy though, I kind of anticipated it.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Hang in there Joseph. The points are very fluid this early in the season. A couple good days could have you back in the thick of things very quickly.

    Oh absolutely. Since this is a dynasty I'm not at all looking at this as being a 'bad' team. It is just a team that needs to grow together a little. Stanton is a monster thus far in AA and who knows when he'll be called up. It's fun working towards what will hopefully be a juggernaut of a team in a season or two.

    At this rate, he'll be up by July.

    I can't believe it's been 2 months since anyone's posted! Just wanted to bump this thread for the sake of bumping.

    My team has been a disappointment, though I'm creeping slowly back up on the leaders. I think, when it's all said and done, I can/will get to the upper 80's. It's the last 5-7 points needed to catch AD that will be a tight struggle.

    I've really enjoyed this season. The two of us seem to be battling for third at the moment but it is going to bunch up much more before all is said and done. I agree, catching AD will be a tall order for any of us.
