2011 Fantasy Baseball Help/Discussion Thread
Last year's team = $$$$$$$$
Last year my guy was Cargo and obviously that paid HUGE dividends...
I cannot expect a repeat performance but here's what I'm seeing so far in terms of value where guys are ranked:
- - - Joe Mauer
- - Carl Crawford
+++ Prince Fielder
+++ Mark Teixeira
+ Matt Kemp
++ Jose Reyes
- Adam Wainwright
- - CC Sabathia
+ Jon Lester
- Zack Greinke
- - - - Adrian Beltre
+ Kendry Morales
- Brandon Phillips
++++ Tommy Hanson
+++ Jay Bruce
- - - - - Ichiro Suzuki
- - Andre Ethier
- - Jayson Werth
++ Stephen Drew
+++++ Mike Stanton
- - - - Vlad Guerrero
+ Mark Reynolds
+ Elvis Andrus
+ Max Scherzer
+ Pablo Sandoval
- - - Casey McGehee
+ Brandon Morrow
+ Jacoby Ellsbury
++++ Curtis Granderson
++ Brett Anderson
+++ Adam Jones
- Grady Sizemore
++ Carlos Beltran
++ Manny Ramirez
+++ Jeremy Hellickson
+ Mike Napoli
+ James Shields
- Paying for/using high picks on closers
- Paying for/using high picks on speed guys with limited power
+ Waiting on 2B for Aaron Hill, Gordon Beckham, Howie Kendrick, or Chone Figgins
+ Mets pitchers late (specifically Chris Young)
+ Drafting the BEST PLAYER (BEST STATS) AVAILABLE ON YOUR BOARD instead of worrying about positional scarcity and overvaluing infielders.
I'm absolutely lost/intrigued with the following players:
Any catcher before round 12 - If Santana is sitting there in round seven, why not pull the trigger instead of taking another OF? Most sites advise against drafting catchers early in leagues with just one C spot though...
David Wright - 10 HRs two years ago still haunts. Is the 20+ SBs and 3B eligibility worth passing on a 40+ HR potential 1B? I DON'T KNOW!!!!
Ryan Howard - His #s are on a steady decline but why can't they go back up a little? He's not THAT old, right?
Jose Bautista - 54 isn't happening again but is 40 with .250ish and 10 steals possible? Probable?
Justin Upton - Finally the year he puts it all together? Cargoish #s?
Jason Heyward - Will this be the last year you can get him outside of the first round?
Michael Young - Model of consistency, right? But it has to end sometime...
Francisco Liriano - Injury risk?
Alexei Ramirez - Why exactly is he rated so high?
Alex Rios - Classic underachiever but his #s were pretty good last year. Why is he rated below his SS?
Aramis Ramirez - Finished strong. But what is he at this point?
B.J. Upton - The potential is always there.
Dan Haren - Full season in the AL will do what?
Carlos Pena - He won't hit under .200 again, but the Cubs offense is a lot worse than the Rays? How about the park?
Derrek Lee - You can get a guy real late who was a star just two years ago.
Adam Lind - Some places predict a big bounce-back.
Colby Lewis - Ks repeat?
Jorge De La Rosa - Stuff is good, team will be good. Potential 15-17 game winner?
Edinson Volquez - Lost.
Daniel Hudson - He was RIDICULOUS last season. So where's the hype?
Jordan Zimmerman - Difficult to trust any WAS pitcher.
Michael Pineda - Hearing a lot of sleeper talk.
Jose Tabata - Difficult to trust any Pirates player period.
Any BoSox fans on here? Should I pick up John Lackey and drop the Rockies SP De La Rosa?

Here's my team, i think i did real well for a keeper ten person league.
C: Brian McCann
1B: Joey Votto
2B: Martin Prado/Mikey Alives
3B: Pedro Alvarez
SS: Starlin Castro (playin real well suprisingly)
OF: Justin Upton
OF: Jason Heyward
OF: Nick Markakus/Adam Lind/Adam Jones
UTIL: one of those guys
SP: Tim Lincicum
SP: Clayton Kershaw
SP: Mat Latos
RP: Fransisco Rodriguez
RP: Fransisco Cordero
P: Fransisco Liriano
P: Ted Lilly
P: Ian Kennedy/Johan Santana (DL)/Johnny Cueto (DL) (When Cueto's off the DL, he's the guy)
Alright guys I need some help here. I only have 1 move left and I'm trying to decide whether to pick up Jordan Walden or put in a waiver for Delmon Young who just got dropped.
My Lineup looks like this:
C: JP Arencibia
1B: Miguel Cabrera
2B: Reid Brignac
3B: Aramis Ramirez
SS: Alcides Escobar
OF: Matt Kemp
OF: Torii Hunter
OF: Carlos Lee
UTIL: David Ortiz
BN: Brandon Belt and Carlos Beltran
DL: Chase Utley
SP: Cliff Lee
SP: Max Scherzer
RP: Carlos Marmol
RP: Jose Valverde
P: Francisco Cordero
P: Aroldis Chapman
P: Jose Contreras
P: Jake McGee
BN: Javi Vazquez, Jeremy Hellickson, Kyle Drabek and Michael Pineda.
DL: Brandon Morrow
Now waiting for Delmon is a bit of a risk since I have the lowest waiver priority in the league at 14 in a league of 14. But the upside is, more than half the league is out of moves.
I am pretty well set with three dominant closers but this is a great opportunity to add another, but Delmon would also upgrade my OF over Carlos Lee and become an everyday starter for me.
What do you guys think? and WHO do i drop for one of them!?
Who has the better season: Ian Desmond or Starlin Castro?
Is Desmond Jennings a must add right now in the midst of Manny retiring?
I have huge holes at 2B (Utley out) and SS where my starter right now is Alcides Escobar.
I am starting Sean Rodriguez currently at 2b and am thinking about keeping him there to see what he does. But these options are out there right now: Juan Uribe, Marco Scutaro and Ty Wigginton. The first two are SS and 2B eligible, while Ty is just 2B. Should I pick up any of these guys or just go with what I have, and who would it be if I was to get one of them?
Guys, should I trade Kyle Drabek for Pedro Alvarez?
Where is everyone in here??
Do you guys think that JJ Hardy is worth the pick up at this point?
Someone just dropped Chris Carpenter in my league....pick up?
I need to drop Ricky Nolascblows, so a SP is a must for me.
Also available are Bumgarner and Cueto....thinking one of those 3.
League is 10 teams, H2H, 5x5 stats.
just traded youk for hanraham. what do you bitches think?
