    lots of power in your outfield, but also some pretty crappy defensive players.

    If you want to start a new thread and poll we can close this one and move the posts to the new one.

    Mods can't change the setting of a poll other than the words.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
