    Think I finished worst in the predicted standings but I definitely performed the drafts strategy I wanted to. Load up on power and speed while getting solid 2-3 starting pitchers.

    is there a predicted standings deal on espn, didnt see anything? I had no strategy beyond waiting for Kang and Parra late in the draft I wanted those two pretty bad.

    Steals should be ok. pitching, especially RP, is weak.

    My starting pitching... Woof.

    Otherwise, the computer did a decent job autodrafting after I had to leave.

    That may not be a bad thing if you want to spam pitchers for wins and strikeouts though.

    that would be ok - If my early strategy was not to grab good pitching early while sacrificing my hitting. I grabbed Sherzer, Kluber, Cueto and Britton. in rounds (2,3,6,8)

    hitting got picked over pretty well, I cant say there is a single player thats worth picking up on the wire right now. Had I known thats how it would look like in this league I probably would have focused on that and waited for pitching because their are decent ones still available.

    Tough break off the bat for BDK as Brett Anderson is out for 3-5 months now with back surgery. Got hurt on draft day but it was brushed off as a minor thing.

    Looks like Capps is the same type of situation as well, could be out for the year.

    Well, ~one month in the books. You fellas ready to call it a season? That guy way out front seems to have the 'ship all but wrapped up.

    That's why I can't play fantasy baseball anymore. A few sabre metric nuts dominate and it's just no fun. Used to love it.

    Very frustrating, my pitching staff just can't get it together. Also, my stolen bases are pitiful. Thought my team would compete but I'm middle of the pack right now.

    any word on if there will be a league this year? I'm interested, if only to have my ass kicked.

    I'm interested, but the league setup last year was boring as hell. Need weekly matchups instead of cumulative stats.
