      I ranked the first 150.... then gave up because my eyes started to hurt.

      My apologies to the league. It sucks when people arent at the draft and then you have to wait for their allottment of time to pass for every pick.

      Sorry fellas

      That will be me for the Seinfeld league. Sorry in advance but I've got too much going on to even think about ranking players.

      I'm pretty happy with my squad, but I waited too long to pick up a 2B. I am kind of hoping this is the breakout season everyone has been waiting for Weeks to have. My team average is hurting a bit too with Jones, Weeks, and Cust.

      Trading in Arroyo for Way Back Weaver or Pavano?

      It's pretty funny, my early picks (the ones that were ranked) gave me a lot of the guys I wanted. I kinda wish I had ranked past 150 though because my team is a little lacking on the back end.

      Oh well... Ill just have to micro manage as usual and add/drop like a crazy person throughout the season.

      I'm in mid-research now......

      Surprised to see Barry Zito still available. I certainly won't take a chance on him........wonder if anyone else will.

      He was my 3rd pitching pick last year. ...and he burned me good with that rotten WHIP

      I cut bait after the All Star break. It really pissed me off.

      Didn't realize how bad or how close Pujols is to be sidelined for an extended period of time.

      He should have the surgery now. Miss a season and come back healthy. Its bad news when you play through that kind of injury... his stats and his career length will suffer.

      Exactly why I avoided him. He started to fall a bit and I was considering, but he still went too early for my liking.

      Probably should've looked into Beltran's knee issues, but he'll get it going over the season. Otherwise I feel pretty good. This team's definitely going to hit.

      Seems like the thing to do here, let me post mine

      C Victor Martinez
      1B Prince Fielder
      3B David Wright
      SS Carlos Guillen
      2B/SS Miguel Tejada
      1B/3B Evan Longoria
      OF Torii Hunter
      OF Hideki Matsui
      OF Andruw Jones
      OF Nick Swisher
      OF Willy Taveras
      UTIL Geovany Soto
      Bench Ryan Theriot
      Bench Billy Butler
      Bench Jack Cust

      P Brandon Webb
      P John Lackey
      P Bobby Jenks
      P Javier Vazquez
      P Francisco Liriano
      P Trevor Hoffman
      P Phil Hughes
      P Mark Buehrle

      I may have reached a bit for Tejada, and I waited a bit long for 2B, but I'm hoping for the Weeks of last September (and injury free). I seem to be lacking in the average department though. I think I should be really good in R, HR, and RBI though. Also, I am pretty excited about my pitching staff.

      To be honest. he worries me too. Outfielders were getting a bit thin and last year was by far not his norm. Since he is not playing for a contract I figure he will bounce back some. His average may be my doom though.

      Jones was gonna be a pick for me till you snatched him up.

      I have high hopes for him.......I think he'll put together 2 great seasons in LA as he works towards his last BIG contract after that.

      Totally missed the Yahoo draft last night but my squad looks to be pretty OK hitting wise.

      Yeah the trade stuff doesn't exactly jump out at you on your "my team" page.

      I posted this as a manager note but no one responded so I'll post it here and see if anyone reads it.

      I just made trophies for the weekly points leader and weekly points runner up. I also made a trophy for the worse move of the week.

      I guess we'll have to vote on the worst move of the week.

      Can anyone think of another trophy that could be cool/funny?
