      My buddy will take the team. He's a big baseball fan and will be an active manager. Maybe I can even get him to buy a VW

      How many of you guys still have a VW? I do, but haven't been impressed with the changes they've been making in recent years. I feel like the latest models are all beginning to look the same, and I'm not a big fan of the previous individual options being turned into a few pre-packaged trim levels.

      I just got back into one after 2 years. Its a 2002 Passat W8, one owner, 60K miles that my wife found online. Definitely glad I bought it.

      The new stuff is bland unless you are getting a GTi. Even the new GLi is blah.

      I feel like they lost their idendity somewhere around the B5/B6 Passat... after that, I havent been a big fan.

      Last "VW" I had was a B6 A4. Loved that damn car...even w/ its bad coil packs.

      Drive a civic now... because I came to the realization that my daily driver for my 30mi each way commute should be the cheapest, most reliable, least reconizable and best on gas car I could find. When I bank enough cash... I want a Sunday car that I will baby. I havent washed my car in 6 months. LOL

      I did this same thing nearly 10 years ago --- went from a B5 A4 to a leased Civic Si when I went back to grad school and had to be able to exactly budget my tiny little stipend, yet have a reliable daily driver with good gas mileage that I could pack full of stuff when moving.

      The plan was to dump it within a year of finishing school and working. Ten years later, I haven't found a good enough justification to get rid of it (my wife has gone through 4 cars in that time ). And I still haven't washed it

      Birds of a feather? I leased an Eos for awhile. When that was up, I bought my sister in law's 2002 Accord with 135k miles on it. I'm back in a manual transmission, and it's perfect for driving around the city. Someday I'll get a toy, but this car works great for now. If I were to get a new VW, I'd probably want a TDI Jetta wagon, but even that impulse is pretty minimal.

      Also, I've recently developed a Monday evening conflict that means I'll miss the draft. I just spent about an hour pre-ranking, so hopefully my team won't suck too bad. Or I'll wind up with 6 catchers.

      I still have a passion for cars... Just not my own.

      Looks like my friend is registered and I think he may have trumped all of our team names

      I may be a little late to the draft. I'm off work at 5 and it takes about 40-45 minutes to get home. Hopefully the traffic is light.

      What time will the draft order be revealed?

      Dammit, I had some "simple" after hours work at one of our sites around 8:15p and never made it back in time. It was supposed to be in and out I'm afraid to even check my roster...

      For having auto drafted, I really like my roster. I am really deep at 1st and 3rd, so I'll take offers for pitching.

      WTF autodraft? Mine did the same thing. I have a ton of offense, no pitching depth Looks like I'll be hitting the trade market as well.

      In a 10 team mixed league, I'm not big on paying a lot for pitching. Guys always emerge during the season that you can pick up, especially for streaming H2H. However, I am troubled that I seem to have only one closer, so that needs to change.

      I got Lance Berkman in the 9th, which is around when the closers started to go. So maybe a top 5 closer and a lesser closer for Berkman and one of my lesser but still decent starters like Ryan Dempster.

      I have pitching depth... but Im weak at 2nd and SS. Though I love Kipnis and think he can be a monster if he plays a full year.

      Since LB was excited about his staff, I thought I'd open it for debate

      World Champion Gortex Vortex:
      SP: Kershaw, Hamels, Price, Romero, Fister, Bucholz, Zambrano
      RP: Axford, Bell, Hanrahan, Capps, Johnson, Venters

      CostanzAs:
      SP: Verlander, CC, Strasburg, J Johnson, Feliz, Jurjens, Jarrod "Krypton" Parker, Drew Pomeranz
      RP: Mo, Brian Wilson, Nathan

      The CostanzA's have a nice staff there. I'm pretty OK with mine:

      SP: Lee, Haren, Gallardo, Hellickson, Nova, Darvish, McCarthy, Cahill
      RP: Valverde, F. Cordero

      If some of those back-of-the-rotation guys step up it'd be nice.

      Your staff is almost as powerful as mine, beng. I just think Verlander and Sabathia are as guaranteed as it gets. Josh Johnson and Strasburg could be unbelievable as my 3 and 4 if they are healthy.

      Motown, that's a great stable of SP.

      I thought I was weak at RP. But it seems like some of you only have 2 or 3 closers.

      I like where Motown goy Darvish, that was a good pick

      Im all about Toronto this year. Reached for Lawrie... hope he has a monster year.

      Keep bragging about your pitching depth, guys. Let's see if those rosters of yours don't accidentally get locked

      2 closers should be more than fine for a H2H league... if it was roto I'd definitely have grabbed a 3rd. Problem is, after the elite and almost-there closers, it seems like a reach to me to grab a 3rd one in this draft, simply because you can get another decent bat or a SP who can win 12-14 games with that same pick.

      Let's just hope he's as advertised... my cable system doesn't carry Nippon League games so I'm going strictly on hype.

      beng, full disclosure: I got a tweet 3 minutes ago from Susan Slusser of the SF Chronicle that Balfour is closing.

      I'll jump on the Volkswagen talk bandwagon... I had an '01 Wolfsburg Edition Jetta from '03-'11 and had a love hate relationship. It needed a TON work to even pass smog so I ended up taking it to Car Max and being offered $2,500 for it! I took that and we used it as part of a downpayment on a brand new Ford Fiesta for the girlfriend and I took her 2000 Plmymouth Neon.

      But I'm happy with my staff (Giggity!) Jered Weaver, Felix Hernandex, C.J. Wilson, Josh Beckett.
