Alfonzo and Kent have carried my team, Fonzie being a late round pick too. Hope he stays healthy. Griffey has done nothing. Belliard has been ok, though I've benched him on too many good days.

I was torn on Castilla, I waiver him, tried to reaquire him, signed Hillenbrand, dumped Hillenbrand. Really with the way Alfonzo is playing, Castilla would not have gotten much playing time and I wasn't going to dump my regular utilty Phil Nevin in favor of him either.

Also grabbed Garland and Fogg early, maybe they're due for breakout seasons, maybe they'll fizzle out early, but I wanted to take a chance on some pitchers.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Tonight it does seem like everyone I benched had big games, while I got cute and pitched Bedard and he got CRUSHED by the popgun Tiger offense :P Well except for Inge anyway, who I picked in the last round and he might be my starting catcher in a matter of hours at this rate (and Estrada isn't doing half-bad but man Inge's been tearing it up - except when I do play him anyway) :lol:

Well I guess we have the first trade of the year (presuming it passes). Now that I have two slap-hitting midfielders with 30-steal potential and only need one, I'd trade Lugo for a SP or a RP, or Lugo and Brown for a good SP if there are any takers.

Another day, a new player on the DL. And none of them have been named Larry Walker yet! So I know that one is due to come down the pipe anytime now.

Ugh, I can't win...I decide to bench Castilla today and he goes 4/5 with TWO SBs...he had like one SB all of last season! I could have won the SB category too, now I'm absolutely screwed for this week. UGH. :angry:


EDIT: Actually, he had ZERO SBs last year. I can't win. :evilcry:

Haha that sucks :P

If it makes you feel any better I had Casey Blake get two steals on my bench in Week 1 (and he had only five all of last year) and lost the category by one lousy steal. There ARE a lot of weird guys getting steals so far, for a week and a half Manny had more steals than homers :lol:

You did get fair value for him, considering I almost had a similar deal with someone else that was turned down a few weeks ago.

I've really focused on the offense since week one, I had too many inconsistent slap hitters after my big four (Manny, Texiera, Huff and Anderson). Drafting Lane and Inge in the last two rounds looks like it's turning out great for me, as did picking up Biggio and Sweeney as FA's. Jeter to me was like the last piece of the offensive puzzle and another player I could plug in without worrying about. As much as I kicked myself for letting Barmes go really I don't know if I would have had the stones to play him every day anyways.

I was reluctant to trade two pitchers (though when I do trade I usually do wind up doing two-for-ones or three-for-twos), but I felt I could do it cause I still had three big starters now that Mulder seems to be back in form and still have two closers with Foulke and Lyon, who might be in the midst of a breakout year. I'd rather shuttle a couple pitchers in and out than platoon hitters anyway. Plus I did get Westbrook back for Lugo, who I had no use for after getting Jeter, but he should be useful to RD at second base.
