There is no similar player at 2B.

BTW, nice Famine impression :-*

I mean similar value, not similar numbers.  Sorry.

I was well aware of it at the time - and considering Giambi's numbers last season, I considered him an excellent value in the 12th round

Agreed,
Same with Kevin last year though.  He was loaded with one baggers, but they weren't ever bad players. 

But I still don't think there's anything of value at 2B outside of Utley, at least this early.  I think Scott has Kendrick, which could be interesting.  Beyond that I think you're better off looking for that OF/RP.

Don't give me yet another reason to work day and night on the strategery that continues to keep you firmly affixed as my bride's maid...

If I had taken him, he'd have been in the toilet.  Not really much choice there.

Want proof?

My luck isn't restricted to basketball and football, it would seem.

Ouchie.

This is why I will not take a pitcher before round 5.  Fortunately for my strategery, that typically only eliminates Johan and Carpenter.

Hopefully for you, Carpenter will be back in May.  It kinda sounds like they don't know what is wrong yet though.  He might just as easily be down for the year.

It's reading a lot like Liriano's injury did for a while last year.  It's also sounding strangely like David West's injury in basketball, though obviously it's even more serious for a pitcher. 

I know better than to pick favorites, but Carpenter just woos me.

Anyone know if the Mariners are going to make up the series that was basically canceled?  Not that it would help me too much, but I've only got 13 at-bats for Ichirio and a mere 1.0 IP for Putz...

I'm sure they'll make it up at some point.  It's going to be a bitch though trying to coordinate schedules.  And there's a high possibility that tomorrow's game between the Mariners and Sox (the last of the series so no chance of a doubleheader) is going to get rained/snowed/sleeted out.

Ichiro had been cold, so I started Matthews.  Matthews' game was PPD so I tried to start Ichiro.  But the game slot was already locked.

Then Ichiro goes 4/5 with 4 Runs, a HR, 2 RB, and a SB.

I know my team sucks, but I can't catch a break...

EDIT:  Just saw that practically everyone on my team had their game postponed today.

Ortiz, Paul Lo Duca, David Wright, Matthews Jr., Tejada, Brian Roberts, and Tom Gordon all were supposed to play today and didn't.

Sheesh.

Want some worse news?  I think those PPD games count towards your used games.  I'm not sure, but my games remaining kept going down when the games in Cleveland were continually postponed with snow.  But I think it only applies to the hitters and not pitchers.  Still, I'm not really sure so hopefully I'm wrong.

But hey, if you want company that's miserable, I'm there for ya.  Prior to today Pujols is hitting sub-.200 with only a single HR.  A. Ramirez is out with an injury for a couple of days and Carpenter is on the DL.  One of my relievers is having arm issues too.  Aloha baby.

But I gotta ask: what's Ichiro doing on your bench in the first place?

Nah, they don't count.  At some point the "games remaining" you speak of will be accurate.  I'm sure.


But I gotta ask: what's Ichiro doing on your bench in the first place?

I believe the question should be "Why was he drafted in the first place?"

He's one of the most overrated players in fantasy.  An outfielder who comes in way under the average in power numbers.  Humph, try making that up with your infield.

I'd be happy with an overrated guy in my outfield at the moment.   ;)

Glad to hear the games will re-adjust hopefully.  It doesn't hurt average obviously, but totals it could.
