Was Pujols suspended as well?  I confess to not really following closely.  I knew Braun would go first but I'm curious who else goes.

Pujols wasn't suspended. His foot was jacked up a few days ago. There really aren't too many stars being suspended for roids after Braun and A-Rod.  The next biggest name is Nelson Cruz and after that the talent drops off to fringe-fantasy impact.

Congrats Mr. Dressel, a rather dominating season I'd say.  Well done.

Managed to mismanage myself to fourth.   :-\

Congrats Dressel, that was an impressive run!

I can live with a third place finish considering up until now, I hadn't finished higher than fifth.

Have a good off-season and see you guys next year!

Thank you thank you it was a memorable season!!  This was our tenth season doing baseball at JD and this was one of the 3 most memorable.  Some of the highlights of the fantasy baseball decade:

1. 2006.  Last day of the season, Ichiro Suzuki owned by my high school buddy Chris, homers and knocks Scott out of first place.

2. 2010.  Not as happy. Brent employs the 1300+ inning trick and unseats me from first on the last day of the season. Memorable, but not as fun for me as the Ichiro deal.

3. This season.  Big injuries to most of my top players overcome by free agent pickups for the biggest win on record, streak of 5 straight years of being bridesmaid in 2nd place SNAPPED.

See y'all for season 11 in March.

Oh yeah, thanks again for Chris Davis. 


(Did I miss a couple of years?  The first baseball that shows up in my Yahoo history was 2005.)

2005 was first for me as well, though I only started fantasy sports in 2004 so maybe there were other years with other guys?

Yeah Jeff and Reconsgt played early on before you guys.

Did Chris Davis go undrafted?  I actually intended to take him, I usually had him in the past. Been waiting like 3 years for the breakout. He used to be 1B/3B/OF eligible with Texas but would hit like .200 and strikeout constantly. He was on my list though with the strong spring I just forgot to draft him.

Oh not for nothin, Davis is on steroids or GH or sumpin.
