Of course you’ll never read this…

Nobody cares about my fantasy team.  Not even the other teams in my league care about my team.  I care…too much.  Sometimes I’ll tell my wife about it, and she looks at me and, at best, nods and says,”Uh-Huh”.  That’s about as much validation as I’ll ever get.

Nonetheless, I’ve decided to share here about my team.  I’ll give weekly updates of outcomes and moves I’ve made.  This will most likely bore you. But I won’t be bored.  I love this shit.  Maybe you’ll grow to love it too….if not then read something else on MLBeef.

League Overview:

10-team mixed 6×6 H2H keeper league with OPS and L added.  Each category win counts as 1 win (i.e. you can go 7-4-1, or 12-0, or 2-10 in any given week).  This is the 5th year of the league.  Introducing team Towel Snap Votto:

  • C – Wilson Ramos
  • 1B – Adrian Gonzalez
  • 2B – Dustin Pedroia

    I will win this hat one day

  • SS – Erick Aybar
  • 3B – Jose Bautista
  • OF – Ryan Braun
  • OF – Michael Bourn
  • OF – Adam Jones
  • Util – Carlos Beltran
  • Util – David Ortiz
  • BN – Melky Cabrera
  • BN – Billy Butler
  • BN – Brennan Boesch
  • SP – Madison Bumgarner
  • SP – Adam Wainwright
  • SP – Brandon Beachy
  • SP – Brandon Morrow
  • RP – Brandon League
  • RP – Javy Guerra
  • P – Sean Marshall
  • BN – Matt Moore
  • BN – Anibal Sanchez
  • BN – Brandon McCarthy

My keepers were Adrian Gonzalez, Ryan Braun, Dustin Pedroia, Jose Bautista, Michael Bourn, and Matt Moore.  I’ve had Braun since the league started. Traded for Gonzalez in 2008 for Carlos Lee straight up. Traded Hanley Ramirez and some shit for Joey Bats last year.  Traded Brett Lawrie and first round pick for Pedroia and Bourn this off-season.  Picked up Moore during playoffs last year.

I’ve made two moves this year.  Dropped Vinne Pestano, who I drafted for Grant Balfour.  Then dropped Balfour for Marshall when Ryan Madson got hurt.  I went 7-4-1 last week.

My general strategy was to load up on bats and take some rick/reward pitching and work the FA pool.

Subsequent posts will be shorter, but I wanted to lay this out there so there is some background.  I’ll do roster updates every once in a while as it turns over.  Most trade ideas, pick ups, etc. I’ll post after the happen, fail, or whatever because some a-holes in my league might read this and screw me.

Enjoy ignoring this article the rest of the year.
