I recent months I started getting a little baseball Fantasy fever. I have never played Fantasy baseball and recently read a book about it that made me really enthusiastic. Luckily, Matt at Once a Cub was looking for some players to join his league and I jumped at the opportunity. I guess Matt was happy have a rookie in the league as well so they can profit a bit from my likely mistakes at the start :-)
I had to pass on the live draft as it was in the middle of my night here in Europe. Still, I was able to set some preferences. Here's what I got through the snake draft !!
Catcher: Buster Posey (can't do much better here right?)
1B: Anthony Rizzo (had my PC guy a bit too high on the list I guess, first rookie mistake?)
2B: Jurickson Profar (some dutch influence!)
3B: Evan Longoria
SS: Xander Bogaerts (more dutch influence!)
OF: Billy Hamilton (got me some base stealing here !)
OF: Shane Victorino
OF: Curtis Granderson
Util: Brian McCann
Util: Aaron Hill
Bench: A. Cabrera
Bench: L. Martin
Bench: Mark Teixeira (should I put him in the team at the expense of Rizzo because bench players do not score you points right ?)
Bench: Carl Crawford (traded him for someone else, but can't find on the site for whom just yet :-) I was worried about his recent injury and the competition in the team at the moment)
SP: Tanaka (!!)
SP. Felix Hernandez
RP: David Robertson
P: Julio Teheran
P: C. Janssen
P: C. Archer
P: Matt Garza (traded him right away for someone else)
Bench: T. Ross
On the pitching side I am not sure if all the pitchers can score (besides the bench guy) or just the first 4 ?
Let me finish with a card, a cool new Kershaw. He was my first pick in my list but apparently I was not the first to pick and he was snatched away !
So any thoughts, tips, views, please let me know, I am complete new to this !
