P and C reported, Spring Training is underway!!!!!!!!!!!

I was just looking up the Tiger's Rotation, we signed Brad Penny...I hope he is a Kenny Rogers and not a Dontrelle Willis... [edit: it was a Willis....Doug Fister was our Kenny Rogers]

But, the average age of our starting rotation is 26...how crazy is that...

Who is CarGo?

my "Sleeper" if any was Max Scherzer, post-AS Break. Not a real sleeper as he was known, but no one kept him through the all star break...but I got him just before his 14k game and road it till the end of the year. He is a good #3/#4 starter.

Can't wait for baseball. Where do you guys play fantasy baseball? I've been using Yahoo, and I think they're great. They've improved a lot in the past few years

I got a decent sleeper pick (or three) for ya i'll pm to you if you want since you're not in any of my leagues.

In fact, we should pm each other our potential sleeper picks for 2011.

How does everyone think Adrian Gonzalez fares in Boston at Fenway? Could be interesting and I hear he's coming off that surgery pretty darn well. I gotta go check some recent ADP.
Likewise. I have some sleepers I'd like to run past you too. Time to clear out some PM box space..

I like Gonzo a lot this year. A lot-lot.

Fine...I will take it to Google...

I get Bobby Cargo and Carlos Gonzalez...since I have no idea who Bobby Cargo is, I'll go with the later.

The NL is just numbers to me in FBB...I don't know any of the players just compare 7, 14, 30 day performance and insert into lineup. I learn NL stars when they finally get picked up by the Yankees.

Yup, Carlos Gonzalez. He was one of the biggest stories in fantasy last year, surprised you didn't know him by his nickname.

Yahoo added an option for auction drafting last season too. I think it works the same as the one on ESPN. I did a regular one and an auction draft last year (came in 2nd in the former, and 1st in the latter)

Probably because I don't really talk baseball with anyone. Well, I talk Tigers with some guys, but not really baseball in general.

Well, what do you want to watch? There is nothing else in season when baseball is in season. Yes, it gets very old when they find one story they think is "popular" (whoever A-Rod is farking) but when they are recapping games it is interesting.

Ditto, except by baseball I meant basketball and that's why I haven't watched SC in weeks now.

somebody can take my spot.. i barely had time last year and this year i'll have even less.. but i will give you sleeper i'll say mark reynolds on the O's has a chance at a huge year.. he already has alot of power but bad swing discipline... he's led the NL in strikeouts the past 2 seasons and is the current single season strike out record holder.. but he's never had a line up like he'll have in baltimore with vlad as a true power hitter.. if he learns some more patience and strikes out less expect some huge numbers for him.. especially if he gets the 3rd spot in the order and gets some really good pitches

I've been using yahoo for the past 3 years. I'm pretty happy with it.

Scherzer is what they call a post hype sleeper.

I think he's in for a great year....better than what you'd expect from a #3 or #4 guy in your rotation. I'm thinking he performs at least like a solid #2 guy.

Yeah? He's known to be quite the durable player with awesome track history but there's that injury he's coming off of. I'm hearing he's recovering well and ahead of schedule but still....ya just never know.

The difference in ballpark factor is clear of course. Coming out of Petco which can deflate hitting stats and going into Fenway which is great for lefties who tend to hit away (like AGonz).

AGonz isn't exactly a pull hitter so he won't always use that short right field porch. But still...that track record is nothing to sniff at. But whatever, But that track history says a lot.
