Fantasy Baseball Draft Results II
Owner: Ryan "Digimon" Volk
Team: Repo Men
Owner: Matt "Reach-around" Shults
Team: Buck Futter
First of all I must introduce myself: I am NJV's cousin Matt Shults and I co-own the team Buck Futter with my good friend Joe Nienhuis. Joe and I feel a bit like the outcast in the league. We only really know Nate. Joe and I have met Steve and Neckers a couple of times. Already, Joe and I agree the draft may have been the most entertaining draft we have particiapted in, it was very interesting just to read all the nasty comments the rest of these so-called friends made to each other. I will admit that I did fall asleep twice during the draft because I think it was longer than Victor Conte's jail sentence. As far as the Buck Futters, we feel real good about our pitching, especially our starters (Carpenter, Patterson, Westbrook, Capuano, D.Davis and former Michigan State Spartan Mark Mulder) but as for our hitting we feel pretty weak in that department. Our infield is not bad, especially with two quality first basemen (Berkman and Korenko) but our outfield leaves a lot to be desired as of today (M. Ramirez, M. Bradley, and Francoeur). Joe and I discussed our feelings about the team and we feel like we are pretty middle of the road. If our pitching can carry us and our hitters are better than expected, we might make a run. But to be honest, we are not really expecting to take home the cash.

Team: Midway LawnMowers
To be quite honest with you, my paragraph comes to you live as i get my first look at my team (a shocking 2 days after the draft), as i did not partake in the drafting festivities due to getting bombed and playing Golden Tee during the NCAA championship game that netted me $275 in gambling profits. I had my little brother draft for me, and i'm told I went on autopilot after the 11th round. Let's see what we got.
As for the bats/field positions: the mauer of power catching, not bad ... CECIL FIELDER'S KID?!?!? ... i've never heard of my shortstop ... VLAD the best pure player in the game that's nice ... ryan "the freel deel" at utility is solid, he'll play anywhere ... SO king geoff jenkins, chronic DLer in no-MAH
Owner: Travis "Prison Rape" Tamminga
Team: Dirt McGurt
Owner: Ryan "The D.C. Strangler" Barwick
Team: The Districts
After two days I'm in first place, and I feel so good about my team that I posted "First place, did you expect anything less?" on the league message board while I was drunk. Speaking of which, there is absolutely nothing wrong with missing my flight to San Diego to watch the World Baseball Classic because I was too hungover and didn't want to wake up, even after my roommate physically woke me up and told me to go to the airport. Anyway, I mistakenly selected Jeff Kent when trying to draft Rich Harden, and then that bastard Tamminga took him. My favorite pick was Miguel Cabrera, but my favorite player is admitted steroid user Jason Giambi.
Also, that Roger Clemens is a line stealing bastard. I was making innappropriate remarks about taking Korea to the cleaners long before that ass-clown did it to the media.
Owner: Steve "Tripod" Lepper
Would you rather be a cent, or.... take a punch to the stomach from Mike Tyson wearing no gloves? This is the question you must ask yourselves. The Centurians drafted a well-rounded team, with speed, power, and good overall pitching. The outfield of Ichiro, Gary Sheffield, and (pick one: Cliff Floyd/Jose Guillen) is one of the best in the league. The Derek's (Lee and Jeter) lead a strong infield, and Pudge should be the glue that keeps the team together (there should be plenty more 5/5 games out of him in the future).
As far as the pitching goes, the Cents stayed young with the D-train, King Felix, Noah Lowry and Zach Duke leading the team. They also went heavy on the closers, taking Trevor Hoffman, Bob Wickman, Todd Jones (only the Lord saves more than Todd Jones, don't forget it), and Jonathon Papelbon. Look for the Centurians to be near the top of the table the entire year.
Best Pick: Jonathon Papelbon in the 21st round.
Worst Pick: None, the draft was immaculate.
