Draft Number Two – Atlanta Slaves

I finished the draft for my Yahoo league. When I started this blog it was about my ESPN league I agreed to participate in so I named the site as so. However I am more certain with this league that I will end up walking away with the championship belt around my waist. Currently I am shopping around Robinson Cano whom I am not high on this year because of the Yankees lineup. They are also not a team I particularly like. I would enjoy seeing their failure. I only have Cano because this is a Keeper League and I inherited a team where he was the best player. So until I get an offer I cannot refuse, I will stick with him. Or I should just release all my players and pick up crappy ones then refuse to pay the entry fee. That would screw everything in the league up.

Since Yahoo doesn’t like me copying and pasting my roster over (they make it nearly impossible to accomplish) here are two pictures of my legendary team. You may have to click on the pictures to actually be able to read them.

Draft Results

Here is a long list you would have to be obsessed with me to look over. Our drat was completed with me having the number 5 pick. You will see I clearly made the best picks and have the best team name. I managed to fill up all the slots I needed. Now all I have to do is sit back and wait for the other owners to beg to make a trade with me.

I would analyze the draft, but why? The season hasn’t started, I’m not getting paid, and the teams will change a lot before opening day. I’m also not an expert and anything I say, like the other “experts” or “sexperts” as I like to call them to be silly because most fantasy baseball experts are known perverts, will be mostly nonsense.

Throughout the season I plan to update any transactions the Miami Carlins make. After all, this blog is from my point of view. I should not be concerned with what other men do.

To throw in some simple trash talk as I hope to do plenty of this season, I will say Team Gold clearly had the worst draft. I’m not sure how many rounds he was actually selecting during because he had to leave to lower some lotion in a basket down a hole.

I don’t know much about the guy. Mike Trout was not the worst first pick. It certainly was not the correct one. His second pick was Chris “What Have I Ever Done” Sale followed up by Giancarlo “I Have No Talent Around Me” Stanton. The only pick he stole away from me was Paul Goldschmidt which was not a big deal because I already had first base set up with Allen Craig and Freddie Freeman. It’s never good when you have to auto-draft. Team Gold proved once again being a creepy serial killer who kidnaps women (yes I’m accusing him of this) will take away more important responsibilities, like picking a good team.
