Jason and Rob, my old partners and I coined a phrase "No one cares about your team but you." But yet, I have contradicted our own credo and spent two blog entries detailing a couple of "my teams." So here is the explanation as to why I have shared these teams and will continue to share other teams I draft.
The thing to keep in mind when I talk about specific players, player pool observations and strategies is not to focus entirely on the actual analysis, though that is perfectly acceptable fodder for discussion, but rather to apply the more general concept of drawing your own conclusions and mapping out your own means to take advantage of the situation as you see it.
By means of example, I have been opined about how I find the second tier of closers to be shallower than normal, the second tier of starting pitchers to be quite plush, the back end of the catching pool to be a cesspool and how none of the non-catching hitters in rounds 4-6 interest me.
I have then offered how I plan to deal with these observations: taking a top-closer early and taking a top-catcher early.
Again, my fantasy-life is an open book and I welcome all comments, but the take-home message should not be whether you agree or disagree with my personal observations, but rather to keep in mind the building of a team is a puzzle and in order to build the best puzzle, you need to know the player pool inside and out and determine how you can best balance value and stats based upon your personal observations.
That said, I have 2 more teams I will be sharing with you over the next few days. So along with simply sharing who I took, I will do what I can to let you into my head and share why I took that specific player.
On behalf of Gary and myself, HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!!!
