Blogger Draft!

Earlier this week, the blogger fantasy league run by Thoughts and Sox had its draft. I think I did pretty well. I had the fourth overall pick, and came out with what may be the best fantasy team I’ve ever had! Take a look:

C Brian McCann
1B Carlos Pena
2B Dustin Pedroia
3B Aramis Ramirez
SS Marco Scutaro
OF Carl Crawford
OF Jacoby Ellsbury
OF Mike Stanton
Bench Manny Ramirez
Bench Tsuyoshi Nishioka
Bench James Loney

SP Jon Lester
SP Clay Buchholz
RP Jonathan Papelbon
RP Daniel Bard
RP Francisco Cordero
P John Lackey
P Daisuke Matsuzaka
P Drew Storen
P Kevin Gregg
P Matt Capps
P Josh Beckett
Bench Craig Kimbrel
Bench Bobby Jenks
Bench Dan Wheeler
Bench Derek Lowe

Yup. That’s thirteen Red Sox! It’s my personal record. Plus, two more former 2004 Sox. I should have steals pretty well covered. My power is slightly lacking, but maybe I’ll get lucky with Stanton. Lester is a fantastic ace, and Buchholz certainly back him up well. The Red Sox the Sox starters should help me with wins and strikeouts. Plenty of solid bullpen guys to keep the ERA and WHIP numbers reasonable. And, a complete glut of holds and saves. It’s a head-to-head league. So, on any given week, I should have a shot.

Let the real games begin!


  1. Were up against each other on Week 6. I'm pretty happy with my team too, so good luck.
