Fingers of Fury!!!!!!!!!!

Got so pumped up at doing a Blog again I was inspired to make some trades.

Trade #1 MLB.com Office League 12 Team 5 x 5 Mixed Non-Keeper. 9 points out of 4th 30 out of 1st.

Traded Jose Vidro, Joe Mauer and David DeJesus for AJ Pierzynski, Bill Hall and David Dellucci. Ph_113240 Goal was to get Runs and Power and I think I accomplished that at the expense of average which I can live with. I also should come out on top with steals.

Anecdotes: Got Vidro and DeJesus off the wire. Drafted Mauer.

Trade #2 MLB.com Office League 12 Team 5 x 5 Mixed Non-Keeper. 9 points out of 4th 30 out of 1st.

Traded Barry Zito, Jason Marquis and Corey Koskie for Scott Rolen Ph_121409 and Raul Ibanez. Goal was to get Runs and Power like the above trade and trim some weak bats from my lineup like Luis Matos and Jonny Gomes.

Anecdotes: Got Koskie and Marquis off the wire. Drafted Zito hated to see him go but got the start against the Angels Wednesday night.

Trade #3 AL Only 12 Team 5 x 5 Keeper.  3.5 points out of 1st.

Traded Curtis Granderson at a buck, Neal Cotts at a buck and Alex Gonzalez of TB at a buck for Carl Crawford Ph_408307 at 41 bucks. This probably will get vetoed but I will then trade same three to another GM for Garret Anderson at 22 bucks and if that fails I’ll go back to Crawford owner shorten the deal and get Richard Hidalgo who I killed in yesterday’s Blog but still can’t control myself.

Anecdotes: I want to win this league more then any other fantasy baseball league in my life! No offense 411 League.

Thoughts?????????????

Sorry I’ve been gone so long.

First I wanted to apologize for not posting but I promise you I have been very busy. One thing that has been keeping me from Blogging has been traveling from city to city. Some observations from those travels. Joe Mauer and Jeremy Bonderman are very good ballplayers. I got to see both of them in person and was extremely impressed. Rztprldp Both approaches are solid and encouraging and I recommend them highly from here on out regardless of the numbers right now. Here are the box scores of the games I got to see in person. Mauer box score. Bonderman box score.

  Secondly I want to fess up to some bad advice. I had no idea that Chris Carpenter Ph_112020 could be THIS good. I thought maybe last year was a fluke or that he would get hurt. How wrong was I?

I also didn’t think Richard Hidalgo would be THIS bad. He is in a tremendous hitters park in Arlington. Hidalgo has killed me! I went on numerous radio shows saying this guy is going to go nuts in Ameriquest. It’s a walk year, a great lineup blah blah blah. I am embarrassed for myself and for Hidalgo.

Finally one thing I am on the fence on is Matt Clement. I have always been a big fan of Clement and thought he would do great anywhere except Fenway.  He has had 3 awful starts at home (4/26, 7/1 and 7/16) compared to one on the road. Ph_136725 So I am on the fence because I wasn’t thrilled he went to Boston because I wanted him on my teams and then stayed away but all in all he is 10-3 with a respectful these days 4.21 ERA and 101 K’s in 199.2 IP.

Good to be back
