Card Blog League

so last night was the live draft of the second annual Card Bloggers Fantasy Baseball League sponsered by none other than Punk Rock Paint.

12 sportscard blogs going head to head, all season long. Let's see who I'm bringing to battle.

Starting Lineup;

Catcher - Brian McCann - always nice to get one of the top two catchers in baseball... if you don't get one of these two, wait until the last round to draft one because the rest don't matter.

1st base - Michael Cuddyer - 32 Homers 100 rbi's... okay pick

2nd base - Ian Kinsler - my SB guy, hopefully the average climbs this year.

3rd base - Alex Rodriguez - I missed the first round and Arod was my autopick. Could be worse.

SS - Yunel Escobar - 100 runs scored, 85 rbi's and a .300 avg. Nice.

OF - Josh Hamilton - I hope he's not injured anymore.

OF - Jason Kubel - 30 homers, 100 rbi's and a .300 average. Why have I not heard of him?

OF - Jason Heyward - I had to.... I just had to...

Utility - Adam LaRoche - 25-30 homers and 85 rbi's, all in the second half.

BENCH - Jeff Francoeur, Alcides Escobar, and Martin Prado

SP - Josh Johnson - time to step up young man.

SP - Jair Jurrjens - quickly becoming an ace... please be healthy

SP - Tommy Hanson - 'nuff said.

SP - J.A. Happ - another youngin'

SP - Rickey Romero - I couldn't stop...

SP - Madison Bumgarner - I hope he finds where he left his fastball...

SP - Jorge Del La Rosa - 16 wins and 200 K's last year? In Colorado???

RP - Rafael Soriano

RP - Ryan Franklin

RP - David Aardsma

RP - Peter Moylan

Ladies and Gentlemen... your 2010 Card Blog League Champions

Wow! What a solid infield. I recommend a little upgrade in the outfield.

Wow, there is no mistaking you for a Rockies fan, huh? I have Heyward too, in my league, and drafted him relatively high, and I'm a Mets fan. I also kept Hanson and McCann (I am in an NL only keeper league).

Zoinks! That is a very talented young starting staff. A bit risky because of the inexperience and youth, but the upside is so high.

With that lineup, if the staff meets expectations you will be King of the Hill!

yeah, while I was drafting my infield, everyone else was drafting outfielders... so it ain't getting much better than this in the OF.
