Okay so I just realized that now I have a grand total of 64 Fantasy Baseball Teams. All on Yahoo. Recently midseason leagues have been forming and I signed up for a lot of those. Yahoo allows you to have 4 teams per yahoo id for each fantasy sport of the year. I play all the big ones. (shakin head in a sideways-swivel motion). I am the Big One.. Anyway.. Before the midseason drafts which started a few weeks ago I had only 24 teams on 6 ids. Well, I got caught up in the midseason drafts cause I love drafting, and I just love having super sick teams of players who are just heating up right now. I had several big big targets and several key drafts that should enable all of those teams to succeed well. It’s not like I just pick the teams and them leave them. (although i did forget about 4 of my basketball teams last season, only did 12, got bored, forgot).. Anyway. most of my original 24 are doing pretty well, many of them are leading their leagues or very close. I do have a few sticky teams that I am trying to finangle because my guy I took in the draft either isn’t performing or hasn’t yet. I’m expecting a big second half for many key players.. Okay so anyway, I drafted 40 more teams and now have 64 teams.. Here are a few of my key targets and many of the players I have on my fantasy teams..
In the drafts this would have been my top 5 regardless of what position I had.
1. Alfonso Soriano, Washington Nationals, 2B-LF-OF
2. Alex Rodriquez, NY Yankees, 3B
3 .Vladimir Guerrero, Los Angeles Angels, RF-OF
4. Manny Ramirez, Boston Red Sox, LF-OF
5. Jason Bay, Pittsburgh Pirates, LF-CF-OF
