Not really. He is at best the 5th best RHP of all time. No reason to take him before any other pitcher is off the board.

I had 3 pitchers ahead of him in my rankings. Solid pick. It's tough to project though through different generations

That infuriates me. There are at least two guys from his era that are better than him. BUT...when this goes to vote, ppl go with him, because of the award that is named after him.

I thought about that too, most people are gonna vote for the team with the most big names, not the overall best statistical team

It'll be tough. 2 of the guys I had over him were from this era. In a vote people will go with name recognition but that depends on who votes for this. If we open it to the public then who knows how it'll go especially with baseball. I mean will someone be looking for the best hitters or voting on the best pitching staff, or will they be carefully looking at the overall flow of the team.

Did they say this: WCTYSON is always wrong when it comes to all time starting pitching? Because then they are right. I wish Kings would pick, so I could show you how to really draft.

Also, I thought this was a fantasy draft, and I thought talking smack was a big part. If you can't stand the heat, maybe you should give up your spot to Kevin.

I can't worry about mine yet, so I will pick on the weak link so far in the draft. I am just surprised no one has taken Nolan Ryan yet. Oh, that was your second round pick. I am sorry.

He is just worried because in our BO draft he takes players like Ian Kennedy in the first round. Weak link.........too funny. Guess we will just have to see what the votes say after it is all said and done. Stop picking on Nolan by the way, the man makes a mean hotdog.

Okay, I am logging for the night unless I get a PM in the next hour or so, (I will log back on if that happens), so I will pick as soon as I get up tomorrow morning, assuming lakings picks. I cannot wait to make this draft my lady.

You are fine with that dig. I needed pitching. Just as an aside, I had 5 keepers that were in the top 15 of ESPN drafts, so I was kinda set.

-Fantasy is a numbers game. It's not that hard to figure out who the best players for each position would be *if* you get to cherry pick what year you use from their stats. In fact, i could probably fill a team with only one Babe Ruth/Lou Gehrig type and a bunch of non-HOF players that would win.

I assume this is more about having fun with it. Which means, why not pick the one pitcher they named the damn award after as the first one off the board?

Carry on.

As long as you are not concerned with winning then taking Kennedy in the first round was probably a solid pick.

Innings, Ks, I am good don't worry. I did fine last year with no #2 pitcher. At least in this draft, you already have your #3 pitcher, now if you can just pick up at #1 and #2 eventually. Cy Young, LOL!!!!

I am okay with that. My team will be better than yours. Much better. I haven't even picked and my team is better.

I will take the best pitcher of all time, The Big Train Walter Johnson. Next pick is Joltin Joe DiMaggio. Kings you are back up.
