Only "usually" and "little"?  I would think it would be "always" and "zero"... 

In any event, please excuse me, I didn't realize I was addressing Mr. Larry Jones, Sr.  Your son is a fine ballplayer, sir, you should be proud.

OK help me out, did the yahoo auto draft but ended up a little light at 3B and SP. Good power and speed in the line-up but I am not a big fan of Gordon. Is Kennedy a good rookie sleeper for the yankmees? Whatya think?

Mixed league = Every team in the league is an all-star team = Dullsville.  It's a lot more fun to play in a deep NL-only or AL-only league, where every team has a few Jorge Cantus or Norris Hoppers or Damion Easleys or whathaveyou.

I disagree, you get the top man in the draft and the season is over in a single deep pool. Hustling with utilty infielders and middle inning stoppers is not going to change the ending. All the emphasis is on the luck of the draft. With a pool of all the players in a mixed league you can change things drasticly.

What do I think?

A)  Gordon is fine.  Stay with him.

B)  I'd give Kennedy a shot.  Took him in 2 drafts already in case he IS in fact a mini-Maddux.

C)  I like your no-stud starting staff. 

D)  Your sleeper hitter is Hermida. I'd use him as the DH/UTIL from the getgo.

So, as often is the case, some d**khead in one of my league drafts, then waives an entire team.

I asked the commish to place thew players back on his team, then lock him, but this was not done

So we have a 10-team league where 1 team has THREE players the entire year (those he could not drop), mucking up all the categories, while just 2 owners chose to grab the studs he waived (I waited, got 2 crumbs in Kinslewr and Wainwright).

Not sure it is worth continuing in the league (ESPN-run).  Just puzzled why the guy running it did not take my advice, stifle the idiot whow as just looking for attention by dumping on a league.

Thanx kid; ln my next auto draft though I put Gordon on the reject list, I think he might be overrated based on his rookie year. I picked up Feliz just in case, is Encarcion better? Hermida is getting a lot of good ink but Justin is too solid at DH now. All the good K guys are gone.

Oh lord, my worst autodraft ever;
