Tracking Just How I Will Finish Last.

I signed up for two fantasy baseball leagues this season (any more and I won't be able to keep track):

I run the Pine Tar Junkies in Seal Clubbers' "Show and Tell With Sean Salisbury" and manage the Signal Jammers in Sooze's "Babes Love Baseball" league. The drafts were last week, and I suspect that while I have a decent roster for both, the Pine Tar Junkies would have been better off if I had been forced to miss the draft like I had with the Babes league -- I mean, here are my lineups for each team (counting releases and trades), when I drafted with the Junkies, I tried to get a fair amount of players who could double in positions.

The Junkies:
C: Joe Mauer, Jason Kendall
1B: Ryan Howard, Kevin Youkilis
2B: Julio Lugo, Mark DeRosa
SS: Orlando Cabrera, Omar Vizquel, Lugo
3B: Eric Chavez, Aubrey Huff, DeRosa, Lugo, Youkilis
LF: Barry Bonds, Garret Anderson, Youkilis
CF: Andruw Jones (drafted Juan Encarnacion and Mark Kotsay for backups, but both are hurt)
RF: J.D. Drew, Milton Bradley, DeRosa, Huff
Pitchers: Jeremy Bonderman, Dontrelle Willis, Derek Lowe, Jason Schmidt*, Mariano Rivera, Joel Zumaya, Scot Shields, Adam Wainwright, Jose Contreras, Chad Qualls, Jamie Moyer, John Maine, Pedro Feliciano.

(*Schmidt is in the process of being dealt to WBRS Sports Blog for J.J. Putz because I like having two closers.)

The Jammers:
C: Brian McCann
1B: Sean Casey, Jeff Kent
2B: Kent, Ray Durham
SS: Jose Reyes, Derek Jeter (I am considering dealing one of them)
3B: Eric Chavez, B.J. Upton
OF: Matt Holliday, Johnny Damon, Jacque Jones (dropped Willy Taveras), Dave Roberts
SP: Chris Young, Ian Snell, Jose Contreras, Javier Vazquez, Vicente Padilla
RP: Trevor Hoffman, Brad Lidge, Jorge Julio (ditched Mark Prior), Octavio Dotel

(Oh, and Sooze, I will send my money soon, as soon as I get over my hate of PayPal.)

No hurry. I hate paypal, too. But we really shouldn't have any problems with it. I'm covering the $7 that will get stolen from us in transfer fees. Cause I'm cool like that. I'm fresh like that. I'm jive like that. I'm funk like that. I'm cool like that.
