david aka the TYZ will become famous soon enough
I won one league and am in two finals this week and a semifinals this week. Finished 5th and 6th in my other two. Gonna lose the semifinals this week unless a miracle occurs. The two finals I'm trailing close in one and have a decent lead in the other. Happy I won at least one league, two would be nice, three would be awesome. Baseball is such a long season and fantasy is no different....just wait and wait till September and cross your fingers your players are healthy and playing well.

Pitchers and Catchers report today. March madness is right around the corner and we have the number 5 team in the country to root for.

My reds have gotten off to the worst start in my lifetime. Couple that with this horrible weather and it is shaping up to be a very miserable summer. The good news is I am off to a 2-0 start in my fantasy league.

Will the Reds ever be good again? I remember growing up how dominant they were every year. Seems like they suck every year now. And I canít understand for the life of me why they committed so much money to Joey Votto. Heís a very good player but they are handcuffed by his contract.

They say 1 WAR is worth $8M. Based on that, Votto was worth $60M last year.

The contracts that kill them are Homer Bailey (who has been alright so far this year) and Devin Mesoraco. They are making over $34M combined this year. $9M more than Votto.

Also doesn't help that most of these young pitchers are struggling to break through.

Joey Votto and his contract are the very last thing I blame for the Reds being terrible. Imagine where they'd be without him. They might fall out of last place.

Who all do you have?

I'm only in 1 league this year. I won the CBS Podcast league last year and those losers didn't invite me back to defend my title bc I talked shit the whole time while I was beating their asses.

The league I'm in is 10 team roto 7x7 (OBP, SLG, QS, Holds as extra categories)

I have:

C G Sanchez
1B Votto
2B Dozier
3B Rendon
SS Story
OF Bryant, Pham, D Santana
Util Carpenter
Bench Reddick, DeJong
DL Zunino, D Murphy
NA Acuna, Senzel

SP C Martinez, Nola, Lester, S Gray, Manaea, C Anderson, Lynn
RP E Diaz, Neris, Brach, Tepera, M Barnes, A Reed

I'll win.

How many teams in the league? Seems deeper than mine.

I think Romano is starting to find his footing a little bit. Bailey, Castillo, Mahle, and Romano could be an alright 1-4 for now.
