As an added note, I've transformed my team completely since draft day. It is my new goal to obtain all Cleveland Indians players because I feel they are due for a great offensive season. I traded away Byrnes, Ryan Howard, Josh Hamilton, Maddux, Jeff Francis, and McCann and I picked up Victor Martinez, Travis Hafner, Mike Lowell, AJ Burnett, Fausto Carmona, and Johnny Damon in two separate trades. On the whole, I'm happy with the new six vis a vis the old six players, so I'm even more confident heading into the season!

I think you owe me Ben... I was highly contemplating drafting good ol' Jose Reyes but also figured he was due for an injury this season, so I passed on him to get Utley... Slightly better health I'd say... But in regards to payment of my passing on him, I'll accept a Catcher or an OF... Or for anyone else interested in my players... I'll accept any trade offers for those positions... Let me know!!!

Even with his end of the season struggles, I couldn't be happier to land Jose Reyes and his ridiculous amount of steals with the #7 pick. I really thought that Jordan or Adam (Mets fan) would take him. Given that this is an OBP league, I really wish I could have drafted Barry Bonds!!!!!!! Just kidding. Since Bonds probably won't get signed, David Ortiz is probably the OBP leader now so that was a nice pickup as well.
