I need your assistance. Tomorrow is the one day that I can not JUST be a Twins fan. That’s kinda hard for me.
It’s time to step back into Fantasyland. I have a draft at Noon.
I need to strip myself of all emotional attachment and rationally study each and every player in the American League with an equal eye in less than 24 hours. That’s near impossible when looking at the White Sux roster.
The tricky part is that “Round 1” is essentially “Round 11” because I’m in a keeper league.
I have ten players from last season who are my “keepers.” So, I need an outfielder, a first baseman, a shortstop, a DH and some pitching.
Here’s where my team stands right now:
C – Joe Mauer
2B – Robinson Cano
3B – Michael Young
OF – Delmon Young
OF – Curtis Granderson
P – Clay Buchholz
P – Phil Hughes
P – Max Scherzer
P – Brian Duensing
P – Mariano Rivera
The past two years I’ve made the playoffs and lost in the first round. Sound familiar? Who should I target?
