I took Adam Jones in my Yahoo draft. Hope you're right JT!
He's still pretty useful in a 5X5. Just don't take him before the third or fourth round in an OBP league.
The draft robot took him in the 2nd round!!!  My first pick was Carlos Gonzalez, and 3rd pick was Giancarlo Stanton so my OF is stacked!

I'm worried about your infield if your first three picks were outfielders.

Don't worry.  It's just a fantasy baseball game.    One that you're not even involved in, you worrywart you.

Adam Jones' last two seasons were almost identical, with low 30s HR, around 100 RBI and low teens SB. Jumping up to 40 HR, 120 RBI and 20 SB seems unlikely. And even if he does, he still won't be close to Mike Trout's production.
How have things worked out for Trout the last 2 years? Angels aren't sniffing the playoffs and that matters to a lot of voters.

Huh?  Trout's numbers are much better.

When the gap is that large (and the gap between Jones and Trout has been and will be very large), voters don't care about standings. In 2012, Jones literally had his best year ever and the Orioles finished in second. He got exactly zero 1st place MVP votes.

I predict baseball season will come and go without me caring, and that the Mariners will be out of the race by June.

I predict that MikeT23's 45 year streak of never getting hit in the face by a ground ball will come to a bloody, bone-crunching but spectacular end.

Unlikely.  I have some magical skill set that moves my face out of the way of projectiles from pretty much any distance.   

Did you hear that badluck got hit in the face by a ball that was struck some 200+ feet away?   I guess it got on him quick.

3/25/2014 6:57 PM
I'd say I have no idea why God blessed me with such a magical skill but, apparently, He just gave me badluck's share of it.

He didn't...you're just a beer-league fucktard arguing over making fun of a guy when you're CLEARLY wrong on EVERY level. Common sense people realize this. You're a troll...nothing but. END OF STORY!!!

You're an old, balding, wannabe rocker dumbass so your opinion doesn't matter.

That's end of story.
