$70 Million Really Fast Dodgers Prediction: 90-72
I don't like low caps, but I've done well the past few years at this cap with SB-heavy teams. I love my speed on this team, plus I think I got a lucky division draw, missing all 7 Cardinal teams in my league.
$80 Million To Catch a Thief Prediction: 83-79
After reading other people's team comments, I think I messed this team up. I should have drafted more of the high on-base cookies. My offense looks pretty anemic. I willprobably lose a lot of 2-1 games.
$90 Million Pedro's Rookie Year ('92 LA) Prediction: 74-88
My out-of-position SS expirement is not working out (4 errors in 6 games). My offense is good for a 70M team, but not for a 90M team. My great pitching is giving up too many unearned runs. I know better than to short-change defense. Dumb.
$100 Million 1920 NYY-StL-Cin-Pit-PhA Prediction: 91-71
This is my only team with a little pop (well, it's really only Babe). But I always love my Ruth teams. Why didn't I pick Ruth in the other themes? Anyway, I am in a division full of modern teams, so Ruth should put up strong numbers.
$110 Million Silver & the Switch Hitters Prediction: 88-74
Really, who knows what small differences are going to seperate all the Silver King teams from each other. It seems like everybody has similar teams. I am hopeful my switch hitters and defense give me a few extra wins.
$120 Million Raines, Redmond, Hornsby & Pedro Prediction: 80-82
Why didn't I take Ruth here? Seeing all the Foxxes and Ruths makes me think my offense won't be good enough.
Overall, I think I have three playoff-caliber teams. That may or may not be good enough to advance to round 2.
