when people place thier worth on where they draft a player.
what i mean is
i just had the 6th pick in a 10 team draft. i drafted mulder in the 10th round. (the people were idiots, prior fell to me in the second. ) my line up is solid here it is
c-liberthal
1b-huff
2b-loretta(working on an up grade here)
3b-blalock
ss-renteria
of-vlad
of-vernon wells
of-g. anderson
ut-tixeira
ut-autin kearns
ut- everett
bn-milton bradley
bn- n. johnson
bn- joe maurer

i though i should add more speed so i went after pierre. he would not give me pierre 4 mulder coz he drafted him in the 8th round, two ahead of mulder. i wasnt even serious w/ the trade just breaking the ice.. just wanted to see idf he'd trade perre and izzy for mulder. he told me he wouldnt even do pierre for mulder. i wish you could test people before they join leagues, would save alot of time and trouble.. sorry had to get this off my chest. :-° [/b]

I have Mulder 18th in starting pictures and Pierre 13th in the outfield. You don't want to have to much speed than your only going to win in stolen bases and maybe avg. on your weekly matchups. I'm not a pro.

I have Mulder as the 12th best SP and Pierre as the 22nd best OF (for H2H...Pierre would rank higher if I was playing roto...somewhere around 14th...of course, Mulder's value goes up with CG's as a category)...so ya, the guys probably not too bright...Mulder in the middle rounds is ridiculous....Some guy offered me Sosa and Mussina for Manny and Prior...what's up with that? Prior and Manny were my number 1 and 2 picks respectively...Sosa and Moose were his 2nd and 3rd rounders...I just click reject and make a mental note that dealing with that owner probably won't be too productive. Good luck with future deals.

I don't know if that's totally the case, that people who oversystematize things are bad to have. They often reveal their stupidity early on and you can smoke them, while teaching them valuable lessons.

I am not really planning on trading a lot before the season starts. There's not really much point in trying to match guys up based on what they did last year and there's still like 3 weeks to fiddle w/ stuff until the numbers even count.

If you have guys who are nuts to trade b/c they are basing it soley on where they DRAFTED somebody, all you have to do is wait until the Marlins play somebody w/ good pitching (maybe Houston during the preseason or perhaps wait until the Phillies the second weekend of the regular season) and his numbers will 'waffle' a bit and then you should be able to pick him up for less than Mulder. Or dump Mulder who will have lost perhaps the first of many 1-0 ball games already!! But make the dude toss in somebody b/c 'I know Mulder's lost a couple, but look at his damn ERA!!'

how can no one bring up the fact that prior fell to the second? Are you playing with a bunch of girls?

What annoys me is people that can't (or choose not to) spell properly. ;-)
