I drafted my fantasy baseball team this past weekend. After a dramatic snafu (I lost internet access from rounds 3-5 leaving me with some late round picks in those places) I ended up with the following opening day lineup. What do you think of my chances?

C Jason Varitek
1B Jorge Cantu
2B Ian Stewart
3B Ty Wigginton
SS Khalil Greene
CI Adam LaRoche
MI Jason Bartlett
LF Ryan Braun
CF Adam Rowand
RF Milton Bradley
OF Carl Crawford
Util Jim Thome
BN Matt Weiters (C)
BN Rocco Baldelli (Util)

SP David Price
SP Joba Chamberlain
SP Johnny Cueto
SP John Smoltz
SP Justin Masterson
RP Heath Bell
RP Hideki Okajima
P Dontrelle Willis

Not good, huh? I don't have a chance.

Isn't Jim Thome like 75 years old?

Fantasy is such a crapshoot. Everybody gets a crazy mix of good and mediocre. Who knows- you could win it all!

Sucks like a vacuum.

You never had a chance. But you have Milton Bradley. You will have the coolest team for 40-60 games in right field this season.

I don't know, I think you have some great young talent (Weiters, Braun, Masterson). Jim Thome is actually 325 years old. It's downright biblical.

Yeah, I think my chance is that I have a team of break-out youngsters with a high mysterious ceiling. If the stars align, and Jim Thome doesn't die of brittle bones, I could hang somewhere in the middle. Do I get fantasy points for Milton Bradley's temper tantrums?
