The OBFLB crowns champions for both the "A" first half and "B" second half of the baseball season, divided by the All Star game. For obvious reason, I can only report results of the draft in preparation for the first half season. As I list the team roster, keep in mind that the OBFLB is a 24 team head-to-head fantasy baseball league using 10 categories: home runs, stolen bases, batting average, runs produced average, plate appearances, innings pitched, wins, saves, earned run average and "ratio."
Here are the 2012 Sluggers (players in red were retained from 2011). Since I kept 11 players, I started the draft in round 12:
C: Nick Hundley(16th round)
1B: Joey Votto (CIN)
2B: Jason Kipnis (CLE)3B: Scott Rolen (CIN) (17th round)
SS: Troy Tulowitzki (COL)

Already, Blanks has been lost for the season and I replaced him with Todd Frazier (CIN).
