Baseball 2008: Sluggers

Sorry for the light blogging. I've been participating in an on-line fantasy baseball draft, watching some college hoops and attending an academic conference in San Francisco.

Here are the 2008A Louisville Sluggers, of the Original Bitnet Fantasy Baseball League. The owners in this 24 team mixed-league draft 28 players, but play head-to-head with a more limited lineup of 9 hitters, 5 starting pitchers and 3 relievers.

Offensively, the OBFLB uses home runs, steals, batting average, "runs produced average" (runs plus RBI minus homers divided by at bats), and plate appearances. For pitchers, we use wins, saves, ERA, "ratio" and innings pitched. The PA and IP categories are new this year.

Here's my regular starting lineup and substitutes. The 14 players in blue were my retained players:

C Miguel Montero (ARI)
1B Billy Butler (KC)
2B Jose Lopez (SEA)
3B Edwin Encarnacion (CIN)
SS Troy Tulowitzki (COL)
OF Carlos Beltran (NYM)
OF Jeremy Hermida (FLA)
OF Carlos Gomez (MIN)
DH Joey Votto (CIN)

SP Josh Beckett (BOS)
SP Fausto Carmona (CLE)
SP Rich Hill (CHC)
SP Rich Harden (OAK)
SP Tim Lincecum (SF)
RP Joaquin Benoit (TEX)
RP Taylor Tankersley (FLA)
RP Manny Delcarmen (BOS)

C Mike Rivera (MIL)
1B Daric Barton (OAK)
2B Matt Antonelli (SD) (minors)
IF Wilson Betemit (NYY)
OF Adam Jones (BAL)
OF Gabe Gross (MIL)
OF Adam Lind (TOR) (minors)
UT Alfredo Amezega (FLO)
SP Ricky Nolasco (FLO)
SP Rick Porcello (DET) (minors)
RP Joel Peralta (minors)

I may end up using Barton more than Votto and Jones more than Gomez.

I may regret cutting Jeremy Accardo.
