Fantasy Opening Day

My opening day Fantasy Baseball starting line-up.  Or should I say everyday starters since half of them aren’t actually playing on opening day.

  • C – Buster Posey
  • 1B – Joey Votto
  • 2B – Gordon Beckham
  • 3B – Ryan Zimmerman
  • SS – Alexei Ramirez
  • OF – Carl Crawford
  • OF – Alex Rios
  • OF – Chris Young
  • UTIL – Adam Dunn
  • UTIL – Nick Markakis
  • SP – Cliff Lee
  • SP – David Price
  • RP – Heath Bell
  • RP – Francisco Cordero
  • RP – Joe Nathan

And Riding the Bench.

  • Mike Aviles
  • Juan Uribe
  • Dexter Fowler
  • Kevin Gregg
  • Chris Sale
  • Jake Peavy
  • John Danks
  • Gavin Floyd

I hope I haven’t doomed my White Sox by having so many of them on my fantasy team.  Sometimes it’s the kiss of death, kind of like the Madden Curse.  This is the lineup for the main league I play, I actually play in 4 different leagues.  But the above is with my friends/family and I have been the commissioner of it since 2003.

Couple of Pirates cards

Just a quick post so I have something up here. Just sold these 2 cards last week. Picked up a 600 count box of 1970’s cards for $8. Have made quite a bit more than that on ebay with the cards. I’ve sold quite a bit of the cards already. Anyways, here they are, and obviously, they both went to the same buyer.
