…Where Life's a Pitch

My $50 Fantasy Baseball Team: Stadium Fantasium

Wednesday (March 27) was the last of my three drafts for the 2018 fantasy baseball season. This league is a Yahoo 12-team head-to-head public money league. My team in this league is Stadium Fantasium. The entry fee for this league was $50 and the top three teams will win $300, $180 or $70. In this draft, I had the sixth pick.

Stadium Fantasium Draft
1. (6) Mookie Betts (Bos – OF)
2. (19) Anthony Rizzo (ChC – 1B,2B)
3. (30) Cody Bellinger (LAD – 1B,OF)
4. (43) Kenley Jansen (LAD – RP)
5. (54) Buster Posey (SF – C,1B)
6. (67) Edwin Encarnacion (Cle – 1B)
7. (78) Elvis Andrus (Tex – SS)
8. (91) Miguel Sanó (Min – 1B,3B)
9. (102) DJ LeMahieu (Col – 2B)
10. (115) Joey Gallo (Tex – 1B,3B,OF)
11. (126) Rich Hill (LAD – SP)

12. (139) Trevor Bauer (Cle – SP)
13. (150) Ian Desmond (Col – 1B,OF)
14. (163) Eduardo Núñez (Bos – 2B,3B,SS,OF)
15. (174) Jake Lamb (Ari – 3B)
16. (187) Evan Gattis (Hou – C)
17. (198) Dylan Bundy (Bal – SP)
18. (211) Kevin Gausman (Bal – SP)
19. (222) Jake Faria (TB – SP)
20. (235) Félix Hernández (Sea – SP)
21. (246) Hyun-Jin Ryu (LAD – SP)
22. (259) Michael Wacha (StL – SP)
23. (270) Brad Ziegler (Mia – RP)

This league has the usual five pitching categories (Wins, Saves Strikeouts, ERA and WHIP). We also have the usual five hitting categories (Runs, Home Runs, RBIs, Stolen Bases and Batting Average).

I hope I did alright in this draft. I may have drafted a reliever (Kenley Jansen) too early (fourth round) but he was the best player available at the time. It also looks like my starting pitchers may be weak compared to other teams because I didn’t start drafting SPs until the 11th round. Perhaps I can trade one or two of my seven(!) players who can play 1B for another SP. Like every other fantasy team manager, I have a lot of optimism and high hopes for my team. Stay tuned…
