Enjoyed the show Rob & Gregg, as always! I like the way you 2 have seemingly become a little more casual with your podcast, meaning you 2 can casually cut up on just about anything including baseball. It just shows that you guys have some personality & your just not so straight laced with baseball facts & statistics.

I feel your pain on the Beat the Geeks league. The first 2 weeks I stayed in 2nd place. Now I am somehow in 9th I believe. I'm starting to think I'm just not anygood at the 5x5 roto stuff. I thought I drafted a pretty good team that could atleast stay in the top half of the league. Now I'm not so sure. I'm really trying to patient with my players, even though I did cut bait with LaRoche. I just see all of these other guys in the league picking up players right & left. Then I question myself. Am I staying on top of things or am I just trying to stay patient? I just don't feel I have anybody I can cut.

Maybe the Takalakaman was right about me & my draft.

I drafted Hanley Ramirez first because I wanted steals right away. There are so few prime basestealers in baseball & I wanted to make damn sure I got one of them. That was my biggest problem in the league last season(lack of steals). I thought I had a well rounded draft. I got Hanley Ramirez & Brandon Phillips for steals. Plus, those 2 guys can hit the baseball fairly well. I liked the prospects of Phillips hitting in Cincinnati. I got Aramis Ramirez at 3rd for power numbers. I got LaRoche late in the draft thinking he would tear it up in Pittsburgh. I was thinking sleeper there. I got Vernon Wells for average & power. Jason Bay, decent power & good average I was thinking, Alex Rios, decent power & average. Wells & Rios can also throw in a few steals. Eric Byrnes, good all around.

My pitching: Roy Halladay, CC Sabathia, Dontrelle Willis. 3 decent closers, Todd Jones, Tom Gordan, JJ Putz. Throw in Jeol Zumaya & Derrick Turnbow.

I thought I had a pretty good team that should be pretty good in every category. What am I doing wrong? Any advice?

The difference maker in a 10-11 team 5x5 league is that you should have at least one or two upper tier guys. By drafting Hanley as early as you did (as a #1), this was the mistake.

Solidifying steals is a good idea, but preferably at the #2 at the highest. This is why I don't like Carl Crawford (this year, at least) as a #1... yes, this was Gregg's idea and not mine.

I still like your team... your pitching will take you far, I think... so, at this point, my advice would be to ride your team's coattails as they heat up... then, trade for need.
