    Yes hun they will draft accordingly, however sometimes yahoo will draft your later rounds with players that you dont need or want so if you can be there it is best but if you cant yahoo WILL do it for you!

    I'm using Yahoo's ranking... so I think I'll be fine. They just take the next best player, right????

    Ok, what's the consensus?

    Who has the strongest team if you had to judge it right now?

    Who has the weakest?

    I'm so disappointed.... I did pre rank my team.... but started picking names I knew like Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez... who are both on the DL. (figured out what that means)

    This is going to be a loooooooooonnng season for Carrie... :icon_eek: But, mark my words, this is my learning year... I'll kick all of your butts next year...;)

    Now, what is a utility player?

    I need more players, how do I work my magic deals?

    Oh the pain of it all.... :lol:

    yeah and it depends on what position he play like you can have a 1B Utility player but you can't put him at 2B

    OK.... So the utility player has limits... I can only plug him into the positions he would usually play?

    Sorry about all of these questions.... I really do plan to buy a strategy book if I can find one.

    I did OK...

    I've got a couple holes for tomorrow. Does my "utility" guy make up for one of them????

    How do I buy more players? Looking at 2B and SS. :icon_shrug:

    I have my eye on two kids that weren't drafted.... Gotta have them... :lol:

    The only thing that matters is the Red Sux are losing right now and Curt Shelling is the culprit. :abq2: :abq1:

    BTW all of my fantasy teams got hammered today and it's been rough for starting pitchers (no surprise there). It generally takes 2-4 weeks for pitchers to catch up to the hitters. Some very big names got knocked around today.

    Heck if I know on all 3 questions. I would be like the clueless leading the clueless. My whole uppersection is full. I have one opening in the pitcher area. That's it.
