I thought I would post my NFBC main event team for some thoughts - In my opinion, couldn't have asked for a better 1st 7 picks and hope I backed it up good enough (from the 3 spot):

1 - Pujols - very happy with this start, of course
2 - McCutchen - surprised he got to me here - get some 5 category balance to match Pujols
3 - Beltre - was planning to get him with pick #2 and I get him at pick #3
4 - JWeaver - gambled that pitching would drop and it did
5 - Haren - was hoping to get 1 top 10 pitcher and got #2 with this pick
6 - MMontero - best catcher left on the board - big gap to Avila and Molina
7 - Kennedy - backed up the Angels here - what a #3
8 - Jeter - really wanted Maybin here but he went 2 spots before me
9 - JWeeks - between Jeter and JWeeks, locked up MI and got some needed steals
10 - KJohnson - went for the HR/SB combo and can afford the bad avg at this point
11 - JWalden
12 - KFarnsworth
13 - Hellickson
14 - JWillingham
15 - Moustakas
16 - Lucroy
17 - JimJohnson
18 - Span
19 - Raburn
20 - EJackson
21 - Vogelsong
22 - DavMurphy
23 - Samarzija
24 - Helton
25 - Dirks
26 - JWestbrook
27 - JJay
28 - SDuncan
29 - Bartlett
30 - Salas

Well I think you had a Very Good draft Mark. Surprised that some of those players fell but that is your good fortune....and I like a lot of your later picks as well.

GOOD LUCK

Nice team. You were even able to get 3 closers which is a nice bonus.
If your top 3 SP stay healthy and perform the way you think they will, I think this one could contend.

I think Mark owes it all to his facilitator ;)

Just kidding - BUT I did get a front row seat to Mark's draft.

Perry and Southpaw - thanks for the comments - everyone usually likes their team walking out of a draft but always nice to hear others thinking the team is solid.

Ryan - nice seeing you again and great job facilitating - very nice pace and the humor you brought to the table was a good touch in making a fun day even better.

humor? 8-)

Speaking of funny, my squad is discussed on the main page - please feel free to comment in the section below the piece.

Yes - we had a good table with some very good drafters. I think it was not by accident that Tom had we work the table with Scott Newman's teenage daughters on sticker duty, as I think he guessed (correctly I think) that I would work best with the two of them. They did a great job IMO. We had a lot of fun, and more than a few laughs at the expense of the guy in the number one slot. He opened the draft with Hanley Ramirez at NO 1, which of course became the talk of the entire room. He made some other head scratching picks throughout the day, and I commented to someone afterwards that I think he was obviously new to the event, and the wheel kind of ate him up as the draft progressed. I think this helped both Mark and the team at No 2 as this guy missed on a lot of players throughout. Not sure if everyone at the table knew it or not, but you had a couple of heavy hitters in there. Larry "The Sandlot Shrink" Schecter was Team 5. I recognized Larry after meeting him the previous weekend at Foley's. We also had Glenn Schroter, aka "The King of Queens" from the boards, as Team 10. Glenn is a great guy and a smart and successful drafter. As a facilitator, I would say that it is always clear the guys who are prepared and come in with a plan. Mark was definitely among this group. I would say the Jeter pick was the only time I think Mark didn't pick a guy he really liked when he called the name out. So good Luck Mark and keep us up to date with the progress of your team here throughout the season.

In his post a few weeks ago, Ryan asked to provide updates to this team and there isn't going to be a better update than I have right now because I'm leading the Main Event. If this is my 5 minutes of fame, I'll take it. :mrgreen:

The encouraging part of my strong start is that Pujols and Haren have done nothing, so when they hopefully wake up, it will offset the natural regresssion of some of my players, most notably Willingham and JWestbrook.

The only update through FAAB is getting Fernardo Rodney for my easy drop of Fernando Salas, who gave me a horrible inning week 1 before I kicked him to the curb.

Congrats Mark and now keep up the hard work - let's hope you get to manage a contending team all year

and PS I don't think Westbrook will be regressing that much - I think he will have a very good year at least versus the groupthink opinions and projections. He lost some weight before reporting and added a new pitch and has looked very good in the innings I have seen him
