For He's a Jolly Oberkfellow!

An inordinate amount of my emotional life--pretty much every March through October, since my teams play into October--is ruled by the successes or failures of my fantasy baseball team. Luckily since joining the league I'm in now in 2002 (and I've played fantasy long enough to have been able to have Tom Seaver on a team way back when), I have only missed the play-offs once and won the World Series twice. It's not quite a dynasty, but it's a damn good time for $25 a year. (Way cheaper than a Spitzer habit, and you never have to do that ulgy press conference.)

So, that said, we had our draft tonight, and that means, here are the opening of the season, 2008 Oberkfells (any resemblance to the 2007 Oberkfells is purely coincidental)!

James Loney
Casey Kotchman
Kelly Johnson
Asdrubal Cabrera
Khalil Greene
Julio Lugo
David Wright
Miguel Cabrera
Andy LaRoche
Brian McCann
Josh Willingham
Adam Jones
Jack Cust
Ryan Church
Carlos Beltran
Jay Bruce
Cory Hart
Kosuke Fukodome
Johan Santana
Scott Kazmir
Clay Buchholz
Jeff Francis
Jeremy Bonderman
Zack Grienke
Rafael Soriano
Jonathan Broxton
George Sherill
Brandon Lyon

That's a lot of talent (and a lot of Mets, past & present) in that particular bunch).

Nicely done, sir.

Yeah, Rickey took off midway through the draft and hasn't gotten a chance to see what his autodrafts were... How did Rickey make out?

Mike, you found 6 of my 7 freezers from last year--add in Cory Hart and you've got the whole bunch. PECOTA better be right on Hart, not that a 25/25 outfielder is a bad thing.

And have you thought about the Mets if their rotation this year would be Santana, Kazmir, Pedro, Maine and Oh-Pea?

Goddam Jim Duquette.

Rickey, you can go check your team on Yahoo Sports--get used to spending a lot of time there making sure who is active any given day. From what I recall, there was a lot of cursing of the auto-pick as it took a player one of the rest of us wanted.

Rickey's apologies for the autodrafting.

The only problem is that Rickey's nefarious work internet filter blocks yahoo fantasy baseball, so he'll need to stay on top of matters from home.

Anon from a million years ago--we get to freeze 7 guys from season to season and Beltran, Wright, and Santana have been Oberkfells for years--Beltran back to his KC days, Santana to his middle reliever days, and Wright from the day he got up to the bigs.
